Why integrate Trello with a user story map in Avion?

Make sense of the mess


Trello boards can be daunting, messy and packed with technical info. This is not the best view for understanding product and progress.


Give stakeholders (and yourself) a user-friendly, customer-centric view of your product and plans in Avion.

Flat backlogs are... well, flat


A long list of items in Trello boards don't give a sense of the user experience and journey your customers take. Planning without this is madness.


Create backlogs and roadmaps in Avion and leave Trello for tracking delivery and Kanban.

De-couple product planning and delivery


Trello is great for the tracking of what's happening now, during a sprint or cycle, but it's not the right environment for planning experiences and solving product problems.


Create rich plans and roadmaps in Avion that plug right into Trello. This de-couples your planning and delivery, whilst keeping them in-sync.

Manage and communicate your dependencies


Planning dependencies in Trello just isn't possible.


Avion is a visual environment with tailor-made dependency mapping. Use your story maps to communicate dependencies with wider stakeholders.

Dream up your perfect setup

We seriously sweat over the technical details over here. That's why we've created an integration with options to suit lots of different teams and projects. Whatever you want to achieve, there will be an integration option to support it.
