Teams not using any tools are finding better ways to run planning poker.

We used finger voting on Zoom calls.
It didn't work well with virtual backgrounds, but we thought it was ok.
Once we tried Smart Guess, wasting time on this doesn't make any sense:

No setup. Just open the backlog.
One-click while looking at the story.
One-click to update story points, and we are all set!
Based on user research in the field, users of existing tools feel they slow them down.
With a new approach to planning poker, teams finally have an easy alternative.
