Cons
"The workflow should be made to be more user-friendly. It should also have more granular scalability.""The mobile version of this product does not support asset management.""The pricing could be a little lower and the product should cover more iTel versions.""It is pretty clunky and not very intuitive. Even though I have used it for many years, I don't think it is a very good ITSM platform in general. In the telecom space, a lot of telco providers use this solution, but from my perspective, it is not very user friendly. It is a bit more laborious. There are still too many human touchpoints. There can be a little bit more automation. It would also be good to integrate it with other tools. Integration is quite difficult, especially in the telco space."

"This solution lacks features for project management.""It would be better if it had capabilities to connect to mobile applications (e.g., Whatsapp)""JIRA protects the end-user, but for the configuration, more rules could be added to improve the workflow.""I don't think the program is very scalable.""Integration possibilities with other products that are not Atlassian would be helpful. Support should also provide separate installation guides for each product even though they are easy to install.""Usability needs improvement. To configure it, you need to be well versed in Jira administration. It's not very intuitive.""The solution should be more formalized. It could be more user-friendly.""During the updates, when another version gets released, whatever I am tracking at that time gets lost and I have to type it all over again."

"Our costs are well over $250,000.""This solution has good pricing.""The licensing for FootPrints is a perpetual license with an annual support fee."

"But about the plugins, I found one plug-in — its name is Actionable Metric I think — and it is $3000. That is very expensive for users in Iran.""Actually in Iran we don't have copyright or intellectual property, so we can use JIRA for free.""It's not really expensive, especially when you compare to ServiceNow or other solutions, and it's not expensive to maintain.""The pricing is very competitive and I think that it is okay.""We may upgrade the license that we have. The license that we currently have is good for 500 agents, and it's not full yet.""The pricing is free for us because we are an associate partner for the product.""Right now, there are only two of us who are both agents on the help desk and developers. We might be on the free version because we're less than three agents or users. I'm looking at Zephyr tests, which have a $10 a month flat rate, so right now, it is $10 a month. There are lots of add-ons. They do a free version, a standard version, and a premium version. In the last company, we started on $50 a month. By the time I left, we were paying $4,500 a month. That was mainly because we had 100 users on Confluence. I bought an add-on for Jira software for which we had 10 users, and that was $5 per user per month. It was costing me $500 a month, whereas it should only be $50 a month. I don't know if licensing fee has changed. I'd like our whole company to use it, but the big problem is the licensing because the Confluence side is what is really useful, but if I add 30 users to Confluence and then buy an extension for Jira software, I've got to pay for 30 licenses, even though I've only got two users in Jira software. It is the one big disadvantage of cloud software. You always have to pay for the number of seats regardless of which product you are on. This will probably severely limit how many people would use it because I'm not going to start paying $10 per user per month for a Jira software add-on when there are only two people using it."
