We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"An inexpensive solution that is easy to set up and use without much support."
"It's a stable solution."
"The interface and customization are the solution's most valuable features."
"The knowledge base is the solution's most valuable aspect. All of the knowledge we need is right at our fingertips."
"If a company needs to expand the solution, they are able to do so. It is quite scalable."
"The solution is very good at integrating systems."
"The feature that we like best is the stability of the product."
"The reporting is very good and you can do incident matching."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is that it is user-friendly."
"This is a flexible tool for logging and tracking issues efficiently."
"This solution has helped us a great deal in project management tracking and forecasting."
"What I really like about this solution, is how it manages the queues, the tickets and the routing."
"This is the most complete and versatile enterprise task management product and issue tracker."
"The solution offers lots of information on the website to assist with technical queries. There are also many community sites to help you troubleshoot any problems."
"The customization is the most valuable aspect of the solution. I can customize full workflows. It's very flexible. We can use mail if we want to open requests as well."
"I like the history, the dimensioning, and how I can configure a space based on my preferences or the project circumstances."
"The product is created to service small to medium-sized businesses. Although it can be used in enterprise settings this choice comes down to properly assessing needs."
"They need to include more high-end technology, different languages, the kinds of things not yet included in the product."
"The solution's business workforce should be much more capable of drag and drop functionality. The solution could be kind-of UI based rather than still being coding based. You still need an administrator profile, and you'll have to code things if you want to use the solution."
"The solution's technical support is in need of a lot of improvement."
"It's not user-friendly. Everything is overly complicated. Even for the simplest of tasks, a user will waste time. It requires a lot of clicks and a lot of steps. Often we will have to do the same thing two or three times. It's really bad."
"It's hard to find information about the solution online. We'll sometimes use the internet to look for technical answers, and we won't be able to find it."
"The customer service management (CSM) features are in need of improvement."
"The ease of customization needs improvement."
"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."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"My current company has a deal. I think the subscription per year is 20K dollars. Per year for the client is really nothing compared to other products and solutions."
"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."
