Louise FozardHead Of Portfolio Management at King's Business School
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We feel that the product is a good value for the cost."
"Licensing is on a monthly basis, and it is based on what you use."
"To try this solution, use their cloud offering to get familiar. After that, it's in my view worth the money."
"I don't feel that price is an issue."
"It is not too expensive. It is just comparative to other tools like Microsoft Teams."
"I am not sure if the client is using a commercial version. I think it is on a per-user basis, and it is around 15 Canadian dollars for a user, but I'm not sure. It also has a free version."
"As a company, we get a subsidized price, and it's lower than what's quoted on their website."
"We are using the enterprise license which is nice because it ensures that we always have the latest versions of Jira software."
