Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It makes work visible, so everybody knows where everything is. It uses Kanban, and that makes work visible.""We use the board and card hierarchies in terms of sprints so that we can see if we have cross-functional teams that are working on the same projects together, especially when projects have dependencies. The parent-child relationship within cards is really nice so that we can see what kind of dependencies there are when we're trying to get projects finished.""My team specifically uses our board for all of our Remedy tickets that come in. We had a card for every ticket that we get, and we're able to add the link to that specific ticket there.If I'm out of office, for example, and someone else needs to work a ticket or someone is being contacted to work on a ticket, I don't have to sign on it. Someone else can easily access that ticket because I put the link in there. It's nice. It has a lot of great functionality in there.""Using the tool seems to save time versus trying to do things in a regular manner. It is highly collaborative; everybody can see things in one place. It is a highly functional, but pretty simple tool. That is hard to find: A tool that has a lot of functions, but is also simple."

"Issue linking has enabled teams to trace issues.""The most valuable features in Jira are the dashboard, reports, and boards that help us to control the advancement of the project.""The most valuable feature is that it is somewhat flexible.""This is our way of communicating with different teams. We are a global company. I am based in San Diego, for example. A lot of the BAs are based in Paris. The development team is based in Minsk. We absolutely need to be in constant communication and on the same page.""The most valuable feature is project management.""The solution is extremely stable.""The solution offers up great transparency that makes it possible for everyone inside the departmental organization to see what's happening.""The most valuable features of this solution are workflow and reporting."

"The solution is performance-oriented and easily customized accordingly to many areas, such as performance KPI."

Cons
"I do not know what it can do in the area of scrum. Maybe it has that functionality. I have never tried to set it up. You think of LeanKit from the perspective of Kanban. I don't know if there is a template for scrum, a scaled agile framework, or any of those scaling frameworks.""Being able to track actual time on cards or sprints, instead of using just the planned start and stop date, would also be useful. I would like to see something like JIRA has with actual sprint starts and stops.""The ability to report on customizable fields and third-party extensions needs improvement. I'd like to see more of those being able to be used. I don't know how that works for Planview, but just getting a little bit more added there would be nice.""The integration with the Enterprise One product is probably an area for improvement. It's not really broken. It's just that it is such a handy tool and a great way to visually manage things. There is a very limited hookup/integration between Enterprise One, which is the master Planview tool, and LeanKit. While they are looking at this on their roadmap, it definitely needs to happen. There is a lot of opportunity there."

More Planview LeanKit Cons »

"The only thing that JIRA doesn't for us is release management in a way that I can create a list of versions easily.""We would like to see the integration of a lite-version of Confluence, just to manage some of the templates and documents.""It's also difficult to migrate through, things don't always tie-up. It's not easy to use.""Jira has recently updated their UI, but more can be done to make it even better.""When you first start to use the interface, it is confusing.""A lot of the user interface could be updated.""In general, although we use JIRA, we never really learned how to use it properly. The learning curve of the solution is high. It has a lot of power, and yet we don't understand its capabilities.""We would like to see integration between Tempo and Jira."

More Jira Cons »

"More integration is needed with other kinds of products for better collaboration."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"In general, Planview's cost structure is reasonable. You get quite a lot of functionality for the license cost that you get."

More Planview LeanKit Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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.""Its price is fine, but we would like it to be less expensive. We are paying on a yearly basis.""We are a regional research and education institute. We're using the free license provided for educational institutes.""One of my customers told me that they were receiving better pricing for a similar tool from Microsoft."
