What is most valuable?

The best part of the application for me is the ability to manage the issues. Within the different layers, you can set priorities, define task management, assign tasks to the software team or to different groups or functions to help manage… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us to provide better customer service.

What needs improvement?

I think that JIRA Service Desk is a very good product and that it is full of features that work well to manage tasks. It has the flexibility to handle many different activities and it is very good at this. Especially in the latest version… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I worked in a different company and when I was there they were using a different solution. It was an airplane company in Iran. For part of my job, I was tasked with finding the best solution for managing tasks in different layers of the… more»

What other advice do I have?

I think I had the opportunity to learn a few things by working with JIRA Service Desk. It has been a good solution and supports good practices, but it is not everything every company needs. I can't find a better single solution for a better… more»

What is most valuable?

The implementation that we have is highly customized, so I can't talk to the capabilities of JIRA product independently because I'm not familiar with all of the different things that can be done with it. It's very useful in terms of the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It simply helps us shape our project management workflow.

What needs improvement?

One of the best additions to this product would be a single centralized point in which to store all the documents that are involved in progressing with tasks. For instance, if you're working on a JIRA task and you attach a document to it… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We have looked for solutions in terms of the enterprise applications that are used by my company. We already have Confluence, we have JIRA Service desk, and we have Quest KACE Endpoint Management. We also use VMware AirWatch, virtualization… more»

What other advice do I have?

When considering a solution it is best to stay as standard as possible when adopting it. The further you get off the standard path the more difficult it is to adopt or adapt to other solutions if that becomes necessary or desirable in the… more»

What is most valuable?

Transparency of the system helps both internal and external persons involved. Statistics allow us to deploy resources where needed. It shows problem zones and where more… more»

How has it helped my organization?

JIRA SD releases pressure on the IT department and generates statistics. It also makes the department more transparent and helps the employees. JIRA SD also helps for much… more»

What needs improvement?

In general, JIRA has no relation to customers or financials. Therefore, marketplace add-ons are needed to make it work for customer-facing systems.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Costs are about $50 per user per year. JIRA is sold in user tiers of 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 2000, 10,000, and unlimited users. It is bad when you have 51 users then the… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used CRM systems, like Vtiger CRM and SugarCRM. These are not intended for a development department.

What other advice do I have?

Buying a software solution is only a half part of the solution (or even less). You need to optimize usage of the software by hiring professionals who will help you to make… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Not really, as it was much better than Bugzilla which we used before.

What is most valuable?

It is simple to use. It is clear for our customer, who usually don't know English very well. The simple user interface helps them use the software.

How has it helped my organization?

We designed a single page on JIRA and classified it into three parts. One part reports software bugs, another part to report requirements about software development, and the last part for other… more»

What needs improvement?

An improvement they could add is a better management dashboard. We only use the dashboard for the administration mode. We have a dashboard that reports the state of bugs or requirements. However… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Actually in Iran we don't have copyright or intellectual property, so we can use JIRA for free. It's uncomfortable, but because we don't have any laws about copyright, we must do it. We also do this… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this as nine out of ten. If they add a dashboard for management customers, it would be a ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I searched about the top CRM in the world and compared features. Eventually, we selected JIRA.

What is most valuable?

The product is valuable for logging and tracking issues. We can use it on multiple platforms and make it accessible to other people in other streams.

How has it helped my organization?

It allows tracking and communications to be sure issues are resolved. This helps us remain on task and keeps clients happy.

What needs improvement?

The product could be improved by integrating better with mobile numbers. For example, creating a WhatsApp platform would extend the solution and make it more useful. For… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I do not have a good idea of the costs as that is not my department, but it is a valuable solution for handling and tracking multiple projects.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used the defect module for Micro Focus ALM.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten, I would rate this solution as an eight. It is a good solution and it helps to boost productivity.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not really evaluate other products when making the switch to JIRA. It seemed to be an intuitive choice.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of this solution are the JIRA Bots and the dashboard. I am satisfied with these features.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has helped us a great deal in project management tracking and forecasting.

What needs improvement?

Some of the areas that could be improved are with the customizations. For example, if I wanted to add a new user with the same name, or start a new bot, add a new caller, or even just want to add a new column, it is complicated. This area… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used different solutions, and we could have used both, but we found that JIRA was a good solution. We found it to be user-friendly, and it had a better market share. Although there are some differences, the other solution is… more»

What other advice do I have?

I started using JIRA in 2016 when I joined this company. It was a new software-house-startup company. They asked me if I would like to use JIRA or any other tool. I chose to learn JIRA and not do any R&D. I was very comfortable and the team… more»

What is most valuable?

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. The solution offers access to add-ons that are also very helpful.

What needs improvement?

The solution should be more formalized. It could be more user-friendly. If we are talking about IT service management, I think more features related to problem management need to be within the solution. If you want something for supplier… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

When we bought the solution, I recall there was one license option limited to 50 users. There is an enterprise version as well.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We previously used FS from Nexus, a Mac-specific manager, and a CS manager, among others, for various types of service management. We were trying to replace the IT Service management solutions with Jira mainly as a non-technical box for a… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are using the on-premises deployment model. It's a good, stable solution. It can help open the IT Solution management backing if you're just looking to do some enhancements. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

I believe that JIRA is one of the best project management tools. I like the history, the dimensioning, and how I can configure a space based on my preferences or the project circumstances. I can update the workflow on the project that I am… more»

How has it helped my organization?

One of the things that I love about JIRA is that it connects the team together, and this is something that I will always need.

What needs improvement?

One of the issues is that this solution keeps changing within a short period. 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. Some enhancements can… more»

What other advice do I have?

We are resellers for this solution. I would recommend the JIRA Service desk, but there is always room for improvement. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had competitor options. It was between TSL and JIRA. I wanted JIRA for the UI and its usability.
