I'm just a customer and end-user. I use whichever solution the project requires. Sometimes I use Trello, and other times the project calls for something like Jira. I don't use Trello all of the time. The solution is an online tool. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate the product at a seven. The only drawback I see is the loading issues. For a different set of employees, that wouldn't matter much. They can wait five minutes for everything to load and they can do their work quickly, after five minutes of wait time. However, for my role, where I'm directly facing customers, it should be quick to get the information while I'm talking to them to address their inquiries quickly. I cannot say "I don't know." I cannot give such kind of answers to my customer when they're on a call with me. For my segment and for the roles I've been in, which are mostly the customer-facing or manager-type roles, it should be quick enough. However, for developers or testers, it need not be.
