New to the product, but it's helped immensely in consolidating the places which I use to manage my eCommerce product.

Pros

The variety of tools: roadmap, release schedule, wish lists, backlog, etc.

Cons

I can't search across multiple pages of wish list items. The price is high for Enterprise users relative to other similar tools. There's not a field for sizing a feature. There should be a field for "Associated links"

A formalized product planning process, integrating strategy and greatly improving visibility to release planning, strategy, and initiatives. A better process for working together as a PM team and work visibility.

Pros

The customizable idea portals per product, the product and product line management, the idea ranking and feature ranking tools, the drag-and-drop displays and visualizations for PMs to manage their work.

Cons

The less-than-friendly release management pages and to-dos, the UI-heavy requirement and feature specification pages, instead of content-focused, and all the limitations to the VSO integration which create heavy lifting and manual re-entry in VSO itself. The notebooks are also not that friendly for collaboration, only for sharing, and are older looking with one item per page.

A massive increase in visibility and comprehension between sales/product design and the development teams. We now have better certainty about features and requirements, and there's a lot less 'lost email' that previously led to confusion and delays.

Pros

Very complete product for working on one or more product management projects. We've noticed a 'tightening up' of both our internal and external teams for communication, comprehension, and delivery as we shifted to Aha. It feels like we've barely scratched the surface of what's possible in the product especially with integrations and the various template, workflows, and automation.
We have two development teams on our first Aha project, and Aha has made it very easy to see the dependencies between teams and keep the conversations and 'to do' tasks in one place.
Customer support has been proactive, and I could get on online meeting upon request to clarify some very specific points that related to our workflow. Documentation is also very good and for a deep product there is a high degree of intuitiveness (if that's a word).

Cons

It's a big program for sure. I didn't realise how much data entry I had to do until I could everything in one place, and manage the feature/requirement/task relationships properly. That's a 'con' because I hate having clarity on how much work I need to do..
For a web application Aha is very rich/deep, so the UI takes a little time to comprehend

Simplified the product and project management process in a development environment often described as "too agile for Agile"

Pros

The ability to easily drag and drop features into and out of releases is excellent. It has made the sprint planning and review process much faster

Cons

Sometimes difficult to navigate or find the view that you are after but on the whole there's nothing to fault here.

We can share project information and status immediately within our team, also useful for visual displays for internal and external meetings.

Pros

As an IS project management team, we like Aha's ability to organize all project and portfolio information in one spot. The custom report section's timeline report is used frequently for all portfolio reviews, and it allows us to drill down to a product, release, feature with 3 clicks.
We also use the comments sections for meeting minutes and another task tracking. I would estimate we only use 50% of Aha's capabilities but are very happy with our purchase. I Also customer service is 5 star when I submit an email I get a response often within the hour.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve, but videos help. I think you need a senior resource that will take a couple weeks to sift through all the features and identify what's important for your implementation vs. nice to have. Since we are an IS PM team, we don't use strategy and ideas, we only use product, release, features & reports tabs. We have experimented with strategy and ideas features but have not had the time to fully explore.

There are a couple of items I have mentioned to customer service:
I would like the ability to store documents with the assurance I can recall if needed - currently, when I attach word docs I have to keep a backup in SharePoint based on advice from customer service.
I would like the calendar to exclude weekends as the default (or as an option) currently when I set up releases using my templates I have to go in and change start and end dates to workdays,

I think the biggest benefit to using this is the transparency that the entire organization gets from using the software.

Pros

It's not that we didn't do what the software does, but what it does is organizes it and draws all the parallels together in one very nice interface. We are currently working with all the integrations to the different software we currently use. It is a great tool to organize and see your product lifecycle in one very clean interface. The ability to view everything in the lifecycle and see not only the WHAT but the WHY makes it very powerful.

Cons

I wish they had a mobile interface. So many times in meetings I get asked about one thing or another and pulling it up on my phone is doable, but not awesome...

Helped us to think more clearly about our product development, helped us organize our thoughts and kept our team on the same page. In addition, it's notebook functionality allowed us to communicate with our investors without having to give them direct access. This software is worth every penny.

Pros

First, I never give all 5 star reviews. Second, I fell in love with Aha! in a matter of an hour. And since then I've used it for almost a month now and am even more in love.

We are using it to manage our product line. It helps us think high-level and lets us create visual roadmaps that can be easily shared. I haven't tried out the integration yet but it looks extensive - good for them. I will never use Excel or PPT again for my product roadmap planning, I highly recommend Aha!

Allows me to get a more instant/visual progress of other team's projects. It also allows me to submit ideas to team leaders who can then use it to improve our company's roadmap.

Pros

This software allows teams to quickly and visually track different projects across a multitude of different platforms in a company.

Cons

The limitations of the front end UI are a bit frustrating. Perhaps due to my early interactions with the system, or my lower level credentials, but the front end home screen sections are a bit clunky and confusing to learn at first.

We love Aha! and use it for managing our products. It helps our product team link high-level strategy directly to the team's work and create visual roadmaps that can be easily shared. It also integrates with JIRA, so product and development teams can stay on the same page. If you are looking for the best way to get out of Excel and PPT for your roadmap planning, I highly recommend Aha!

Pros

Aha! helps our product team link high-level strategy directly to the team's work and create visual roadmaps that can be easily shared. It also integrates with engineering tools, so product and development teams can stay on the same page. Main Pros are:

-Integrate well with JIRA
-Easy to create 3 dimensional report views
-Very easy to share roadmaps and reports

Cons

In the beginning , steep learning curve and confusing navigation. But it gets better with training and experience.

We have been using Aha! over the past year to simplify planning and elevate the way we run our marketing function at Panserve to the next level.

Partnering with the Aha! customer success team, as part of the concierge service, we have increased the efficiency of our marketing processes and expanded the transparency of the function and its deliverables out to the wider business - one of our core drivers for success.

We are now able to plan further ahead than ever before, manage our product roadmaps and share that roadmaps across the company so stakeholders and teams have full visibility of what is scheduled for delivery. We have realized improvements in our own product development process. In short, this has simplified the way we work internally and brought the various teams closer together towards a common goal.

If you are looking for the best way to drive your marketing roadmap forward, I highly recommend Aha!

Pros

Aha! provides that most product management tools are missing: high-level product information, strategy, goals, and initiatives

We use Aha! for a number of products in our organization where we manage more than 30 products and product lines. Aha! is great by default, but it also offers a number of customizations to cover lots of scenarios. For us, Aha! works very well for PMs, engineers, support and UX people. Other roles such as product marketing, demand generation and sales are also peeking at Aha! with soon to become their every day tool too.

We use Aha! to manage our entire product portfolio. Before Aha! we tried to "manage" our feature backlogs in spreadsheets. But with multiple product owners, it was a nightmare to build and maintain a consolidated roadmap, much less track cross-product feature dependencies and customer commits. Not only does Aha! give us an always up-to-date consolidated roadmap view, it's a great collaborative environment that really helps coordinate the efforts of multiple product owners to link high-level strategy directly to product plans. You can tell this product was built by real product owners. If you want to improve your product planning, I highly recommend Aha!

We began using Aha! to provide our customers with a portal to submit ideas, our Program Managers with a tool for managing assignments, and all while maintaining visibility for the Leadership team and Stakeholders. The product has delivered on those expectations and provided our team with a workflow that integrates very well with our onsite Team Foundation Server, that is highly integrated into our Software Development Lifecycle.

Pros

The 'cradle to grave' visibility on Ideas coming in from Customers and Features being delivered as a result.

Cons

The Reports are very useful, but managing of them is a bit confusing.

I have been using Aha for the past 3 years now in two different companies as VP product and thoroughly enjoy it.
It has all the key features a PM could desire: from the strategy setting to the creation of personas, visions, initiatives etc. to the actual feature planning and integration.

It is really easy to use and super impactful to communicate to wider audience.
The best is that it is constantly evolving with better features and they have a great support team

Introducing Aha! into our product delivery process has further reduced the gap between product & technical teams and resulted in a more predictable & stable team cadence. More importantly, our adoption of the product has helped us deliver projects on-time, whilst continuing to manage and prioritise requests from existing customers.

Prior to discovering Aha, we were planning an in-house tool which connected our product managers to development teams. After a short trial, we finally got that "Aha" moment when we hooked up Atlassian JIRA & Slack and realised that we wouldn't need to spend time away from our core business activities to develop a solution to manage ideas and product features.

We've been using the product for almost a year now and have required support twice for minor issues. In both instances, the company has been ultra-responsive, with answers coming from actual product managers at the company... even late on a Saturday night.

The product does have a slightly steep learning curve, but if you stick with it and take the time to set it up, it's well worth the upfront investment in time! Supporting everything from company vision, right down to individual feature specifications means products managers have everything they need to keep our product relevant and ahead of the curve.
