Pros

If you need a free bug tracking tool, I would recommend to use Redmine. It is quite easy to use and have all basic features you need for tracking defects.

Cons

Unfortunately some useful features are missing. For example, you cannot edit created defects or tasks, only write comments to them.

Pros

The best way I can put it: it's basically the toyota camry of issue tracking/project management software. It'll consistently get you from point A to point B, but it's not the flashiest or fastest.

Cons

The UI is a bit dated and the reporting features can be a hassle. The search is atrocious and would frustrate even the best searchers.

The vendor Voxeo and Aspect is a great company. Their support focused with developer driven attitude is great for companies and allows a fast development to production cycle.

Likes Least

It can be expensive however it is enterprise grade software and all enterprise software is expensive.

Recommendations

Compare to others and consider the support options and license styles.

The software is great in order to increase the productivity of the team work. The installation and updates were always an issue; now it is a bit better with docker containers. There are lot of minor issues here and there, which are probably resulting from a big list of functions. But the main issue is the interface, which is difficult for new-comers and thus hard to convince people to start using it

Pros

a broad list of functions

Cons

heavy interface

Advice to Others

probably to be used by imposing from the top

Redmine provides a simple and easy to use tracking and project management software system all built into one. Redmine's issue tracking or ticketing system gives developers a fast and flexible tool to address issues with the software. The tool can also be used to track projects and to "chunk" projects into smaller bite-sized sub-projects that increase productivity and help members of a team keep up to date with the progress of a project.

I've used Redmine with teams and found that the collaborative nature of the product can help members stay in touch and help with assigning subtasks. As a scrum manager, I found that it helps greatly in sprint planning and reporting. Also, you can generate Gant charts to visually show where a project is at any time.

The best part of Redmine is that it's open sourced and given some customization, you can quickly create a ticketing and/or program management that helps meet the needs of different members of a team. Redmine is also free to use, which makes it popular with small and large organizations that don't have vast budgets for software purchases.

Pros

1. Open-source (free)
2. Easy to use (once it's been customized)
3. Flexible (can be customized to your needs)
4. Multi-purposed (serve different roles at the same time)

Cons

1. Requires someone to administrate it.
2. Requires installation, but a cloud based version is available.

Advice to Others

You may need a tech savvy person to install and maintain Redmine or you can find a consultant who can do that too. It's an easily to maintain system, but do stay up to date with the latest version.

I am using Redmine since 4 years now on a small virtual server which has now problem serving 30 power users with about 20% cpu load.

Redmine has everything you need if you are looking for a ticket system. I use it for my advanced software engineering classes and for all my other projects, too. This system has never let me down.

You can customize workflows, ticket types, extra field and there is a great community with a lot of plugins for special needs.

I can absolutely recommend this system.

Pros

Easy to install and maintain.
Easy configuration.
Does not require a lot of hardware to run.

Cons

Looks a bit outdated but I don't do many updates.

Advice to Others

Give it a try.
