    Pros

    The ability to build an integrated Gantt style rodmap across the releases is the main functionality liked in addition to the reporting functionality and templates. The tool also features an idea portal to facilitate constantly collecting voice of customer feedback and that's a great functionality to explore.

    Cons

    The tool is limited to promoting thinking in the strategy aspect and leads one to believe that the tool is a magical solution for coming up with competitive business intelligence. For instance, SWOT is available as a template but other tools like five-forces, TECOP, PESTLEED, etc. should be available templates. But, it moves into the persona mode soon and fails to provide product strategy thoughts.

    Product roadmap tool that makes planning effortless.

    Pros

    What I enjoy most about Aha! is the ability to quickly and easily enter in product ideas, check on those statuses, add my support for other ideas, and see what we are doing in the future. This product makes it easy to see all of this without needing a product manager to help walk you thru everything.

    Cons

    The search feels like it could get an update but that is just being nitpicky. I'd like more options to fuzzy match on similar words.

    Pros

    It has a lot of great features for project managers. Reports, organization, planning, integrations, estimates. A LOT. With other team members, it can be quite daunting because there is too much information for them. Having said that I think this is a tool that can really be helpful for small or mid-size companies.

    Cons

    Some reports are not easy to set up. And it would be nice to be able to have more flexibility when creating a roadmap. It is quite easy to be behind schedule and having to update all the items in the report manually is quite consuming and prone to error.

    We inspect our project working plan and all our data regarding the same with Aha. We can manage the customer variance more better with it's help. We view our roadmap with it.

    Pros

    It is very streamlined and have a perfect functionalities like getting our product planning details. Ilike how Aha simplifies our strategic planning process for product management and product marketing. I have tried to track and share information on dozens of competitors and had a great visibility into our roadmap getting most of the details. The details are crystal clear for what more we have to do.

    Cons

    It can be more user friendly , as it requires a steep learning curve to be familiar with the product. The prices can be reduced a little more.

    Pros

    Aha! This truly is top most project management tool used by most companies as it aids product managers to deliver specifications of a product with premium quality.
    It is a roadmap to different solutions and features and helps in delivering the best possible, by satisfying the customers needs and wants.
    The overall quality of this product is outstanding and the most preferred tool in the corporate networks.
    The customer support is really brilliant when it comes to understanding the product or regarding any queries or other stuffs.

    Cons

    It is a premium tool and hence a little on the heavier side when it comes to purchasing the product especially by smaller companies. A great tool to look out for by mid and large sized companies, because it suffices every needs and provides features as per what you pay.
    The overall design is a bit complex initially when it comes to understanding this product. However, in the long run it eases through and most of the features can be easily understood and used accordingly.

    Pros

    Having been on a long journey over the years with many different types of project/product management software solutions, none of them ever seemed to be "the one". Aha takes a different approach, and focuses on management of end-customer value that is aligned against the vision you have for your company and its products.

    It's the first work management platform I've used that took this holistic approach, and actually its massively empowering. I'm now able to construct high level roadmaps for complex projects that span multi-discipline teams that can be reported to all stakeholders very clearly and easily.

    Managing the features the team are going to focus on in a customer centric way is also great. Yes, you can use Aha for task management, but often in a product management capacity it's more important to express WHAT customer outcomes & benefits we want, and then let the team figure out HOW to deliver them.

    Moreover, the customer support from the Aha team is excellent, with plenty of guides not just how to use the platform, but also how to strategically tackle typical challenges that product managers face.

    I highly recommend Aha. It's a liberating product from a team that clearly have an awesome culture based around customer success.

    Cons

    Aha is a sophisticated tool that's very flexible and configurable so it takes a little while to get fluent with everything it can do, and understand the best workflow patterns with it. That said, once you find your groove it gets much easier. The support team help with that though.
    Pricing is also in the premium end of the market, particularly for smaller companies, but then you do tend to get what you pay for.

    Pros

    Breadth of resources and educational material related to product management and roadmap. I do like the variety of reporting options and the rich features all packed into the initiatives.

    Cons

    Expensive - we end up subscribing to one user. Takes a bit deep of learning curve. I think on-boarding my team was a bit difficult and in the end it becomes a bit cumbersome when we have to do weekly product updates. Maybe at some point we may re-visit.

    Roadmap planning, feature tracking, agile planning, public ideas board.

    Pros

    Aha! is just incredibly powerful. From GANT and agile planning to long term feature and master feature roadmaps, Aha! has the firepower to roll up even the most complex roadmaps. Reporting is robust and in depth, and integrations link to your existing strategic initiatives seamlessly. Public facing roadmaps and ideas boards complete the experience to go from vision to product.

    Cons

    With complexity comes ease of use challenges. To use Aha! effectively, one has to know it well. It faces the same struggles as other software that is very powerful and feature rich. Once you figure out the navigation and feature linking, it becomes much easier to use. If you inherit an existing Aha! board, you may need a week to get accustomed.

    We were looking for a software solution supporting our Product Management team for quite a while but did not find anything fitting until we discovered aha!

    As a product manager, I love how aha! integrates the whole process from customer ideas to features to release planning. Additionally being able to capture strategy and competitors makes it a tool for literally everyone in our small start-up.

    Cons

    We ran the trial and so far I could not identify anything negative. Having an on-premise version would be nice but we are fine running it in the cloud.

    - Supports all aspects of product management especially if the product is software.

    - Surprisingly good idea/feedback management.

    Cons

    - It takes some time to master but that is normal for a tool that fully supports product management for products of any complexity.

    Captures all aspects of my project, from business model and strategies to roadmap and feature development. Very quick to get started with easy to understand guides and steps.
    Great tool for gathering ideas and user feedback through a configurable portal you can embed on your website. The ideas gathered can be voted on and elevated to the roadmap. Integration with Jira for task managment. We're a small startup, and have had lots of documents lying around for fund raising that we now can find in one place.

    Cons

    Haven't found language support yet for Norwegian (might exsist)
    Would love a plandisc feature to schefule meetings and repetive tasks etc.

    1. Central tool to manage all aspects of product life-cycle 2. Intuitive interfaces to ensure when information is added it is maintained in a consistent fashion. 3. Powerful self-service reporting to generate views for stakeholders 4. Flexible feature set which we can tailor to our business needs

    Pros

    As we are new to product development, we are so lucky to have found such a great tool. Aha! provides all the features to synergize business strategy with product development strategy. While many tools focus on selected areas of the product management life-cycle, Aha! is the only one bringing it all into focus to ensure from end-to-end consistency and traceability to what is important for success.

    Cons

    Can't say there is anything Aha! has not done. As with any tool looking to simplify a large set of processes, the learning curve can be daunting. However, their help and support makes it easy to navigate especially for newcomers.

    None really. Spent a lot of time getting this software to work for us. It is too rigid and the learning curve is steep. We want a solution that will work and are not looking for a tool we have to learn.

    Pros

    It is visually beautiful and has is fully loaded with tons of features. If you are a team that can spend some time learning the tool, I am sure it is going to help you. There are tons of training videos that are helpful. The documentation is brilliant too.
    The Support team is very helpful.

    Cons

    The learning curve is steep. By the time you are done with the training the trial is almost over. It is unnecessarily complicated product. It is not always possible to build new processes to accommodate a software tool.
    Trello is incredibly simple despite having an overly simplified Kanban board. Trello lets you organize work quickly while Ah ha forces you to learn a new tool. I'd rather work on my product than spend time learning a new tool.

    I like that all product content is in one place, and I can easily see what other teams are doing to support a product release. I can also track who is responsible for specific deliverables, so I can reach out to that person directly.

    Cons

    Overall it's hard to find specific information that I need, and it's also difficult to view all product releases and see all the necessary information (dates, deadlines, etc). I wish Aha! had a better user interface.
