Pros

The crowd sourcing ideas management is excellent and the help staff are very responsive to help requests.

Cons

We’ve spent so much time over the last year trying to get AHA! to work in way that can help us that it’s killing our productivity. We’re actually spending more time on AHA! than we are on our products and there are continual sync issues with JIRA. If I had my time again I think I would have stuck with confluence. Sometimes simple is better.

Aha is a powerful tool, but may be too powerful for many use cases. With that said, it is a quite a beast when you know your way around it and it really shines with an experienced user.

Pros

Aha! is great in that it provides Gantt charts and Kanban boards for all of the products. The roadmap view (which you can share with others) is also great and it allows you to selectively include product features. We are working with Jira, so the auto-push to Jira is pretty handy too.

Cons

Admittedly, the app can be pretty hard and intimidating to get into and the learning curve is pretty steep. Big projects broken down into smaller features is not as seamless as it could be. The other thing that might be a major turn down for some is the lack of the mobile app.

Pros

Lets you plan a roadmap the way you would in real life - in many tiers, from strategic to actual user stories that will be completed. These roadmaps are visually appealing at all levels! That means you can present and share your work and plans at any level of detail without having to pull out graphic design tools to abstract out the details or "make it pretty" for a presentation.

I LOVE their notebooks. After I share a roadmap or presentation, I create a notebook so I can always track a "snapshot" of the plans I presented. This lets me go back and reference how things have changed and why they changed.

I like the ability to create and track personas as well as competitive information in their wiki type pages.

Cons

I have not figured out the right level of integrations with JIRA. The integration is very robust, and a full integration is easily supported. But that means when someone changes the info in Jira, that change comes over. Not what we are looking for. This may be more a process problem, but something we struggle with.

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"

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.

Aha! has an amazing connected data model, the level of workflow is highly driven. There are plenty of visualization options and great dashboard transparency.

Pros

Aha! offers its positive effect for a single project, and also adds higher benefit when managing multiple projects in an environment that may be stretched for resources at any given time. The best part, this is system of managing a project portfolio and stay organized.

Cons

All of the functions Aha! offers need to be more accessible on mobile devices. Some functions do not work on mobile that work on laptops or desktops.

Easier management, improved communications, better roadmap visibility.

Pros

Incredibly easy to setup and use. After watching the training videos I was up and running with a test project within the hour. The interface is clean and consistent, and largely self explanatory for anyone - you don't need to be a product or project manager. The fact that it provides light functions to bring together different business areas and report on pretty much everything is a real bonus. I have used Jira in the past and a complaint often heard from non technical staff is 'it's too techie'. Aha is not - it's very simple, and as a bonus integrates with Jira if that's what your dev team use. Support is also lightning quick - quite literally all of my comms have been responded to withing the hour - sometimes within 15 minutes - and that's an answer from a person - not an automated 'we'll deal with it sometime never' response.

Cons

There is very little not to like. If I had a single criticism, *some* parts of config are not that obvious, but very little. I am actually struggling to think of another con. I guess the file manager/document management could be a little bit more feature rich if you are used to using confluence you may notice that.

Pros

Holistic approach to product management in an intuitive platform that allows product development to be built and communicated across the entire company

Cons

Not really a con, but it's so feature rich that there is initially some learning to do. Layout and UI is easy to use, but it's still at first blush a bit intimidating, but that first impression is quickly dispelled.

Pros

I definitely like the most the system of pricing here and what contains in each suggested plan. If you look at the plans, you can notice that the developers take care of each size of company, starting from startup and ending with big enterprises, and they can help you as with the very beginning of work(create a plan, strategy, divide it for the certain time intervals and so on) the same as in case you are already have the successful product and you want to know how to continue to keep up this.

Cons

That very thing that makes the working process more complicated is the different levels of access to perform the specific actions on the platform. This system must make the working process easier and that is why such politics of access must be significantly rethought.

Pros

Finally a tool properly designed for Product Managers!
Use it every day to capture ideas and keep track of high level epics/ initiatives
we use it weekly during our executives meeting and that helps to keep everyone informed and re-prioritize on the spot when needed.
my personal favorite is the notebook feature that we can then share. We use it to project our roadmap on our big office TV as an information radiator to keep everybody informed of what's coming

Cons

I'm not a huge fan of everything being driven by date
I would like more flexibility around that as we are using it Kanban style and having dates on those initiatives doesn't help.
the integration with Jira also requires a bit of learning to keep what you need in sync

I am able to build my product roadmap and have it in a state where it can be shared easily with others, track the progress of features and plan ahead.

Pros

The product works well for the most of the product development lifecycle. It is customizable enough to have multiple products and product lines tracked efficiently and in detail. It's Pivot reports functionality is very powerful to view the features grouped by various parameters and generate some excellent reports.

Cons

The integration with JIRA is sometimes a little unstable, especially when it comes to custom fields that we use heavily within our organization. It could also do a better job about allowing more ways to input and represent the detailed product strategy in the Strategy part of the tool

With the help of aha, the work began to pass faster and easier. Each employee sees who is working on what, you can set up notifications, e-mail, data changes, this will help everyone in the course of the latest updates. Now it is possible to create a strategy and connect it to execution. Also, the support team is excellent.

Cons

This service does not need absolute functionality. A huge number of functions can be a little confusing and distracting, you need to get used to it. I would like to create a single report on all areas of the product, at the moment it is impossible.
