Aha! Software


 

Aha! is a project management solution that allows users to document ideas for new projects, set goals and track project progress. It features task lists, collaboration tools, kanban boards, project roadmaps and more.

Users can capture customer and colleague ideas through a company-branded portal, and employees and customers can then rank ideas based on metrics such as value and effort required. Users can submit ideas using predefined templates, or upload images, PDF files and web presentations.

Aha! supports agile and scrum workflows. Users can generate Gantt charts to view the status of projects. Users can also customize the navigation tab, layouts and workflow of the platform using an API tool. Aha! integrates with applications such as Jira, Visual Studio, Salesforce, GitHub, Bitbucket, Slack, Trello, Dropbox and Zendesk.

Pricing is per user per month. Support is provided via video chat, phone and email.

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"

Very easy to implement and start to use. The idea tool is great and available to our customers as well, without any extra charge. It is also nice that you can easily share your roadmaps everyone in the Company.

Cons

Too many possibilities :) like reporting has so many options that you could even miss some kind of an best practise guide.

The ability to manage projects and the product roadmap in a consolidated view is extremely beneficial. This has helped me consolidate the use of multiple tools into a single platform.

Cons

More bi-directional integrations with other project and product management tools, like Trello and JIRA. It seems like Aha is already making strides in this direction and it should be a matter of time before these integrations become more mature.

Helps immensely in terms of focusing the process of defining a product vision, breaking it down into a strategy, and finally turning into an actionable plan...

Cons

Could benefit from an additional basic pricing tier (is a very big jump from trial to premium): they do offer a startup pricing model that can be applied for as well that helps on this front.

Pros

I used Aha! in my previous job as a Product Manager. When I started my own company, Aha! was the obvious choice for me to use to build our short and long term roadmaps. Aha! guides you through roadmap creation starting from your strategy, vision and business environment. The way Aha! is set up makes you think through all critical aspects of your business like the competitive landscape, and take them into account in your roadmap planning. Going through the roadmap process in Aha! ensures that we stay focused on the right things that bring us the most value.

Aha! Customer Success Team is legendary. In my 20+ years of career I've never experienced anything like it. True professionals who know what they're doing. The team responds to issues within minutes. They resolve the issues within minutes. They want you to be successful, and provide you advice and best practices to get you there. This is how customers should be treated, and Aha! is an inspiration to us in that!

Cons

I love it all! Only downside is that now I get really annoyed when contacting someother companies' customer service and my questions and requests disappear into a black hole. Aha! has shown a new standard that other companies would benefit in trying to reach!

Aha helps to drive real Product Management rigor and helps create an integrated hub that has the structure and best practices built-in. The integrations allow us to continue to leverage other systems (JIRA specifically) for the rest of or development and product lifecycle.

Cons

The software itself is great, and it has proven value, but with a large product team Aha can get costly quickly.

You can quickly get going bring value right away with the starter roadmap. The software gives you a great framework for product management and the integration in to Jira is great. I like that they keep adding to it's capabilities without a need to redo your existing content.

Cons

Getting your product data model laid out right needs better documentation and guidance. We needed to redo this a free times to get it right.

We are using the software to manage our strategic roadmap and user enhancement requests. The software was extremely easy to initially setup. The vast array of customizations available were a huge draw for our team. The customer support has been fantastic. We usually receive a response to a question within hours.

Cons

We will be integrating this with TFS and from our research, the integration could be stronger. The Aha team is currently working on the integration so we are confident this will be satisfactory shortly.

I like the tight integration it has with Jira. We are able to create Features in Aha and push them to Jira. It creates all the links between the two and had both way synchronization.

Cons

It can be a little hard to navigate at first, but once you understand the menu it gets easier. Also the Jira integration takes a bit to figure out.

Aha! has enabled us to organize all ideas, clear our minds and it helped us to easily draw our roadmap and job.

Pros

We have used Aha! for managing our ideas while we developed our products and we have had a great help from this tool!
Aha! enables our creative team to organize all ideas and link high-level strategy directly to the team's work, creating visual roadmaps that can be easily shared. It also integrates with engineering tools, so product and development teams can stay on the same page. Based on our experience is the best way to get out of Excel and PPT for roadmap planning.
We highly recommend Aha!

Cons

Sometime they change a little the features, so you have to newly understand how to do things to properly work again.

I've been way more effective at communicating my product strategy with the capabilities in excel. A lot less manual cleanup to get my message out. And we've been able to expand into a more robust formal competitor and client tracking too!

Pros

So easy to use. After playing around with the trial version, we started setting up our own instance. We've changed our approaches here and there, but the ease of reporting, audit tracking of all activity, and the visibility of organizing releases and requirements has been a major improvement over the spreadsheet roadmaps I had before.

Cons

More flexibility in the views of roadmaps would be great - I have to do a lot of ppt and the notebooks or images don't always align well with our corporate ppt.

Finally a tool that actually supports Product Managers properly.

Pros

Supports the Product Management process really, really well and helps communicate what's going on. Very flexible and can model most processes.
The external idea portal integration is neat, and so is the ability to integrate with external tools like Zendesk.
Support is very, very fast and helpful with product usage questions.

Cons

It's a bit Jira-like in that it is hyperflexible with everything. It's very difficult to grasp what's happening for anyone who isn't a PM, and even for PMs there's some things in there that aren't particularly intuitive (some of the filtering and reporting UI for example, or the fact that there's a tiny dropdown that defines whether you're looking at the company or product, and also impacts your settings screen etc).
I also reported a few UX bugs to the team and received the standard "it's a feature, not a bug" response which was a shame. This is I think the downside of having Product Managers as your Customer Success people.

Increased ability to manage projects effectively and an ability to handle more projects without a decrease in organization. Upscaling the company's activities as we grow, Aha! is able to positively affect a single project, and also adds benefit when managing multiple projects in an environment that may be stretched for resources at any given time. Aha! can grow with your company.

Pros

Vast amount of functionality related to almost all aspects of project management. The scheduling tools to set up different timelines and dependencies on a project is the best I have seen in a single self-contained project management tool. Apart from basic time management and scheduling tools there are also a wide array of data analysis that can produce graphs, charts, and reports on project details recorded into Aha!, providing info previously unrecorded or not taken advantage of while using previous platforms. This allows you to see how much time you spend, your pain points, and areas of improvement for a single project or for the entire company as a whole.

Cons

As with any complicated software, the software has a steep learning curve and it is difficult to build new processes in a company for a program with this much coverage and that touches so many aspects of the company. Oftentimes when we began using the product for a certain purpose we found that it was often required to make adjustments in other areas of the company to effectively use the software. A good example would be our adjustment of protocols in the company with JIRA to effectively leverage functionality in Aha!. This often meant work required in those areas that was not initially foreseen. However, when was said and done - after on-boarding the product the benefit was a net increase in our ability to effectively manage projects.

Aha! has streamlined our release management process, while at the same time allowing us to track our product vision for each release. We can now link that vision directly to product enhancements included in each release, ensuring that our product moves forward and is properly aligned with our product roadmap. Reporting capabilities allow us to communicate on a given release in a manner that is easy to produce and share.

Cons

One con is that data backups are only available at the Enterprise Plus license tier, it would be nice if this type of security was offered at other license tiers.
