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"

It has helped us collaborate better on projects by giving everyone a look into the roadmap, deadlines and where each part of the project is at the moment.

Pros

Created a thorough tracking of our strategy, campaigns and roadmaps and integrates into our project management tools so everything flows into Aha!. Also provides a simple way for customer feedback that can also be integrated quickly into projects and tasks for our product cycles.

Cons

There isn't an easy way to get from high level to detail quickly without switching view or going to a different doc.

Pros

Aha is an easy way to manage your roadmap items. I really like how easy it is to extend this application out to end users to be able to vote on items. This product allows a software company to be very transparent with their end users and communicate about ideas, future roadmap items, etc. The UI is very easy to use and helps keep everyone organized.

Cons

I can't think of any cons. This software is way better than excel or a google sheet to manage roadmap development and customer requests.

A true aid for product and project managers. Helps to built a road to success.

Pros

I have worked with a bunch of project management tools and this really surprised me for good. It's cloud based, and UX design is simple and handy. It's not overwhelming to look at and it makes everything easier.

You can integrate Gantt style rodmaps and modify them easely. Project managers will be thrilled with its reports feature, making organization and planning a piece of cake.

It also allows you to work nose to nose with your clients which is a remarkable thing!

Cons

Maybe that mobile version only comes for iOS. No Android. It's a little pricy.

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.

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.

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.

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.
