SmartBear

The software works best in a collaborative environment where information needs to be conveyed quickly and effectively with visual and impromptu notes. If your group doesn't like to do things online and prefers the whiteboard for in-person meetings maybe this solution is overkill. In-person meetings happen frequently so this solution makes it easier to do things remotely.

      Abstract

      Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

      Support Rating

      Abstract

      Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

      Capture for Jira was just the right-sized application we needed to make our Jira implementation more productive and effective. We didn't want to migrate from Jira, so this was the right choice to build upon the infrastructure we already had. It was the best option without pouring more money into another solution.
