Pivotal Tracker

I believe Pivotal Tracker is well-suited for any project, large or small. It scales up for large companies with many users, or can cater to a single user with a personal project. On a fundamental scale, it is a great platform to just get all you ideas out on paper. Large stories can be broken down into smaller ones, and it gives good insight on what is nice-to-have vs imperative.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • The UI has been buggy (maybe releasing too quickly without adequate QA).
  • There is some rigidity in the UI which limits what it could be
  • Lots of features...some which aren't particularly useful in every scenario (velocity) which could be omitted by option to make the app simpler.

I love the simplicity, non-configurability, and price/performance of this tool. Hands down my favorite project management tool for agile.

Our organization actually does not exclusively use Pivotal. We also have teams on solutions like Trello and LeanKit. It's all preference, those who buy into all the agile features that pivotal provides, love it. Those who do not need all the overhead, simply use a different solution as their primary work log. However, every team still has a pivotal tracker as we use it as our primary system of record for audit history.

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • Team velocity has increased
  • Return on investment - based on the number of features that we've been churning out and because we're a product company, we are seeing more conversions on purchases.
