Accelo

It is really well suited for organizations that need to have a lot of tools but don't want a bunch of data silos. Our organization uses HubSpot as our CRM so we don't necessarily use the CRM portion of Accelo the way it is designed. Mainly because it isn't as agile as HubSpot from a CRM perspective.

ZenHub

If you have more than 2 developers this thing is basically a requirement within github to manage sprints if you use agile methodology. Why use a different website entirely when you can run your entire board right from github itself? I've tried other solutions but basing everything on github issues makes it so no duplicate work has to take place. If the UX quirks and mobile were fixed this would be 10/10 for me!If you're only one or two devs on a team it may be overkill to use, but if you're going to scale it's better to put the process in early.

Pros

No photo available
  • Makes it very easy to get a high-level overview of sprints and sprint progress, creates burndown charts, etc
  • UX is top notch, almost everything works intuitively
  • You can create issues and epics right from the interface, basically all github issue functionality is available through zenbhub
  • Embeds into github using an extension so you don't need an external site
  • Free starter plan good to test and for small dev teams

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.

  • Mobile experience is hard as it's a board layout. Could use a dedicated app.
  • Has some UX quirks that rear their heads randomly, i.e. can't convert an issue to an epic if you click the wrong button when creating
  • May have recently moved to all-paid for companies with a 14 day trial, used to be free for small teams

Almost amazing with a few hiccoughs. Mobile is a big one and also sometimes you want to run a filter or something and the outcome is not what you would expect.

Alternatives Considered

Accelo doesn't really exceed any competitors in any one area of their product, but in 2015 when we made the move this was the best option that included all the tools we wanted. However, user adoption was low in some areas due to the UI, so we scaled back Accelo and added other tools.

Way better than competition if you use github because it seamlessly integrates without doing anything. You don't need to duplicate your issues, etc. As long as your devs already use github and github issues this will be a no brainer and simple to implement. With JIRA or Trello we were doing everything twice, things got dropped, etc.

Return on Investment

  • It substantially reduced the number of systems we use to run our business.
  • It reduced the need to train our staff on a variety of platforms.
  • It gave us the ability to have a client-facing portal that directly integrates with our backend systems.

  • Saving dev time, making it easier to create a process they enjoy and use without issue (intangible)
  • Making conversations between developers and product teams/easy to facilitate (intangible)
  • Sped up the entire process (intangible)
