It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

JIRA

JIRA is a perfect fit for any organization where they have a large "in-flow" of projects, tasks, requests, etc. It helps to visualize who and where the majority of the projects are and how much time is being allotted or can be allotted to a particular task. It is particularly helpful in making sure that each team member is given an equal amount of work (if that is the goal) and seeing where each project stands.

Pros

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • JIRA is an excellent tool to connect different teams and work styles in an efficient way, without being too specific for some of them.
  • It has a lot of features and settings to offer which really enable you to plan a task in a very detailed way.
  • Thanks to the different conditions of a task, the status can be tracked easily and everyone always knows who's the one who has to provide input.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • The new version of JIRA is a bit slow and not responsive.
  • A lot of functionality added has lead to slowness in the tool
  • A click here and there leads to opening a small window for adding comments which can be irritating sometimes.

I do not make decisions at my new company, so it's out of my hands. I will say that we're in dire need of a new Project Tracking suite, but I'm not sure how interested they'd be in building something from the ground up. But, if discussions turn to blowing up our current solution and going in another direction, I will be recommending JIRA, and offering to take lead in it's implementation.

I used to get immediate support from the Jira helpdesk; also most of my issues are already explained in the user manual which is really helpful.

Take your time implementing Jira. Make sure you understand how you want to handle your projects and workflows. Investing more time in the implementation can pay off in a long run. It basically took us 5 days to define and implement correctly, but that meant smooth sailing later on.

Alternatives Considered

Kyle Culpepper profile photo
What appealed to us with JIRA at first sight is pricing per user. It may sound funny, but for us this was better than pricing per number of projects. Most of our projects are ongoing. Once an initial development is done, we continue maintaining the software and keep track of tasks. So we have a steady number of people but are not sure about the number of projects we might have.

Return on Investment

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • Better communication between development and support tiers. - Positive
  • ACCOUNTABILITY!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Positive
  • Consolidation of spreadsheets, emails, word docs, etc. That we used before JIRA to track incidents and initiatives. - Positive
  • Once the business flow is formalized through a tool such as JIRA, corporate politics rears it's head angrier than ever. - Negative, though not a fault of the JIRA solution singularly.
