Aha!

Aha! is well suited for strategy and roadmap planning. We use it for our different product launches and the related work with each. Aha! Ideas is also very useful for collecting feedback on those products especially in the beta phase. We collect bugs, product and feature ideas, as well as use Aha! to rank them by vote and order them for release.

Zoho Projects

My work involves projects of 5-15 people with numerous projects running simultaneously. Prior to Zoho, I did not have a central location from which to view all project statuses at once. Zoho looks to provide this and also looks like it will deliver. I am anxious to see how our organization's use of it develops. At this time, I feel I am likely to recommend Zoho Projects because my organization has made great software decisions in the past so I have a level of trust already that the research has been done that Zoho is the best solution for our line of work.

Pros

  • Roadmap and strategic planning. It is an essential tool for product management.
  • It has near limitless customization capability.
  • The ability to create custom reports and dashboards make it a major strength in a broader adoption in our own organization

Cons

  • I think Aha tries to do too much at times. It tries a bit too hard to handle project management as well as product management and as a result can often fall short.
  • Since everything is customized, it is hard to really get the initial implementation correct, even with Enterprise onboarding support.
  • There needs to be some serious work and training around how the integrations with Trello, JIRA, and other essential tools work as it is hard to understand them in a way to explain to our own IT teams and it has caused confusion.

  • There is no ability to add custom fields in the "Bugs" module - for example, if we want to add fields such as Version Number.
  • Reporting is not integrated - its a fairly expensive add-on.
  • There is no easy way to track actual and completed dates for tasks - so historical variance analysis is not easy.

I've reviewed about 8 other project management solutions and Zoho Projects is the best I've seen without being overly complicated. Zoho Projects keeps getting better! Recent new enhancements makes it even easier to navigate. There are new keyboard shortcuts that cut my time way down. The tools are very easy to use.

The functionality is there, but it's intimidating to learn.

The interface is easy to learn! Spending a few minutes is all you need to get the basics. It's fun to explore all of the different paths to log hours and allows you to choose the path best for you. The exported task XLS has all of the information I want and need.

Support always answered in 24 hours for any inquiry-- a reasonable timeframe for most of our requests. The PM team participated actively in supporting their features, keeping them close to the product.

Alternatives Considered

Aha! is completely different compared to the other products I've evaluated. I would compare Aha! to Atlassian/JIRA. It's great for agile teams to do weekly sprints and breakdown large features/product upgrades into individual tasks.

I used Zoho projects initially because it was easy to setup and gets going for FREE. The best thing you can get out of Zoho projects is that it needs zero setup time. It is also a great tool for manage projects, however not that suitable for product management, I believe. JIRA or Youtrack are way better for such tasks. Nevertheless, I would recommend Zoho projects for someone who is looking at organizing their projects in a neat manner and get started without too much upfront cost or effort.

Return on Investment

  • We are still within the first year and have yet to be able to measure ROI specifically, but the broad team has been really supportive of the adoption.
  • There is clear potential in Aha to be used more broadly than we do now, and we have already expanded it's use into other parts of our Product Team.
  • The integration work is the current roadblock, but once that is ironed out with the help of Aha support, we should be good to go.

  • It made us stay organised with our product development from day 1.
  • It helped me get a clear picture of where we are with our product development, so that I was sure of what to cut down in a particular release.
  • It is a great tool to also stay organized with your personal tasks, which is something I used it for a long time.
