Aha!

Aha! is best suited for a small to medium sized tech company that is looking for an easy way to keep track of feature requests in a simple way that allows us to communicate ideas to each other easily. Having also worked at Athenahealth, a large tech company that had several many more teams, JIRA was ultimately a better tool to combine a request management system with a sprint planning system for teams that work in Agile. Otherwise, Aha! is perfect for where we are as a company and for what we are trying to achieve. One of its best strengths is that it is so easy to use

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

  • Excellent organization, because it allows us to filter by status and category
  • Easy enough to keep track of my own submitted ideas and items I've voted on
  • Beautiful comment threads to see everyone's thoughts
  • Great notification system to see what's changed and how, so I don't have to live and breathe Aha!

  • Ease of customization, without introducing a level of complexity that makes it difficult to manage.
  • Simple workflows for common tasks like adding and assigning issues.
  • Integration with other Zoho tools for organization-wide collaboration and information sharing.

Cons

  • Bug tracking needs to be improvised, JIRA has upper hand in this.
  • Notes section can be improved as we found less flexibility in Notes.
  • The integration of Tech team to use Aha! needs to be strengthened. As of now, Tech is reliable on project tracking software rather than Aha!

  • It could offer better integration with other software like Google Docs and Gmail, etc.
  • The document storage component doesn't work great with a wide variety of documents. It looks good, but in functionality we find it lacking and prefer to use more traditional cloud storage.

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! definitely does more than either Pivotal Tracker or JIRA. We still use JIRA to track tasks by department, but for strategy everything is in Aha! and aligns all of our other project/task trackers including integrating with Salesforce so we're able to work within every departments' preferred solution and see progress without necessarily having to check with everyone involved in a project.

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

  • Very helpful separating the concerns of our product and engineering teams. Both feel notably more productive working in their "own" tools (aka aha and jira)
No photo available
  • Better Project and Resources Management
  • Better time management on projects
  • Good ROI the price of the integration and use of this tool helped in allocating our resources in a more effective way
