The user interface is very good. It is more intuitive in nature. It is easy to use and robust in operation. The dashboard is designed on modernized UI and the interface is also intuitive. I can easily navigate things on my own.

Cons
Nulab, Inc.
  • The biggest drawback that I want Backlog to fix as soon as possible is that is does not provide any place to explain the problem or bug virtually.
  • There is a need for a tab or space to attach screenshot or video to easily explain the bug or problem in the project.

  • The largest con for me is the clunky UI. It's not very intuitive, and has a larger learning curve to become a proficient user.
  • Reports are functional, but could use some improvements.
  • It can be slow at times, and you have to wait to make sure your changes are saved before moving on.

I would give 9 but one less because of the high price.

This software allows project and portfolio managers to analyze and prioritize projects based on resource allocation and available effort. It helps you compare the sorecast effort with resource availability. You can email, call or tweet them if you have concerns.

Backlog has all of the top-notch features to increase productivity, visibility, and project tracking. Backlog is easy to use. I first just logged in to the platform and it was [ready] to go. I easily started working on it and it started giving me the bugs’ details on our project. Always available for queries. Listen to the queries very attentively and try to give a solution on the go if applicable. Otherwise, take some time and respond with the advanced workable solution in the limited time frame.

We were looking at vendors but they didn't meet our expectations and weren't flexible enough.

  • Before Sciforma we were running projects out of Excel and emails. Using a cloud based application means that everyone is viewing information in real time.
  • Our executive leadership knows that they have one place to go for a real time status on all of our strategic projects.
