Chose BugHerd
I didn't specifically choose Bugherd for this project, but when we do select a company bug tracker, this is the one I will choose. I've used JIRA and Pivotal Tracker previously, both of which had a bigger learning curve than Bugherd, so it wasn't simple for our customer support …
Chose BugHerd
BugHerd is more focused on web-based tools, which we needed, as opposed to app-based tools like Instabug. Jira has a much higher level of complexity and barrier to entry and didn't suit our use case.
Chose BugHerd
It's better than everything else we've found. So far if we were going to find something better for us -- we'd probably need to make it ourselves.

BugHerd is excellent for tracking feedback on websites or other web-based material (such as our online courses, delivered via LMS): the ability to easily and quickly move from the kanban board to the site of the issue, the rich features (auto-screenshots with mark-up; comment threads; assignments and @-mentions; status tracking); and the company's responsiveness to requests makes them great to work with.

The Jira software works well for managing scrum boards and allocating resources to a task. When your Epics and Issues are set up properly, it can give you a good idea of where your team stands and the trajectory of your project. It is not the ideal solution if you need to provide documentation and support to people outside of your product teams or organization. It would benefit from having a public documentation or repository feature.

Pros
Splitrock Studio
  • The screen capture tool is terrific and allows web-based issues to get added and uploaded without any saving, copying, or resizing.
  • The widget that opens via a Chrome extension is intuitive and it's easy to toggle the feature on and off. If it's on, you can see all the other reported bugs on that page to help your team avoid multiple reports of the same issue.
  • The way the tool creates a new ticket for each bug and then allows you to adjust the status on it is helpful.
  • I enjoy the conversations and tagging features within each bug ticket.

  • Management of the software is very difficult at times, although has improved.
  • Ability to manage resources is really non-existent, there are some plugins but they are ALL buggy (I've tested them all).
  • Better integration with Trello, would love to see this happen. Right now it's very clumsy.

This is because Jira Software generates a huge profit for an affordable price. Having a tool that makes team management transparent and effective is very valuable.
In addition, the renewal of Jira Software and all Atlassian tools is predictable and clear, as the prices are published on the Atlassian website and there is no pyramid of intermediaries.

Usability
Splitrock Studio
BugHerd is an easy-to-use, highly intuitive tool that fits seamlessly into our web development process. It is easy for all users to use, web developers, project managers, testers and clients. Clients are able to easily pin bugs and provide explanatory feedback that allows our team to fix what is broken and incorporate client feedback.

JIRA Software is a pretty complex tool. We have a project manager for JIRA who onboarded us, created our board, and taught us the basics. I think it would have been pretty overwhelming to learn without her. JIRA offers so much functionality that I'm not aware of -- I constantly need to Google or ask others about existing features. Also, although they are all under the Atlassian umbrella, I find it difficult to switch between JIRA Software and Confluence.

Support Rating
Splitrock Studio
Truthfully, we have had very little need for BugHerd support, as the tool is intuitive and does not have many bugs of its own. They have a pretty solid help/FAQ section and their support people have been reasonably responsive the few times we have needed to contact customer support. We have had our issues resolved and questions answered.

Our JIRA support is handled internally by members of our Product Support team. It is not supported by a 3rd party. Our internal support will always sent out notifications for downtime which is usually done on the weekend unless it is required to fix a bug/issue that is affecting the entire company. Downtime is typically 3-4 hours and then once the maintenance is complete, another broadcast email is sent out informing the user community that the system is now available for use.

One of their strong points i stheir documentation. Almost all of the basic set up needed within JIRA is available online through atlassian and its easy to find and very precise. The more critical issues need to be addressed as well and hence the rating of 8 instead of a 9.

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.

Jira Software has more integrations and has more features than many of its competitors. While some of its competitors do have better UI/UX than Jira Software, they have improved this greatly over time. Atlassian also acquired Trello years ago, so that adds better user interfaces to the system. They do also offer a pretty in-depth library of how to customize the platform that others don't.
