    Nifty

    I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
    • Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks
    • Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management
    • Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked
    • Having clear milestones and timelines for projects
    • Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general
    • Assigning different components of projects to different people
    • Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task

    Pivotal Tracker

    The UI of the Pivotal tracker is really beautiful and amazing, which looks trivial, but we have it open all the time, so it's nice for us. In Pivotal tracker for me its very Easy to create tasks or stories anytime without facing any problems. Pivotal tracker provides us a ton of features to track the tasks and manage a team and the projects. Pivotal tracker allows for a entire team to be on the same page of the tool in regards to where is the project right now, right status of every task, what is being worked on and by whom.

    Pros

    Nifty

    • An overview of project timelines and milestones.
    • One-on-one or group conversations.
    • Tracking the status of projects and tasks.
    Candace Mitchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pivotal Tracker

    • It's great for tracking milestones and reporting team velocity per sprint.
    • Maintaining a prioritized backlog that is sharable with different members of your team is relatively simple.
    • There's a free version of the product for up to 3 collaborators working on 2 projects and the starting price for larger packages is relatively low.

    Cons

    Nifty

    • Time Expense could be improved since we cannot edit the previous/past time logs entered.
    • Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality
    • Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized
    Darshil S | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pivotal Tracker

    • In-story task management is still a weak point. The ability to @mention users in tasks and mark tasks as 'in-progress' would go a long way.
    • Epics do not span projects. This becomes troublesome when scaling Pivotal Tracker's agile methodology to multiple teams.
    • Splitting stories is often confusing for team members as there is no concept of a 'parent' story with child stories that have split off of it. There are only two levels: Epic & Story.

    I love the simplicity, non-configurability, and price/performance of this tool. Hands down my favorite project management tool for agile.

    It works good enough. I didn't have many problems with that. The user interface is a bit confusing though. The team took some time to understand where some configurations were.

    We've never had to request support in the 5 years I have been using it. A solid solution! Everything I have had questions about is on the website. New features are in their newsletter with more details on their website. Often I am using the new features within a few minutes of reading the article.

    Alternatives Considered

    Nifty

    There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of Slack's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried)Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from Trello and Asana, saving tons of time in migration.

    Pivotal Tracker

    We have had employees in the past look at Drupal, and other open source project management tools to assist in our needs. Unfortunately each solution took too much time to implement, design and configure that we could not stop the work we were doing for clients to complete a full set up of a project tracker. Thankfully Pivotal is a predefined solution with no configuration needed. Simply input your projects, design your Stories with Tasks and begin your tracking.

    Return on Investment

    Nifty

    • Consistent communications.
    • Staying on project schedule.
    • Aligned projects with business strategies.
    Candace Mitchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pivotal Tracker

    • Time is money with development and a lot of things can fall through the cracks. Having a good system for making sure you're building the most relevant product for customers is really important so it was well worth it for us.
    • The process we used worked for us and it helped us streamline our development which reduced a lot of things falling through the cracks and headaches. I'm sure there are other products that can do the same job just as effectively but Pivotal Tracker worked well for us.
