Overall Satisfaction with Redmine

Redmine is a project management and task tracking tool used by the external vendor that my company has made a partnership with it. I mainly used Redmine to review the project progress and the issues from the client raised to the third party software vendor and liaised between our partner and the customer for the issue escalation, first level technical support, follow-up for the second and third level support from the partner vendor and finally informed back to the end-user customer.
  • Redmine is features rich for the task tracking requirements.
  • Easy manageable for the project progress and over project management.
  • Can be used like Support portal for the issue raising and ticket system.
  • Improve user-interface for better user experience.
  • Enable notifying the originator if the ticket or issue has been followed up for completion.
  • Mobile Application support in the future.
  • Redmine is an easy-to-use for lightweight project management and task tracking solution.
  • Enable a collaboration tool for the internal and external organization and information visibility for the project progress monitoring.
  • Each user access rights can be managed upon per project easily.
Jira is a great project management tool for software product life cycle management for an agile environment based on agile methodologies. Jira is an intuitive and modernized user interface design compared with Redmine but Redmine is a lightweight and affordable project management and task tracking solution with its essential features and functionalities.

Redmine is suited for the lightweight non-agile project management solution where the overall progress of the project can be tracked and analyzed. Easy to use with the flexible hosting options available at an owned hosting or hosted as software-as-a-service. The user interface is quite simple and a bit outdated for better user experience enablement. The features of the agile project approach such as Scrum should be considered as an enhancement.
