Overall Satisfaction with Roadmunk

Roadmunk was specifically used within the Product Management department to solve a particular problem we were having in synching individual roadmaps with a collective department roadmap that could be shared with the entire organization. Roadmunk proved adaptable enough that it allowed for individual PMs to manage their product roadmap while making it easy enough for the department head to share a complete look of the department's work with the C-level suite.
  • Collaboration – Roadmunk makes it very easy to work and edit within a team structure.
  • User Experience – The usability of the product made it quite easy for the entirety of the team to hit the ground running (i.e. very little training was required).
  • Rollups – Each product line and therefore each product owner could easily focus on their particular roadmap without having to sort through the master roadmap making it highly efficient, while at the same time making it quite easy to pull all updates into one high-level document.
  • Simplicity – This is both a blessing and a curse for Roadmunk. On one hand, it is easy enough for anyone to use, on the other, it misses quite a bit of the nuance associated with individual tasks due to its cookie-cutter inputs.
  • Design – This layout gets the job done, but there is nothing flashy about what it does.
  • Increased visibility into the department's work
  • Reduced time spent on weekly product updates
  • Drove more collaboration within the department
  • Aha!
To be quite transparent, Roadmunk was the cheaper option. However, it also provided a ready-to-use solution for the team that required little to no training to get up and running. It provided the needed results almost from Day 1. Aha! had the more robust feature set and the flashy work products that turn heads, but it the end it was not the right fit at the right time.
We never really had to go back to Roadmunk for support, but they do provide a wealth of informative updates that can be consumed at the individual user's own pace.

If there are not going to be a lot of eyeballs (particularly eyeballs belonging to senior leadership) looking at the work product, Roadmunk is an excellent tool that allows small teams to easily maintain individual roadmaps that are capable of being rolled up into larger, more comprehensive departmental works. Additionally, Roadmunk does not require a lot of ramp-up time before it starts to give you a return on your investment, literally there is no PM that would have trouble using the product.

If it falls short anywhere, it is that there is no style to go along with the considerable substance. In viewing the work in shared settings or in a cross-functional meeting, the work product can tend to look a bit dated.
