Pros: Having been on a long journey over the years with many different types of project/product management software solutions, none of them ever seemed to be "the one". Aha takes a different approach, and focuses on management of end-customer value that is aligned against the vision you have for your company and its products.

It's the first work management platform I've used that took this holistic approach, and actually its massively empowering. I'm now able to construct high level roadmaps for complex projects that span multi-discipline teams that can be reported to all stakeholders very clearly and easily.

Managing the features the team are going to focus on in a customer centric way is also great. Yes, you can use Aha for task management, but often in a product management capacity it's more important to express WHAT customer outcomes & benefits we want, and then let the team figure out HOW to deliver them.

Moreover, the customer support from the Aha team is excellent, with plenty of guides not just how to use the platform, but also how to strategically tackle typical challenges that product managers face.

I highly recommend Aha. It's a liberating product from a team that clearly have an awesome culture based around customer success.

Cons: Aha is a sophisticated tool that's very flexible and configurable so it takes a little while to get fluent with everything it can do, and understand the best workflow patterns with it. That said, once you find your groove it gets much easier. The support team help with that though.

Pricing is also in the premium end of the market, particularly for smaller companies, but then you do tend to get what you pay for.

Pros: As an IS project management team, we like Aha's ability to organize all project and portfolio information in one spot. The custom report section's timeline report is used frequently for all portfolio reviews, and it allows us to drill down to a product, release, feature with 3 clicks.

We also use the comments sections for meeting minutes and another task tracking. I would estimate we only use 50% of Aha's capabilities but are very happy with our purchase. I Also customer service is 5 star when I submit an email I get a response often within the hour.

Cons: There is a bit of a learning curve, but videos help. I think you need a senior resource that will take a couple weeks to sift through all the features and identify what's important for your implementation vs. nice to have. Since we are an IS PM team, we don't use strategy and ideas, we only use product, release, features & reports tabs. We have experimented with strategy and ideas features but have not had the time to fully explore.

There are a couple of items I have mentioned to customer service:

I would like the ability to store documents with the assurance I can recall if needed - currently, when I attach word docs I have to keep a backup in SharePoint based on advice from customer service.

I would like the calendar to exclude weekends as the default (or as an option) currently when I set up releases using my templates I have to go in and change start and end dates to workdays,

Overall: We can share project information and status immediately within our team, also useful for visual displays for internal and external meetings.

Aha! is a refreshing restart for Project Management software after a big search for a suitable tool!

Pros: Vast amount of functionality related to almost all aspects of project management. The scheduling tools to set up different timelines and dependencies on a project is the best I have seen in a single self-contained project management tool. Apart from basic time management and scheduling tools there are also a wide array of data analysis that can produce graphs, charts, and reports on project details recorded into Aha!, providing info previously unrecorded or not taken advantage of while using previous platforms. This allows you to see how much time you spend, your pain points, and areas of improvement for a single project or for the entire company as a whole.

Cons: As with any complicated software, the software has a steep learning curve and it is difficult to build new processes in a company for a program with this much coverage and that touches so many aspects of the company. Oftentimes when we began using the product for a certain purpose we found that it was often required to make adjustments in other areas of the company to effectively use the software. A good example would be our adjustment of protocols in the company with JIRA to effectively leverage functionality in Aha!. This often meant work required in those areas that was not initially foreseen. However, when was said and done - after on-boarding the product the benefit was a net increase in our ability to effectively manage projects.

Overall: Increased ability to manage projects effectively and an ability to handle more projects without a decrease in organization. Upscaling the company's activities as we grow, Aha! is able to positively affect a single project, and also adds benefit when managing multiple projects in an environment that may be stretched for resources at any given time. Aha! can grow with your company.

Pros: I used Aha! in my previous job as a Product Manager. When I started my own company, Aha! was the obvious choice for me to use to build our short and long term roadmaps. Aha! guides you through roadmap creation starting from your strategy, vision and business environment. The way Aha! is set up makes you think through all critical aspects of your business like the competitive landscape, and take them into account in your roadmap planning. Going through the roadmap process in Aha! ensures that we stay focused on the right things that bring us the most value.

Aha! Customer Success Team is legendary. In my 20+ years of career I've never experienced anything like it. True professionals who know what they're doing. The team responds to issues within minutes. They resolve the issues within minutes. They want you to be successful, and provide you advice and best practices to get you there. This is how customers should be treated, and Aha! is an inspiration to us in that!

Cons: I love it all! Only downside is that now I get really annoyed when contacting someother companies' customer service and my questions and requests disappear into a black hole. Aha! has shown a new standard that other companies would benefit in trying to reach!

Pros: Having worked in the SDLC on many projects, I've seen the good, bad and ugly. Often the struggle is working within the confines of closed-system solution such as Jira. The pros of Aha! are it's 100% cloud-based so access is simple (especially for me since my employer requires PCs and I work on a Mac).

Another big feature is the mapping function which makes project status and planning simple with visuals. I also think the polling functionality is pretty nice to poll your team on their support (or opposition) of specific features.

Face, the less time you spend in meetings, the better you can engineer and code product.

Cons: Hmmm...the cons are few. Perhaps the only one I can see is some fintech companies are scared by using third-party cloud-based products. Honestly, it's not even a con.

For example, one fintech I worked for relied too heavily on traditional DevOps people who were advising against cloud yet didn't truly understand the security benefits of most bona fide cloudies (i.e. AWS has been PCI compliant since 2004).

Overall: The benefits you get from Aha! are unlimited. By integrating it into your product team you'll likely want to do some hard training to get everyone onboard. Although they do offer exceptional training modules in their admin panel.

Pros: Lets you plan a roadmap the way you would in real life - in many tiers, from strategic to actual user stories that will be completed. These roadmaps are visually appealing at all levels! That means you can present and share your work and plans at any level of detail without having to pull out graphic design tools to abstract out the details or "make it pretty" for a presentation. I LOVE their notebooks. After I share a roadmap or presentation, I create a notebook so I can always track a "snapshot" of the plans I presented. This lets me go back and reference how things have changed and why they changed. I like the ability to create and track personas as well as competitive information in their wiki type pages.

Cons: I have not figured out the right level of integrations with JIRA. The integration is very robust, and a full integration is easily supported. But that means when someone changes the info in Jira, that change comes over. Not what we are looking for. This may be more a process problem, but something we struggle with.

Pros: We've used Aha for a few years now to manage new features of our large, waterfall-based software platform. I've used other tools that are simpler and others that are more complex/comprehensive. For me, Aha is a great middle ground that is very easy to use and modify without having being too complex to configure.

Cons: I wish the pricing was handled differently. Needing to commit to a full year of license costs before adding a new product owner to the system has made some process changes in our shop more difficult than they would have been if the pricing was more dynamic. Also, I would prefer a license that charges a smaller fee for all users rather than a large fee for each product owner. It would make it easier for me to sell system usage internally.

Overall: Ability to organize, rank and manage SDLC.

Pros: Very complete product for working on one or more product management projects. We've noticed a 'tightening up' of both our internal and external teams for communication, comprehension, and delivery as we shifted to Aha. It feels like we've barely scratched the surface of what's possible in the product especially with integrations and the various template, workflows, and automation.

We have two development teams on our first Aha project, and Aha has made it very easy to see the dependencies between teams and keep the conversations and 'to do' tasks in one place.

Customer support has been proactive, and I could get on online meeting upon request to clarify some very specific points that related to our workflow. Documentation is also very good and for a deep product there is a high degree of intuitiveness (if that's a word).

Cons: It's a big program for sure. I didn't realise how much data entry I had to do until I could everything in one place, and manage the feature/requirement/task relationships properly. That's a 'con' because I hate having clarity on how much work I need to do..

For a web application Aha is very rich/deep, so the UI takes a little time to comprehend

Overall: A massive increase in visibility and comprehension between sales/product design and the development teams. We now have better certainty about features and requirements, and there's a lot less 'lost email' that previously led to confusion and delays.

Comments: Introducing Aha! into our product delivery process has further reduced the gap between product & technical teams and resulted in a more predictable & stable team cadence. More importantly, our adoption of the product has helped us deliver projects on-time, whilst continuing to manage and prioritise requests from existing customers.

Prior to discovering Aha, we were planning an in-house tool which connected our product managers to development teams. After a short trial, we finally got that "Aha" moment when we hooked up Atlassian JIRA & Slack and realised that we wouldn't need to spend time away from our core business activities to develop a solution to manage ideas and product features.

We've been using the product for almost a year now and have required support twice for minor issues. In both instances, the company has been ultra-responsive, with answers coming from actual product managers at the company... even late on a Saturday night.

The product does have a slightly steep learning curve, but if you stick with it and take the time to set it up, it's well worth the upfront investment in time! Supporting everything from company vision, right down to individual feature specifications means products managers have everything they need to keep our product relevant and ahead of the curve.

The only tool I know that does the job.

Pros: Supports the Product Management process really, really well and helps communicate what's going on. Very flexible and can model most processes.

The external idea portal integration is neat, and so is the ability to integrate with external tools like Zendesk.

Support is very, very fast and helpful with product usage questions.

Cons: It's a bit Jira-like in that it is hyperflexible with everything. It's very difficult to grasp what's happening for anyone who isn't a PM, and even for PMs there's some things in there that aren't particularly intuitive (some of the filtering and reporting UI for example, or the fact that there's a tiny dropdown that defines whether you're looking at the company or product, and also impacts your settings screen etc).

I also reported a few UX bugs to the team and received the standard "it's a feature, not a bug" response which was a shame. This is I think the downside of having Product Managers as your Customer Success people.

Overall: Finally a tool that actually supports Product Managers properly.

Pros: Finally a tool properly designed for Product Managers! Use it every day to capture ideas and keep track of high level epics/ initiatives we use it weekly during our executives meeting and that helps to keep everyone informed and re-prioritize on the spot when needed. my personal favorite is the notebook feature that we can then share. We use it to project our roadmap on our big office TV as an information radiator to keep everybody informed of what's coming

Cons: I'm not a huge fan of everything being driven by date I would like more flexibility around that as we are using it Kanban style and having dates on those initiatives doesn't help. the integration with Jira also requires a bit of learning to keep what you need in sync

Pros: Incredibly easy to setup and use. After watching the training videos I was up and running with a test project within the hour. The interface is clean and consistent, and largely self explanatory for anyone - you don't need to be a product or project manager. The fact that it provides light functions to bring together different business areas and report on pretty much everything is a real bonus. I have used Jira in the past and a complaint often heard from non technical staff is 'it's too techie'. Aha is not - it's very simple, and as a bonus integrates with Jira if that's what your dev team use. Support is also lightning quick - quite literally all of my comms have been responded to withing the hour - sometimes within 15 minutes - and that's an answer from a person - not an automated 'we'll deal with it sometime never' response.

Cons: There is very little not to like. If I had a single criticism, *some* parts of config are not that obvious, but very little. I am actually struggling to think of another con. I guess the file manager/document management could be a little bit more feature rich if you are used to using confluence you may notice that.

Overall: Easier management, improved communications, better roadmap visibility.

Pros: The product works well for the most of the product development lifecycle. It is customizable enough to have multiple products and product lines tracked efficiently and in detail. It's Pivot reports functionality is very powerful to view the features grouped by various parameters and generate some excellent reports.

Cons: The integration with JIRA is sometimes a little unstable, especially when it comes to custom fields that we use heavily within our organization. It could also do a better job about allowing more ways to input and represent the detailed product strategy in the Strategy part of the tool

Overall: I am able to build my product roadmap and have it in a state where it can be shared easily with others, track the progress of features and plan ahead.

Pros: So easy to use. After playing around with the trial version, we started setting up our own instance. We've changed our approaches here and there, but the ease of reporting, audit tracking of all activity, and the visibility of organizing releases and requirements has been a major improvement over the spreadsheet roadmaps I had before.

Cons: More flexibility in the views of roadmaps would be great - I have to do a lot of ppt and the notebooks or images don't always align well with our corporate ppt.

Overall: I've been way more effective at communicating my product strategy with the capabilities in excel. A lot less manual cleanup to get my message out. And we've been able to expand into a more robust formal competitor and client tracking too!

Pros: How comprehensive it is - not only has it allowed us to much more easily manage our product roadmap, but it has taken hours off our week through the "Notebook" reports which we can issue to all stakeholders.

Cons: The sheer number of features can be a bit bewildering - this was less an issue for me as a regular user, but to occasional users it can sometimes be difficult to find things. I'd recommend getting the licence which allows free Viewer access so that you have control over what they see and how they get to it.

Overall: The sheer amount of time it saves once it is set up - it gives clarity not just to everyone in my team, but has some amazing features to share very specific (you can be very granular) details about products with all stakeholders.

Pros: Aha! This truly is top most project management tool used by most companies as it aids product managers to deliver specifications of a product with premium quality.

It is a roadmap to different solutions and features and helps in delivering the best possible, by satisfying the customers needs and wants.

The overall quality of this product is outstanding and the most preferred tool in the corporate networks.

The customer support is really brilliant when it comes to understanding the product or regarding any queries or other stuffs.

Cons: It is a premium tool and hence a little on the heavier side when it comes to purchasing the product especially by smaller companies. A great tool to look out for by mid and large sized companies, because it suffices every needs and provides features as per what you pay.

The overall design is a bit complex initially when it comes to understanding this product. However, in the long run it eases through and most of the features can be easily understood and used accordingly.

Pros: Aha! has very flexible workflows, custom fields, terminology, and good design of the interface. Its menu and all features are incredibly simple and intuitive, I picked it up with no particular training. I like how you can sort or filter your boards and tasks into different styles of the display until you find the one that works best for you. We have Aha implemented for different departments across the organization. It is great for breaking product plans into initiatives, features, and user stories. This helps the organization understand the product plan and what is driving individual work items.

Cons: I would like to see better sync data between Aha! and JIRA. There's not a native mobile experience yet. It doesn't need full functionality but many features of Aha! should be available on mobile.

Pros: Aha! is just incredibly powerful. From GANT and agile planning to long term feature and master feature roadmaps, Aha! has the firepower to roll up even the most complex roadmaps. Reporting is robust and in depth, and integrations link to your existing strategic initiatives seamlessly. Public facing roadmaps and ideas boards complete the experience to go from vision to product.

Cons: With complexity comes ease of use challenges. To use Aha! effectively, one has to know it well. It faces the same struggles as other software that is very powerful and feature rich. Once you figure out the navigation and feature linking, it becomes much easier to use. If you inherit an existing Aha! board, you may need a week to get accustomed.

Overall: Roadmap planning, feature tracking, agile planning, public ideas board.

Pros: I definitely like the most the system of pricing here and what contains in each suggested plan. If you look at the plans, you can notice that the developers take care of each size of company, starting from startup and ending with big enterprises, and they can help you as with the very beginning of work(create a plan, strategy, divide it for the certain time intervals and so on) the same as in case you are already have the successful product and you want to know how to continue to keep up this.

Cons: That very thing that makes the working process more complicated is the different levels of access to perform the specific actions on the platform. This system must make the working process easier and that is why such politics of access must be significantly rethought.

We love Aha and the way it helps our distributed team to stay focused on what's important.

Pros: It is designed with the product management in mind, the way it should be. Helping you to focus on the key things that you need to clarify, design and plan. At the same time it allows you to customize the flow/process you want to use in your team, and even the vocabulary/terms you get used to use - so you really feel that it's your team's tool at the end!

Our Engineering team also enjoys using Aha cause it gives them convenience while updating the progress on current business requirements and also allows to keep track of the technical features on the roadmap.

Cons: The recently launched Mockups feature still requires improvements here and there, but I know for sure that at the end Aha team will do it the best way possible for its users.

Pros: Aha! has streamlined our release management process, while at the same time allowing us to track our product vision for each release. We can now link that vision directly to product enhancements included in each release, ensuring that our product moves forward and is properly aligned with our product roadmap. Reporting capabilities allow us to communicate on a given release in a manner that is easy to produce and share.

Cons: One con is that data backups are only available at the Enterprise Plus license tier, it would be nice if this type of security was offered at other license tiers.

Pros: The customizable idea portals per product, the product and product line management, the idea ranking and feature ranking tools, the drag-and-drop displays and visualizations for PMs to manage their work.

Cons: The less-than-friendly release management pages and to-dos, the UI-heavy requirement and feature specification pages, instead of content-focused, and all the limitations to the VSO integration which create heavy lifting and manual re-entry in VSO itself. The notebooks are also not that friendly for collaboration, only for sharing, and are older looking with one item per page.

Overall: A formalized product planning process, integrating strategy and greatly improving visibility to release planning, strategy, and initiatives. A better process for working together as a PM team and work visibility.

Comments: Aha is a powerful tool, but may be too powerful for many use cases. With that said, it is a quite a beast when you know your way around it and it really shines with an experienced user.

Pros: Aha! is great in that it provides Gantt charts and Kanban boards for all of the products. The roadmap view (which you can share with others) is also great and it allows you to selectively include product features. We are working with Jira, so the auto-push to Jira is pretty handy too.

Cons: Admittedly, the app can be pretty hard and intimidating to get into and the learning curve is pretty steep. Big projects broken down into smaller features is not as seamless as it could be. The other thing that might be a major turn down for some is the lack of the mobile app.

Aha! is amazing, exceeds all expectations and offers great tool for project management.

Cons: All of the functions Aha! offers need to be more accessible on mobile devices. Some functions do not work on mobile that work on laptops or desktops.

Overall: Aha! has an amazing connected data model, the level of workflow is highly driven. There are plenty of visualization options and great dashboard transparency.

Aha has changed the game for us.

Pros: It's not that we didn't do what the software does, but what it does is organizes it and draws all the parallels together in one very nice interface. We are currently working with all the integrations to the different software we currently use. It is a great tool to organize and see your product lifecycle in one very clean interface. The ability to view everything in the lifecycle and see not only the WHAT but the WHY makes it very powerful.

Cons: I wish they had a mobile interface. So many times in meetings I get asked about one thing or another and pulling it up on my phone is doable, but not awesome...

Overall: I think the biggest benefit to using this is the transparency that the entire organization gets from using the software.

Pros: It is very streamlined and have a perfect functionalities like getting our product planning details. Ilike how Aha simplifies our strategic planning process for product management and product marketing. I have tried to track and share information on dozens of competitors and had a great visibility into our roadmap getting most of the details. The details are crystal clear for what more we have to do.

Cons: It can be more user friendly , as it requires a steep learning curve to be familiar with the product. The prices can be reduced a little more.

Overall: We inspect our project working plan and all our data regarding the same with Aha. We can manage the customer variance more better with it's help. We view our roadmap with it.

What an application ! Thanks AHA for your help!

Pros: We love Aha! and use it for managing our products. It helps our product team link high-level strategy directly to the team's work and create visual roadmaps that can be easily shared. The Customer Success team are comprised of former product managers who provide consultative support and best practice sharing often going above and beyond to help us get the best from the platform

Cons: Takes a bit of time to learn but its like any enterprise application. We took about a week to setup correctly which isnt that long really.

Comments: I have been using Aha for the past 3 years now in two different companies as VP product and thoroughly enjoy it.

It has all the key features a PM could desire: from the strategy setting to the creation of personas, visions, initiatives etc. to the actual feature planning and integration.

It is really easy to use and super impactful to communicate to wider audience.

The best is that it is constantly evolving with better features and they have a great support team

Pros: The software has a lot of functionalities for product and scrum teams. You can adjust a lot of things and options to make it fit for your needs. I think it is the perfect product if you only work in scrum teams and there is no bigger need for dependencies between products etc.

Cons: To many possibilities and a quit expensive product if you want to use it in the complete company. We also had a lot of problems to create dependencies of different products, which was a main killer for us to not working any longer with aha. We had an online presentation by aha which was definitely more like a sales roadshow and no questions were answered as hoped.

Especially if you are working in different teams and techniques it will be hard to use this product. As an example: We are a company with 3 scrum teams and 2 project management teams. We are working really close together as our projects influence the scrum teams (hardware rollouts etc. i.e) The scrum teams can use aha easily. The project management teams have no chance, as aha is completely focused on products and scrum. So even for a simply overview it was hard to put everything together and still if you managed it: the dependancies were missing.

Overall: Not much as I am working as a project manager. So for product teams and scrum teams this product brings a lot of benefits for creating road maps etc.

So many features that you wonder if it is the right product for you.

Pros: It is visually beautiful and has is fully loaded with tons of features. If you are a team that can spend some time learning the tool, I am sure it is going to help you. There are tons of training videos that are helpful. The documentation is brilliant too.

The Support team is very helpful.

Cons: The learning curve is steep. By the time you are done with the training the trial is almost over. It is unnecessarily complicated product. It is not always possible to build new processes to accommodate a software tool.

Trello is incredibly simple despite having an overly simplified Kanban board. Trello lets you organize work quickly while Ah ha forces you to learn a new tool. I'd rather work on my product than spend time learning a new tool.

Overall: None really. Spent a lot of time getting this software to work for us. It is too rigid and the learning curve is steep. We want a solution that will work and are not looking for a tool we have to learn.

A visually rich, easy to manipulate, quality tool for designing your roadmaps - not just a chart!

Pros: Aha! is nice in that it guides you through roadmap creation, and for each phase, has an "initial" start that points out features of that section with guidance on how to use them. It has many nice video tutorials that help you get started quickly. It has placeholders for all aspects of getting through the roadmap process. The scoring system is fantastic, giving some credibility as far as ranking, and it is nice that we can create our own metrics for that.

Aha! Customer Success Team has been great. Always willing to lend a hand or explain an issue that didn't work the way I expected. The team responds to, and usually resolves issues within minutes. They provide advice and best practices to help use their software, and even help best attack your problem. Lots of ways to customize the views and reports.

Cons: The rather cool chart designed to visualize the mappings between goals, campaigns, etc. didn't like the way I broke up some of the relationships - and didn't quite give me the view I desired for such a visual. :-( As with any product full of rich features - sometimes, it isn't always intuitive how things relate, but if you watch the videos, it will help you quickly get across the learning curve.

Aha! is a great tool & MUST HAVE for one to be successful managing their complete Product strategy.

Pros: As we are new to product development, we are so lucky to have found such a great tool. Aha! provides all the features to synergize business strategy with product development strategy. While many tools focus on selected areas of the product management life-cycle, Aha! is the only one bringing it all into focus to ensure from end-to-end consistency and traceability to what is important for success.

Cons: Can't say there is anything Aha! has not done. As with any tool looking to simplify a large set of processes, the learning curve can be daunting. However, their help and support makes it easy to navigate especially for newcomers.

Overall: 1. Central tool to manage all aspects of product life-cycle

2. Intuitive interfaces to ensure when information is added it is maintained in a consistent fashion.

3. Powerful self-service reporting to generate views for stakeholders

4. Flexible feature set which we can tailor to our business needs

Pros: We love Aha! Working in the automotive industry, we need precise requirement documentation and traceability for each release. Aha! not only meets our expectation to track the requirements but does a wonderful job in helping us link key strategy directly to the team's work and create visual roadmaps that can be shared. It also integrates with Jira, so product and development teams can stay on the same page. Aha! is a great platform and I highly recommend Aha! I also have to say... their support team is top notch!

Cons: There is nothing bad I can say about a easy to use Product Management tool that is constantly being improved. I do wish there is a better way to manage requirement approvals.

Pros: The 'cradle to grave' visibility on Ideas coming in from Customers and Features being delivered as a result.

Cons: The Reports are very useful, but managing of them is a bit confusing.

Overall: We began using Aha! to provide our customers with a portal to submit ideas, our Program Managers with a tool for managing assignments, and all while maintaining visibility for the Leadership team and Stakeholders. The product has delivered on those expectations and provided our team with a workflow that integrates very well with our onsite Team Foundation Server, that is highly integrated into our Software Development Lifecycle.

Pros: We are a Lean / Agile organization. It was difficult for me to find a tool that consolidated my numerous spreadsheets and powerpoint documents into something that was manageable and useful. Then I found Aha! I was extremely impressed with how Aha! allows you to link company strategies, personas and market knowledge to the products you are building and managing. I haven't seen anything like it. I am also able to share documents with our executive leadership team without having to reorganize or reformat - this took so much time before! I am truly impressed and excited for what they add on in the future.

Cons: Although the set up was relatively easy, it took some time for me to identify HOW I wanted to view my products and tasks. Once I got going though and after a few trainings, I figured out something that works for us.

Comments: We use Aha! for a number of products in our organization where we manage more than 30 products and product lines. Aha! is great by default, but it also offers a number of customizations to cover lots of scenarios. For us, Aha! works very well for PMs, engineers, support and UX people. Other roles such as product marketing, demand generation and sales are also peeking at Aha! with soon to become their every day tool too.

Comments: We use Aha! to manage our entire product portfolio. Before Aha! we tried to "manage" our feature backlogs in spreadsheets. But with multiple product owners, it was a nightmare to build and maintain a consolidated roadmap, much less track cross-product feature dependencies and customer commits. Not only does Aha! give us an always up-to-date consolidated roadmap view, it's a great collaborative environment that really helps coordinate the efforts of multiple product owners to link high-level strategy directly to product plans. You can tell this product was built by real product owners. If you want to improve your product planning, I highly recommend Aha!

Pros: What I enjoy most about Aha! is the ability to quickly and easily enter in product ideas, check on those statuses, add my support for other ideas, and see what we are doing in the future. This product makes it easy to see all of this without needing a product manager to help walk you thru everything.

Cons: The search feels like it could get an update but that is just being nitpicky. I'd like more options to fuzzy match on similar words.

Overall: Product roadmap tool that makes planning effortless.

Pros: I tried Aha! for a few weeks and after the first one I realized it was the perfect fit for our needs. It helps us to capture, maintain and increase visibility of our products roadmap, from strategy to operational, day-to-day activities. Aha! team is constantly implementing new features, keeping us very confident that we made the right choice.

Our product managers are very happy with the tool, giving them all they need to control their products.

Today the whole company has visibility of what and why we are implementing this or that feature in our products.

No more trouble with priorities, release schedule, communication around new features, etc.

Overall: Better control of Products Roadmap, increased visibility of product strategy, facilitated prioritization committee meetings.

As a product manager, I love how aha! integrates the whole process from customer ideas to features to release planning. Additionally being able to capture strategy and competitors makes it a tool for literally everyone in our small start-up.

Cons: We ran the trial and so far I could not identify anything negative. Having an on-premise version would be nice but we are fine running it in the cloud.

Pros: So easy to use. I work as a consultant helping technology companies design, launch and sell new products and cloud services. Aha is so easy to use and takes the drudge work out of creating a vision, business plan, market assessment etc. so I can focus my time on engagement with my customer and really understanding what they want to achieve. Really can't rate this product high enough and the support is excellent as well. I don't write many glowing reviews but this product deserves it.

Cons: The only thing it really lacks it the ability to create a single report across all areas for the product. You have to go into each section and export as an image or PDF. So when presenting a document or presentation to a board, it can be a bit time-consuming.

Overall: Time saving.

Pros: The service is intuitive and simple. Custom workflows are great for making Aha! work within our established processes while allowing room for growth and change. With the help of aha, the work began to pass faster and easier.

Now it is possible to create a strategy and connect it to execution. Also, the support team is excellent.

Cons: This service does not need absolute functionality. A huge number of functions can be a little confusing and distracting, you need to get used to it. I would like to create a single report on all areas of the product, at the moment it is impossible.

Pros: The entire product management cycle is very well though out, from collecting ideas, ranking these ideas based on votes for example, to promoting them to features, which you can then easily link to a certain release.

Release/feature timeline reports can be shared with external parties and are easy to understand for different types of stakeholders.

Besides, the team at Aha! delivers top notch customer support!

Cons: It takes a bit of time to wrap your head around all the possibilities, so it has quite a steep learning curve compared to other products, but it's definitely worth in the end! Customization options such as adding custom fields could be managed is an easier way.

No mobile app.

Overall: Clear product management strategy.
