The simplicity of the UX, also how the company mission and vision are always present
I'm too new with the product, so I haven't find anything in particular I dislike
Streamlining communications and optimizing our roadmap
Aha gives us one place to store our decisions related to a product as well as track UAT and Support needs throughout the product lifecycle - But more importantly, the filtering, reporting, and search functionality make it easier for our team to find the context and resources we need. By having the additional work we do in development sync up via Jira with aha, we are able to provide better reporting on scope changes. I've only just started applying goals and initiatives to product lines and products, but I am already seeing that it will be a valuable tool for our clients in prioritizing what is valuable to their organization.
We are still in the initial stages of training our team, and so far the challenge has been assisting those users in seeing the right views, etc. It would be wonderful if we could assign default views to the team/individuals that they could then change if they wanted for their initial workspace. Some of our staff is less technically inclined than others, and navigation and filtering have been the biggest hiccups in training.
Like with any product like aha or jira, you'll find more of your setup is about defining your business process and less about the software itself. Start small and work up to using more features in aha to avoid being locked at a standstill due to process changes.
We use aha for a long term client, our internal custom software division clients, and our own product. Whenever I have presented aha to the stakeholders who would benefit the greatest, it has been our product owners and product managers, who have been the most excited. We've been looking for a way to bridge the gap between our technical and business teams, and aha has given us a place to do so while still catering to the many layers of stakeholders we have. The notebooks have been valuable for our custom service side when presenting scope to clients, as well as for C-Level reporting in the other business units. The idea portal has allowed us to create discovery groups that can input their ideas and suggestions, while still allowing us to decide final scope. It's been a wonderful way to increase collaboration and reduce miscommunication between stakeholder groups. It's increased the activity and engagement of stakeholders that were typically silent with our past discovery and product management strategies.
The support from Aha! is simply outstanding. Fast response, good quality response and always a genuine willingness to help. The product takes a bit to get used to and there's a learning curve but there's a lot of support material in the form of videos and online documentation to help. It can feel intimidating at first but you do eventually get to an aha moment. Although sometimes seemingly overwhelming, my key to success is to not try to do it all and instead focus on a few features at a time and get to some level of comfort and mastery before introducing other features to the mix. Also depending on your PM maturity and any other tools in use you may for example start with Ideas and Features, then go back to Strategy. It's flexible enough to allow you to pick and choose.
The suite of APIs I wish were more comprehensive and better documented. They scratch the surface and there are a lot of functions I wish I could fully automate but can't because the APIs aren't deep enough. For example, there's an API to create an integration but not to configure the integration which feels missing and broken.
Try it but give it time, it'll take while to feel completely comfortable. Check out the support videos and documentation, they're well worth it
Better connection with our customers, more visibility and transparency into our prioritization process and roadmap. Accountability with Product Management has also increased because we now have a single tool to track and manage the end to end process from strategy to delivery which eliminated a lot of excel spreadsheets, powerpoint presentations and auxiliary tools.
My company adopted Aha! for product management tool. I found the product extremely easy to use and in the case of needing technical support I was be able to reach the support desk and receive timely responses. The support team is extremely knowledgeable with the product and can resolve the issues very quick.
The license fee of the product is quite expensive.
Share product roadmap within the organization
This is an amazing one stop shop for Product management. Aha! has so many capabilities. It's an EXTREMELY effective method in marrying our engineering team's work and the view they want to see with our business team. The integration with VSTS online makes our lives SO much easier.
The only thing I dislike is parts of the interface. They need to make the UI a bit more intuitive.
Make sure you try out their startup program if you meet the necessary requirements. You will save a bundle for the first year.
We are outlining our release schedule for our two different product offerings and are distilling that high-level business view to features and user stories. Aha! Makes it easy for us. We are also putting in high-level information around competitors and ideas for future releases.
Customer service/Support - super efficient
Simply everything what product needs in one central place from vision, goals, personas, initiatives, ideas, features is really useful to have.
Starter roadmap feature is fantastic idea!
Ability to build additional custom fields
There are few bits and pieces when it comes to functionality but you can adapt quickly.
Biggest thing but depends on company needs is that you might be missing some of project management functionalities like capacity planning, forecasting but that depends on what problem you want to solve.
One central place for multi product management, features dependencies.
It solved problems for key questions what and when by easily build and presenting road maps
Brought bigger transparency and efficiency at work.
Ideation portal made a big difference to better communication, collaboration prioritization
Aha! provides a very comprehensive platform for CEO, PM, to know how to set up company vision, mission, position, feature prioritizing, product releases step by step.
User interface and UX can be improved. The gantt function to manage releases can be easier to drag and arrange.
Feature prioritizing, roadmap planning
Many tools offer visual roadmapping, but Aha helps a product management team rationalize the work behind the roadmap like none other that I've used. The strategic formulation, competitive analysis, and intake management tools help the team make sense of all the ideas coming in and plan for the greatest impact.
The UI feels functional but a little dated. The pricing feels reasonable if you take advantage of all the features included, but Aha is likely overkill if you're just looking to visualize a roadmap and not develop one. The hierarchical approach to company>product line>product is helpful but it's easy to forget where you are until you get use to it.
Take the time to research all the features included and think about how your team would apply them before making a purchase decision.
Aha! has helped us manage idea intake more efficiently while not restricting people from submitting them. Our roadmaps are easily shared with interdependencies between projects mapped with communication channels established.
Aha allows product managers to stay on top of initiatives in an organized, sensible fashion. It aligns an entire organization through conscious goal setting while managing time appropriately. The Jira integration is very beneficial to us, as our tech team primarily works there.
I have not yet figured out how to assign users to release phases.
We are improving internal communication and being mindful about why we are improving product features, and to whom iterations are most benefiting. It is also a wonderful project management software.
Aha! is an intuitive, straightforward tool that makes it easy for experienced (and neophyte) product managers and teams to build out visual roadmaps that resonate with stakeholders
This isn't an Aha! issue, but my organization has the tendency to over-complicate our usage of the tool. There are some rails you need to operate within to make Aha! work to its potential. We tend to over-use the flexibility and customization of the tool which somewhat diminishes its true potential
We are using it to plainly communicate what is going on with our products and teams. The "single source of truth" has been elusive for us. We are hoping Aha! can solve that for us.
