End-to-end product management for agile teams

4.7/5 (6 reviews)

craft Overview

Craft is a start-to-end, agile product management platform that enables organizations to discover ideas, generate story maps, collaborate on projects, and create product prototypes. The solution helps entrepreneurs and highly experienced product managers and owners to better plan stories, sprints and roadmaps, as well as collaborate with all teams in a single, centralized location.

Craft enables users to discover, collect and explore ideas and feedback from teams and customers, centralizing all questions for each third party or client with a complete backlog. Product managers and owners can brainstorm using the platform’s user story mapping features, and create epics or stories. Users can also add designs with a click, for intuitive product specifications that can be shared across teams.

Craft’s product roadmaps and sprints help streamline features, epics and stories to reflect the most up to date plan, useful for keeping stakeholders in the know. Product managers can manage workflows and resources for multiple teams at a time, coordinating UX, research, data science, marketing and R&D teams to implement different aspects of the same task.

The platform helps users keep all stories synced with design, development, and other business workflows by connecting directly with workflow tools and visual sources in real time. Craft can automatically sync with Jira and Google Drive, helping users cut down on data entry time or potential errors.

Supports the entire product management life cycle with a rich and easy to use interface

I need a tool to track documents and workflow associated with product management. This tool does that very well.

Pros

- Allows me to capture all the documents I need from 1) feature prioritization, 2) discovery, 3) design, 4) User testing all in one place. (Also supports implementation but we still use Pivotal Tracker for that.)
- Very natural feeling interface, particularly once you learn how the story attributes (theme, epic, story type, version, sprint, team, and worker) work in the interface.
- Allows stories to be assigned to different teams (and sprints for each team) for different stages of development (prioritization, discovery, design, user testing, etc.) is awesome
- The kanban boards are well designed and implemented

Cons

- It's still an early stage product so some of the features are incomplete and I occasionally run into bugs. That said, they are really responsive with bug fixes and feature requests.
- Some features I would like, for instance, having kanban boards contain stories and tasks from multiple products, aren't yet available. (It's on the roadmap)
- The roadmap diagram feature is weak. (It's slated for improvement.)

Built shared understanding with a geographically fragmented team. Getting on the same page with a virtual team is not easy, this tool is greatly assisting in making that happen.

Pros

The visual user story view is a game changer. Most tools place emphasis on plan and build, but Craft excels and wrangling in the mountain of spreadsheets and docs in the discovery phase. This tool ensures shared understanding with the entire team, arguably the most critical aspect to a successful product launch. Oh, and yes, it does push and integrate with Jira with two-way sync. So there is little reason to not give this tool a go. Last thing I'll say, the tool is beautifully designed and so intuitive and easy to use. For that alone I'm a fan.

Cons

Although they're constantly working on the product, I'm eager to have a mobile companion app as part of the offering.

Pros

Craft is the most comprehensive solution available. It is the only one I have found that offers a full range of product development tracking from early ideation through production and testing. It is also a beautifully designed peice of software that is clean, modern, and a joy to use.

Cons

Craft is young and so I still run into some glitches that makes it not work the way it is intended; however it is clearly being actively improved so fixes are always on the way.
