ProductPlan Overview

What is ProductPlan?

ProductPlan is easy-to-use roadmap software that empowers product managers to plan, visualize, and communicate their product strategy. Build and share product roadmaps in minutes with our intuitive drag and drop interface. Easily create different versions of your roadmap for different audiences to build consensus across your organization.

In order to build visual roadmaps effectively, ProductPlan equips users with a drag and drop interface, customizable timeframes and custom tagging technology. To enhance user productivity, ProductPlan allows users to organize roadmaps using custom legends, tags and containers. While ProductPlan’s custom legends enable users to color-code their roadmap strategies easily, ProductPlan’s containers permit users to group bars together efficiently by theme. Moreover, users can highlight key dates conveniently by setting colorful milestones on their roadmap.

To promote smarter planning and prioritization, ProductPlan provides users with a planning board, parking lot and multiple version capabilities. With ProductPlan’s planning tools, users can score initiatives, capture future opportunities and produce unlimited versions of their roadmaps straightforwardly. Further to roadmap planning, ProductPlan facilitates roadmap communication and collaboration using features such as flexible sharing and presenter view which allow users to invite viewers and editors to collaborate and present and update roadmaps during live team meetings.

Utilizing notifications, completion status updates and JIRA integration, ProductPlan enables users to track changes and review progress quickly and simply. Furthermore, by supporting bank level encryption and storage, ProductPlan ensures all roadmap data is stored safely and securely.

The tool of choice for any product development team!

It's all about visibility into our development roadmap, knowing what is currently being worked as well as what is coming up in the pipeline.

Product plan for product owners/ project managers

We have used product plan to track projects with milestone and timelines involving multiple teams. Its very easy to extend or adjust each task bar which makes it very easy to use and also to update stakeholders on the project progress.

Product Plan

My overall experience has been very good. As a result of my use, my current employer has become familiar with both the value and use of a high level roadmap. Communication with teams is improved because the teams I support have information that is up-to-date, active and can be quickly changed during a project review session.

It's all about visibility into our development roadmap, knowing what is currently being worked as well as what is coming up in the pipeline.

Pros

ProductPlans gives my team more visibility into our Roadmap - for current and upcoming initiatives. I can link each initiative to Jira which allows us to view the associated story and determine priority without having to search for the details. I can easily customize the view based on the audience as well as how much or how little they need to see. Giving my executives the high level overview of what our team is currently working on is imperative as they don't need to get in the weeds with details, whereas my development team does.

Cons

One feature this software is lacking is the ability to move bars (story features) between lanes (projects) without having to drag and drop. I'd like to right click and get an option to select the lane and it auto move to the new lane positioning itself in the same time frame it currently sits.

Very simple product, easy to manoeuvre and has made me look like a wizard in planning meetings!

Pros

When people evaluate software, they often want the one that help them manage everything in every conceivable way. This means complexity, training, and an inability to replace a resource without losing the plan and updates to it.

I like ProductPlan due to its simplicity to start using and ability to share dynamic views quickly with others. No training is necessary to quickly build a detailed road map. It also allows you to learn as you build, so you can quickly add new features or details without having to start building again. Often tools that help you manage everything as so feature robust, it is impossible to use all features without extensive use and training and then it’s impossible to show to others that are not already versed with the software. I also like the template road maps as they allow you to consider other details that you may overlook if you were to start from an empty page.

Cons

I did not like that I could not upload a spreadsheet to build an initial road map. I also would like to be able to assign budgeting amounts and be able to report on spends easily but that would add far too much complexity to this simple tool. It has also been impossible to persuade management to expand the use of this tool due to budgetary constraints and competitive purchasing rules. love the ease of sharing road maps and plans, however our security team does not approve of using open links without security, so it becomes tedious at times when a non-licensing members wants to share with more team members or others.

We have used product plan to track projects with milestone and timelines involving multiple teams. Its very easy to extend or adjust each task bar which makes it very easy to use and also to update stakeholders on the project progress.

Pros

The swimlanes are well built out which makes it easy to move tasks especially if you have multiple teams that you manage.

Cons

The scroll becomes slightly difficult to adjust to initially but you will get used to it soon. Overall the software is good to use.

My overall experience has been very good. As a result of my use, my current employer has become familiar with both the value and use of a high level roadmap. Communication with teams is improved because the teams I support have information that is up-to-date, active and can be quickly changed during a project review session.

Pros

The software Pro's are the following:

* Ease of use (good intuitive design) and less steep learning curve compared to MS Project and if you get stuck there is excellent, responsive customer service,
* Creating a product/project roadmap can take a matter of minutes once a standard template has been created.
* The roadmap is a great communication tool for teams and can be integrated into an existing project management environment like a SharePoint site which allows users from geographical locations and various parts of a larger organization to review the plan at their leisure.

Cons

Like any roadmap software the cons include it is not a critical path tool like MS Project, some work must be done to show the text on the various charts so it is readable, limited output is available for example for presentations etc. I consider a working tool to get the job done and it excels.

I've tried to solve this tool problem in so many ways over my 20 years of experience developing and socializing plans, and Product Plan is my go to tool

Pros

Super fast to change. Updates take less than a minute.
Easy to use. It's hard to fail in this tool.
Good looking. I LIKE using this tool and the roadmaps we create look nice enough to put into presentations.
Zoom In/Out. Operates well at different altitudes.

Cons

Sharing roadmaps with others is possible, but users are always confused and think they need to pay for a license.
I often feel milestones jack up my roadmaps. I wish there was a way to toggle visibility or better control their appearance.
