About ReqView

ReqView is a highly intuitive software that provides users with a range of useful tools to create well-structured documentation files and configuration documents required for software or system development projects. With ReqView businesses can easily capture structured requirements for a software or system product, and track traceability to design tests and risks. Users can easily customize ReqView to any development process, from simple agile process to complex waterfall.

With the ReqView platform, users can easily import work from MS Word or Excel documents, use and customize available document templates or create a new document from scratch. Users can also edit documents in text format and attach images or PDFs and link them via custom links. The software allows users to filter, edit and define different requirements such as priority, target release date, and acceptance criteria.

ReqView facilitates the tracing of links and allows users to generate traceability reports. With ReqView’s smart Traceability Matrix, the user can easily browse the document’s structure and keep track of changes for every attribute within their projects.

On-line documentation covers a very broad panel of use and configuration topics. The documentation is very easy to read and understand and also very straightforward. The support via email or their support portal is very efficient and effective in solving our issues or helping with advanced topics.

Pros

We use Reqview to record specifications of our medical robotic devices, both for hardware requirements and software requirements, in the scope of the EN 62304, ISO 14971 and ISO 13485 standard of the medical device industry. We use Reqview to analyze risks and trace the mitigations up to specifications and test cases. We record and trace test cases specifications in Reqview using multiple document projects. Everything is stored as json files which allows us to store the source files in a GIT server. Reqview has very easy to use export features allowing us to export Reqview documents into EXCEL or DOCX files matching with our company formatting templates so they can be archived within the documentation folder of our medical devices for regulatory purposes. ReqView is a perfect tool to support and enforce our quality process.

Cons

When features are missing, we can ask the Reqview team and they show their roadmap and progress done with features we are interested in. We can vote for upcoming features as well.

Response from Eccam

Thank you for great feedback with more information about your regulatory compliance usecase!

'Right-sized' between capability versus ease of use and maintenance.

An easy-to-implement and -maintain requirements management system. It doesn't try and be the answer to everything we have ever needed in our development process, which usually leads to overly complicated software which drives your system, rather than the other way around. ReqView fills just the slot we need it to.

Pros

We are a small development group that does not have the bandwidth to justify dedicated resources to learn and customize a complex tool. We have periods of heavy activity followed by months of not touching the tool, so ease of use was at the top of our list of priorities. Additionally, being in the medical device field, we already have many systems in place and do not want to disrupt what is already running smoothly. ReqView is very specific about what it is trying to accomplish, and does it well. It is easy to learn (we have only needed the online documentation) and the pricing makes it a no-brainer to start playing with. The product is definitely a work in progress, with new features being added on a regular basis. A couple of them have been as a result of requests I made personally, so you can't get better responsiveness than that! Rather than trying to do everything, ReqView provides straightforward import and export to standard MS Office software. For version control, we treat it like source code in a Subversion database, but it can be used on a shared drive. Updates are easy and automatic. It's not SAAS, which our IT department would have nixed for security reasons, plus there's not the delay involved with remote servers.

Cons

Customization of outputs to fit the needs of the project documentation is usually a bear, and ReqView is no exception. We had the same issue (except worse!) with previous RM software. Someone who is well-versed in HTML and CSS might find this easy, and there is copious documentation available at w3schools.com, but I admit to spending much more time to generate a half dozen or so output scripts than the rest of the first project in its entirety! Now they are done, so it's no longer an issue for the future, but it was a steep curve. Obviously, if you only need formats closer to those provided, your experience will be easier.

Perfectly-sized requirements management tool with all the most relevant features; responsive...

Reviewed on 2017/11/03

Pros

It has apparently been created by people who understand requirements management.

It checks almost all boxes that are important to me. It pretty much takes the good parts of DOORS, and leaves out the bad ones.

The ReqView team are very responsive, and attentive to the desires of their users. I have great expectations for future releases.

Cons

There are currently three different implementations (native app, web app, Chrome extension), all of which are missing a bit of functionality that's important to me, even though other implementations have it.

The support the team at ReqView give is incredible, always quick to respond to any questions, offering unprompted advise. Great bunch of people.

Pros

The tool is easy to learn, very user friendly interface, easy to customize, useful help file. Allows the user to focus on the task of managing rqmts and not waste time learning the tool.
The SVN integration is just great, makes commits, updates, merge a breeze.

Cons

At the moment, you cannot view more than one document in a project at a time (you can open several projects at the same time) when linking and reviewing linked rqmts takes a little more effort. However, the people at ReqView have told this is planned to be fixed so two or more documents from the same project can be viewed at the same time.

Response from Eccam

Peter, thank you great review! You'll be able to view and edit projects in more application windows very soon because we plan to release the first beta of this feature in few days. Linking documents displayed in different project windows will boost your productivity to the next level.

Enhancing Requirements-Engineering with ReqView

Previously we were doing Requirements-Engineering with MS Office (and lots of scripts).
ReqView enabled us to quickly switch to a Database driven tool. ReqView is easy to use and is effectivly tailored for lean documentation.
The JSON-Files of ReqView are easy to process with python-scripts, so we can generate Latex documents. And generate our traceability analysis.
In addition to Requirements, we also included RiskAnalysis into ReqView, which also was Excel-based before.

Pros

Easy to use, having most of the features needed for managing requirements in our projects.
Unlike many other tools, ReqView is not overloaded with lots of stuff you won't ever need.

Cons

Realtime Collaboration ist not yet implemented. Working two or more people on same documents sometimes is difficult. But it looks like ReqView V3 will include that feature soon.

Response from Eccam

Hi Oguz,
Thanks for the awesome review. Moving the team collaboration experience to the next level is our main focus at the moment.
Regards,
Libor
