SpiraPlan Overview

Tired of Separate Project Planning and Issue-Tracking Tools?

SpiraPlan is a complete Project Management System in one package, that manages your project's requirements, releases, iterations, tasks and bugs/issues in one place. Fully web-based and enterprise ready.

SpiraPlan is an open platform that can connect to your existing source code repositories and integate with the tools already used by your developers.

Get Information Right at Your Fingertips!

SpiraPlan® provides integrated dashboards of key project health and status information.

SpiraPlan® provides reporting dashboards of key project progress and risk indicators - task progress, effort slippage, project velocity, task burndown/burnup, top risk and issues – in one consolidated view that is tailor-made for agile methodologies as well as supporting your legacy/hybrid waterfall projects.

Throw off the Shackles of Outdated Methodologies

As described in the Agile Manifesto, traditional waterfall software methodologies have failed to delivery projects on-time and on-budget. In addition, many systems built this way will fail to provide the expected business value as there is no ability to refine the requirements as the project progresses.

SpiraPlan is a complete agile management system that synchronizes your project's requirements, iterations, tasks, risks, and issues in one place.

Software development has been transformed by the new Agile methodologies such as Scrum, XP, DSDM and AUP. However the traditional tools of project management are too cumbersome and not well suited. SpiraTeam's Agile Planning Board is perfect for team meetings with color-coding and simpledrag-and-drop editing.

SpiraPlan has been designed specifically to support agile methodologies such as Scrum, Kanban, XP, Scrum, DSDM and AUP, allowing teams to manage all their information in one environment.

When better software planning and project delivery is required, Inflectra provides the solution. SpiraPlan offers the features you need to streamline your project management methodology and attain the level of productivity and on-time, on-budget you need in today's competitive marketplace.

Great product for managing your software development projects at a reasonable price

A full ALM for our company to support a major multi year ERP implementation. Minimal setup and training was required and the tool has proved reliable for us.

Pros

When evaluating solutions for an Application Lifecycle Management tool it became clear to me that the choice would be SpiraTeam (including SpiraPlan). For the price to feature ratio, it could do everything and more than we would need. With the ability to just add additionally licenses as our team grew it provided the flexibility we needed.
The support team at Inflectra is also top notch. Any time I had a question/issue, they were there to help in a quick and friendly manner.

Cons

Some areas of the application UI can be a little clunky and unintuitive at times. Inflectra does take user feedback seriously though and I have been able to work with them to resolve most issues we faced.

Very satisfied with SpiraTeam's requirements management features and functions.

I can easily manage software requirements for any size software development project.

Pros

The value for the money. I primarily use SpiraTeam for requirements management. From that perspective alone, SpiraTeam's functionality is as good or better than IBM/Rational, HP, or ReqTool. To have all the other functionality (test management, task management, Kanban, reporting, etc.) include in the package is a true value-add.

Cons

It's a minor inconvenience: response time when first logging-in to the system is somewhat slow. But once the system responds to my login attempt, response time is acceptable - at least as good as other cloud-based systems I use.

Great product - especially good for remote project management

I have used SpiraPlan for several years to help manage projects. It is a very stable and reliable piece of software. I find it great for managing tasks for staff working remote from the office. It took a bit of getting used to at first as there are several ways of setting up projects. However once you get the hang of it and find the way it works for you it is great. I really like the import / export functions to Microsoft Excel and MS Project - very useful. Also the ability to set up you own custom fields gives it a lot of flexibility. I have used several other software products over the years so have used both good and not so good ones, and I would thoroughly recommend SpiraPlan.
