OK for simple projects

We've been diehard fans for the 3 years we've been using it, and it does a lot of things really well. We've gotten to the point where the shortcomings have really started to cramp our style, though, and it's time to move on..

Scared at first - delighted now!

I started using JIRA about 5 months ago and while I was a little scared to use the tool at first, now I couldn't live without it. As a slight technophobe, I was reluctant to fully embrace JIRA but once I did there was no going back.

The Most Critical Review

Nate Nordstrom, Founder @ BrandHoot & RochesterNow app; Ambassador at Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce6th of June, 2014 17:53

Not impressed. Wasted money.

Mavenlink has over-promised and under-delivered in a key way for my team. This has resulted in $1400+ being wasted on a tool that we will not use.

Great for Agile dev teams

We moved from Pivotal Tracker to JIRA about a year ago. To be fair, Pivotal Tracker fully met our expectations as a "one size fits all" tool for our product team, and made our collaboration and project tracking overall enjoyable.
