Pros
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.
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.
Easy to set up (meaning the project templates, users, customizable fields, etc.). Very good integration possibilities with other tools.
Cons
When lots of test cases are created the app gets sloppy and confused.
It's a minor inconvenience: response time when first logging-in to the system is somewhat slow.
The report generated is not as extensive is it should, some details are not readily included and no customization to the report seem can be done.

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

Reviewed 5 years ago

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.

Team project planning with SpiraPlan

Reviewed 2 years ago

Collaborating project with our technical department is smoother with SpiraPlan. Both department has fully understand this software capabilities which make us know where the limit and can properly planning for project without problem and miscommunication.

Pros

Every feature and tools that are much needed to planning a project either for small project and larger project is available to be use within this software. Selection for type of service and tools that can be integrated is quite huge and cover all the tools that we use. Planning board can be drag, drop and duplicate across the project list.

Cons

The report generated is not as extensive is it should, some details are not readily included and no customization to the report seem can be done. Manual testing is slow to load all the resource and i had to restart the whole process again to properly load all the related resource. Other than that, everything is working as it supposed.

Our R&D - managed, at last!

Reviewed 3 years ago

We used a maintenance release for one of our medical devices as a trial. Spira allowed very easy control of Requirements and Test artifacts and especially traceability and traceability reporting, which is vital for e.g. the FDA submissions.

Pros

* Easy to set up (meaning the project templates, users, customizable fields, etc.) * Very good integration possibilities with other tools * Attractive GUI * Great customization possibilities for reports * REST API available and well documented

Cons

* Support for reviews is a bit rudimentary - this is, IMO, the weakest part of the tool. We'd prefer to have the possibility to submit sets of artifacts for review, defined review groups, and allow adding Approvals and Discussion threads (similar to e.g. Gitlab)
