Project Managers and IT Managers are under increased pressure to deliver results sooner while also cutting costs. They must respond quickly to their ever-changing environment and the continuous customer demands being put on them. The Agile project management methodology and our advanced application development life cycle management tool can help drive dramatic improvements in all of these areas.
Easily adapted to your current environment, AgileWrap implements quickly and begins providing value almost immediately with real-time reporting and notification tools (such as email alerts) that keep the team current on all activities and progress across the project.
Effective planning and better execution
The Agile methodology allows for firm scope and faster, incremental, iterative delivery. The customer has the opportunity to look at a feature early in the software product development, and provide valuable feedback so it can be incorporated in the next iteration.
AgileWrap gives users the highest probability of having a successful project by offering complete process transparency, continuous requirements prioritization and refinement to ensure the project is on track every step of the way. Furthermore, any changes in project scope can be easily and gracefully accommodated while minimizing impact to the overall project success.
Empower your team, and maximize output and quality
Times are very tough and you are likely asking your current staff to do more with less. AgileWrap can help you by empowering your product development team with advanced project management toolset that can help them work smarter, not harder and to make decisions faster and with more confidence. In turn, your staff will be able to work on multiple projects and iterations simultaneously without sacrificing productivity or quality. Our centralized reporting capabilities can streamline your development process into a single aggregated view. Features such as a single prioritized list of features and defects across the development team (even geographically dispersed), give your organization the ability to:
- Know where your team is spending its time (either adding new features, doing maintenance or fixing defects) at all times to help with prioritization decision making.
- Ensure maximum team utilization by assigning the highest priority tasks.
- Monitor and rebalance team efforts with automated notifications of any imbalance
With AgileWrap, your team will operate on the same page, according to the same up-to-date data. No longer will you have disjointed teams making siloed decisions by not knowing what other teams are doing or how their work fits into the greater development program.
Easy collaboration in distributed teams
AgileWrap provides an open, collaborative development environment across teams, even across disparate boundaries. It grants the ability to add and share next steps/feedback/comments on features, tasks and defects. Users can establish automated alerts to display blocked work items, and status changes of the individual work items, file uploads and/or of project team. Email alerts can also be generated automatically to alert users of specific important events. In the end, AgileWrap creates a software product development environment in which even a globally-dispersed team can operate like a closely linked one.
Visualize your data with Taskboard (virtual card wall)
AgileWrap's virtual Taskboard makes it easy to keep track of features, tasks and defects for the iterations, so you can see progress at a glance at any time. The Taskboard comes with information-rich task and defect cards which can be dragged and dropped for easy updates. Project managers can drill down with filters to get a look at the tasks by owner, and new tasks and defects can be added with a simple mouse click. In addition to being used as a tool for tracking your own progress, it's also a powerful tool for use during the daily Sprint meeting to show progress and updates at a glance.
