Hello Fellow Cofounders, I wanted to ask what are your go to tools for startup product management? Did you find any online tools to help out in the startup process? If so could you share them?
I think using something simple that works at the beginning is great, even Trello might be enough.
Once you get to growth stage and get so much feedback you need to hire staff to manage it, its hard to keep your finger on the pulse all the time if you're not using something thats built for the purpose.
To the tools mentioned, I would add Product Board
I have used aha.io in the past and am currently using a new tool I've found called craft.io. It's worth taking a look at them both and comparing the two to see which one suits your needs better.
craft.io - They're a startup, and their app has a really good looking, easy to use, intuitive interface. They focus on product management.
I hope that helps!
I used trello tool for product management. This is best tool and easy to use.
Great! Thanks Everyone. I also came across this online tool. unicornstarters.com
I started out with MockPlus. It's nearly as easy as paper or whiteboarding with some level of design and UI simulation. You can quickly sketch out concepts without getting bogged down in too much detail or with learning a complex application.
I just started using Target Process ( https://www.targetprocess.com/ ). Seems pretty good so far and the free version is sufficient at this time since my project and organization are still small. I don't know about anyone else, but I have a hard time handing over my credit card in order to merely try out a tool.
Our dev team is using Jira, and it has been working great for them. We are using Wrike for our general business project management. No tool is perfect, but we really liked the reporting feature of Wrike. The daily all tasks report I get keeps me on top of what everyone is doing in real time, without having to click through a bunch of screens.
One tool that I used and will always recommend, is Transparent Business. We started using that tool right from it's beta phase, until what it is right now. The best part about it, is the screenshots it attaches to your work.
Later along the line, I started using Todoist, and I realized this too could be used in business for project management.
