Jira is regarded as the top software development tool for agile development. This project management software can help you plan and track projects in a way that is similar to Trello. But it also has release features that allow you to keep accurate and updated information on your projects. The report function turns real time data into a graphic. You can use the workflow templates that Jira has, or you can customize your own.

With Jira, you gain:

  • Easy task distribution
  • Real-time and highly visual data on each team’s performance
  • Timely information that helps you gain insights, which you can use for business decisions
