Improved Predictability

Visually plan your releases and iterations using simple drag-and-drop to assign items from the backlog and allocate them as needed to balance workloads and meet delivery dates. As releases and iterations get underway, monitor progress in real-time using custom board views and burndown charts. Issue management helps you track and communicate project-wide impediments that need addressing before they impact the performance and delivery of the team.

Visibility for all Stakeholders

Visibility for all Stakeholders

Extend visibility beyond your development team to include other stakeholders, providing a real-time, shared view of project plans and progress to keep everyone in sync. Stakeholders can access high level status updates with the ability to drill down into the details as needed. Team members can see, manage and react to what€™s going on with the project in real-time using interactive story, task and test boards.

Team Collaboration

Facilitate collaboration among team members with a built-in, interactive communication platform called €œConversations€. Especially helpful for remote team members, Conversations lets participants send messages, follow each other, contribute to project-related discussions and connect over general topics of interest.

Integrated Project Communication
Project Reporting

Project Reporting

More than 15 agile reports and metrics are available to help teams make informed decisions and keep projects on track. From cross-project reporting to release, iteration and team-level metrics, create the reports you need at the push of a button. Get accurate insight into your burndown and velocity trends, and generate quick list reports for stories, defects, tasks and tests.

Reinforcing Agile Processes

VersionOne€™s navigation workflow aligns intuitively with agile planning practices, guiding users through each step of the agile process without being prescriptive. An intuitively simple UI makes the tool easy for new users to learn and navigate, helping teams adopt agile concepts faster and continually reinforcing best practices.
