How Do You Manage Feature Requests Today?

If your company is like most, feature requests come to your team in many forms today - emails, phone calls, website, meetings, etc. Does your team manage them using Excel, Word, email folders, or wikis? Gathering and managing feature requests & requirements using these tools can severely handicap your team, due to reasons discussed later in this page. On the other hand...

Accompa, a leading enterprise-quality requirements management software used by more than 100 companies of all sizes (Fortune-500 to startups), offers you a much more efficient and effective way to gather and manage your feature requests and requirements. Product management, product marketing, engineering, IT, project management and related teams use Accompa to better understand and meet their customers' needs. Here's why...

You can create custom web forms in under 10 minutes - then use them to gather feature requests from your customers as well as internal teams like Sales & Support. But that's just one feature - Accompa has many other useful features, built to benefit your team and your customers. Before we get to the list of features, please consider this point...

Why Excel™, Word™ & Wikis Are Often Wrong Tools
For Managing Your Features & Requirements

When it comes to tracking & managing your feature requests and requirements, tools such as Excel, Word & wikis have some benefits. They are readily available and your team already knows how to use them. But they are often the wrong tools for the task at hand. Why? Using such "general purpose" tools to track & manage your feature requests and requirements can lead to:
  • Incomplete Requirements
    • As these are all general-purpose tools, it is very hard to gather requirements in a structured fashion. This often leads to incomplete requirements - one of the biggest reasons for project failures in a large study by The Standish Group.
  • Incorrect Requirements
    • Requirements documents created using Excel and Word usually are stored on the author's computer, and are not accessible by others in real-time.
    • This makes it harder to share, discuss, validate, and track changes - frequently leading to incorrect requirements which often cause project delays & failures.
  • Lost Requirements
    • Most importantly - it is very easy for requirements to drop through the cracks when using Excel/Word/wikis to manage them. Even critical requirements can be lost when the author forgets, is reassigned, or leaves your organization.
Incomplete, incorrect and lost requirements lead to PROJECT DELAYS, PROJECT FAILURES, and UNHAPPY CUSTOMERS WHO DEFECT - without you even knowing it is caused by the wrong tools. This is bad enough, but these tools are often even worse...

Wrestling with tools like Excel, Word & wikis to manage features and requirements TAKES VALUABLE TIME AWAY from your team's higher-value activities, CAUSES UNNECESSARY STRESS and FRUSTRATES YOU...

This is why Engineering & Sales teams at most companies do NOT use Excel, Word & wikis to track their Issues and Opportunities. They use tools built for that particular task -- i.e. Bug trackers and CRM software, respectively. You too can prevent these losses and save valuable time by choosing the right tool to manage your feature requests and requirements. Here's how...

How You Can Get The Right Tool
And Prevent These Losses

"Requirements management can be simplified if initial requirements definitions are captured in a database-based tool to enable collaborative review... traceability and versioning/change control"
