"Usage of the tool is very intuitive"
We switched from HP Quality Center to SpiraTeam. Installation and buying process
are easy and the support team is very helpful. Answers are coming fast and they
are helpful. The usage of the tool is very intuitive and works with the different
actual browsers on different platforms without any client installations (Windows,
Mac OS X, iPad, Safari, IE, Firefox, Chrome). A little bit more flexibility in the
customization of the requirements module are appreciated.

"Quick to implement and easy to work with"
"As a QA Manager I've worked with many defect tracking systems and ALM tools including
TFS and HP QC\ALM. SpiraTeam is quick to implement and easy to work with. The key
is mapping out your hierarchy and workflows for the project or all your projects
if you're creating a template. This makes creating future projects a snap. The ease
and flexibility of creating a custom Issue workflow was also key to a quick implementation.
SpiraTeam has good basic functionality covering the different SDLC artifacts Issues,
Requirements, Test Management, Releases, etc... There may be some features higher
tiered ALM tools may have, but if they're not must haves for your team then SpiraTeam
is the way to go. I've worked with the Inflectra Support team on easy and very complex
issues. They've been very responsive on their communication and followups. They're
always a joy to work with."

"Easy to use ALM tool at an affordable price"
We’ve been using SpiraTeam for test management for almost a year and already implemented
2 projects with it. User experience is great, since SpiraTeam is a lightweight tool
and we hadn’t had any experience with such a tool before adopting SpiraTeam. The
most value it adds to our test management process and to the company in general
is that all test cases and test results are stored in a single repository, both
manual and automated, and it is very easy to organize and find test cases or retrieve
test results using filters.
We find particularly useful the options for test case
re-use (linked test cases), separating test cases from test data (parameters), using
test sets as containers for test cases, and using custom fields. We are eager to
also adopt the other modules, especially incident management and requirements management,
to benefit from the traceability between all the different artifacts we manage.
And yes, it is very important that all of this comes at an affordable price with
really exclusive customer support - we purchased the Enterprise Edition and have
no problems whatsoever with the number of concurrent users. We expect future releases
of SpiraTeam to include customizable workflows for the other artifacts, not only
for incidents, as well as enhanced search.
"Great RM/TM tool for the price"
Our company researched over 2 dozen tools while looking for a Req Mgmt/Test Mgmt
solution. We are very pleased with our decision to use SpiraTeam. Several projects
have adopted its use in the first few months of deployment, and all the internal
reviews are positive. A common remark I hear is "The more I use SpiraTeam, the more
I like it". As a result of our satisfaction with this tool we have also purchased
Rapise for automated testing. Again we have been very pleased with the number of
features and ease of use, not to mention its integration with SpiraTeam.

"Total value for money"
Total value for money, a customer service second to none, this is a vendor with
the customer in focus. The application is very intuitive and meets all our current
needs with plenty of room for growing.
I've looked at several applications in this segment and this comes out tops so far
no doubt about it. If you've never had an ALM before or even a test management tool
then you just can't lose. I'm expecting an ROI in man hours the first year of ownership
not to mention the lift it will give to our working process along with job satisfaction
for all our users.

"Blown away with the level
of functionality available with the tool"
I just wanted to say how impressed I am with both SpiraTeam and the level of support
I have received for such an inexpensive tool solution. So much so we have decided
to make a purchase.
I have managed testing for almost 15 years and have worked for one of the "Big Three"
test tool providers in both sales and professional services capacities. I have both
sold the tools and as a customer bought the tools and I thus understand the cost
of ownership. Very expensive and usually in the range of 6 figures.
Currently the program I test is very bleeding edge. We are working with the latest
releases of the latest SDK's building high-tech geospatial mapping software and
experimental aircraft. We have a team of very experienced developers working in
an Agile enviornment
After evaluating SpiraTeam recently, I have been simply blown away with the level
of functionality available with the tool. It rivals the big-three and is a fraction
of the cost. In some areas I think the functionality is even better than some of
the big three. And quite intuitive for a tester in almost all areas.
Inflectra, where have you been all my life? I have wasted hundreds of thousands
of customer dollars on large tools when your tool is available for a fraction of
the cost. Nursing a well-developed bias against perceived "cheap tools", I have
avoided even evaluating such tools in the past - other tools in this price range
are generally completely unsuitable or developed for developers. I have previously
Not only this, but the price is such I am considering purchasing a copy myself in
order to increase my value and offering to future clients. It is very affordable!
The level of support I have received - when I have been simply an evaluating customer
- has been outstanding!
Henceforth I will be recommending Spira to all my clients for test and requirements
management. Well done on such a brilliant tool.
- Nick van der Net - Roames Project, Queensland, Australia.
We have had great success implementing SpiraTeam and RemoteLaunch at our company.
The customer support provided by Inflectra has been great. I would not hesistate
to recommend them to anyone looking for an ALM tool.
My team and I have been using SpiraTeam for over a year now. We continue to be impressed by how customizable the product is. The ability to create custom workflows for Requirements and Incidents really allows us to make this product conform to our companies methodology. We aren't forced to follow a rigid methodology (Pure waterfall or Scrum). We can configure the application to follow our specific needs.
- Brian Kratsch - Tolko
I have had an excellent experience with Inflectra and the SpiraTeam product. I use
it to track my own development efforts and have recommended it to several of my
clients. All have been very satisfied with product features, customer service and
technical support. Highly recommend Inflectra!
- M Brian Dunson - MBD Consulting LLC
I really love this tool it does exactly what I need as a QA manager and gives me
a lot of flexability. The best part is the service. From the phone support to the
responsiveness of the development team I could not be happier with this purchase.
This is the first application I have ever used that I could say that about. If you
are looking for a tool to track Requirements, Releases, Test Cases, and Defects
this is what you are looking for.
For me I look for a tool that allows me to get my job done faster and still provide
me the data I need. This tool does that and with the enhancements that are planed
it will actually be very valuable for other portions of our company. The other thing
I look for is a responsive customer & tech support team. Inflectra has hands down
the best support teams I have ever worked with. Makes all the difference when you
can tell them what you need to product to do and the actually address your needs.
- Daniel Hauser of RegEd
The product does an outstanding job on collecting the information needed to manage
projects both large and small. The application has a good road map for future enhancements
and helps me manage my projects without the normal amount of effort.
I would recommend this product to anyone who needs to manage a project with test
cases and requirements.
- Bill Owens - Affiliated Resource
Great features, such as integration into JIRA and Bugzilla, for issue tracking.
Clean layout. Great price for the product and great customer support. I really recommend
SpiraTeam. I have tested it thoroughly and found it to be just what our company
was looking for.
- Zeb Anderson - Mortenson Construction
Recommend to everybody who wants very nice quality of your software:
- Low cost
- Great support
- Product with the most important features
- Easy to use
- Roberley Antonio - Autotrac
Excellent Value for Money, replacement for QC. We have used this tool for organisation
of 50 users and it has worked perfectly. It has got all the features which a Test
and Defect management tools should have. Reliable and well priced tool.
