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.

SpiraPlan is fully integrated into your developers' IDEs, allowing them to view and manage their assigned requirements, tasks and incidents in the same environment that they write code. SpiraPlan has add-ins currently available for Microsoft Visual Studio and Eclipse (using the Mylyn task-based interface).
SpiraPlan includes the ability to integrate with a variety of automated build servers so that the builds can be linked to the current release or iteration and displayed in your project dashboard. In addition, the source code changes are linked to the build, providing traceability from the build to the fixed bugs and implemented features.
SpiraPlan allows you to have a single, unified view of your various source code repositories in an easy-to-use web user interface. In addition you can link commits/check-ins in the SCM tool to artifacts in SpiraPlan to provide code-level traceability of changes. The repositories supported include: Subversion, Git, Mercurial and Microsoft TFS.
Many of our customers choose SpiraPlan or SpiraTeam because they are using agile methodologies such as Scrum or Kanban and need a powerful tool to manage their project backlogs, releases, sprints, iterations and programs. They are often using different tools for planning, bug tracking and requirements which hampers the ability to see the status of their project in one place.(Read the Full Article)

As you evaluate SpiraPlan for your project management needs, please use:
At the initial stages of a project, the project manager will use SpiraPlan in conjunction with the business users to determine the initial high level scope of the project, the key features and requirements. Working with the technical team, the project manager can begin to develop a high level release schedule and assign initial priorities and work estimates to the different features.
Once the project is underway, the combined business and technical team work together to develop the iteration plan for the releases, break up the features into discrete stories and tasks and begin assigning the items to the individual iterations. During development as the team work to complete the various tasks and stories, the system will track changes in the actual effort to determine if the plan needs to be rebalanced to ensure on-time, on-budget delivery.
