EducationSuperHighway Aha! Moment
Aha! is essential in coordinating our multiple projects, milestones, and deliverables and it’s simple to use.Audra Eng, COO
We work to upgrade the Internet access in every public school in America so all students can take advantage of the promise of digital learning. Our mission is critical to the future of America’s K-12 education system and the ability of our students to compete and thrive in the global economy.
We had a problem
We knew what we wanted when we went looking, but none of the product management tools we tried fulfilled all our needs. Each one was missing some key element. We wanted to align all the teams across multiple projects on overall goals, milestones, and deliverables. We also wanted to have task tracking, time management, resource planning and roadmap building all in one tool, not in separate tools that then required integration. Also, our team is made up of different business and education folks and not everyone has real technical background. We needed a tool that would get us up and going without the need for a lot of training and technical knowledge. Unfortunately, all the other product management software tools we tried fell short.
Aha! as a solution
Aha! gave us everything that we were looking for in one fantastic tool. We love the Aha! visual roadmap and gantt chart capability. These features have helped us align all of our teams across our strategic goals, milestones, and deliverables. In Aha! we can track all of our tasks and due dates. This allows us to quickly and easily run through the status of our projects and identify risks against the overall timelines and roadmaps. Also, everyone on the team found Aha! easy and straightforward to learn and use. We started reaping the benefits of Aha! immediately.
Life is good
Aha! has become essential to our whole team and our product development process. Using Aha! we have communication and alignment across the team, and we all know what needs to get done! With this new coordination between teams and awareness of dependencies, we are saving time and avoiding mistakes. Aha! is quick and easy to understand how to use. It is both an intuitive tool and one that speaks to everyone which has allowed for quick adoption and implementation. This means we got value fast. We also enjoy and appreciate the attention to design detail which has really been a key factor in getting the team to adopt the tool enthusiastically.
