Paycor is known for delivering modern and intuitive recruiting, HR, and payroll solutions. But what makes us legendary is our singular focus on helping business leaders, entrepreneurs, and HR professionals make a real difference in their organizations.
We had a problem
Our software platform provides a complete offering of HR solutions. We have a large team of product managers, product owners, and designers continuously working to improve the customer experience.
Previously, important product information — such as roadmaps, customer ideas, and the feature backlogs — were captured in Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint. This made it difficult to connect individual product plans with the overall business strategy.
We also lacked a consistent prioritization process. There was no uniform way to determine if a new feature was a strategic fit and if it mattered to customers. We wanted a better way to connect our product information and guide our decisions.
Aha! as a solution
Aha! gives us a centralized place to define our strategy and build roadmaps. This allows us to articulate the high-level vision and goals for our platform. Product managers can then build roadmaps that align with the overall direction.
The ability to capture ideas and roadmaps in the same system keeps us focused on what customers actually want. This makes it easier to prioritize what to build. It also lets us show how we are delivering customer value.
Aha! is so simple to set up and use. We quickly implemented it across our entire product team. We also configured the two-way integration between Aha! and Microsoft TFS. This keeps us in sync with engineering and allows us to track development progress in real time.
Life is good
Managing all of our product information in Aha! provides a new level of transparency. Now, we have a single strategy that everyone can execute against. This allows our product teams to plan ahead more effectively and make trade-off decisions with confidence.
Aha! also makes it easy to communicate our plans with others. We can now quickly build the right roadmap or report and share it across the entire organization. This saves time that would have previously been spent hunting for the latest version of the sanctioned roadmap.
