ProdPad was one of five tools chosen by Gartner that can “add value to R&D activities”. The vendors selected this year were also commended for “facilitating the digitalization of R&D”. We’re especially honored to have been chosen, as ProdPad co-founders Janna and Simon are themselves product managers who are committed to simplifying the role of product managers through innovative and integrated technology.

Recognition in the Gartner report represents not only a bucketload of hard work from our great team but also shows just how important our customer feedback has been in helping us develop a tool to be proud of!

So please join us in celebrating this important milestone for ProdPad by having a look at some of the report’s key findings:

ProdPad is cool because it is specifically tailored for R&D and product managers to gather and refine ideas, then align them into product specifications, and then arrange it all on a product roadmap, without paying for the capabilities that aren’t necessary for more agile organizations.

The software helps PMs make decisions about what to drive within R&D and what to deprioritize. The solution helps PMs gather feedback, quantify the results, and manage the product backlog.

It also allows activities to be tracked, and ideas be mapped to the product roadmap. ProdPad directly integrates with other development tools such as Jira, Pivotal Tracker, Trello, Team Foundation Server (TFS) and others, and outputs to PDF, PNG or live embeds.

CIOs, IT leaders, R&D IT directors, product and project managers (PPM, portfolio planning) who want a more direct innovation pipeline to product managers should evaluate this platform.
