Pivotal Tracker is great because it allows you to get speed estimates, story estimates, and track bugs. It is a very opinionated tool, so it is not for every team. If you use it on the right team, it is great. It works well with our software development teams.

We keep all of our projects in Pivotal Tracker--we measure points every week. We have tried everything and it is by far the best project management tool. Unfortunately, if you are not an engineer, it takes a while to get used to.

I used Pivotal in a previous company, and I liked it, so we’re using it at CoverWallet too. Pivotal is good for smaller teams, and it’s better for development and projects related to engineering than other tools like Trello. Trello and Pivotal are similar tools, but Trello is better for more generic projects like business development and marketing.

Pivotal Tracker - Best Roadmap Tools for Startups

Pivotal Tracker is the developer’s project management tool. Stacklist users proclaim it one of the best project management tools for software development and bug tracking. However, all agree it’s not as useful for more general business needs. As such, many teams supplement Pivotal Tracker with a free and/or simple project management service (often Trello) for their day-to-day needs.

How startups use Pivotal Tracker?

It’s used mostly by Seed-stage startups with small teams and defined development needs, but aren’t yet large enough to opt for an all-around project management powerhouse like JIRA.

How much does Pivotal Tracker cost?

Pivotal Tracker has seven price points. It starts out free for three collaborators, 2GB of storage and 2 projects. It then moves up to 10 collaborators, 25GB and 10 projects for $35/month. After that, file storage and projects become unlimited, with variability in cost found in incremental increases in collaborators: 15 collaborators costs $75/month, and 50 collaborators goes for $300/month. If you require more than 50 collaborators, call Pivotal Tracker for a quote.
