ReqSuite® among the best RM tools of the year 2019

A few days ago, by chance, we became aware that the renowned website The Digital Project Manager had included our ReqSuite® in the list of the 10 best RM tools of the year. As a young company it makes us proud to play in a league with the flagship companies DOORS, Jama and Caliber for the first time and to perform only marginally weaker in direct comparison.

The review is shown below.

ReqSuite RM (from OSSENO Software) strikes a great balance between customizability and simplicity, providing enough features to be useful while remaining lightweight, easy to learn, and affordable.

This requirements gathering tool includes a well-rounded toolkit of definable templates (along with the ability to create reusable requirements), workflow definition and visual modelling tools, and collaboration features. The biggest selling point of ReqSuite is in its ease of use—the navigation makes sense, it’s not overloaded with complexity, and the tutorials for using the product are genuinely useful. It doesn’t offer the capability of enterprise-grade system management that a solution like IBM Doors does, but it’s a great fit for most other use cases, and especially as a software requirements specification software.

In terms of integrations, ReqSuite synchronizes bidirectionally with several other third party tools, including Jira, TFS, EnterpriseArchitect, and Excel—and their WebAPI lets you sync with additional systems.

Summary of ReqSuite:

  1. Requirements management: Pass
  2. Requirements visualization: Pass
  3. Traceability and real-time impact analysis: Pass
  4. Collaboration and review: Pass
  5. Integration with other tools: Pass

Score: 9.6
