FeaturePlan is the missing link in connecting customer feedback with disparate requirements management tools and process
Montreal, Quebec and Kennesaw, GA (PRWEB) June 12, 2006
Ryma Technology Solutions Inc., the leading provider of real-world product management solutions for the software industry, and Orasi Software, Inc., developers of the award-winning IdeaScope™ and experts in on-demand and embedded customer feedback management software, today announced a strategic partnership that will develop an integration between FeaturePlan™ and IdeaScope. By leveraging IdeaScope’s powerful on-demand application to elicit, capture and analyze extensive customer feedback and validation, FeaturePlan further expands the scale of market inputs essential to every market-driven requirements process. The partnership further helps companies to increase the value of their core corporate knowledge base – the key asset for driving strategic decisions – and to define products that will achieve commercial success.
FeaturePlan is used worldwide by leading organizations such as Reuters, Autodesk and Trend Micro to automate the requirements gathering process, turn the flood of market inputs into actionable information and leverage a repeatable product management process across the enterprise. IdeaScope opens a rich frontier of additional market input capabilities through communication with the customer. Product management now can involve customers in the feedback process as well as verify assumptions through customer online surveys to support business-critical product decisions through strong market knowledge. Through the integration with IdeaScope, FeaturePlan expands the power of real-world market data and analysis, driving a comprehensive requirements management process through development and quality assurance that results in better software products aligned with the markets needs.
“IdeaScope has shown that it is possible to capture and manage large amounts of customer feedback,” said Rene Bellei, president and CEO at Ryma Technology Solutions. “This partnership shows how important it is for our customers to know their customers intimately in order to develop successful products. FeaturePlan is committed to partner with acknowledged industry leaders to support effective and efficient product management and requirements management processes.”
“FeaturePlan is the missing link in connecting customer feedback with disparate requirements management tools and process,” said Nick Kavadellas, president and CEO of Orasi Software. “The power of IdeaScope now can be harnessed with FeaturePlan to define market requirements and integrate customer feedback through every stage of the product process.”
