Ensuring effective project management and clarity in your work and processes is one of the most important steps towards success for many companies, and it can be difficult to organise. Overlapping projects, teams working in multiple areas, long or unusual production processes or a lack of transparency can all bring your work to a standstill, which is why you need a tool that works for you, not the other way around. That’s where Jira and iJira come in.

What is Jira?

Jira is a tool that teams can use to help facilitate agile work. It helps teams perform, visualize and manage their work using things like boards, reports and dashboards. Your team can use Jira to help make better decisions throughout the life of a project.

You want the tool to conform to the processes that your team desires, not be constricted by the capabilities of the tool, which is why Jira is so popular among project managers, product owners, development teams and other groups that need to be able to arrange their work flexibly, collaboratively and effectively, without confusion, wasted resource and unnecessary complexity.

Jira is very configurable, allowing the team’s current desired processes or workflows to be modelled and used in a way that makes sense for your business and allows the team to accomplish their work more transparently and effectively.

How Does iJira Help Your Team?

iJira is a service that provides a bespoke configuration for your Jira.

Because agile processes are always open to improvement, if you want your tool to be adaptable as your team learns. (Agile working is a way, to do their best work).
