Software Development Plans, Processes & Metrics Dashboards All in One Place – All Integrated with Jira and other Tools.

Most approaches to software development revolve around project tools with limited opportunity to engage executives, teams and partners in a truly collaborative model that maps to strategy and tracks real-time results across development efforts. Software development managers piecemeal together tools like Jira, Trello, SharePoint, and others to create the ideal “development environment.”

upBOARD provides a strategic view of your engineering goals, a line of sight to your software development strategy, and a “collaborative dashboard” to engage teams and track real-time results. Using upBOARD, your software development process becomes a living “board” that’s always on, always current, and always available for everyone to see. upBOARD allows you to assign and engage teams to specific projects, metrics, and process steps. Keep everyone aligned around your development pipeline to accelerate alignment, decision-making and business growth.
