Zoho has announced the launch of Zoho Sprints — its agile project management solution. The platform encourages teams to work iteratively and incrementally, over short periods of time, to quickly release potentially shippable products.
It follows the scrum framework and combines backlogs, agile reports, collaboration tools and customizable scrum boards for software developers and other teams.
Commenting on the launch of this new platform, Sridhar Vembu, CEO, Zoho said:
Developing new software is nothing like making trains run on time. It’s more like laying train tracks through unknown terrain, which requires one to improvise and make decisions on the fly. Agile project management formalises that spirit of improvisation, and Zoho Sprints brings that spirit to life for all agile teams.
The platform lets users put a plan together with the backlog, know where each task stands with The Scrum Board, access analytics that enable change with real-time velocity charts, burn-down reports, and cumulative flow diagrams and work with collaboration tools for both co-located and distributed teams.
It also enables users to track work hours using Zoho Sprints. It is available with user-based pricing and also offers free plan that supports up to five users and five projects.
Pricing starts at $20 for 20 users per month and support an unlimited number of projects and features such as Timesheets and Sprint Replanning. Zoho Sprints is also included in Zoho One, the company’s all-in-one suite of applications to run an entire business.
With Zoho Sprints, the company has now added yet another offering to its vast array of products. Recently, it had launched enterprise messaging service Cliq last month. Prior to that, Zoho unveiled Zoho One, an all-in-one suite of applications for businesses across every function and organisational group.
