The 2022.2 Product Release is here: smart automations, state-of-the-art roadmapping & enhanced prioritization
Only about 50% of product managers are confident that the products and features on their roadmaps reflect user needs and support their company’s long-term business strategy. If you’re part of the other 50%, it’s no surprise why.
Product managers are pulled in so many different directions – you are continuously fielding questions from customer-facing teams, unblocking cross-functional partners, and seeking alignment from leadership. These tasks are time-consuming and can distract you from important strategic work, like deeply understanding your customers and making sure that you’re building what’s right for them.
With our latest release, we are addressing these common challenges so you can say goodbye to manual work and focus on what matters — building the best product for your customers. Now, you can easily convert customer feedback into actionable insights through smart automations, drive alignment with stakeholders through embeddable, interactive roadmaps, and make more informed decisions with clear, streamlined prioritization frameworks.
Easily transform customer feedback into actionable insights with smart automation
“Prior to this, it was a full-time job to triage notes. I was essentially a ‘traffic cop,’ routing all notes to product managers by tagging their product area manually, and then manually assigning [specific product managers] ownership. Productboard is taking the headache out of this by reducing the time it takes to draw insights on customer feedback”.
— Julia Matthews, DataRobot
It’s hard to stay on top of changing customer needs when you’re getting inundated with customer feedback from all channels. We want to help you make sense of incoming feedback and identify what to build and why – faster. Our smart automations will tune out the noise and surface the insights you need:
- Insights automation: Automatically route relevant customer feedback to the right teams.
- Smart feature suggestions: Leverage machine learning to surface meaningful customer feedback and insights.
- Insights trends: Discover what matters most to customers and inspire what to build next.
Drive alignment through interactive, embeddable roadmaps
“As a product-led company, it’s critical for us to clearly communicate with our stakeholders about our roadmap. Productboard is changing the game with software that’s customer-centric from top to bottom, and helping us get buy-in on our roadmap with more ease. The Productboard and Loom integration is a natural next step for both tools – Loom’s video messaging and video engagement metrics coupled with Productboard’s advanced roadmapping will streamline and improve communication, helping product teams get alignment faster.”
— Joe Thomas, co-founder & CEO of Loom
Aligning stakeholders on what you’re building and getting buy-in on your plans involves creating and recreating roadmaps for different stakeholders, numerous meetings to share the roadmap and your product vision, and even more discussions to get sign-off on product plans. With our new roadmapping capabilities, we’re making it easier for you to take everyone along on the ride, share context on what you’re building, and keep your stakeholders informed on progress:
- Loom integration: Convey your product vision through engaging, pre-recorded videos.
- Roadmap sharing: Embed real-time roadmaps anywhere you need and keep your stakeholders informed and up-to-date.
- Roadmap progress: Create visualizations on objective, feature, and release progress to keep your stakeholders in-sync.
- Roadmap time horizons: Adjust the time granularity of your roadmap to set expectations with different audiences.
Make better, faster product decisions with clear, streamlined prioritization
Prioritizing what to build is difficult. Justifying your reasoning to different stakeholders is an entirely different challenge. To add clarity, transparency, and confidence to decision-making, you can now use Custom prioritization formulas and market-leading frameworks like RICE, WSJF, and ROI in Productboard. These frameworks will allow you to standardize how prioritization is done across your teams, and ensure your work aligns to business goals, product strategy, and customer impact.
With Productboard, you have all the tools you need to speed up your product lifecycle and deliver real value to customers, all while keeping your teams engaged, inspired, and informed.
