Share Plans, Build Roadmaps…And Go Beyond
Do more than Visualize – Act: Hello Focus is the alternative to Roadmunk that actually allows you to execute on the strategy of your roadmap.
When you want to share roadmaps with team members, external stakeholders, organize internal conferences and simply gain feedback on a visual plan, choose Roadmunk.
If you want to actually execute on feedback, set priorities, focus on tasks related to product development and empower your team to 10x their productivity through focus, choose Hello Focus.
Hello Focus is so much more than just roadmaps: we’re sparked by an idea (Focus), not a singular function. We don’t limit your technique or your tasks – we simply help you maintain focus on what you’ve decided is important.
Whether that’s building roadmaps, assigning and scheduling tasks to developers for a feature release, or inputting user feedback on features, our next-gen app helps you to hook all the pieces (and people!) that come together when you’re in the intensive process of app building.
We’re interested in the “how” of how your engineers work. And we give you the flexible tools to do it without breaking focus – or a sweat!
Connecting Meaningful Data with Elegant Design
Roadmaps and visualizations like Gantt Charts (another Hello Focus feature that’s a user favorite!) help elevate product management into high-level objectives.
Unlike clunky predecessors, we’re not stuck in the past. Our roadmaps and Gantt Charts give you the ability to perform classic functions like check-ins, dependency reviews, and resource and task allocation – for both people and products – while our user interface is so simple, there’s practically no onboarding time.
Hello Focus roadmaps and simplified Gantt Charts help you to connect to the data that matters to you. So if user feedback and help desk tickets are your main assets, input them into the system and build a roadmap of deliverables and features for a product, based on this powerful raw data.
You’ll maintain the ability to share these plans across teams and gain important feedback, allow members to propose new features and accept or reject based on input – all while keeping communications firmly in the cloud (and outta your email!)
Hello Focus is the design-friendly and dependency-sensitive alternative to Roadmunk that’s helping product managers be effective project managers too.
Keeping Everyone On the Same Page
Building a product requires team members to remain in the loop. At the same time, you don’t want to overwhelm everyone. And you want each person to maintain focus only on what matters to them.
With Hello Focus, you decide who that is and what they need to do. We take care of the “how”. Team members and managers can enjoy role-based access and can focus only on relevant tasks that come up for that specific day.
Blend the personal with the professional: keep your calendar organized with product release dates and piano recital commitments and give each scheduled task the attention it deserves.
Be aware of upcoming task projects with roadmaps that connect with task lists and schedules of team members. And, ensure everyone remains on task, through working hours, with our hand “DO Not Disturb” function.
It’s just one more way we’re helping you maintain focus and get it all done.
Left Brain Functionality Meets Right Brain Creativity
Building an app – whether in-house or for clients – is a resource- and attention-demanding undertaking.
You need a tool that’s going to help you talk in terms of tasks, in order to maximize daily efficiency, while maintaining a larger vision. At any time, you can stop, take stock and assess where you are on your project roadmap, tightening resources and team members’ tasks so they better reflect the goals of the project.
Have a new creative direction for the project to go in? Simply update the Gantt Chart and the watch the dependencies adjust themselves.
Hello Focus pulls together simplified task management with for a solution that is truly adaptable. Roadmaps, logs and charts are shareable and viewable to team members while the ability to set viewing and editing access is role-based and flexible.
Laying out the high level objectives and deliverables through roadmaps and Gantt Charts, which are then broken down into small, manageable, bite-sized chunks or tasks is what the app does best.
Doing More…With Less
Hello Focus is so handy not because of a flush of features: rather, it’s how you work with the flexibility of these features.
It’s a robust app that delivers to you only what’s relevant and most important. When it comes to daily task deliverables, you get to set it and forget it. But when it’s time to run a client check-in, count on the shareable and beautifully-designed roadmaps to help you articulate a vision and direction.
