Why is Freshrelease a better alternative to Trello?

 Project management 

Built for ever-growing teams

Trello works best as a task management software rather than as a full project management solution. It primarily caters to small teams and will not be able to support large scale complex project needs.

Freshrelease is a comprehensive project management solution with advanced features such as time-tracking, advanced reporting, and sprint planning. It caters to teams of all sizes—small and large.

agile at scale

Manage large scale agile projects 

Trello does not have all the features and analytics required for managing large or complex agile projects. Freshrelease is a full-fledged project management software, where you can plan with a roadmap,  create and prioritize the backlog, run sprints and get key reports all in one place.

software development

Scalable tool for engineering teams

Trello is what we call a lightweight task manager. It provides users with the tools they need to plan projects, assign tasks, and communicate about upcoming work.

You won’t find any out-of-the-box agile solutions for software development. Freshrelease, on the other hand, will help you go agile and use it for an end to end software development.  It has built-in product roadmaps, test case management, advanced sprint planning apart from release management.

value for money

Spend less for more features

We are as transparent as possible with our pricing. Freshrelease provides better value for the money spent.

  • We offer unlimited team boards for free compared to Trello which offers only 10 boards to start off with, every additional board that you require, you would have to invariably upgrade to a paid plan. 
  • Our liberal free plan also offers in-built features like time tracking, progress pulse, smart delay prediction, and advanced sprint planning. Trello, on the other hand, has the constraint of users having to pay for power-ups for any additional feature that is required.
