Streamline Sprint Cost Reporting & Gain Control with the Time & Cost Tracker Add-on

The current process for generating sprint cost reports can be a significant time investment for project and product managers. Manual data collection, error-prone calculations, and limited visibility into true cost drivers are common challenges.

The Pain Points You Know All Too Well:

  • Hours Lost to Tedium: Compiling data from multiple sources and manually crunching numbers steals time away from high-value tasks like optimization and strategic planning.
  • The Fear of Errors: Spreadsheet formulas and manual data entry leave you constantly worrying about costly miscalculations that could derail your budget and decision-making.
  • Hidden Cost Drivers: Limited reporting capabilities make it difficult to pinpoint where your budget is going, leaving you unable to fully optimize sprints for maximum efficiency.
