Hoping someone can help point me in the right direction. I am very new to JIRA and am looking for a took that my company can use for order management. We have a somewhat repeatable process we use to implement our customers. I was told that JIRA could be the tool we use, but not sure how to get started. Any ideas?
we get an order from sales force that has an expected due date for our product. We then work through the process of getting that product set up those steps include 4 distinct teams that I would want each team to have their own tasks that we can track ownership, and delays.
the implementation team does most of the work. They have weekly calls with the customer and project manage the work , They set up the user in the basic tools and have tech checks and trainings.
Implementation notifies supply chain when we need to order the equipment with our vendor and track when it is ready and ships to our end customer
Tech - they handle ensuring that the customers network is ready and works with our network. THey are not involved in every order just some of them
Product - the provision some of the software for the devices
Hope this helps. :)
Sorry for the delay in responding, but I knew it might take some time. :-)
First, yes, Jira can do this. You can use a Jira Work Management project for the front end to implement a form if you like to receive the "order".
Then you can have a workflow that represents the steps in the entire process of the order being received, process and ultimately fulfilled. Along the way, you can create additional cards if you like for the separate teams (especially if they are working concurrently) and those cards can be created in separate projects (Jira Software if you want or just another Jira Work Management project).
One way to do that is to create an Epic to represent the Order. Then create cards to walk through each of the functions/teams as just mentioned. That way you can see the overall % complete for the order as each tasks is closed out.
You can create custom fields to capture the unique details of our order process as well. Cards can be assigned to folks along the way, and as they complete them, you can use automation to spin up new cards or perform other functions, such as setting due dates, assignees, etc.
I hope that encourages you to give the product a go and see how it works for you. :-)
