Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need a tool that is light and does its job, Zepel is great. It currently does not have full fledged integrations, but I've been seeing some early mock ups from the team and I believe it is coming soon. If you are someone who needs tighter integrations, it is just a matter of few weeks I believe. Other than that, this is great! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Love that Zepel has an interface like a document, is simple to use, and has all the functionalities you need to track your work. As an organization it is important for us to work together with multiple teams. Zepel lets you have multiple Boards within a Project and give a Board for each team. This allows us to track work in every team, handover work from one team to another, and complete our work on time effortlessly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We would like to have the capability for time tracking. That is missing in this tool. Hoping this would come soon.

At least if we they provided public API we can use that to integrate to third party services. When contacted, they said API is currently being developed. So, I'm hoping this will get solved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great tool if you want to do more than just task tracking. It allows you to track progress in specific teams and even track your development as a whole. Be sure to give it a try properly and go through their product guide. They are very helpful to get started. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Zepel to plan features, work with members from multiple teams, and collaborate cross functionally. This allows to see who is doing what, what a specific team is working on, and track the progress as a whole. And most importantly, we get to spend time focusing our time doing our work instead of learning the tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

This tool has all the necessary functionalities one would need in order to plan and keep track of their development efforts. It isn't cumbersome to set up which is a huge advantage. Our team adopted the tools quickly because of this and it has been smooth to use throughout.

The feature progress view is great because it allows us to have a roadmap of what we need to build and track the progress of the entire feature across multiple teams.

There were a couple of glitches that we ran into, but they got sorted out pretty quickly when we reached out to their support.

All in all, I'm impressed and extremely happy with the tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It'd be great if there was a way to set dependencies between different user stories and tasks. The tool currently lacks this. Rather than enforcing a rigid dependency, at least being able to see that one user story is dependent on another would be great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a PM tool that gets out of your way and allows you to do what you do best - write code and build great products - then Zepel is the tool for you. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are currently using Zepel to keep track of our product development efforts. We plan and spec features using their document interface. Then the designers, QA, and developers are brought onboard to kickstart the development. We use Sprints to track the progress of them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Simple, easy, no jargon, straight forward tool which even developers love. As a developer, it has always been hard to use project management software. Usually PM tools are complex, heavily process oriented and a scary place. I didn't feel any of these thing while using Zepel. Love using it. I have been using it to log my user stories and break it down to tasks. The structure and breakdown helps me to estimate better. Once that is done we have being using Sprints along with board to execute. All of these happens seamlessly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing yet to capture task dependencies. I am currently working around this using sub tasks. Also any API would be nice. Will be easy to integrate with our tools. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a developer friendly PM tool, look no further. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I am trying to manage my feature and backlog. Planning and executing features are seamless in Zepel. Love the boards, document and sprint combination. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We were using Trello for tracking all our tasks and coordination. We seem to be missing something when we had to plan a project and while hand off work across team. Our search for a better product ended when we came across Zepel. Now our work flows seamless. Be it planning as a team or pulling a cross team project, it has been a bliss. All this with simple and intuitive UI. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Being an on the go team, we would like to have a mobile app to capture and update task statuses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want a project management tool that brings all actors in your team together, just like your manager does, go ahead and give Zepel a try. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are team of 8 people working across two cities. We were looking for a way to manage our projects collaboratively across cities. Being a operations heavy org, moving tasks across team seamlessly is core to our success. With Zepel, we were able to create a board for each of our team and track/executing our tasks better. Zepel looks like Trello on Steroids. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Zepel makes it super easy for us to both plan our work (thanks to their simple, document like interface) and easy to track the work with Kanban Board. We assign tasks to team members, have conversations, share attachments, and track the progress of each task with Zepel itself effortlessly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way time tracking feature. Right now this isn't a mandatory for us, but would be nice to have this as a feature. It would help us track more effectively. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Zepel is easy to use and quick to implement. If you need help the team is usually online and quick to respond. Play around with the app first before you bring in your team members. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I've been using this as a freelancer for a few months now with a couple of clients and have found Zepel to be a good product with lots of potential. There have been a few small issues as it's a new product but the developers have been very responsive and open to honest feedback. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Currently the mobile experience is a bit poor. Not so bad for me, but a client who is usually working in the field has commented that they prefer to wait until they are back at a laptop. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using it as drop in replacement for more heavy weight project management tools, for my use-cases Zepel is ideal. (Small projects with 3 or 4 collaborators) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The paper interface and intuitive shortcuts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The lack of full API support and third party integrations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developers hate JIRA. It's clunky and it gets in their way and there's a steep learning curve. Zepel solves these pain points beautifully.

It worked well for the API module within chargebee which follows both a sprint and kanban model for different cycles. The product is slick and responsive. The Zepal team is diligent on support. Overall it's a very pleasant experience using Zepel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Moving from JIRA was simple. It took less than an hour for us to get started. The team adopted to the tool easily and continue to use the tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Waiting for public API. I hear it is in progress and should be out any time soon. So, no dislikes per se. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting members from multiple teams in one page. It was effortless because our development team found it 100 times easier than JIRA and our non-technical team loved it too Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
