Why teams prefer Zepel as a JIRA Alternative

An interface everyone understands

The biggest limitation with JIRA is the difficulty in understanding how it works, its slowness, and the clutter that comes with it. For anyone who has not spent several hours trying to learn the tool, it is nearly impossible to get them to update progress on your user stories.

A Desktop Widget next to your code editor

Developers spend a majority of their time on the code editor. Instead of switching back and forth between your project management tool and code editor, they can finally work with none of the distractions.
