Frequently Asked Questions
HOW IS ACCEPT SOFTWARE DIFFERENT THAN OTHER TOOLS OUT THERE?
WHAT PROBLEMS DO YOUR SOLUTIONS SOLVE?
Most enterprises rely on an array of spreadsheets, documents, slide decks, off-the-shelf point tools, and in-house solutions to determine which new products and features to invest in. Problem is, these disjointed tools create islands of information — “information silos” — that must be managed. When product planning gets complicated the extra work associated with managing all of this information can become more than the business is able to handle. Product organizations are left with no clear way of synchronizing efforts across distributed teams or to keep the most important things in focus as products move from concept to execution. The resulting requirements chaos, spreadsheet nightmares, miscommunication, lost productivity, delays, and rework can lead to unhappy customers, lost revenues, and shrinking market share.
Accept Software provides the only solutions that enable you to break down process silos to simplify, manage, and automate product planning in holistic, commonsense ways. Explore the Accept Software Advantage.
WHO USES YOUR SOLUTIONS?
Enterprises tasked with delivering better-performing products for demanding customers on aggressive timelines rely on our solutions to balance customer needs, strategic priorities, and business objectives against a backdrop of constant change. They turn to Accept Software when the complexities of product planning outstrip their existing point tools and processes.
HOW IS ACCEPT360 DIFFERENT FROM ALM AND PLM SOLUTIONS?
Accept360 front ends traditional ALM/PLM solutions by helping you determine and refine “what to build” rather than “how to build it.” Our solutions help you align more closely with your markets and ensure you introduce the right products to the right customers for the right reasons and at the right time.
IS ACCEPT360 COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER PRODUCT PLANNING AND EXECUTION OPTIONS?
Through versatile APIs and built-in compatibility, Accept360 provides out-of-the-box integration with the tools and systems you use every day. They empower your distributed teams to work to a common plan of action without disrupting their existing processes or development methods. In addition, you can get the entire interconnected collaboration platform or choose only the capabilities you need. For example, use Accept360 Requirements Management™ with your own or third-party ideation tools. Mix and match components based on what you already have and what you wish to achieve.
WHAT MAKES ACCEPT360 REQUIREMENTS MANAGEMENT DIFFERENT FROM ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS?
Requirements management tools often carry the burden for an enterprise’s entire product planning effort. But traditional offerings work in isolation from other vital product planning functions. In contrast, Accept360 Requirements Management is tightly interconnected with ideation, strategy and product portfolio, and agile management capabilities. It empowers diverse organizations to bring order to requirements chaos and create a cohesive, prioritized product plan with full collaboration of all stakeholders.
CAN I USE IT TO CREATE MY MRD? HOW DO I SHARE MY MRD WITH MY TEAM?
With Accept360 you can automatically generate PRDs, MRDs, and other essential product management, engineering, and marketing documents. Through the convenient SaaS-based web environment, you can immediately share them with anyone, anywhere — even update them with real-time data.
WHAT'S YOUR DELIVERY MODEL?
Accept360 collaborative product planning solutions are available through a subscription-based SaaS model. They require no hardware purchases, software installations, network setup, or ongoing system upgrades on your part. All you need is a web browser to get up and running. We take care of all the systems operations, upgrades, and maintenance for you.
HOW WELL DOES ACCEPT360 SCALE?
Accept360 is scalable enough to support very small teams responsible for only a few products on up to far-flung global product planning organizations with hundreds of products in the pipeline. Accept360 supports thousands of concurrent users. It enables enterprises to process input from tens of thousands of customers and stakeholders, and to efficiently manage many thousands of requirements, interdependencies, and product releases. Indeed, one of the world’s largest mobile device manufacturers manages a quarter of a million requirements with Accept Software.
