Clubhouse Releases an Enterprise Alternative to Atlassian’s Jira for Software Development Teams

NEW YORK, Oct. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clubhouse, the go-to project management software company loved by software teams around the world, today launched its Enterprise Edition offering to offer additional security and support to customers. Clubhouse released its Standard Edition in 2016, and it is used today by more than 1,000 organizations, including Elastic, FullStory, Glossier, HireVue and LaunchDarkly.

"The options in the software development space for project management tools are limited and often are very complex for teams to use,” said Edwin Yuen, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “Clubhouse is a modern project management tool, with both power and simplicity, that users want to use, not have to use."

Customers on Clubhouse:

  • “Clubhouse is fine grained enough that each sub-team can track the tasks they're working on, but allows us to zoom out to review the roadmap at a team, product, or stack level. We have everything in one place, so there is no useless duplication of data across tools.” - Clinton Gormley, Elastic Stack Team Lead at Elastic
  • “The Engineering team was using Jira, but information around the product roadmap and milestone tracking lived mostly in Asana. Clubhouse has allowed us to bridge this gap by allowing both teams to work within one product.” - Peter D’Orsi, Director of Product, Portfolium
  • “Different teams were using different tools, and essentially we got to a point where we needed something smarter than Trello, without forcing us to do things in a certain way,” said Mia Judkins, Lead Project Manager at ModCloth.
  • “The ability to be working on a task list at the smallest level, where I can check things off, all the way up to tracking my entire company's engineering velocity at the milestone level, and being able to do that out of the box without any configuration or hiring a consultant to set it up is very compelling to me.” - John Kodumal, co-founder and CTO, LaunchDarkly
  • “So many of the tools are so constrained to agile development and methodology; so if you don’t use that, or use a hybrid methodology, it feels like the tool is punishing or shaming you. We wanted something with just enough structure that could be adapted to how we work, without us having to fall completely in line with the driving philosophy of the tool. Clubhouse fit that really well.” - Brett Collinson, SVP of Product, Backpack Health

Project management tools for software development are either too simple and do not scale as teams grow, or they are overly complex to a point where the only choice is to adopt multiple tools and/or project views such as Atlassian’s Trello and Jira. These complex project management tools create silo effects within organizations that minimize collaboration and visibility between engineering teams and the rest of the organization.

Clubhouse is the first project management platform for software development that successfully bridges collaboration across high-growth businesses. The platform provides the perfect balance of simplicity and structure so product and engineering teams can effectively plan, collaborate, and manage their work across the entire organization and it scales as their teams grow, without friction and bloat to slow them down.

“Our Enterprise launch marks a major milestone as we enable larger software teams to get the metrics that they need, be even more secure, and have access to additional support,” said Kurt Schrader, co-founder and CEO of Clubhouse. “We’re aggressively innovating and advancing our platform to provide an intuitive but powerful experience for our customers so product and engineering teams can build better software, faster.”

From day one, Clubhouse’s philosophy has been to deliver products and features that are simple but powerful enough so teams can focus on what matters – working together to create quality software their customers love. The Clubhouse Enterprise Edition, a highly requested plan type from customers, enables software development teams to build and collaborate at scale by offering the following benefits:

  • Enhanced security with SAML Single Sign-On (SSO). Enabled on Clubhouse’s web and mobile apps, users can choose between opting in all or a subset of your users to SSO.
  • Robust privacy with closed organizations. Users can protect sensitive information, and who has access to it, by limiting access to stories, epics and milestones to specific organizations.
  • Optimized workflow with a dedicated account manager and priority support. Dedicated account managers will provide bi-annual team onboarding and training sessions and Quarterly Business Reviews.
  • Annual volume discounts for 100+ users. Users can have unlimited workspaces, observers, integrations, and API access.
  • Stream data in real-time (coming soon). Users can connect CIubhouse to their data warehouse for real-time reporting alongside their other business metrics.
