Roadmunk

Visual roadmap software for product management

4.8/5 (21 reviews)

Roadmunk Overview

Roadmunk is web-based software designed to help create and share attractive visual roadmaps for product management. The solution enables the entire team to efficiently collaborate in planning the future steps of a product. Product managers and stakeholders can weigh in on a plan's development, utilizing the solution as a visualization tool through several view types, resources and data sets.

Roadmunk enables users to create multiple types of custom roadmaps and seamlessly drag and drop them onto the collaborator. The sprint roadmap creates a visual short term plan for upcoming sprints; the project roadmap provides vital status updates to stakeholders; and the release roadmap helps plan out long term releases across various product lines. Roadmunk’s unlimited roadmap pivots enable users to filter and visualize one data set for each unique stakeholder.

Team collaboration features enable organizations to track consensus in a single, shared space, and discuss plans across multiple roadmaps by adding comments directly into the platform. Roadmunk allows users to visualize progress and indicate tactical achievements by adding milestone markers to a roadmap. Product managers can add custom color palettes and branding to differentiate departments, product line stage, or project progress status. Users can also set custom access permissions by assigning different user roles to participants.

Roadmunk’s reviewer mode allows users to securely share roadmaps with stakeholders for feedback. All roadmaps are ‘presentation ready’ and can be published to PDF, PNG, and PowerPoint using Roadmunk’s export engine. Users can store and manage roadmaps locally on a computer, or share the latest edits as a private HTML version with a password and hash encrypted URL. The solution integrates with JIRA to bring extra visibility to stakeholders by importing issues and epics into Roadmunk.

I trialled a number of roadmapping products before eventually selecting Roadmunk, most of the big names.

I found that for my needs almost all of the competition were hellishly complicated - I didn't need the strategy/business case definition in there, I don't need a JIRA integration, and I'm not managing hundreds of roadmaps.

I was able to very quickly get up and running with Roadmunk and in a very short period of time got to what I needed - a view of the future which I could present to the Board to get sign off on the roadmap.

I've since started using it for more than that - i plan in our architectural/platform roadmap, I use it to work out which of my team to assign to products, and so on. It's really powerful.

My one qualm with the product is that the bulk of the dev/new features seems (understandably) to go on stuff for large customers, and isn't always relevant for my needs. But as I say, the product as it stands helps me a lot.

Noah & the team have been super helpful whenever I've needed anything, too.

Pros

It's incredibly easy to use, and because it's a well thought out product, it is flexible enough to most or all of my roadmapping needs.

Cons

Can be difficult to use in presentations without a lot of work on the colouring.

Simplicity & Flexibility

Roadmunk is the easiest and most flexible tool for creating visually compelling roadmaps. I have used them with technical teams, business teams, and executives - each audience needs a slightly different view and Roadmunk makes it easy to tell your story across those audiences.

Pros

The flexibility - being able to pivot into different views without recreating the roadmap is a lifesaver. This allows you to speak to your audience's needs and get buy in. Also, the tool is easy to update and incorporate feedback. Another big plus is shareability - my stakeholders have a link to the roadmap in their inbox before the meeting is over thanks to Roadmunk.

Cons

I would love to see a stripped down mobile view that could be used to reference information on the fly.

Roadmunk is the ultimate way to organize and share your roadmaps

The ability to take my roadmaps out of Google Docs, OmniGraffle, or Sketch and turn them into something that I could maintain and share makes everyone happy, especially the teams making decisions based on the roadmap.

Pros

The flexibility! There are so many ways to configure your roadmaps and provide different views of the data for different stakeholders. The ability to combine Roadmunk with Jira has been very helpful for my team. The roadmaps just look great.

I received a lot of help from the staff when asking questions and they even offered a training session.

Cons

While it does roadmaps very well, I would more comfortable with a lower price point and potentially different options for user levels.

I've been stumped by the user interface a few times and have found that it is NOT infinitely flexible. I think it is deceptively restrictive - it looks like you can do anything, but you can only do a lot.

Like many SaaS apps, the sales funnel was very automated and I received an abundance of emails.

FINALLY! THE roadmap product I have looking for, since years...

Honestly, after decade of Project Management and multiple PM + Gantt charts software, even having tried PowerPoint & Excel "high-level roadmap graphs"... NOTHING ever was really working...

gantt have typically bad design... PowerPOint or Excel can create nice design, but there is no data behind it... no automation, no easy update...

And when it comes to Product Roadmap... usually same problem, but hopefully some people GOT IT there, and designed NICE LOOKING & "sexy" charts/roadmaps... but too often there are totally disconnected from data and can not be updated easily... just pure design...

So, long story short: after months of intensive research, I FINALLY found RoadMunk!! The nirvana for me: I could design & present super SEXY Roadmaps... AND construct them based on data, allowing me to pivot dimensions easily and show subset of the roadmap. Sexy AND Powerful!

The unique feature of RoadMunk? The MATRIX view of the data, in addition to the Roadmap view... Fantastic, could not live anymore without it.

Honestly, I searched hard... there nothing better there for representing nice-looking and adaptable high-level Roadmaps! Highly recommended

Pros

NICE LOOKING & "sexy" charts/roadmaps

Cons

no direct integration with backend data (Excel, google sheet, Jiira)

We have several different roles wanting to know where different projects/initiatives are at. Roadmunk gives the power to the product team to create a view of the roadmap for everyone. From swimlanes to gantt chart style roadmaps - it's great!

Pros

You can create many different "views" of your roadmap tailored for different audiences (C-level, developers, department managers, etc.) so they see what is relevant and important.

Cons

I wish it had a feature intake/request aspect to it, but it doesn't currently.
