The life cycle of web development is simple. Brainstorm the idea, write the code to implement it, test out everything is working fine. End of line. Time for the next one. This would be true in an ideal world where you were on a remote island developing products only for yourself with no other stakeholders. Happy dreamland, no?
But hello practical world! It’s not always that simple. Stakeholders aren’t always on the same page (or even in the same location), collaborating with remote team members can be tough, getting feedback from clients can generate endless email chains and little clarity. Unless sitting over the customer’s shoulder watching their screen, it’s difficult to get visual validation from them.
The common solution in all these cases is - visual bug tracking!
And that’s zipBoard.
Visual feedback in real time
No longer do developers have to take screenshots of issues. No need to attach them in emails and send them with long descriptions. Simply annotate over the screen capture in zipBoard and let team members know what needs to be fixed. Think JIRA meets Awesome Screenshot.
Explain things on whiteboard
Using zipBoard to explain bugs is like being next to team members, pointing out issues on a whiteboard. Communication is simple and everything is live in front of you. Add a URL or e-Learning project and start catching bugs instantly! zipBoard is the website annotation tool you need.
Integrates with your workflow
zipBoard integrates with JIRA and Slack so all team members are up-to-date on progress and don’t have to subscribe to new channels for it.
Out-of-the box solution
No hectic customization. No admin required to setup everything. No need to host on a cloud or put in place a back end infrastructure. zipBoard is ready to use tool right out of the box without any overhead for the user.
Who needs it?
Pretty much everyone who’s working on web development
Working from different locations, teams need to be on the same page. They need to have a live visual example to refer to. Developers should be writing code and not long emails addressing issues.
E - Learning developers
Learning is no longer done via tedious readings of books and documents. It’s all interactive and visual. So why should the tools be old? E-learning designers and developers can upload SCORM compliant file from the learning management system and instantly start reviewing their projects.
Understand how users experience your site or course. Get UX feedback with annotations and comments. Add watchers to include observers in tracking issues and bugs. See your projects in different resolutions. Responsive design testing in your own browser, on your computer.
You need to collaborate with stakeholders. Developers, designers, testers, clients. They all need one platform to review and assess the project. They need one channel to communicate. zipBoard takes care of all this.
Oh and zipBoard doesn’t limit the number of collaborators, irrespective of your plan or project.
Collecting feedback from clients no longer needs to be skype calls with messy screen shares over uneven bandwidth. Invite clients to review projects with a simple click. Clients can add issues and tasks, set priorities to what is more pressing, and are notified automatically when tasks are completed.
Keep all the work in one place, keep different clients separately organized on different projects and add tags within projects to sort things faster.
Quality assurance teams
Do all QA testing without adding any overhead to the project. No need for any technical training for using zipBoard. It’s a simple click and capture interface.
