The following list describes how Productific beats Shipright as a roadmap tool for app developers and indie makers.
Pricing: Productific is more efficient
While Productific and Shipright bot have a free tier for testing and hobby projects, Shipright's start-up plan is priced at 49$ per month. Productific's start-up plan at 11$ per month provides significantly better pricing value for running a start-up, small product or mobile app (9$ with annual billing).
Productific provides more look and feel customizing options to make your product listing fall in line with your product's design and branding.
Productific provides more options to configure your listing: switchable functions like named users vs. guest users, public vote counts, requests, subscriptions and comments.
Roadmap, Changelog, and How-to
Besides feature voting Productific provides listings for roadmap, changelog and how-to documents. These listings can be a great traffic source for your product. We found that users looking for how-to descriptions are much more likely to provide valuable voting feedback. Shipright's feedback board is limited to a developer centric, Jira-style voting board.
Productific hosts rich text idea and product listings. You can work with headlines, lists, colors and embedded images to present your product and ideas in a beautiful way.
Shipright is a SaaS tool for gathering customer feedback. It has a solid background and clear design - though we believe Productific is the better deal for most indie makers and app developers.
