BQuTMS, a cloud-based time management system, has recently introduced its integration with JIRA Issue tracking system, a solution by Atlassian Software Systems. JIRA is a proprietary issue tracking product used for bug tracking, issue tracking and project management. It is commonly used by software development teams for agile project management.
As many projects are billed on a time and materials basis, BQuTMS created the time input plugin between the two solutions to be able to input time spent on issues through the desktop application and web based time input system.
The BQuTMS integration will enable the JIRA project management module to be used with the BQuTMS system through retrieving projects, categories, issues and adding time from the BQuTMS into JIRA. The time will be stored in both BQuTMS and JIRA so that reporting through both systems will be possible.
Successful time management is an important part in achieving project objectives and milestones. BQuTMS built its system with the intention of providing solutions for better time and project management. Some key points for success in time management include:
- Capturing data when it happens
- Providing multiple capture options
- Enabling quick real time communication
