Unlike some of our competitors, we don't charge you extra if you create more requirements or access them more often! With Accompa, you're free to focus on creating great requirements - instead of worrying about being nickel-and-dimed by the requirements tool vendor!
Manage Backlogs & Roadmaps
You can now manage backlogs and roadmaps for multiple products and projects easily.
Accompa has a powerful feature called "SmartViews" that enables you to group and organize requirements using custom criteria. For example, "Display all requirements for Product-A, scheduled for version-N, sorted by priority".
You can create an unlimited number of SmartViews - to organize your backlogs and roadmaps.

A "Baseline" is a "snapshot" of items (such as requirements, features, use cases, test cases, etc.) at a certain point in time.
You may find it useful to create a baseline at each significant milestone during a project - such as:

- When requirements are shared with another team
- When requirements are frozen for a release

This enables your team to define and manage custom attributes needed to meet your organization's unique needs.
Implement field dependencies to dynamically alter forms based on products, modules, etc.
This enables you to manage requirements for multiple products, modules, or projects that need different requirement attributes.
