Our Values


These are the values that define our business, product development philosophy and our delivery process.

Empower Teams

We consider "Teams" as the number ONE source of continuously improving the agile initiatives through the notion of "inspect and adapt". Through our apps and process, we help the teams to follow the notion of : making more-informed decisions, gathering full-team insights & giving team members the ownership of their decisions. We follow Play, as a TEAM prinicipal.

Simplicity

"Technical skill is mastery of complexity, while creativity is mastery of simplicity."
-- Erik Christopher Zeeman.
The art of maximizing the amount of work not done is essential. We believe in promoting sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.

Respond to Change

Over 60% of product or project requirements change during the development. Agile methodologies are based on the knowledge that, in order to succeed, they must plan to change. That is why we believe in reviews and retrospectives, that helps us shift priorities regularly based on our customer feedback.

Planning Poker for JIRA


Play scrum poker with an incredible ease and awesome user experience. Seamless and intuitive game play across the globe.

How to Play??

Once the plugin has been successfully installed, you will see a new menu item 'Poker' in the top navigation and the sprint actions menu in backlog view

Create / Edit Game


Choose from the given set of filters to narrow down the issues for the game. Enter name and description that describes the game and you are set to go. For the sake of simplicity, once you setup the game you can play it perpetually. There is not limit to the number of issues. Issues are pulled into the game based on whatever filter you setup at the start of the game.

Games List

Search Games

Game list view shows most recently added or updated games. User can search a game by name. A game can be in preparing, paused or started state. User can simply join the game either as a host or a player by simply clicking on 'Join' button.

Player Roster


The player screen show all the players in the game. Each card reflects real time status, player name and role (host or player). When the game host clicks on 'Begin Pointing' button, all players are automatically taken to the story pointing section.

Game Play


This is the main hub, the poker table if you will. You can see the dealer (game host) and all the players with their real time status. Once everyone have chosen a point value (by clicking the corresponding card), the cards flip over and an average number (rounded to nearest fibonacci number) appears as the estimate value for that round of the game. The game is locked as soon as all the votes are in or host forces the vote. Anybody can change their vote until the game is locked. The Scrum master(game host) can reset/edit the story estimate value. The host can force flip, move to next/previous story in the game or search a story by its summary/description.

Niko Calendar - Team Happiness Tracker


Niko Calendar, also known as smiley calendar or happiness index, is a tool to track your team's mood. Niko-niko is a Japanese term for smiling.

The plugin "Niko Calendar" gives your team a platform to track happiness and improve your team's productivity and well being. Take a look at this publication "Happy Workers Are More Productive". It shows that happier people are approximately 12% more productive. Using this plugin is as simple as pasting a digital sticker(smiley face) on the Niko Calendar. After the data builds up in few weeks, the team can see some color being more dominant, giving some insight to teams mood. It is a good idea to take a look at Niko Calendar during retrospective meetings. The plugin can bridge gaps between geographically distributed teams by providing insights into remote team's mood.

My happiness tracker

User can track their day to day moods with a single click. Easy to use calendar view provides visualization for upto one year of past data.

Analyze the team happiness

"Niko calendar" is a great opportunity for a team to reflect on its morale, motivation and productivity. Open conversation and retrospection can work wonders and transform teams. Visibility is the key to agility. This plugin makes it easy to spot emotional well being of the team, which is otherwise very elusive and hard to track.
Interactive and powerful analytics give team a platform to discover hard to find motivation issues and increase teams productivity.
