What is a Jira bug tracking tool?
Jira software was originally designed as a bug and issue tracking tool. Beloved in the developer community, it has extended to become a management tool for work and projects. While Jira is still used for bug tracking and task management, it is increasingly popular for project management, product management and requirements and test case management. It’s particularly useful for software development when working with Agile methodologies due to its configurability and customisation. Interestingly JIRA comes from the Japanese word "Gojira" which means Godzilla.
Is BugHerd a bug tracking tool?
Like Jira, BugHerd began as bug tracking software, but has shifted to being a website and application review and feedback tool.
Where is the feedback sent?
BugHerd turns the feedback provided into tasks on a kanban style Task Board. Using the Task Board, you can sort, assign and track tasks to completion.
What are the differences between Jira and BugHerd?
Developers describe BugHerd as “simple issue tracking for web developers”. It’s a layer over a website where bugs can be captured and managed without the reporter needing to include technical information such as their operating system or the browser they’re using. This simplicity makes it incredibly easy to use with clients who may or may not have the same technical appreciation as the web development team.

Jira helps “plan, track and release great software”. While it began life as a Jira bug tracking tool, it has evolved into a powerful work management tool for agile software development teams.

Entire projects work from early requirements through to test case management can be tracked and reported on using Jira.

Like a lot of powerful tools, it can be overwhelming to those who don’t use it frequently, and getting customers with little technical knowledge to report issues and bugs through Jira bug tracking tool can be challenging.
