In order to combat technical challenges with accessing requirements, Visure has released a new web-based interface for reviewing requirements.
Many organizations have mature requirements management platforms. However, these platforms tend to be accessible only to the technical and product teams responsible for defining, designing, and implementing these products.
When requesting feedback on requirements, work needs to be done either to install appropriate tools for stakeholders or to move the requirements to another medium to enable collaboration. Both of these are significant bottlenecks, increase frustration, and discourage collaboration.
Recognizing this challenge, Visure has released Web Reviewer 5.0. This enables both technical and non-technical stakeholders alike to review and approve requirements as well as test and design specifications.
Web Reviewer 5.0 enables access to requirements with only a web browser, skipping the installation and setup steps previously required. The stakeholder is presented with an easy-to-use interface, and requirements are displayed in full fidelity as the product team envisioned.

Many organizations focus on various challenging, intense, time-consuming initiatives without remembering who their users are and what they really need. Low-friction methods to obtain feedback quickly and easily help to ensure stakeholder alignment.

So you’ve gone Agile. You do daily scrums, retrospectives, and all the “right” Agile ceremonies. But still your organization isn’t quite convinced. It is now critical to balance the drivers and goals of both Agile and traditional thinking in order to achieve organizational success.
