to use the Salesforce-JIRA connector for project management

 Top 5 reasons Salesforce JIRA connector

1. Convert Salesforce Opportunities into JIRA Projects

The hand-off between Sales teams and Professional services or Development teams can be tedious. A lot can be lost in translation. By using the connector, you can convert the quote from an Opportunity into a JIRA project with all the details. Every quote line item is converted into a JIRA Issue with:

  • Description
  • Estimated hours
  • Due date
  • Assignee
  • Reporter
  • And more

2. The project starts in perfect alignment with the contract

With the entire project structure in JIRA matching the quote from Salesforce, the project can start on the right foot, with proper alignment between what was sold and the services being provided.

3. Follow and report on project progress in Salesforce using powerful custom reporting

The connector also sends JIRA information back to Salesforce (including work logs, comments, and more) so you can build custom Salesforce reports on:

  • Project profitability 
  • Project burn rate
  • Hours logged vs. Estimated
  • Hours logged per Issue vs. Estimated
  • And more

4. Better, easier project management

Overall, the connector improves project management by making it easier to:

  • Align what was sold to the customer with the service that will be provided.
  • Hand-off projects from the Sales team to the Professional services or Development team.
  • Stay focused on the contractually agreed upon objectives during the project… instead of veering off due to a lack of communication or understanding between teams.
  • Report on the profitability, progress, and resources used for the project.

5. We can customize the connector to your needs

As an experienced Salesforce partner and JIRA user, we have a deep knowledge of the APIs of both platforms. This enables us to further customize the connector based on the current and future needs of your organization.
