Pilot and Onboarding

Our 3LO integration is fast and non-invasive, requiring no large-scale implementation within your organization. In less than 24 hours, you and your group managers can begin experiencing the benefits of Acumen, and be warned - it's highly addictive!

After the integration with Allstacks, you will need to run a pilot with several teams to get their buy-in. 

To use Allstacks effectively, the team will need to invest significant amounts of time for them to understand all the metric offerings and decipher what they mean.

Only get what you need, no more no less. Data is useful, but it can be detrimental if you don't know how to use it. We are here to help you solve your problems, not create new ones. We provide you with trend analysis, alerts, benchmarks and actionable tips to help you make the most of your engineering talent by going beyond just benchmarks and processes.

Be barraged by endless metrics, charts, and features that won’t get you what you need. Allstacks will get you as far as providing you with high-level team performance metrics but falls short in helping you pinpoint where attention is needed and how to fix it.

Our experience shows that you will end up using 3-4 metrics as workarounds to try and capture what you need, and your team will churn out quickly without getting any real value.

Here, there is no room for compromise. We are SOC2 Type 2 and ISO 27001 certified and GDPR compliant.

Did we say cut the bullshit? $10 per developer, no weird limitations, unlimited team members, projects, and repos. Oh, and you can pay monthly and stop whenever you want.

If you aren’t running a team of over 50 people Allstacks won’t even offer you their full services - you need a minimum of 50 users to qualify for their cheapest subscription. Whatsmore is that this subscription isn’t actually “cheap” - 50 users will run you $400 per user, or $20,000 per year!

When using Allstacks, keep in mind it's project-oriented. If you're seeking an overview of your project's advancement and players, it's a decent choice. But don't expect to find any resources, insights or suggestions to enhance your workforce
