What we do
With Obo, product teams can quickly and easily map product plans to both internal priorities and market needs. Obo helps you organize, guide, prioritize, and validate everything that goes into your product plans, so you can make data-driven decisions before you commit valuable engineering and development resources. And, you can share every step of the product decision process with key stakeholders: executives, sales, marketing, services, and even customers and prospects.
Why it matters
Studies show that most products fail to meet expectations. Why? Because many product teams lack the resources to get sufficient input from key stakeholders or from their target customers. They’ve had to rely on ad hoc processes and disconnected tools, and make too many decisions based on opinions. And it's a struggle to communicate across disparate groups of stakeholders. Until now.
How it works
The Obo product decision system lets you create business drivers that serve as a "common currency" you use to evaluate ideas and features . You can manage your Feature FunnelTM from idea to committed plan, with integrated stakeholder or market surveys to gauge feature preferences; a data-driven prioritization engine that supports sophisticated "what if" scenario modeling; and contextual collaboration that allows the entire product team to participate. Obo also captures every step in the product process in a comprehensive, searchable system of record.
“The value of Obo lies in having data to back up your product release plan—that you can then share with peers and executives to communicate why these features should be launched in this order. Your conversations are much easier when they’re based on data rather than (potentially competing) opinions.” — Product Director
