Offering a holistic view of product development, Productboard lets you build roadmaps that can be tailored to different audience personas so that everyone knows exactly what’s getting built, why, and who it’s for.

Craft.io: flexible product roadmap software
Craft.io offers flexible product roadmap software, meaning product managers can easily customize and choose not only how to create a roadmap—but how much information they’re sharing with specific teams and individuals within the wider organization.

You can also track your dev team’s progress (which updates automatically), as well as assign and manage features with a single click. Even better, Craft.io creates one place for those across the organization to view a product’s general progress at any time without constant reliance on a product manager to provide these updates.
After a free trial, Craft.io offers paid plans starting at $39 per user, per month.
