Software Issue Manager(SIM) is a project based bug, issue, task and product feature request tracking system with extensive built-in and custom reporting capabilities. Premium editions are available.

Why we developed this plugin

We, Emarket Design, believe that one of the most important factors affecting production of quality products is having a strong requirement management and analysis process. Most projects fail because organizations do not spend enough time on this stage of the project life cycle.
By developing a family of products primarily designed for software issue management, we wanted to meet the needs of like-minded organizations as well as ours and do our share of promoting importance of requirement management and analysis process.

SIM Concepts

Issues are the items you would like to track in your projects. Issues could be tasks, feature requests, bugs or pretty much any thing you need related to your projects.

SIM Projects are identified by a name and a version number. Projects may have unlimited number of issues. Issues can be shared by multiple projects. You can create manual issues from the admin backend by setting the author.

All Software Issue Manager editions support open, closed or mixed projects/issues. Frontend login and registration forms are available.

The SIM Starter edition uses built-in role based access:
* Admins can access all
* Editor as a project manager
* Author as team member
* Contributor as client

Pretty good "ISSUE TRACKIING SYSTEM", but it locks some basic features. No "Search and Add" feature, no search plugin, no search and add plugin, no field name editor, no personal fields, no language translations, the style does not match the theme selected, a little bit slow, no open and close listings, etc. I do like it anyway, but I think it is not totally complete. It is a good tool for starters but The one that I really like, and I would love to see something better available for wordpress, is called PERSONAL CALL CENTER PRO, and it is located on the web. I haven't find anything better yet. but I am hopping this plugin grows enough to match the one that I mention. Keep up the good work folks! You are in the right road. Congratulations.

This product serves a great niche for internal project management. Would love to see some updates (i.e. default OS versions). Would be nice if it had an option for auto-selecting most-recent project or last used project when adding tasks. Would like to see a way to import/export tasks using CSV.

I was searching for a simple way to track Issues/Bugs for collaborative development projects and have used Redmine, Mantis, etc. type systems at other companies, but did not have the skills/experience to set these up on our web server. My skills/experience does stretch to Word Press Sites, although I am no expert, but the SIM plugin was really easy to setup and get working - just a few hours of my time. Have been very pleased with this plugin and would definitely recommend it for anyone with Word Press experience who needs this type of bug tracking tool.
