Users of Bontq also have access to extensive project management tools, enabling them to track the development lifecycle of their project from start to finish, as well as manage resources, and direct future efforts.
What makes Bontq a viable alternative to some of the other alternatives out there is the web based nature of the software, as well as the ability to integrate video and screenshot capturing and submission into a single application. These features enable a team to adequately document bugs that inevitably arise with any development project, as well as track them as they go from initial entry to resolution.
The Bontq website proves to be a very well designed and informative resource for new users to gain the insight into the product necessary to allow them to make the decision on whether or not it suits their needs. Various videos are available that detail the intricacies of the system, as well as those that discuss some of the more advanced features, and provide a general overview of the use of the software in a development environment. The most useful feature on Bontq is the Demo, which allows a user to experience for themselves how the software will work for them, without requiring registration of any sort.
Bontq offers a free 30 day trial that does not require the user to enter credit card information. Users must click the “Try it Free for 30 Days” button, located prominently on the homepage. The registration form requires that the user enter a unique domain name, choose which plan they wish to sign up for, enter their company name, email address and password with confirmation. After completion of the form, users are then taken to the login page where they must enter their email and password, and then click “Login”. Registration is then complete, and the user can begin using the system on a feature-unrestricted trial basis.

The first is approximately $10 per month, and includes support for three users and three projects with no access to the desktop client. The next available plan is around $20 per month and supports 10 users and 10 projects, as well as access to the Desktop client. The mid range plan includes 20 users, 40 projects and runs around $40 per month, and the second high end plan, which is about $100 per month includes 50 users and 100 projects. The most expensive plan runs approximately $150 per month and gives access to unlimited users, storage, and projects.
