Having a good test management tool is very important in every project. You can easily become confused, if you are working on many projects with different bug tracking and test management tools.
Just imagine that you have a powerful bug tracker and a test management system in one application, on one place and it works very well – that would be very cool. There are different tools which has both functionalities together, but many of them are complicated or pricey.
I have searched for tools which has both bug tracker and test management functionality and they are simple for use and their costs are correct. Found this: Kanoah Tests
