Accelo

It is really well suited for organizations that need to have a lot of tools but don't want a bunch of data silos. Our organization uses HubSpot as our CRM so we don't necessarily use the CRM portion of Accelo the way it is designed. Mainly because it isn't as agile as HubSpot from a CRM perspective.

I can not be happier. My team was using Basecamp but we outgrew it. We moved to Teamwork and clients stopped using it and so did my team. We were in Teamwork for just a month and decided we needed something better. We then found Asana and it has been a breeze since. My team was far happier and ready to use it and my clients started interacting with it again. It is simple to use, yet very powerful

Pros

  • Retainer Management - I am not sure we could run retainers effectively without it.
  • Hour Logging and Tracking.
  • Customer Email Tracking.

  • Simplicity of user interface without neglecting functionality
  • Timeline and calendar views are extremely useful
  • Templates for repeatable projects

Cons

  • The client portal needs to be improved. It does not have the same user interface as we have within Accelo and we get a lot of client complaints about it.
  • It needs more executive-style reporting and the ability to create your own reports and filters.
  • It needs to be faster. With all of the things Accelo is doing to give you all the data, it is kind of slow compared to other systems in the browser.

  • Nothing to note, really. We love it!

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

They don't fix everything, but they have certainly gone the extra mile for us. When we were frustrated with a recent change that altered our default view of every project, changing it from all projects being visible to just incomplete projects being visible, they wrote a custom script to change all of our default views back for us, so we didn't have to manually click 3,000 times (we have over a thousand projects).

Alternatives Considered

Accelo doesn't really exceed any competitors in any one area of their product, but in 2015 when we made the move this was the best option that included all the tools we wanted. However, user adoption was low in some areas due to the UI, so we scaled back Accelo and added other tools.

Basecamp is a great tool but looks a bit juvenile next to Asana. Basecamp treated us very well but Asana is a perfect fit for us now. It's easy to use and clients use it, which is a big win. Teamwork was extremely complex and cluttered. Something that made is really hard for my team and clients to embrace. We were with Teamwork for one month, then we moved to Asana!

Return on Investment

  • It substantially reduced the number of systems we use to run our business.
  • It reduced the need to train our staff on a variety of platforms.
  • It gave us the ability to have a client-facing portal that directly integrates with our backend systems.

  • We went from disorganized to having our processes fully documented. This allows for projects to be duplicated and started faster, increasing my margins.
  • Less opportunity for missed tasks or confusion.
  • Progress checking always available and easy to use (for our clients)
