If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

MeisterTask

The best part about Meistertask is how dead simple it is, while still absolutely nailing what it needs to really get right. Meistertask makes task management dead simple for me and keeps the detail out of the way unless I specifically need it.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • For me everything works fine except problems using it mobile - crashes easily.

From my perspective, MeisterTask's unique value comes from its deep connection with MindMeister (mind mapping tool) starting with this and then being able instantly to sync the map into a Kanban/scrum type board. I am a very heavy Trello user and most of my work is held in Trello - both tools are exceptional. Trello has the edge because more people use it, MeisterTask has the edge because of the mind mapping thing. Personally, I find it hard to 'think' or 'brainstorm' in Trello - it works better for me keeping focused. I used stories on board to 'think' before sending it to Trello and this worked for me too - however I found myself coming back to the mind mapping thing when I needed to grind on a stream of creative consciousness.
Collecting assets or information on a card for a post or email is best in Airboard and then linking to the Meister Task or Trello card.
Trello does have a slight edge here with the pro version as MailChimp, Publicate and Twitter link directly to each card with the power up feature.

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • Once you have committed to this tool you will save time between ideas and execution. I have not used it with groups of people, however, I know that when a group of people gathers around one app and works with it, things get done.
  • I have saved time in the space between moving ideas from a [map] into here - that saves me hours of navel gazing!
  • Gathering information on one card for one blog, podcast or email newsletter is another key time saver and being able to link to folders and files directly from within the app is heaven!
