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

Trello

Trello is well suited for quickly keeping track of and organizing ideas. Due to the functionality that is more robust than a simple note-taking application, I find myself gravitating towards Trello rather than an alternative for a quick note and task tracking. Trello is NOT well suited as a note-taking application. Where it is great for capturing ideas and tasks, it is not meant for writing paragraphs of text.

  • Keeping track of notes made is easy

  • Trello is very effective at allowing a user to organize ideas in a personal fashion. Yes, the software has constraints in which you must work, but the card-based concept is easily accepted by an user who has every written ideas on scraps of paper.
  • Trello is available as a mobile app, a Mac app and as a website so the software adapts to and leverages the advantages of the platform on which you are currently work.
  • Trello also allows easy updates via email so ideas don't have to be filed for later action. Receive an emailed request and forward it directly to the appropriate Trello board.
  • Trello is very good when collaborating with users who are outside your organization, don't have a company email address or are on the other side of the world.

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.

  • I see Trello as a way for teams to work together remotely and virtually. It would be awesome to integrate video chat. We have to use a separate program to create and execute online meetings.
  • It would be great for Trello to allow you to shrink and grow the width of the lists, instead of all being uniform. That way I can shrink the width of lists that aren't important to me, in just my view.
  • Trello should consider updating the User Interface. It is very engineer looking. They could really make it beautiful.

It does everything we need it to do to manage users and content as it progresses, but could do with more improvements too such as notifications or remote notifications. We have no reason to move for now!

When you dont feel like you need a support team; when things are intuitive; when you start relying on it for numerous projects - thats when you know it has great 'usability'

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

Asana is great compared to Trello, but some of my clients prefer Trello, especially those under eBook publishing and graphics focused businesses.

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.

  • It allows us to check our tasks using a native mobile app which makes it easier to look at them quickly.
  • Ability to give a quick view to pending/working on/finished tasks.
  • Great chance to add additional information on tasks which increases the background information and solves questions when needed.
