Asana

I think the best part about Asana is how we can use it seamlessly across the company within all departments and have separate spaces for each department as well. We are all remote so when we aren't able to have a standup meeting it is easy to pop in there and see where everyone is on a specific project

Confluence

Integrations Users can integrate applications into Confluence either through templates created by other applications or through other Atlassian products. Users also tend to integrate their Jira software with Confluence for streamlined project management. Integrating applications with Confluence can help users centralize and simplify project planning. [Enterprise-Grade] SecurityUse the popular Atlassian tool and feel comfortable uploading your files and personal information to the public. Confluence features [enterprise-grade] security across entire organizations.

Confluence

  • Automatic Email notifications of new updates in the Confluence area
  • The platform integrates easily with other Atlassian platforms including third-party apps thus improving its reliability

Cons

Asana

  • Some users might find the user interface a bit dull and un inspired
  • We found the way to use multiple workspaces a bit confusing
  • It takes quite a bit of planning to build a well organized workspace in order not to have way too many projects and tasks all over the place
Louis Schietekat | TrustRadius Reviewer

Confluence

  • Some of the components can be a little clunky to use and configure on pages.
  • I've run into a few issues where edited pages refuse to publish and work is either lost or time wasted copying and pasting to a new document that will publish.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Usability

Asana 9.0
Based on 22 answers
It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

This rating is specifically for Atlassian's self-help documentation on their website. Often times, it is not robust enough to cover a complex usage of one of their features. Frequently, you can find an answer on the web, but not from Atlassian. Instead, it is usually at a power user group elsewhere on the net.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the initial implementation (and the subsequent upgrades and implementations made over the years).
This product has never rose to the level of being an major issue at an executive level. It has quietly and valiantly done it's job for our company!

Alternatives Considered

Asana

Asana compared to Jira is certainly better in terms of user experience, since most of the people can start using it basically without having any kind of training or previous explanation, which makes it really useful not only for people already used to project management but also for people new in the matter and with a need of a tool that provides all that value in the quickest and better way
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

I haven't use any other software that I could compare to AtlassianConfluence. The closest one would be Sharepoint, but it's a different beast. Sharepoint has more feature, but it's a lot harder to use and understand. Furthermore like many Microsoft solutions the UI is terrible and very difficult to understand sometimes. Atlassian Confluence is just plain easy to use.

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.

Return on Investment

Asana

  • Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines.
  • Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running.
  • Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving.
Kristi Porter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Confluence

  • We've gone from folders and folders of Word documents and PDFs into a single system with a search feature to bring all of our data together and trackable
  • While onboarding took a bit longer for the company (to switch from a Word document centric mindset - to a web-based one), overall the company has embraced the features and power of Confluence within the working stack
  • However, as costs continue to climb for the Atlassian product, we are forced to continue our evaluation of the product - with replacing it a remote possibility if it begins to outprice its usefulness to us.
