Asana

I like to stay very organized, so I can't imagine a scenario where Asana is less appropriate. Whether you're a one person team, or you work amongst multiple departments/teams, Asana offers the flexibility to bring everyone into the fold and keep everyone on the same page and on task. Our marketing department uses Asana to task out everything: copy, advertising deadlines, website updates, image design, PR and award management, etc. We were using Basecamp before this, but our marketing team became too large, and we weren't able to assign subtasks to individual people with individual due dates.

Avaya Communicator

Small, Medium or Large enterprise - You need Avaya to know its true power and efficient communication. The extreme ease of use just drives the large up-front cost down in terms of effort required. Might not be ideal for really small enterprises because of the large up-front costs.

Pros

  • Report of tasks added to tasks completed to see how productive the team has been with a particular project.
  • Individual tasks so you can see how swamped/not others on the team are.
  • Adding a project/task to multiple projects is awesome. We have a general ALL marketing projects in one project and then separate them out in another (email, social media, etc.).

  • Super simple to set up and get it running.
  • Powerful and packed with a ton of and tools I have yet to see in the competitors.
  • Automated attendants, caller ID, automatic callback and many more features which are extremely useful.

Cons

  • The layout of Asana is a little intense and could be cleaned up a bit to provide a cleaner, more focused look.
  • Can't drag and drop all tasks from one subtask to another.
  • Would be nice if one subtask could live in two tasks (similarly that one task can live in multiple projects).

  • Honestly we haven't seen anything wrong with our Avaya communicator product.
  • Maybe lower cost per user would be better going forward but that's not a con for the service it provides.

Asana is great for how I end up using it. When a new project launches and I get busy, I can easily pick it up and begin using it again and as I get more time (or the project completes) I can drop it again. It seems to morph better than any other application to exactly what project I'm working on, what I need to track, etc. It simply fits into my life extremely well and I'll end up using it again every time I start a new project.

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

Asana lets you view things in tasks. Trello is more geared toward projects with their board layout. I find Asana to have the best user interface of all project management softwares. It may be missing some functionality (like budgeting and time tracking -- which you can add on with integrations), but I feel that I can actually use it. With the other project management tools I get frustrated by trying to figure them out that I don't use them at all
