Asana

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

azendoo

I think Azendoo is suited well to small office tracking projects and tasks together. The shared projects/calendar use is helpful and can make work easier if everyone uses it in a similar manner. The ability to add things from other sources (Dropbox, Evernote, etc) does make it a useful platform because you can integrate other things into the app well. The visibility and shared spaces provide good accountability and follow up for work being done.

Pros

  • Task management is all but flawless in Asana. Almost everything about the drag n' drop interface is perfectly suited for the assignment and timely completion of lots and lots of tasks and sub-tasks. Asana helped us launch a company record of 323 websites in a single month by streamlining our workflow to eliminate work-related "meta" like trying to figure out who was doing what, what should we do next by priority, and on and on. While Asana may have a great many minor flaws, task management and project management are not among them. I don't think anyone does it better, and it is hard to imagine anyone ever being able to.
  • Keyboard shortcuts. For old-school keyboard junkies like me, there is nothing better or more time-saving than being able to use the tab key to complete common functions quickly. As a long-time sufferer of repetitive stress injury from heavy mouse use, the less I need to rely on that mouse, the better. Just don't hit Tab+B. And don't ask.
  • Tags are especially helpful at organizing and finding groups of tasks. We use tags for almost everything: grouping projects by client company, grouping tasks by department, grouping photo shoots by state, matching prerequisite tasks to their counterparts. With tags, you can customize almost anything in Asana far beyond their probable intended uses.
  • e-mail straight to an Asana project... I can't tell you how much time this saves us being able to just send a client e-mail straight to Asana and have it create a task for you in the appropriate project that you can quickly assign out. You might think, "why not just forward the e-mail straight to the person you're assigning it to?" Well, for starters, in our company they are more likely to be looking at Asana at any given moment than their e-mail client. Second, if it goes to their e-mail address, who else do you copy on it? If it goes to Asana it is public for everyone in the workspace to see and comment on, re-assign to themselves if that person is not in the office that day, or whatever. If it goes in Asana it gets done, but if it goes to someone's e-mail and no one else sees it, the task will probably linger awhile.
  • Support is always respectful, thoughtful and on-target. While they don't necessarily have the resources to provide the same response times as other companies, the response you do get from Asana will usually not disappoint. Even if I know that I may not see a resolution to my issues immediately, at least with Asana I feel confident that I am being heard and that a fix is on the horizon somewhere. I get a sense that Asana's support team genuinely cares about their customers, and that goes a long, long way with me. I have been thanked no less than four times in a single e-mail from Asana support. They are just good people who manage to make YOU feel good about using their product.
  • There are more things Asana does well, and I probably can't really even list them all. The web-based cloud app is very fast, in many cases instantaneous, and we have anywhere from a thousand to two thousand projects with probably hundreds of thousands of tasks. It shouldn't be as fast as it is by any means, but they manage to satisfy somehow. They have a decent mobile app as well, though it is more suited to individual tasks and is of little use to me as a manager overseeing all of them. There are features we don't even use, like Harvest time tracking and several "Hacks". There is just a lot of stuff here.

  • Categories - Azendoo sorts to do lists into workspaces in a way that was relatively helpful.
  • Expandable - there are lots of ways to apply/implement azendoo that makes them useful and flexible to those after a productivity app.
  • Shareable - while no one at my office adopted it, the option to share tasks/progress was helpful.

Cons

  • Better integration into daily life. They would love to be there but it's a conscious effort that is required to get started.
  • Mobile app could use improvements. Archiving tasks don't seem to work, for example.
  • Added complexity (workspaces, project lists, etc.) just make it a bit harder to get going.

  • Not cost effective - I can get similar features for less.
  • Clunky - my phone/web apps did not always sync together perfectly.
  • Premium features in azendoo are some features I can get for free in other apps (Evernote, Asana, etc).

Likelihood to Renew

Based on 32 answers
I am using Asana at the free level tier and have applied it to my own task tracking and planning. My other stakeholders who have implemented Asana would rate the renew question much higher as it is critical to their business. That being said, I am a bigger fan of LiquidPlanner (paid) and Trello (free).

Lots of useful features, if you can learn how to use them and actually implement it across enough of the team to adapt it

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 has its proper place in task management. There are better tools that provide similar functionality but the decision depends heavily on the actual requirements. If you own a small business or a start up, Asana is excellent. If you are an enterprise level organization, you'll want to map the requirements to the key features and functionality. Considering Asana is a free product with a paid model as you grow, it is an excellent offering to the project management community.

azendoo is a different tool, meant for a different project type. While it's a good program on its own, Evernote ultimately had all I needed as a single employee/student is the only person within my workspaces. I did not need to network and as such, I did not find it applicable. Later down the road in a shared office, I might feel differently.

Return on Investment

  • Based on stakeholder feedback, Asana has been an effective way to help them organize their business. It has become a critical tool for their task management and scaling their business processes across the team.

  • I found myself frustrated at some of the costs to upgrade for features and found better outlets.
  • It wasn't totally necessary as I was the only user in the office.
  • It was useful, but it was also another thing to manage, and it was easier to just use Evernote's list feature in the end.
