Asana

Asana functions particularly well in scenarios with well-established teams with well-established processes and a mature SDLC. The reason is that Asana can be configured to do many, many different things, and be used in many, many different ways, and with that power comes a lot of responsibility to figure out your process before you try and automate it. It's software, not magic.

Citrix ShareFile

ShareFile is absolutely needed for a company that uses large file documents. Microsoft Office will limit the size of the documents being sent, and when you work in a marketing company where design files are being sent that are frequently going to be hitting that limit, Sharefile is necessary. ShareFile is less suited for those companies that have a cloud server where documents can be accessed anywhere at anytime. Also, if you are a company that is rarely sharing large files with each other or clients, this is not really needed.

Pros

  • Simplicity of user interface without neglecting functionality
  • Timeline and calendar views are extremely useful
  • Templates for repeatable projects

  • They have a very easy integrated plug in on outlook that makes it very easy to use along with an Outlook account
  • It can hold larger files, so there isn't a size issue with sending files
  • confidence in who is opening the documents

Cons

  • It's not that easy to change or update the name of the title. You need to click the arrow down button beside the title to edit. I believe it should be easier like just click on the current title and change it.
  • I would like Asana to put a feature like Facebook and LinkedIn where you know who's online and who's not online. Because if the person-in-charge is online you can communicate with him real time rather than waiting for him to respond later on.
  • I would be glad too if they add a voice call or video call feature so that if you have concerns and the person you would like to talk to is online you can speak with him right away. Some comments or revisions just needs to be explained through a call to eliminate misunderstandings.

  • The desktop application on Windows is subpar. I usually opt to use the web interface to interact with Sharefile.
  • The Sync tool makes it difficult to see which files are on your computer only vs. Sharefile. Occasionally files and folders can accidentally be deleted by a novice user and then customer support has to get involved to fix it.
  • Live, collaborative editing from the software could be much better. It uses Office 365 and is not streamlined or simple to use.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

I give it a 10 for an overall rating for several reasons.1. Technical Support is one of the best around. I get immediate help and resolution to any issue I have faced.2. The product is simple to use and provides businesses with amazing features to streamline the sharing of large files.3. The product is easy to deploy and manage. As an IT Manager, it is important to have control over your data.

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 is a much more seamless process, much more intuitive, and better UI. My complaint with Basecamp is that it does not seem well organized - the interface is not as intuitive and in the past, it has overwhelmed my former teammates. To the point where they do not actively login to Basecamp at all

Sharefile seemed to be better suited for secure filing storage and syncing across multiple platforms such as Windows and Apple.

  • Much easier to use and more efficient than our old cloud system.
  • Sharefile Sync makes saving and syncing files as effortless as saving documents to your desktop.
  • Sharefile Outlook plug in solves another important and costly issue by allowing us to send and request large files by email.
