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

Clarizen

Clarizen got the job done with time tracking and expense reports, but it didn't do enough to make our organization continue using it. We ended up switching because the key stakeholders (resource management) were unhappy with its offerings. This might be a good fit for smaller organizations that require less feature and capabilities. Instead, our company switched to OpenAir, which has more robust time tracking, expense reports, and PTO accrual and monitoring programs.

Pros

Asana

  • Timeline and calendar views are extremely useful
  • Templates for repeatable projects
Barbara Carneiro profile photo

Clarizen

  • Time tracking functionality. This was probably the most important aspect of Clarizen for us, and as far as time tracking software goes, it gets the job done.
  • Expense report functionality
  • Backend reports and analytics of time tracking

Cons

Asana

  • Nothing to note, really. We love it!

  • Honestly I am so impressed with what Clarizen can do I haven't had time to stop and think about what it doesn't. If I had to pick something I would say it could provide a graphical interface for simple workflow rules.

Big fan of Asana. There are many free tools out there so difficult to take on more cost when we have free tools we can use

We are a mid-size contract research organization and this software was a bit overkill for our team as a whole. From a project management perspective, I thought the software was spectacular. It definitely helped me organize and visualize what was happening in all of my projects. I liked the layout, interface, and ability to add as many details as I wanted (in a time dependent manner). There was a little bit of a learning curve, but not bad at all. The challenges were on the accounting/finance side and with some of our technical staff. Our accounting and finance folks found it challenging to transfer all of our client, inventory, and procedural information into Clarizen. We did not have an easy way to port information from our current system (Quickbooks) to clarizen. Technical staff pushed back on the daily requirements to accurately manage their assigned tasks. They were, in many cases, reluctant to learn a new on-line system. If you team isn't too tech savvy, roll out of this product will be a challenge.

It's very straightforward to use and doesn't require any training. It's intuitive to use. The menus and buttons are where you'd naturally expect them to be. It's very user friendly

Sometimes it is slow when everyone is entering their time on Fridays or Mondays but other than that we rarely see downtime and maintenance notifications are well in advance.

Honestly I had to ask them for support only one time, so I can't rate them properly. That one time they gave me adequate support and the response came in an adequate time too. Being a tool as easy to use as it is - it's not very frequent that we need support from them.

• Extremely responsive to emails, phone calls etc.
• Will stay on an issue. We have had several issues on custom development side, and they will work on tirelessly until done and push a hot fix just for us
• Don’t seem to be as bureaucratic as Salesforce.com to escalate a case

• We worked with a Project Manager on their side. He was very good about developing a project plan to hit our goal. I think we had weekly or twice weekly calls – very steady cadence over 3 month period.
• Their PM skills were great – kept us on task. For the last week, they sent 2 people on site and they did training for power users. After that a couple of them revisited here

Our trainer, Alex, is exceptional and knows the product really well. I swear he must have wrote the product himself! His manner with training is very easy going, gives you homework that is applicable to what you need to learn and stages it correctly for you. It was a pleasure to be trained by him.

I performed the implementation with our Clarizen provide trainer, who knew the product 100% and it went quickly and without a problem. It was a pleasurable process without the problems other software implementation often encounter. Kudos to the Clarizen team for making this a worry free process for their clients because it is worry free.

Asana Board is really awesome and assigning tasks is ultra easy. I can manage multiple projects without headaches.

Clarizen

There were several others I reviewed that I can no longer remember but none of them compared to Clarizen when it came to flexibility. Many factors sold us on Clarizen but most importantly it was that Clarizen was capable of wrapping itself around our existing processes instead of us changing to to meet the software tool. With that said, we are now looking at changing some of our processes due to the fact that Clarizen is such a powerful tool!
