    My experience in Asana is more than two years, and I really enjoyed the experience and working with my teams, as Asana provides effective communication between us and spread the fun, enthusiasm, and achievement in work faster, as I used conversations to inform the team what I want, follow up, comment on the tasks and inform them that the work is finished.

    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

    • Easy to use by any user (good UX and no installation needed)
    • Easy to create a simple project, add tasks and sub tasks.
    • Different display options, according to the project/tasks type
    • Works great using a web browser, you don't have to install the application

    Planview Clarizen

    • Highly customizable, can develop organization specific workflows, modules, etc.
    • Interface (in most instances) is easy to use. Timesheets, project details, and report modules are fairly easy to navigate and understand.
    • Good comms tools like discussions, group pages, automatic reminders and notifications.

    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

    Planview Clarizen

    • Export: I'm not wild about the export options. We created a custom project plan formatter to turn the ugly export in CSV to a customer facing color coded PDF. It's not super easy to give your customers something pretty to look at (although they do offer PPTs)
    • Gantt Charts: All I want in life is a nice little high level set of milestones to pop into a slide I'm showing to a steering committee. It's just not something the system does. I've just had to screen shot a hard to read gantt from the system or recreate in PPT or Visio. No fun
    • Speed: I am not sure what's going on here but Clarizen can be pretty slow to update small changes to project plans. It's rough when you have a laundry list of changes to make but the system is waiting

    • 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 give my renewal of this product a 9. It's only because we never know what product may come out next and how other factors in our office political environment may cause impact upon this. If I always had my way, this is what we'd settle on as our de facto project management system.

    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.

    It is easy to configure, intuitive. The customization process is in some ways better than Salesforce.com. It has a great UI. It does however depend on how it's implemented.

    The design of it is generally fine, however the ability to data upload people from a spreadsheet is an obvious miss.

    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.

    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).

    It's a good experience overall. Clarizen was useful when needed. It's mostly needed for advice on how to do more sophisticated actions or how to change something that was set up administratively. It's seldom used otherwise. The product consistently works, the documentation is acceptable, and the generally intuitive product is easy enough for most staff to pick up without much issue.

    • 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.

    I like how extensive the capabilities are for Asana. With other softwares it seems there are many things lacking. I feel like Asana is also a very user friendly platform and aesthetically pleasing which is important in a modern office. We have many young people entering our workspace and it is important to have software that is ahead of the times in functionality and efficiency.

    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!

    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.

    • Great customer feedback related to real-time availabilty of project status. We could tailor gant charts to various customers within an organization fairly quickly.
    • Seeing real-time breakdown of costs and time for projects was great. The main page with summary charts was a great way to get information at a glance.
    • Clarizen use definitely helped us stream-line project planning and assisted with identifying bottlenecks.
    • We run many projects in parallel with similar timepoints (pre-, interim-, and post-). The software was pretty straight forward, permitting us to create one project outline then dupiclating it (as a template) for a number of others.
