Considered Both Products
Asana
Chose Asana
Cost and the lowest ramp-up time is always factored in while still meeting the needs of a very fast-paced environment. Asana has more capability than Trello or ClickUp and is a more visual tool than JIRA.
Chose Asana
Asana generally takes less time to set up, so for my small team that has limited experience working with project management tools, Asana is great. We didn't need anything with lots of bells and whistles so Asana works well. ClickUp takes much more time to set up initially, but …
Chose Asana
Side by side with the other two Asana by far beats monday.com and is comparable and slightly better than ClickUp. Monday is completely browser-based and is hard to navigate and figure out how to set up. Asana and ClickUp are the exact opposite. Both are easy to set up and …
ClickUp
Chose ClickUp
Asana, last time we checked, was too simple and not robust enough to use as a resource manager. Trello is too simple. Airtable has too much focus on the spreadsheet capabilities. ClickUp is a good cross between Airtable, Asana, and Trello
Chose ClickUp
The main pain point I had with Asana was the manual work required to plan my days effectively. The interface focuses more on individual tasks and their details, rather than providing that comprehensive bird's-eye view I was looking for. While Asana provides different project …
Chose ClickUp
For us, ClickUp was the happy medium between the extensive features offered by Jira (but at an exorbitant cost) and the more modern feel of something like Asana and Trello but with fewer features. ClickUp has really taken all the best features from all these apps and put it …
Chose ClickUp
It is much more intuitive and shows more dev-driven tasks to create stories. Also, the fact that ClickUp enables the system to save multiple files from online to locally uploaded files, and GitLab is the way to archive them. Maybe Asana has new features, but I'm sure Clickup is …
Chose ClickUp
From the above 2 applications ClickUp fared better because its free to use, has a design that stimulates task management and collaboration, but majorly our team liked using ClickUp instead of Notion or Asana. It is important that our team is comfortable using a software that's …
Chose ClickUp
We chose ClickUp over Asana primarily for the docs. With Asana, it is really limiting to not be able to jump into docs natively within the platform. We value documentation and therefore really appreciate being able to easily add docs to everything we do. Whether a task or a …
Chose ClickUp
Notes - easy to use... everything you need to do is type into the chat box. everything is auto saved.Checklists - usually had to use third party software to run that, like Google Forms or Forms from office 365Excel - the usage of this tool has been drastically reduced, kept for …
Chose ClickUp
We have used clickup over Jira beacuse we have documented all the domain details as per topic and it was easy to manage in the clickup. Also, we are able to manage milestones in clickup very easily. UI for labels is far better in clickup then Jira. That's why we used clickup …
Chose ClickUp
ClickUp had many of the same features of the competition but it came it at a lower price. It also seems more nimble in the development of new features.
Chose ClickUp
ClickUp has the friendliest user interface of any of the other project management apps I've used before. It isn't too overwhelming for brand new users and the board views are clean. We often screen share ClickUp to show where projects stand. We like the fact that each user can …
Chose ClickUp
They are all very similar, but ClickUp was easier to use. The UX design is great, everything falls into place. I didn’t have to train anyone from the team on how to use it. They easily understood how it works. It’s simple, clear and straightforward. Every move you make, it’s …
Chose ClickUp
Pricing. They simply can’t be beaten for what they offer.
Chose ClickUp
ClickUp's hierarchy and customizability is what led us to use ClickUp. The others cannot complete on this feature.
Chose ClickUp
ClickUp is more flexible and easy to make work for your needs, but if you have a custom or more flexible approach on Agile Methodology. Otherwise, I would recommend a more strict tool like Pivotal Tracker.
Chose ClickUp
I selected ClickUp over all of these due to the extensive functionality available. Most would do this well of that well, but nothing would fully cover all I was seeking to do in one platform, or if it did, would be missing something, such as custom fields or sub-tasks or …
Chose ClickUp
Easy to use similiar to set up and get going.
Chose ClickUp
We have compared different parameters such as usability, functionalities, cost, learning curve. And in the ended opted in for ClickUp due to a higher match with our requests.
Chose ClickUp
We selected ClickUp firstly for the ease of use of the platform. It was very simple and easy to understand. We also liked how ClickUp offered "Guest" seats for free so we could allow many employees to only view information in ClickUp without having to pay for a full license. …
Chose ClickUp
ClickUp offers more flexibility and customization, and the ability to share tasks and items between people and projects.
Chose ClickUp
ClickUp's learning curve is very low vs. other tools, but it's only suitable if you need some complexity in your task organisation. If it's only for a simple list with tasks, there are other solutions to look at.
Chose ClickUp
The other tools are much more static in nature and not very use friendly when it comes to customisation. ClickUp offers a suite of customisation tools and Clickapps which help with whatever needs getting done in terms of forms,fields,etc. Therefore, ClickUp can be customised to …
Chose ClickUp
I’m a big believer in the executive team at clickup. I don’t think any other productivity company out there has a bigger BHAG than the CEO of clickup.

So, with that being said, I know they will continue to strive to be better and better and help people save more and more of our …
Chose ClickUp
ClickUp had far more features and was easier to use than any of the other platforms we evaluated. It continues to "stand the test of time" as our organization rolls out new ideas for project management. It's flexibility and ease of use keeps it ahead of the game. ClickUp's …

Asana
Asana fixed team issues like project transparency and communication, improved team performance, and enhanced office and mobile productivity. Upper management can solve project management issues quickly, and new hires can use the tool immediately. Asana's surveys simplify research and data collection. Its free trial, free plan, or paid SaaS subscription gives small and large teams the tools and centralized console to work through project tasks efficiently. Due to its complexity, Asana can be overwhelming at first.

ClickUp
As a CRM tool, ClickUp fit like a charm, due to it's easy to customize nature, made possible to have the CRM setup done in a week at nearly zero cost, required some programing knowledge from my end, but I made it possible. As a inventory management, we are now capable of controling our inventory deep down to every detail we feel necessary. As a task management tool, of course, it's the basic nature of ClickUp, but now we no longer need to poke each other shoulder and ask about the ongoing status of any given task, we open the dashboard and everything is there. We now use this time to interact more and do other stuff.

Cons
Asana
  • Asana is not really a project management tool, it is good for simple projects only
  • UI has some glitches (doesn't save preferences, etc.)
  • Integration with other tools (Office 365, MS Project)
  • No reminders if the working period you entered is on holidays

ClickUp
  • The mobile app is confusing to use and does not represent a mobile version of the web app.
  • Some new features are included with the current plan and some you have to pay extra for.
  • Learning curve can be a bit much for non-digital native users.

We're very pleased with how the system works in general. For over a year we've barely ever had any problems with ClickUp and there might have only been one or two times when it wasn't operational for us due to a global emergency. Moreover, when we had a problem once with renewing our licenses we've been contacted directly by our account manager and taken care of in a very professional way (with a due refund as well). The exceptional customer service makes us firmly believe that ClickUp is just the right tool for us.

Usability
Asana
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.

ClickUp
Far easier to use than any other PM tool. ClickUp is incredibly intuitive and had us saving time and energy within the first week of implementation. In my opinion, PM software should make it easier to focus on the deliverables - it shouldn't take all your time and energy to learn how to use the tool in the first place. ClickUp is a user-friendly tool that actually helps us focus on what's important.

For over a year ClickUp was unavailable to us just twice for a couple of hours. I would say for a system this big and working globally that was a minor issue. They managed to fix all the issues within a couple hours and then it was back up and running perfectly fine.

I understand that it's a beast and does a lot of things, which is probably why it's laggy. But I do find it takes longer than I'd like to load, and if I am sending a complex document to a client or team member they aren't quite sure if they're getting the right thing at first. This is actually a pretty significant problem - my biggest beef with ClickUp.

Support Rating
Asana
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).

I started using ClickUp when it was what most would consider a baby company. There were the occasional bugs that made working in ClickUp a little bit of a headache, but the support feature allowed me to chat with a real persona and communicate my issues. I would always get prompt support and someone willing to really help me, not just point me to FAQ pages. Not feeling like a number really makes a difference.

There are multiple guides on literally all of the functions you can find within the system, therefore it's easy to learn anything you'd really like to use, starting from project and people management, down to Gantts, mind maps, time tracking, inviting Clients as guests to work with you on the projects and so much more.

Using ClickUp is fairly easy. There are multiple guides on how to use all of the functions in the system. An organization wanting to start working with ClickUp should simply try it out and see how it would like to adapt its workflow to the possibilities the system gives the users.

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.

We chose ClickUp over Asana primarily for the docs. With Asana, it is really limiting to not be able to jump into docs natively within the platform. We value documentation and therefore really appreciate being able to easily add docs to everything we do. Whether a task or a list, this is a game changer ClickUp introduced early. In addition, Asana is nowhere as fast at providing a wide range of features. ClickUp open sourced their product backlog allowing the community to vote which is a huge plus

Scaling with ClickUp is superb. If you create a workflow best suited for your organization then it's all about creating new accounts and teaching the new employees the workflow you're using. It's that simple. There is no black magic when it comes to Clickup.
