Asana

Overall, despite its drawbacks, Asana works really well for our team. I think this is an appropriate [tool] for a mid-sized digital marketing firm, like ourselves. A software development team is going to want something more robust, like JIRA. However, if you're just shopping for an easy-to-learn tool that will help you manage responsibilities without relying on email? Asana is perfect. Its flexibility also makes it a great fit for most work-flows in almost any industry. Asana is simple out-of-the-box, but it does have robust functionalities that will allow your team to ramp up if desired.

Egnyte

In a world where Dropbox is king, Egnyte is the hidden gem that I honestly feel works better and has more functionality built in, for a similar (if not cheaper) price point. Any business office that has a traditional server holding eons of files could benefit from Egnyte and their cloud operations, eliminating the need for the hardware. It's great for collaboration between offices and colleagues, and the quick sync feature upon save means that everyone has the latest version of documents at any given time

Pros

  • Asana does organizing and keeping track of tasks really well. It has smart views which allow you to see and customize a smart view for tasks such as recently completed, sort by deadline, sort by assignee etc.
  • Asana does a good job of allowing people to collaborate. The fact that I can comment and ask question on other people's task is very helpful to me. This removes the need of multiple emails in a way that everyone in the organization or part of the team can see it. Being able to add attachment is also really helpful.
  • Asana does an incredible job of setting privacy and securing my tasks such that tasks in one team of the organization cannot be viewed by others. I can decide to make it publis or private. This is very useful as it allows me to keep tasks secure and effective at the same time.

  • Sharing files safely and securely with people at different facilities. It allows for ease of communication without having to limit security potential to do so.
  • Fast updating - within seconds I can drop a file in to a shared Egnyte folder and it be readily available on someone else's computer in the office. This is great for conference calls, it allows all parties to quickly access and review the same material.
  • Salesforce integration - it has been phenomenal seeing how seamlessly Egnyte and Salesforce integrate. To allow these tow systems to ebb and flow so well together saves countless hours of work in our everyday.

Cons

  • If you don't have a champion, the tool won't be used. Just like a shared drive, it has to be kept clean and organized or no one will use it.
  • No Gantt chart functionality.
  • Printing customization doesn't exist - i.e. doesn't show sub-tasks.

  • Sometimes files take forever to upload and could hang up the system.
  • For the Egnyte we use now in our organization, you can't use it offline which can be sometimes annoying if you don't have data. I understand that there has been some improvement to this.
  • If file is also too large, it can stop working and you need to refresh.

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.

Egnyte meets every one of our file-hosting needs, and has an easier overall usability than any other program I've used - There's no question about 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

Trello - great but a bit young. Good integration points. I think it could be a good too to integrate with. Some people enjoy the KanBan type view and Asana doesn't have that currently. Basecamp - more project manager focused but also a good integration point. JIRA - Better for support and bug management than task management on a project/enterprise level

Egynte does not allow for file collaboration when compared to Google Drive. Egynte is a better option for compliant and secure file and asset management. Also for when taking version control into consideration. When organizations are collaborating with external organiations that are not using Google Suite due to organization firewalls, Egynte is a better option

Return on Investment

  • While an ROI study on something like this is rarely done, I'd go with a success/failure comparison. Every project I've used Asana on has been successful (and yes, all other factors were the same). Nearly EVERY project using old tools such as excel, MS project, powerpoint reporting has failed, missed deadlines, mis-communicated scope and task management.
  • From an engineering perspective, developers and managers love it because there's clear visibility into what needs to be done and what is being done and by whom. Getting developers and managers to agree on almost anything is difficult and Asana accomplishes this.

  • Has cut administrative man hours by half.
