Asana

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

There are no major negatives to Evernote's services. They give lot of useful features to all of their users [without] any ad revenue. Evernote is an internet icon that is a major content storage platform both online and offline. Evernote's strength is its stability, powerful note creation and collaboration tools. It's one of best business tools helping and organizing your content online or offline.

Pros

  • Simplicity of user interface without neglecting functionality
  • Timeline and calendar views are extremely useful
  • Templates for repeatable projects
Barbara Carneiro profile photo
  • To do lists, both at a micro and macro level. Any note can have a to do list in it, and you can have a list of time-sorted reminders, each one of which points to a specific note. Hard to talk about but very easy to do.
  • Keeping files in context with other information. For example, we're working on a project with a client and we've got an RFP from the client, a proposal from us, and a power point that the client saw. I've got all those in a file along with my list of things to do. Whenever we talk about this project, I pull up the note and have everything I need. In theory I can do all this in Salesforce, but Evernote is so much faster. And with the SF connector, it is both fast like Evernote and part of SF.
  • Snapping photos of paper to add to notes. I have almost no paper in my life because of this. Clients hand me printouts of things, I snap a photo and add to the Evernote, and hand the paper back to the client. I go to get my oil changed, I snap a picture of the paperwork and put it in an Evernote. Can't remember last time I got my Sienna's oil changed? Just search Evernote for Sienna. I've also been known to snap photos of presentations people are giving, add them to an Evernote and then I can see the slide anytime.
  • Fast, easy search. Evernote search works really well, and even manages to search images if they're full of text. (That part isn't perfect, but come on.) Compared to any CRM with rather rigid search requirements, evernote feels flexible and almost mind-reading in comparison.
  • Available on any device.

Cons

  • Nothing to note, really. We love it!
Barbara Carneiro profile photo
  • The presentation mode is new, and has lots of potential. I'd like to see the ability to modify notes while in presentation mode. I think when that is available, I'll give up power point entirely. I admit this isn't a sacrifice on my part, since I've never been much of a ppt user.
  • I honestly can't think of anything else.

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 can't really imagine how much they'd have to charge me to make me quit Evernote. I can't really think of any technology that has changed my life as much without going back to email in the 90s, or the introduction of the iPhone. I know I sound ridiculous, but it would be really tough for me to live without it. If I were forced to choose between my smart phone (and keep in mind that I get lost in my driveway) and my Evernote, I'd probably choose my Evernote.

Lots of useful features, if you can learn how to use them and actually implement it across enough of the team to adapt it

Generally issues are by connectivity and not Evernote availability but I have had issues in the past with cross-client consistency of data which Evernote Support has ID'd as bugs that are still unresolved as far as I know

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

We had used Mavenlink in other departments but for the Design, Product Development and R&D teams, Asana made much more sense and we have not regretted the switch for them. The organization is key when forming ideas and doing a bunch of research, it is difficult to keep all of these things organized. This was our main goal when we chose Asana, we had heard good things and wanted those benefits for our team.

Microsoft OneNote is probably the closest competitor in terms of functionality. However, I so much detest Microsoft products that I would have zero interest in even trying OneNote. I have no reason to try them. If my employer forced me to use OneNote, I wouldn't do it. I would run Evernote on my own device happily.
