Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana keeps you on track and helps you prioritize projects and to-dos. I like that you can see what you've previously worked on and accomplished. It's less appropriate for teams who are very active inside their email, like Outlook, and prefer to use the Tasks function already in their email software. Asana is rewarding to teams and helps projects be completed on time

Forecast

Forecast is well suited for tracking schedules, especially if it is only being controlled by a single department. When it comes to using Forecast in a larger ecosystem with more "cooks in the kitchen" it would be helpful to have the software more easily integrated with other software.

Pros

Asana

  • The best tools of Asana are found once we start a project, since the calendar that is integrated into our mail is super easy to use and we use it as a small agenda.
  • The management of projects is incredible, the monitoring provided is one of the best in its category, since it facilitates group work.
  • The creation and assignment of tasks, notifications and that each person can enter to work no matter where it is since it has a good mobile and web interface.

Forecast

  • Schedule visualization. Harvest makes it very easy to see how many hours of work are being assigned to each individual.
  • When used with Harvest it makes for a powerful tool for determining how much time was spent on projects in comparison to their estimates.
  • Data can easily be pulled to make future decisions on project estimates, as well as individual strengths and weaknesses.

Cons

Asana

  • There are not many disadvantages in Asana since its great team has been in charge of improving it constantly, in previous versions it could only be used in English, but now we have several languages to choose from.
  • A point against Asana is that at first it was quite difficult for everyone to adapt to it, it was a long learning process.

Forecast

  • Not as intuitive as its companion software, Harvest. This software takes longer to learn when on-boarding new staff. It is also difficult to view time notes without needing to physically open them up. This could be improved by expanding the "on hover" functionality. Personally, having spent as little time in workflow software is really important, as it gives me more time to code.
  • Because we use this software to plan schedules, items often fall through the cracks. I would like to see some more sophisticated syncing with not only Harvest but also with Asana.
  • Lack of integration with Asana. It would be nice to pull data from forecast and display it in Asana. This would be helpful for understanding how much time I have to spend on a project rather than bounce back and forth between web apps.

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.

It's been great. Outside of the recent system outages recently, they've been super easy to use. I love their mobile app. It makes it so if I have an idea when I'm not at work or near my computer I can open the app and add it to the project and never miss a beat.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

Asana lets you view things in tasks. Trello is more geared toward projects with their board layout. I find Asana to have the best user interface of all project management softwares. It may be missing some functionality (like budgeting and time tracking -- which you can add on with integrations), but I feel that I can actually use it. With the other project management tools I get frustrated by trying to figure them out that I don't use them at all

Forecast

I have not used any other scheduling software other than Forecast. The company selected Forecast because it is used in conjunction with Harvest. The pair of web apps can be used to pull detailed data. This is very important to our agency, and making data-driven decisions is exceptionally important to our agency mission.

Return on Investment

Asana

  • Asana has allowed us to better serve our customers by keeping track of requests and not dropping the ball.
  • Asana has allowed us to be more mindful of each other's times and commitments by allowing us to individually prioritize tasks in our own workflow.
Melissa Miller profile photo

Forecast

  • Forecast does not integrate with other software in our workflow, and it makes it an entire extra step when it doesn't necessarily need to be. This takes extra time away from my actual job.
  • Forecast is powerful when used with Harvest, and allows for powerful data-driven decisions in hiring and project estimates. The more informed we are when making decisions and scoping, the more profitable the company can be.
  • It takes some time to onboard new Employees which can take time away from a profitability or other training.
