Frontify

It depends on what the colleagues needs are. I think it is GREAT for visual brand management, but it does not (or I have not noticed) have the ability to really have brand descriptions and verbiage of different length (50, 100, 250 words, etc) or other written instructions for how to write, who should have a voice, how social media is handled, etc.

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.

Cons

  • I hate that Asana does not have time keeping functionality inbuilt. I use Asana with lot of contractors and I would love if there was a time keeping function.
  • Asana sends me a lot of notifications. Sometimes it is super helpful but often I opt out of notifications. I would love to see if Asana can optimize or change the notification frequency in a unique way.
  • Asana does not allow me to chat if the other user or team members are online. I would love to have that feature instead of just commenting.

  • I believe having an agency option would be great so that one could manage and build multiple brands for multiple clients.
  • Having sections for voice and personality would be great.
  • The ability to export a brand document to a .PDF to share with partners.

I just can't see us getting it off of Asana any time soon, despite the many headaches it has caused us. We have too much data in there, too much time & training invested into it, too much at stake to move. If we were just starting out today, fresh, I don't know for certain that I would absolutely go the same direction, but I *think* I still would. I just haven't seen anything better yet. Maybe if Podio's support staff hadn't treated me like a worthless nuisance to them, I might feel differently, but the fact is that their task management is simply inferior to Asana's. That can't be denied, and in fact Podio said it themselves: "Tasks are a simple function. They cannot be customized. Tasks in Podio can be used for quick to-do's for you and your team members." In our operation, however, prompt task completion is a big deal; one task can't be completed until another one is done first, and closing the gaps between those tasks is critical in meeting deadlines and servicing our customers. Asana gets us there, the others don't.

Frontify is very easy to use and makes updating information a breeze. Frontify acts a central location to house assets and information for easy sharing. You can plug and play information and even white label the guide if desired

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

Asana is a much more seamless process, much more intuitive, and better UI. My complaint with Basecamp is that it does not seem well organized - the interface is not as intuitive and in the past, it has overwhelmed my former teammates. To the point where they do not actively login to Basecamp at all

OpenBrand.com is not quite as visually appealing as Frontify, but it would be worth investigating if you are looking for brand management. I frequently use them in combination with each other and have a more appealing pricing structure.

  • For a highly visual brand with a small team, I believe the time saved and the tools offered would make the plus plan attractive. I do not know that I would recommend the larger plans to my clients.
