Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana is very suitable for creating milestones for app development, web development, marketing projects, lead generation projects, project fulfillment and tracking the progress all the goals and targets of the team. It less appropriate for tracking sales, storing customer details, software development (JIRA is more appropriate for this). I will highly recommend Asana to start-ups as well as corporate teams to organize their workflows very well.

Function Point Productivity Software

FunctionPoint (FP) is great for agencies performing any type of task oriented work. If your workflow cannot be broken down into a set of outlined and easy to define tasks (even if the output of the task is abstract) then FunctionPoint would be difficult to implement. FunctionPoint is fantastic at defining scope in an engagement and forcing those who execute the work to stay within that scope if tasks are well-defined. If your work requires a lot of group collaboration and sharing of tasks, you may struggle with FunctionPoint's inability to share a single task simultaneously

Pros

  • Asana has an easy to use UI. Even if you don't get into the advanced things Asana can do for your project management, it's super easy to use and keeps even the most basic task lists organized.
  • Asana lets you view your tasks in multiple views. You can view all the tasks assigned to you or all the tasks under a certain project (i.e. HR). It also lets you customize the views within each project by due date or by other customizable priorities.
  • Asana's email to task and Google Chrome extensions make getting tasks out of your email and into Asana super easy. I forward a large percentage of my emails directly to Asana so that I can prioritize how I choose to follow up and respond to requests in my inbox.

  • Financial analysis and reporting is one of the tool's primary differentiators
  • Function Point has tremendous support and is very helpful when we have questions or issues
  • Time tracking and project management is also very solid
  • Estimating, statements of work and new project setup is very easy

Cons

  • I wish Asana had more customizable reporting. One of the benefits of using Asana is that you can track tasks and actually use those tasks to build repeatable processes, but decoding reports can be challenging.
  • Asana's printing functionality needs improvement. You can use Asana tasks to create agendas, for example, but it's not possible to print a clean agenda to share with a group who's not on Asana and/or doesn't have their computer at a meeting.

  • While it includes a CRM of sorts, the functionality is not what you would get from a stand alone CRM like Salesforce, or even Hubspot CRM
  • It would be nice if it had more out of the box integrations, specifically for marketing automation platforms
  • While it is easy to use, it requires a lot of training and there is definitely a learning curve

Likelihood to Renew

Asana10.0
Based on 32 answers
I am using Asana at the free level tier and have applied it to my own task tracking and planning. My other stakeholders who have implemented Asana would rate the renew question much higher as it is critical to their business. That being said, I am a bigger fan of LiquidPlanner (paid) and Trello (free).

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 is a very simple board based project management tool. It lacks clear display and organization. On the other hand, Asana provides a much better layout on all devices including mobile phones. It is cross platform and has much more advanced features than Trello. Asana is also better because of the comments, likes and inter-communication options.

We previously used Workamajig and have found Function Point to be superior in every way. Function Point is mobile friendly, web-based, does not use flash and is much more intuitive than Workamajig. We are able to much more easily get the data we need from the system and our financial reporting has never been better.

Return on Investment

  • I definitely feel more organized and more effective when I'm assigned a task via Asana. It makes it easier to keep track of than email. I also work off-location from the rest of the team.

  • Our team is more efficient at tracking time, and we are much more able to track resources and profitability
  • Our accounting manager is able to use Quick Books in a much more efficient manner than previously
