Asana

Asana functions particularly well in scenarios with well-established teams with well-established processes and a mature SDLC. The reason is that Asana can be configured to do many, many different things, and be used in many, many different ways, and with that power comes a lot of responsibility to figure out your process before you try and automate it. It's software, not magic.

Gqueues

GQueues ties in very nicely with the principles outlined in David Allen's "Getting Things Done" so if you're a fan, give GQueues a try.I use GQueues both personally and professionally to help keep things in order. I find it easy to modify how I use this service when my needs change. I also use GQueues to keep track of future ideas, websites and books to be read someday and overall goals. It is very customizable to what you need.

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.

  • Provides a choice of reminders, when needed
  • Integrates smoothly into Google calendar
  • Subtasks help organize longer lists
  • Notes are very useful for more detail within each task

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.

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.

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 just evaluated Podio, which has a number of distinct advantages over Asana as far as flexibility and reporting, but fails spectacularly when relied upon to deliver complex task management. AskCow has also been evaluated, and is nearly identical to Asana in most respects, except that the interface is less professional-looking, it seems quite a bit slower, and the documentation just reads weird. The promotional video about running a starfleet shouted "nerd" to me, and not in a really good way. Still, if we had found that first, we might have used it, but porting all of our data from Asana to AskCow just seemed utterly pointless. The differences weren't substantial enough to justify a move, especially when Asana just "feels right" and has offered us such great support. I guess you could say we're still looking, but I don't suspect Asana has anything to worry about with us for awhile.

Our small leadership team tried to use Wrike for a while but I moved back to GQueues after a 3 month trial period. I found the lack of keyboard shortcuts in Wrike made it cumbersome to use.I like the simplicity and use of color in GQueues.

Return on Investment

  • ROI is through the roof. No WAY could we have accomplished the record-breaking production year we have had without Asana. And at just a few hundred a month it's a total bargain. While I will probably always remain on the lookout for something that does what Asana does but also features detailed reporting, I can't complain too much. Asana delivered what I needed it to: much faster completion of individual tasks leading to exponentially increased output across the team (and therefore higher potential sales volume). Fewer hours wasted on work "meta" like sending e-mails back & forth, tracking progress on spreadsheets and so forth means less $$$ spent on wages to achieve greater results. That, in turn, allows for better hourly wages for team members and a much happier team overall.
  • The negative impact of Asana is that our development team is often tied up supporting our essential integrations when they could be building new things instead. Asana is great, but it isn't a total solution and doesn't pretend to be. The cost of making up the difference for a larger, more complex operation like ours is substantial, but it is still more cost-effective than trying to develop a proprietary solution that probably would not be as polished anyway.
