My experience in Asana is more than two years, and I really enjoyed the experience and working with my teams, as Asana provides effective communication between us and spread the fun, enthusiasm, and achievement in work faster, as I used conversations to inform the team what I want, follow up, comment on the tasks and inform them that the work is finished.

Guru is well suited for large teams with ever-evolving products and initiatives. If there are new hires trying to ramp Guru is a great resource for learning and sharing tribal knowledge from and with colleagues. Guru is very helpful for self-sourcing answers to questions and for continuous learning within an organization.

Cons
Asana
  • Some users might find the user interface a bit dull and un inspired
  • We found the way to use multiple workspaces a bit confusing
  • It takes quite a bit of planning to build a well organized workspace in order not to have way too many projects and tasks all over the place

  • Engagement with engineering teams is still an area for improvement, we are unable to get our engineering team to adopt the tool as a means for their own knowledge management product because it does not offer the same functionally such as hosting and revision control - like that of GitHub.
  • Using Guru to replace our current wiki (Confluence), we are in need of some other tools such as templates and better import functionality. Transferring existing content from Confluence to Guru was a very hands on and time consuming process.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

Usability
Asana
It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Support Rating
Asana
I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

I never actually required contacting the Guru support team. That could be because creating new Guru cards or editing existing ones was very intuitive. One issue I did have was that when it came time to export all of the content in Guru it was very difficult and cumbersome so I would recommend making that an easier, cleaner process.

Alternatives Considered
Asana
I like how extensive the capabilities are for Asana. With other softwares it seems there are many things lacking. I feel like Asana is also a very user friendly platform and aesthetically pleasing which is important in a modern office. We have many young people entering our workspace and it is important to have software that is ahead of the times in functionality and efficiency.

Honestly, Google Drive does not stack up against GURU, but it is what we were previously using to organize internal knowledge. If your organization is at 50+ people, you need an actual tool to help organize internal knowledge. Everyone will be thankful that its not just a google document somewhere in Google Drive

Return on Investment
Asana
  • Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines.
  • Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running.
  • Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving.

  • Our ticket resolution times went from over 8 hours to just over 2 hours.
  • We no longer have a continuous conversation between support and developers allowing developers to focus on developing.
  • Having the same information across teams has proven helpful too.
