Asana

it certainly is a really good tool when it comes to project management because it allows keeping track easily of how [our] timelines being handled, what is the overall progress of a specific task or a product as well as providing tools such as dashboards to see the performance of the team and based on that, making decisions to improve. It has room for improvement when it comes to board view, more specific when trying to organize more than one dimension for example having tasks related to front and back in the same board while trying to keep track of the progress of each one in the same space.

Guru is great for a reference tool. It works great for processes where you can describe in pictures and videos. This works well since everyone learns differently. Guru is less appropriate as a learning management system -- we have a separate LMS. Guru is great for if you need a quick answer to a specific question.

Pros

Asana

  • It helps to handle ongoing and project-based work easily. It defines every work stage, which makes it easier to analyze the areas where things are stuck.
  • The navigation is simple and easy. It provides a list view feature that helps teams and groups to visualize which projects are a priority and work due dates.
  • It is a great tool to enhance team collaboration as it allows group members to organize and manage projects, workflow.

  • Verification - having the ability to set owners, and ensure those owners are responsible for maintaining the information and keeping it current is a HUGE win!
  • Content organization both from a UI and design perspective is great, it helps ensure that no matter how you engage with knowledge management systems you feel comfortable finding the information you need.

Cons

Asana

  • Asana is not really a project management tool, it is good for simple projects only
  • UI has some glitches (doesn't save preferences, etc.)
  • Integration with other tools (Office 365, MS Project)
  • No reminders if the working period you entered is on holidays

  • Difficulty transferring bodies of existing knowledge onto GURU - At first we simply copy-pasted entire google drive documents into GURU cards, but that's super cumbersome, especially because the formatting never transfers perfectly. This increases the amount of time it takes to implement GURU fully.
  • It still feels like we are "setting things up" - Its been about 4 months since we first began implementing GURU and it still feels like there is more work to be done to "set things up." How much time should card verifies spend verifying cards? Who is responsible for which collection of knowledge? Who should and who should not have the ability to create new GURU cards? And so forth.
  • No best practices on organizational theory - A hot topic issue for our support team is how to organize customer support related knowledge. This has made implementation for our support team a bit more difficult.

  • 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

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.

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

Trello's look and feel could be more attractive for the creatives but Asana provides a more "logical" approach which is appealing to the technical types. It feels like Trello provides more degrees of freedom of use which could make collaboration a bit less structured and could make it harder for a new team member to effectively contribute.

Guru

Google Drive is an excellent tool for database and large file sharing but very clunky when needed for quick-hits or answers. Guru had come in and knocked it out of the park. Guru has given us the ability to utilize both successfully throughout multiple teams.

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.

Guru

  • 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.
