    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.

    Coordinating content, events, and information to a diverse audience is a strength of the platform Differentiating between social media platforms in terms of system requirements and image guidelines is a second strength Some media can be difficult to manipulate, especially when the image or media is external (novice creatives will be guided through the best treatments).
    Rob Liddell | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Asana

    • Easy to use by any user (good UX and no installation needed)
    • Easy to create a simple project, add tasks and sub tasks.
    • Different display options, according to the project/tasks type
    • Works great using a web browser, you don't have to install the application

    Hootsuite

    • Allows the same posts to be placed on multiple sites
    • Schedules posts
    • Crops photos according to each platform
    • Provides a calendar layout
    • The option to shorten links... can you make it so the shortened links are visible in the viewer prior to scheduling the post?
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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
    Louis Schietekat | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Hootsuite

    • The arbitrary limit of 5 scheduled posts is very frustrating. This limit used to be higher and it seems they lowered it just to get more money
    • Limit on number of accounts that can be hooked up on the free platform
    • Sometimes the stream moves very quickly and there is no way that I have found to halt it so that I can read something before it scrolls off... this is mostly for my Home Twitter stream that tracks posts by those I follow

    At this time we are satisfied that Hootsuite offers the most of what we are looking for at the most reasonable price point. As the social media landscape and monitoring/scheduling software changes, so do our needs. We re-evaluate our tools semi-annually or as new tools emerge onto the market. If we find at any point that we aren't gaining an advantage, then we are open to switching products.

    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.

    The layout of horizontal columns for each stream or search is a very cumbersome way to display information. There isn't an easy way to sort, filter, or otherwise re-organize the streams to limit the current view to relevancy. This is one of the primary reasons why we plan to move to another platform.

    Any outages are communicated in advance and have not been a problem. We let our clients know based on communications from HootSuite.Since we operate 24/7 with multiple shifts, planned outages can interfere with our operations, but we can always work around it.

    Hootsuite makes passing on articles from the web very easy- when it works! I have had a number of gliches with Chrome where it does not open properly and the solution (after some toing and froing with support) was to uninstall and reinstall. The support staff are always very helpful (which is great!) but the gliches..... well, they suck when you are already busy!

    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 haven't had to use support for Hootsuite at all, but from what I hear, their functionality is incredible! I hope I never have to use support, but it's good to know that they're efficient at their job, and it is one of the reasons why I love Hootsuite so much.

    Would rate it a 10. We received two hours of online training and it was of very high-quality. HootSuite also offers HootSuite University which is an extremely comprehensive training portal with self-paced quizzes, training webinars and videos, best-practice papers, product certification, and access to a network of external experts. This is a fantastic resource.

    One person of the organization must take the time to understand the product throughly. Next that person should work with the Hootsuite team to maximize the architecture of your platform and mitigate any problems that may crop up. Also, if a team members voices a concern or is having a problem roll your sleeves up and help them if not it can kill support for the product and end any chances of a renewal. Lastly, set aside enough time to allow for training and refresher training. Solve all problems ambiguity can not be permitted

    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, it's been years since I used anything but Hootsuite. About five years ago, I did a bit of a vendor analysis and concluded that for my needs (which are primarily high-volume, high number of social media accounts), Hootsuite is the most cost-efficient option. However, let's face it: That's because my monthly fee is a lower, grandfathered rate.

    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.
    Kristi Porter | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Hootsuite

    • I have been able to evaluate which posts, in general, do well and figure out what types of posts to make (content)
    • It's been harder however to compare on social medial platform compared to another because it's hard to duplicate a post with a new owly (I think you used to be able to) but more so, you also can't assign it a custom owly link so I can see at a glance which owly link was associated with what platform.
