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.

Lifesize Video Conferencing

It is very well suited for smaller companies that work with an enterprise as it has easy integration with most popular enterprise software. It is also well suited for those who are looking for very secure software as one of the strengths of Lifesize Video Conferencing is encryption, every conversation is encrypted by software powered by IBM.

Pros

  • Cross-team communication is always a challenge, but Asana helps make information transparent and accessible to all members of the team.
  • It's easy to share with individuals outside of the organization and still control the flow of information.
  • Being able to link in other design resources like InVision prototypes is a huge time saver.
  • Integrating with Slack makes much of our necessary communication automatic.
Kirk Brote profile photo
  • Easy to use interface.
  • Interoperability - standards based (SIP, h.323, etc).
  • Ability to connect from outside of the corporate network with Lifesize Cloud.

Cons

  • Nothing to note, really. We love it!
Barbara Carneiro profile photo
  • Quality of stream using Lifesize Cloud (audio, video easily garbled).
  • No hybrid implementation - unable to use a internet connection for external participants and internal WAN connections for remote offices.
  • Cost of Lifesize units, with no software based units (Zoom room or equivalent).

I love being able to have easy access to a tool that I enjoy using and works for me. I have previewed this the Asana app, which is a useful feature for people on the go. But currently I use it most on desktop for quick access to all my projects and their current status.

Other than the HIPAA compliance, we have no compelling reason to retain LifeSize when we can already pay for similar services included with our UCaaS service. Our UCaaS vendor, Fuze, includes video conferencing with the VoIP services via single, integrated client software package. Additional limitations include minimal implementation assistance, training service, training materials and assistance driving internal adoption. Issues with slow speed for desktop sharing and audio quality make the technical aspects of Lifesize inferior to competitors.

We rolled out Lifesize with minimal instructions and high adoption. The touchpad on the Phone 2 is solid from a usability perspective. The touchpad on the Phone 2 allows us to remove remotes. The whole Icon experience is so much better than the color multi-function buttons on the room units (which were confusing to people). Thankfully the room units also work well with the Phone 2.

Since we are an educational institution we not only have scheduled classes which must be available, but we have staff members in a variety of areas ranging from recruiting and admissions to advancement and the President's office who need to connect with students, alumni and other interest groups, often at odd hours. I have not, since using Lifesize had anyone complain of not being able to connect

We chose Lifesize because we are in a consortium with several other small universities. Each university has its own LMS and professors and IT departments each either provide or allow users to use additional tools or programs. Additionally, as our staff members use Lifesize to communicate with those outside our system we must have a tool that is capable of integration with what is being used by our faculty and staff as well as those they interact with in the course of their academic business.

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).

The setup of the software itself was not all that bad. There were some permissions problems, but that is mainly due to our security. Setting up cameras took a very long time and delayed the use of the product. It took about 30 minutes per conference room. But once everything is up and ready, it is pretty reliable.

Alternatives Considered

Basecamp is a great tool but looks a bit juvenile next to Asana. Basecamp treated us very well but Asana is a perfect fit for us now. It's easy to use and clients use it, which is a big win. Teamwork was extremely complex and cluttered. Something that made is really hard for my team and clients to embrace. We were with Teamwork for one month, then we moved to Asana!

Lifesize has expanded its cloud video conferencing and I foresee it going that direction instead of room to room hardware. We currently have no plan to add or upgrade any of our in room systems but having the ability to connect room to cloud or cloud to cloud is an excellent feature from Lifesize.

Return on Investment

  • The best tool I have used for project management
  • ROI hit in few months, Productivity alot increased
Jestin Sebastian profile photo
  • We have not measured the system in terms of ROI, the biggest positive impact is being able to have live video meetings across multiple facilities
  • The mobile app works well if your traveling and need to join a conference.
  • I don't really have any negative feedback, it was frustrating in the beginning for users when they were learning how to use the system.
  • Users dropping out of a conference when they have connectivity issues gives the main system a bad wrap.
