    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.

    MindManager

    This is the single best tool to help visual learners express themselves on complex matters in my opinion. I have tried and used other programs that have certain elements, but this is far and away from the best option for me. The more complex the problem, the more that using this pays off. I tend to start in almost brainstorming mode and then move to group items and either arrange them in terms of process flow or simply organizationally.

    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

    MindManager

    • Great to segment things out (projects, organizational charts, processes, workloads, etc) and gives you a full picture of the job.
    • It is user friendly, simple to use, and powerful.
    • MS Office and Teams integration is great. Allows for easy collaboration.
    • Great GUI and visuals
    • Excellent method for project planning and brainstorming

    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

    MindManager

    • I find formatting a challenge. Example, make all the boxes the same format and fonts so when you add a box, it understands the format of the top level box.
    • I have played around with some of the templates but find creating my own each time is better route. The project plan template is very good but I find myself deleting boxes and again, takes more time than creating a new map every time.
    • I try to get colleagues to use MM but they are intimidated by the UI. I am really comfortable with it but to them it can look more complex than it really is.

    • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.

    I feel the main issues of the old Mindjet seem to be gone with the
    Corel purchase. With the huge advance of sharing via browser HTML even 1
    user can affect many. And, actually, using MM kind of forced my rigid
    brain to rethink how I categorize and classify information/projects.
    The
    idea of paying $69USD for an annual cost is more than fair and a great
    model for Corel/Mindjet to keep rolling out improvements!

    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.

    MindManager is very intuitive. The user interface is not cluttered and the ribbon icons are easy to understand. Several excellent "how-to" videos are available on the MindManager site as well as on YouTube. MindManager starts quickly and the user interface is very responsive. Launching other programs from MindManager such as Excel is very fast and issue free. The browsing feature is lightning fast. The drag-and-drop capability is also very fast and reliable.

    The application is quick and responsive. We are able to produce mindmaps and reports with ease. The program is not complicated at all and integrates well with software and programs like Microsoft Outlook and Teams, which we truly appreciate.

    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 have called technical support a few times. During the COVID Crisis, I called a few times repeatedly due to a rush request. The technical support guy called me back in minutes. He somehow knew that I had called repeatedly and wanted to make sure my issue was resolved immediately

    The videos are not well categorized...I had to do a bit of digging to get what I wanted and many videos on older versions. If Mindjet was to improve the titles used that would help.

    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.

    Both are equally good. Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect is used to get the models in a more technical format in comparison to the MindManager. MindManager is easier to use in comparison to Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect. MindManager makes collaboration easy and can be understood by a layman and does not need to have specific software training.

    A team can collaborate on the same project but cannot create a shared project file. It would be helpful for that feature to be added.

    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

    MindManager

    • When scope planning before I was introduced to this tool, I needed to make one master Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for the entire project and move on. With MindMapper, I typically generate about 20 WBS-like charts throughout the project, which encouraged conversation with staff members. The major key in such ease of use has been some well thought out and very intuitive keystroke planning that allows me to keep up with the free flow of ideas.
    • This software's cross-functional capability allowed 10 engineers to create their projects directly within their own environment without use of a virtual machine.
