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.

DaPulse is far better than other tools that I've used when it comes to ease of use and appearance. It is very user-friendly and can be used for quick at-a-glance updates. It works well for my personal organization of social media posts, blog ideas, brainstorming, and asset tracking. I have not found it particularly helpful for scheduling my days.

Pros

  • Asana allows you to organize your task through a list or through boards.
  • Asana has a great user interface so it's easy for you to locate the projects and the pieces of tasks under each project.
  • Asana's "My Tasks" feature allows you to see all the tasks assigned to you and you can re-arrange them according to priority level.
  • Asana allows me to attach files to each task which allows us to see the progress of the project. It allows you to comment on the current files and the owner of the task can revise it then according to your instructions.

  • Dapulse is as simple of complex as you make it. For example, we have a 'higher tasks' board which makes for a nice at a glance view of what our department is working on. But then personally, I make my own private boards to flesh out complex ways of tracking large extensive projects, but no one else has to be overwhelmed or confused by seeing my own way of staying organized.
  • The layout is visually simple and user friendly. Dapulse gives you a lot of options without "feeling" like there is a lot you need to do. The user interface is very subtle, allowing you to make lots of modifications without cluttering up the space.
  • Anytime we have had a question, we have gotten a direct response. The team is very helpful and present.

Cons

  • I personally have not found anything that I would recommend at this time. However, I have noticed that the older generation of employees struggle with its style where the computer savvy and younger generation thrive. I have no idea how Asana could overcome that obstacle.

  • Monday definitely does have a learning curve. I watched the intro webinar but I was still unclear on how to perform certain tasks. I really had to get in there and play with things. I messed up a few boards the first time I tried it out. I wish there were a more in depth instructional PDF, video, or webinar. There is just so much to know and it is a waste of time when you don't know what you're doing.
  • There is a search on Monday but I still find it difficult, at times, to find files I'm looking for simply by using the search function. I'm not sure how this could be improved but I'm not 100% in favor of this function.

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

If you have a basic understanding of the terms and exist in a project management field it will be very intuitive and easy for you to pick it up and begin setting up workflows and tasks. Someone who doesn't have familiarity with how to plan a project may be confused on how it is intended to be setup.

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).

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

Alternatives Considered

Trello is a very simple board based project management tool. It lacks clear display and organization. On the other hand, Asana provides a much better layout on all devices including mobile phones. It is cross platform and has much more advanced features than Trello. Asana is also better because of the comments, likes and inter-communication options.

We chose Monday because of the chat function and the ability to use numbers, tie into our calendar, and how things were laid out visually.

Return on Investment

  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Successful product rollouts
  • Negative impact: when not utilized correctly, employees can be overwhelmed and not actively participate on Asana.

  • A good impact so far - not sure how we'd measure ROI other than we like it and it's better than a whiteboard and a project manager's notebook.
