Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana keeps you on track and helps you prioritize projects and to-dos. I like that you can see what you've previously worked on and accomplished. It's less appropriate for teams who are very active inside their email, like Outlook, and prefer to use the Tasks function already in their email software. Asana is rewarding to teams and helps projects be completed on time

You can tell from the CEO and all staff that this is a very competent company that wants you to succeed with integrity. There is a strong
support and services team that works collaboratively with us to make
sure we are always getting what we need. They provide
24x7 emergency support, online ticket support, email support, a client
community, and the ability to call and talk to the same account manager or
community consultant every time (I even have Mariano's skype and he replies on weekends!). They recently launched a client community - so they are now even practicing what they preach. Our questions in the client community are always answered quickly.

Pros

Asana

  • Fast: Unlike other PM platforms I've used, Asana is very fast. In fact, it's so fast that when you leave a comment on a task, anyone else looking at that task at the same time will actually see updates as you type. You can easily move tasks into different projects by dragging and dropping. There is no lag time between opening new projects and tasks. Everything seems to load instantaneously.
  • Intuitive: Asana doesn't have a steep learning curve. The default view is list-based. Your team will have no problem learning how to add new tasks, use the WYSIWYG editor, or assign tasks. Use familiar commands like "@" to tag a follower on a task.
  • Keyboard shortcuts: The keyboard shortcuts are incredibly helpful. Simply press enter to enter a new task, tab+backspace to delete, use familiar copy/paste and undo commands, and much more. PMs with a lot to juggle will appreciate the shortcuts.
  • My Tasks: The "my tasks" view provides a single, centralized location for you to see everything on your plate. Use section headings and drag and drop tasks to re-order. I use this to prioritize my week. It helps me focus on what's really important.
  • Searchability: The search in Asana is intuitive. Our task backlog dates back three years, and I can still almost always find what I'm looking for via a simple keyword search. Projects are archived, not deleted, so I always feel like my historical information is safe.
  • Flexibility: Projects can be set up as a waterfall/list view or as kanban. This product should work well for teams with different styles.
  • Integrations: Asana integrates with everything. There's a great Slack integration, but my favorite is the Instagantt integration. Using Instagantt in tandem with asana is a super easy way to create attractive digital project calendars.

  • A flexible, configurable platform that can be managed and updated without a requirement for technical skills.
  • Drag and drop, point and click update site administration.
  • A platform that is updated frequently with new features and capabilities (about once a month).
  • A broad, comprehensive feature set.
  • A platform that works in multiple languages.
  • Consulting before and during development phase. Ongoing consulting and strategic planning after product launch.
  • Product roadmapping is clear and well thought out. Good communication about what is coming and how it can be used in our community.
  • Senior management is very accessible and knowledgeable about the product and the industry. Attends and contributes to strategy conversations.

Cons

Asana

  • If you don't have a champion, the tool won't be used. Just like a shared drive, it has to be kept clean and organized or no one will use it.
  • No Gantt chart functionality.
  • Printing customization doesn't exist - i.e. doesn't show sub-tasks.

  • Not much to say in this section. Anything that the product doesn't currently do is quickly identified and prioritized appropriately on their road map.
  • Chat room functionality doesn't exist yet, but has been placed on roadmap.
  • Instant messaging between users doesn't exist yet, but is roadmapped.
  • We're unable to run a couple of specific reports, based on what's available in the reporting tool. There's a workaround that our community administrator can perform that is a little more time consuming.

Big fan of Asana. There are many free tools out there so difficult to take on more cost when we have free tools we can use

From the first conversation and beyond, it has been a pleasure working with Small World Labs. Their staff are genuinely interested in understanding our business and our goals, and actively make recommendation on continued improvement and long-term strategy. All of their staff demonstrate a clear understanding of the product and when to expect new features. Furthermore, their CEO, Michael Wilson, is more than competent and has proven to be an industry expert. He understands both the technical side and the community strategy side of the business. In fact, we have already initiated a project to build a second community with Small World Labs for a separate business unit

It's been great. Outside of the recent system outages recently, they've been super easy to use. I love their mobile app. It makes it so if I have an idea when I'm not at work or near my computer I can open the app and add it to the project and never miss a beat.

Have never needed to get in touch with the support on Asana and I think that's more than most SaaS companies can say. I'm sure they get enquiries from enterprise clients but for a small-to-medium business like us, it's perfect and no additional support has been needed.Asana also has a brilliant user forum and blogs explaining everything you might have a question on.

The people at Small World Labs are very accessible. I can email, open a ticket, or call and they are there. I'd also point out that senior management is quite available too. We frequently have talks about potential strategies and new things we might be doing, which is great. I think the whole organization genuinely likes what they do and likes helping us succeed.

In-person training is more ad-hoc based on if they are traveling to you or you are going to visit them. I imagine that if I paid for in-person training that it would be set up as well, but I've just used the standard training that comes with the initial set up and ongoing support.

We had staff turnover at our own organization during the implementation. We were able to get the community up and live in a good timeframe even though that happened and we had to switch some people around for managing the project on our side.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

Trello - great but a bit young. Good integration points. I think it could be a good too to integrate with. Some people enjoy the KanBan type view and Asana doesn't have that currently. Basecamp - more project manager focused but also a good integration point. JIRA - Better for support and bug management than task management on a project/enterprise level

We evaluated a few different community platform vendors over the course of a couple of months. I believe we also evaluated Jive, Lithium, KickApps, and Powered.

  • Our community has had more than 100,000 interactions within the first 7 months of launching - and the product has been stable.
  • Small World Labs even contributes to the conversations in the community by participating with our community members and moderating, when necessary.
  • Our community experiences a high level of knowledge sharing (one of our goals), and is resulting in more informed and creative volunteers.
