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.

Pivotal Tracker

Pivotal Tracker is a great value for the money. If you're strapped for cash and have to work with smaller budgets, this is the right app for you. The support team is great and responsive and the product is easy to pick up and use for your team. It's great to have visibility on your product backlog.

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.

  • Project management - helpful for tracking the overall project as well as sub-projects associated with it, thanks to Epic/Story/Mini-Epic/etc breakdown of items
  • Cross communication - each posting (story, epic, etc) allows for commenting and communication regarding the topic so all communication can be logged under the task
  • Analytics - PT shows you the speed at which project statuses change and are completed so you can track your team's efficiency.

Cons

  • Nothing to note, really. We love it!
Barbara Carneiro profile photo
  • The UI has been buggy (maybe releasing too quickly without adequate QA).
  • There is some rigidity in the UI which limits what it could be
  • Lots of features...some which aren't particularly useful in every scenario (velocity) which could be omitted by option to make the app simpler.

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.

I love the simplicity, non-configurability, and price/performance of this tool. Hands down my favorite project management tool for agile.

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).

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!

Our organization actually does not exclusively use Pivotal. We also have teams on solutions like Trello and LeanKit. It's all preference, those who buy into all the agile features that pivotal provides, love it. Those who do not need all the overhead, simply use a different solution as their primary work log. However, every team still has a pivotal tracker as we use it as our primary system of record for audit history.

  • Been useful for years now, despite other options
  • Pivotal is a great platform across teams since you can drag "stories" from tracker to tracker
