Asana

Overall, despite its drawbacks, Asana works really well for our team. I think this is an appropriate [tool] for a mid-sized digital marketing firm, like ourselves. A software development team is going to want something more robust, like JIRA. However, if you're just shopping for an easy-to-learn tool that will help you manage responsibilities without relying on email? Asana is perfect. Its flexibility also makes it a great fit for most work-flows in almost any industry. Asana is simple out-of-the-box, but it does have robust functionalities that will allow your team to ramp up if desired.

Podium

Podium is well suited for several types of businesses. If you are an entrepreneur or small business owner, Podium would be a great way for you to ask that customers leave you a review online sharing their awesome experience. For medium to large businesses, Podium review invites can be automated through the company's customer management system, allowing the use of Podium to be simple and not timely, even with a large customer base. It may not be appropriate for a large company to manually send out individual review invites

Pros

  • Report of tasks added to tasks completed to see how productive the team has been with a particular project.
  • Individual tasks so you can see how swamped/not others on the team are.
  • Adding a project/task to multiple projects is awesome. We have a general ALL marketing projects in one project and then separate them out in another (email, social media, etc.).

  • Podium is intuitive and easy to use. All the dealership employee has to do is open an app, enter in the customer's name and cell phone number, and hit 'send'. Simplicity and ease of use translate into greater buy-in and utilization.
  • From a consumer's perspective Podium makes it really easy to write a review. It gives the customer the option to write a review on any number of review sites determined/provided by the dealership. When they select the review site they wish to post on, the customer is taken directly to the page where they can give a star rating and write about their experience.
  • From an administrative perspective, it is very easy to set up and manager new users, manage which review sites are listed, and view helpful reports.

Cons

  • I hate that Asana does not have time keeping functionality inbuilt. I use Asana with lot of contractors and I would love if there was a time keeping function.
  • Asana sends me a lot of notifications. Sometimes it is super helpful but often I opt out of notifications. I would love to see if Asana can optimize or change the notification frequency in a unique way.
  • Asana does not allow me to chat if the other user or team members are online. I would love to have that feature instead of just commenting.

  • If Podium could find a way to report back from Google and other review sites when a user referred to that review site by Podium actually posted a review and tie those reviews to the person who sent the invite to the customer, that would help to add another layer of accountability and recognition to salespeople who are following the process.
  • I'd like to see Podium add a service where they respond to positive reviews on behalf of the dealership and provide suggested responses to bad reviews which the dealer could accept, reject, or edit and post.
  • Another functionality that could improve the Podium product would be a tie-in to social media. A way to share reviews on Facebook, invite the customer to follow up on social media, and perhaps even a way to take a picture of the customer with their new car and post it to our page.

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.

It has only helped improve our reputation online by giving us an easy way to invite our customers to give us feedback. This way we can make adjustments and gauge how we are doing for our customers.

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 only had a hard time getting our technicians to remember to send the review invites.

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 use Digital Air Strike at our two GM dealerships because it is one of a small list of reputation management companies authorized by GM as part of their SFE program. Digital Air Strike surveys our customers and invites them to write a review about our dealership. It is not as effective or flexible as Podium so we have been using Podium at those dealerships alongside Digital Air Strike. We also recently started a trial use of ReplyPro which is a service that monitors review sites and writes customized responses to positive reviews and suggested responses to negative reviews. I'd like to see Podium add this as part of their service so we can consolidate 3rd party vendors and manage every aspect of online reputation management from one place.

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.
No photo available
  • 300 total reviews from 2009 to 2017. From August to present day we have more than doubled.
  • Podium has allowed us to target reviews on different platforms like Google, Facebook, etc.
  • Targeting does get skewed because it is the customer's choice on which social media to submit a review.
