Considered Both Products
Asana
Chose Asana
Asana is the best for task management, it’s easy to use and streamlined for team members to use with minimal intervention. It’s a lot nicer to use compared to similar products like Projectplace although there is some difference in features. It has much better features in terms …
Planview ProjectPlace
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
To me, ProjectPlace is the winner above and beyond all of these. Similar or less expensive, and far more practical functionality. Rather than try to be all things to all people, it focuses on basic functions that apply to most businesses. Beyond Asana, JIRA, and Trello (which …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
We have used Asana before but there is more functionality within Projectplace and allows for more to be done.
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
Asana is a simpler system for managing tasks, teams, projects and documents. For our small size, we decided Planview Projectplace was too big a system to use and opted for Asana. If you're a larger organisation this might be a good fit for you with the enterprise level of …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
Asana is an excellent tool, but Planview is more geared for difficult projects and less task oriented so it works very well.
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
Microsoft Project has more features than Planview Projectplace but can be a bit difficult to get used to. I find that Projectplace is a balance between Asana and Microsoft Projects in terms of features. Projectplace shines in its ability to handle large projects better han Asana
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
Most of these others don't have many of the features that are available in Planview Projectplace. The agile methodology is in a true sense covered by Planview Projectplace, not by Asana nor Wrike. In Confluence, one has to link up with Jira for full functionality, but in …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
I selected Planview ProjectPlace over its competitors for a number of reasons. Firstly, I found that it offered the most robust set of features and tools for managing and tracking projects. It has a wide range of customization options, which has been especially useful for my …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
The price made it impossible for us to select Projectplace as a long-term solution so it was quickly discarded. But the main issue was really the lack of support for more complex agile methodologies. We were unable to really work within a pure SAFe or Scrum framework since the …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
We can increase productivity to identify tasks that are important in the activity structure. Planview Projectplace is very efficient and easy for multiple departments.
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
The organizational structure (cards/boards), user interface (drag/drop/assigning tasks), and visual appeal of Projectplace are all major benefits. There is still a lot for my company/I to learn and utilize with Project Place, but I have heard from other users who have used …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
We still use Trello and will continue to use it for some teams and specific tasks, we also use Basecamp mostly within the technical team. Planview Projectplace is the tool that we hope will help us to move most of our work for collaboration and communication in one place to …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
  • ASANA - It's very limited since we can't illustrate GANTT charts in the same way as with Projectplace.
  • JIRA - Software heavy and not really for us as a customer-focused project department.
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
I did not select Projectplace, so I can't speak to that. In my experience with both, they both have their pros and cons. I think from a big picture point of view, Projectplace is more helpful for tracking time, and managing creation of projects, etc. which is probably a big …
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
Blows them away... file management and review functionality!
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
The ease of use and management made us chose Projectplace.
Chose Planview ProjectPlace
In caparison, Projectplace “Ticked all the boxes” for collaboration, task management, mobility and ease of use.

Asana
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.

Planview
I have found it to be a valuable asset for managing and tracking the progress of projects. It has helped me to streamline project management, improve communication and collaboration, and stay organized with my workload. I use it across my entire organization, which includes multiple locations in different countries. It is available in a variety of languages, which has been useful for team members who speak different languages and need to communicate with one another. It has a user-friendly interface that makes it simple for me to assign tasks, track progress, and collaborate with my team. I have found it to be particularly well-suited for managing complex projects that involve multiple teams or departments, as it allows me to see the big picture and ensure that everyone is working towards the same goals. However, there are a few areas where I feel like it could be improved. I would like to see more customization options for creating custom reports and dashboards, and I think the user interface could be made more intuitive. Additionally, the mobile app is somewhat limited in terms of functionality, and I would like to see it expanded to include more features and tools.

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

  • As a cloud based solution, Projectplace is one of the few true multiple location, multi person project management tools available for large teams. The reliability for large projects (with teams of anywhere between 50-200+ people) was a huge selling point for this and I witnessed this first hand.
  • The Windows and Mac applications for Projectplace are well designed and work impressively well for a project management tool. I found most of the teams had either application installed on their machine and did not have any complaints about it.
  • Features like AI and project management viewing styles like Kanban, Ganntt and others make the experience customizable for each user and made them adapt it to their preferred project management style.

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

  • Under the time tracking, it would be nice to have a set template that would load each week and not have to click a button to load the previous week's template.
  • Somehow making it more intuitive.
  • Having to add in each service line and each detail that I cover for every service line each week is a bit ridiculous.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

We're committed now & have >50 users on Projectplace. All our projects are now tracked in the tool. We this investment of time & training, the cost of maintaining Projectplace is relatively low for the benefit. So we will renew, even if there are some idiosyncrasies in the tool & there are opportunities for improvement.

Usability
Asana
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.

ProjectPlace has a qualitative way of creating time management for all projects, and this multiplies the focus on business needs. Again, ProjectPlace has value for every business need, and they are captured to suit the firm's needs. ProjectPlace creates a collaborative need way that ensures proper coordination for every business player.

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).

Planview ProjectPlace has a support that is super friendly, well coordinating, and it even supports the live chat. Further, Planview ProjectPlace has the objection of creating a lasting relationship, through attentive collaboration and continuous updates.The direction that Planview ProjectPlace takes in accommodating ideas is also very swift and content.

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.

It offers a simpler alternative that's easier to manage by the less tech-savvy people. I also think that Planview Projectplace has managed to keep the product updated compared to other project management tools. Miro is perhaps the one that comes to mind, but while evaluating, we saw fewer issues with Planview Projectplace. Overall, the decision came down to the project manager, that had previous experience and recommended the product. For me, using a product from a smaller company is better because I know that there will be a focus on improving it, unlike, for example, Microsoft products that can be discontinued at any moment.

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.

  • [We have the] ability to support remote work through projects that scale across multiple groups
  • We have large-scale quarterly projects, so the ability to save and duplicate project templates are helpful for us to keep track of tasks down to the specific card
