Quip

Quip is perfect for small businesses. I'm sure it would be handy for large businesses as well, but for small businesses, this is a magnificent solution to keep seemingly everything in one place. Also, it's incredibly affordable! There is a free version, but if/when you're ready to upgrade to the paid version, it's not expensive at all.

Pros

  • Everyone on the team can monitor the progress of all tasks.
  • Document control is managed with Asana as the front-end and Google Drive (or Dropbox) as the back-end.
  • There is no top-level admin therefore everyone can feel empowered to push tasks/projects along.
  • Documenting processes is simple.
  • Mobile app on both iOS and Android.

  • Setting up documents, speadsheets, to-do lists and editing them on the go from various applications
  • Team chat feature is also very good
  • Some good and useful templates already present help you start quickly and learn very fast

Cons

  • 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.

  • Limited color coding options

I just can't see us getting it off of Asana any time soon, despite the many headaches it has caused us. We have too much data in there, too much time & training invested into it, too much at stake to move. If we were just starting out today, fresh, I don't know for certain that I would absolutely go the same direction, but I *think* I still would. I just haven't seen anything better yet. Maybe if Podio's support staff hadn't treated me like a worthless nuisance to them, I might feel differently, but the fact is that their task management is simply inferior to Asana's. That can't be denied, and in fact Podio said it themselves: "Tasks are a simple function. They cannot be customized. Tasks in Podio can be used for quick to-do's for you and your team members." In our operation, however, prompt task completion is a big deal; one task can't be completed until another one is done first, and closing the gaps between those tasks is critical in meeting deadlines and servicing our customers. Asana gets us there, the others don't.

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

We also use Active Collab to track tasks and issue work tickets. I find this to be a much harder tool to use vs. Asana. It was not in the drop down menue above but its a tool we actively use and I can tell you its hard to find tickets once you have created them and assigned them unless you keep the link in an email. Asana is easy to locate all your tasks and due dates because of your personal dash and projects list. Active collab requires you to create too many levels for one task, the main ticket, then the tasks within the ticket which you have to individually create to be able to track each milestone, if there is no task assigned it doesnt appear in the designers list of things to do, which in turn creates issues and forgotten tasks. None of this is an issue with Asana.

Quip is free. Again, as mentioned earlier: it is a fantastic tool that does most of the job if you do not have the budget for an MS Office license. It does the job well for most professional documents in Word or Excel type docs. It is more easy and intuitive to use since it has fewer features.
