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.

Great option if you have no budget to acquire MS Office 365.Good option for situations that require teamwork and several people editing the same document simultaneously.Not a good option for sophisticated situations that call for documents prepared for external clients that need a more professional layout.Useful as a safe location to keep documents, but only for Word and Excel-like types.

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.

  • Live collaboration - it shows where people are working and making edits.
  • Organization - it's easy to see recent updates, drill into folders, and use the search.
  • Privacy & Sharing - The sharing and revision history gives me peace of mind.

Cons

  • I personally have not found anything that I would recommend at this time. However, I have noticed that the older generation of employees struggle with its style where the computer savvy and younger generation thrive. I have no idea how Asana could overcome that obstacle.

  • When you open up functionality to the entire company via share, they seem to get really annoying emails and requests through Quip.
  • The user interface can be confusing at time; it's hard to get from one note to another.
  • The formatting is typically great. But there are some annoying issues with Headers (markup format) and bullet points which need to be worked out. Not show stoppers, but annoying!

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.

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 had used Mavenlink in other departments but for the Design, Product Development and R&D teams, Asana made much more sense and we have not regretted the switch for them. The organization is key when forming ideas and doing a bunch of research, it is difficult to keep all of these things organized. This was our main goal when we chose Asana, we had heard good things and wanted those benefits for our team.

Quip is better designed than other communication tools and has incredible apps and integrations. Its search makes finding answers easier than other tools I've used in the past and helps me feel connected to my team

Return on Investment

  • While an ROI study on something like this is rarely done, I'd go with a success/failure comparison. Every project I've used Asana on has been successful (and yes, all other factors were the same). Nearly EVERY project using old tools such as excel, MS project, powerpoint reporting has failed, missed deadlines, mis-communicated scope and task management.
  • From an engineering perspective, developers and managers love it because there's clear visibility into what needs to be done and what is being done and by whom. Getting developers and managers to agree on almost anything is difficult and Asana accomplishes this.

  • Made sharing information across the team much faster - greater % of time spent on work vs. sharing information.
  • Streamlined meeting process and labelling actions to different individuals.
