Asana

If you are working with a cross-functional team with multiple projects on the go regularly, Asana is a lifesaver. Everything can be shared in one place. Delegation is a breeze. Communication happens in real-time.If you and your employees all have unchanging duties daily, this probably isn't something you need in your organization. You could adapt it and use it as a "checklist software" but I wouldn't see much value in paying for it if you won't use it to manage projects.

It is very well suited when different branches of the company reside in different countries or time zones. It allows the project manager to efficiently keep track of the progress of their team members. It reduces the need for intensive calls where the manager asks for an extensive check in and update from each individual person. It also allows the project manager to update tasks and timelines as needed.

Pros

Asana

  • The best tools of Asana are found once we start a project, since the calendar that is integrated into our mail is super easy to use and we use it as a small agenda.
  • The management of projects is incredible, the monitoring provided is one of the best in its category, since it facilitates group work.
  • The creation and assignment of tasks, notifications and that each person can enter to work no matter where it is since it has a good mobile and web interface.

  • Task tracking: allows user to input tasks which may be marked off as finished by other members of the team.
  • Time tracking: allows users to log the amount of time spent on particular tasks.
  • Cross team management: allows users from different locations and time zones to view the same page and relevant tasks.

Cons

Asana

  • I wish it implemented easier with Outlook or Gmail. I would like for it to be easier to send tasks from email to Asana.
  • I think there's room for improvement in terms of how easy it is to make new Section Headers for tasks and lists.
  • I'd like for more aspects of the interface to be customizable.

  • It isn't quite as user-friendly as I would like. Once you are accustomed to it, it is very useful, but the initial use could be facilitated.
  • One user-friendly calendar interface that displays tasks and deadlines would be nice.
  • A real-time time logging button would be nice, rather than entering hours retroactively.

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.

Asana is very easy to use, you don't need to read any guide to understand how to use it. Works well on almost any device and navigator and the interface is friendly to everyone. Creating a task is easy, following them is also easy and the comments between people involved in the tasks are public, so anyone can follow the task if the employee assigned is not available at a specific moment.

The major reason to rate 9 ton asana are:1. Customer support is very good and fast.2. The e - mail reply to the user is within 24 hours and to efficiently handle query each issue allocated with a unique id number. 3. The cost is under budget not so high, but provide a lot of advantages

Alternatives Considered

Asana

There were a combination of factors that led us to decide on Asana, including ease of use and external system integrations, but primarily we could use it across geographically distributed offices successfully and incorporate a variety of end user work flows based on global geography, team constitution, and market focus

Resource Guru

Resource Guru is the only product of it's kind that I have used regularly. Slack is comparable in allowing communication between teams, but doesn't have nearly the functionality of Resource Guru. Resource Guru is the only product that I am aware of that manages tasks and deadlines between various team members, and can be accessed by all members.

Return on Investment

Asana

  • We went from disorganized to having our processes fully documented. This allows for projects to be duplicated and started faster, increasing my margins.
  • Less opportunity for missed tasks or confusion.
  • Progress checking always available and easy to use (for our clients)
Barbara Carneiro profile photo

Resource Guru

  • It has made our cross functional team much more productive and efficient.
  • The only negative feature is the slightly complicated user interface. Before a manager was fully introduced to the product, it was not utilized as much as should be.
  • It allowed all details of timelines to be updated easily (automatically), if the deadline is pushed forward or back.
