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.

As we have already described, it is an ideal tool for small and medium companies, with a well designed ERP system and adjusted to the reality of the business. It is a sober, reliable tool with extensive experience in the development of administrative tools. The cost-benefit ratio is appropriate for companies of this size. The points of improvement are the integration with other platforms and the visual interface for average users.

Pros

  • Fast: Unlike other PM platforms I've used, Asana is very fast. In fact, it's so fast that when you leave a comment on a task, anyone else looking at that task at the same time will actually see updates as you type. You can easily move tasks into different projects by dragging and dropping. There is no lag time between opening new projects and tasks. Everything seems to load instantaneously.
  • Intuitive: Asana doesn't have a steep learning curve. The default view is list-based. Your team will have no problem learning how to add new tasks, use the WYSIWYG editor, or assign tasks. Use familiar commands like "@" to tag a follower on a task.
  • Keyboard shortcuts: The keyboard shortcuts are incredibly helpful. Simply press enter to enter a new task, tab+backspace to delete, use familiar copy/paste and undo commands, and much more. PMs with a lot to juggle will appreciate the shortcuts.
  • My Tasks: The "my tasks" view provides a single, centralized location for you to see everything on your plate. Use section headings and drag and drop tasks to re-order. I use this to prioritize my week. It helps me focus on what's really important.
  • Searchability: The search in Asana is intuitive. Our task backlog dates back three years, and I can still almost always find what I'm looking for via a simple keyword search. Projects are archived, not deleted, so I always feel like my historical information is safe.
  • Flexibility: Projects can be set up as a waterfall/list view or as kanban. This product should work well for teams with different styles.
  • Integrations: Asana integrates with everything. There's a great Slack integration, but my favorite is the Instagantt integration. Using Instagantt in tandem with asana is a super easy way to create attractive digital project calendars.

  • Custom reporting in SAP Business One is particularly easy due to the SQL back end. With SQL experience, and adequate documentation, it is a generally painless process extracting relate-able data and meeting reporting needs.
  • Relational documents are easily produced. Utilizing the "relationship map" on any document will show all other related documents. For example, clicking "relationship map" on a sales order will bring up the quote, purchase order, and invoice for that particular sales order.
  • Process flow is logical and understandable.
  • Forms customization is fairly easy. Utilizing Crystal Reports for many forms allows the end user to modify the forms to meet their particular needs.
John Bird profile photo

Cons

  • It's not that easy to change or update the name of the title. You need to click the arrow down button beside the title to edit. I believe it should be easier like just click on the current title and change it.
  • I would like Asana to put a feature like Facebook and LinkedIn where you know who's online and who's not online. Because if the person-in-charge is online you can communicate with him real time rather than waiting for him to respond later on.
  • I would be glad too if they add a voice call or video call feature so that if you have concerns and the person you would like to talk to is online you can speak with him right away. Some comments or revisions just needs to be explained through a call to eliminate misunderstandings.
Brent Lionel Mausisa profile photo
  • Posting payments - if trying to post payments for a prior date, it always puts back the actual date of the time you deposit. This makes it much more tedious if posting checks from a previous date.
  • Start-up time - start-up time can be very slow if you do not have a large amount of ram in your computer to keep up with SAP's massive size.
  • Crashing - depending on how many add-on's you have, SAP can have a tendency to crash. It should be more add-on friendly.

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.

As I said before, it is a first level tool, well developed, and with very strong development support, although the learning curve, its implementation, the cost-benefit ratio, the price and the user experience is not the most suitable for small and medium-sized companies. It is a company with extensive experience, market positioning, technical support and expanded use

Being a high profile tool, a user level with specific experience and skills is required to use the program. Which deserves special attention in the junior staff, requires a good management of the administrative part to develop all the benefits of the program. For young and inexperienced people the interface is not flashy. Although it is a very complete program.

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).

Over the past two years SAP has added a great deal of new SAP Business One on-line training for version 9.0 and 9.1. Most of the training is very strong, but some is difficult to understand and follow. Additionally, SAP still has a few holes in their on-line training around Production, Bill-of-Materials, MRP and Service.

Conduct interviews with the administrative and accounting areas, ask about the experience with the tool, make free test modules to detect the possibilities of use, as well as, validate the necessary investment for the implementation of the program with the system area, to determine if it is the most viable option

Alternatives Considered

We loved the fun design hacks (e.g., flying celebratory unicorns when you complete a task, Tab+B puts tabby cats on your screen temporarily; themed backgrounds). We're marketers–can you blame us?! But in all seriousness, we chose Asana over other similar products because of the detail that Asana could go into when tasking out subtasks to individuals with separate deadlines. Managers are also able to view the tasks that team members are working on to manage workload. It's also helped increase visibility of task details amongst team members to provide background on projects they might be looped into in the future.

SAP B1 does not have the same functionality that SAP ERP has, which would be more beneficial for the type of business we are in, but because we are not large enough, it would not be cost effective. Upgrading to SAP All in One would eventually be a better functional solution for our company in the future because of our size, and the various types of oilfield services we provide.

For most small businesses, the only way you outgrow SAP Business One is if the nature of your business changes radically. Going from 1 to 50 users is quite easy with SAP B1. Going beyond 50 may require moving to the Hana SAP B1 platform to maintain or improve performance, but the path is there.
Add-ons to SAP B1 can also be added as specific needs are encountered that are not closely met by the standard product. These may be required early in the product life because of the nature of your business, or as you expand the use of SAP B1.

Return on Investment

  • I'm not sure how this impacts our ROI. We are able to manage our workload better and see the workload we have.
No photo available
  • SAP Business One dramatically reduces the time of communication between the departments in the company.
  • The possibilities for the users to make their own reports (at least the simple ones), reduces the cost of the consulting you will need, although some consulting will always be needed at the start of the project if you don't have an in-house team.
  • All the processes in sales and purchase departments are greatly improved in our company, so users can spend more time analyzing information and scenarios, and less time doing routinary work and data input.
