Likelihood to Recommend

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.

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.

  • One of my favorite things about SAP was the data integrity. Because of how easily the various modules tied together there was much less room for error.
  • Integration. The various modules that SAP has work seamlessly when configured correctly. SAP has a module for what seems like everything from manufacturing processes to Maintenance to Sales Forecasting and more.
  • Change Migration. Moving changes from a development, to testing, to production is very easy via SAP transports. Also refreshing DEV and QA environments from production can be accomplished easily.

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.

  • SAP ERP must make an effort to simplify the use of its system, considering that it requires learning time to make the most of its applications.
  • SAP ERP should look for ways to integrate modules better considering that in the simulation of the modules there can be confusion.
  • It is a complex program that must offer its users a module to help with the use of tools so that they can take full advantage of the tools.

I had a positive experience with it. It was easy to learn and my team really enjoyed collaborating it and assigning projects through this tool. If I could get all staff involved and provide incentives for all of us to use the tool, we would be probably 2x more efficient with our productivity. Everyone has their own tools to manage projects but we should stick to just one tool like Asana.

I am not part of the team that makes this decision but I would recommend renewing the contract. Most employees at Tennant are long term employees and would find it difficult to change to a different software. They are comfortable using SAP.

Lots of useful features, if you can learn how to use them and actually implement it across enough of the team to adapt it

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

For copywriters and designers not used to more complex project management software, Asana was certainly a relatively user friendly interface to use in order to keep track of daily tasks and project progress. We ran with Asana as an initial trial because it required the fewest number of clicks to build out a project, build out its tasks, and update those tasks from day to day.

We used some Oracle modules - they were effective, but SAP is powerful when integration of data is heavily required

Return on Investment

  • I definitely feel more organized and more effective when I'm assigned a task via Asana. It makes it easier to keep track of than email. I also work off-location from the rest of the team.

  • Positive because you have the transactions necessary for the complete functioning of the different departments (orders, deliveries, credits).
  • Negative at the moment that it is necessary to manage an order but [we] do not have the permissions of the transactions (prior to written authorization) and the responsible department is not there.
  • Negative because we have a way to send emails in SAP ERP but it is very complicated to use and we are using the email manager.
  • Negative because we don't have a simple and friendly way to send emails from SAP. It is very complicated to use and then we copy the information from SAP and paste in a new email message.
