Basecamp is a great tool but looks a bit juvenile next to Asana. Basecamp treated us very well but Asana is a perfect fit for us now. It's easy to use and clients use it, which is a big win.

Teamwork was extremely complex and cluttered. Something that made is really hard for my …

I've used Asana as a project management software before, which is nice but the layout makes less sense to me than Teamwork. Teamwork is more streamlined and allows much more collaboration than Asana.
The one thing I like more about Asana is that you can color-coordinate …
Chose Teamwork.com
Teamwork has gantt charts which I find very useful but it's not a deal breaker for us. Trello is too simplistic and we have outgrown Basecamp. Our tool of choice given the specificities of my agency is Asana, after we tried to use Teamwork.

I have many friends who own agencies …

We moved from TaskRay to Teamwork Projects in large part because of the total cost. By moving away from TaskRay we were able to discontinue SalesForce licences for many team members that didn't need access to CRM data. The trade off is that projects and tasks aren't integrated …

Asana's UX is somewhat more intuitive, but that's the only thing that really holds better. Teamwork has chat, a media library, tasks, and teams that are much more intuitive to use.
Chose Teamwork.com
Teamwork does time-tracking for me, and because it's not only free for me, but also within the same application, Toggl and Harvest are obsolete.

Asana asks far too much money from a small business so Projects wins. Trello is fine but not near as thorough of a software as I need …
Chose Teamwork.com
We didn't like Asana. We thought it wasn't user-friendly at all and our team did not adapt to Asana. Some of us were not even using it because of how complex it was. We chose Teamwork and stayed with it because it was very user-friendly and it has everything our team needed.
Chose Teamwork.com
Teamwork is a more robust tool compared to Asana and was our "growing up" tool purchase. It made it easier to see all working Projects in a clearly separate environment from one another.
Chose Teamwork.com
We used Basecamp extensively and really dislike that tool. Teamwork Projects is so much better. We evaluated Wrike and Asana before ultimately deciding on Teamwork Projects. We felt it was a better option over those two for our use case.
Chose Teamwork.com
I've been a dedicated user of Asana and Basecamp, a dabbling user for Trello, a highly impressed Workfront prospect and I helped transition some teams from Redbooth. Some of the drag and drop efficiency from Asana and Basecamp aren't quite there in Teamwork but I think it makes …
Chose Teamwork.com
I spoke about this quite a bit before, but as far as usability goes, Microsoft Projects is totally useless for me, so I avoid it at all costs. Basecamp was just a task management app and had very small feature set beyond that. We had to rig it to do other things for us, but it …

We have tested other products but according to our context of use, Teamwork suited as the best option due to functionality (complete and easy-to-use) and fair pricing. We found and tested other tools that had the same features but they were not so intuitive. Basically, Teamwork …

The tools that Teamwork Projects offer are advanced yet not as confusing when compared to other platforms used in project management. It is compatible with the web and all mobile devices to enable users to go mobile when organizing projects, teams, and resources.

For my purposes, Teamwork blows all other project management systems out of the water. They are providing more frequent updates as well so the software is always improving. Teamwork's mobile app isn't as good as some other's, but that is not my main device, so that doesn't …

Teamwork Projects is better organized than other online tools. It is well though out and organized. Having the ability to set priorities and order on lists is a big deal for us. The best part was being able to toggle from lists to cards and get a visual indication of what is …

On the whole Teamwork Projects comes across as the preferred solution due to cost, speed of adoption, support for multiple devices, licensing models, support for internal/external users, email services, integration capability and the support services. Furthermore, the …

Teamwork Projects stacks up against them with one feature and it is tracking time. It is intuitive, but you need to give it some time - at first it may be a bit of an overwhelming tool, simply too difficult to use and enjoy.

We started with Basecamp and switched to Teamwork Projects because of it's greater flexibility with tasks especially. After using both I do prefer Teamwork Projects because of the many features. However, we aren't completely happy with it and are looking into other software …

I would say that Teamwork blows Trello out of the water, but Goodday may be better, especially when you consider the current price difference.

Asana fixed team issues like project transparency and communication, improved team performance, and enhanced office and mobile productivity. Upper management can solve project management issues quickly, and new hires can use the tool immediately. Asana's surveys simplify research and data collection. Its free trial, free plan, or paid SaaS subscription gives small and large teams the tools and centralized console to work through project tasks efficiently. Due to its complexity, Asana can be overwhelming at first.

Teamwork
Teamwork is awesome for teams who need a flexible tool that supports all types of projects. Since it supports kanban it makes visualizing the work to be done and the work in progress very easy. The Gantt chart support is decent and helps to understand how a team is doing when it comes to getting work done in a given time frame. Teamwork isn't a great option for companies that have a bunch of projects going simultaneously due to the way Teamwork structures their billing based on a number of active projects.

Pros
Asana
  • Through it, we were able to communicate and cooperate with the rest of the team to complete the work in the required manner and at the appropriate time.
  • Available for free on Android and iPhone.
  • Asana has a simple and easy user interface

Cons
Asana
  • Asana is not really a project management tool, it is good for simple projects only
  • UI has some glitches (doesn't save preferences, etc.)
  • Integration with other tools (Office 365, MS Project)
  • No reminders if the working period you entered is on holidays

Teamwork
  • Visualization needs to be improved, charts graphs are limited
  • Value stream mapping should be available to determine and prioritize the work.
  • Documentation should be available stepwise with export and printable facility.
  • It should be configurable like ERP with cross functionalities of different users, where users login, assign and approve the work, job or project details, where it should be collectively effected on a project.
  • Add many examples, little more AI, Machine learning required for suggestion and recommendation. It would be a plus point

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

We are already at an annual contract, and have been for the past 5 years; so far the system has delivered, and our personal is already trained in it. A major overhaul of our entire infrastructure (as in moving everything to a single, unified platform) might change the current continuity of Teamwork Projects on our organization, but that's not feasible in the near future.

Usability
Asana
It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

Teamwork
I give it a 9 out of 10, because there is a bit of a learning curve when you first start using Teamwork Projects because there is a lot to learn & recognize where to find it. They do offer a good range of tools that can be applied to every project - So say you're working on an internal project and don't need Milestones or Billing, you can shut those modules off. This can help simplify the interface for beginners. Once you've had a few days in Teamwork Projects, I think it's a 10/10 usability. It's very easy to accomplish your tasks and keep track of what you're managing.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

We've been able to meet with the customer success team on multiple occasions to discuss the roadmap and learn about the company culture. Being based in Ireland, we occasionally have to wait until they wake up to get support requests handled in the states and larger conversations about big enhancement requests were politely collected but not followed up on

I like how extensive the capabilities are for Asana. With other softwares it seems there are many things lacking. I feel like Asana is also a very user friendly platform and aesthetically pleasing which is important in a modern office. We have many young people entering our workspace and it is important to have software that is ahead of the times in functionality and efficiency.

Return on Investment
Asana
  • Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines.
  • Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running.
  • Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving.

  • Teamwork was a great starter into project management software. We were WAY more organized and efficient than we ever were with Trello boards and the PM software included with our accounting system.
  • Clients were mostly pleased with interacting with Teamwork, and appreciated the ability to track their comments and requests in one place.
  • Ultimately, we stopped using Teamwork after about 6 months because we need something more focused on web development projects specifically
