Likelihood to Recommend

Asana

Asana is very suitable for creating milestones for app development, web development, marketing projects, lead generation projects, project fulfillment and tracking the progress all the goals and targets of the team. It less appropriate for tracking sales, storing customer details, software development (JIRA is more appropriate for this). I will highly recommend Asana to start-ups as well as corporate teams to organize their workflows very well.

Teamwork Projects

If you are looking for something more than Trello, and want to avoid MS Projects or Basecamp, Teamwork would be a great fit. Also, if you don't need project/industry-specific capabilities (e.g. web development, programming, etc.) teamwork is a solid performer. I would guess it is ideally suited for smaller teams and SMBs, but maybe not enough of a platform for large enterprises.

Pros

  • Everyone on the team can monitor the progress of all tasks.
  • Document control is managed with Asana as the front-end and Google Drive (or Dropbox) as the back-end.
  • There is no top-level admin therefore everyone can feel empowered to push tasks/projects along.
  • Documenting processes is simple.
  • Mobile app on both iOS and Android.

  • Ubiquitous Access: Teamwork Projects runs on every platform including web browsers, tablets and smartphones. For the mobile editions, Teamwork Projects also has native apps for Android and iOS which means my user community has ubiquitous access to the product no matter where they are.
  • Usability: The design of the user interface is clean, crisp and incredibly easy to use. My user community has generally got to grips with the product with no formal training. The product is intuitive and very user-friendly.
  • Feature-Rich: We have replaced a plethora of project management tools used by the business with a single product in Teamwork Projects, including Microsoft Project, Basecamp, Trello, Asana, LeanKit and JIRA. We have only been able to do this because of the breadth of functionality within Teamwork
  • Updates: The product is being enhanced constantly; we see new features every month
  • Support: Online and human support is always effective and highly responsive

Cons

  • A complete lack of even the most basic reporting is a source of ongoing disappointment and frustration. I would like to know, at the very least, how many unarchived projects I have. It would be extremely helpful to know how many incomplete tasks there are, how many tasks are being completed per day or week, or any of those things. Asana doesn't tell you anything at all about what is going on inside of it. Even the filter dropdown, which shows a number of matching tasks for each tag filter includes both completed and incompleted tasks even if you have completed tasks hidden in that view. We have been on Asana for over a year-and-a-half with absolutely no reporting whatsoever beyond what we tracked manually in spreadsheets. This is without a doubt the single most annoying thing about using Asana.
  • The project list is an unmitigated, unsortable disaster if you have a large number of projects. Going through it is an hours-long chore of scrolling down, clicking "More Projects..." scrolling down and repeating over and over. To make matter worse, the most recently entered projects always appear at the bottom, so if you have any open but delayed/stalled projects, you'll have to scroll past them to get to the items you can actually get completed. Since projects have no defining characteristics unto themselves that allow any sorting options, you are ever at the mercy of the search box to find anything in any reasonable amount of time, and that search box carries its own set of tiny migraine-inducers.
  • The search box is fast enough to function, but not fast enough that you can actually click on things before the results change again as it searches through more items that match your terms. No less than twenty times a day do I search for a tag or project, then click (or arrow key down and hit enter) on the tag or project I am looking for in the results list just as it re-orders itself, causing me to have clicked on the wrong result. Then I have to type my search all over again. The search feature does not work for archived projects, either, so the only ways to find them are to search for a tag you know might be on that project, or scroll all the way down to the archived projects list at the bottom of the main projects list and then patiently hunt-and-peck for them as you scroll further still.
  • The API for integration, unlike the web app itself, is painfully slow. I don't know if it is because it wants to pull down every project every time (including archived ones) instead of just the ones you are looking to access or what, but our dev team has had one heck of a time getting it to stay online and functioning. Our integration breaks down regularly, and that affects our photography dispatch report, our automated generation of new tasks when a sale comes in, and our fledgling reporting system (which seems to return only zeroes and ones). Some of this is on our dev team to fix, but I have to blame a cumbersome API for most of the speed issues.

  • Load Time - I'm sure they are working on this but I found Teamwork Projects does tend to load a little slowly. If you use some shortcuts and tricks to navigate quickly it may not be noticeable but I've tested out other software and some other platforms seem to load considerably faster.
  • Board View - I'm not a fan of the card system in general. I know a lot of people like it so take this for a grain of salt but the integration between board view and task view is not super smooth. Projects don't automatically have columns (although you can probably set defaults) and if you don't manually assign a column to each task, they are put in the backlog, which basically makes it so you have tons of tasks in there. It isn't terrible but software like Goodday.Work had a much smoother system for having both board views and list views.
  • Expensive - It was a little on the high side before they upped their prices, but now with them charging $69/month for just the low level plan (from $49/month), it's a quite a bit higher than other options out there. This is even more drastic when you consider what other companies give with their free plans. I believe Asana only charges you when you are over 15 users, Goodday.Work is still free, and Trello is basically free if you don't mind storing files somewhere else and not using integrations.

Asana is great for how I end up using it. When a new project launches and I get busy, I can easily pick it up and begin using it again and as I get more time (or the project completes) I can drop it again. It seems to morph better than any other application to exactly what project I'm working on, what I need to track, etc. It simply fits into my life extremely well and I'll end up using it again every time I start a new project.

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.

The UI is clear, well laid out and very user friendly.The authors of the Teamwork Projects product have managd to cram a lot of detail into a small real estate without over-burdening the user.Adoption by my users has been extremely rapid with very little re-familiarisation required once they've got going.I do like the fact that there is an element of first-time user support embedded within the application. It means that I can point users to a sign-up page and spend very little time with them thereart

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).

The support service provided by Teamwork is excellent, and one of the best I've experienced. This is for the following reasons:(1) The speed at which they respond to queries I raise(2) The depth of understanding they have of the product(3) The way in which they are able to understand my questions without needing me to re-explain(4) The quality of the documentation available online(5) The openness they express about current issues and downtime

Alternatives Considered

Asana was developed with a very specific function in mind. Assigning and tracking tasks and projects. It does this very very well and doesn't really do a whole lot yes, which is perfectly fine. The only alternatives I could think of would be some sort of Dropbox or Google Drive document keeping track of task assignment. While, this might work, it's definitely not as feature-packed as Asana. And you'll still use either Dropbox or Google Drive for document collaboration.

I've seen dapulse in action and its a good product but much better for small teams and unique tasks. Teamwork has a more sophisticated and clean interface, is easier to navigate and doesn't get overwhelmed with "too many people in the kitchen" as tasks and projects can be shared, assigned as subtasks, etc.

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.
