Asana

it certainly is a really good tool when it comes to project management because it allows keeping track easily of how [our] timelines being handled, what is the overall progress of a specific task or a product as well as providing tools such as dashboards to see the performance of the team and based on that, making decisions to improve. It has room for improvement when it comes to board view, more specific when trying to organize more than one dimension for example having tasks related to front and back in the same board while trying to keep track of the progress of each one in the same space.

Slate, by Technolutions

I would recommend Slate, by Technolutions for any higher education institution, big or small. Though there is a higher cost associated with Slate than most other options, it's well worth the price. The level of detail that you're able to gather, maintain, and query on within your student data is far beyond anything I've experienced with other systems. These insights help you pinpoint areas for action and improvement so that you can pivot when necessary, helping you reach your enrollment goals quicker and more efficiently.

  • Integration with other tools (Office 365, MS Project)
  • No reminders if the working period you entered is on holidays

Usability

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.

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).

While I do wish they had actual representatives that we able to come to you for trainings for implementation and new users, I understand that a big draw is the money that is saved by instead investing in knowledgebase, which is it's online tutorials for different functions of Slate.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

Trello's look and feel could be more attractive for the creatives but Asana provides a more "logical" approach which is appealing to the technical types. It feels like Trello provides more degrees of freedom of use which could make collaboration a bit less structured and could make it harder for a new team member to effectively contribute.

We had been on Recruitment Plus- it has been sunsetted, so we were forced to move. I also looked at Fire Engine Red. Slate seemed far and away the most robust CRM/Admissions solution.

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.
