Asana

If you are working with a cross-functional team with multiple projects on the go regularly, Asana is a lifesaver. Everything can be shared in one place. Delegation is a breeze. Communication happens in real-time.If you and your employees all have unchanging duties daily, this probably isn't something you need in your organization. You could adapt it and use it as a "checklist software" but I wouldn't see much value in paying for it if you won't use it to manage projects.

Umbraco CMS

Umbraco CMS is the perfect tool for a company that is looking to keep their website updated. The simple to use tools and templates means updating and creating new pages is easy. The WYSIWYG editor is a nice feature, however, for accessibility, there should be some more guidance on what is suitable to be used on the CMS.

Pros

Asana

  • The best tools of Asana are found once we start a project, since the calendar that is integrated into our mail is super easy to use and we use it as a small agenda.
  • The management of projects is incredible, the monitoring provided is one of the best in its category, since it facilitates group work.
  • The creation and assignment of tasks, notifications and that each person can enter to work no matter where it is since it has a good mobile and web interface.

  • Publishing - Umbraco has powerful tools for publishing
  • Media hosting

Cons

Asana

  • I wish it implemented easier with Outlook or Gmail. I would like for it to be easier to send tasks from email to Asana.
  • I think there's room for improvement in terms of how easy it is to make new Section Headers for tasks and lists.
  • I'd like for more aspects of the interface to be customizable.

Umbraco CMS

  • Umbraco can initially be challenging for new users with limited or no development experience. After initial installation, there is a lot more work required to 'see' a site.
  • Umbraco isn't stable. For example, even on a fresh new site sometimes you'll get errors when trying to save something in the admin panel. It's not common, but it happens often enough to be annoying.
  • No out of the box contact forms. Umbraco sells their forms plugin that we've used in the past, but the plugin is disappointing. It isn't well maintained and it's very buggy. Making a new contact form with the paid plugin can take a lot of time to get everything right (fields, validation, confirmation emails, etc). This is especially frustrating for new users.
  • Documentation / resource links frequently 404. Umbraco seems to change their site URLs often enough that, when you encounter an issue, you're likely to find a number of bad links in Google's search results. This makes it difficult to research solutions to a problem.
  • Posts often go unanswered or without resolution in their community support forums. Hopefully this will improve as the community grows.
  • The update process is clumsy at best. Many people are familiar with the simple WordPress upgrade button for the core and plugins. This doesn't exist at all for Umbraco. Instead, you'll need to select specific files to overwrite and potentially update any old code references.
  • Migration between development environments is clumsy. Umbraco offers a premium plugin to address this because, as they state on the premium plugin page, deployments are "complicated, headache-inducing"

Asana is adding more useful features and it makes the work of their entire team more organized and more efficient. It really helps us in achieving greater achievements as a team. It helps us to earn more revenue since we have more satisfied clients, simply because we are able to finish their project on time or even before the due date.

Asana is very easy to use, you don't need to read any guide to understand how to use it. Works well on almost any device and navigator and the interface is friendly to everyone. Creating a task is easy, following them is also easy and the comments between people involved in the tasks are public, so anyone can follow the task if the employee assigned is not available at a specific moment.

Working in the admin panel (adding / reviewing / editing content) is very slow.The public facing site speed is dependent on what the pages are doing and how well the code was written (whether it is optimized for speed).

The major reason to rate 9 ton asana are:1. Customer support is very good and fast.2. The e - mail reply to the user is within 24 hours and to efficiently handle query each issue allocated with a unique id number. 3. The cost is under budget not so high, but provide a lot of advantages

Online training is often based on older versions of the platform. So, you'll have to fill in the gaps on your own.

Spend the time to wireframe the content structure prior to diving in. This helps speed the process of implementation and it serves as documentation for end users.

Alternatives Considered

Asana

There were a combination of factors that led us to decide on Asana, including ease of use and external system integrations, but primarily we could use it across geographically distributed offices successfully and incorporate a variety of end user work flows based on global geography, team constitution, and market focus
Kirk Brote profile photo

Umbraco CMS

There is not really an alternative when it comes to CMS based on ASP.Net (MVC4 with Razor). There are a few frameworks, like Booststrap; however framework is not content management system. I will compare it to Drupal, because the second one is well known. Against Drupal, Umbraco is very clean and fast framework/CMS. It does not have as much of big community, support or range of plugins as Drupal.
