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.

Workamajig

I think this holds true to almost any CRM, but if you want to truly utilize it you sort of need to go all in. This can become tough with WMJ because it doesn't offer some critical options that many other CRMs do, like the ability to create and send emails, e-newsletters, to throttle and invite outside clients to look at projects, etc. As such we're pairing Workamajig with Hubspot (and slowly phasing out Mailchimp) and trying to keep the data clean and flowing between them all is pretty tough. I'm also not aware of any API bridge from Wordpress to Workamajig so while I can program and feed my leads from my site into the other spaces, Workamajig remains a manual entry for any insertions you want, even if simply as a CSV import.
But - if you're not worried about that and simply want to manage projects, budget time, and scope things, it's a robust system allowing you to do so.

Pros

  • Report of tasks added to tasks completed to see how productive the team has been with a particular project.
  • Individual tasks so you can see how swamped/not others on the team are.
  • Adding a project/task to multiple projects is awesome. We have a general ALL marketing projects in one project and then separate them out in another (email, social media, etc.).

  • Workamajig provides a way for anyone to look up any job and be able to check statuses or even pick up where the last person left off.
  • As a designer, Workamajig has streamlined communication between the design team, account managers and accounting departments.
  • Workamajig allows me to clearly understand my schedule so I can focus on my work as a designer!

Cons

  • I hate that Asana does not have time keeping functionality inbuilt. I use Asana with lot of contractors and I would love if there was a time keeping function.
  • Asana sends me a lot of notifications. Sometimes it is super helpful but often I opt out of notifications. I would love to see if Asana can optimize or change the notification frequency in a unique way.
  • Asana does not allow me to chat if the other user or team members are online. I would love to have that feature instead of just commenting.

  • There's not much room to customize the way my task list looks (ex. hiding columns, etc).
  • Sometime it's difficult to sort through a super-deep page of conversations. It'd be nice to be able to"hide" posts that weren't relevant to me or highlight important information.
  • The place to unapprove a timesheet is very hidden. However, it's not something users do normally, so it's not a huge issue.

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.

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

Trello is a very simple board based project management tool. It lacks clear display and organization. On the other hand, Asana provides a much better layout on all devices including mobile phones. It is cross platform and has much more advanced features than Trello. Asana is also better because of the comments, likes and inter-communication options.

Personally WMJ is my least favorite project management program of those I've used in jobs past, but it was not my decision to use it and I believe our company has been utilizing it for many, many years. To be fair and put this in perspective, my interactions with WMJ probably only are utilizing about 25% of it's full features, and those are primarily for job assignment, time tracking, and setting scope of work. I do not have extensive experience with any of the rest of its many features as say, a project manager would. However for my uses, I often find the system cumbersome and while Platinum is a HUGE improvement on the GUI, there's still a lot of features I'd like to see, down to addressing various types of permissions to help facilitate the people who are doing the work that is being tracked in the system.
I think it's heavily geared toward the project management side of things which is great, but it can be cumbersome for the channels creating the work.
