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.

It seems to suit our purpose well - ie storing of artwork, brand livery, collateral, documentation, and images.

Pros

  • Asana allows you to organize your task through a list or through boards.
  • Asana has a great user interface so it's easy for you to locate the projects and the pieces of tasks under each project.
  • Asana's "My Tasks" feature allows you to see all the tasks assigned to you and you can re-arrange them according to priority level.
  • Asana allows me to attach files to each task which allows us to see the progress of the project. It allows you to comment on the current files and the owner of the task can revise it then according to your instructions.

  • Easy to navigate without too much training
  • Stores what you need in one place

Cons

  • It's not that easy to change or update the name of the title. You need to click the arrow down button beside the title to edit. I believe it should be easier like just click on the current title and change it.
  • I would like Asana to put a feature like Facebook and LinkedIn where you know who's online and who's not online. Because if the person-in-charge is online you can communicate with him real time rather than waiting for him to respond later on.
  • I would be glad too if they add a voice call or video call feature so that if you have concerns and the person you would like to talk to is online you can speak with him right away. Some comments or revisions just needs to be explained through a call to eliminate misunderstandings.

  • The UI is a little clunky
  • We are missing the functionality to quickly add metadata to the contents of a whole folder at once
  • The search function can be a little hit or miss

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 - great but a bit young. Good integration points. I think it could be a good too to integrate with. Some people enjoy the KanBan type view and Asana doesn't have that currently. Basecamp - more project manager focused but also a good integration point. JIRA - Better for support and bug management than task management on a project/enterprise level

Seems to have similar features to other NZ local options we investigated. But what appealed was its integration with Workfront which we use.

Return on Investment

  • While an ROI study on something like this is rarely done, I'd go with a success/failure comparison. Every project I've used Asana on has been successful (and yes, all other factors were the same). Nearly EVERY project using old tools such as excel, MS project, powerpoint reporting has failed, missed deadlines, mis-communicated scope and task management.
  • From an engineering perspective, developers and managers love it because there's clear visibility into what needs to be done and what is being done and by whom. Getting developers and managers to agree on almost anything is difficult and Asana accomplishes this.

  • Reduces the risk of not knowing where a certain asset is stored
  • No more file retrieval fees
  • Everything located in one place that everyone can access
  • But ..... it’s a painful process locating all your files and setting it up. No fault of the DAM
