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.

Wrike is great for one off projects. It doesn't work well for ongoing projects or recurring projects. Highly complex Gantt charting is tough.

Pros

  • Cross-team communication is always a challenge, but Asana helps make information transparent and accessible to all members of the team.
  • It's easy to share with individuals outside of the organization and still control the flow of information.
  • Being able to link in other design resources like InVision prototypes is a huge time saver.
  • Integrating with Slack makes much of our necessary communication automatic.

  • Free for small groups with most features in tact

Cons

  • Asana does a lot, so it can sometimes be hard to find the right place to be to find the tools you need.
  • Organization is only as good as you make it and just because a system makes sense to the person that creates it does not mean it will make sense to anyone else.
  • It can be challenging to find the information you need via search.

  • Wrike worked very well for our small group. At the time, the scale-ability to be used with a larger company would not have been possible. The capabilities were not there.
  • At the time, we did not have the functionality to duplicate folders for future use. Wrike has subsequently added that feature now.
  • Having all of the notifications sent to Gmail and added to your calendar can get overwhelming quickly.

I just can't see us getting it off of Asana any time soon, despite the many headaches it has caused us. We have too much data in there, too much time & training invested into it, too much at stake to move. If we were just starting out today, fresh, I don't know for certain that I would absolutely go the same direction, but I *think* I still would. I just haven't seen anything better yet. Maybe if Podio's support staff hadn't treated me like a worthless nuisance to them, I might feel differently, but the fact is that their task management is simply inferior to Asana's. That can't be denied, and in fact Podio said it themselves: "Tasks are a simple function. They cannot be customized. Tasks in Podio can be used for quick to-do's for you and your team members." In our operation, however, prompt task completion is a big deal; one task can't be completed until another one is done first, and closing the gaps between those tasks is critical in meeting deadlines and servicing our customers. Asana gets us there, the others don't.

I would continue the use of this for small agencies and startups. Moving up to a larger agency, I believe there are better options out there. There are few project management systems that offer as much in content and features that satisfy both left and right brain thinking. Using the tools for checking on tasks was one of our favorite because we could see actual work performance. The Track Time feature was not available when we had it, but it looks like a nifty tool to help evaluate task timing for billing.

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).

Their support was done mainly through email and depending on their work lord, could take longer to get a response. But the response was still within a reasonable time frame and courteous every time.

Wrike does a great job of provide a breadth of videos for learning their program. This includes a 'getting started' sett of videos along with a collection of more in depth videos to assist more experienced users. Combined with their excellent chat support learning wrike is easy and it includes easy access to best practices.

Stick with it and resist the temptation to slack in your use of project management software.

Alternatives Considered

We had used Mavenlink in other departments but for the Design, Product Development and R&D teams, Asana made much more sense and we have not regretted the switch for them. The organization is key when forming ideas and doing a bunch of research, it is difficult to keep all of these things organized. This was our main goal when we chose Asana, we had heard good things and wanted those benefits for our team.

Comparing Wrike to Asana- at the time, Asana was very new to the task-type software and did not have a lot of the features that it has today. Wrike has offers more flexibility and better integration with other programs. Wrike is not as robust as Salesforce and Central Desktop's SocialBridge but then they both come at a much high price point. Both of those software programs were more than what we needed. Wrike was a great blend of price and features for the small mobile team that we had.

  • Wrike has provided my team with increased employee efficiency. Projects are easily added to the system and assigned, and team members can discuss issues or questions within a project, without having to have time-consuming meetings.
  • The customer service within our department has improved significantly due to Wrike. Projects have clear due dates, reminders can be sent in emails, and the Wrike dashboard is a fantastic dynamic task list of what needs to be done and when.
  • Communication has seen a huge improvement, resulting in less time wasted fact checking, or projects having to be revisited due to misinformation. Information is submitted with a project, and team members can ask questions within the project if they need clarity.
