Considered Both Products
Asana
Chose Asana
Asana is a great balance of simplicity and robustness. JIRA is simply too robust for my team's needs - it is more appropriate for a software team. We did not need the capabilities to customize automated workflows. Our development process is waterfall, so a PM software centered …
Chose Asana
Asana is extremely easy to use and gives us all the functionality we need in order to stay on task and meet deadlines. Trello seemed a little elementary compared to Asana, and Wrike seemed a little more complicated than our team needed. Asana is a good balance and has been …
Chose Asana
Asana is so much better than Wrike. Wrike has a lot more customizability, but it's too much. Asana keeps things very simple and can include a litany of integrations to help me get the most out of my needs. Wrike, from what I remember, also uses more resources from my computer. …
Chose Asana
1. JIRA is more focused on technical developers. Hard for those non-technical users.
2. Wrike was good for project management assignment but lousy for communication after task assignment.
3. Trello was good for brain-storming a project but lousy for tasks assignment and …
Chose Asana
Wrike is similar but JUST a bit more cumbersome in every way. So if something takes 1-2 clicks in Asana it will take 3-4 in Wrike. Just enough of a lift that it makes it hard for people to just get started working. Instead, you must change your employees to think the way …
Chose Asana
I used Wrike a few years ago. It was just okey, less configurable, harder to navigate than Asana. Maybe they improved their user experience over the years. I have also used Jira Software (not being on a development team) to structure projects and work sprints. This tool was …
Chose Asana
We tried it as one my developers swore up and down how good it was at the startup... well it crashed in our office, since we didn't end up working the way they did. We are more of a dev ops company than a social media or open source
Chose Asana
I liked that Asana was easier to use, cost less and seemed like they were adding features all of the time.
Chose Asana
Asana hit our sweet spot of easy to try, appropriate pricing for our mid size non-profit team, flexibility, and features. Lots of other platforms have very similar features organized in other ways, but Asana made sense and was fun to work with right off the bat. there were …
Chose Asana
Both software are very similar to each other, even in the economic factor, the reason we choose Asana over the others is because of its usability, the software is very easy to use which helps to get the most out of it, in addition to the integrations that provide Asana with …
Chose Asana
We “beta” tested several softwares across our company. Asana was a great fit for our small corporate team. But when we rolled it out company wide, it didn’t stick. We eventually ended up using Airtable - which has worked out well for us.
Chose Asana
I like how easy it was to set things up. It was fairly intuitive to setup. Its main features are pretty good. And the main thing is, they are listening to the customer's needs and have built new features that add further value.
Chose Asana
Keyboard control. The ability to view and change the task without opening a new page.
Wrike
Chose Wrike
Wrike sits just below Notion for me in terms or ranking because Notion is much more customisable from a user side of things. Wrike at an organisation level, however, is clear, templated and consistent.

Previously I have used Asana and Trello in other roles and these fell just …
Chose Wrike
In my opinion, both Asana and Trello are simple and easy to navigate. That said, in my experience, both are lacking advanced project management features that Wrike possesses.
Chose Wrike
I used Asana very briefly, but Wrike definitely exceeds my expectations in project management software.
Chose Wrike
Asana is a really good competitor when it comes to project management. We still utilize Netsuite for billing and resource management. Ultimately, we selected Wrike for a multitude of reasons: user friendly interface, highly customizable templates, ability to seamlessly …
Chose Wrike
I prefer Wrike over Asana. Wrike has more developed and advanced collaboration features. Wrike is better suited for teams to work together on projects, whereas Asana is more limited to just tracking progress and project status.
Chose Wrike
Wrike is SO much more robust than Asana. Asana feels like a PM tool for teams without a PM. It is very limiting in what it allows you to do, while Wrike is extremely configurable and lets you set things up exactly how you need. There are more options for automation, the custom …
Chose Wrike
Wrike has a cleaner dashboard and overall look and feel than Asana. Wrike has more ways to view and openly chat and tag users in communication vs tasks. Wrike has a better template for projects and folders.
Chose Wrike
Wrike allows users to send emails directly from the platform. This feature enables seamless communication by capturing all relevant email correspondence within the Wrike system. This integration helps to centralize communication, making it easier for team members to track and …
Chose Wrike
Overall, it is very similar to Asana more so than Basecamp. The concept is really similar. The difference is I've been able to dive much deeper into Wrike and utilizing the task features where for Asana for me was much more for casual and personal use rather than corporate. But …
Chose Wrike
I selected Wrike to keep a log of the work that I do. The organization that I work for recently adopted Asana. I am learning to use Asana to interact with other staff members, but I will continue to use Wrike for my work logs.
Chose Wrike
We had only evaluated Monday and Asana on a surface level before we chose Wrike, so never went to try a trial, but from what we saw in terms of functionality and customizability they both didn't seem to match up with our varied needs as a very diverse company dealing with …
Chose Wrike
I think the ease of use and cross collaboration is really useful here against other platforms. Also one of the biggest differences is actually really helpful how the app stores files and images which makes them useful to look for previous images (especially when you upload a …
Chose Wrike
They're similar products but Wrike seems more suited for complex projects although I personally find it less intuitive.
Chose Wrike
I really liked Wrike in comparison to monday.com. I was using a higher version of monday.com and in several areas it fell short. It required lot of scrolling and sub tasks in monday.com was disliked by everyone in our company. Wrike is intiutive and really easy to use. It …
Chose Wrike
As I said before, the comparison of between versions of file uploaded is really a good feature of Wrike that I havent' experience yet with other Task Management systems that I have used. Aside from that, it's easier for me to collaborations between task laid out in Wrike rather …
Chose Wrike
Wrike's layout is way easier to understand especially when onboarding. The dashboard layout is a huge strength for Wrike. I see exactly what I need for my day/week/month with a glance. Most other lack the time tracking integration that is easy to help understand what projects …
Chose Wrike
Wrike has a lot more capabilities!
Chose Wrike
When balancing needs of Roadmap Planning, Program Management, Project Management, Work Management, Queue Management, Ticket Management, I think Wrike hits the perfect balance of usability and configurability with the power to scale effectively while maintaining governance, all …
Chose Wrike
Except Todoist, which is more geared toward a personal to do list (rather than team project management), every other similar product I've used is better than Wrike in every way. They're all more user friendly and intuitive and easier to visualize project progress.
Chose Wrike
I prefer Wrike as I find the interface more user friendly and the customization of it endless - making it work for us exactly how we need it
Chose Wrike
Wrike is competitive by offering a wide range of integrations with other popular tools and apps, allowing you to sync data, collaborate in familiar settings, and maximize efficiency. Its integration with apps like

Asana fixed team issues like project transparency and communication, improved team performance, and enhanced office and mobile productivity. Upper management can solve project management issues quickly, and new hires can use the tool immediately. Asana's surveys simplify research and data collection. Its free trial, free plan, or paid SaaS subscription gives small and large teams the tools and centralized console to work through project tasks efficiently. Due to its complexity, Asana can be overwhelming at first.

My organization used Google Sheets to work with subbies, but we've since switched to Wrike. It is user friendly, has formulas and customizable fields. Wrike has been a lifesaver because instead of sharing Google Sheets with external customers and typically they messing up - deleting formulas, users can simply fill out a request form without logging into Wrike . All details are displayed in a table view, making management much easier.

Pros
Asana
  • Through it, we were able to communicate and cooperate with the rest of the team to complete the work in the required manner and at the appropriate time.
  • Available for free on Android and iPhone.
  • Asana has a simple and easy user interface
Read full review
Wrike
  • Wrike has been consistent in emailing any updates or changes to each person involved in each task.
  • Wrike has a simple to navigate website, with quick access to each task.
  • Wrike keeps all data files located at the top of the task for quick reference, which makes it easier for each team member to find.
  • Wrike adds date tags as well as any edited or deleted notes where we are able to cross-reference any major changes that may have been made.

Cons
Asana
  • Asana is not really a project management tool, it is good for simple projects only
  • UI has some glitches (doesn't save preferences, etc.)
  • Integration with other tools (Office 365, MS Project)
  • No reminders if the working period you entered is on holidays

Wrike
  • The email notifications that are automatically sent from Wrike when something is done are easy for users to miss or ignore.
  • Reporting can be limited. You have to create workarounds for collecting/storing the name of the person submitting the form in instances where they do not have their own Wrike license.
  • A more user-friendly interface, especially for those less familiar with project management software, would enhance overall accessibility.

Asana
  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

I wish that Wrike had more drag and drop functionality that would be connected to assignee and also I wish that the finish date of a task would update to the date where you checked completed. It does not do that. Also finishing a task doesn't move the start date of the next task it "protects your time in that way", but our management team wants us to quickly see what we have down the pipeline rather than having to scroll down the list of upcoming tasks.

Usability
Asana
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.

Wrike, overall, is pretty easy to setup and use. I still find challenges in changing milestone dates but our programs / date changes are different than industry standard so that is partly the issue. We love the Excel look along with the dashboards! There are also built in analytics that really assist in seeing where the projects are!

Over two years of (almost) daily usage without outages. Don't remember any errors. I give it 9 only because some Wrike plugins (for online document edit) are based on NPAPI architecture. These types of plugins are being phased out in new browsers, and NPAPI plugins are disabled by default in recent versions of Chrome so you have to do some browser adjustments when you switch browsers or move to another computer.

Wrike tasks loads fine, but I hate clicking files and wait for a bit of time since it is powerpoint or word, Wrike assumes I want to open those on Wrike. My suggestion is to link it to office 365 so we do not need Wrike based decoder for PPTX and DOCX

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).

Support is very quickly and they want to solve problems actively. When I need additional info I can use community forum, when I've an issue I can use support form to get help.

There are a lot of bells and whistles in Wrike, and not all of it is easy or intuitive to understand once it's plopped in your lap. It's easier when there are a few choice people who understand Wrike as a platform and articulate it in such a way where it makes it easy to pass it along to others in the group

I like how extensive the capabilities are for Asana. With other softwares it seems there are many things lacking. I feel like Asana is also a very user friendly platform and aesthetically pleasing which is important in a modern office. We have many young people entering our workspace and it is important to have software that is ahead of the times in functionality and efficiency.

I have not used other products except Microsoft Teams channels with file sharing and standard sharing from Adobe, text and email messaging, and Zoom/gotomeeting sharing. This is the first product that I have used that had the functionality and platform where the sharing is simplistic. It is better than standard sharing through email or other simple forms because everything stays together.

The sky is the limit for what can be done in Wrike. We started with 1 use case and within 5 months we migrated several key business practices over to Wrike because they were easier to manage. Use cases so far: process improvement, management review, corrective actions, maintenance requests, month-end financial closing, and document management. As we grow, it's easy to imagine putting even more into Wrike where it becomes a cornerstone for how we do business

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.

  • Adding versions of a document streamlines our editing process, preventing us from reviewing outdated versions of a document. This feature saves time, especially when working with external contributors who may not know Wrike well.
  • Blueprints save time because we do not have to manually enter all the details when scheduling a recurring project.
