Chose Asana
I believe that Asana is more professional than Trello. I used Trello a long time ago, but it looked more suitable for a student project rather than for a professional team or business environment. I believe it has great features to help companies in different stages and of …
Chose Asana
Trello's look and feel could be more attractive for the creatives but Asana provides a more "logical" approach which is appealing to the technical types. It feels like Trello provides more degrees of freedom of use which could make collaboration a bit less structured and could …
Zapier
Chose Zapier
Zapier is by far the best of any services like that I've seen. I really do recommend it to every small business I know!
Chose Zapier
While IFTTT provides some of the same functionality as Zapier, it is much less robust and doesn't have the same support or library of resources available. If you have any quantity of tasks you need to automate, Zapier is far superior and the price point is very reasonable for …
Chose Zapier
Probably IFTTT comes closest to covering the features of Zapier. However, Zapier appears to have a lot more apps that can be connected and they provide a lot more educational support on their blog and emails.
Chose Zapier
Zapier integrates with many more apps than IFTTT and I find it does not have as many glitches. For some reason, not all my "applets" in IFTTT would work all the time, whereas with Zapier I have not run into the same issue. If you are a business, invest in Zapier over IFTTT to …

Asana
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.

Zapier
Zapier is perfect for simple integrations and setting up generally low-volume accounts that require very little configuration and maintenance. For a distributed structure where a client/outside party is responsible for billing, it’s easy to create an account, put them on a low-cost plan, configure a simple integration and teach them how to alter the setup. Its webhook-based setup is perfect for many simple use cases and there’s no reason to use a more complex or expensive solution.
However, if you have integrations that are increasingly complex (involve parsing, multiple non-linear steps, the integration of non-native APIs), significant in overall volume/data or require additional features (time delays for API limits), Zapier likely isn’t your best choice. Other integration platforms offer higher levels of customization and capability, though they’re typically significantly more complex and expensive.

  • Being able to turn off one leg of a Zap without having to delete it or turn the whole Zap off
  • Not all fields populate when using certain aspects of Salesforce, but that could be an SF issue

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.

Zapier is very user-friendly. They walk you through each step of the zap-building process in an orderly and easy to understand way. Each step of the zap is tested before moving onto the next step. For simple zaps, you can have them up and running within minutes. For more complicated zaps, it may take some experimentation, but Zapier is there to help you troubleshoot.

Support Rating
Asana
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).

Before we purchased Zapier, I contacted support and asked them if Zapier could support my intended workflow (this is actually a selection on their support form - awesome). Within 2 hours, I was contacted by a support team member who seemed sure it would work, but granted me premium access for 2 weeks to try it out for myself. Sure enough, it did! Ever since then, support has replied rapidly to any problems I have experienced and answered my questions within a few sentences.

Asana
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.

  • 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.

  • It saves us hours of time every week being able to connect services automatically.
  • It enables automations to happen that would not otherwise be possible at all.
  • It allows us to choose other software for specific purposes without the limitations of only the built-in connectivity.
