Assembla Workspaces

Assembla works well when you are working with multiple groups or entities. We dealt with different time zones, different levels of involvement with the projects, etc so this allows for us to have responses back in a quicker fashion. It also helps us clue in the appropriate people and rely less on following multiple email chains

Gemini

Gemini is well suited to help track issues and change requests, projects, bugs, time logs, etc. It is less appropriate for reporting needs or general office management needs.

Pros

  • Provided tickets that could be assigned to multiple users within the organization and our partner so that the appropriate people were involved.
  • The ability to escalate and prioritize requests so that the most important tasks were getting handled first.
  • A reference point to go back to prior tickets to use previous solutions for any new problems. It created a history for us.
  • Ability to work on projects at our own pace.

  • Gemini offers flexible framework that allowed IT to build a workflow based process. IT change requests were divided into several buckets: New Change Requests group for business units to submit requests for enhancements and new project ideas, Pending Change Requests for approved projects that are waiting for IT resources, Application Development where we track active projects, Defect Tracking where bugs are tracked during testing and finally Release Management where requests for deployment are tracked.
  • Gemini allows to create custom fields and add them to View, Edit and Add screens. This flexible model allowed us to track additional information on the project such as IT Point of Contact, System Name, Team Name, Testing dates, etc.
  • Gemini has flexible email notification model that allows to keep business customers informed on the project progress. Whenever comment is added by project manager email alerts goes out anyone that is set to watch project progress.

Cons

  • The ability to export the tasks or run metrics on them.
  • Mobile ability.

  • It would be useful for Gemini to offer a mobile-friendly version.
  • It would be helpful for Gemini to provide more granular control over email notification options. Currently, we cannot turn off update type emails
  • Gemini could improve homepage design to provide a dashboard for all projects in the system.

Alternatives Considered

Assembla was actually chosen by our vendor so we did not have a say in the selection. However, the product more than served the need we had for better distribution and completion of tasks. It has an easy to view interface, user friendly and efficient. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a way to manage ongoing projects.

Gemini is more cost-effective than Project Server. It is easy to configure and easy to use

Return on Investment

  • We were able to spend less time tracking down the status of projects.
  • We could become more self-sufficient on reviewing prior resolutions to help with current problems.
  • Tasks were responded to quickly because we did not have to email one person, wait for an out of office email and then try someone else. Our task got assigned to the next available person.
