Hive

Hive will fit right in to any workflow that manages multiple projects. It's also a great fit for collaboration on a per-project basis as external users can collaborate with paid users. Across a very large team it would take more planning on how to fit multiple workflows and groups into the workspace but it can be done.

Trello

Trello is great for tracking the progress of projects that have specific completion dates or tasks that must be finished in specific orders. We've used it for fundraising projects and event planning, not to mention planning of specific work projects. Trello's flexibility makes it so easy to set up and share new boards with interested parties.

Pros

Hive

  • Very intuitive user interface that makes project management, tracking and collaboration easy. Multiple project visualisation options (Gantt, Kanban, calendars, tables)
  • Great integration with a large number of tools
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

  • Easy color categorization of the "Cards" (which can represent anything from projects to tasks)
  • Ease of use overall - you can divide work into columns and move it from column to column depending on status
  • You can create multiple boards, which are spaces to store tasks (for different work contexts, or even private boards)
  • You can easily share boards with another person
  • You can easily assign tasks (Cards) to persons
  • You can store information in cards, like files and short format text

Cons

Hive

  • You can't move urgent actions to the top.
  • It takes a little too much time to load up on the desktop version.
  • There's definitely room for improvement in keyboard shortcuts.

  • Swim Lanes - they are nonexistent. There is a third-party tool to add them but it's buggy as all get out
  • View - I am not sure how to do it but I really wish I didn't have to pick between viewing all cards with no detail or one with all detail. Maybe the ability to collapse and expand?
  • Integrations - It would be amazing if I could easily pop action items from Gmail over to Trello, but right now I can only copy text or upload screenshot attachments.

I am very likely to renew Trello, because it doesn't cost anything to do so. I am also very likely to use Trello's upgraded features in the future because a lot of my team's data is stored on there and they have already gotten used to the platform. Trello is very easy for new team members to pick up, making the onboarding and usability very streamlined.

I love Hive so much because it has made a huge difference regarding team communication and project management at the same time. We experienced almost no bugs and in the few cases that we did have some trouble, the customer service team was very responsive and solved our problems very quickly.

Overall, Trello is a great tool to use. It's very user-friendly, very powerful and we've set it up to work well for our team. I've recommended it to others who need something free or very cheap and it's worked well for them too. If you're wanting something with more muscle, then I'd suggest looking at either monday.com or Airtable.

Our CSR is easily accessible and they have support built into the app itself. They also have a pretty robust support site. We also took advantage of the free trial and learned so much by putting Hive through the paces and figuring out the best way to mold it to our needs.

I have never needed to contact Trello's customer support team. For the most part, the app is pretty self-explanatory. I have used their help center and find it really useful, particularly their Getting Started guides, which cover everything from general information to feature deep dives and best practices. The help center is available in six different languages and the Trello Community is there to answer questions along with Trello Support.

For our small business, getting a few of us started well on Trello was the key, I think. As long as a couple of us were really comfortable with the interface, we could lead others and help them with any questions. From now on, anyone who works with us just naturally uses Trello for information sharing - it's just part of what we do.

Alternatives Considered

Hive

I would say that in comparison to Asana, Hive is a better interface an UI. I think Asana is more robust in terms of what it can do in conjunction with Confluence but I think Hive is a better entry-level model for new employees. Hive is much simpler and more straight forward and its integration with Slack is preferred.

Trello

I would say Trello is very well suited for my team's needs as we are relatively small in size but frequently scale up based on the project's size and needs. We tend to use it at a basic level for organizing internal tasks and to-dos, but also develop large complicated boards when need be. It doesn't seem like other systems (like Basecamp) scale very well and really require a more consistent type of workload to make the best use of them.

Return on Investment

Hive

  • Positive ROI comes from our whole team being on the same board. We used to have separate boards for each group.
Cameron Michael Rhoads | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

  • Trello helps me maintain visibility into what my international teams are doing - even if we can't be in the same room together, we can be on the same board together.
  • Trello helps us manage WIP so as to reduce the amount of things we are trying to do simultaneously.
  • (Negative) Our teams often use Trello as a crutch for traditional communication - instead assuming people will detect changes on the board on their own.
