LoadSpring

LoadSpring is great for managing licenses so that a user who hasn't been utilizing the software can be placed inactive so the license isn't being occupied. Managing services and applications is great. You can easily change access through the management portion of the service. Uptime is also very good.

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

LoadSpring

  • Management of sessions.
  • Account/license management.
  • Reliability.
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

LoadSpring

  • Self-service account reactivation.
  • Integration of instructions on a per application level.
  • Built in linked help for companies using the software.

  • 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.

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.

LoadSpring support is very quick to respond. They have self-service for support which is great for quick fixes on the end-user side of things. They will respond with a good solution and if they need further assistance from an administrator, and they email them so they can assist the end-user with their issue.

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

LoadSpring

LoadSpring has a great up-time compared to our old hosting service. We haven't had many outages and very few issues while running our concurrent sessions. Automated license management has been great so our active licenses stay very low. I wasn't involved with the purchase and migration but I feel this was the better option.

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

LoadSpring

  • Great license manager.
  • Has great up-time for hosting our application.
  • Self service account management is non-existent.

Trello

  • More streamlined team communication. Rather than spending time and effort getting lost in emails or instant messages, we have a shared knowledge bank of ideas and tasks within Trello that free us up to focus on other parts of our job.
  • Better team collaboration. With the sharing structure of Trello, there is an easy pathway for the transmission of ideas without having to even think about it.
  • A more open dialog between team members. Trello provides a forum where our team members can share ideas that they may not have felt comfortable doing otherwise.
