Nifty

I've found myself recommending Nifty to other business owners as well as for personal use. I've personally found it to be invaluable when it comes to:
  • Daily / Weekly / Monthly / Quarterly recurring tasks
  • Creating templates for company processes such as new product creation, marketing strategy, on-boarding, quarterly goals, content management
  • Having forms zapped into a new task from multiple locations ensuring they're never overlooked
  • Having clear milestones and timelines for projects
  • Communicating on projects, tasks, and just in general
  • Assigning different components of projects to different people
  • Creating prior requirements that must be completed before completing the task

Trello

Trello is well suited for helping you visually organize your tasks and projects and to easily assign projects to others in your organization. It really excels in being able to track things on each card and see where you are in the progress and where others are on their project. It may not be appropriate for roles where there is no creativity involved.
Andrew Ayers | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pros

Nifty

  • An overview of project timelines and milestones.
  • One-on-one or group conversations.
  • Tracking the status of projects and tasks.
Candace Mitchell | 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
Wilbert Kramer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Nifty

  • Time Expense could be improved since we cannot edit the previous/past time logs entered.
  • Lacks expense management and Purchase order management functionality
  • Newest product updates are not always stable and I had to reach Nifty's support team a couple of times in the past to fix the issues with new updates e.g. our document management and meeting integrations had to be re-authorized
Darshil S | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

  • 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.

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

Nifty

There's no comparison. Nifty does what all of these do all in one place (with the exception of Slack's community aspect with hashtagging - not sure if Nifty can do this, never tried)Nifty even has the ability to import directly from many other platforms - I've personally imported projects from Trello and Asana, saving tons of time in migration.
Ashlie Pappas | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

Trello is easy for a non-technical person to use. Other management systems, like MS Project, frighten away less computer-savvy users. I've found this to be instrumental in getting volunteers to agree to step in and get fully involved with projects--particularly those that might span the entire year or involve many different pieces to completion.

Return on Investment

Nifty

  • Consistent communications.
  • Staying on project schedule.
  • Aligned projects with business strategies.
Candace Mitchell | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trello

  • The more time I put into developing our Trello systems, the more ROI we seem to get. We have to re-evaulate for each unique project, but it typically pays off.
  • We managed post-production for 3 seasons of TV on Trello - breaking each scene down into cards and a list being an episode. Once the organization was done, this saved massive amounts of time for my post-manager as he was able to direct new editors to the board and very easily explain how to jump in the mix and get started. We managed to accomplish a massive amount of work with a small team with a very simple project management system.
  • Trello has been difficult to implement in a broad-strokes sort-of way. For example - when onboarding a new project/client, we have to stop and think about how a given board needs to be set up, who needs to have permission to it, and where and how the information will be shared. We had to remove almost all conversation from Trello cards and move them to slack channels in order to keep up with all the conversation as it became far too convoluted. It's not as pre-defined or process-oriented as a basecamp, which doesn't always hurt, but it does often require more time to get started on a project.
