Overall Satisfaction with Asana

Several departments within our company use Asana. Each in a varying capacity. Our design team uses Asana to organize everything from basic ideas to fully approved designs. It is so nice to be able to log on and quickly identify the status of a project, who is assigned to it and any updates you may have missed. Also, the assigning of tasks to individuals is very convenient and eliminates any opportunity for miscommunication or doubling effort resulting in mistakes or wasted time. It is very visual which is extremely user-friendly for the environment in which we use its capabilities.
  • Multiple users can access the program at once without stepping on each other's toes or having to wait until someone is out a project to add something. It is definitely a group friendly program.
  • We like how visually pleasing it is. It is not at all intimidating to first-time users as it is very user-friendly. You can quickly find what you need and become comfortable with its features and functions.
  • I personally like being able to assign different tasks to different employees and be able to receive feedback and progress directly from that assigned person as well as view it myself.
  • I personally have not found anything that I would recommend at this time. However, I have noticed that the older generation of employees struggle with its style where the computer savvy and younger generation thrive. I have no idea how Asana could overcome that obstacle.
  • Our design group is working more fluidly and productive as a team with Asana's help.
  • Asana keeps our many projects organized and on point. Improved productivity with easy monitoring
  • The employees enjoy the program as much as the managers do. It allows each person to move at their own pace.
We had used Mavenlink in other departments but for the Design, Product Development and R&D teams, Asana made much more sense and we have not regretted the switch for them. The organization is key when forming ideas and doing a bunch of research, it is difficult to keep all of these things organized. This was our main goal when we chose Asana, we had heard good things and wanted those benefits for our team.
If you have a team of employees that you would like to view their progress, assign different tasks to various employees based on their specific talents or qualifications and have all projects tracked while doing so, this is the program for you. It has options to hold ideas, images, mood boards, as well as your products being developed and put on the market. It keeps everyone in the department up to speed and not just the one person in charge of it and their supervisor.
