Here’s what you should know before choosing Asana as a work management tool for your company!
Asana is not industry specific, it is generic. Don’t expect to be able to customize the interface to match your specific industry, like replace the word “task” with “order”. You’ll have to play with the cards given to you.
It is purposefully simple to use. Compared to Wrike or Jira for example, you can’t customize much. But it also means you can use it right away without spending hours doing configuration.
Millions of people are using it, including strong leaders in many industries. We have rarely seen anyone walk away from Asana because it did not fit their company’s needs.
They have an amazing roadmap and make regular improvements. However, they don’t openly share the roadmap, and sometimes seem to go slower than the competition. But they always remain stable and bug-free. They can scale to hundreds of thousands of users in the same company.
Asana was made for teams. You can use it starting with a team of two, but they don’t yet have a solo plan (yet?).
from @Paul_Grobler “Asana is not something you just install and does everything for you. You have to use it to work for you.”
from @Doug_Baden1 “The strength of the mobile offerings on tablet and phone which make it even better.”
from @Doug_Baden1 “In addition to enhancing internal teams, it also make interaction on tasks and projects with people outside your organization easy and effective.”
from @Kazimierz_Krol “Asana cannot view tasks from multiple workspaces”
