In this video, I talk about what makes Asana unique and how it compares to other project management tools.
- Asana is intuitive and easy to use.
- It's been around since 2008. Good team and well-funded.
- Good rate of development. New features come out pretty regularly.
- One of Asana's strengths is that it is very holistic when it comes to helping you to plan your time. It's not just a project management tool. It helps you to visualise and plan the big picture. A lot of other tools like Trello, Monday and Basecamp show you your projects but they don't have this same emphasis on the virtual hierarchy of your work.
- A lot of tools only have one view (e.g. Trello » Board. Monday » list). Asana lets you create lists, boards, timelines and calendars which you can switch between any time.
- Very customisable. With different views, custom fields, rules, forms and templates. It can be personalised for your business workflows.
- Asana strikes a really important balance between ease of use and power. Where some tools are too lightweight and don't have the power that you need to manage complex projects, and others so feature-heavy that they're impossible to navigate, Asana makes it easy to get up and running and has the power you need to manage complex projects and workflows.
- Think of it as the operating system for your business. It's where communication happens. You can't really do this as well with tools like Monday which are more like spreadsheets.
