Asana is perhaps the most dominant name in task management software, and the company is growing at a record pace.
That’s largely because Asana provides a lot of practical benefits. It’s easy to use, even for the non-tech savvy. And it’s great for international, work-from-home teams who need to stay in sync.
I know because I’ve used Asana a LOT, and still do with a couple clients.
That said, Asana isn’t the end all be all. And you might be able to save $$ by looking into alternative solutions, some of which you might already have! Others that won’t set you back as much.
