CRM like Asana

Today any startup and organization require productive applications like Evernote or Dropbox to be more efficient, work as a team and keep staff connected and synchronized, so today we’ll talk about Asana, an application for web and mobile devices that is beginning to receive greater attention.

Who is behind Asana?

Asana was created in February of 2009 by Dustin Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein.

Currently with a team of more than 100 people from its offices in San Francisco, New York and Dublin, Asana provides its services under the slogan: “The modern way to work together”.

The new image of Asana was filed September 30, 2015, this change is aimed to facilitate the tasks of monitoring and the accomplishment of objectives.

A�What is Asana?

Asana is a great task and project management tool, it allows teams to share, plan, organize, and track the progress of tasks which each member who is working on any project. Asana is a very simple and easy to use in web application, and without doubt, this is one of the best tools for task management that we have seen so far.

A�Prices and plans available:

Asana offers a free plan that includes the following:

  • A maximum of 15 members in a team.
  • Tasks, projects, and unlimited conversations.
  • A basic desktop.

Paid plans under the form of Asana Premium are scalable based on the number of users that you want to include in your team. Prices start with the plan from 5 members and more, and includes the following:

  • All the options of the free plan, and more…
  • Function of privacy in teams and projects

  • Wrike:

This is a great alternative to Asana to improve the way in which you work.

Wrike excels when your team needs to work on various complex projects at the same time.

Also provides vital functions for the management of projects to a high level and detailed implementation planning: Gantt charts, management of resources, critical path, budget control, file sharing, advanced tools integration and much more: all in a very easy to use interface.

Wrike features the work of the form in which you need to see it: view task that allows you to see the earrings in the form of a list; Table view with the classic design of work schedule; Gantt diagrams to visualize the schedule of the project; Workflow activities for updates live from work; and view of workload, especially for resource management.

Real-time collaboration

Everyone can do work together in Wrike. The tasks are updated in real-time, so that people can work on a same task simultaneously and collaborate with other teams.

  • Trello:

Is a free tool that allows us to organize our daily tasks and projects in a way that is easy, quick and without forgetting the smallest details.

The organization is done through cards, which may have any kind of information. You can add tasks to perform, dates of termination, comments, attachments and much more information that allows full view of tasks and projects.

One of the main features of Trello is collaboration. Trello is you can work on computer through slates, in which each of the members can collaborate in real time. When any member of the team carries out a change in the project, this is reflected immediately in the slate to be seen immediately by the remaining members of the team.

  • Wunderlist:

One of the best features of Wunderlist is that it is cross-platform. And in addition with version 2 now all applications use native technology and shows the difference with the old version.

Install the software on all your devices, and you’ll have all your tasks synchronized beyond where you are. Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, Android, Web…!

Although the application may be cross-platform in a situation where you cana��t access your account or the web and you can only send a mail. Why I love the apps that have an Inbox mail. Just send an email to your mail from Wunderlist always a new task waiting for you at home.

  • Slack:

This business communication tool works as a team chat, as managers, we will be able to customize our chat channel, available on Mac, windows, android, and ios.

Also can incorporate different Chat channels (which can be accessed by all members of a team), as well as private groups also incorporates the possibility to send private messages to all users that are part of the chat, it allows us to share documents stored in the cloud using Google drive.

It also has integration with Dropbox to add files, also to support other files that have been uploaded, and has integration with other tools like Trello, the one we mentioned before.


In summary, in Asana we can create different projects, create tasks to perform within each project and assign them to the companions that should run it, each member of the team, can comment their tasks that have assigned and give by completed those that have been completed.

In few words, Asana will help a lot in the management of projects and also tasks. And as we could see therea��s a lot of options to use, the thing is compare options and choose the best choice to you.
