In the industry of project management and productivity tools, there are a huge amount of apps and services which all claim to do the same thing. While Asana is more oriented towards project management, it can also be used for productivity management too. It is a cloud-based web application which allows users to add tasks and assign them to team members, essentially managing a team and project. Out of all the software which I have tried in this area, Asana is truly one of the best. First of all, unlike other cloud-based web applications which usually limit the functionality of their free versions, most of Asana's main features are available within the free version. The main limitation is in the amount of users, which is quite a generous amount. In fact, the free version does not impose a limit on the amount of tasks which can be added, unlike other productivity software. This makes Asana perfect for small companies or teams. On the same point, Asana has decent integration with Harvest, so that tasks are automatically timed and added to the respective user's Harvest account. This is also ideal for freelancers, since the amount of hours can be automatically included in Harvest invoices. In terms of functionality, it is very quick and easy to add a new task and assign to a team member, which allows users to spend more time focusing on project management, rather than the tool itself. It is also possible to upload attachments of various media types to a project, similar to how Evernote handles media within notes. Users have access to a dashboard which uses charts and visual aids to indicate the progress of certain tasks and projects. This is excellent for measuring productivity of different team members and provides valuable information for project management. Furthermore, when assigning a task to a team member, it is possible to specify a deadline and track their progress.While Asana has a huge amount of features, users must dedicate some time to getting used to its layout and functionality. It does not have a steep learning curve, however it takes time to understand which features are required and how to use them. Another disadvantage of Asana is that users must have internet access to manipulate and view tasks and projects, since Asana is a web-based service.
In this year, we moved from Skype and Todoist to Glip, when I meet Bitrix, I wanted to change again, Now we are in an evaluation process. I find Bitrix a more robust product, it has some report to measure personal performance, "the pulse" of the companies brings "gamification" motivation to teams and the enterprise. It has a lot of tools, all of them integrated. I consider that our evaluation will finish in this year and maybe we will being moved to Bitrix in the first months of 2016.
I don´t like the approach that the on-premises version have more functions than the cloud one, should be nice to.
We worked with Bitrix24 for about a year. It is really customizable on the Sales Process stages. But the way it works it's not that good. In every step of a sales opportunity, you get a lot of important information. On bitrix24, you can get a lot of information on the Lead process, and when you convert that Lead into a Deal Opportunity, all the information get lost, since that "lead" still continues as a "lead". So if you have information from calls, or you want to listen to a past call before contacting them again, you can´t do it. Also, it makes it really hard to work on it, since it is mostly a Sales CRM. Which makes it difficult when you have to share information with other departments.The biggest problem I had with Bitrix24, was that they have the ability to let their CRM do everything you want to do. (or so they say). It´s just really complicated to do it. It lets you connect different landing pages to have everything there. But it doesn´t integrate, it just lets you see it.If you are able to have it work exactly how you want it, fast. Meaning that what you want to do, and what you are doing is quite simple, with a simple process and won't be really customized, it might be good. If not it would mean more time spent trying to figure out how to work with the CRM than actually using the CRM to work.

Bitrix24 is a very good intranet system, containing a great number of essential tools to cover any team’s or small company’s needs. The service is free for up to 12 users and 5GB of available cloud storage. If those numbers seem small, there is a professional plan as well.More about Bitrix24

The fact that QuickBase is customizable is a big selling point on this program. You can conduct almost all of your business utilizing this program. The program offers technical support and promises ease of use. However, in order to keep QuickBase from being too good to be true, the pricing creates a problem for many small and start up businesses that would otherwise be interested in utilizing the program for their business management needs. This set aside, if you have the resources to use QuickBase, it is a great program, easy to learn and easy to customize.More about QuickBase

What do you like best?We used Bitrix24 for a while on our team at work and it had some nice features like easy file sharing and communication amongst team members. It was relatively easy to set up. What do you dislike?Bitrix24 just wasn't right for us. We mainly used it for task management but the interface was a little clunky and just didn't work for our needs. We ended up switching to a much simpler solution, Asana, which works great for our needs.More about Bitrix24

Quickbase does not offer a phone number for customer service and sometimes take days to respond to e-mails. I often seem to know more about the program than the service representative I get - my boss says if I stay on the phone long enough with Quickbase I will figure a way around the problem while they tell me all the reasons something can't be done. I have found you can't respond to the surveys they send honestly if you want any help next time. The rep will scold you about how it negatively impacts their career and will likely not pick your email next time which means you wait that much longer before you get help next time. The reps like to call after office hours so they can show they attempted to respond quickly but you get no real help. The table-to-table relationships are so convoluted you will need a half-dozen fields and a weird relationship table to get information from one table to another, and then it won't arrive the way you want: It may be a drop-down that you have to click on four different fields to get the info from the other table. Ever need a simple number generator (x+1) for invoice numbers, job numbers, etc? Go somewhere else or hire someone to build you one (Excel users will cry). You get the response: we are working on that. Bottom Line: when developing a management program you will have time-sensitive issues that will make you wish for something better.More about QuickBase
