There are lots of project management tools available nowadays. The choice ended up between Trello and Basecamp. Asana , JIRA and monday.com got a fair review but they didn't make it to the final list for several reasons (either way to complex or some UX issues or just too many options - good in some cases but not a good fit in this case).
Between Basecamp and Trello the battle was between ease of use and price. Basecamp packs a great set of features and if you are ready to move to an all in one solution: chat, file storage, and a PM tool, then @basecanp is by far the right choice. But since all the features are within one package that cannot be customized, moving to Basecamp but only using a part of the tool feels.. well.. not right. On the other hand Trello has the #kanban format that is just too easy to use and the price point for small and midsize team that no one can beat.
At the end, all solutions have a good fit in some cases. A better fit. But I think Trello can do the job in any case - it can fit with any scenario.
We use G Suite because of its cheap costs, easy management/administration, Excellent DKIM score, and everything that comes with it. We switched from Microsoft Office 365 because it doesn't work on Linux which is our OS of choice. Furthermore, G Suite does not lack any of the features that Office365 had to offer, I'd even say it offers more.
I use Trello, the macOS app for my personal projects and Google Chrome for work. At work, I have 7-8 active boards for various projects.
At first, I wasn't sure about Trello. The last company I worked at used Asana and I was really used to that. Before then I was using Jira. Now I ❤️Trello. It is amazing. Power-Ups™️ are so awesome!
For personal projects, I have used it for planning a move across town. I'm also using it for my Wedding. I got my fiancè almost loving it too.
I have been using asana for a couple years and I have nothing but good things to say... except that it doesn't have a unified inbox and task list across you Organization/Workspaces :(
Amazingly easy task/project management Meetings are great, Type your meeting agenda, notes & next actions directly into asana while the meetig is taking place. Integrates with Dropbox and Google Drive.
This is the easiest project management tool I have ever used and it is very easy to get other people to use it too. I haven't has as much success implementing a habit within an organization as with asana. The biggest problem with Project management systems is that organization members don't use them enough, not with asana. Mobile apps, speedy web app, and integrations galore make it easy for people to stay up to date.
Google Apps provides FANTASTIC value for it's price. It's an entire office suite for $50 a year. I have been using Google Docs for the last 7 years and it is constantly getting better. It was at the point in 2013 that when I bought my new computer I didn't buy Microsoft Office. I use Google Drive for all my business needs.
With many users in Google Apps for Business platform it is very easy to keep documents organized and manage what can and can't be shared with other organizations. All your conversations, docs, and even conference calls are safe within a managed application. You will have easy control over communication and documents within your organization.
Scribe brings emails to Slack, and suggests 'smart replies' to them. We chose GSuite as our first email integration, since anyone that uses Slack typically also uses GSuite / Gmail!
We keep ourselves out of email as often as possible, thanks to Asana. It keeps in the know, helps us manage sprints and hackathons, and helps us be transparent and productive.
Saves us a lot of time and headaches. Google groups is a powerful app. Gmail is just well thought-out and integrates well over multiple accounts.
You can design your customized logos with the help of the website first and then pay to get the ownership of the logo that you create later.
PrometheanTV uses the Google G Suite to provide basic business productivity services including, email, document sharing, calendars, etc.
I used Asana to manage the tasks, define scope of the project more over to create a learning path that will effect my project.
Internal communication, Google Docs, and Gmail. Google products are the best for startup. Cheap and cost effective per user.
The central hub where all of our projects live and breath. Without Asana, we would truly be lost.
I use asana for personal projects (to collaborate on event organization) on a weekly basis.
