        As a small startup we are very conscious about picking up the tools we use to run the project. After suffering with a mess of using at the same time Trello , Slack , Telegram and what not, we arrived at a small set of tools that cover all our current needs. For product management, file sharing, team communication etc we chose Basecamp and couldn't be more happy about it. For Customer Support and Sales Intercom works amazingly well. We are using MailChimp for email marketing since over 4 years and it still covers all our needs. Then on payment side combination of Stripe and Octobat helps us to process all the payments and generate compliant invoices. On techie side we use Rollbar and GitLab (for both code and CI). For corporate email we picked G Suite. That all costs us in total around 300$ a month, which is quite okay.

        #Kanban

        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 Nextcloud for company-file-management, personal work-documents and for collaborative work (through collabora), organize our #TODOs, that are not covered by the Bugtracker. Existing solutions either were very expensive ( Google Drive ), missed a lot of features ( Trello ) or were pretty much overloaded with features ( Wekan within Sandstorm ).

        That made Nextcloud ud our natural fit for our company management and we're convinced of its integrations and flexibility.

        Review ofAsanaAsana

        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.

        We originally decided to use Trello because GitHub Issues were getting way too crowded and overwhelming. Also, GitHub Issues are great for detailed bits of work, but they're not so great at high-level tasks or buckets of work. The milestones stuff in there just doesn’t cut it.

        We love Trello. It's great because it’s super flexible. Almost to a fault. The one thing I wish it had: velocity. Not sure why they don’t add that, but I would so use it. Right now we just add an estimate of hours at the top of the description field. I also wish they had a more robust Calendar and concept of time. Trying to get Trello to act like a product planning tool is almost impossible. And using other tools is a nightmare. So we’re kind of stuck using Trello as-is. But Trello as-is is > all the other PM tools we’ve tried (and we’ve tried a lot).

        The various projects that we'll have on the go at any point in time, within the R&D team, are internal projects that will prove long term benefits. We use Trello to track individual tasks that comprise those projects, and work with them in an Agile approach.

        원랜 Github issue로 이슈트래킹을 했었는데 첫 개발땐 워낙 바뀌는것도 많고 빨리해야될것도 많고 해서 트렐로로 유연하게 관리하니까 좋음. 앞으로 사용자가 생기고 소스코드 풀면 github issue로 관리할 생각

        Trello is the core of our workflow. All tasks to be done go on Trello, and whenever you have to work on something, you go on Trello to check out what you could work on. And it works perfectly for us.

        I use Trello for organizing projects. Typically I break a project up into sections, add and prioritize tasks for each section. For largest projects, I'll break it into multiple trello boards.

        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.

        I used Asana to manage the tasks, define scope of the project more over to create a learning path that will effect my project.
