Insightly vs Trello: What are the differences?

Developers describe Insightly as "The leading small business CRM and project management web app". With integrations to Google Apps, Office 365, MailChimp, and major social media sites; great mobile apps for tablets and smart phones; and easy access to a REST API for custom integration, Insightly is the leading small business CRM. On the other hand, Trello is detailed as "Your entire project, in a single glance". Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.

Insightly belongs to "CRM" category of the tech stack, while Trello can be primarily classified under "Project Management".

Some of the features offered by Insightly are:

  • Flexible Calendaring and Events
  • Automatic Address Book
  • Notes and Comments

On the other hand, Trello provides the following key features:

  • Add a checklist to keep on top of all those little to-dos. There’s also a nice, big progress meter, because who doesn’t love a nice, big progress meter?
  • Got a relevant file, image, or document? Attach it right to the card, and you’ll never have to go scrambling through your inbox looking for it later.
  • Attach photos, drawings, sketches, and mockups to quickly illustrate ideas at a glance.

I'm comparing Aha!, Trello and Asana. We are looking for it as a Product Management Team. Jira handles all our development and storyboard etc. This is for Product Management for Roadmaps, Backlogs, future stories, etc. Cost is a factor, as well. Does anyone have a comparison chart of Pros and Cons? Thank you.

I just switched to ClickUp for my development agency - I am the product team, and I relay everything there betwixt designers, devs, and clients.

Clickup = Jira + Confluence but better - more ways to slice and dice your data & documents, make custom views, mind map relationships, and track people's work, plan goals... I even use it to manage project finances and household to-dos.

They have a very comprehensive free tier that never expires, and on top of that they're extremely generous with trials of their paid features, have more-than-fair pricing, and top-notch customer support.

Both Asana and Trello support Kanban style project tracking. Trello is Kanban-only project management, knowledge management, actually card-management tools. Asana is much more complex, supports different project management approaches, well integrated and helpful for any style/type project.

We choose Asana finally, but still some projects kept in Trello

I loved Slack. We used it for discussion. But somehow, it was always difficult to get things done. HeySpace is what replaced Slack and Trello as it combines the functionality of both tools.

So, now we keep on discussing as we did on slack, but once we to a point where we want to do something, we create tasks on a board and distribute them.

trello has a much simpler interface and easy to learn for any team member. asana might have more features and configuration options but do you really need a complex system for developers to manage tasks?

After Microsoft took over trello, it has become more restricted these days but still good for startups.

Keep it simple! Focus on your product, not tools.
