AgencySparks selected a few project management platforms that help businesses with managing projects more efficiently. These tools can be used in tandem with a project manager or help a team construct an effective project management plan for day to day actions.
Asana is a project management application that helps teams stay productive by connecting team members to one another and streamlining the work process. Responsibilities, goals, lists, project status, workflow, and progress can be commented on and monitored by team members to keep everyone on track and on the same page. Asana prides itself on being an agile project management tool and offers multiple features including time tracking; customizable templates; gantt charts; and tabs for budget, portfolio, idea, and resource management. The platform is user-centered design, so it is easy for all team members to use in order to visualize their project standings.
Asana integrates with Zapier, Dossier, TmeCamp, and others.
Trello is a collaboration tool that helps teams stay organized with detailed boards, lists, and cards. Trello assists teams with project management by allowing team members to track and monitor progress. Tasks can be shared for contribution and commentary to ensure everyone is up-to-date, the kanban system allows for swift production and project flexibility, and the Trello board can organize projects of any size.
