Asana was first developed by its cofounder, then an employee at Facebook, as a tool to manage collaborations inside of Facebook. Realizing the potential of what they had built, Asana’s founders decided to branch out on their own and develop Asana into a formidable project management tool.

The solution is entirely web based. Asana prides themselves in the security and robustness of their solution. The user base includes Intel, Samsung, Tesla, Dropbox, BBC, MailChimp, Uber, Airbnb, and a very large list of high profile corporate clients.

The Asana team realizes that in the real world, work is fragmented and can often be chaotic. Information can be scattered and responsibilities can be unclear. Businesses try to correct the situation by holding endless meetings and micromanaging, but this only results in an ineffective use of time.

With the Asana solution, order is brought to chaos. Even if the work is scattered, individual members know what they are required to do and when. Friction is reduced and clarity and transparency are increased, helping teams produce superior results.

With Asana, tasks can easily be organized into shared activities that allow teams to contribute better and manage their workflows more effectively. You can organize complex projects in an easily understood structure and automatically share due dates to team member’s calendars. The solution integrates with Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive. This ensures data sharing between team members is simple and easy.

Asana supports conversations across projects so that teams can share knowledge more easily and collaborate better. Powerful dashboards ensure all aspects of a project can be monitored closely.

Asana comes in two versions: a basic version and a fully functional version that can support unlimited users.
