My review of ten team task management tools now available at GigaOM Pro, using a task model versus team model 10x10 grid approach:
- Top tier: Asana, Trello, Do, and Wrike
- Mid tier: Producteev, and Astrid
- Lower tier: Basecamp, Remember The Milk, Action Method Online, and Workflowy
Excerpt to give a sense of the analysis in the report:
Three offerings in the top tier — Do, Trello, and Asana — cluster together, with Wrike as an outlier. Do and Asana are competitive products, sharing common design metaphors as well as similar team and task models. Both scored an eight for having effective killer features, as did Trello. Trello has perhaps the most innovative user experience of all of these top-tier solutions. But the choice between those two user experience design approaches has to be left to the user, ultimately. Wrike, the outlier in this tier, is a somewhat less team-oriented tool but has the richest task model of all the products.
I think in future versions of this report I will a/ start with a larger group of products, b/ winnow down more aggressively, with one sentence or one paragraph characterizations of the lower tiers, and c/ provide in depth reviews of the top tier solutions, only.
