We’ve been trialing Avaza because of its built in time and budget/profit tracking capabilities. In other words we want to know at glimpse when we’re on budget and when we’re not, and that we’re allocating resources correctly.
Avaza is not bad but we miss the low friction environment of Asana. For instance in Avaza to check a task off as complete you have to open the task, click on the Status dropdown menu and choose “Complete”. You can’t just mark a task as complete by clicking on the check button in a list, as you can in Asana. Another one is that you can’t create a task within the time tracker on the fly; instead you have to leave the time tracker, find the project, add the task, then go back to the timer to start timing the task.
So I’m taking one last look at how we might track time and budget/profits in Asana before we make the final jump to Avaza. Do you have any suggestions?
Preferably we don’t want to rely on integrations if we can help it. One reason being that we’re then relying on two separate software packages and two separate companies. But the main reason being that Avaza would only cost us $20/mth for 5 users, whereas premium Asana (for custom fields) + Harvest would cost us $90/mth.
