Updated:

Even before the pandemic, the business world has already been shifting online. The process was slow but constant. COVID-19 has served as the final push. The move was inevitable.

Still, this new sort of mode comes with its challenges. To get things done, we need a safe and secure platform to serve as a virtual workplace. It also needs to be fast and fully functional. So, which one is the best? We found the best answer is Asana for its fantastic features at an affordable price, but we have a few other picks for large businesses and freaks in the spreadsheets.

Practically everyone working online in 2021 has heard of Asana. If you haven't - you've been missing out. This awesome platform has been gaining thousands of new users with each passing day. We must agree that the attention it has been getting is fully deserved.

Why we chose Asana:

  • A robust solution enables you to manage multiple teams at once
  • The options are too numerous to mention yet each can be of great value to an experienced team leader
  • Great for use in business as well as more personal projects
  • Perfectly free yet fully functional for small teams of 14 people or less
  • Most functional app of all the platforms tested, which is great for working on the go (or when you're not ready to get out of bed)
  • Larger teams cost more at $10.99 per user/mo for Premium or $24.99 per user/mo for Business

If you're looking for an all-encompassing solution that will be easy to use yet reliable at all times - this is the one to go for.

The third spot on our list is reserved for Basecamp 3. An amazing platform for anyone running a big business, this could be the solution to most (if not all) of your project-planning and task-managing problems.

Why we chose Basecamp 3:

  • An excellent system for really large businesses
  • Ability to adapt to just about any type of project
  • Massive amount of cloud storage space that allows you to upload huge media files
  • The Personal plan is completely free, while an extremely comprehensive Business plan will set you back $99 per month

Despite the somewhat steep price, we simply had to include this one. It's too good to miss.

    Graduate to Basecamp.
    All growing businesses run into the same fundamental problems. Hair on fire, buried under email, stuff everywhere. The good news? Basecamp solves them.

    ✔ Everything will be in one organized place
    ✔ Everyone will be on the same page
    ✔ Projects will get off the ground faster
    ✔ You'll know exactly what’s going on
    ✔ You'll free up time spent on meetings

    From 2004 all the way up to today, more and more businesses are choosing the Basecamp way. Over 4,000 businesses signed up last week to get results.

    The problems teams deal with mostly boil down to stuff scattered in too many places — emails, chat threads, Word docs, etc. That makes things easy to miss and hard to find, which leads to communication gaps, preventable emergencies, and extra work.

    Single purpose project management and chat apps can't fix this problem — they can only make it worse. Basecamp is different. It combines all the tools teams need in a single, straightforward package that makes work feel like less work.

    We use Basecamp to make software (Basecamp!), discuss ideas, plan marketing campaigns, share pet pics — you get the idea. It's a one stop shop for all the things teams do together.

The 411 from our Appventurer

My phone tends to be filled to the brim with apps I am either trying on for size of using on a regular basis. I use them for a variety of tasks, including sketching and creating art, keeping in touch with friends, being up to date with the latest news, learning about diverse spiritual practices and, of course, playing games!

With over 10 years of experience as a translator and writer, I channel my creativity into writing about things I enjoy. My education in business (I hold a bachelor's degree in operations management) is but one part of expertise. I have worked for art magazines, spiritual blogs, news and business sites, and now I explore the fascinating world of apps.

My previous work is as diverse as my interests. Fresh out of college, I was employed as a translator and interpreter at the fringes of the corporate world and the NGO sector. After switching to writing, I first focused on business news, then shifted to working for a series of art magazines (WideWalls perhaps being the most well known), and even wrote content for a couple of spirituality-focused apps for Labyrinthos Academy. Little did I know that I would eventually devote a good chunk of my time to writing about all sorts of interesting new apps out there.
