Teamwork is a perfect fit for our agency
“We had previously worked with Asana, Workfront and Basecamp…but nothing was a perfect fit for the agency. Teamwork is more cost effective and from an implementation standpoint it was the easiest.”

Everything you need to get your work done

The right features at the right price


Asana is built for simple task management. Dependencies are hard to review. There are no project budgeting, invoicing, or resource allocation features. And the business plan is 39% more expensive per user.


Teamwork is built for complex project management. All the core features you need – like time tracking, workload capacity estimation and time budgeting, and assigning more than one person per task– are here. And they’re included in your plan.

Full visibility into what’s coming next


Asana grows behind closed doors. Features aren’t clearly announced and users have no idea whose needs are getting prioritized. The development process is opaque: Asana doesn’t explicitly consider user feedback when designing their roadmap.


Teamwork’s feature roadmap is public. You know what we know: what features we’re working on, what’s in the pipeline, and what’s available for early access. (It’s all here.) Plus, development is prioritized based on your needs.

Built to scale with you


Asana’s only growth options are external add-ons. Once you push your plan to its limits, there’s no room left for growth. Even the enterprise tier doesn’t offer much beyond extra security and custom goal setting.


Teamwork is designed to grow with you. We understand that project management is about more than timelines and check boxes. That’s why we built stand-alone applications like desk, chat, CRM, and spaces that you can integrate into your process as you grow.

How 10Up gets client work done with Teamwork

Teamwork doesn’t just help you effortlessly run complex projects: it makes managing your clients easier too. Instead of getting stuck in endless back-and-forths, you can just add your client’s whole team to your project. But don’t take our word on it.

“With 95% of our clients, we can simply introduce our tool and demonstrate how we use it. Then, just like that, we’re ready to collaborate.”
Christina Siegler 10Up

Now that you’ve seen the features, how do Asana and Teamwork’s plans compare?

If you’re looking for a simple task management solution, Asana has you covered. But most client facing businesses need more than that. You need an easy way to track time, create invoices, set project time budgets, or add your client’s entire company to your project management. That’s what Teamwork brings to the table.

We used Monday…then Google Sheets because it was simpler, then Airtable… Then we went to Teamwork, because we needed to reconcile time tracked to the work itself which none of our other tools do. I needed to know how long someone spent on what task: not just what project or client

So what can you and your team gain from using Teamwork instead of Asana?

Teamwork is a mature project management tool built for agencies, creative teams, and consultancies. Every feature we add caters to that mission: we’ve got the public roadmap to prove it. Asana, on the other hand, is built for simple task management. It doesn’t have the tools you need to fully manage client work: burndown reporting, invoicing, or time tracking. And you never know what’s coming. Feature drops are hidden, designed to attract investors instead of serving customers.

Only one of these options was custom-built for client work

Asana, on the other hand, was built for checking off tasks. It doesn’t have the depth and breadth of features to manage complex projects or handle intense client work.

Wait, can I really manage ALL my client work in Teamwork?

Yes. That’s exactly what Teamwork was built for. You can manage projects, track time, run billing and invoicing, forecast budgets, handle complex scheduling and resource allocation, and so much more. In short, if your clients need it, we’ve got it.

“Teamwork is the first project management tool that I've been able to get clients to actually use with me. I've tried Asana and Trello, and clients just ignored them.”
Rochelle Broder Singer President/Chief Word Wrangler
Can Teamwork help us automate recurring tasks?

Yes! You can automate thousands of actions: from using templates, to creating forms and setting up custom rules. Our automations are flexible, easy to use, and will save you a lot of work. 

“Teamwork automatically schedules and assigns all the tasks working backward from the date of the presentation. It’s like having a built-in assistant that remembers all of my preferences and due dates for any project.”
Jay Baer Founder Convince & Convert
Can Teamwork be “the one platform” that helps me manage all work like Asana promises to?

Yes, it can. Teamwork integrates with all your favorite tools, including accounting software like Xero and Quickbooks. (Something Asana completely ignores.) And we’ve designed multiple “suite-style” tools you can add as you grow: chat, CRM, spaces and more.

“Teamwork really made it easy to organize the projects and have everything visually in front of us and have that communication with our customers at a minimal cost.”
Mike Sheldon Project manager at Tools4Ever
