This post contains a brief comparison among  The Best Team Collaborating Apps: Asana Vs Slack.

What is Asana and How Asana Works?

Asana was founded in 2008 by Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and ex-engineer Justin Rosenstein and Asana is a web and mobile (android and iPhone) based application designed to make the teamwork more efficient. Asana is one of the must have development tools for developers and designers and simply this is ultimate task management tool specially designed for teams to track their work. Together with that Asana allows teams to plan, organize, etc. Asana is available for both mobile and web and this is also an easy to use task management tool.

What is Slack and What Slack Offers?

Slack is a messaging application for web and mobile and many workplaces or even school groups are seems to be using. Slack is actually designed for the making effective work of those working in virtual workplace . Slack can be used by teams and workplaces across multiple devices and platforms. Slack is suitable for uploading and sharing files in the team and slack can be integrated with other apps like skype(for video calls).

Similarities Among Asana And Slack,

Both the Asana and Slack are web based and are supported in iPhone app and android app too. Both of them offer a free plan with minimum features and premium plan with extra features. Typical customers of Asana and Slack are freelancers, small businesses, mid businesses and enterprises. The common features they offer are API, automatic notifications, task tracking, etc. 

So, What are the Difference Between Slack and Asana?

Asana and Slack are not exactly similar. The features applications developed by single developer vary, but they are developed by different developers with somehow different vision. The developers of both of them have tried their best to cover enough features required for teamwork but they are quite different in themselves.
Asana lacks application sharing, instant messaging and third party integration. Some developers say, Asana is more effective than Slack for team collaboration. Slack is focused as messaging application while Asana is extended as application for organizing, tracking and planning.


Actually, making a comparison of such competitor tools itself is a stupid job. One shouldn’t jump to any tools by seeing a description made by a single person as the perception of people towards any object and any tool is different. This post is made just to view them surfacely, to face and see each of the features, you should join and use. Then, the one which is better for you should be chosen further.

Both of them are best in their own way and I cannot directly say anyone to jump over asana or slack. You should be aware of features what actually you are looking for and have to compare them with the features offered by both asana and slack. Or, you can use both of them for several weeks and choose the one which you find suitable.
If you have used any of them, please share your experience and share which you found better for what reason.
