ProfileFounded in 2008 by Facebook Co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and former Facebook and Google engineer Justin Rosenstein, Asana is an application that helps organizations collate, track, and manage projects. The software service improves team collaboration and management, allowing users to share tasks, create deadlines, and delegate work through their computers or a mobile app.
The company recently announced integration with Microsoft Teams, as the two platforms work together to make task management even easier. Conversations within Teams will now become trackable and actionable tasks within Asana, with customizable notifications that can alert users to project changes and developments.
The combination of workflow apps and team management apps comes at a time when the Teams platform has added 31 million daily active users (DAU) in a single month, a direct result of the virtual collaboration needs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Asana’s tools can benefit projects ranging from small teams to large strategic initiatives. They currently have over 75,000 customers spread across 195 countries.
