Founded in 2008 by Facebook Co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and former Facebook and Google engineer Justin Rosenstein, Asana helps teams orchestrate work from daily tasks to cross-functional enterprise initiatives. With Asana, organizations have a living system of clarity where everyone—regardless of where they’re located—can see, discuss, and execute their team’s priorities.
While the global shift to remote work may have heightened the awareness of how difficult it is to achieve clarity at work, the problems themselves are not new. More than 100,000 paying customers and millions of teams around the world, from small businesses to large enterprises, rely on Asana to manage everything from company objectives to product launches and marketing campaigns.
The company recently announced Video Messaging in partnership with Vimeo. Bringing the benefits of live video communication to Asana reduces meetings, eliminates information silos and creates a single source of truth for distributed teams and timezones. This new integration allows users to connect asynchronously, delivering benefits of face-to-face communication without the tax of more video meetings or emails.
Asana also added automation features to My Tasks, a personal prioritization system that combines an individual’s to-dos with their broader team’s work, as well as a Smart Calendar Assistant Integration with Clockwise to easily schedule tasks into real time without leaving Asana.
