      "Looks promising! Obviously, it is NOT free, as there is a link for pricing. There is definitely a need for synchronization while working online and this could be helpful, if it is not cost prohibitive."

      "What a relief Asana has been!! I was trying to monitor everyone's participation to our large project but was having a hard time getting people to respond to my phone calls, emails and texts. Setting up an account with Asana has made it so much easier to keep an eye on every one! Everyone knows how important this project is to me so I want to be sure that was have everything done at the right time and done perfectly well - Asana is letting me do that now! My co-workers didn't seem too excited about the website (I can't figure out why!) but once I told them all it was mandatory to use it, they stopped complaining and just did it. A huge thanks to Asana for helping me keep tabs on all my co-workers!!"

      "Ok. Folks, I am now experiencing a bit of a whiplash here. This seemingly “new” platform sounds like it hatched out of Google-Project-X without scouting what is available out there already. Unless this is a vain competition bid, I am not feeling it. Should you disagree with me, prove me wrong. I' m patiently waiting. "

Zoho lets me see how everyone is getting along on the project, and if there is a problem, someone can just comment and let everyone know what's up.
