Samepage vs. Asana at a glance

Those familiar with Asana know that it's a well-designed task management tool. In fact, nearly all activity in Asana revolves around a task or collection of tasks. Teams needing to share files, ideas, and other project content must do it through tasks. One benefit of Asana's task-oriented structure is its ability to provide basic summary reports of progress on projects. Asana also allows tech-savvy users to add custom fields to tasks, making for a more customized task management experience.

Samepage is also highly capable of acting as a task management tool, but it's much more flexible. As an all-in-one collaboration platform, Samepage uses living pages to help teams develop content, manage tasks, share files, and communicate with each other in context, in real time. This gives them limitless options for shaping their workflows.

The advantages of using Samepage

Samepage costs less and is more likely to meet all of your team's collaboration needs. In fact, your team will rarely need to leave Samepage to get work done. With live content editing, task management, surveys, group video and text chat, file sharing, diagram drawing, and shared calendars built in, projects can go from start to finish without the distractions of hopping between apps or the added costs of an IT administrator. Plus, Samepage integrates with over 700+ popular apps to help you further consolidate your team's workflows into a single place.

A noticeable benefit of using Samepage is its ease of use and control. Asana requires teams to upgrade to their "Enterprise" version in order to use all of their control and support features, but Samepage offers all of its administrative controls and award-winning support without further upgrades.
