I'm a customer and an end-user. We are using the latest version of the solution. It is SaaS-based. I'd advise people interested in trying the solution to just jump in and start using it. It is very effective and simple to use. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. I may not have used all of the features yet. However, it is very uncomplicated and has a nice user interface. It feels very modern and nimble.

I'm not sure who the cloud provider is for Trello, but I'm assuming it's AWS. We have eight to ten people using Trello in our company. It's just all management, e.g. the executive level, the team leads, it's management across the board. We're not a huge organization, but it's being used extensively. It's being used daily, e.g. we do have weekly calls with our main management team, and the first thing we do on every call is opening up Trello. We go through all of the cards to find out what's outstanding, what's moving, etc. This is how we operate, and this is how we're staying organized, through using Trello on a daily basis. As the organization grows and we have more people in management, we could increase usage of Trello, and start including more people, but we're also potentially thinking of a way to be able to implement it and having just regular employees on there as well. It just adds a whole new level of organization to our business. I've not had the chance to contact the technical support team of Trello, because for all of the years I've used it, absolutely nothing breaks, and nothing goes wrong. I'm not even sure they have a support team, e.g. I'm sure they do, but I've never had the need to actually contact them. My advice to people looking into implementing Trello is to just do it. It's really a great software, and it's very easy to use. It's a great collaboration tool, as long as you implement it into your organization properly. I always have a game plan. You shouldn't expect to implement any kind of software and feel that it's going to make drastic changes to your organization. Make sure you have a game plan behind it, so once you're implementing it, you understand what kind of stages you need on your Trello board, and building processes behind that. I'd give Trello a rating of nine out of ten, because I just don't believe that any product would be perfect. We really enjoyed using Trello, but we're hoping they'd surprise us in the future, e.g. through a new feature or functionality we haven't even thought about. We'll definitely continue using the solution, in the hope that they'd grow to be bigger and better.

I'm just a customer and end-user. I use whichever solution the project requires. Sometimes I use Trello, and other times the project calls for something like Jira. I don't use Trello all of the time. The solution is an online tool. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate the product at a seven. The only drawback I see is the loading issues. For a different set of employees, that wouldn't matter much. They can wait five minutes for everything to load and they can do their work quickly, after five minutes of wait time. However, for my role, where I'm directly facing customers, it should be quick to get the information while I'm talking to them to address their inquiries quickly. I cannot say "I don't know." I cannot give such kind of answers to my customer when they're on a call with me. For my segment and for the roles I've been in, which are mostly the customer-facing or manager-type roles, it should be quick enough. However, for developers or testers, it need not be.

The real question is: what type of Project/Portfolio Management system do I need?  The Trello, Asana, and Monday.com types of products tend to be a bit more lightweight. Sometimes, they lack the structure that a more robust system such as Project Online or Project for the Web can offer.  If the organization is small(er) and or only a few individuals will be utilizing the system, then the former may work well. If a large(r) organization and many PMs /Portfolio Managers, compliance issues, etc., a more mainstream Project? A Portfolio Management approach may be needed. Look into a bigger player in the market.  Take a look at the Gartner reviews for additional suggestions as to what level and type of system may be the right one for your organization.

I have experience with Asana. It's an easy-to-use and configure solution, especially for medium and non-complex plans.

Pricing can be improved. You have to pay more to unlock certain features.
