Names I have heard thrown around include Trello, Asana, and Monday.com, although I am open to other suggestions.What is the difference between the different softwares? Which would you recommend and why? TIA!

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.

Asana has two different types of structures: company vs workspace. Company is really best if all the users you plan to assign work to are all internal (have the same corporate domain in their user ID email address). Once one person signs up (even for a free account) with a corporate email address, Asana will automatically relate that person to that company, if it already exists. If you plan to use it for external collaboration as well as internal, then creating a workspace is a better approach.
