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.
