Asana, a leading work management platform for teams, announced the introduction of Asana for Marketing and Creative Teams, an end-to-end solution for teams to manage their entire marketing and design process from start to finish. The suite of new features and integrations are now available in Asana’s recently launched product offering, Asana Business.
According to a 2018 survey by the Content Marketing Institute, approximately half (56%) of the most successful marketing organizations rate the project management of their content creation as excellent or very good, compared with only 11% of the least successful. In addition, one-quarter (26%) of survey respondents reported that their marketing campaign development is frequently or always subject to bottlenecks, hampering their efficiency and results.
“In our always-on digital era, companies are asking their marketing and creative teams to create more content, for more channels than ever before,” said Dave King, Head of Marketing, Asana. “As a result, today’s top marketing teams recognize that optimizing their process is even more important than optimizing their channels. Asana for Marketing and Creative Teams is helping the world’s best brands, from Sony Music to National Geographic to Bobbi Brown to LVMH, cut the chaos of coordinating campaigns in spreadsheets and emails by serving as the source of truth for managing their marketing and design process.”

- Proofing: Proofing allows stakeholders to leave specific, actionable feedback on images so creative teams know what needs to be done in order to complete their work on time and as effortlessly as possible.

“Asana’s integration with Creative Cloud streamlines work by reducing the amount of time spent coordinating across tools, ultimately improving cross-team collaboration and expediting the time spent getting creative from concept to channel placement,” said Vijay Vachani, Director of Platform & Partner Ecosystem for Creative Cloud at Adobe.
