Trello has competition in the project collaboration and management industry in software like Asana, 10,000ft by Smartsheet, Wrike, and monday.com. In relevant aspects, Trello is compared to its competitors below:
  • Functionality: Trello is loaded with many features that support collaboration, project management, and workflow management. Similarly, its competition also has most of these features but considerably different interfaces and modes of operations.
  • Cost: In terms of cost, Trello compares more favorably to its competitors. The least plan Trello offers is priced at $5 per month. In contrast, Wrike and monday.com have their starting prices pegged at $9.8 and $10 monthly, respectively. At the same time, Asana pegs its starting price at $13.8 monthly, while 10,000ft by Smartsheet is regarded as less cost-friendly than Trello. Only 10,000ft does not have a free version, but all the software solutions have free trials available.
  • Deployment and Support: Trello offers email, FAQ, and chat support channels without 24/7 live representatives. In comparison, monday.com and Wrike offer all with a live rep and phone support, while Asana and 10,000ft have no phone support or live rep.
  • Scalability: Trello compares favorably with the competition in terms of scalability potential as it supports teams of all sizes. The competitors also support teams of all sizes, with 10,000ft especially targeting bigger teams.
  • Customers/Industries: Trello targets individuals and teams of small businesses. In contrast, monday.com, 10,000ft, and Wrike are more suited for teams, mid-market firms, and even larger businesses. Asana and monday.com also favor smaller teams. Both Trello and its competitors have similar target industries.
  • Cloud or Physical: Trello is entirely cloud and web-based, and there is no availability for on-premise deployment. All the competitors mentioned do not differ from Trello in this category, although 10,000ft by Smartsheet has no desktop support.
  • Popularity: Trello compares more favorably in terms of popularity to its competitors. The Trello brand partners with more prominent names than its competitors, and is more widely accepted with over a million users. Asana, monday.com, and Wrike are also well-established players in the industry.
