Asana is one of the most used tools to manage projects and task control. But even being a very efficient software, it doesn’t have important functionalities from other platforms, such as jestor, which allows you to centralize all task information and organize it efficiently for all employees and areas of a company.
For this reason, it can be very interesting for your business operation to connect these two platforms and create an automatic relationship between them, in which information is sent instantly.
