Nyaya Health uses Asana in just about every aspect of its business. They use it to track fund-raising campaigns, plan how to get patients from rural Nepal to hospitals in Kathmandu, and even use it to test the computer literacy of job applicants.
"Email is the number-one tool people stop using inside their company when they start using Asana," says Kenny Van Zant, who handles business and operations at Asana. CEO Mark Arnoldy's experience confirms this: His internal email now only makes up about 20 percent of his messages, and many of those messages are just for fun. The real work and communication happens in Asana.
Though I've used Asana myself for some time, I wanted to more fully explore how it can be used in businesses to streamline communication and make teams more efficient. Mark Arnoldy, CEO, Nyaya Health - "Asana or bust" - read full case study
