Velocity Software Review: Overview – Features – Pricing
Velocity is a reporting and analytic tool built for Asana, which is a popular project management and team collaboration platform. However, Asana is limited in terms of reporting. Users who need a more detailed and graphical report may need to use a reporting integration such as Velocity. This application enables users to easily create powerful reports, dashboards and analytics to help the team understand their Asana data and allow them to move more efficiently. A direct competitor to Velocity is Bridge24.
