SAN FRANCISCO -- Asana, the San Francisco start-up from Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz, has launched a paid version of its productivity and collaboration tool geared to businesses.
The paid version has more features than the free version and is not limited to 30 users as the free version is. It’s a first step to take on entrenched players and young start-ups in the project management software market.
The paid version starts at $300 a month for up to 50 users. Teams of 30 can also upgrade to the paid version for $100 a month.
Some of the hottest companies in technology -- Airbnb, Twitter, and Foursquare -- are already using the software from Facebook veterans Moskovitz and Justin Rosenstein. Asana rolled out the software in November. Since then, the 23-employee company says people have created 10 million tasks in Asana and completed 4 million of them. The product is designed to help people work together more efficiently.
