I've spoken with a few member agencies who use Asana and they seem pleased. I'm not sure it has all the functionality that some agencies need/want but I believe it has more than Basecamp. If you are seeking alternatives, be sure to check these other popular agency systems:

There are also others out there (but the names escape me) so hopefully they will be shared through additional responses.
Hi Francis. I am not sure how important accurate numbers are to you in your agency. Agencies using two systems are not getting real numbers in terms of both financial reporting AND cost/management accounting particularly when it comes to profitability by project or client, which brings me to the various definitions of the word "PROFIT". I only have one definition but in my travels over the years, it is interesting how there seems to be a different derivation of it each time I visit and agency.
In addition, QB missing half of the information to determine true profitability by client/project.
Lastly, in a two system agency, the person doing the accounting does not have much knowledge of what is happening at the PM level and relies on his/her manual intuition of trying their best to keep current and maintain accuracy. This takes a lot of manual time!
We use Clients and Profits for media and accounting and we have been using WorkZone for a little over a year for project management. It was a big change going to electronic project management, but everyone is happy we made the change and it has definitely improved efficiencies. https://www.workzone.com/
I have not seen Workzone or Trello but we went to Function Point and Quickbooks two years ago and have been relatively happy. I've also had a few years experience with ADvantage so feel free to contact if you need any opinions on either of those.
