10000ft

I think 10000ft is good for bare minimum project monitoring, we used it a large company because we didn't need to have exact numbers - it was just a rough idea to see where freelance resources were over burning. If, however you work a much smaller company and really need to know detailed information it's not as effective, there are many other software options that really allow for much closer and precise tracking. I would recommend 10000ft for companies that just need to monitor large freelance teams, track hours and higher level projects that are also monitored on other project management tools. It's a tool I would only use in conjunction with something else.

Workfront

It is well suited for all types of project management. It is able to absorb and extract data in many forms.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.
  • The primary strength of Workfront is the feature that most IT professionals dread and that is its ability to do all things related to process and projects. The usual jack of all trades approach is often one of master of none but in the case of Workfront, given some time for customization to make the tool your own with the help of the Workfront team, those requirements for an all-encompassing application achieve the goal well. Not just functional but more concretely in providing real assistance in getting through workflows and processes with minimal effort.
  • Multiple APIs allow need integration into the legacy systems and peripheral packages that all companies use for Microsoft products to smaller more niche applications. A very helpful attribute of the application.
  • As with many service industries, time reporting is a huge resource drain when the tool for doing so is slow, complex or limited in scope. Workfront allows for access to all project data from within time management as well as simplified approval processes and review capabilities for managers of time and resources.
  • While it seems like a minor feature, integrated search throughout the application makes life and time management much simpler with the ability to select data points from drop downs drilling down into every aspect of the app. Reporting, likewise, is extremely adaptable to the needs of various business functions with easy customization and granular capabilities requiring little in the way of training or skillset.

Cons

  • It's often confusing to use and find things, I sometimes find it to be a little counterintuitive as to where functions are (e.g. for tracking budgets and pulling reports).
  • When pulling a budget I always struggled to comb through the large amounts of data and time inputted. When I select a filter the page often wouldn't refresh or i'd forget to de-select a filter as it wasn't in an obvious place, which sometimes left me with pulling an incorrect budget.
  • The data is only as good as the people entering the time. Often with so many small tasks people would enter time incorrectly, in the wrong milestone or project. It lists all of your projects on one page, so it's not easy to enter it and there's a lot of room for error.
  • It would be nice if Workfront allowed a 'middle' category between a project and a task, so we can have subtitles to projects.
  • It would be great if Workfront could link to Outlook - our project orders come in through email, our project revisions come in through email, so we are always duplicating time in cutting and pasting each and every order or revision into Workfront system and then taking the update out of Workfront and pasting it in to an email, it would be great if that process could be streamlined.
  • Managing the end date for the project is difficult, the project status can't be in "complete-pending approval" if we want to push the finish date out further, so we have to adjust the status for the project, change the date and put the status of the project back to it's original status - sometimes we forget to do that after changing the date and the project goes into a place where the proper staff doesn't see it to manage it.
  • The rejection process is clunky. If the task is updated and then requires a rejection, it should carry forward the details from the update rather than requiring us to cut and paste the same information 2 times into both the update and the rejection.

I think there's limited uses for the tool and much more comprehensive options out there for multiple tools in one. With more people working remotely, it's hard to just use email and face to face, in some ways you need to have a tool that's a fall back and a record of where you are + where you're going

Licence renewals are dependent on executive budgets. That being said, I would ask to have a single licence to manage my work if the licences for the team were not feasible.

I have witnessed users with a PMP background pickup the tool and use it to its full capacity within a week with very little training. Users without basic project management skills, however, have taken much longer with extensive one-on-one training. The tool is highly intuitive if you have a PM background.

The training is very easy to use and you can simply choose the topics included in the course(s) that are most important to your training needs. After each training course, you are tested on what you have learned. If you need a refresher course, they provide Course Catalogs as well as instructor-led courses & workshops.

I would recommend all user's using Workfront to go through the training material provided. Have all user's practice in the Sandbox environment and have your workflow documented for the consultant before he arrives on site.

Alternatives Considered

Although an interesting tool, compared to Basecamp or Workfront, 10000ft really struggles on the collaboration aspect of the tool. It's great for the bare minimum, recording hours and pulling a budget, but we also relied on email for collaboration and face to face meetings - which is no bad thing! Although for big companies and small projects it's nice to have everything all in one tool so there's less jumping and room for error. That would be my recommendation for any company evaluating it
Workfront is 100x better for our organization! SharePoint, while it has many project management benefits, did not provide the project specific communication component that we so desperately needed.

We have been using Workfront for about 3 years. During this time they continue to be a very stable project management system. Workfront's overall scalability is able to handle increased loads of work. When using Workfront for a project management tool for the web team, we store documents, images & video's without any issues. They work with their customer's to provide the best project management system in the market today! I highly recommend Workfront for all project management needs. Workfront strives to deliver unique technology solutions to growing companies!

Return on Investment

  • Positive - We were able to track multiple projects at the same time and record accurate hours.
  • Positive - Able to pull budget and excel reports which can the be analyzed further and relatively simply.
  • Negative - There were a lot of times when hours were entered inaccurately which left us in a bind with budget and freelance billing.
  • We are still in process of implementing Workfront. It's a slow roll out, one to two departments at a time. So our impact thus far is minimal but I can say having every program/project in a single system has provided a lesser need for email chains, meetings and "he said/she said" conversations.
