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

Workfront is definitely well suited for a marketing or creative department. For our company, we implemented it for our creative, online experience and demand creation teams in the marketing department, which in turn meant that our requesters needed to learn the system as well. Workfront works well for our teams in that it offers a way to communicate easily amongst each other and facilitates the project lifecycle process.

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.

  • The reporting/views and fields available are not always intuitive. For example, when creating a document, task or issue report/view, you cannot access the program or portfolio information/metadata unless you calculate it through to the project level. This equates to a lot of extra calculated fields and work, that in my mind, should not be necessary.
  • The integration with Proof HQ needs some work. We were Proof HQ users first and have begun the Workfront implementation. Eventually, they will be integrated where users access Proof HQ through Workfront. The approvals process in Proof HQ is much more robust that Workfront's; however, the reporting that Workfront provides on the Proof HQ processes and approvals is severely lacking which makes visibility on Proof HQ approvals difficult.
  • There are 3 levels of objects in Workfront: Portfolios, Programs and Projects. There is no way to tie Projects together except to create an issue on the first Project, then convert the issue to another Project. Complicated text mode fields must then be created and placed on a view/report to see if/how these projects are tied together. There should be a better way to tie projects. Our solution was to change the use of the Program object (to have a Program = a Client IO, rather than the Program = Brand). Further, the Portfolio and Program access is tied together. You cannot provide different access to Programs vs. Portfolios which makes our solution a little cumbersome.

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

I gave a rating of 10 on overall usability because Workfront is cloud based and very easy to use. Workfront also provides collaboration on projects which is critical to a projects success. The tool gives everyone high level visibility in their projects down to the smallest detail. Wonderful project management system, allows you to cut down on emails, meetings and no more spreadsheets for tracking your projects.

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

They don't compare... People say that MS Project is easier to use... But where's the reporting? You can't perform resource allocation with a drag and drop, nor can you build the dynamic reports that Workfront provides. Not to mention automatically distribute those reports at pre-defined intervals... Nothing compares.

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 far better able to schedule upcoming work and make changes on the fly
  • Our Account teams and executives have real-time access to the current status of their projects and can gauge their overall "health"
  • We've entirely eliminated paper/job jackets for day-to-day operations
  • Easier collaboration among our related agencies since our processes and tools are nearly identical now
