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.

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.

  • We love the agile capabilities in Workfront. The tool does a great job of combining agile and traditional task management into a single tool.
  • Workfront Request Queues provide an easy way to manage and route requests ensuring that the right people see and act on requests.
  • Workfront reporting allows to automate project status reporting without having to write a separate status report. We enter project updates directly into Workfront and then use scheduled reports to deliver information to stakeholders.

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.

  • In terms of what Workfront could do differently or improve, the poser of the search features is in their ability to gather any type of data within the application. Results can occasionally be dense and could use the ability of applying a second level of filtering. Adding in constraints of variables such as date or job could be very helpful in reducing results and saving time.
  • Constantly adding to the available APIs is helpful but perhaps focus groups to figure out some of the emerging application and technologies for which APIs should be added would perhaps be useful. Of course, this could already be taking place without my knowledge...
  • Certain features such as projects specific data might benefit from the ability to take them offline in small quantities .

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

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

We reviewed 7 other project systems when we were reviewing systems to use. We decided to use Workfront 7 years ago. I don't remember the other systems we reviewed but I do remember that were we especially impressed by the customer service and responsiveness we received from our first contact with Workfront (when it was AtTask) as compared to the others. Our questions were answered immediately and testing was easy - so the fact that we were speaking to many other representatives for each of our systems we were evaluating, after the features we needed were identified, it was easy to see who stood out from a customer service perspective since we were interested in the proper support as we went through the process of using a project management system.

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 have seen an increase in productivity as we are able to show our developers where they impact the overall project.
  • We are able to justify when we're unable to provide resources for a specific piece of work on short notice.
  • If we used the project scorecard, we could show a great impact on how we are working towards the strategic initiatives of the organization.
