Abstract

Our design department is indeed very happy with Abstract to solve their issues with regard to versioning and collaboration, etc. The admin side of the program is not that great. It's easy and simple, however, it would be nice to limit access more easily and maybe even link Abstract with our directory. The flexibility for accessing the work designers do can't be beaten!

WorkflowMax

WorkflowMax is very well suited for a business that wants to track time billed by project, to have an easy way to generate invoices for those projects, and to keep track of overall productivity and invoice status. I imagine it can also be adapted to different types of businesses that deal in goods rather than services and time. I am not sure for which scenarios or businesses the program is not appropriate.

Pros

Abstract

  • Branch management for design files.
  • Good collaborative features like comments and sharing.

WorkflowMax

  • Allows for fairly simple or elaborate project forecasting depending on the complexity of the job. This allows us to track time by a single project or multiple phases.
  • Time keeping and coordination with invoicing software has increased our firm's ability to issue timely and accurate invoices to clients. Has ability to break down projects in numerous ways to meet the needs of our various clients. This means we can invoice by project, phase, milestone, or dollar increments.
  • Interface is clean and easy to follow. The easier it is to use the fewer mistakes that are made when entering information. This is greatly appreciated.

Cons

Abstract

  • Frequent bugs between Abstract and Sketch.
  • Takes a lot of processing power and battery.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

WorkflowMax

  • When looking at the job distribution it isn't to scale and it isn't printable.
  • Sometimes it is confusing as to where you might find something until you realise there are multiple points of access.
  • When a job is assigned the whole task is assigned and if you work on it before the task is allocated to you, it isn't possible to enter those hours. It would be better if the employee could choose the task they did and enter the hours and then it sent back to an approver to have it added.

Decide how to breakdown your ongoing jobs - are they monthly recurring or annual broken into chunks?What are you going to give clients i.e. how will your proposals and invoices look?

There are very few tools that compete with Abstract right now. I would say none of them are even close to this yet.

WorkflowMax

Loan Assistant is a virtual business, entirely operated in the cloud. We do not have an office. Team members are located in diverse locations such as Munich, Canada and Sri Lanka as well as various locations in Australia. WorkflowMax is what ties us together. The fact that the billing is so tightly integrated into the workflow is a great strength. At this time we have been using Max for 6 years and plan on keeping using it. We have evaluated Slack but it didn't work for us.

Return on Investment

Abstract

  • Saves time on file management
  • Keeps old, archived work
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

WorkflowMax

  • Biggest impact has been automation of client invoicing. Prior to using WorkflowMax, invoices were generated in Word, usually a template from a prior invoice to that client. Now the invoice is generated in WorkflowMax, saved as a draft, exported to Word, uploaded to Microsoft SharePoint, then shared with the invoice author. This has cut down on mistakes and unnecessary admin time.
