If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

Workamajig

Workamajig is great for larger workforces. We currently have anywhere from 10-15 people involved in different stages of a project. This really helps coordinate both comunication as well as work flow. You can have one person take point and help move processes along. It also has helped us create a more streamlined process and helps keep people from dropping the ball along the way. The biggest area for improvement in my eyes is the lack mobile capability.

Pros

  • Allows you to send emails directly from the target's account
  • Allows you to create tasks
  • Keeping track of notes made is easy

  • Project Request submission. This is a feature that is difficult to find in other Project Management tools, and we have looked at several dozen while researching the latest products on the market. Project Requests allow a project manager to fill out what type of project is needed, then the Marketing Lead would receive an email with the Request data, and easily turn this request into a full-fledged Project.
  • The customization is very good. Workamajig staff will work with your organization to determine exactly what features your team needs, and then customize the project experience catered to your organization. You can choose which data to display, what fields to fill in, how to organize each project, and so forth.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • The interface isn't as intuitive as I would like, i.e. double clicking doesn't open a work order, you need to highlight then go to the menu and select jump to project
  • Mobile support is practically non existent. in my position i'm constantly on the go and being able to use a mobile app to check project statuses

Customization and Project Request submission were two of the biggest draws that our organization valued back when our contract with Workamajig started. Those two features were deemed more important than some of its inadequacies. However, the project management products have come a very long way in the past five years, so we felt it necessary to move on. We had to modify our department's process of handling project requests and submissions, but the features gained, such as cumulative reporting, mobile access and asset management, have paid dividends.

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • Projects get done in a more timely manner
  • Gaps in workflow are easy to identify making the team more productive
  • Changes in staff can result in projects getting lost in the system.
