AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Workfront

I work on a team where each of us is separated individually from the United States. Workfront enables us to collectively collaborate on a common project setting individual goals. Project managers can invite users, send out updates and set goals to be marked as complete by individual users. Definitely an AAA+ option for global team project collaborations. Smaller projects with fewer working participants would most likely not benefit from the ROI for this product, however, if these smaller tasks are building to a larger project or your teams have multiple small projects running simultaneously then Workfront is for you as well.

Pros

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • 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

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • 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.

All that I've said already is why. I suppose the clearest way to say it is that at this point? I cannot imagine running the 300+ active projects in eMarketing without AtTask; it simply wouldn't be possible and even more; I wouldn't imagine why we'd try to find an alternative tool when we have one meeting our needs.

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

Kyle Culpepper profile photo
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

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • 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
