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.

Workzone

I think WorkZone is a great program for companies with simpler project management scenarios. It is not as well fitted for advertising agencies and how they operate internally and with clients

Pros

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • Allows for client reviews and sharing. WorkZone allows you to create a customizable interface for each of your clients.
  • Review process and note taking. WorkZone's review process on work is, in a word, amazing! For everyone that is included in a piece of work that is sent out, both internally and to your clients, an email chain is created. This pops up in everyone's email whenever a new response is added but it also is stored within the file/video you're commenting on. That comment log/discussion will be stored with that file until you delete it.
  • Ease of Use. WorkZone clearly marks 'parent folders' or main categories. One is called "client uploads" and that is where anything your client uploads for you to use or review will be stored. Also, as mentioned earlier, the private/hidden directory for internal use only is called "holding tank." This allows for peace of mind when it comes to having interns or junior employees upload a rough. You can rest easy knowing that anything in that folder cannot be accessed by anyone who is not marked as an employee/internal by an admin.

Cons

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.
Kyle Culpepper profile photo
  • Entering dates for individual tasks became cumbersome after a while. If I wanted tasks to happen sequentially (say, 4 tasks over a period of one month, thus 1 every week), I would still have to enter each date individually. I would greatly appreciate a function that would automatically calculate and enter sequential dates for multiple tasks.
  • The Setup menu can be slightly confusing, if users do not pay attention to which workspace they are working in. To reach a site level setup menu, you must be viewing All Workspaces. If you are working in an individual workspace and click Setup, it will take you to the setup menu for that workspace alone. It would be nice if the Setup button always took users to the site level setup, and let them navigate to the specific workspace, if they wish to do so.
  • As far as I have seen, if you post a document for review by your team members, and someone comments on it, you must navigate back to the individual document you posted to see your team members' notes. I wish there was an easier way to see all comments from the project page, without having to navigate to the task and then to the document.

I was very impressed with how easy the WorkZone software is to use, and would very likely recommend the software to a colleague. I do see room for small improvements, however. I do not currently use WorkZone in my company, but if there is ever a need to implement a project management program, I would be happy to recommend WorkZone. The system is easy to learn (a plus when implementing from scratch in a new company) and the WorkZone team provides unlimited training and support.

For my line of work WorkZone was a nice stepping stone, but there are other management tools that have a better fit for my particular industry

Throughout the use of the WorkZone software, we never had a issue with it being unavailable. This is important, considering we wanted to access our projects and see our progress at any moment. WorkZone was always available and made constant supervision of tasks and goals easy; no excuses for not checking in on the status of a project.

I have zero complaints about the performance of WorkZone; for our organization's needs, it was a perfect tool for keeping track of various responsibilities and tasks. We never experienced a lag or down-time when using the software, and the simple interface made things exactly that from our end...simple. WorkZone is a fantastic tool for work management that never fails to perform, in my experience.

The team at WorkZone is incredibly helpful and very willing to lend support when they can. Our team was constantly growing, and our new team members needed training every time someone cam on board. The WorkZone support staff was more than willing to ensure our new team members were completely comfortable using the software and set up for success.

The WorkZone trainers are wonderful! They offered us unlimited over-the-phone and online support, and the trainings were always informative. The WorkZone support team was willing to answer multiple questions and review sections of the training if need be. They were always accommodating, and trainings were scheduled very quickly for when our team needed them!

Implementation of WorkZone was very easy. We simply log into a portal online and begin to set up our projects. Access codes were sent very quickly to our team, so there was practically no delay once we signed the contract for our subscription. Training was scheduled quickly and was very helpful, especially as new team members joined our organization.

Alternatives Considered

Kyle Culpepper profile photo
Our team researched multiple project management systems online, and ultimately demoed two systems: WorkZone and Basecamp. WorkZone seemed much easier to use and seemed to offer more amenities than Basecamp; after initial demos and trainings, our team felt more comfortable using the WorkZone software. We thought it was a much better value for the price, compared to other alternatives

We are a small organization, so the need to expand our use of WorkZone was limited. I only rate it below a 10 simply because I do not have much experience with the scaleability of the product. From the previews and training sessions, it does seem that the software can easily be adjusted to accommodate a growing workload; something we may use in future, just not at this point in our organization's development.

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.

  • Management of the project team.
  • Management of projects and their budgets
  • Management of client money efficiently
