Conga ActionGrid

Overall, I enjoy using Conga ActionGrid. It helps us store our large candidate pool, while continuously adding more candidates every day. With a quick search we are able to find these candidates and then match them to a job that they might be a good fit for. After we create a packet for them to present to hiring managers

It is well suited for all types of project management. It is able to absorb and extract data in many forms.

  • Matching candidates to potential jobs
No photo available
  • Workfront contains al the necessary details and documents in one location for easy reference.
  • Workfront allows anyone within the company to review a project and know exactly what has happened through the work on the project and also the current status so anyone can pick up the project and work on it if need be.
  • The organization of types of billing is a great tool to be sure we charge appropriate rates for our time. Example: Wed hours are more expensive than studio/design work, so we are able to manage billing quicker and easier.

Cons

  • It could be more accurate
  • Better views would be nice. cleaner
  • Wish the refreshing was quicker

  • The reporting/views and fields available are not always intuitive. For example, when creating a document, task or issue report/view, you cannot access the program or portfolio information/metadata unless you calculate it through to the project level. This equates to a lot of extra calculated fields and work, that in my mind, should not be necessary.
  • The integration with Proof HQ needs some work. We were Proof HQ users first and have begun the Workfront implementation. Eventually, they will be integrated where users access Proof HQ through Workfront. The approvals process in Proof HQ is much more robust that Workfront's; however, the reporting that Workfront provides on the Proof HQ processes and approvals is severely lacking which makes visibility on Proof HQ approvals difficult.
  • There are 3 levels of objects in Workfront: Portfolios, Programs and Projects. There is no way to tie Projects together except to create an issue on the first Project, then convert the issue to another Project. Complicated text mode fields must then be created and placed on a view/report to see if/how these projects are tied together. There should be a better way to tie projects. Our solution was to change the use of the Program object (to have a Program = a Client IO, rather than the Program = Brand). Further, the Portfolio and Program access is tied together. You cannot provide different access to Programs vs. Portfolios which makes our solution a little cumbersome.

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

It's excellent. It really helps optimize a search.
Natalie Fiore 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

  • It has benefited us positively, as I stated earlier- it allows us to filter down results of 65,000+ candidates to a search of 1-100 candidates.
Kyle Rapaport profile photo
  • 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.
