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

Workfront

Workfront is definitely well suited for a marketing or creative department. For our company, we implemented it for our creative, online experience and demand creation teams in the marketing department, which in turn meant that our requesters needed to learn the system as well. Workfront works well for our teams in that it offers a way to communicate easily amongst each other and facilitates the project lifecycle process.

Cons

  • The speed of ActionGrid can be very slow when reviewing a large pool of results
Peggy Tambouridis profile photo
  • 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

I've only used Salesforce before and am now using Conga ActionGrid. Although Salesforce is great, it is only used to log candidate information and then log actions that have been performed. With Conga ActionGrid, we are able to log more specific details about candidates, activities and follow up items. Conga ActionGrid provides more tools that would benefit many departments

I have very little experience using other systems like Workfront. My background is more in billing systems and order processes. All I can say is it beats Google Docs and endless email chains.

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!
