Workfront

We use Workfront for a wide variety of project types. Everything from creative projects in marketing to application development. Workfront provides a broad set of functionality for project and task management, but each project and project manager can use as much of that functionality as they wish.

I have witnessed users with a PMP background pickup the tool and use it to its full capacity within a week with very little training. Users without basic project management skills, however, have taken much longer with extensive one-on-one training. The tool is highly intuitive if you have a PM background.

It would be nice if the support forms were more dynamic so you could add more information to the support ticket when you enter it to reduce back and forth with the support team member. Also communication on escalated tickets isn't always great. It's gotten better over the years but still needs improvement. Other than that, initial response on support tickets is really quick and the people I've dealt with have always been very professional.

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.

Workfront is a much better product than Salesforce. Workfront has a much better reporting system and can pull necessary details from just about any field or box. Workfront has better work flow templates and is much more customizable. Additionally, we can do a lot of the customizing on our own. With Salesforce, we spent a lot of time calling customer support to find we could not do what we wanted.

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

  • ROI
  • tracking

  • Workfront really just mirrors process that already exists in an organization. If the process is not well defined, it will be revealed when trying to build it into workfront.
  • The ability to track planned effort with actual effort via time logging is a great way for employees to explain to their superiors what they've been working on vs. what they had planned to work on.
  • In creating request queues for project requests, we have been able to estimate internal cost and outsourced cost for each project request and justify additional internal resources if they are needed to accomplish approved initiatives.
