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.

Workfront

  • WF enabled us to provide a complete culture shift when tracking marketing and design projects. We now have a place that captures as many details as needed to get a project started and worked through. It's been a great way to know the number of projects we're working on and accountability on all parts to maintain a timeline that respects everyone's needs.
  • We pull reports that are able to show our board of directors the type of work we're doing and how we are doing it.
  • We are able to have transparency between departments to have an understanding of everyone's needs, strengths, and deliverables.

Cons

Actionspace

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • I'd like for us to be able to pull reports that are a bit more customized. For example, I want to pull a report that enables me to see what task went past due first to see where and how we can improve. That report currently exists but unfortunately, it pulls in every other task that is past due in the project...instead of me just being able to pinpoint where we start to lose time.
  • I'd like to be able to "pin" documents and Updates within a Portfolio for easy reference when looking at a project as a whole.

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.

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

The limitations of Advantage revolve around project management. While its financial package is strong and agency focused it is unable to mange complex projects in any fashion. The selection process for Workfront was not in my hands but the impact of the selection is my bread and butter and I can see the synergies quite clearly.

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!
