Airtable

Airtable is best suited for any size company. Especially companies with many departments working on many projects. Airtable is also a great tool for regularly scheduled meetings to keep track of things discussed, documents used, and assignments. We use it to plan any event we hold for our company and our annual company retreat. It really keeps things organized and is very easy to access across any device. Outside of financial spreadsheets, this really replaces any spreadsheet software, including—and perhaps especially—cloud-based shared spreadsheets.

Workboard

Project management at a higher level for non technical teams would work best in Workboard. It has nice visualization of the tasks (My Work), project objectives, deadlines, action items which all people appreciate. Using Workboard will keep the team on the same page, will increase its focus on the deadlines resulting in the productivity increase.But, if you need stronger project management for software development projects, where methodologies evolve quickly, you may need to look for other tools.

Pros

  • Multiple viewing options, including self (individual) view and then view by project (also called a Base).
  • Completely customized columns with the ability to easily create many different data types.
  • The templates are really, really good.

  • Project management at higher level - includes tasks assignment, visual representations of the project status and deadlines
  • Increases the team members' sense of ownership - especially for people that are not used with or exposed to dedicated project management tools like Microsoft Project is.
  • User collaboration - which in turn reduces the communication via email
  • Increases the efficiency of the meetings - by quickly going through the action items and updating the task progress in the tool itself
  • Support has been outstanding so far

Cons

  • They only thing I can think of is being able to switch between user accounts without having to log on and off.
  • A personal request, would be to add shades of brown to the color palette. When working with the children, we color code field options for eyes and hair. The only children I can't do this for is brunettes with brown eyes. A small thing I know, but it would really help the younger children as it is a visual clue.

  • We have seen some slowness of the User Interface sometimes
  • It is not as straightforward to use for beginners. People need to be trained to benefit from the whole features of Workboard
  • On a personal note, I am used to more advanced project management tools, like Microsoft Project, I especially like their timeline view, shared resources, gantt chart etc.
  • With adding more and more features, it tends to be more complicated and harder to be used by non software development people. In my view this is the biggest advantage that Workboard has at the moment.

It's not perfect but it is really easy to use and I think most slightly technical people will pick it up quite quickly.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

Alternatives Considered

Vastly better-. Much easier to set up, edit and view across multiple platforms.

Workboard vs Microsoft Project(and its Server) is like comparing a regular sport car with Formula 1 cars. One is lighter, nicer, with a broader audience, it gets you there fast while the other one is dedicated, not as nice, especially built for it, not for everyone and it will get you there much faster.

Return on Investment

  • Too early to tell. I hope that it will allow for both a task-specific view that helps people keep on schedule with projects and higher-level views that help with tactical and strategic planning.

  • Using Workboard improved the project management for non software projects, like finance, HR or supply chain.
  • It increased the people's sense of ownership, making them think about results and deliveries on time.
  • It made project status reports easier.
  • Reduced communication via email.
  • Eliminated the usage of out of sync Excel files, offline tracking of action items.
