Any sort of database--keeping records of all of our volunteers, recipients, organizations, etc

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

  • very intuitive and simple to use
  • bug-free
  • we are able to formulate it for our needs instead of fitting into someone else's idea of what we need
  • usable across multiple platforms and devices--desktops, laptops, iphones.
  • editing in real time, and several viewers viewing screens from remote locations

  • 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

  • entering a single record seems to have to be done across several screens. Perhaps just the way we did it, but would be easier if it were all done on one screen
  • can't figure out how to "hide" a record once one of the people we are visiting dies. We don't want to delete the record, just hide it from the primary view.
  • eventually, it would be great to be able to integrate into Gmail--eg to hit the email address and have that transfer to an email...but perhaps not possible without permission from google...

  • 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.

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

It wasn't until I became aware of Airtable that we found a solution that allows us to implement the best features of a collaborative RDBMS with our staff who don't have any training. I had previously used Zoho Creator and found that it was difficult to onboard new users because of a steeper learning curve.

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

  • It's too soon to have conclusive evidence of ROI, but I suspect our improved ability to manage our partner and donor relationships will improve, thus leading to positive ROI in the future.

  • 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.
