Likelihood to Recommend

Allocadia

Although the Analytics part is already available it could be improved. So for now Allocadia is very recommended if you are looking for a data maintenance software but less appropriate as a analysis tool. Ask yourself what is it you are looking for (analysis or controlling) and for which purposes (management level or specialists). The costs are very resonable and an absolute Plus!

Workfront

Workfront is well suited for mid to large creative-driven agencies. It is less useful for small or consulting-based firms. It supports waterfall project management well when you have a clear, linear process for a deliverable. It is more difficult to utilize in an agile environment. It is well suited for simple rate cards but does not adjust well to high variety of rate cards/structures.

Pros

Allocadia

  • The user interface is clean, well-thought out, and easy for marketers to use. It behaves like their spreadsheets in all the right ways...without the baggage of having budgets locked into separate spreadsheets.
  • Allocadia knows that revenue attribution is important, and has great out-of-the-box adapters to flow actual spend and actual performance in to the tool.
  • The reporting engine is both substance and style. Data is accurate, can be sliced-and-diced, and is easy for marketers to get what they want in an ad hoc fashion, if a canned report does not already exist. The visuals are also excellent, which promotes the use of analysis.

Workfront

  • Workfront has a nice interface and it is especially easy to get started with development projects.
  • You can easily configure dashboards and monitor planned activities.
  • Create to-do lists to organize and customize the workflow for each project.
  • It allows integration with other tools for collaboration throughout the organization and the exchange of information.
  • It features easy-to-define templates for to-do lists and projects.
  • The best features are project organization, calendar, and email integration.

Cons

Allocadia

  • The wording between the "plan" and "forecast" sections can be confusing at first, as they both imply the same type of activity.
  • Better recovery options for admins if folders are accidentally deleted - had this happen and took a week of manual recreation from an internal admin to get us up and running again.
Nick Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workfront

  • Workfront is not the most user-intuitive platform for all. There will need to be significant training periods for end-users.
  • The User Interface can be more confusing when compared to like-options in the market.
  • It is a large and expansive program - therefore, executive updates are somewhat difficult within the platform.

I am hesitant to comment on renewal in detail because we haven't been using the system for very long. But I am encouraged by the speed and ease of implementation, and look forward to getting to know the system better.

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 gave a rating of 10 on overall usability because Workfront is cloud based and very easy to use. Workfront also provides collaboration on projects which is critical to a projects success. The tool gives everyone high level visibility in their projects down to the smallest detail. Wonderful project management system, allows you to cut down on emails, meetings and no more spreadsheets for tracking your projects.

Maintenance is required, but usually after work hours, Some days the proofing tool function is not operational, but this is a new function of the tool that WF is working out. the kinks on. Chrome is the best browser to use the system in and we find Firefox and Explorer lose some view functionality - Gantt Chart, Resource Grid

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.

Most people learn as you go, a lot of this stuff requires trial and error throughout so my suggestion is to provide as much information in the upfront and keep it as simple as possible. You can add other tools and features as you go but everyone should have the basics down so no bad habits can start to develop. Be persistent with everyone, and don't be afraid to correct and talk through steps again so everyone is on the same page

Alternatives Considered

Allocadia

Our Marketing IT Director vetted out the different products and we were sent Allocadia to test. Due to how we run our media and marketing department, this was really the only solution I saw since it most closely aligned with how we run our media.

I love that Workfront is easy to configure and change as your organization grows. It's easy to stay up to speed with and make changes based on system changes and your organization changing. I also am in love with the reporting and custom data features. Custom forms and the ability to manipulate them to get data has been invaluable in every organization I've been in to date that has used Workfront.

Our projects can get quite large and then they slow down when they get too big. I really don't like the new "1-250" which you can adjust to "All" but why are they doing that in the first place? Because they cannot keep track of all the tasks. That is a poor level of scaleability.

Return on Investment

Allocadia

  • Allocadia's integration with Salesforce.com allows for complete marketing and sales funnel tracking, conversion, and spend analytics.
  • Allocadia's visual display and representation of ROI is incredibly helpful for end users.
  • Allocadia's analytic capabilities allow you to refine your marketing tactics by analyzing trends, allowing you to choose the most effective marketing activities, or types of marketing activities.
Joshua Jamieson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workfront

  • Hard to quantify just yet as we've only been live with the system in my function for, 3 months, however, it seems to have reduced time creating manual reports and decks for leadership and the reports I've seen offer greater insights into tracking statuses and risk potential.
  • Negative might be the upfront cost of each user and the access capabilities of each user aren't the greatest at being able to be customized in terms of data restrictions.
