Amazon Chime

Amazon Chime is a superior alternative to other free video conference/conference call programs. The call and video quality are great, and you can have multiple participants on both video and call. It's well suited for an organization that wants an affordable option for video and conference calls, but may not be appropriate for organizations with limited budgets or those who do very little conferencing.

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.

Pros

  • The one thing Amazon Chime has going for it is it is backed by its top tier web services platform. Amazon Chime may not have the market share yet, but it has the visibility and commitment from its development teams to be a mainstay in conferencing for the foreseeable future.
  • Amazon Chime offered a very easy to use interface that is friendly not only through the desktop application but the web and mobile interfaces.
  • Amazon Chime offers a variety of ways to allow first-time users to join meetings. Either through standard invites and meeting ID's etc. It is easy to get new people, customers or first time/one time users involved, collaborating and contributing.

  • 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

  • Amazon Chime does have a feature to chat within the conference room with the audience but does not offer the function to select a specific user and private chat them. This could pose some issues when trying to ask questions to the presenter but not wanting it to be public. If this function exists, it's not easily identified.
  • It would be very beneficial for Amazon Chime to be an industry leader in allowing cross-platform integration without full software downloads. It would be nice to be able to see one of these major companies allow to join through any platform such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, WebEx etc.
  • Amazon Chime could afford to develop some additional plugins to allow users to quickly escalate into a conference. Such as Teams plugin or connector, Microsoft Outlook or even apple!

  • In terms of what Workfront could do differently or improve, the poser of the search features is in their ability to gather any type of data within the application. Results can occasionally be dense and could use the ability of applying a second level of filtering. Adding in constraints of variables such as date or job could be very helpful in reducing results and saving time.
  • Constantly adding to the available APIs is helpful but perhaps focus groups to figure out some of the emerging application and technologies for which APIs should be added would perhaps be useful. Of course, this could already be taking place without my knowledge...
  • Certain features such as projects specific data might benefit from the ability to take them offline in small quantities .

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

I believe Amazon Chime is better, easier to use, and had better quality video/audio

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!
