Workamajig

I'd say Workamajig is great for mid-sized agencies like ours. Controlling the way users use Workamajig is important and if our business was much larger it could be difficult to streamline.

Pros

  • ArchiOffice helps me manage my time throughout the work day.
  • ArchiOffice helps me to understand how much time I have allocated to each client and to give me a realistic view on how long each task actually takes.
  • ArchiOffice gives me a breakdown of the time and expenses our company has allocated to each project.

  • Detailed scheduling for project management
  • Moving a task through a set process from one person to another
  • Being able to take a look at all jobs from a high level view to see where there are interruptions or pain points

Cons

  • I would like to see more of a scheduling component, to manage projects across our project team.
  • I would like to receive a notification if a project is going over budget.
  • I have to remember to double click to clear a contact, or the contact will be overridden.

  • It is not an intuitive system. It is Flash-based, so you won't be able to access and run it fully on some mobile devices. There is no drag and drop functionality, and some features are hidden deep behind several clicks. The learning curve is steep.
  • The reporting feature leaves much to be desired. The data that the out-of-the-box reports contain is very limited, and does not offer solid cumulative metrics across multiple projects. Of course there are third-party add-ons that improve the reporting experience, but those incur an additional cost, and Workamajig is already on the high end of price points. Customizable reports are an option, but the system is convoluted, difficult to navigate, and very difficult to update.
  • Managing project timelines is a harrowing experience. Workamajig offers many ways to view your timeline and upcoming task schedule, such as Gantt charts, but the process of updating the timelines when your scope inevitably changes is very tedious. Again, this is a Flash program, and it runs rather slow, and doesn't always do what you want. I've even resorted to using a separate scheduling application (SmartSheet) to avoid managing the timeline in Workamajig.

Alternatives Considered

I love Harvest, especially compared to Archioffice. It's very intuitive, simply designed and easy to use. Perhaps the billing isn't as robust or customizable as Archi, but I would take it over Archi any day.

Customization and Project Request submission were two of the biggest draws that our organization valued back when our contract with Workamajig started. Those two features were deemed more important than some of its inadequacies. However, the project management products have come a very long way in the past five years, so we felt it necessary to move on. We had to modify our department's process of handling project requests and submissions, but the features gained, such as cumulative reporting, mobile access and asset management, have paid dividends.

Return on Investment

  • ArchiOffice helps us manage our day to day time.
  • I would like ArchiOffice to manage future time better with project time projections.
  • ArchiOffice helps us manage our monthly expenses.

  • It's had a positive impact in terms of organizing the dozens of projects that land in the multi-channel marketing department over the course of the year. Being able to customize and tailor the product specifically for your organization's needs is a big plus.
  • It is difficult to know how many open projects each person has -- often times, if someone else holds up the project, your tasks remain incomplete, and there's no good way to track how busy someone is based on project load... in reality, the story is much different than the data that Workamajig offers.
  • The price point is very high. Our organization started using it four or five years ago, but moved onto another Project Management platform after seeing how quickly the market has changed. Lack of mobile access to Workamajig, as well as lackluster reporting and running on Flash make it difficult to recommend.
