Workamajig

Workamajig is great for larger workforces. We currently have anywhere from 10-15 people involved in different stages of a project. This really helps coordinate both comunication as well as work flow. You can have one person take point and help move processes along. It also has helped us create a more streamlined process and helps keep people from dropping the ball along the way. The biggest area for improvement in my eyes is the lack mobile capability.

Pros

  • Time tracking because you can account for almost every single minute of your day with detailed descriptions attached. The reporting of time came in very good use when clients questioned billing.
  • Robust billing portal that was pretty customizable.
  • Could track employee costs well once the correct numbers were placed into the system. Came in very handy for billing and company budgeting and projections.

  • Project Request submission. This is a feature that is difficult to find in other Project Management tools, and we have looked at several dozen while researching the latest products on the market. Project Requests allow a project manager to fill out what type of project is needed, then the Marketing Lead would receive an email with the Request data, and easily turn this request into a full-fledged Project.
  • The customization is very good. Workamajig staff will work with your organization to determine exactly what features your team needs, and then customize the project experience catered to your organization. You can choose which data to display, what fields to fill in, how to organize each project, and so forth.

Cons

  • The overall layout and physical design of the portals could be simplified greatly. The program is anything but intuitive to use.
  • I found myself clicking what felt like a 1,000 times just to complete one small task. Billing was very cumbersome and the program did not integrate smoothly with Quickbooks as was previously promised.
  • Saving and making templates for billing etc. was a tedious process that also cost extra!
  • The program is as good as what you put into it, but they designed the software for a more particular one-sided way to work and manage, so it made customizing a project to your companies methods tricky.
  • Overall a very cumbersome program that looks as if it was designed at the start of the millennium and note 16 years into it.

  • 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

  • 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.
