Archioffice is only suitable for architect and interior design firms.

Workzone

I think WorkZone is a great program for companies with simpler project management scenarios. It is not as well fitted for advertising agencies and how they operate internally and with clients

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.

  • WorkZone has a wonderful array of features - Project tracker, different "Workspaces" that can be set up for each client, financial tracking, time tracking, calendar functions, etc.
  • There are lots of helpful views like, status by project, project to-do list, workload by responsible party or by category. The project tracker can be filtered to view exactly what you want to view - items in a certain workspace, items by responsible party, only incomplete items, etc.
  • There are lots of customization options to make each space match the brand. For example, each Workspace can be set up with the client logo, colors, etc. Each Workspace can have different access settings, so if you have clients using WorkZone with you, they won't necessarily see your other projects and clients (given the right settings).
  • Project templates are wonderful for projects you do often - you can select an end date or a start date and it will build the timeline for you. You can even assign tasks in the template, if they always go to the same person, or you can leave them blank and add them in later.
  • There are several different options for loading projects into their system - from an Excel template, creating an outline (either basic tasks, or you can add tasks/dates/responsibilities all at once), building from an existing WorkZone template you've created, or importing from MS Project.
  • If you set up WorkZone to use with clients, there are extremely helpful features to help with client review and approvals - it's all done through the system. You can send creative through the system, and the client can provide feedback and send it back. No more digging around for that email that's in your inbox.... somewhere....
  • I've been able to access via computer, mobile and tablet. I occasionally have issues trying to modify things, like trying to check a box from a smaller screen, but projects can still be accessed while on the go.
  • WorkZone has provided excellent support and multiple trainings, on different levels. We did a training for system admins, and a more basic training for users who won't be in the settings and customization pieces. Their customer support, the very few times I've had to use it, has been very responsive.

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.

  • The document manager module is not linked to project tracker. When a project is completed the documents are not automatically archived. They must be manually moved to the archive section of document manager.
  • Multiple versions in document manager still cause problems for our department. We need to develop a process that addresses this issue.
  • When a project is delayed on one task, dates and timelines for dependent tasks are not automatically adjusted. As such, late reminders are sent to dependent responsible parties.
  • System notifications can be controlled by individuals and we haven't found the right mix of notifications for our entire team. Some people receive too many notifications, while others are not receiving enough.

I have used Jira in the past and most like will continue and use it. The WorkZone user experience was so weak that I felt that I was in Excel all day. The issue with the dates was such a head it has really turned me off the product. I really felt that WZ should have been a free product, the user experience made me feel that the product was really cheap

Throughout the use of the WorkZone software, we never had a issue with it being unavailable. This is important, considering we wanted to access our projects and see our progress at any moment. WorkZone was always available and made constant supervision of tasks and goals easy; no excuses for not checking in on the status of a project.

I have zero complaints about the performance of WorkZone; for our organization's needs, it was a perfect tool for keeping track of various responsibilities and tasks. We never experienced a lag or down-time when using the software, and the simple interface made things exactly that from our end...simple. WorkZone is a fantastic tool for work management that never fails to perform, in my experience.

The team at WorkZone is incredibly helpful and very willing to lend support when they can. Our team was constantly growing, and our new team members needed training every time someone cam on board. The WorkZone support staff was more than willing to ensure our new team members were completely comfortable using the software and set up for success.

The WorkZone trainers are wonderful! They offered us unlimited over-the-phone and online support, and the trainings were always informative. The WorkZone support team was willing to answer multiple questions and review sections of the training if need be. They were always accommodating, and trainings were scheduled very quickly for when our team needed them!

Implementation of WorkZone was very easy. We simply log into a portal online and begin to set up our projects. Access codes were sent very quickly to our team, so there was practically no delay once we signed the contract for our subscription. Training was scheduled quickly and was very helpful, especially as new team members joined our organization.

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.

Workzone fills a need and so does ArchiOffice. I would like a hybrid program between the two or a link between the two programs. Workzone and ArchiOffice have a lot to offer our company, but don't currently hold the full package. What about linking to the Outlook calendar with notifications? Still, Workzone had helped me by managing the projects and the team members that work on them.

We are a small organization, so the need to expand our use of WorkZone was limited. I only rate it below a 10 simply because I do not have much experience with the scaleability of the product. From the previews and training sessions, it does seem that the software can easily be adjusted to accommodate a growing workload; something we may use in future, just not at this point in our organization's development.

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.

  • I never had to ask an employee what he or she was working on, because I already knew with WZ.
  • Employee efficiency did increase, for some but not all.
  • Did help us meet our project dues dates.
