Hubstaff

Hubstaff is a great find for us in the management of projects easily. It is a fully-featured platform and keeps smart features.
Great program with full robust technology attracts me more and helping a lot. Support needs a lot of improvements. Other
than that, it’s a great platform, definitely recommend this to other businesses as well.

Workfront

A specific example is Heart Month at BJC HealthCare. There were marketing materials, media stories, patient testimonials and events. Using Workfront allowed everyone to keep the list of projects straight. Team members could log their specific projects and provide updates, and tag specific colleagues who might want to utilize their materials or at least be "in the know" about the project.Less appropriate - a specific media story. This is a bulk of my work. Oftentimes media stories pop up quickly and are resolved quickly - and stopping to track in Workfront is a cumbersome task, especially when other colleagues will not be involved. However, it has proved to be useful in tracking for the media relations team specifically.

Pros

Hubstaff

  • Its ease of use and implementation compelled me to prefer this tool over others.
  • I love the way it introduces us day to day latest and simple techniques for managing workflows.
  • The biggest and the major pro of this software is that it plays a vital role in monitoring my remote employees so conveniently.
  • It comprises of best time tracking features.
Emily Fasano | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workfront

  • Its main feature is to help in assigning projects to team members and setting a design in quite a few clicks.
  • The calendar feature is the most promising function of Workfront as the tasks are mentioned on the dates which helps in remembering the task due date.
  • It helps in rememb[ering] tasks and notify[ing] the progress of completion of work along with notifying if the task [is] overdue.
  • Reasonable price.

Cons

Hubstaff

  • [Hubstaff] is limited to integrations, while working on the projects I face difficulty to drag the drop because sometimes the plan requires to be discussed and it becomes a necessity to insert various attachments on the spot so that we could achieve the maximum.
  • Further live chats should be made available.
Jonathan Turner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workfront

  • If agencies do not follow its' intended use, the platform can be overkill in features and complicated to use
  • There are too many options for notifications to users and many of them do not fall into the "just right" category
  • If Project Managers are not using the system as intended, run/timing reports are not accurate and makes it challenging to go back and make updates for the team and run reports for leadership.

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

Workfront's performance has been very good. Everything always feels very fast and snappy in my experience. We have integrated it with custom scripts to create folder structure for media managing our projects. It works very well.

Hubstaff has always responded to support requests in a timely manner and has kept me in the loop of changes.When contacting them about future changes/features they've always been upfront on whether that is a change they are looking to make and when that change may occur. Finally, if the person I have communicated with was unable to resolve, they always escalated to the next best person who can answer/resolve.

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

Hubstaff

Wrike has a task based system that you can clock time against, but it just wasn't flexible enough for the type of work we do, particularly the one offs. HubStaff is also really simple to use, so anyone can get started with it without any training or previous knowledge required. It doesn't take up a lot of space and I can manage it from the top of my screen in addition to the app itself. It also has a phone app which is great if some employees occasionally travel

Jira is mostly used as a bug locking tool or to track any new development for any specific region/EPIC. But Workfront has a lot of other features which are beneficial in project management. I still consider Jira and Workfront my top two options for project management and believe both have some of the other useful features which are required to manage any team.

Our organization has thousands of users that use Workfront and it seems to hold up very well. I have not encountered any issues using it and I think it makes it very easy for multiple people to be involved in a project and keep things organized and clear for everyone involved.

Return on Investment

Hubstaff

  • The availability of the recording feature is the biggest plus of this software so that I can easily record things that can be proved helpful to me further.
  • It has replaced timesheets with spreadsheets and this is how it makes my work easier and interesting for me.
Emily Fasano | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workfront

  • I'll admit... they sort of had to drag me kicking and screaming into using Workfront. I feared that it was going to be one of those things where it took more time to document/track what you're doing than it took to actually do it. Fortunately that turned out not to be the case. We've found a good balance between tracking things and not having to "feed the beast" all the time.
  • Workfront has absolutely changed the way my team works from a process standpoint. Previously, there was no way for us to quantify creative work, evaluate workloads of the creative staff or effectively capture the back and forth that accompanies a creative project. Workfront has solved all of these for us and more.
