Kanban Tool

Kanban is well suited for a fast-paced working environment for larger teams who want continuous communication with users. Kanban is good for rapid development and daily meetings for updates and statuses. Kanban is less suited for smaller teams or groups who don't require collaboration and constant communication with involved users. Kanban is time-consuming and it takes additional effort outside of your regular work to maintain and manage the tool.

Workzone

[Workzone] is an excellent tool for the projects of mid-range to high-range companies. It has the strength to manage workflow and is quite swift. In our case, I haven’t found it lagging and disturbing the normal working of our company. Project management has always been an issue for us but after Workzone we are able to manage it very easily and efficiently and it helped us in enhancing our brand image too. Its reports are highly precise and provide to-the-point information. This software has a little tough User interface that makes it difficult to work on it.

Pros

Kanban Tool

  • It provides a good basic overview of where tasks are on a timeline (particularly helpful for a pull-based approach).
  • It provides a good collaborative space to have multiple folks commenting on multiple tasks.
  • It does a good job of managing very basic visual elements of an agile development cycle.
Chris Carpenter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workzone

  • Provides real time insight on the status of project and breaks down the project column task dependencies, due dates and resources.
  • Real-time updates on project changes and organizing tasks according to priority and date.
  • Producing reports of time spent on each project and these reports can be exported via PDF or Excel
  • A timeline of the whole organization events such as occasions and vacations are visible on the Group Calendar

Cons

Kanban Tool

  • Some of the boards we have could do with more than 22 card colors, although it is enough for most projects.
  • Really looking forward to the iOS application, which is said to be coming in 2015.

Workzone

  • Time management has room for improvement by allowing time to be estimated by an admin so when you are putting in actual time there is a comparison to keep you on point.
  • Your task list does not detail what the project name is so the project name has to be included next to the task, so you have to manually include the project name in the task name.
  • For safety there was an automatic log off, but it was every 15 minutes of idleness which becomes annoying when you are using it constantly throughout the day.
  • Invoicing to multiple vendors, as one would do at an ad agency, is not user friendly or possible in some instances.
  • You cannot view multiple tasks from different projects in one list, so to check schedules and cross things off you have to back out to the main list for a client and then go back into another project which can be cumbersome.

We are more likely than not to renew our use of Kanban. Even with its limits, it still is a good product that fulfills our needs.

Because of time constraints, our team hasn't been able to fully implement and change our existing processes. If we can get our templates set up and maybe some better export options figured out, I think it'll be a no-brainer to renew, but until then it maybe be difficult to financially justify something we're only partially using.

Again, this is a strong tool for software teams using Agile that are distributed across multiple geographies. It can be good for co-located teams too, but there are better platforms on the market like JIRA that provide a more built-out story.

WorkZone was very easy to learn, especially for the members of our team who were not as technology-savvy. WorkZone offered unlimited training as well, making it easy to transition new team members to the program, as we were a startup organization consistently adding new team members.

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

Kanban Tool

Kanban is superior to Scrum and AGILE because it can visually organize all your projects and data into one board. Kanban integrates with JIRA which digs deeper into the project data when it is needed. By integrating Kanban with JIRA, you don't need any other tool for project management that is effective for both the business and the development teams. Kanban is recommended for any user groups who wish to increase their efficiency to deliver products, transparency for all users and on-time productivity.

Workzone

WorkZone is an overall good product. It allows for ease of use, easy integration and has a friendly client interface. It gave us years of service towards delivering rough cuts and storyboards. WorkZone was loved by all of our producers, who became unhappy when we switched, but the need for a library outweighed our fear of confusing our clients with a new website and interface they would have to learn.There is nothing "wrong" with WorkZone or how it is implemented, it's just lacking some features.

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.
