LoadSpring

LoadSpring is great for managing licenses so that a user who hasn't been utilizing the software can be placed inactive so the license isn't being occupied. Managing services and applications is great. You can easily change access through the management portion of the service. Uptime is also very good.

Workfront

This software works great to track your KPI's and to update and monitor your progress on any assignments that are assigned to your and projects you are working on. For simple to-dos and assignments and tasks, etc. it's really effective with a pick list of choices to choose from to update the status, upload files, log hours work, comment, etc. and inform business stakeholders requesting on the progress of a given workfront request it is less appropriate when it comes too it being complex at first, especially if you don't have any training. Like anything newly learned, it takes time and if you're not experienced with project management software you may find yourself in a bit of frustration using it.

Cons

LoadSpring

  • Self-service account reactivation.
  • Integration of instructions on a per application level.
  • Built in linked help for companies using the software.

  • I'd like for us to be able to pull reports that are a bit more customized. For example, I want to pull a report that enables me to see what task went past due first to see where and how we can improve. That report currently exists but unfortunately, it pulls in every other task that is past due in the project...instead of me just being able to pinpoint where we start to lose time.
  • I'd like to be able to "pin" documents and Updates within a Portfolio for easy reference when looking at a project as a whole.

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.

I give Workfront a TEN! When I have had an issue, the response time has been quick. The tech support team has always resolved any issues that I report. For the performance of the Workfront system you can go to trust Workfront to receive daily updates as to the status of the servers. When the system acts sluggish I check here to see if there are any performance issues. If there is an issue they let you know they are working on asap. I have been working in Workfront for 2 years and this has happened three times and has been resolved within 30 minutes, and the system has only went down one time and it was for only 25 minutes, once I reported to the tech team, they were already working on the issue to get it resolved. They are awesome, and hat's off to the whole Workfront team!

LoadSpring support is very quick to respond. They have self-service for support which is great for quick fixes on the end-user side of things. They will respond with a good solution and if they need further assistance from an administrator, and they email them so they can assist the end-user with their issue.

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.

Have all of your existing processes locked down. Be prepared to modify them if Workfront can show you a better way.

Alternatives Considered

LoadSpring

LoadSpring has a great up-time compared to our old hosting service. We haven't had many outages and very few issues while running our concurrent sessions. Automated license management has been great so our active licenses stay very low. I wasn't involved with the purchase and migration but I feel this was the better option.

Workfront lands in the middle between MS Project and Basecamp. Basecamp was too simplistic and didn't provide enough core project / task management features. MS Project was too rigid and difficult to share project information. Workfront has the right mix of project / task management features and project visibility.

We have been using Workfront for about 3 years. During this time they continue to be a very stable project management system. Workfront's overall scalability is able to handle increased loads of work. When using Workfront for a project management tool for the web team, we store documents, images & video's without any issues. They work with their customer's to provide the best project management system in the market today! I highly recommend Workfront for all project management needs. Workfront strives to deliver unique technology solutions to growing companies!

Return on Investment

LoadSpring

  • Great license manager.
  • Has great up-time for hosting our application.
  • Self service account management is non-existent.

Workfront

  • Thirty US dollars + per month, per user, can get a bit pricey for the mid-size business. I am not sure what their enterprise business pricing is, however, I imagine the ROI is well worth it as many corporations I have worked for use Workfront for both project management as well as timesheet tracking.
