Likelihood to Recommend

Opal

I honestly cannot recommend this tool enough. Opal is such a valuable tool for brand content creators and there is nothing like it available. If you're serious about content marketing and have a need to find ways to collaborate, plan and provide more visibility among teams, then Opal really is the only way to go. One more thing that's not being mentioned: The tool is simply amazing but it's only as amazing is the team behind the tool. Their customer support and willingness to quickly be in touch when needed is a key feature within itself. Seriously, such a good team of people.

Workzone

WorkZone would be a great tool for a company that develops content/ideas and has to share them with multiple people/clients. It allows for easy sharing and commenting. For a company that creates content for web, radio or television and would like to store them for presentation purposes- then you might want to look elsewhere.WorkZone was everything we needed and wanted until we started to expand. We've recommended WorkZone to a few companies and two of them are using it today. One of those clients does construction. They use WorkZone to share building schematics and ideas throughout their company and on the job site. We are working with them on a job that they are constructing and they've added us as a 'client user' to access items that are beneficial towards the ads we're creating.

Pros

Opal

  • Content planning: you can look at one asset and see how it is being used across multiple channels by multiple teams.
  • Content collaboration: it is really easy to see what other people and teams are contributing to an asset, or how they are using it. We can also duplicate content that was created by another team to use as a starting point in our own content collaboration.
  • High level/big picture overview: Opal allows us to see content that is being created, planned and scheduled very easily; it goes beyond social content (which we can also see in Sprinklr) to show us content created across multiple channels.

Workzone

  • WorkZone is good at basic project management like scheduling and time management.
  • The software can be set to send you a daily email with the list of the tasks that you need to get done for that day.
  • Workzone allows the admin for the account to pick and choose which clients/projects can be seen by each person with an account, which allows each user to focus on the projects that they are involved in without being distracted by other things.

Cons

Opal

  • No publishing capabilities, for the most part.
  • No analytics tie-ins.
  • Rather pricey.
  • Requires someone to really manage the structure in order to keep the tool organized and use it effectively. When this is done right, though, it's worthwhile.

Workzone

  • I researched numerous project management software programs before deciding on WorkZone. WorkZone had all of the capabilities that we needed, ie web based, ease of use, reporting, resource allocation, cost effective. I felt that this was the best off-the-shelf software on the market. Unless you can create your project management software in-house, you will not have every thing that would like from the software. Off the shelf --- they are designing for the masses and every company is unique in their processes and procedures.

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.

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.

Workzone

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

Opal

  • Opal allows for more discipline in marketing as teams are better aligned on messaging and big moments.
  • Opal cuts down on communication breakdowns and mistakes, which in the end leads to more happy customers.
  • I think Opal provides the team with more confidence as everyone is on the same page. With everything in one place rather than communications being lost in emails, etc., everyone is more efficient and can work knowing that there is one source of truth.
Kenji Onozawa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workzone

  • It has positively affected our workflow - keeping projects moving without requiring constant back and forth of emails and other communications.
  • It has helped our team to avoid missing crucial steps in project and client management.
  • We are definitely more efficient when WorkZone is being used and updated properly!
