Workfront

I work on a team where each of us is separated individually from the United States. Workfront enables us to collectively collaborate on a common project setting individual goals. Project managers can invite users, send out updates and set goals to be marked as complete by individual users. Definitely an AAA+ option for global team project collaborations. Smaller projects with fewer working participants would most likely not benefit from the ROI for this product, however, if these smaller tasks are building to a larger project or your teams have multiple small projects running simultaneously then Workfront is for you as well.

Pros

Workfront

  • WF enabled us to provide a complete culture shift when tracking marketing and design projects. We now have a place that captures as many details as needed to get a project started and worked through. It's been a great way to know the number of projects we're working on and accountability on all parts to maintain a timeline that respects everyone's needs.
  • We pull reports that are able to show our board of directors the type of work we're doing and how we are doing it.
  • We are able to have transparency between departments to have an understanding of everyone's needs, strengths, and deliverables.

Cons

Workfront

  • In terms of what Workfront could do differently or improve, the poser of the search features is in their ability to gather any type of data within the application. Results can occasionally be dense and could use the ability of applying a second level of filtering. Adding in constraints of variables such as date or job could be very helpful in reducing results and saving time.
  • Constantly adding to the available APIs is helpful but perhaps focus groups to figure out some of the emerging application and technologies for which APIs should be added would perhaps be useful. Of course, this could already be taking place without my knowledge...
  • Certain features such as projects specific data might benefit from the ability to take them offline in small quantities .

Workfront (formerly AtTask) is simply the finest project management tool I've ever used. It has the best features of Project (e.g. ease of use to see Gannt charts or task lists) but with robust reporting and easy communication via Updates? it's a hit.

I would recommend all user's using Workfront to go through the training material provided. Have all user's practice in the Sandbox environment and have your workflow documented for the consultant before he arrives on site.

Alternatives Considered

Workfront

Workfront is the large enterprise version of a simple project management tracking software. It covers all the right areas one needs but also can become too complex at the same time. It is all about how the end user applies the features and overall process flow. The software is very easy to use making it user friendly to anyone just starting out with it. All the various reports have proven to be beneficial for all areas of our team.
