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.

Wrike

Wrike is a great fit for teams who need significant reporting capabilities, strong collaboration tools, and the ability to create dynamic project templates. It might be overkill for small teams who don't need as much cross-team visibility, who prefer in-person or chat-based project collaboration, or whose work doesn't require repeatability of project templates.

Pros

Workfront

  • Time management resources are incredibly efficient: One can utilize the platform to give realistic work goals and objectives.
  • Data Management: Workfront enables users to view custom reports, manage projects costs, and much more.
  • Project planning is extremely in depth: One can set and visualize projects in a variety of ways.

Wrike

  • Their interface is intuitive and easy to use. It's clean, and I really like both their mobile app (iPhone) and their desktop app (Mac).
  • Customizing workflows and approval processes is relatively easy, and adding to multiple projects with multiple assignees and watchers is excellent.
  • The organization is excellent and intuitive. Search functionality is pretty great. Both make it super easy to find what you're looking for... new, old, completed, etc.
  • Really like the different views - Konbon, list view, etc. If you're used to Trello, Basecamp, Asana, etc... there's a view that's pretty comfortable to you.

Cons

Workfront

  • 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.
Jen Franz | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

  • Minor - assigning a default user. Each time I add a task now I have to assign a user. With me as the primary user, I would love to be able to set myself as a default. I've read some discussion on this and it can be done if you add the task under "My Work." When I'm adding multiple tasks, that extra step seems counterproductive.

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.

Wrike is a free resource for us currently, we moved off the subscription as the team had some adjustments. If we were to go back to a paid model or require more time reporting I'd have to look at alternatives such as Podio. I am the sole manager of Wrike currently internally, and would like to get more people on board to justify the cost

Usability

Workfront

Workfront 8.0
Based on 17 answers
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.

Wrike provides a great deal of flexibility that allows you to structure it to best serve your needs. The interface is well designed so that features are convenient to use. Some features are limited to the Enterprise license which is more expensive which stops me from providing a 10 rating.

Reliability and Availability

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!

Over two years of (almost) daily usage without outages. Don't remember any errors. I give it 9 only because some Wrike plugins (for online document edit) are based on NPAPI architecture. These types of plugins are being phased out in new browsers, and NPAPI plugins are disabled by default in recent versions of Chrome so you have to do some browser adjustments when you switch browsers or move to another computer.

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 technical support is decent, but we've really struggled with regular user support. At one point, we had been assigned a customer success manager, and then never heard from them once. We really like Jed Duso, our account manager, and really enjoyed the Wrike Conference

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.

Wrike does a great job of provide a breadth of videos for learning their program. This includes a 'getting started' sett of videos along with a collection of more in depth videos to assist more experienced users. Combined with their excellent chat support learning wrike is easy and it includes easy access to best practices.

Alternatives Considered

Workfront

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.
John Rozeboom, CSM, PMP | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

Wrike feels a lot like a more powerful Asana. And Workfront - well - we had a lot of issues with that system. It may have just been too big for our needs, but Wrike felt just right for an organization of our size with our needs.

Scalability

Workfront

Workfront 9.1
Based on 2 answers
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

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.

Wrike

  • General organization! We have everything in one place and less falls through the cracks.
  • We are less likely to lose clients because we do our work more efficiently and can fully communicate what we've done for them.
  • We are more of a team because we're all on the same page instead of struggling to figure out where everyone is at with a project.
