Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why.

If you're looking for a system to help you address accounting that's not suited for marketing agency structures, this is the right tool. It is a bit cumbersome, but it has streamlined our reporting, billing, estimating, and tracking. As for project management, it's great that it integrates with the estimating and finances, but it's just not enjoyable to use. The interface is clunky. So if project management is your main criteria, I'd choose something else. We would never use it to collaborate with clients either because I'd be afraid of making them frustrated by the tool, so we use Basecamp to do that.

if you're managing more than 30 projects at a time, and have a minimum of 10 employees, WMJ is great. If you want a full end-to-end, integrated solution with strong reporting, WMJ is great. If you're tired of switching between FreshBooks, Teamwork Projects, and Trello, WMJ is for you. If your workload is below this, look elsewhere. If you have a low tolerance for middling interfaces, look elsewhere. If you love integrations with other SaaS platforms, you're out of luck here.

I think this holds true to almost any CRM, but if you want to truly utilize it you sort of need to go all in. This can become tough with WMJ because it doesn't offer some critical options that many other CRMs do, like the ability to create and send emails, e-newsletters, to throttle and invite outside clients to look at projects, etc. As such we're pairing Workamajig with Hubspot (and slowly phasing out Mailchimp) and trying to keep the data clean and flowing between them all is pretty tough. I'm also not aware of any API bridge from Wordpress to Workamajig so while I can program and feed my leads from my site into the other spaces, Workamajig remains a manual entry for any insertions you want, even if simply as a CSV import.

But - if you're not worried about that and simply want to manage projects, budget time, and scope things, it's a robust system allowing you to do so.

It is very well suited for project management and account services. It isn't very useful for the Creative department.

This is definitely well-suited for any agency. When needing to keep track of time for billing and time spent against a project this is a good solution. Project managers will find it easy to understand project burn rate and be able to add tasks. Individual contributors will easily see where they are with their allocated hours for a task or project.

Workamajig is well suited for advertising accounts because it is the one-stop-shop to keep all projects moving forward. It's easy to keep track of who the task is currently on and the dates are great to provide to the client. It would be less appropriate for ongoing projects since JIG has so many dates to input.

I'd say Workamajig is great for mid-sized agencies like ours. Controlling the way users use Workamajig is important and if our business was much larger it could be difficult to streamline.

Workamajig is great for larger workforces. We currently have anywhere from 10-15 people involved in different stages of a project. This really helps coordinate both comunication as well as work flow. You can have one person take point and help move processes along. It also has helped us create a more streamlined process and helps keep people from dropping the ball along the way.

The biggest area for improvement in my eyes is the lack mobile capability.

This is a good piece of software for mid-size companies looking for a project management system to streamline the back end of projects.

It's tough to recommend after demoing several other new products on the market, such as Workfront. However, as stated above, Workamajig is one of the only programs that comes pre-built with a Project Request feature that can be submitted by a PM, and the details emailed to potential Marketing Leads who can turn these requests into full-fledged projects, with attached assets, timelines, due dates, categorizations, assigned departments and task workers, etc. This tool would be good to use for a department that manages many projects at once across different programs, but it's difficult to recommend after having experienced poor reporting and Flash-restrictive scenarios.
