We have implemented and integrated Workfront into three departments (R&D, Marketing, and IT). All have experience overall performance gains in productivity. R&D has developed a record number of new products, while streamlining and reducing workloads. Complex projects are now easily managed and delivered. Marketing has expanded the management of media and collateral, implemented more campaigns and increase brand value. IT projects are all now visible and managed. Helpdesk is being converted to the system allowing for better visibility and management of day to day requests from our growing company.

Most people learn as you go, a lot of this stuff requires trial and error throughout so my suggestion is to provide as much information in the upfront and keep it as simple as possible. You can add other tools and features as you go but everyone should have the basics down so no bad habits can start to develop. Be persistent with everyone, and don't be afraid to correct and talk through steps again so everyone is on the same page.

The most important thing that you can do when implementing Workfront is to have your back end data prepared ahead of time. What resources are in what departments? What amount of allocatable hours does each employee have? What are the cost models for each employee and resource? Having all of this information available will allow you to fully utilize Workfront's features.

About Workfront

Workfront is a web-based project-management tool developed by Workfront, formerly AtTask, based in Utah. It was designed for both IT and marketing teams, but can be implemented for any kind of project. Workfront offers all the features standard to project management platforms. Editing and updating issues from the project view is styled to work somewhat similarly to a social networking site, bringing team members together in one central location. From the project view screen, issues, documents, and other elements of the project are placed along a tab bar so that they may be addressed with one click directly from the hub.

The platform's Capacity Planner allows a manager to move resources to where they are needed, and has some automation features (e.g. the Set Best Fit option, which attempts to allocate resources optimally within given constraints). Agile project management is supported with features like Gantt charts, an easily viewable and manipulable backlog, and storyboarding. Team members can be managed with the aid of quantitative metrics that show where work would be best allocated.

A free trial is available, after which Workfront comes in four pricing options. The lowest tier is Collaboration for small groups, followed by Work which adds mobile accessibility and time sheets, then Plan which adds additional analytic, planning, and reporting features. Finally, Enterprise Plus offers the highest configurability as well as support and data security.
