Overall Satisfaction with Workfront

If a sales rep within our company wants to use our dept, they must enter a special opportunity into Sales Force. We have the ability to approve or reject. If we approve, an integration begins to dump information into WorkFront. From there - we select tasks from a master template and assign resources. We have multiple depts across the US and are able to check availability of resources based on planned times within WorkFront. We use a standard template of tasks and are able to determine average time and average duration of the individual tasks to use as a starting point for future projects. We then estimate the difficulty level of the task and assign time accordingly.
  • Centralize projects in one solution
  • Extremely customizable
  • Searchability - can search in so many different ways and find past data easily even if you only have a small piece
  • Since we do everything on a back schedule - it would be nice if the tasks that are previously completed would not pull forward into the resource grid
  • It would be nice to have a Resource Grid based on Actual Hours in addition to the Planned Hours - to determine where time was actually spent.
  • Improves Efficiency and allows us to work in multiple locations with access to same info
  • Allows us to cover in the absence of another employee. I actually covered for a person who quit located 800 miles away for 6 months with minimal negative impact.
  • excel
Prior to this we used excel to manage our projects. We now have more data than ever and have grown to a point where we could never go back to our old ways.

I was able to attend LEAP for the first time last year and impressed with the presentations and event.

I have used the help desk with great success. Currently have an issue that has been outstanding for over a year - but impressed that WorkFront is still pursuing an answer and still trying to determine the cause.

We have, unfortunately, changed reps many times to the point where I do not use any service they may be able to offer. We have used WorkFront as a standalone system with minimal support - but have still had good results.

I think it is a great system to maintain projects and assign tasks. Not sure it is good to store SOPs and the like. I would like to be able to add more detail to my "people" so I could do a search on their talents and understand their strengths and weaknesses. You used to be able to add a skill set in the talk to me about that was searchable so if I needed someone to do something specific - I was able to determine my options.
