Overall Satisfaction with Workfront

  • Centralize projects in one solution
  • Manage digital work processes
We use WF mainly for all of our marketing projects. Internal clients submit requests for projects and work through the process from idea to product/final result in WF. We will soon add the work hours tracking tool, a customized scorecard to determine projects priority as well as implement Proof HQ.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • We've definitely be able to see the number of projects we complete in a year.
  • We've been able to manage our productivity and our workload.
  • Being able to house communication and workflow within a project has been a great help with workflow and time management.
Workfront was hands down our choice. It seemed to have the most streamlined processes and capabilities.
We've managed to get a few of our vendors working within WF and it saves time and really stream lines the process.
It is well suited for all types of project management. It is able to absorb and extract data in many forms.
