Overall Satisfaction with Workfront

We currently have 2 instances at Bloomberg: Marketing and Media. I represent Marketing. We predominantly on-boarded Workfront for our internal creative studio, but we are working to move the rest of Marketing on when the budget allows. It would effectively double our license count so its a bit cost prohibitive at this early stage in our Workfront relationship (we launched in July 2017).
  • Reporting is amazingly flexible and robust
  • The administration is easy, and if I can't figure it out for my users, the Help team can and does it quickly.
  • It has given us a transparency to all levels of work that was previously unheard of
  • I'd like a better organization of reports and dashboards. We have way too many reports right now, which is our own issue, but... finding the right one is a challenge.
  • I'd like to better understand the new Homepage, but I'm hoping its much more customizable
  • Still too early for us to measure.
Homegrown Tools

Workfront blows them all away. There is nothing to say about them. Workfront runs laps around these things.
I think there is a stigma that you cannot force a process on creativity. But the reality is it can enable it. I'd like to know we have a partner in Workfront that is not purely tool based, but help us prove the value proposed to users and stakeholders... help us convince them that following basic procedures is valuable to them and the bigger picture.
