Overall Satisfaction with Workfront
We currently use Workfront (WF) to track our Communications projects from submission, to approvals, to delivery. We are currently in the process of building out a second instance of Workfront for another business area, and will eventually build out a process for our web agile teams. Workfront allows our customers to have insights into their projects, creating transparency and accountability for both the writers, designers, account managers, and customers.
- Reduced the re-work of projects.
- Approvals take a long time, and users are slow to respond to requests for approvals.
- Workers were resistant at first. It took time to get buy in.
Workfront has better integration into the tools we use, like Adobe Creative Suite, Outlook, Salesforce, and our CMS and DAM. We needed a solution that could work well with our MarCOMM Stack and didn't need a whole lot of support. Although we're a small shop (license-wise) Workfront has been very supportive and quick to respond to our needs.
For what we do-- project management, tracking, approvals, and reporting-- it's a great fit. Customers love the dashboards and appreciate the dashboards when they realize they provide deeper insights. It provides accountability; when tasks are late, management is automatically notified (it was set up for Admins to notify when a task is 1 day late, and Execs when it's 2 days late).
