Overall Satisfaction with Workfront
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. is a craft brewery with a large portfolio. Our Workfront use started in the Graphics department to manage incoming graphics requests, and has started to catch on across other departments (such as Legal and Supply Chain) in order to keep each other well-communicated on high-level projects. It eliminates the "off the record" background chatter and consolidates all of the information we need into one centralized place.
- Helps organize projects and workflow.
- Templates save time and error.
- Seamless communication across the board.
- Provides accountability.
- It is difficult and time-consuming to learn the interface, and is therefore difficult to get people on board. Employees often miss projects because of the complexity of "Workfront Home," so we use Legacy. It would be nice to be on the most up-to-date version of the interface, and I really want to see the New Workfront Experience. However, we have had no info about this launch since LEAP.
- The DAM is slow and clunky. I have been told that Workfront Library is where Workfront's focus is now driven, but there is concern about whether it has a lot of the same functionality as the DAM. For example, dynamic templates are necessary to what we do for our sales team. It may also be expensive to transition.
- The overarching concept of Workfront is daunting and hard to sell to other departments.
- It's reduced the time and guesswork in gathering information about projects.
This is apples and oranges. Wrike is an easy-to-use tool but now feels very basic compared to Workfront. It was too simplified for our needs, and did not allow us to break down large, high-level projects to the steps that we needed. Workfront allows for a lot more details and adds the ability to add resources that weren't possible with Wrike.
