Overall Satisfaction with Workzone

We are currently using Workzone in our company for scheduling the project team to work on different projects and to manage our time allocated to each client project. We break down each project within Workzone and allocate tasks to interns to better manage our time as a company. Workzone helps us look to the future with our current work load.
  • Manage who is working on each project.
  • Manage time spent on each project.
  • Allocate tasks to team members.
  • If a project is put on hold by the client, Workzone sends me notifications that I am approaching a deadline that is no longer applicable. There needs to be a "on hold" button.
  • Sometimes it is hard to forecast a few months out with projects, so I can only use the program for weekly projections.
  • In my industry, there are daily fires we have to put out per say, that were not accounted for in the program. At that point I dont have time to update the schedule, because it is a moving target.
  • Management of the project team.
  • Management of projects and their budgets
  • Management of client money efficiently
Workzone fills a need and so does ArchiOffice. I would like a hybrid program between the two or a link between the two programs. Workzone and ArchiOffice have a lot to offer our company, but don't currently hold the full package. What about linking to the Outlook calendar with notifications? Still, Workzone had helped me by managing the projects and the team members that work on them.
I would like Workzone to offer more options for time management and a better tracking system for managing the project team. With Workzone, I am relying on everyone in the company to stay current with their scheduling, or the system falls apart. If I need an intern to help me out on a deadline and other colleagues have not updated their schedules, the information I am given on their availability is not accurate.
