Workfront overview

Workfront is online enterprise work management software that provides a 360-degree view of all workplace activities, helping both team members and management alike to better understand and organize their work, improving workflows and productivity. With Workfront, managers can evaluate potential and current projects, set sound strategic and financial objectives, validate corporate initiatives, and promote and execute those projects that provide the greatest business value.

Workfront enables businesses to have a 360-degree view of work across the enterprise, helping team members and leaders to better understand and organize their work. Because successful project leaders understand that those doing the work understand it the best, making work assignments has evolved into a more collaborative process that gives individual workers more control over what they do and when they do it. This democratization of the work management process empowers workers to contribute maximum value and gives executives visibility into all projects and other work, creating workplace harmony by enfranchising workers and informing executives. Workfront supports this modern approach to work with enabling technologies that promote workplace harmony, while increasing efficiency.

The new work management paradigm enables managers to evaluate potential and current projects, set the right strategic and tactical objectives, validate corporate initiatives and promote and execute those projects that provide the greatest business value.

It helps us save time when it comes to resource allocation and time management. The reporting features helps upper-management better understand what we are doing and how much time it takes to do it. I love how they are constantly pushing updates that help improve the tool based on user feedback.I have been a Workfront user for a few years now and am a big proponent of this project management tool for several reasons. 1) I find it very intuitive for users to use 2) It is easily customized based on the needs of your users 3) The reporting feature is worth the price of admission itself 4) Their support team is quick to respond and the self-help area is robust so you can find an answer to any question you may come across 5) Workfront offers a comprehensive training tool that covers several types and levels of training for users at all levels including frequent live trainings 6) The Community area is a great place to share ideas and ask for help from other users 7) They are constantly making updates and improvements to the tool 8) The Workfront Proof viewer is a great feature for those who want to markup and share creative within a project. We looked at several solutions and I'd say that Workfront was by far the best option for our internal creative agency.

Complete and powerful PM information system with some areas to improve

Reviewed 2015-10-22
Review Source: GetApp

Working in an in-house marketing department, we have been using Workfront for three years to manage our projects and operations. We need overall visibility on all the activities of our department, plus a powerful collaboration platform. Our main aim using Workfront is to manage the capacity vs workload of our department and to be able to forecast the demand. Workfront is fulfilling our basic needs, but we feel that there is a lack of ability to create clear dashboards or to have a better visibility of critical task between multiple projects at the same time (which happens when several campaigns overlap). There are other points to improve (see Cons below), but it seems that folks at Workfront are committed to improve those areas and correct the product weaknesses.Logging hours is not painful (as it actually sounds), there are several choices to input them and it’s quite easy to get used to the habit. The collaboration features are very good: comments, sharing if documents, approvals... Work requests via assignments are clear and provide accountability. Integrated document proofing and versioning is a must for any creative department and this one works really well. Workfront support is quick and responses are elaborated, always providing a workaround if there isn't a functionality to match your need.

I'll admit... they sort of had to drag me kicking and screaming into using Workfront. I feared that it was going to be one of those things where it took more time to document/track what you're doing than it took to actually do it. Fortunately that turned out not to be the case. We've found a good balance between tracking things and not having to "feed the beast" all the time.Workfront is quite versatile for tracking projects and larger workflows. We use it for individual projects, ongoing work efforts, and even tracking ideas for future development. Other areas of our business use it as a request queue as well, which helps us to put in requests with our communication team and even log suggestions for office improvements. A decent (but not mindblowing) reporting suite with text and simple graphic output helps share status updates.

Workfront Review

Reviewed 2018-10-25
Review Source: Capterra

We have dozens of projects every day, with different employees in different capacities working on them -- project managers, team leaders, supervisors, editors, writers, graphic designers, proofreaders, strategists. Everyone's input and progress can now be corralled in one place. We have a clear window view in to how the project is going and who might need help with what. Everything is documented in one thread so there is no hiding from a mistake or missed deadline. We can take people outside of the task, like our Legal Department, to get their insight on certain matters. What I like most about Workfront is the visibility it gives to employees and project managers as they navigate a workload from week to week. If 10 people are working on the same task, they can communicate through Workfront channels with respect to questions, concerns and updates. And everything is documented. So, if a conflict arises, we can just go back through the Workfront thread and see what happens. Documentation is so important, especially when you have dozens of projects going at one time.

GetApp Analysis

More than just a basic project management application, Workfront is a complete enterprise work management solution. Designed for mid-market and enterprise-level organizations, Workfront offers users robust PPM capabilities that allow to be managed from the top down, while also providing the ease of use and team collaboration capabilities that support work management from the bottom up.

Workfront encompasses all work, including planned and unplanned work, for technical users and business stakeholders, running all the way from initial requests through final reports. Among Workfront’s most innovative high-level features are project and portfolio management, resource management, workflow and automation, request management, approvals, notifications and updates, social collaboration, document management, reports and dashboards, time tracking, mobile access, and Agile project management capabilities.


What is Workfront?

Workfront provides organizations with a unified work environment where individuals and teams can connect across the work lifecycle. Workfront provides its users with complete project visibility, along with reporting tools for executives, stakeholders, and project managers.

The grass roots work management approach that Workfront utilizes is growing in popularity, as organizations of all sizes begin realizing the power of using a single system of engagement. In addition to facilitating project planning and management, Workfront enables the execution of all kinds of formal and ad hoc work using any methodology, including Waterfall, Agile, and a mix of the two.

By combining these benefits together with a variety of social collaboration features, Workfront has been able to design a solution that serves as an alternative to the disconnected tools that many organizations are accustomed to using.


Who is Workfront for?

Workfront was designed for mid-market and enterprise-level organizations. Within this sphere, Workfront has clients in virtually every vertical market, including IT, healthcare, financial services, public sector, manufacturing, marketing and advertising, and consumer packaged goods.

Workfront also has a dedicated focus on information technology (IT), solution implementation teams, in-house creative teams, and agencies–along with broad applicability to internal application development, new product development, and other enterprise use cases.


Main features

Agile Project Management

Workfront enables teams to work however they want, utilizing any methodology, including Agile, Waterfall, or a mix of the two. Die-hard Agile devotees can rely on Workfront to blend their chosen methodology with the convenience of an enterprise work management system.

Workfront’s Agile project management module combines the benefits of an Agile platform, while eliminating the communication barriers that often trip teams up. Workfront stands apart from competing solutions by supporting both Agile and Waterfall projects in a single product, leveraging native functionality, and at no additional cost. Most importantly, Workfront uniquely allows organizations to roll up Agile work into more traditional project plans, meeting the process needs of Agile development teams AND the data requirements of executives and business stakeholders doing milestone-based planning.

Resource Management

Resource management tools allow organizations to balance the workloads of individual employees or teams. Workfront’s Smart Assignments feature automatically suggests which employees would be best suited for specific tasks. Managers can quickly review what each employee has on his or her schedule before assigning any new projects.

See what each of your employees has on his or her plate before assigning new tasks. Enter the skills and the available time required to complete a certain task, and Workfront will quickly identify the individuals best suited for the assignment. In making these determinations, Workfront uses a combination of data and complex algorithms.

Project Management & Tasks

Projects are never static. Rather, they are living, breathing organisms that change and shift over time. Using Workfront’s project management features, groups can create task lists and assign tasks to specific individuals. Users can also view updates and issues in one, centralized place.

Using Workfront’s inline editing features, you can edit your list of tasks and adjust due dates based on realistic timelines and expectations. These changes are handled through real-time collaboration capabilities and an easy-to-use “My Work” screen, which eliminates the need for you to waste time navigating from project to project or page to page.

Custom Dashboards

With Workfront, organizations can collect data and create customized views for complete visibility. Rather than spending hours compiling data, businesses are able to leverage Workfront’s reporting capabilities to keep on top of key metrics.

Select from the more than 50 out-of-the-box reports that come included with Workfront. You can customize any report using the platform’s drag-and-drop tools. You can also tailor reports with customized views and filtering based on user permissions and roles.


Integrations

Workfront offers out-of-the-box integrations with Microsoft Outlook and document management solutions like SharePoint, Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Docs, and Box. Integration with ProofHQ is available to facilitate document review, markup, and approvals.

Workfront also features an open, RESTful API that allows partners and customers to easily integrate the application with third-party products and tools. Several of Workfront’s partners have leveraged its API to build connectors between Workfront and CRM solutions like Salesforce.com and PeopleSoft; Agile ALM tools like JIRA, and Microsoft Team Foundation Server; and ERP products like Oracle and SAP.


Pricing

Workfront offers two primary license types: Plan licenses, which include advanced functionality for project and resource managers, and Work licenses, which provide functionality for team members and individual contributors. Workfront also offers a Collaboration package that enables occasional project participants—such as executive sponsors or external contractors—to submit and track requests; review, approve, and comment on tasks and projects; and leverage helpdesk capabilities.

Customers have the option to choose the optimal mix of each license type to meet their needs and adjust the mix based on actual usage. Workfront also offers optional add-ons for things like increased storage, digital proofing, premium-level support, post-implementation consulting, data encryption at rest, and additional sandbox entitlements.

  • Robust enterprise work management solution
  • Supports Agile and traditional Waterfall development methodologies in parallel
  • Creates visibility that teams can use for prioritization, justification, and alignment
  • Easy for organizations to adopt and use
