Brad Brand

Very positive

2017-06-01

The workflows allow us to better prioritize high strategic from straight to production type jobs or projects

Pros

We like the fact that all jobs are tracked and can referenced easily

Cons

The need to have everything customized. Developer rates are very expensive so we are reluctant to get too much customization work done

Outdated, hard to develop for, and buggy. Not a fan.

2018-01-09

It also allows us to track the status of each product as it moved toward completion, and integrates with Microsoft Reporting Services to make decent reports.

Pros

I also like the fact that email notifications are built into the system, and there's a fairly easy to use GUI used to create the conditions for when notifications should be sent.

Cons

By development I mean creating tables, fields, and forms, and making a useful database out of it, to keep track of certain data.

Good program with many features. Easy adoption and being adopted globally.

2017-05-10

Better project management workflow and communication.

Pros

Strong asset management tools.

Cons

Technical support has been spotty with changes in personnel at Meta Communications. We need more consistent and timely support. Contact our lead administrator about this.

Collaboration tool works well

2016-10-28

We have a few months of experience in for this tool, and thus far it is working well.

Pros

Enables collaboration across functions inside the company, and with outside vendors.

Cons

Also, I work with project numbers, and I'd like a project number to be associated with every email and piece of communication, and that doesn't happen.

The experience has been great. Customer Service is amazing!

2017-05-09

Organization for project management and software proofing

Pros

Being able to copy a link right into the proofing system has been a huge time saver. Also the ability to edit a template per job allows for a lot of customizability.

Cons

The software is a little clunky still. I would love to see a more modern look and feel for the user face. Also there are some clunks when it comes to Mac users.

Strong Customer Support

2017-01-26

Every software takes time to learn and use, what makes the experience quicker is having a good customer support at your fingertips.

Pros

The proofing capabilities are fantastic. They have consolidated traffic, kept us on schedule and minimized our emails. It's the best part of the software.

Cons

There are not column headers on the dashboard and if you click on the job number, name or button it will take you to a different task or identifier.

Able to streamline reviews and approvals and get more done in a shorter time.

2017-05-09

Deadlines and reminder emails keep us on track.

Pros

I like holding all elements of a job in once place. And keeping the different versions of the proofs stacked on top of each other. The way to mark up documents in a proof has cut down on a lot of back and fourth between team members. I know exactly where to make a change on a document, flyer, ad etc. Customer support has been awesome and super quick responding to our help tickets!

Cons

It can be frustrating that making changes to an existing template does not update all current jobs using that template. Especially when there are 20+ jobs that are affected. The app times outs / crashing if there is inactivity. I must restart the app 3-5 times a day. Not sure if this is a Mac issue.

Sold as a turn-key creative project management platform...it's not

2017-08-29

Pros

offered large file storage.

Cons

Not a turn-key platform (it's sold as that) , was not usable and refunded us nothing None of the staff stuck around so it was passed off to people who didn't know the history Very complicated infrastructure and constant errors resulting in my team losing trust in the product Project Management didn't follow thru, high internal turnover rate so no one knew what anyone was doing CEO/Sales kept thousands of dollars from a nonprofit that couldn't use the system We may not get our money back, but the most responsible thing I can do is let others know what they're getting into.

Powerful features with a lot of quirks.

2016-08-19

Software has a lot of great features but could use some work regarding how intuitive it is to use. Have had a significant amount of technical glitches and it seems that something always needs to be fixed with the system. Overall, it is better than what we had but I will continue to look for other options.

Pros

The proofing system works well for users.

Cons

Despite having the dashboard up and open on my computer, it constantly times out.

Recommendations to others considering Workgroups DaVinci

Keep looking elsewhere. We opted for this because it seemed to have everything we needed. The demo is very deceiving as you get just a very small view of what it is. Ask A LOT of questions first. The software isn't awful. It just needs a lot of work and I think input from users to make it more intuitive. I hope they fix it because it has potential.

Poor Experience

2018-01-19

None, ultimately we moved to a different platform.

Pros

Their ability to lock down individual users to specific areas of the system was handy, gave me the flexibility to keep users confined to only the areas they needed access too.

Cons

Bad UX, outdated and clunky interface masking a ton of inefficiencies.

Davinci Process Review

2018-08-05

Pros

Software is very clean and straightforward, incredibly user friendly and effective for what it's function is. By far, one of the best softwares I have seen for cross-functional use and accountability of a team.

Cons

For example, if this is set up for approvals, it is challenging to try and also create workflows for timeline management as it requires you follow similar steps across both processes.
