Cloud-Based Project Management Made Easy

4.67/5 (124 reviews)

Workzone overview

What is Workzone?

Organize projects by tasks (and subtasks), assign who’s responsible and when it’s due. Link tasks together to see how a change in one area affects the rest of the project.

Workzone automatically sends notifications when tasks are late and lets project managers quickly identify projects needing immediate attention.

Workzone is particularly valuable in these situations:

- Marketing departments / ad agencies / service firms who support multiple clients or departments: create distinct, secure workspaces for each group, setting access by user to appropriate projects and files.

- Projects that follow similar processes: create templates for projects that you do regularly (such as new product development, implementations, marketing communications), saving time and improving consistency across projects.

- Staying on top of a large number of projects: Workzone’s cross-project views and automatic alerts help you focus on the specific projects that need your immediate attention.

My team uses this for our corporate marketing efforts. We support all internal teams with collateral, graphic design, powerpoint deck creation, landing page and website updates, internal emails, external emails, social media posts, etc. We use Workzone to keep track of all of our deliverables and to show the value we are bringing to our business.

Pros
I really like the features and functionality and the customer service for this tool. You can tell that the company really cares, and they help me solve for specific project management organization and reporting issues that my team faces, and taught me some best practices for utilizing this tool to solve for our problems. Great tool if you have multiple team members and multiple projects going on at once. My favorite feature is the calendar, and how you can select which tasks you want to appear on the calendar. Great in helping our team have greater visibility to everything going on each day.

Cons
The price is steep for multiple users, we have about 20 users. They do have a tiered pricing structure, but it's still more expensive than our previous tool.

More than a project management software

Used weekly for less than 6 months

WorkZone provides features not only for a project management system but for file management and version control as well. It is a combination of a number of tools required by an organization (Especially IT). We can easily share documents with others and manage the document version control as well. In terms of managing projects, it has almost all features available.

Pros
Well, it is a mix of a number of tools. Sometimes having more features are good but it can make the application complex for the users.

Cons
I would say, to work more on improving the interface and usability. Since you have a lot of functional apps as part of your tool, it would be great for users to have a great user interface.

A welcome addition to our project management arsenal

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Software Advice

Business problems are the quest to keep the myriad projects we have established moving forward. We have had more than 500 projects, many of them Campaigns with multiple sub tasks and deliverables, and it shows management what progress has been made, and where our manpower issues are in relation to the amount of work being produced.

Pros
Notifications are the key to keeping everyone honest. You know when your work is due. It's easy to use, and logical, once you figure out how the platform works. My coworkers begrudgingly respect it, but don't always embrace it. It has kept us honest and gives a clear-eyed view of the state of projects, either from the 10 feet level or the 10,000 foot level.

Cons
No, there are some quirks that you have to understand. My boss doesn't like to check off his tasks in "Approval Requested" and then "Creative Approval", but I understand why it's like this, so I'm OK with it. There was some initial resistance to the platform by some on the tea, but training and use have made that situation better.

Benefits

Workzone is powerful enough to manage your projects effectively but simple enough that your team will actually use it.

Most project management software (like Microsoft Project) is too complicated, with hundreds of little-used features that get in the way of the handful that are really important. Entry-level tools, like Basecamp, are simple enough, but offer little more than basic to-do lists.

We designed Workzone with the power to manage real-world business situations, with a usability accessible to less technical users.
