What do you like best?

Workflow management has strong features such as: business process automation, a graphical editor, customizable control panels, third party integrations, etc., that provide optimization to user projects. It allows to manage in an optimal way the workload of the workers, with the purpose of delivering a professional work in the assigned time. The campaigns have all the necessary information of each project and client. Workzone is also enabled for use on a Mac. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The program has functions that are not intuitive enough and this leads to more manual adjustments for example functions such as calendars, causing a considerable delay in the progress of tasks. At the moment it does not contain a mobile application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

To be a perfect project management software it has to offer the Kanban board. A customer portal could further enhance the Workzone platform. A mobile application for Smartphones would provide better convenience for all users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One advantage of using Workzone is that it contains a very tidy dashboard that allows you to see all the necessary information about the employees and the tasks being performed. It becomes very easy to accommodate the employee's workload and to be able to redirect that task to another employee with less work. Real-time messages that can be sent to employees after isolating tasks in the To Do List have accelerated the finalization of projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Workzone contains all the necessary tools to carry out campaigns with your team. Allows users to save time because you can use jobs and campaigns created in past projects, to use them again for future jobs. It contains an intelligent model where the tasks and sub-tasks to create are located. Web and cloud-based implementations are more stable than other project management software. It has very good intuition to track and record each project Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It can take time to master all the tasks that Workzone offers, although the fact that the whole program is intelligently organized reduces learning time. Workzone does not have the option of looking at the accumulated hours of a project still in progress. It contains a limited number of templates, which makes it difficult to complete certain types of projects Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

New agencies and organizations may not be able to afford the Workzone service, so I recommend that they create a cheaper version, with less ammounts of tasks but keeping the same methodology. Online training can be more dynamic, there are features that are more advanced that cannot be taught easily and quickly Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are working in more orderly ways because all the information about our users' work is in the workload. Project portfolio management is used for resource management and time tracking, along with a very fast communications panel. Workflow has been improved because we use tasks like the graphic editor and business process automation. The customer support is very well prepared and they are very polite Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Workzone is a well known cloud-based project management solution whose approach is based on document management and collaboration, in terms of its strengths as a software we can say that it has different tools that allow the user to create projects, assign tasks and share files within a cloud-based platform, this helps improve the workflow of request and approval another point that I consider really positive in this software is how it organizes each project so that you can see who is responsible for each project, due date of each project and also makes the outstanding projects that are overdue are very noticeable Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Workzone is an extremely brilliant software however when you go deeper in its functions you can notice that it still has some deficiencies that I hope will improve in the future like for example its interface which is not very fluid and its design is not very eye-catching but nevertheless it fulfills its function, those projects that are delayed by a task are affected as a whole and the independent tasks that were done on time are still affected, Workzone also has a deficiency in advanced accounting or budgeting functions and finally the local implementation is not available Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The strengths of this software are project management and collaboration tools so I think it is perfect for those companies that develop content, ideas and have to share them with several people or customers. It is the perfect application to build a project in an organized way from its beginning to its end, always accompanying each step of the project and providing tools for teamwork. Finally, it has a modest price so it can be ideal for both large and small companies Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My organization receives a large number of projects from our customers and every day we find ourselves having to manage each one of them, that's why we chose Workzone as a tool for the management of personalized projects, it has also helped us to know how to proceed with each project, with it we have assigned tasks to each of our employees and delivered due dates for each one of them, the truth is that with Workzone the workflow within my organization has improved a lot which represents a greater satisfaction on the part of our customers Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

How rapid it is to set up projects and areas for new clients - it feels like you can genuinely "spin up" a new area of your Workzone instance rather than having to set aside significant amounts of time - flexible and efficient. Most of all, I really like that it works on mobile and desktop - I've tracked time when I've been at my desk, and I've reviewed Workzone comments and time tracking when I'm on the move - that's invaluable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have had the occasional loading bug, and I'd like to be able to "pin" tasks to time tracking pages. Most of all I do experience some issues when it comes to navigation - sometimes clicking on a task takes me to the time tracking page for it rather than the task's location in the project tree - sometimes the reverse, and it is not always clear which one I am going to get. Perhaps there could be a button or a clear method for navigating to whichever one of the two you actually need. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's really worth taking the time to really understand the tool. Set up team roles appropriately - empowering multiple users to create projects and edit aspects of them can avoid bottlenecks in the process. Use name tagging in comments and watch it improve the speed of response. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time tracking is simple and efficient - I'm often in and out in seconds after a task, or quickly tagging someone in a task comments section to generate alert emails and get their attention. I feel like the time I'm spending in Workzone is never wasted. I also feel it's really easy to sit down with someone and map out a new project, including dependent tasks, hour estimates, and so on, without having to worry that it will be a pain for someone to implement - we can brainstorm how things will go, map it out, then simply drop it into the system Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The vast amount of information available is a benefit for those who need it. Account managers will absolutely benefit from having a thousand-foot view of all projects at any given time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While Workzone offers a robust view of all tasks occurring across the company, it's difficult for individual users to set up a view that works for them based on the limited scope they need. For example, if a designer simply has a weekly task that they need to access for a client, it can feel frustrating to have to dig into the entire client's page and filter down to the project they need to locate. If you need to access past projects that have been marked at complete, it can be nearly impossible to locate them because of the sheer volume of projects at your fingertips. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Find a customized view that works for you. If you're able to trim down your view to just the projects that affect you, you'll have a much easier time navigating Workzone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's easy to keep tabs on when projects are due and who is responsible for them. This is a big boon for accountability. If a project is overdue, it's simple to find the person who may need help completing their portion of the task. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easily upload files, reassign tasks, view current workflow and tag other users. The function to markup items and approve/not approve work can be a bit clunky at times, depending how the team uses it, but it's better than not having the option. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult to reassign tasks to new users who are not currently assigned to the project. This involves a bit of backtracking to add them to the workspace and then continue with the project set up. If you're not currently in a project but receive a link to a task, you may receive an error message. I wish this function would instead give the reason and the option to request access. I find the mobile version difficult to use, but I turn to mobile so infrequently, it's really a non-issue for my work purposes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don’t skip on boarding! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We’ve tried several time tracking and project management tools, this is the most efficient as the organization grows. With both one-off projects and recurring monthly work, I know the ability to duplicate projects has saved our account management team time month to month...and has reduced the amount of recurring tasks that are lost in the shuffle.

I like that it sends you emails every morning with the tasks that are due! This is seriously so helpful in keeping me on track with my work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don’t like that it’s so hard to filter down and just look at the projects I’ve created. The FULL projects, not just the tasks with my name on them. For example, if I filter by my name, but want to add A new task for myself, I can click add new task, but then it immediately goes invisible because it is not yet assigned to me. Then I have to go up and re-filter by the name of the project, find the new task, assign it to myself, then go back to filtering by me to see it within the grand scheme of all my projects. Wish there was an easier way to do this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am not currently solving any problems with WorkZone, just continuing to work despite them. However, the benefits I realized are that I am much better at time management, I forget tasks far less often, and I overall feel much more organized. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Workzone is a great project management software for collaboration among teams. It is robust and easy to use. It works well for decentralized teams as it is cloud-hosted.

Our association completes a great deal of undertakings that have simultaneous assignments, are self-made and in this way have no required due dates, or are battles with a few unmistakable tasks.

What do you like best?

One redeeming point is no downtime in a year. The service was always running. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Extremely fiddly to use. The setup is counter-intuitive, and eve after using it in a team for more than a year the befenefit never showed itself. The team manager who purchased Workzone tried to set up workflows as well as he could, and was in constant touch with the US support team to make it happen. The UI looks like it belongs in 2006, and nothing works the way you think it does. To do even the simples of operations is a hassle, requiring a ton of clicks, and checkboxes.

The only reason we started using Workzone over any other tool, was a promise that we could set up a finish date, and automatically have a plan drawn up until the due date. This never worked correct. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

They lock-in with very long contracts (one year) to give what seems to be large discounts. They're not that large when you try to get out of the contract... Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Team management of several different services delivered, and general cat herding. We tried to make this a system to better see team resources and capacity, but the benefit never materialized. After trying out Monday.com for just a couple of hours, we managed without support to have a better system in place than Workzone ever did. Even with a lot of support.

Very minimal reporting available, not able to see Gantt-like report across project boards. I have cross-functional teams allocated to different projects and not able to see where their time has been allocated simulateously. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Great for providing visibility to upper management, but no ability to drill down into dashboards to see related specifics. Everyone in the company has the ability to communicate to the executive team the status and complexity of the work that is being mapped out. Departments are able to import a spreadsheet template of tasks and elements, but at our company we spend more time setting everything up in the spreadsheet, and just check stuff off in the platform.

I love the ability to see everything you have going on, no matter the department, and the ability to filter by task and project. I think this is largely dependent on how well your Workzone instance is set up and maintained by your department or company, but when it is done right, productivity and/or accountability can skyrocket. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike templates in general. They're only editable (and viewable) by the administrator. And when you set a template, it's pretty rigid and difficult to change on the fly -- sometimes you have to make major changes because of a specific project, and Workzone doesn't make that too easy. Plus the way some tasks are dependent and cascade, one missed deadline could make EVERYONE else's tasks late. Again, this may be something that can be remediated by a good administrator, but it's a risk nonetheless. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you have an A-type running the show. Someone who is extremely organized can boost your value out of this platform, and especially someone who is able to hold others accountable for the work they're assigned. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our team works with 10+ teams in our department, and most are in sync with this software. Questions about projects can generally be answered in the software itself, and project requests are simple if the right work flows are in place. We are making teams work better together just about every day, and keeping people accountable for their tasks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I've made many to others that have been looking into it. My MAIN thing is that it is a project-based product instead of a task-based product. I also needed to have a system that could automatically number the projects as they were created. That way we could set up our archive folder structure similarly to that. Also being able to easily see how many projects are on a certain users plate. That way I can adjust the workload as more jobs come in by easily seeing who has the time for it. Also, the reporting was extremely beneficial to me. To be able to see how many projects were done in a certain amount of time, what the average turnaround time on those. etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like being able to have a variety of templates so each project type can be created easily. And, I like being able to add/remove steps in the process and extend a workflow as the scope of the project changes or revisions are needed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the contingencies make getting the ideal date to line up tricky within a complex workflow. And, I would like for closed projects to 'reopen' automatically if new tasks are added. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Setting up templates is a key first step to successful implementation of the software. Communicated what information should be communicated in the various areas within a workflow is also important to consistent and effective communication within the team. There are a lot of ways to use the tool, so figuring out how your team finds/uses information is important. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We no longer need to manually and physically move projects through our ad agency. The workflows indicate whose turn it is in the process and even assigning tasks to multiple people is possible for multiple reviewers. It has saved a ton of steps, allowed people to work remotely where before it was next to impossible and provided insight into where issues and delays occur. Deadlines that are missed are flagged so we don't continue to get further behind schedule. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
