Comments: Overall experience with WZ has been great and I don't say that lightly. WorkZone has helped transform our PMO and our enterprise. We have been with WZ since 2015. The driver behind us looking for a solution and selecting WZ was primarily driven by the lack of transparency in our organization and the WZ tool provides the visibility we need from a project, resource perspective as well as providing the organization the enterprise picture of all projects in the works, upcoming and ones to be reviewed.

Pros: We all know that moving or using different tools brings inherit challenges but with the WorkZone platform, the transition is pretty simple. The platform itself is really user friendly, there are training modules, videos, how to guides and an awesome sales/support team to help your organization through the process. Key benefit take-aways-ease of resource use, easy set-up, PMO 1 stop solution from project requests (project intake process), document management for projects, time tracking of resource tasks and portfolio reporting (must have for my company) and other key reporting reports are already built into the system. The ability to comment and tag people for input has also been extremely value add as all of those comments go into WZ and you can see the history before the project was assigned or kicked off.

Cons: There are a couple idiosyncrasies from a project management perspective. None of which are showstoppers and have easy workarounds. PM's seem to be continually challenged using FS (finish to start) for task planning. No critical path-this is actually an upcoming WZ to-do No project to project dependencies-this is actually an upcoming WZ to-do No true milestones (0days duration)-WZ is time based so every tasks needs time allocated. 1min is the workaround we use along with the milestone category.

Workzone makes project management a snap.

Comments: Project management is just one of the many facets of my job. After researching several software packages, Workzone met all of our needs for assigning and tracking marketing and design projects and well as task management for our events team. We use Workzone every day and would be lost without it.

Pros: - Ease of use is key. The training we provide for new team members takes about 1/2 hour. -The cost of Workzone (for us, a nonprofit organization) was a pro. We have all the facets of the product we need and the cost is very reasonable (especially compared to other products we tested). - Customer service deserves an "A" if not an "A+". -Because project management is just a facet of our job, WorkZone appealed to us because it had just the right amount of features, without being overwhelming.

Cons: - I wish there were more templates set up for the type of projects we use (design and copy). Now that we've used WorkZone for several years, they may have these, but we've built out own. - You can easily get carried away with email notifications, especially if you oversee many projects/ staff. (This is customizable and probably has more to do with how we choose to use WorkZone.)

Comments: We manage several hundred construction projects from bidding, to design to shipping. These projects can run for years and Workzone has helped us stay organized. We have all the information about he job at our fingertip. Reminders helps us stay on top of projects before due dates. The ease of the platform allows everyone (designers, sellers and yard operators ) the ability to stay on task by sharing and pass the baton when their part is done. This has helped us reduce errors, ensure deadlines are met and spend less time looking for information.

Pros: We have been using this software for about three years now and cannot imagine life without it. Best thing about the software is the ease of use. For a software that's so robust, it's quite intuitive. The team have been able to figure out how to navigate around with minimal training. We also like that we can store files with the tasks and can set reminders. Although we haven't had to use them a whole lot, customer service has been very responsive.

Cons: Getting reports is not idea, but this may be more what we need. Reporting functionality if fine and I can usually extract the information I need and manipulate it to get what I want.

Love it!

Comments: I have been using Workzone for 6 years now and couldn't function without it. It keeps me organized and ensures that none of my projects fall behind. Not only are there graphic indicators when a project is in danger of falling behind, but the email notifications help ensure we stay on target and no items are missed. When I have an issue, or can't figure out how to do something, customer service is incredibly helpful and very very fast at responding! Such a great program and an amazing company that supports it!

Pros: It is incredibly easy to use and takes about 2 minutes to train a new person on. Workzone is very intuitive and easy to navigate. Editing and customizing individual projects is incredibly easy. Reports are easy to create and customize and project info is searchable for those times that my memory fails me.

Cons: There is a slight delay when updating tasks or saving new comments. This could be internet speed based though, so i'm not sure if its a valid "con"

Comments: The team at WorkZone has been very involved with our experience, always making sure we are up-to-date on the latest changes, asking for feedback and making sure we are getting the most out of the software.

Pros: WorkZone has been a game-changing software for our company. We had originally planned to use Microsoft Project but ran into issues with complex training for the team. We found WorkZone and it solved all our problems -- simple, ease-to-use, very intuitive. It has streamlined our workflow, allowed for commenting regarding schedules and status and given everyone up-to-date task lists. We couldn't live without it now. It is also a great value and works for both Mac and PC, which was an issue with Project.

Cons: Nothing- WorkZone has been the best decision we've made in recent years.

Comments: Our company loves how each one of us can easily log on and instantly see job status, tracking all our activity, interacting and communicating regarding each different job. WZ saves us so much time by having everything in one place. We now can't imagine how we got by without WZ in previous years.

Pros: Work Zone enables our company to organize, track status and communicate between one and other for each and every job. Everything is right in one spot easily accessed. Job details and conversations are added, documented and stored for current active jobs and can be referred to after job completion. WZ is a real time saver and valuable tool. Our VP of Marketing runs her weekly Marketing meeting based on our WZ job listings.

Cons: None really that I can think of at the moment.

Comments: We used WorkZone for six years before growing to the point of needing a more complex system. If circumstances were different, I would happily use WorkZone again.

Pros: Great customer support -- live and recorded webinars, access to personal help, good documentation -- and solid functionality. This is a great value project management tool for companies who want more than a spreadsheet but don't want to pay for all the bells and whistles. Solid reporting and visibility for project managers and leaders. Easy to use once you understand the system logic.

Cons: A relatively high learning curve compared to its competitors. Did not have a mobile app at the time. Lacks some of the customization options of more expensive options.

Pros: I cannot stress enough how much more streamlined and efficient our workflow has become since we started using WorkZone. We were using a spreadsheet and paper requests and seemed to always be looking for job updates, proof, etc. The dashboard gives an instant update of the department and no more searching for lost papers! The support we received from CSR and the rest of the WZ crew has been nothing short of AWESOME!

Cons: As a higher education institution, the cost can be a bit daunting, but it is definitely worth it. I wish there was an enterprise license that would allow different departments to partner on the cost across the entire campus.

Pros: Our favorite thing about Workzone is the notes feature. We have a number of student designers with inconsistent schedules, so projects often have many hands touching them. The notes feature allows us to leave detailed information about each task, so that anyone can step in and pick up the ball to keep a project moving forward.

Cons: We would like it if we could see both the original/ideal schedule and the real schedule. The software does not change dates automatically to reflect when a task was actually completed and the subsequent change to dependent tasks.

Overall: It helps us manage a busy university marketing and communications office.

WorkZone has literally changed the way we work and coordinate in our agency.

Pros: WZ has a ton of features and helps us keep track of everything going on. I can look at the workload for each person on my team to know the status of their projects and where new work should be assigned.

Cons: The learning curve is steep, but that's probably true with most PM software. Sounds weird, but there can sometimes be too much granularity so that particular information can get buried in a random spot. Would love a better in-app notification system.

Overall: We are much more organized and able to meet project deadlines. Everyone can go to a central place to see where we're at on every aspect of the work.

Pros: Workzone is a simple, relatively easy to use project management platform that doesn't require a whole lot of studying before you can use it. It allows you to create customized project milestones and timelines and to add human resources that can be assigned at various levels.

Once set up, Workzone allows you to view multiple project statuses, see if tasks are on track or falling behind, and even receive progress reports via email at intervals.

One of the best features of Workzone is the ability to create project templates. This feature comes in handy for teams which handle multiple projects of the same type over and over again. Instead of having to create the task set from the beginning each time, the templates can be used to jump right into an already established flow saving both time and effort.

Cons: Getting Workzone setup was a very manual process but it was worth it in the end. It would have been nice to have a comprehensive set of project templates to get started with from various industries which could then be customized to save even more time.

Overall: Having moved from trying to track multiple projects with multiple teams using just spreadsheets, Workzone brought some much-needed organization and clarity to our processes.

Comments: WorkZone has allowed us to access projects while on the road, track down communication timelines when projects fall into "proof limbo," and gain insight into our department's capacity.

Pros: It's strange to love software because of the customer service, but WorkZone's responsive, witty team made deploying this robust program with 30+ reluctant creatives successful. I love being able to tell at a glance which projects are on track (or not), taking more (or less) time than anticipated, and who should have time to work on urgent requests.

Cons: At first I hated that there were multiple ways of doing nearly everything in the system.

Pros: I love the ease of use and the collaborative features that keep the team updated.

Pros: Workzone has been such a key element in our organization with managing so many miniature "digital factors" that are so prevalent these days. Whether you like it or not you need to get this type of software to hold and "glue" your organization together and push forward strong!

Cons: Initially it took our team a bit of time to adjust to managing all of our various moving parts under one roof of this software. However, once we passed this initial time period we really were able to accelerate our projects!

Comments: We are using WorkZone as a workflow system only. We don't use the time tracking and use only a couple of the reports, so for how we're using it. . . .

Pros

Very easy to use and set-up, although the time to set-up any system like this should not be underestimated.

Auto-notification sent to the person responsible for the next task once one is done.

Support is excellent -- responds quickly and is very knowledgeable.

Can easily drag-and-drop literature for review.

Easy to make comments and document job specs / direction.

Later dates auto adjust when additional time is added to a task.

Cons

Tasks "fall-off" to-do lists once they're 30 days old. I spend a time adding days to tasks so that they will remain visible in people's to-do lists.

Initial training was less than optimal, but I heard that person is no longer at WorkZone.

Reporting is not customizable. (However, we do very little of that now.)

To-do list lists every task. Would be nice if it showed only your next task in a specific project -- one task per project at a time.

Would like to CANCEL items, so they can be permanently cancelled, but not deleted or inactive.

Time tracking was cumbersome. We no longer use it, but not for that reason.

No time stamp for when someone checked off their task.

Comments: We had a custom built PMS for a long time, so finding something that would work for the way we work was a little bit of a challenge. Once I found WZ I knew it would take just a bit of training my team, but it would make everything better. I found out that the multi-tasked level with different deadlines was a bit too much for us. We are a communications and marketing team in a university setting and our projects are usually here one second and gone the next. So being able to use the product in different ways has helped us out. I stripped it down to were we add a project, add everyone to that project, add one task that would be the "first proof" deadline (set it for one day in order to easily extend it), and set the project end date as the "delivered" date or "in hand" date. This is much closer to the way our custom built system worked and it has been working wonderfully for us. I truly believe that WZ could work for the smallest of project management to the largest project management. And one other thing, I love it b/c I can make it work as more of a project-based system and not as heavy of a task-based system (even though it's not intended for that). ;)

Comments: Was a plus to find an inexpensive work flow piece of software that didn't take much training. The Workzone help desk is readily available for a conference call concerning any questions we may have as well.

Pros: Nice to be able to enter a project work flow line by line and if it is a repeating project, I can save the template and simply copy and rename it the next month or Quarter as needed.

Cons: For what I need this for, I didn't see a downside to the functionality.

Comments: We have been on Workzone for several years, and my team really enjoys interacting with it. There is ability to look at the projects globally as well as in detail. Steps can be built in for different teams, and the reporting ability is wonderful. We have implemented several successful projects lately, using Workzone.

Pros: Easy to use, reporting, and the support is great.

Cons: There should be a way to help you build your project and timelines. Like a project template that asks you the necessary questions: how many teams? what is the deadline? Do any tasks depend on other tasks? What needs to be shared? etc.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take the time to map out your projects!

Comments: Great Product!

Pros: From initial inquiry into their services to carryout of implementation, Workzone has met my teams needs completely.The product is extremely easy to use and and allows for a diverse range of functionality. Being able to store our data within Workzone was an added bonus and their security is second to none. The rep from the company was eager to answer any questions we had in the initial talks and very thorough in helping us get the request pushed through to start implementing workzone.

Comments: Pro - intuitive to use; workflow consulting with Alex - homerun; project request and the ability to add what we need - great; document manager huge potential

Con - reporting kludge; no API culls limits scale; markup tool only works for small page counts

This tool is accepted internally. However, clients are not willing to interact with it.

WorkZone doesn't share your feature enhancements ahead of time, so it is a negative event. Meaning, your releases cause more problems because we have to quickly figure out a plan on what to do with live work. Would be better if you hosted a webinar a week before your release so we could plan and not be reactive. Our usual approach is to ignore the feature rather than to figure out how to use it. Not the best approach - just being honest.

Markup tool would be better if it tapped into the Acrobat comment/markup tools and have the ability to save and move the file along the workflow path.

Comments: I found it motivating, informative and very reliable.

Pros: It kept me informed about deadlines. I could see new assignments coming up, assignments that were current and those that might be overdue.

Cons: There was nothing to dislike about the software because every aspect of it was user controlled. I could decide not to get the daily reminders, I could inform if the deadline became a problem, I could inform if the hours for the job were less or more than expected and write notes.

Pros: Workzone is very easy to use and the supporting staff is easily accessible I also like the clean interface which allows to quickly get around

Cons: Today having an app is important because many times work is done on the go. Workzone does not have an app Also lacking the ability to add customized fieds reduces the reach in covering specific data collection.

Comments: I really enjoy using WorkZone and wouldn't use any other product! The device and customer service definitely get a 5 out of 5 because of it's functionality and Alex Dingley. He is always available for the crazy questions I have and will talk me through each issue on the phone till I understand it. It's been a very helpful extension of WZ!

My only complaint (very minor) is on some features such as being able to take a project from a previous year, enter a new date for the following year and have the whole project re-sync to the current time so you don't have to manually change each date. I know you guys are always working on improvements though so I'm sure it's just a matter of time!

Thanks!

Comments: Pros- keeps my team accountable, disciplined and organized; user friendly, simple to understand. Overall I love this product and have implemented it in two organizations to be our lead project management system for the marketing team

Cons- Should allow for more associate seats as my team uses it for agency model but other teams use it as their dept work production w/in the teams; Should be able to adjust what a user can access individually, not by "Role"; document markup tool not the most user friendly. Project Request tool should allow owner/admin to add additional fields for data collection upon Project Request to eliminate back and forth; Would love to see a mobile version - app.

Comments: Pros: Easy to navigate, populate, and report out. User-friendly.

Cons: None

Overall it's been a great experience utilizing WorkZone as our project management tracking tool over the past 18 months. I highly recommend it to any organization with an abundance of projects going through the pipeline, many simultaneously. We were able to more effectively manage 230+ marketing projects in 2014 and we're well on our way to that many or more in 2015. I wouldn't want to do it without WorkZone. It made our old software, which was clunky and not so user-friendly, seem like a dinosaur. Get organized with this software. You'll be happy you did.

I love it! It's eliminated spreadsheets, it's provided necessary reports, etc.

Comments: Pros: Eliminates the need for manual project tracking and status reports (spreadsheets), eliminates manual project number generation, allows for MS Project schedules to be imported, allows for easy-to-use project templates to be saved

Cons: Those who don't understand the need for all of the features don't like it and complain about it. Those who are not project managers or don't like doing project management of any kind don't like it.

There are so many features that WorkZone provides that we're finally getting around to utilizing more of them. WorkZone has allowed for us to make many positive changes in our project processes.

User-Friendly Project Management

Comments: WorkZone is an excellent solution for larger organizations (especially ad agencies and marketing departments) that need help staying on top of multiple ongoing projects. The platform's template tools make it easy to replicate similar project processes, while daily email digests ensure every team member knows exactly what he or she needs to do to move the project along. Managers can save time when they use WorkZone to keep their departments on track, and they can decrease the penalty costs typically associated with delays or missed deadlines.

Pros: Excellent system for large organizations and marketing teams

Cons: May be too robust for smaller firms

Comments: WorkZone helps managing project timeline to be broken out into small tasks. Based upon tasks, it's easier to manage the project timeline. The project team is accountable to manage the tasks and they mark the tasks as completed once it is done.

Recommendations to other buyers: The timeline can be managed and the tasks can be assigned easily.
