About 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.

Top 5 alternatives to Workzone

Key benefits of Workzone

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.

Overall this is a good and simple project management software to have which can help to get your work done, though it lacks a lot of the fancy features that some fo the competitors provide.

Pros

One of the simple and easiest project management tools to implement as this is web based.
Quite intuitive , less cluttered and easy to use. Possess all the good features of MS Excel and MS Project, which have been nicely integrated into a nice simple layout.
Allows to share documents and message across the team, good for collaboration.
Sends email notifications for tasks and sub tasks which is an amazing feature to have.

Cons

No apps support on Google play or Apple Store, but can open in most of the browsers and hence serves its purpose.

Mentioned it above, but their support is really great. You get to know the folks who work there and even though we're not a huge client, we feel totally supported. That really helps with communicating ideas, asking for advice, and making it a useful tool for your company. You're meeting with folks who know their software and not some third-party service reading through a decision chart.

Pros

I've toured a number of project management systems and it's surprising how many can't deliver what needs to get done. WorkZone does a great job at being a functional project management system. Our company needs a blend of project mgmt that is effective, yet not so robust its unwieldy, and WZ really fits the bill. It doesn't have some of the flashy features others might, but often those systems are super pricey, or don't work as advertised. WZ has plenty of features we don't utilize, so I don't mean to make it sound basic. But it works great for our team and does what it needs to, and well. Oh, also, they've been super supportive, great customer service, are continually adding new features, and open to feedback.

Cons

I guess the biggest con is that there isn't an app (like for an iPad), but that's definitely not a deal-breaker. We tested other systems that offered apps and maybe looked prettier, but weren't functional when we kicked the tires. Another con might be that, at the start, it isn't super intuitive (like most new things), but it didn't take long to get your bearings. Again, once we were up and running, it's been really smooth and useful.

Alternatives Considered

Asana and Hive

Reasons for Choosing Workzone

Not to knock TeamGantt; it was also a good tool, but wasn't implemented in a way that was useful to a growing team. WorkZone had some functionality that TG didn't, but overall we made the switch as a newly reformed team, deciding on a tool together.

Switched From

TeamGantt

Reasons for Switching to Workzone

We also dipped our toes in Asana, but the email login really killed it. We're a smaller unit in a larger company, and Asana was really only interested in nabbing the entire entity. Even getting a functional trial was difficult since someone must have sampled it who-knows-when. Asana also wasn't very supportive or interested in working with a team our size. When we realized we'd need a second email account for all users, that was the dealbreaker. We also looked at Hive, which wasn't a good fit for our team, and some other system that was way too expensive.

The service I've received from the Workzone team has been incredible. I became the administrator of the software during Covid when a large portion of my team was laid off, including our design services specialist. I was experienced with the software as a user but didn't know how to set up workgroups, users, and reporting. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] our account rep., was quick to respond and made sure I got the help I needed to keep things moving. Nearly two years later I'm still serving as admin, and [SENSITIVE CONTENT] and his team have been most helpful and patient with my ongoing questions. The Workzone team has been a definite extension of our marketing and design team that has helped us maintain productivity with very limited human resources during these unprecedented times.

Pros

Our team has found Workzone to be an integral part of our project and resource management practices. The software is intuitive, easy to use, and user-friendly. It has allowed us to create efficiencies in managing our limited human resources for graphic design projects.

Cons

There really isn't anything I don't like about the software. It's so comprehensive, I know I haven't built an understanding of how to fully utilize the software.

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.

Overall, we really like the simplicity of Workzone as a project management system. It works for our environment and workflow. We've used Workzone for over 10 years. I have quarterly meetings with a WZ rep and find this to be very valuable. Workzone has always been open to suggestions on recommendations for enhancements or additional to improve the system.

Pros

Ease of use, a simple way to manage and track projects

Cons

Some of the recent upgrades has caused confusion for reviews regarding when they are in the document manager section in regards to adding new versions of files that are routing for review vs adding files to the project folder. Unfortunately, this has caused some pain-points for us.
