Allow people to manage work from anywhere with our tablet and mobile apps.

• Project Management - Creating and executing cross-departmental initiatives in Workfront is easy and intuitive. By automating workflows and standardizing processes, work managers can plan new work in minutes. Our suite of visualization tools lets each person customize the way they want to work- Agile, waterfall, or a mix. Our interactive Gantt chart, robust real-time reporting, and custom project dashboards give managers complete visibility into status, roadblocks, risks, and issues throughout the entire project.

• Portfolio and Program Management- Drive business initiatives forward by grouping projects into programs and portfolios. Create business cases to evaluate new work and automatically align all projects to the portfolio's objectives. Instantly see which projects your portfolio should work on, and track the progress and financials back to the portfolio's objectives.

• Task Management - Team members know the work they need to do and they have all of the information they need to complete their tasks. Collaboration, documents, details, and timelines are in one view so everyone can get their work done faster than ever.

• Issue Tracking - Every project has it's hiccups. Workfront tracks these detours with issues so you can compare your plan to the actual work. Each issue is attached to a project so all work remains in one place.

• Demand Management- Create custom request and intake forms so your teams get all the information they need to complete their work. Automatically route incoming requests to the right team so work can get started quickly. Set up scorecards to evaluate incoming work based on custom criteria. Requestors receive automatic updates on their work eliminating random status check emails.

• Resource Management - Use your most precious resource- your people- to their fullest capacity without burning them out. Use Artificial Intelligence to assign new work to the right people and level the workloads across the team. See the true capacity of your team and make sure you have enough people to complete the department's current and future work.

• Team Collaboration - Workfront orchestrates collaboration across teams, departments, and geolocations. With updates steaming in like a social media feed, people are notified of relevant actions and conversations happen in the context of projects and deliverables. With integrations to common productivity tools- email and chat, Workfront centralizes the conversations to everyone stays in the loop.

• Review and Approval- Work isn't finished until the ink dries on the final approval stamp. Workfront automates all approval processes getting feedback from the right people, in the right order. Gone are the days of missed versions, incorrect feedback, or paper signatures. Workfront makes sure people are reviewing the right version, and allows people to compare versions side-by-side for faster approvals.

• Reports & Dashboards - With more than 50 standard reports and unlimited configurable reports, Workfront provides executives, managers, and project teams with the information they require to make informed decisions. Learn where projects are steering off course, keep profitability in mind on client work, and track where your department is focused so leaders can make more strategic work decisions.

• Digital Content Hub - When content and workflows are disconnected people lose valuable time searching for information or operating with outdated information. Use Workfront Library to manage your work in progress content and share final deliverables with the right people.

• Product Integration - Workfront integrates seamlessly with all business-critical applications to automate workflows and surface insights about the true cost of work. With Workfront Fusion, you can connect Workfront to 150+ business applications. Our native integrations with Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, Jira, Slack, and Adobe allow people to work in familiar tools without requiring duplicate work. Our RESTapi lets you integrate with any solution to meet the needs of your business.

• Auditing & Governance - Providing a single place for all project information within Workfront give you an audit trail to authenticate compliance with corporate standards. Integrating cross-departmental collaboration, visibility and compliance eliminates the need for disparate, department-specific software, email, or other patchwork approaches.

Sharing of projects is now easy and every member of the team has up to date data on project progress. Moreover, executives look for loopholes to help in easily and monitor progress.

Pros

It has given us ability to plan, manage, and measure work based on data which helps organization executives to monitor work in real-time using the data. The most important thing is that their support team worked with us from the beginning to create a platform that best fits our job environment. Now we can easily work in teams as we are able to plan, create and share tasks and projects within the platform and most importantly Workfront was integrated with the softwares that we use on a daily basis. Another benefit is that they offer a free trial for an organization.

Cons

The vendor support team took a little bit longer in creating the Workfront platform that could best match our needs but in all it was a success and now we are good.

I've used Workfront with three different companies over the last five years. I've been able to use Workfront to help cut campaign request, approval and building in half, to solve the "everything through email" issue and to manage an extremely high volume of request from internal, external and disparate teams in a large organization that is change resistant. It's been meldable, helpful and honestly fun to learn and grow with Workfront as a company and as a system.

Pros

I love that Workfront is easy to configure and change as your organization grows. It's easy to stay up to speed with and make changes based on system changes and your organization changing. I also am in love with the reporting and custom data features. Custom forms and the ability to manipulate them to get data has been invaluable in every organization I've been in to date that has used Workfront.

Cons

I don't really have a ton of complaints if the system is configured well. Maybe that there are too many features? It can be a lot to wrap your head around but if you have the time to get to know it it is irreplaceable.

Workfront has helped us to always keep up with our tasks, be aware of what has been done and what remains to be done. It has been a key factor in optimizing our workflow. Using this tool has solved many problems at the level of task management, project management and time management. All our work teams enjoy using this tool and are always aware of everything that needs to be done on a daily basis to keep productivity high. It is a robust, versatile and efficient tool for managing projects of all kinds. The functions available in this tool improve workflows and the reports it generates are excellent. I certainly recommend it.

Pros

Workfront is strongly used by the project development department of our organization, it is an excellent tool to keep an organized management of the projects, keep the data about the projects updated and its reports are quite readable and well structured. The Workfront interface is quite intuitive, it is multi-platform and its ability to set parameters on tasks and projects and reflect every change in real time is simply fantastic for keeping work teams up to date. On top of that, it has an excellent customer service team.

Cons

Being such a robust tool in terms of functionality there is a certain learning curve, which can make it more difficult and take a little longer for new users to adapt to handling the software.

Long time administrator of AtTask/Workfront

Reviewed on 2015/09/01

Pros

Workfront has allowed our department to fine-tune our projects, which consist of approx. 45-50 projects per year over three selling seasons, all working concurrently. We have been able to integrate our Product Development dept in NYC and our distribution facility in South Carolina, in order to Go to Market in a seamless manner. There is visibility for anyone who needs it and a range of reporting functions.

Cons

It can be frustrating to set everything up in a particular manner, only to have it become a 'legacy'. The challenge I've faced as the admin for my company is that it's not my full time job and it can be time-consuming to figure things out at times, or try to configure a work-around to meet our needs. The reporting has improved a lot since we started with the product 7 years ago, but there are still some basic needs that aren't met, such as the fact that there's a beautiful Milestone report, but it's not printable. It is the exact type of report that is most useful for our organization, but it's impossible to print out for our dept meeting, for instance.

Overall, I think Workfront has helped our team manage multiple projects in an effective way. With this tool, we have been able to launch campaigns and assignments efficiently and it has helped us stay on track with getting tasks completed in a timely manner.

Pros

Workfront has helped our team organize projects in a functional way. It allows you to group similar tasks and assign subtasks to members of your team with due dates, hours for completion, etc. Workfront also includes a built in calendar that integrates with your tasks, so if you're off on PTO or a holiday, task due dates automatically update to work around your schedule.

Cons

Workfront can be counter intuitive sometimes when it comes to time management. There are a few functionality issues that I think could be updated to better serve its users. One example of this is having to click a button to say you're working on the project, rather than just clicking once to say you've completed the project. The interface design could also be updated to be a little more user-friendly and visually appealing.
