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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Carefully identify your users, groups, job roles, etc. prior to launch. A well-planned execution will make things much simpler as you move forward.

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.
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.
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.
