Coordinate efforts between teams using multiple work methodologies- Agile, Waterfall, mix- without disrupting collaboration or workflows. Allow people to manage work from anywhere with our tablet and mobile apps.

• Project Management - Creating and executing cross-departmental initiatives in Adobe 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.

• Issue Tracking - Every project has it's hiccups. Adobe 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.

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.

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. Adobe 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. Adobe Workfront makes sure people are reviewing the right version, and allows people to compare versions side-by-side for faster approvals.

Very satisfactory. Can’t imagine another product meeting the needs of our org with so many workflows and such complex data needs. Incredible customer service and training resources. Incredibly helpful annual conference for users and potential buyers.

Pros

Workfront is a fantastic, adaptable project and resource management system. If you have diverse needs across your org or company, it is the product for you. It can be fully adapted to very disparate teams. I find new features and functionality every day.

Cons

Because it’s so able-to-be-tailored, a high-quality implementation can take a looong time, but their implementation services are fantastic

Kantata and Wrike

Reasons for Switching to Adobe Workfront

Instead of Mavenlink- Very flexible on license structuring and pricing, more integrations Instead of Wrike- we needed something more complex, but Wrike is great if you don’t

I use Workfront on a daily basis, for the better part of each day. When I submit proofs to clients, they have the option to read the proof, make any comments or suggestions they have, or decide whether or not the proof should be authorized. The tools that are located at the top of the page may be used by the customer with ease to highlight or point to what they want altered.

Pros

I enjoy that the dashboard makes it simple to view the tasks on which I have been tasked to work as well as the due dates for those projects. I am able to view the approvals that are waiting, as well as my to-do list, which helps me keep my job on track.

Cons

The calendar function on their website is not to my liking. It does not function very well, and it makes it tough to view your projects within a monthly timeline, which is something that is incredibly crucial for a content team to achieve.

Long time administrator of AtTask/Workfront

Reviewed on 1/9/2015

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.
