Value for Money

Workamajig is a pretty robust system which houses all of your Project Management and financial data in one place. It's a little like one of those old boom boxes which does a little bit of everything rather than one thing really well. It is tremendous value for your buck and can be customized to meet any needs you have.

Pros

The new HTML version is finally catching up to the current market leaders.

Cons

Slow development cycles.
Still primarily in Flash

Advice to Others

If you have the need to integrate with a CRM, go elsewhere. The WMJ CRM is nothing to write home about.

Pros

This product is up and coming. It has a lot of great features but not everything but their developers are currently developing more and more each day. If you are a customer you can put in requests for how you want things to work and they submit them as tickets to their developers to consider.

The software has a lot of features already that you can use and are adding more each release (about once a month).

The customer service is great and the software is very very reasonably priced.

Cons

The current system requires manual work on our part in some cases to accomplish things that used to be automated in the system we used to use. The manual work is time consuming for us.

Since the developers are currently working on the product the system does have some bugs and we discover them occasionally and have to work around them until Workamajig can fix them.

The software is very user friendly and if something is not working quite right for you, the support team is great to work with and they help you figure out a work around. Sometimes they even take your suggestions to make an upgrade so it will work the way you want it to.

Cons

It's flash based so it will not work on iPad, but they're introducing Platinum to fix this issue. The transition to Platinum will be a challenge, but well worth it in the end.

I was able to work with other team members to easily and effectively track approvals, and in general manage jobs, as they were being worked on.

Pros

It's easy to learn and use. I've used other project management software in the past that was convoluted and extremely frustrating. With Workamajig, I was able to find jobs quickly and as well as easily use other helpful functions. I work in a different department now where I don'y use any project management software. My comments are based on 9 months of previous experience. When I had issues with the software, an on-site administrator helped me.

Cons

I haven't used the product in several months. I don't remember the issues that caused problems. Although there were issues, overall I was pleased with how it worked.

I am one of those individuals that know this software package can do more than I even know about, but get too involved in other projects to really understand and use everything it has to offer. It is fairly intuitive, but when I have problems a quick email to Marlene and she helps me resolve the problem very quickly.

Pros

In most cases it is very simple to figure out, so I would consider it very user friendly.

Cons

I cannot delete employees or contacts once they have left the company; that I can only inactivate them.

I was hesitant at first as it looked like a lot to take in and start using when our company implemented it. But with some excellent training we were using it and it was a lot easier to use than I first thought. I really see the benefits of it and glad our company decided to use it. Would definitely recommend it.

Pros

Ease of use once you get used to it.

Cons

The deliverables not having review options, but that is being fixed

Advice to Others

I think it is great and can't think of any at the moment but enjoy using it more than I thought I would and glad our company implemented it.

Most of the functions in Workamajig are fairly intuitive. Some of the updates improve one thing and reduce the functionality of another. This is my first experience with an internet-based platform system. Sometimes I have to repeat actions several times to get it to work. Is this due to an internet platform? Overall Workamajig is a good product.
Customer Service can be very helpful sometimes, and very dismissive at other times.

Pros

Seems fairly flexible and doesn't put up a lot of barriers to getting my daily work done. It's fairly intuitive and simple on common actions unlike some systems (Oracle... yuck).

Cons

Sometimes not responsive to action/inquiry requests. Will have to request multiple times to get the action/request/inquiry handled. I don't know if that is because of it being an internet-based platform or not.

I enjoy using Workamajig. I like that it's an all in one system. I like that the traffic, project management, AR, AP, time tracking and so one are all in one system and all work together. I also like how easy things can be adjusted. I like to tell new users, don't worry about making a mistake, there isn't anything you can do that we can't fix. Other systems that I have used are not that user friendly.

Pros

Easy to learn
Easy to make changes/corrections

Advice to Others

I think it would be great to have continuing education webinars/training sessions that users could take to learn things that maybe we don't know it does.

I've utilized many project management systems throughout my career and I really enjoy Workamajig. Although there is a bit of a learning curve, the internal training really helped. I find that it is now quite a bit easier to use than some of the other project management systems I have worked on in the past. The timesheet entry, job opening, meeting/calendar and budget/estimate tools are what I use the most as a Sr. Account Executive. I find the project/workflow scheduling a bit hard and clunky to use, so I tend to just make schedules on my own. The unpredictability of project timeline changes also makes workflow/schedule a daunting task.

With that said, I overall really enjoy using workamajig and feel its very functional and easy to use.

Pros

The estimate and job oepning system

Cons

The workflow/project schedule tool

I have used Workamajig to help run and grow our agency for approximately ten years. I have to tell you that I love the product and credit it with helping us to grow and thrive. As an agency owner, it has really helped us. That said, I really feel like their technology needs an upgrade. The interface is built in Flash/Flex and it is very cumbersome and not mobile friendly. They have changes in the works, but that has been way too long in arriving. They also need a really good mobile app to help us manage and grow. I expect these upgrades to arrive. The people are really responsive and I would highly recommend the product.

My experience with this software has been great. It is a true work horse. I have used it several different times during my career to manage and run Creative Studios. This software has enabled my project management staff to successfully support up to 350-500 active projects. Keep in mind that the software is only as good as the information that you put in it. It needs to be kept up to date on a daily basis. Workamajig does it all¿ everything that I needed to run the business and make smart decisions¿ project management, financials, reporting, time tracking, etc . The set-up, customization and training took some time, but it was definitely worth it!

We've been using Workamajig for over a year now, and with the recent release(s) of Platinum, it continues to get more and more user-friendly. If you don't have your company processes documented prior to signing up, it's probably a good idea to do that first. With the right information, you can inform Workamajig and enhance your production efficiency. It is VERY complex, but only to those who have to dig into the nuts and bolts of the software. Overall, we've been pleased with the software and will continue to use it.

We used Workamajig for a while. It's not a great fit for a small agency, though I could see it being useful for a shop that needed something really feature-rich¿it is certainly comprehensive. However, that comes with a lack of the flexibility that you see in web-based tools like Brightpod or Trello. It is not easy to get data out of it that you might need, and it tended to break or just be clunky to use.

We switched from base camp to workamajig, and it wasn't easy. We love the advanced features for billing and plugins with other billing software, but the software itself isn't great. It's constantly glitching and the previous version looked (and acted) like something straight out of the 90s. I have high hopes for the new version though!

Workamajig has all the tools you need to successfully manage client projects. The problem is that it's UX is not great and the design looks like it's from 2001. Luckily, they've rolled out a new update, Platinum, so at least they're moving in the right direction!
