WorkZone Software


 

WorkZone pairs sophisticated tools with an intuitive interface to offer an extremely powerful project management solution that’s accessible to less technical users. Their full suite of integrated applications also offers document management, project collaboration, customizable reporting, resource and task management, and time tracking. The software is web-based, with automated emailed reports that keep everyone up to date on project status in real time. 

WorkZone excels in providing project information at various levels of detail, to accommodate different user roles on the project. Senior managers will love the cross-project summaries that give organization-wide visibility to projects and resources. Tactical project managers use the automated project to-do lists to see at a glance what’s next on each project. Individual contributors get personalized to-do lists online and via email that keep them on point and let them update tasks quickly.

We really like the feature that links dependent tasks; it uses a specific task’s end date to calculate the following task’s start date. They’re a great fit for projects with tasks that follow a set sequence.  WorkZone automatically notifies the next party downstream when the dependent task is completed. Project templates allow for quick creation of projects that  are done frequently.

WorkZone also includes secure web-based file sharing and collaboration. Users can manage multiple  versions of documents, with different user roles and file permissions controlling who sees what. The online collaboration module is great for creative review; users can mark up images or PDFs and approve documents online, and WorkZone keeps a permanent copy on file. 

WorkZone has been providing project management software in the industry for over a decade. We recommend them to companies managing various projects or clients, who need sophisticated, yet easy-to-use tools that help them stay organized with multiple views and automated alerts.

WorkZone helps managing project timeline to be broken out into small tasks. Based upon tasks, it's easier to manage the project timeline. The project team is accountable to manage the tasks and they mark the tasks as completed once it is done.

Advice to Others

The timeline can be managed and the tasks can be assigned easily.

I like the functionality of managing projects with WorkZone. But in terms of usability, I strongly believe that the interface needs to be worked upon. It follows traditional approach and sometimes navigating and finding information is tough.

Managing projects are so easy with WrokZone. All tasks can be shared with the team and their time can be managed within the WorkZone. Resource allocation is easier through this system and one can see the assigned work to them.

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.

Advice to Others

In terms of functionality, this app works great. Can be made some improvement for the usability.

We have been on Workzone for several years, and my team really enjoys interacting with it. There is ability to look at the projects globally as well as in detail. Steps can be built in for different teams, and the reporting ability is wonderful. We have implemented several successful projects lately, using Workzone.

Pros

Easy to use, reporting, and the support is great.

Cons

There should be a way to help you build your project and timelines. Like a project template that asks you the necessary questions: how many teams? what is the deadline? Do any tasks depend on other tasks? What needs to be shared? etc.

Advice to Others

Take the time to map out your projects!

There isn't a free demo to try. Other than that, everything from the initial demo and implementation went really well.

Recommendations

This is one of the best project management software that I have found. I compared Liquid Planner, Wrike, Basecamp, and Mindjet. For the price, support, and functionality, Workzone was definitely a cut above the rest. We are a company of 160+ employees and everyone from management to the basic user has expressed excitement over this product as well as a fast user adaptability.
