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

- The features, functionality, reporting and customizations are seemingly endless.
- Fantastic tool for providing visibility into the more administrative aspects of a client's account, like invoices, retainers, budget spend, etc.

Cons

- Very cumbersome to use, especially for users tracking time on a daily basis.
- For advanced reporting, the learning curve is relatively high. Be prepared to spend some time figuring out how to get the data you need. However, once you understand how to use it, it will become an essential part of your business!

I like the ease of being able to track the amount of time being spent on a project. It helps be able to monitor time management between all employees working on a project.

Cons

The search capabilities seem to be very limited. Purchase orders seem to be a bit difficult to find if you don't know the specific data.

While it was very easy to use, it was also extremely basic so you had your limits when it came to sharing workloads across a team.

Pros

I really liked the running timer. It was extremely useful when I was working on projects that needed to be billed by the hour. I haven't found another project management tool that has it. I also liked that you could change your background to whatever you wanted.

Cumbersome interface, slow. The product suffers from an inability to focus, and tries to be all things to all people. The interface is really clunky and not intuitive. The onboarding process is long, drawn out, and expensive. Once you¿ve gone through it, you feel stuck.

The expansive features can be a double-edged sword. As great as it is to have so many features, it's also a bit frustrating trying to navigate the platform. the onboarding process for this program is a massive undertaking.

I already know how to use it, and it's minimally ok for time and expense tracking.

Pros

The new platinum version is a better UX than the old Flash app. After you know how to use it, it's minimally functional for what it does.

Cons

The core app is built in Flash, and doesn't work well at all. Also, the app doesn't export any data easily in any way whatsoever, and it's nearly impossible to get a hold of your data in a useable way.

an overview of projects and their due dates organized by tasks.

Pros

No longer in flash, it is an elegant design that is easy to read. The customer support is good. They work with you and often bugs are fixed. Projects are clearly sorted by deadline.

Cons

It's great for simple deadlines, but It doesn't have any tools to sort out congested schedules. e.g. what software can stop someone from being booked 84 hours in a single work day.

It's very manual. updating projects can be time consuming and human error with the interface has lead to scheduling errors. It's not very compatible with other common office programs (e.g. can't get it to sync for meetings in outlook and we don't want to use jig for all our meetings). This means we only use a small portion of the software relating to project schedules and budget.

Hard to establish priorities.

Some information is hard to find with their interface. (e.g. several clicks to find the task number required to enter your time if you are entering a task that you weren't assigned)

This software was easy to use, easy to adjust, and easy to teach people how to use it (provided you put in the time of course). It was customizable to our specific project workflow needs and would connect with accounting to account for billable hours.

Cons

There were a few features we would have liked to have for our project management processes that this software didn't have, although many companies would likely not need these features. One of them was being able to automatically assign teams to a specific project so we knew who would be working on those tasks; this step is manually with Workamajig.

Workamajig is a fantastic solution for a Marketing Project Management tool. It allows the Project Manager and subsequent teams to manage projects with ease while also interacting with billing, time tracking, and overall profitability analysis.

Pros

I love Workamajig's User Interface. After using various Project Management softwares in my day, Workamajig Platinum User Interface is easy to navigate and has an extremely successful adaptation for users. I also love the ability to customize workflows, add in additional deliverables based on the approval cycle, and communicate with other team members within the system.

Cons

While building out the workflows within Workamajig we had quite a few 'workamarounds' that we had to come up with in order for the system to meet our needs. An example is: I wanted an email to fire when a task was assigned, which was possible on all tasks, but the first one. One of our workamarounds for that was to have the first task be assigned to the PM and was titled "Close this Task" so that the next task would fire an email to the appropriate team member. That's just an example of some of the workamarounds we had to come up with. The Deliverables were also very difficult for us to monitor the status of.

So many processes are still manual (ie WIP and AR).

The platinum version is not user-friendly at all. The ability to have two windows up at once is key for my day to day funtionality.
