Workzone product overview
Workzone is a project management solution that offers document management, project collaboration, customizable reporting, resource and task management and time tracking. The software is cloud-based and offers automated emailed reports with up to date project status information. Accessible from any web browser on a PC or Mac, Workzone’s cloud-based project management software is hosted on secure servers and backed up continuously, ensuring data security and redundancy.
One of the more mature web-based project management systems available, Workzone offers an excellent balance between sophisticated functionality and intuitive user experience, which makes it a great fit for teams with varying levels of project management experience. Workzone users call it the “just right” balance between casual project management tools and enterprise solutions such as Microsoft Project.
Pros of Workzone
Workzone recognizes that adoption and process change are about more than just project management software; no platform can single-handedly change your culture and processes. With that in mind, Workzone has invested heavily in their support process and team.
Cons of Workzone
Workzone is an 18-year-old software company. While it has obviously grown and changed in that time, it also lacks many of the “bells and whistles” of newer project management software. But they say their longevity is due to knowing how to get teams productive on their platform using and adding the features they actually need.
Breakdown of core features
Workzone’s dashboard is one of a few on the market that allows you to see every project at one time. Perfect for status review meetings, the project dashboard helps get everyone on the same page and see the bigger picture.
Workzone’s daily to-do lists give each user a cross-project view to help them focus their day. As each user updates their own to-do list, the project plans get updated automatically, so the project manager can see progress immediately.
Save any project as a template and it can be reused the next time you have a similar project or process. WorkZone can quickly lay out the project schedule from a start date or work backward from a deadline. Project templates reinforce consistent processes across the organization as well as save time.
