Great project management software that centralizes your team's work, creating an “operational system of record.”
Workfront is not for everyone. If you're a small team looking to get up and running quickly with project management software, then Workfront may not be the best choice – you can't even get started without talking to a salesperson. Nearly every other option we've looked at doesn't have that kind of delay for small teams, letting you sign up and start working within minutes.
That's not to say that Workfront doesn't have its appeal for smaller companies, however. It offers features such as single sign-on that other project management services don't typically offer in the lower tiers. The starting 2GB per user storage limit is not too bad, either. The question for smaller teams is whether they need a quick and easy solution, or want to go through a more formal set-up process with Workfront.
No public pricing
At-a-glance time budget feature for calendar
Good task filtering features
What is Workfront?
‘Built for enterprises’ – that's the first thing that comes to mind when looking at Workfront. This tool is all about helping large companies connect disparate teams using numerous digital platforms to get work done. Workfront says it also caters to smaller teams, but it's clearly built with large companies in mind, given the depth of its resource management capabilities – and the fact that Workfront customizes (some might say restricts) what you see based on your role within a company.
What makes Workfront particularly interesting, however, is its focus on centralization. It wants to be a company's “operational system of record.” That means taking in data from the company's various online tools, and putting them together to get work done in one spot. The key part of that aim is Fusion, a drag-and-drop tool for integrating third-party services with Workfront.
