Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Project Management – Workzone web-based project management software is simple to use but has features that can provide excellent project information at various levels of detail. The Projects Dashboard shows a summary view of where all projects stand across departments, clients or campaigns. Users can standardize processes and save time by creating templates. Project timelines, tasks, responsibilities, and dependencies are all visible in auto-generated and editable Gantt charts. As items are completed, the project plan gets automatically updated. Status alerts identify tasks that are late and projects that are falling behind with colorful symbols and automatic email alerts. The software also has a Personal To-do list for each user for a focused view of daily tasks.
- Document Sharing and Collaboration – This collaboration software is ideal for distributed teams. Every document and task has a comment area where users can discuss changes, record notes and detail conversations. So, they can comment and collaborate in one central place. Also, relevant team members will be automatically notified, so everyone is on the same page. With the right access and permission, feedback can be quick and easy by directly adding markup comments and approving PDFs or images within the software.
- Centralized Requests, Resource Management, Status Reports, and more – Workzone enables users to create custom forms that allow people outside the team to make project requests. Requests can be accepted, commented on, or be denied online, all in one central place. They can view workload and utilization, to make sure no one is over- or underloaded with work. They can also generate reports complete with charts and graphs that show the status of campaigns and projects. They can choose from a selection of pre-built reports or create a custom one. These can be exported to PDF or Excel format.
