Slack connection with Workfront breaks down work silos and technology barriers

SILICON SLOPES, UTAH — October 19, 2017 — Workfront®, the leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced an integration with Slack that helps brilliant minds accomplish great work by integrating work management directly into Slack.

“The modern way of working includes clean integrations between the various applications that customers have chosen,” said Steven ZoBell, Workfront Chief Product & Technology Officer.  “The new Workfront Slack integration allows teams to stay on target because they can now manage work items while collaborating in a Slack conversation. This breaks down some important technology barriers. With Workfront and Slack, organizations can eliminate silos as teams collaborate the way they want, while accomplishing the critical work of the organization, using the tools they prefer.”

As conversations happen in Slack, Workfront drives work forward, creating efficiencies for entire organizations. This is possible because creating and updating tasks, approving work, finding information faster, and logging time can all be done within Slack, with that information connected to projects in Workfront in real-time.

Unlike the Slack integrations from other vendors that force users to leave their conversation to engage in work in another part of Slack, the Workfront Slack integration helps teams do real work in Slack in the context of their conversations—and collaborate more efficiently as they:

  • Find Information Faster — Work management can be done directly in Slack and tie back to the work request in Workfront.  Team members can also search the status of tasks, projects and issues without ever leaving a conversation in Slack.
  • Stop Wasting Time — Eliminate the need to switch between applications. Quickly approve documents, tasks, and projects directly from Slack. Team members are also able to easily log hours directly from Slack into Workfront.
  • Stay on Target — Team members are able to check work in progress, approval queues, and request lists in Slack. They can also create tasks from Slack conversations and upload them directly to Workfront.
