SILICON SLOPES, UT — April 6, 2016 — To support its strong year-over-year business growth and business transformation, YA, one of the largest engagement marketing and promotional companies, implemented Workfront to meet faster time-to-market requirements while remaining committed to executional excellence. Because all employees now have visibility into the hundreds of campaigns being run monthly, YA has seen strong efficiency improvement across the organization.
Prior to deploying Workfront, project managers used several approaches to communicate project goals to their cross-functional team colleagues, but did not have a comprehensive view of communications or milestones across all of the 300-500 campaigns running monthly. And although they already had a legacy time-tracking system in place, they wanted a single, integrated project and resource management solution that would enable better collaboration, visibility and accountability.
Now YA’s more than 150 employees — in every department within the company — use Workfront to communicate about client projects in real time. The single platform has reduced email traffic, and staff members now have a clear repository and chain of information. The historical record that Workfront provides is especially helpful in getting new and existing employees or teams up to speed as they are joining a new project.
“We absolutely see the benefits of greater standardization, transparency and accountability,” said Chris Behrens, YA President and CEO. “In Workfront, every project has clear deliverables and deadlines. With every functional team using the solution, we gain efficiencies across the board — from proposal development to project delivery.”
In addition to the increase in efficiency following its deployment of Workfront, YA has also benefited from better visibility into resource utilization and the ability to provide complete project transparency across teams.
“Looking ahead, we can see the value of adding Workfront functionality to help us become more efficient while we simultaneously transform and grow our business,” said Janeen Coyle, YA Senior Vice President, PMO and Client Delivery.
