Workfront Enables Creative Team to Complete 55% More Tasks per Week from Twice as Many Requesters.
Creative work takes time and energy. There are no shortcuts to developing amazing designs and programs. Unfortunately, many creative teams become so mired in internal production-related processes—logging time, attending status meetings, engaging in back-and-forth communications with clients, and searching for missing assets—that they can’t deliver their best work. Freeing its creative team from too many broken processes was exactly what Workfront set out to do when it began using Agile functionalities in its own marketing work management solution. Through better tools, prioritization and project cadence, the team has been able to apply the right amount of process and reclaim valuable creative time and energy.
