Workfront’s new AI resource management, proofing capabilities, and added integrations helps teams to work smarter and produce their best work — together
SILICON SLOPES, UTAH — March 7, 2018 — Workfront®, the leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced the release of new capabilities to help knowledge workers work smarter and produce their best work. The new release enables organizations to avoid running their resources into the ground with new artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled resource management and planning, and move digital work forward faster than ever before with improved proofing functionalities. The new Jira integration eliminates duplicate work by allowing teams to stay in Jira, all while the work they are doing is being captured in Workfront.
“We recently did a study that showed employees only spend 44% of their time performing their primary job duties,” said Steven ZoBell, chief technology and product officer of Workfront. “The majority of their time is spent navigating diverse tools, shifting through data repositories, and trying to gather information from disparate teams. This is not the way modern work should be managed. Workfront modernizes how organizations succeed by empowering teams and departments to work together, and work smarter, in ways not possible before, and thus becoming the operational system of record for the work being completed.”
Some of the highlights from this release include:
