Join us as we talk to Michael about his experiences using Workamajig and how it's directly affected his ability to make real-time decisions. He leaves us advice to always listen to the account manager and use the right tool in the correct way. "Learn the Workamajig way"

Workamajig is a fully integrated project management system that does it all for advertising agencies and in-house creative teams.


My name is Michael Noel, I'm the senior staff accountant at Core Creative in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
Where did you first hear about Workamajig?
I first heard about Workamajig because I was hired on and we were already using it. We started using it in 2012 and I was hired on three years ago-2015.
At that point, we have been using it for quite some time but one of the selling points for me to come to core creative was the fact that they were using an ERP system.
Why is Workamajig so important?
Often in accounting you have a revenue recognition software and then you have your actual GL software and then you have your monthly clients software so you have all these different programs that you need to interface to one GL -one set of books - with Workamajig it gets great because it's all their in-house, one location and when you work the program the way it's intended to be working it's really easy to use.
What is your favorite thing about Workamajig?
I don't ever want to have to work in Excel. I want these reports and everything to just be at hand, working real-time, making decisions quickly instead of spending time compiling reports and working in Excel and doing formatting I just query the data and then am able to make decisions and spend my time doing analytics instead of having to do manual work.
What advice would you give to new users?
My advice would be to listen to your account managers.
Too often programs are tried to be integrated in a way that works for the user but really it's trying to pound in a screw with a hammer, you have to use the right tool in the way that it was designed to be used and Workamajig will solve all your problems if you use it the correct way but just don't go off course and try to use it in or tweak things-no, just learn the Workamajig way.
What would you say to someone considering Workamajig?
Workamajg is an ERP system it's what you want to be moving towards in today's age. You don't want to have to be using different systems, you don't want to have to be doing those things, you don't want to have to be looking in different places for the same information-it's all there and it's not like it's an expensive program by today's standards whatsoever, it's the best mid-market marketing software out there.
