Charity Sees 850% Increase in Design Productivity with Workamajig

December 22, 2015

New Case Study Details How Worldwide Leader of Management Solutions for Creative Agencies Helped Barnardos Australia Streamline, Quantify Its Systems and Processes 

ANTHEM, AZ--(Marketwired - December 21, 2015) - Workamajig, the worldwide leader in integrated software for ad agencies and others in the creative and design industries, today announced that its innovative solutions helped Barnardos Australia, a leading child protection charity based in Sydney, realize an 850 percent increase in design productivity. A case study detailing these impressive results is available for free download here.

For more than 130 years, Barnardos has been at the forefront of child protection, finding real and permanent solutions for Australian children in desperate need. The organization has conducted branding and design services from its head office to internal departments for more than a decade, but it was struggling to manage and monitor a workload that included an average of 90 jobs per month. Specifically, Barnardos Australia could not track time, rounds of alterations, and external expenses, thus resulting in a lack of communication between departments and inconsistency in the agency's vision.

After extensive research and rounds of testing numerous project management systems, Barnardos Australia turned to Workamajig to help with its complex set of inter-departmental needs. Workmajig's solution:

  • Enabled Barnardos to store all internal information in a convenient, Web-accessible project management framework
  • Simplified and standardized approval processes to reduce internal errors
  • Provided tools to quantify work output, compute each department's monetary value, and predict future resource needs.

The result was an 850 percent boost in productivity in the six months following implementation. By automating and systematizing much of the agency's workflow, Workamajig allowed Barnardos Australia to focus on delivering both a high volume and a high quality of work. "The creative departments of Barnardos Australia have an important mission -- one that was bogged down because they didn't have a reliable administration system to manage workflow," says Ron Ause, Workamajig's Director of Marketing. "Our solutions allowed Barnardos to simplify and quantify internal branding and design processes. The result was improved productivity and a quantifiable ROI, thus allowing Barnardos to better promote its charity that helps the children of Australia."
