Alaskan Creative Agency Enjoys Years of Success With Workamajig

June 15, 2016

Industry Leader's Dynamic Platform Streamlines Spawn Ideas' Operations 

ANTHEM, AZ--(Marketwired - June 15, 2016) -  Workamajig, the worldwide leader in integrated software for ad agencies and others in the creative and design industries, today announced it is releasing a report detailing a decade-long success story with Spawn Ideas, an Alaska-based creative agency. A case study highlighting the impressive results achieved with Workamajig's platform is now available for free download at

Spawn Ideas is Alaska's leading advertising/marketing firm and has extended its reach into the Pacific Northwest and Denver. For years, Spawn used an accounting system that failed to meet the varied project management needs its operation required. For example, the system did not include a company-wide calendar, project scheduling, or contact management. Moreover, a clerk physically keypunched timesheets into the system for billing and accounts payable. The system was inefficient, and Spawn realized it needed to make a drastic change.

About 10 years ago, Spawn turned to Creative Manager Pro, the solution that today is known as Workamajig. The platform was one of the first to incorporate the cloud (which was just emerging at the time) into its operation -- an important feature for Spawn because of its Alaska location and its reliance on freelancers in the continental U.S.

Immediately and over the past decade, Workamajig's solution has provided numerous benefits to Spawn's operations, including:

  • Spawn's account supervisors use Workamajig's project dashboard module to monitor the life of each project in regard to schedule and budget.
  • Internal committees use Workamajig's platform to measure and grow profitability.
  • Workamajig's project communication features permit clients access to the accounting system, thus eliminating practically all of the paper reports that were printed out the end of every month.
  • Spawn can now directly update spreadsheets with financial information.

"Spawn Ideas is the perfect example of how the Workamajig platform can transform the way an agency defines efficiency and improve results," says Ron Ause, Workamajig's Director of Marketing. "Spawn has consistently sought ways to automate and streamline its processes using the smartest and most progressive resources. Our relationship with Spawn is a decade strong, and we look forward to continue helping the agency achieve and enjoy its success."
