April 15, 2013

Workamajig (, the leading worldwide integrated software for ad agencies and others in the creative and design industries, added another notch in its creative belt by again being named a top choice, this time by Jackie Shaffer in the March / April issue of How Magazine.

Workamajig relies heavily on client feedback as the most important tool in its toolbox, which seems to keep Workamajig ahead of the pack.

In explaining the role of client feedback, Ron Ause, Workamajig’s director of marketing, said, “One of the key mottos in our organization is ‘We’re Always Listening’. Every Workamajig employee from chief engineer to account manager to janitor knows to listen and pass on any interesting or notable client comments into our system of client requests and notes. That’s one of the Workamajig secrets to success!’ 

Jackie Shaffer of Cella Consulting is no stranger to helping agencies choose a Project Management Solution. Drawing on her consulting expertise, she recommends to readers to ‘be specific in your questions, e.g., Can you show me the simplest way to determine how much each client was billed last week?’
