Latest News (Spring Release 2022)
G2 Spring Release - April 2022
Screendragon's collection of G2 awards has grown further with the addition of two new badges in G2's Spring Release 2022! In addition to earlier awards for support, client management, meeting requirements, and setup, we're delighted to be named as a leader in the Resource Management category while we also received two more badges of excellence for 'Best Usability' and 'Easiest Admin'. This is in addition to cementing our place as the #1 Professional Services Automation software for enterprise!
Resource Management - Leader
The core principle of work management is the practice of managing time better. Resource Management software at a basic level helps teams plan their time, schedule work, find vacant time slots, and assign jobs to staff. Screendragon’s resource management functionality automates resource scheduling, utilization tracking, pipeline, and capacity planning and much more. All resourcing activities are monitored and accessible in a series of visual dashboards, analytics, and reports.
In G2’s latest release, Screendragon was named a leader for Resource Management. If you’d like to see why our customers rate us so highly in resource management then why not schedule a 30-minute tour of our software below?
Professional Services Automation - #1 for Enterprise
We’re proud to have received awards for our capabilities in work management, marketing resource management, and resource management, but our performance in the professional services automation category is taking pride of place right now.
Among our professional services customers are a host of global agency networks such as McCann World Group, Landor & Fitch, Arc Worldwide and Interbrand as well as many fast growing small agencies . Agencies use Screendragon’s cloud-based agency management solution to create new ways to increase collaboration, productivity and compliance while decreasing silos, duplication of efforts and costs. As of today, Screendragon is ranked #1 among Professional Services Automation vendors in the enterprise space!
Screendragon is a wide-ranging work management tool with a lengthy list of features, but our best-in-class development team keep user experience and customer success at the heart of everything we do. This means that Screendragon is a tool that can be learned and used effectively by anyone (not just project managers!) as it is simple in design while being sophisticated in performance.
Our latest award for 'Best Usability' is based on Screendragon's performance in customer satisfaction, meeting requirements, and user adoption. We believe this badge is proof that there’s a big difference between making a simple product versus making a product simple!
Screendragon has been built from the ground up to be configurable and cater for different ways of working that exist between businesses. Practically every aspect of the platform can be managed using web-based admin tools. This flexibility and intuitiveness will excite project managers and admins as much as CMOs and creatives!
