Build your agency's biggest asset—your process library

In this third phase, our goal is to lead you through our proven process to help you document and templatize your core processes, migrate all client projects into ClickUp, and help your team use your new processes and workflows to make better plans and assign work based on workload. Throughout this phase, we'll be setting your team up for sustainable growth with a business that's completely systematized and processes that are followed by all.

We'll guide you through four main intensives to streamline your operations in ClickUp

Your leadership team, entire organization, and in-house ClickUp Champion will receive tailored support and training to build the system, maintain it, and uphold accountability. Taking you through key phases of building efficient operations:

Stage 1: Process building

Your subject-matter experts work closely with our team to convert your SOPs and processes into actionable ClickUp templates.

We'll lead you through the process of building processes and ensure all of your templates follow best practices and are fully equipped to help your team do better work, faster.

Stage 2: Migration prep

Next, well coach your client leads in how to structure and manage client work in ClickUp.

We'll cover everything from setting up client projects to packaging and tracking deliverables.

Stage 3: Migration execution

With your processes built and client work structured, your team will start executing projects fully in ClickUp.

Client leads will continue to master the new workflows and guide their teams in the new system—creating a single source of truth and providing excellent visibility into project progress and workload.

Stage 4: Workload management

As you settle into the new workflows, your team leads will learn how to leverage the new data visibility for better resource planning and allocation.

We'll cover tracking team capacity, managing workloads, and optimizing resource utilization.

Your team will begin to follow our workload-driven project management methodology.

 

By the end of the project management intensives phase, you'll have your core agency processes built out in ClickUp, client work fully managed and executed in ClickUp, improved visibility into project progress and team workloads, and a team that's proficient in managing work the ZenPilot way.

ZenPilot Project Management Intensives
ZenPilot Training Center-1

Cohort-based training for communal learning

You won't be going through this transformation alone. We structure the intensives into weekly cohorts, so you'll be working alongside other agencies at the same stage of their ClickUp journey.

Each stage has a dedicated cohort, allowing for targeted learning and peer support.

Your process experts will be involved in the Process Building cohort, your client leads in the Migration Prep and Execution cohorts, and your team leads in the Workload Management cohort.

Comprehensive support and coaching

In addition to the cohort-based learning, your team will have access to:

On-demand training in our training center

Your team will be invited to our training center, where they'll gain access to 10+ hours of on-demand ClickUp and agency operations courses, allowing for self-paced learning.

Additionally, this training center will grant them access to 100+ ClickUp FAQs and documented training materials, plus a community of like-minded operators implementing ClickUp.

A dedicated ZenPilot coach

Your coach will provide one-on-one support, answering questions, providing feedback on your processes, and guiding you through the intensives.

Leadership alignment sessions

We'll regularly meet with your leadership team to ensure the implementation aligns with your broader business goals and strategies.

ClickUp champion support

We'll provide advanced training and support for your in-house ClickUp expert, empowering them to lead the change internally.

ZenPilot template library

Jumpstart your process building with access to our library of 200+ tried-and-tested ClickUp templates built specifically for service-based businesses.

 

Your team will be provided with all the tools they'll need to build a finely-tuned operational system that not only boosts efficiency, but fosters a culture of accountability and continuous improvement within your agency.

ZenPilot Reporting + Optimization

What's next?

With your processes documented and your team working efficiently in ClickUp, you're ready to enter the optimization and reporting stage.

At this point, you've only just begun the journey to a more productive, profitable, and healthy team. You've built a single source of truth with a ton of data, but it's time to bring that data to life and use it to make strategic decisions.

In Phase 4, we'll continue to help you leverage the full power of your newly implemented system for reporting, ongoing optimization, and strategic decision-making—providing advanced reporting and continuous workflow enhancements, automation builds, and custom solutions to improve team productivity.

Our agency has tried many project management tools over the years, but when we migrated to ClickUp we finally felt like we got it right. But hiring ZenPilot to help us implement it was an even better decision -- easily the best investment we made in our agency's growth. In the year since implementing ClickUp, our business has doubled, and our project management systems and structure have been able to adapt and scale with us

Hiring ZenPilot is the best thing I've done since my time at LegalZoom.

We function so much more smoothly now. We can accommodate more projects, and our general volume of work has increased significantly. It's been an absolute game-changer.

If you're on the fence about this decision and your team needs some organizational support, do it. You won't regret it.

How long does the process take?

That depends entirely on your stated goals, but most teams will undergo a complete transformation using our 1-3-5 Formula in 5-6 months and will have recouped their investment in profit margin by 12 months.

To provide a more thorough breakdown, you can expect the timeline to look something similar to this:

Our goal is to provide you with continuous support, ensuring that your operations remain lean, efficient, and ahead of the curve. So while a complete operational transformation can be achieved within three months, many of our most successful clients choose to extend our partnership beyond two years. Operational excellence is an ongoing endeavor, and ZenPilot is committed to guiding your agency's growth and evolution every step of the way.
What does the time investment look like when working with ZenPilot?

This all depends on the stage that your team is in.

If you're in the Blueprint phase, you should expect your implementation team to be spending 1-2 hours weekly. This time will mostly be allocated to calls with our team, but also a few assignments that we will have for your team in between calls.

If you're beyond the Blueprint phase, you should expect your implementation team to be spending 2-4 hours per week on the project. This work is grouped into a few buckets:

  • 1 hour weekly attending calls with ZenPilot
  • 30-45 minutes weekly consuming asynchronous course materials
  • 60-120 minutes weekly completing tasks related to building templates, migrating, and optimizing the workspace (depending on where in the timeline the team is)

We'd recommend batching "ZenPilot work." Our most successful clients spend one whole morning or afternoon each week dedicated to just working with ZenPilot—building processes, completing coursework, optimizing their workspace, etc.

Who is ZenPilot's ideal client?

We partner with agencies, internal marketing teams, and professional service firms that desire to improve visibility, reduce internal chaos, and get more clarity.

However, truly achieving gold-standard operations and clarity for all requires time, effort, and the willingness to buy-in, embrace, and love the process. The teams that are successful are the ones that:

  • Desire to reduce internal chaos and give team members more clarity.
  • Desire to be excellent at managing projects to deliver great client results on time and within budget.
  • Desire to improve visibility into team performance, capacity planning, and results.
  • Desire to be more systematic, process-driven, and organized.
  • And have a willingness to pay for expertise and listen to experience. They "want what works."

If you have the desire and motivation to spend the necessary time to eliminate chaos, you're a perfect fit for ZenPilot.

Do you only work with agencies?

Not exactly! We also work with in-house marketing teams (who often see themselves as an "internal agency")—one example is the marketing crew at LegalZoom.

And we work with businesses who do client work that may not necessarily see themselves as agencies, such as accounting firms.

While it's true that our expertise runs deepest in the agency space (and we have a library of 200+ plug-and-play process templates for that specific context), we have lots of advice and specific frameworks to share for any business that wants to put an end to chaotic project management and stop hopping from one PM tool to the next.

How much does it cost to work with ZenPilot?

ZenPilot employs a monthly subscription model broken into three tiers: Economy ($4,000/month), Business ($6,000/month), and First Class ($9,000/month).

Each of these subscription tiers is fully points-based and is crafted to offer unparalleled flexibility and to ensure our services align perfectly with your agency's shifting needs over time.

However, teams working with ZenPilot typically invest at least $16,000.
