Wrike Project Management Software Review
Wrike is that kind of project management software which can be used by both small and big business alike, as it offers a lot of flexibility. There are several options for you as a business, various tiers of service, including a free plan and that’s excellent if you want to give it a spin first.
Wrike started up ten years ago in 2006 and among its clients I must mention big names like PayPal, Google and HTC. The company describes itself as a real time platform which mixes work management and collaboration.
In layman’s terms, using Wrike’s software you’ll benefit from having your own central place for allocating, organizing and tracking your team’s work. Being a centralized system in its essence, you can deal with deadlines and resources very easy, especially if your business has lots of employees.
With Wrike, you’ll have to deal with familiar and fairly simple project management tools, with resource planning and Gantt charts being at the heart of the platform. However, simple functionality and communication are essential, and here Wrike really does a great job, making the platform incredibly easy to use even if you’re not a techie.
Wrike is integrated with all kinds of services, like Google Drive, Gmail, Outlook and Dropbox and it uses a single window for displaying data about all your projects as a user. There’s also a news-feed which aims at keeping users informed in real time about all the recent activities and, the cherry on top sort to speak, mobile apps, meaning that Wrike can be accessed anytime, from anywhere using your smartphone, even if you’re on the go.
The app supports an unlimited number of projects, the setup is quick and intuitive and there’s even a time tracking feature, together with customizable reports and dashboards. Due to its intuitive design, Wrike offers lots of ways to integrate with other services and applications and it also works seamlessly with OpenOffice files, Microsoft Office files, PNGs, PDFs and JPGs.
