Overall a useful tool; somewhat complicated at first, but once you interact with the dashboard a few times it becomes second nature.

Great for collaborating with co-workers!

Pros

Clear layout, many different ways to view project timelines and tasks that need to be completed, easy to collaborate with people who are also using Wrike.

Cons

Takes some time to learn how to use it the most effectively, would be nice to be able to collaborate with others without them having to pay for the program.

good mobile app!

Pros

s space that is defined by tasks, program objectives and status, and that gets out of the email chain

Cons

some less than intuitive features- wish we could put our logo on it at the lowest paid level (like Smartsheet, our former software). For paid subscriptions, should be able to do that.

Better colours and general look would help to get our team attracted to the app.

Pros

We have kept Wrike for it's Gantt Charts features which are essential for our work. It's a good way of seeing our work flow.

Cons

We've noticed the team doesn't particularly like using Wrike because of it's kind of corporate look and feel. Some find it hard to navigate. We use Slack, Gmail, Calendar, etc and Wrike was not the easiest thing to sell to the team as a whole.

It has fully automated our projects and setting up project templates is a breeze. Our main problem with other software was the inability to have milestones change based on dates that affected the timeline Wrike solves that problem. Wrike allows you to invite key players outside of your network as collaborators this function keeps everyone on task and update on the project.

Wrike is a super efficient platform for collaboration and organization within a business. It can organize tasks, schedules, discussions and company files all in one shared place. It can also sync employees, and can even get clients involved. There are 3 main components to this app which consist of projects, folders and tasks. And while the benefits of this app far outweigh the negative, my biggest issue with Wrike has been that the setup seems a bit confusing to me, and outside of the Wrike webinar that I took, there are no tutorials available online to walk potential users through in order to make usage of the app more efficient.

Pros

The creation of projects with the ability to assign subtasks and dependencies is a really great feature. I also really like the "timeline view" which enables users to see the progression of a project, including all of the dependencies, so that if something is delayed in the process of a project, we are able to project how much time it will take us to complete the entire project now with these varying components and the change of events / due dates.

Cons

It does not have a shared calendar for employees to view a daily, monthly or yearly tasks divvied up, and there are no tutorials available online to teach users how to use the app. I also feel like I could be doing so much more with the app than I am currently aware of. But I am finding difficulty in navigating through it without any sense of direction. This is especially a little frustrating for people who are new to project management, and really have no idea where to begin, or even how to divvy up the tasks in a comprehensive manner for all of our current employees. It would help to have tutorials, offer one-on-one sessions, or even just to have little pop-ups that explain the app as you go, with helpful hints and tips.

Advice to Others

I would advise others to explore this app, it is really useful if they can take the time to teach themselves how to use it.

A great project management tool

Value for Money

This program stands apart from many other programs that I have investigated for project management! Even today I still use the free version to keep track of little notes and schedules on multiple projects. The full version allows you to set up contingencies to make sure you do one thing before another! It's great for setting up reminders and adding little notes. I know I work on hundreds of projects and each one is a little different. Wrike makes it easy to add notes pertaining to one project and then look it up again when you are ready to move to the next step.

Pros

The free version is incredibly powerful and offers a lot of useful tools right out of the gate

Cons

Wish it had a little more functionality and reliability with scheduling. When I really relied on this for scheduling I found that automatic (behind the scene's) features would adjust the dates I entered which caused me to miss some deadlines! Wish there was a way to override scheduling/date changes

Advice to Others

It's got a great free version what's the harm in giving it a try? For paying nothing you really get a lot!

This tool is very easy to use. Most of the navigation and functions are intuitive. It doesn't require a lot of time to set up the tasks and even assign them to various users. Even the administration of the tool isn't cumbersome. I've loved using this tool!

Pros

The communication and notifications are very good.

Cons

The only complaint I have is that the view sorts of the tasks could be a little better more like Excel.

Wrike For Flipping Houses

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

I am a software developer by trade and training. We (my wife and I) decided to try our hand at flipping houses. Naturally, I wanted to find some software tools to help support us. After trying many tools we settled on Wrike. My requirements were as follows

1. Was inexpensive enough that we could afford
2. Was cloud-based and had a good experience on mobile and web
3. Allowed us to assign resources to a project without them actually having to use the tool (Good luck getting most small shop trades ppl to use your new software tool)
4. Allowed us to keep information together for a given project
5. Helped us gauge job end dates
6. Allowed us to see critical paths in tasks
7. Allowed us to see where slips were going to happen before they happened
8. Allowed us to do post-mortem reviews of projects so we could use data to hone in on our weak spots

What we didn't need
1. Document collaboration
2. Group Chat
3. Group workspaces (i.e. we weren't hosting meetings etc out of the software)
4. Didn't want/need CRM or invoicing features

Wrike fit the bill in most of the things we needed. In addition, I have found their customer support to be outstanding, both over the phone and in online chats. The price for higher end features can get expensive, but all in all, it is a good value for the money and would recommend to other people with similar needs. I look forward to seeing how it scales with many projects.

Pros

- Intuitive interface
-Great mobile solution
- Dependencies are easy to create
- Reasonable price
- Great support

Cons

I wish they did not impose a 5 user minimum as we are much smaller than than. I also wish the project sharing was slightly more intuitive

Advice to Others

If you are looking low friction way of managing timelines and tasks then I think this tool is great fit.

After reviewing a variety of PM software solutions, I recommended Wrike to the company I had recently joined. As a dedicated Project Manager, I have the luxury of dedicating time to learning how Wrike operates, setting up the folders, projects and naming conventions as other team members joined in. We were assigned a Wrike Consultant who has guided us through the steps of their Deployment Plan, ensuring we are on track and answering any questions that arise along the way.
We still have more features to incorporate into our routine and we're excited about their application.

Pros

The @mention within tasks provides seamless documentation of communication between team members.
The timeline view with dependencies allows for a fantastic overview of a project's progress with the freedom to adjust as necessary.

Cons

Shift+Return is generally used to enter a new paragraph. Within Wrike, it is used as a full enter - which results in a lot of submissions requiring editing because the user expects this to simply create a new paragraph.
Still trying to determine how to incorporate communication from external sources (ie email from non-users or Slack messages are being copied/pasted which is time consuming and inconvenient).

Advice to Others

Use the free trial period to its full extent before committing.

I've been using Wrike (enterprise) for the last year and it's a good project management and task management tool. Real easy to setup and configure. Excellent built-in Gantt charts for easy visualization of project timelines. Task tracking and collaboration with team members is fairly easy as well.

We tried to use it for our SCRUM and failed - while you can setup issue tracking and SCRUM task statuses, it's not designed to do that. Nor is it designed to be a CRM. We were sold on both these features but it's far from there.

Pros

Excellent UX and ease of use.
Consistent UX across platforms - computer, tablet, phone.
Easy to search and find tasks.
Excellent task organization through tagging.

Advice to Others

It's like Slack, but better. It's much better than MS Project.

It's not like Jira - but Jira isn't great either. It won't replace your email. It won't replace your CRM.

This was an awesome product that I'm going to consider purchasing for myself to get organized. I used it at a company that I worked for a while ago and my new workplace used the trial product. I loved the integration with adobe products and file management option. It is very easy to use and it helps me stay really organized in my work. I have a lot of different projects going on at once, most of the time, and this is very useful.

Wrike worked well for me. I'm in accounting so I took advantage of the time and budget feature, also file management. Before, we were just using Google Docs but this is much of efficient. It's a big transition going from all old-fashioned paperwork to a big database. It's definitely something I would have to get used to as I am not the most tech savvy person in the world, but it's easy to use as I said. And the customer service is great too with help guides, etc. I also found some Youtube videos that helped with learning how to navigate the program. Wrike was a lot like other products that's why I gave it just 3 stars. It seemed pretty average as far as I don't see any edge above the competition, but that doesn't mean it isn't a great product because it's GREAT!

If it was up to me, I would definitely choose Wrike for our office! Our company tested out a few sites from Software Advice and this was my favorite. It was very easy to use and I got a lot of use out of the file management because my whole team could work on one document at the same time. I also requested forms a lot from our business development department and this saved the hassle of emailing or walking everything over. I'm going to consider using Wrike for my own side business because it's really great.

I spoke several times with reps for Write. They were very pushy. I needed software for two users, for internal management of construction projects. They kept insisting that I need an upgraded account and that it would work great for my needs. It wasn't, and we didn't need to spend a premium amount for our needs.

I did a software walk-through with reps and they were trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. It is not ideal for construction management, and it is greatly overpriced if you only need it for a couple of project managers. However their sales team hassles me to this day, and I wish I had never tried the program

Pros

Clean look, easy to use

Cons

Upgraded account adds more features and confusion that doesn't well beyond traditional cleric functions.

Advice to Others

Research and watch demonstration videos before attempting to sample Write or contact the company....you could regret it

Cons

I did not like that most of the key features were at a cost. I thought some more should be included in the free version so I could see them at work over time. Overall when looking into the software I was not impressed and thought some the marketing was effective but the overall product was lacking.

This software is becoming core to the central administration of projects across three teams in the service. I would not be able to manage the staff and workload here without it - delegation has become much simpler!

Pros

Wrike has a very user-friendly interface, intuitive shortcuts, responsive forums and help request functions, so the answer is never far away if you get stuck. Planning tasks for the day, week, and fortnight is simple, as is managing overdue tasks and keeping an eye on critical dependencies.

Cons

Functionality is extremely limited on IE, so some team members get confused between multiple browsers when they're working. Functionality is also limited depending on the license bracket you're in, so what you see happening in the pilot won't necessarily happen if you start out on a smaller-scale once you purchase.

There are many benefits we've seen but the biggest benefit is transparency, collaboration and reporting.

Pros

We love the transparency of it. We know what everyone is working on and the status on our projects. We can report on our work and quickly make adjustments to the backlog when needed. Collaboration is better than ever before and the ability to report has been incredible.

Cons

There are some buggy things we've found with how projects are sorted in the My Work and Folders areas. It doesn't cause a major stoppage, but is more of an annoyance. We do wish that there was an icon next to a project if there are attachments on the project, just like the paperclip icon next to the title of a Task that shows that there are attachments. Also, the ability to duplicate reports and give selective rights to reports would add so much more value to an already great software.

We're a small team of about 15 employees and were originally hesitant to bring on a project management software since email seemed to be working alright for our needs but after realizing things were getting lost in the shuffle, we decided to try Wrike out.

I'm so glad we did. We've been using them for about three years and it's really helped us move forward in project planning and scoping. Right off the bat, Wrike held a training for our company. They did an in-depth training for those of us who were looking to learn the application inside/out and an overall training for the rest of the team. Sure, lots of people do training but then they followed up about 30 days later to uncover what we felt was lacking. From there they did a second training where they helped us customize our work space. I thought that was a really nice touch.

Currently we use Wrike to manage internal and external team hours, create project scoping timelines, uncover potential roadblocks and to get everyone on the same page about changes/updates/etc. It's a great tool. One of my favorite features is that you can print individualized reports for a person or print out the total hours by project.

I'd love for Wrike to add more color and font customization options just because it's hard to see changes sometimes in the comment boxes. I'd also like to see more customization options for the interface for individual users. Overall, I'd recommend Wrike if you're looking to grow your business efficiency.

Pros

Multiple chart options for displaying timelines
Easy comment buttons (can just reply to an email and everything is captured)
Ability to create custom folders and other set up features
Can grab a visual of a project in under 30 seconds
Customized reporting options

Cons

If you don't do the training up front or keep up with updates you can easily get lost. Wrike has some awesome features but you have to stay on your toes to take advantage of them.

We paid for a year of this software, with all the best expectations. However, as we began to use it, we found that for our size organization, it was more time and trouble to keep it updated than it was not to use it. Their no-refund policy is incredibly customer-unfriendly, and, as a small education nonprofit, has really deprived us of a sum that is significant to us, for a SAAS we are not able to use. It's not like a product that we used up so we can't return it. Wrike would incur no additional loss for bandwidth we didn't use by refunding us our money. Frankly I am shocked, and would tell others not to take the risk of purchasing it. As certain as you may be that it meets your needs, the risk of finding out you don't like it as you go along, or circumstances change, can cost you a substantial sum.

Pros

We thought it was a powerful tool -- but none of that power is accessible if it takes too much time and energy to use it. (for a small staff)

Cons

Time consuming to update projects.

Advice to Others

Caveat emptor.

Wrike is my favourite Saas decision for my work and personal life. I have two accounts - one is for personal GTD and the second is for my teams, where I do my tasks, even if in reality there are no people in these projects - just for self-registration of completed tasks.

- What are the features you like most in Wrike? 1. A flexibility of projecting regimes - you can do it under waterfall, or kanban (boards), or even scrum . 2. A flexibility of tasks views. 3. You can have a deal with numbers and a resource management inside your project management in Wrike. 4. http://club.wrike.com - a place where you can earn additional bonuses and a real money on amazon! 5. vote.wrike.com - a place where you can source the devs about new features and they usually respond! 6. wrike labs - a place where you can switch on/off the prototypical features

- What are some of your favorite Wrike updates? Custom Statutes, Custom Fields, Reports, Dashboards/Boards

- What would you add to Wrike features? Oh, there are many of them. A good normal integrated calendar, not a current one, a normal internal instant messenger, which will be a really instant - a current system of commentaries doesn't work properly with a really needed for a typical burst conversation without pressing f5, some lacks in the dashboards and widgets interface are needed to neutralized, a desktop client version is strongly needed, because chrome browser could have too many opened pages, including custom statuses feature in a professional plan is strongly needed for those who don't need the other functionality of a business version!

- Who would take advantage of using Wrike? Pms, marketers, freelancers, small agile taskforces

- How did Wrike change the way you work? I'm trying to register all my life in it from a moment

This is a lifesaver if you're working with a large number of people. I have used a number of project management platforms, and this one has been the easiest to scale and control permissions for.
