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.

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.

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.

Since our company first began using Wrike in 2014, there have been improvements with the software and its ease of use. Our company is able to utilize Wrike in a way that is beneficial to the productivity of our team.

Advice to Others

Implementing Wrike into your schedule can be a problem as many people don't like changes. But if everyone is on board, Wrike is the way to go to efficiently carry out tasks.

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.

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!

Pros

Helpful, Time and Budget, Accounting

Cons

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

Wrike is a great company. Not just because they have great products, but because they also have great customer service and really engage users well through their wrike club.

Pros

The product is easy to use and very quick. They have something called the Wrike Club where you can earn rewards and engage people who use Wrike better.

Cons

The price is outrageous. It is way too expensive and you have to sign an annual contract.
