If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

Wrike

Wrike is great for one off projects. It doesn't work well for ongoing projects or recurring projects. Highly complex Gantt charting is tough.

  • Keeping track of notes made is easy

  • Notifications: These are great for keeping everyone in the loop regarding projects that are managing.
  • Organization: The subtasks feature is very great at keeping all of the steps of a project in one area.
  • Integration: It is easy to keep tasks up to date by using their email feature.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • The Gantt charting needs some work.
  • The lists of what tasks are assigned to you can get long and daunting because it shows up in this list no matter how far out it is scheduled.
  • The update emails don't have enough information to always know which task the update is related to. To fix this you have to put the name of the parent task in the subtasks.

I would be 100% likely to renew Wrike due to everything I mentioned, but also because Wrike is constantly improving. With new features being introduced what seems like weekly, and improvements to the UI happening all the time, Wrike is a platform that I feel will exceed my expectations for the coming years. This is a company that wants to exceed their customers expectations, and they are constantly showing it by really listening to the customers that use their software.

New users typically have a learning curve before they can fully utilize Wrike. Because it has so much functionality, naturally it takes time to learn.

E-mail ticket support. Not very fast, took an average 16-24 hrs to get a response (some time-zone issues, maybe) . Although Wrike is a SaaS, they also built some desktop tools for Outlook integration (plugin) and at the beginning we had a lot of trouble with it. Finally (after more than a month and a dozen e-mails) there was a release without the bugs that we discovered and then everithing turned in the right direction

Wrike does a great job of provide a breadth of videos for learning their program. This includes a 'getting started' sett of videos along with a collection of more in depth videos to assist more experienced users. Combined with their excellent chat support learning wrike is easy and it includes easy access to best practices.

Stick with it and resist the temptation to slack in your use of project management software.

We find Wrike to be a much more collaborative tool than Microsoft Project. When we used Microsoft Project we had to designate one super user to manage the input and creation of projects and tasks. Also not all team members were able to access Microsof Project. With Wrike all team members are now responsible for inputting and managing their own tasks. Wrike is a much more intuitive tool than Microsoft Project and the organizational structure makes it easy to group projects and deadlines.

Return on Investment

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.
