Accelo

It is really well suited for organizations that need to have a lot of tools but don't want a bunch of data silos. Our organization uses HubSpot as our CRM so we don't necessarily use the CRM portion of Accelo the way it is designed. Mainly because it isn't as agile as HubSpot from a CRM perspective.

Wrike

I've tried other project management and collaboration tools but Wrike is it for me. I have no project management certifications but I am technically savvy. Some PM tools were overkill for my needs but Wrike easily did what I wanted it to do: schedule multiple marketing channel activities and assign tasks related to getting them out. For example, we had direct mail campaigns, email blasts, social media posts and industry specific ads that went on throughout the year. I was able to schedule everything and generate monthly and quarterly schedules for senior management so they knew what we were doing in advance. I assigned tasks to graphic designers and others on the team related to each project. In terms of more traditional project management, Wrike can do that too. Gantt charts, scheduling resources, dependencies, time management, etc. It is awesome for web design projects.

  • 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.

  • Sometimes buggy when clicking through tool bars (not typical though)
  • Lose tracking of time if you switch to free version

Wrike is a free resource for us currently, we moved off the subscription as the team had some adjustments. If we were to go back to a paid model or require more time reporting I'd have to look at alternatives such as Podio. I am the sole manager of Wrike currently internally, and would like to get more people on board to justify the cost

Over two years of (almost) daily usage without outages. Don't remember any errors. I give it 9 only because some Wrike plugins (for online document edit) are based on NPAPI architecture. These types of plugins are being phased out in new browsers, and NPAPI plugins are disabled by default in recent versions of Chrome so you have to do some browser adjustments when you switch browsers or move to another computer.

Their support was done mainly through email and depending on their work lord, could take longer to get a response. But the response was still within a reasonable time frame and courteous every time.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Accelo doesn't really exceed any competitors in any one area of their product, but in 2015 when we made the move this was the best option that included all the tools we wanted. However, user adoption was low in some areas due to the UI, so we scaled back Accelo and added other tools.

Comparing Wrike to Asana- at the time, Asana was very new to the task-type software and did not have a lot of the features that it has today. Wrike has offers more flexibility and better integration with other programs. Wrike is not as robust as Salesforce and Central Desktop's SocialBridge but then they both come at a much high price point. Both of those software programs were more than what we needed. Wrike was a great blend of price and features for the small mobile team that we had.

Return on Investment

  • Allows our growing team to have more client information and context accessible during client interactions.

  • In the first place I used to consider Wrike as a rookie team assistant (for much less money in a month :D)- for accounting assigned people and time spent on projects.
  • After no more than three months we noticed real progress toward our initial goal: less delayed tasks and more control in due dates estimates ( which pleased the stakeholders).
