Wrike

Wrike is great for a simple solution for tracking your projects. Its benefit to my team is the ease of use and implementation, especially for those that have never used any type of project management solutions. I can quickly follow up and report on statuses without disrupting workflow and ensure the feedback I need to give is inserted into the system directly where it is noticed by them and can be acted upon.

Pros

  • Great user experience and minimal learning curve. It wasn't until I became aware of Airtable that we found a solution that allows us to implement the best features of a collaborative RDBMS with our staff who don't have any training. I had previously used Zoho Creator and found that it was difficult to onboard new users because of a steeper learning curve.
  • Easy to share views and invite contributions via forms.
  • Blocks add significant functionality that would be hard to custom build.

  • Wrike's dashboard is an integral part of my day. Their dashboard is fully customizable and allows you to see tasks that you have due in the coming days/weeks as well as tasks that you have assigned to other team members and what their status is.
  • The chat and comment features in Wrike have allowed our team to move away from email as our main form of communication. Gone are the days of a cluttered inbox.
  • The file versioning feature is really useful when dealing with edits and multiple copies of the same document. Before Wrike we would often be working on multiple versions of the same document and combining edits and comments was always a pain.

Cons

  • I think this thing has huge potential for us to manage our photos. We take over 10,000 photos a year and Airtable has the capability of easily loading, tagging and sorting them. It even has history and you could store edited versions of each photo within each original photo's profile. However - the ability to view these photos as thumbnails of different sizes, gallery style, is very limited. So that's a big additional feature I'd like to see, some optimization to use this as a photo management system.
  • If you include numbers into a table, automagically from another table via the rollup or lookup features, then you cannot use those numbers as part of a formula in a subsequent field. This turned out to be a major limiting factor on my using it as a budget manager. (Luckily I came up with a workaround but it makes me add additional columns to the table that add a bit of otherwise unnecessary clutter.)

  • Does not have a clock-in clock-out function
  • Doesn't have great Gantt charting software
  • Pricing model is expensive

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.

Sometimes, I have to wait a bit longer but I'm on a low priced option so I understand why. Generally, they're able to provide me solutions to my problems as long as I'm not in a rush.

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

I have mostly set up and helped architect custom database solutions in a proprietary software, as compares directly to Airtable. I have set up and used JIRA Software extensively, and several Marketing Automation systems, and set up Oncontact CRM, and used DAM systems, and Basecamp project management. All in all setting up databases and introducing them to organizations is one of my primary skills and I have several years experience doing this within an organization and as a consultant for other organizations. This is why I love Airtable so much - I have never seen something so lightweight, so inexpensive, and so powerful. Pound for pound it whips any system I have ever used. When I think back to all the custom database solutions I've implemented, and other processes I've managed and consulted on within organizations, I can't help but wonder how many of them would have vastly better off with a simple Airtable implementation.

Basecamp was not intuitive and did not make collaborating easy. It is a breeze with Wrike.

Return on Investment

  • Airtable has made a positive impact on our organization by creating one app that allows us to do the vast majority of our work tracking and planning, in a fun and user friendly way.
  • I previously used other task trackers and could not get employees to keep them up-to-date. Something about the visuals of airtable, the micro movements, etc... that my team loves!
