Asana

Asana is great for organization across a team or across a project since its UI is much better and easier to use than more complicated project planning interfaces and project management software. It’s less well suited to manage projects across an organization since it doesn’t handle budgets or integrate with things like Microsoft project as well so it’s strength are more towards project vs portfolio management.

Wrike

I have nothing good to say about this platform. [I believe] it turns one into a slave to Wrike, rather than Wrike being a slave to the team's work. We tried very hard to get the platform to work for us, and the more we did so, the less we believed in it. [...]

Pros

Asana

  • Task Management - Being able to assign resources and time lines to specific activities
  • Project Management - Being able to plan, execute and track project process using this tool
  • Customizability - Being able to customize a solution that meets your needs or activity.

Wrike

  • Wrike is a robust tool - so it can be tailored to suit your team's need.
  • Wrike's customer service is topnotch! Their team responds within 24 hours and is always excited to teach me new and more efficient ways to benefit my team.
  • Wrike is constantly innovating. Their product team really does take customer feedback into account and rolls out updated tools with quick instructions for immediate use.
  • Wrike's Blueprints are my absolute favorite! I have been able to simplify so many workflows and projects by identifying and documenting repeatable sequences of tasks, saving me mental load and sleep! I love not waking up in the middle of the night because I forgot a task!
  • Wrike's Dashboards are a game-changer. I don't have to hunt through folders and projects to figure out what is expected of me from day to day - my dashboard tells me everything I need! Recently, I project managed the O'Keeffe's reopening to the public after closing due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. My Reopening Dashboard gave me a quick status check on the many tasks the O'Keeffe's COVID-19 Taskforce was working on to get the Museum back open.

Cons

Asana

  • I think there could be improved clarity around the different levels of Asana. For example, the resources available to paid accounts are not visible from the more basic accounts, so you're not aware that there are expanded options until you look in their knowledge base and see that they have additional features.
  • Exporting projects - you can export a project into a csv, but it isn't pretty. This can be challenging if you'd like to have an archived project folder for open records requests.

Wrike

  • Task prioritization. While there is currently a "high importance" option, there should be levels of priority including High, Medium, and low level priorities.
  • More customizable features including backgrounds, etc.
  • Ability to add an email address that is a shared group as opposed to limiting to just one person.

  • Mobile + Desktop capabilities - Able to use it anywhere, anytime.
  • Task management - Easy to view projects and their progress.
  • Time management - Easy to see what elements require time / how they interrelate and manage the project on an overall basis.
  • Company management - Be able to see from a master dashboard perspective where each project is in its stages of completion.
  • Clear communication - It's visually documented who is doing what at what time so that the whole project gets done.

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

Usability

It is very user-friendly. Takes a new employee an hour to start figuring out how the system works. That's an important factor. You don't want to encounter the issue where employees need a week to understand how the system works. For example, JIRA, I tried using it for a week and I still don't understand the complicated layout. Asana has a simple interface. Once you see it, you get it type of program.

While Wrike is very helpful for organizing big clients' tasks among different projects and folders, sometimes it may not be so intuitive if you don't already know how a task or folder is called, so it may feel kind of tedious unless you use the search bar and try to guess some keywords related to certain tasks. Maybe a more visual-oriented and simpler structure would help.

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.

I haven't had to use their support so I can't rate it. The fact that I haven't needed them reflects the ease of use of the product. I would recommend that any new users schedule a complete demo of the product to ensure that they are using it to it's fullest (there's a lot of useful features).

With frequent updates and new features, Wrike's support team seems to work very diligently on providing constant support to the platform. I appreciate the sunsetting of older features to give our team time to prepare for moving over to new features in lieu of losing the support of older, less efficient features. For example, Personal Spaces was an excellent addition to an already feature-rich "My To-Dos" and "Inbox". Being able to link project/department specific tasks into Personal Spaces has increased my own workflow productivity and efficiency quite a bit.

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.

I think it's really about developing a relationship with your Wrike partners, in tandem with your key stakeholders. Once everyone is on the same page, it makes implementation easier. Also, make sure you put a LOT of thought into your Wrike Knowledgebase, clearly plan how you are going to support your users with the key information and answers they will ask

Alternatives Considered

Asana

I like Nifty as this has time sheets, however we preferred the clean interface of Asana. Nifty was a bit overwhelming when we tried it. Their app on Android wasn't anywhere near as mature as Asana's app.Plutio is great and has many features, but we preferred the look of Asana.

Wrike

We switched from Asana in 2014 to Workfront because, at the time Asana had a wonderfully simple user experience, but lacked in-depth reporting and dynamic project templates.
We abandoned Workfront in favor or Wrike after 18 months of difficulty trying to get the system to be as easy and transparent as it had been demo'd to us. Workfront seemed to be a clear case of a great rebrand (from AtTask) and marketing that didn't accurately reflect the complex, outdated product at all. My understanding is that Workfront has addressed many of those issues, but we couldn't wait around for those fixes.
During those other transitions, we had also sporadically used Trello and Google apps for projects and collaboration, but neither had everything we needed for true project management.
