Asana

I think the best part about Asana is how we can use it seamlessly across the company within all departments and have separate spaces for each department as well. We are all remote so when we aren't able to have a standup meeting it is easy to pop in there and see where everyone is on a specific project

Wrike

Wrike is a life saver! We were using multiple spreadsheets (one with approx. 60 columns), and multiple manual reports, and were blind to what others were doing. Using blueprints, automation, request forms, reporting, and calendars, I can successfully manage over 50 projects at one time. We also keep templates, specs, and notes all in Wrike. We have even installed Wrike in our Teams and can look at tasks due. Truthfully, if you are using spreadsheets for tasks or projects, use Wrike. If you are using Microsoft Excel to analyze something and it's a one time thing, then Microsoft Excel might be a better option

Pros

Asana

  • Easy to use by any user (good UX and no installation needed)
  • Easy to create a simple project, add tasks and sub tasks.
  • Different display options, according to the project/tasks type
  • Works great using a web browser, you don't have to install the application
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

  • Wrike's options to set dependencies keep projects moving automatically without occupying the project manager's time to update each assignee that a task is ready to move forward.
  • Every member of the team has full visibility into every project in the space, allowing us to be a highly efficient, nimble team.
  • Tagging options make projects easy to find within the workspace, and we've found this helpful when assigning projects to our AGILE sprints.
  • Gantt charts quickly identify workload overload, and it helps our team to balance workloads effectively.
  • Dashboards are fully customizable for both reports and team management, which we use during our sprint planning sessions.
  • Blueprints make duplicating repeated project roadmaps lightening fast, saving time in building road maps for our project managers.
Kristen Paniagua | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Asana

  • Some users might find the user interface a bit dull and un inspired
  • We found the way to use multiple workspaces a bit confusing
  • It takes quite a bit of planning to build a well organized workspace in order not to have way too many projects and tasks all over the place
Louis Schietekat | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

  • It is a system that has allowed us to be more efficient and fluid internally, but the price is a determining factor, since it increases every year, and compared to other similar software it is at a disadvantage, but it may not be at a disadvantage in functions and results, but in price yes it is.

  • 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.

After implementing Wrike, it was immediately clear that the business could not return to a "before" state. Efficiency and collaboration improved tenfold, and the time spent on project management was fractioned. It enabled us to improve processes throughout the entire company, from sales and marketing, to design, to operations, and enabled the seamless integration of outside contractors which allowed us to scale easily to meet demand.

Usability

Asana

Asana 9.0
Based on 22 answers
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.

Wrike was difficult to learn at first. But with videos, emails on tips and tricks, I've been able to adapt. However, it's been difficult to convince other departments to use the program as it can be a bit overwhelming at first. I don't know what the solution is, other than to keep using it. Perhaps a template as a start for newbies?

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.

For the most part, Wrike works very well. Every so often, the Apple/Mac application can be slow to load. Sometimes it requires a refresh and it is working fine again. I have not figured out if it is the software or just a computer issue

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).

Wrike's customer support is top-notch! There are so many ways to get answers from Wrike - from their blog, videos online, community forum, contacting customer support. Whatever way you choose, you'll have an answer within 24 hours, often within just a few hours. I love my customer success manager because she meets with me via Zoom every quarter to show me new product updates, tips and tricks, and talk through any issues or wishes I have with the system. She then provides me with regular status updates on product suggestions I've made. It's awesome!

We initially had online training. A trainer took us through various training sessions where we learned about all of the tools Wrike provides. This alone allowed us to learn and set up the software and roll it out to our team. Later, a customer service rep stopped in for some one on one training which was extremely helpful.

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

Asana compared to Jira is certainly better in terms of user experience, since most of the people can start using it basically without having any kind of training or previous explanation, which makes it really useful not only for people already used to project management but also for people new in the matter and with a need of a tool that provides all that value in the quickest and better way
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

We use Wrike because the company had picked that before I got there. Personally, I'd probably use Trello for the simplicity but we're too deep into using Wrike to really justify a large change in PM software. Overall, it's not bad. It's competitive and requires work to hit your goals. If you are a poor communicator or don't keep up to date with your tasks, any software is going to be bad for you.

Based on our experience, Wrike is very scalable. Our only issue is that you have to by seats (licenses) in certain increments. For example, when we started using Wrike we only needed 3 seats but we could not purchase any less than 5 so we were paying for 2 extra seats that weren't being used. We still currently have an extra seat open.

Return on Investment

Asana

  • Productivity - Most of all, it allows me to be more productive and have a good sense of where I am with projects and deadlines.
  • Easy to use - I can make the most of my time to get up (and stay) up and running.
  • Project coordination - Allows me to assign tasks to my interns and communicate directly within the platform to keep the work train moving.
Kristi Porter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

  • Wrike decreased the time spend managing tasks and projects by roughly 40%, allowing me to have much more time for other projects. And, there are ways to improve efficiency even more - if we fully used them, it would save probably 60% of project management time.
