Wrike
Chose Wrike
Better is not strong enough. It's okay since Confluence is more detailed and allows much more in terms of documentation and hierarchy, etc. But it is also not very convenient in terms of efficiency and usage. Wrike means simplicity and easy-going adaptation for all. You don't …
Chose Wrike
We are currently using all of these products. Each of them does some things really well.
Confluence is great for documentation on functionality that isn't changed frequently or to define how a business unit captures metrics.
GitHub is good for source control, but we use Wrike to …
Chose Wrike
Wrike is waaaay better in my opinion than Jira - from the easier to use UI, the cleaner breakout of projects, to the way that tickets are created, it is all so much better. Specifically, the left to right flow from project through tickets is just way easier to view and consume. …
Chose Wrike
Trello is too simplistic for the scope of the projects we manage, whereas Jira and Confluence are too confusing with too steep a learning curve. Wrike, by comparison, is as simple or as complex as you make of it and intuitive enough that no real instruction is needed on how to …
Chose Wrike
Wrike offers way more tools within the platform than Jira
Chose Wrike
Wrike is an inbetweener for me, with Trello being a basic entry level platform, but it is free.. which is great to use. Where Jira is a complex platform to use, well laid out for bigger company basses... but quite costly. I do wish that Wrike had more of a sprint task basis …
Chose Wrike
Better than Trello (more flexible), loses out to Jira from an IT project perspective but more user-friendly for the wider company
Chose Wrike
At my company, we use both Jira and Wrike. Jira is used more for task management and communication between designers, developers, QA, and product owners, and Wrike (at our company) is used more for request submission to specific teams.
Chose Wrike
Even though we had fully licenced Microsoft Project along with other products. we we looking for other products for project planning me and other few team members had already used Wrike in our previous jobs and were really impressed with ease of working which Wrike offered. …
Chose Wrike
Jira does not have project planning and project management abilities as Wrike have. Jira is very agile oriented and not suited for waterfall project plans. Jira has no gantt view.
Chose Wrike
Wrike overall is more user friendly, is built for agile teams, has more learning resources and tutorials, and offers in screen tips and guidance that helps new users get up to speed quickly. Intaking, tracking and collaborating on internal projects are some of the key needs …
Chose Wrike
I never really enjoyed Asana, so once i learned how to use Wrike, I'm not sure I'd ever want to switch back.
Chose Wrike
Wrike can do everything that these tools can do, but not as well. Needs to be more user friendly and need to be able to capture more data in an easier way that allows for consistent and easy reporting.
Chose Wrike
Wrike is specifically designed for project management, so it is a much easier flow and better user interfaces for this expressed purpose. My project managers really like the automated Gantt charts, whereas they are less useful to me, but it is still much easier to visualize …
Chose Wrike
They all are fairly similar. I did not select Wrike as an option, our agency partner did and I can't say that I like or dislike it over the others.
Chose Wrike
Wrike makes it simple to work with and generate reports instantly. It really save my team time. Having to keep track of workload/capacity was done manually. Wrike incorporates time tracking in their daily tasks.
Chose 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 …
Chose Wrike
We chose Wrike over competitors as a team, as we felt the capabilities and interface best met our needs. Wrike allows us to customize requests and processes so that we are able to tailor to the needs of different departments and projects. The interface is clean, and they have a …
Chose Wrike
Here is why we went with Wrike over other tools:
  • Workfront - Wrike was a better price point at our usage level. It is more flexible and could be customized around our type of work. It is also faster to use
  • Asana - Wrike is much more robust in my opinion. Asset management, …
Chose Wrike
Wrike involves the wellness of both softwares, cheap and easier to use, Clarizen its much more expensive than wrike, and Smartsheet its just for small projects with a little descrption tasks, and the task assignation its no so easy as in wrike, in Wrike you can extend the task …
Chose Wrike
Asana is more like a very configurable super fast and easy to use spreadsheet. Wrike has more features, more options but is more for big teams. Asana is for more mature teams that do not communicate externally that much. Jira is just a software lifecycle development tool and …
Chose Wrike
We evaluated Wrike through a 3+ vendor RFP process. We ultimately chose Wrike based on our previous experience with the platform and its ability to build through project layers, track approvals, review, mark-up, and version control, as well as provide a coherent to-do list for …

It has a comment option on the page, where you can tag other teammates tagging them. it sends the mail notification. Comment at the page end is pretty good for referring to other stakeholders and future references of the topic on the page. Creating the highlights of the discussions, and meeting held points with highlighted tagging. Easy shortcuts such as to add a date just type "//". The interface is cool and has easy shortcuts for quick page making.

My organization used Google Sheets to work with subbies, but we've since switched to Wrike. It is user friendly, has formulas and customizable fields. Wrike has been a lifesaver because instead of sharing Google Sheets with external customers and typically they messing up - deleting formulas, users can simply fill out a request form without logging into Wrike . All details are displayed in a table view, making management much easier.

Pros
Atlassian
  • QUICK How-to Guides that can be generated and share instantly
  • One can subscribe to the pages and spaces and receive updates in the feed on their home page
  • Automatic Email notifications of new updates in the Confluence area
  • The platform integrates easily with other Atlassian platforms including third-party apps thus improving its reliability

Wrike
  • Wrike has been consistent in emailing any updates or changes to each person involved in each task.
  • Wrike has a simple to navigate website, with quick access to each task.
  • Wrike keeps all data files located at the top of the task for quick reference, which makes it easier for each team member to find.
  • Wrike adds date tags as well as any edited or deleted notes where we are able to cross-reference any major changes that may have been made.

Cons
Atlassian
  • Navigation. Similar to other Atlassian products, users have complained that aspects of Confluence are difficult to learn right away[.]
  • An issue that users can face when using Confluence is attempting to edit a document while someone else is editing. Although users can access the document and save it, they are unable to see the changes happening in [real-time] that other users are implementing until they refresh their page. Some users have also noted that this can result in loss of edits.
  • Another drawback of using Confluence is its specific organizational structure. All information is stored within one page or project, although the page is able to be broken up into sections, some users do not prefer this style. Users can use the ‘page tree’ on each page to organize the different elements of each project.

Wrike
  • The email notifications that are automatically sent from Wrike when something is done are easy for users to miss or ignore.
  • Reporting can be limited. You have to create workarounds for collecting/storing the name of the person submitting the form in instances where they do not have their own Wrike license.
  • A more user-friendly interface, especially for those less familiar with project management software, would enhance overall accessibility.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

I wish that Wrike had more drag and drop functionality that would be connected to assignee and also I wish that the finish date of a task would update to the date where you checked completed. It does not do that. Also finishing a task doesn't move the start date of the next task it "protects your time in that way", but our management team wants us to quickly see what we have down the pipeline rather than having to scroll down the list of upcoming tasks.

Usability
Atlassian
Confluence can - and in my personal opinion, it will - be a bit hard to use in the first moment. Atlassian is a great company and is eager to help you with any question you have, though. The interface seems to be a bit clumsy at first but the customization options are enough to make it easier and simpler. In general, Confluence is easy to use when you understand what each section does, but this can take a while.

Wrike, overall, is pretty easy to setup and use. I still find challenges in changing milestone dates but our programs / date changes are different than industry standard so that is partly the issue. We love the Excel look along with the dashboards! There are also built in analytics that really assist in seeing where the projects are!

Reliability and Availability
Atlassian

Wrike
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.

Performance
Atlassian
Pages load very quickly, which makes it useful for quickly obtaining information. The search functionality is also very quick and is able to parse through all of the documents to provide the most relevant results for the query. Other information based software gets bogged down, but so far Atlassian Confluence maintains its performance.

Wrike tasks loads fine, but I hate clicking files and wait for a bit of time since it is powerpoint or word, Wrike assumes I want to open those on Wrike. My suggestion is to link it to office 365 so we do not need Wrike based decoder for PPTX and DOCX

Support Rating
Atlassian
This rating is specifically for Atlassian's self-help documentation on their website. Often times, it is not robust enough to cover a complex usage of one of their features. Frequently, you can find an answer on the web, but not from Atlassian. Instead, it is usually at a power user group elsewhere on the net.

Support is very quickly and they want to solve problems actively. When I need additional info I can use community forum, when I've an issue I can use support form to get help. The support is of excellent quality from the first level, to grow when you talk to the engineers it becomes even more important

There are a lot of bells and whistles in Wrike, and not all of it is easy or intuitive to understand once it's plopped in your lap. It's easier when there are a few choice people who understand Wrike as a platform and articulate it in such a way where it makes it easy to pass it along to others in the group

Alternatives Considered

We used to use Google Drive to store all of our documentation, but it is disconnected from our every day working environment and it was easy to lose documents and become disorganized within the broad drive environment. [Atlassian] Confluence has kept us more organized and its tight coupling with Jira has made documents more accessible and more likely to be kept up to date.

I have not used other products except Microsoft Teams channels with file sharing and standard sharing from Adobe, text and email messaging, and Zoom/gotomeeting sharing. This is the first product that I have used that had the functionality and platform where the sharing is simplistic. It is better than standard sharing through email or other simple forms because everything stays together.

The sky is the limit for what can be done in Wrike. We started with 1 use case and within 5 months we migrated several key business practices over to Wrike because they were easier to manage. Use cases so far: process improvement, management review, corrective actions, maintenance requests, month-end financial closing, and document management. As we grow, it's easy to imagine putting even more into Wrike where it becomes a cornerstone for how we do business

Return on Investment
Atlassian
  • We've gone from folders and folders of Word documents and PDFs into a single system with a search feature to bring all of our data together and trackable
  • While onboarding took a bit longer for the company (to switch from a Word document centric mindset - to a web-based one), overall the company has embraced the features and power of Confluence within the working stack
  • However, as costs continue to climb for the Atlassian product, we are forced to continue our evaluation of the product - with replacing it a remote possibility if it begins to outprice its usefulness to us.

  • Adding versions of a document streamlines our editing process, preventing us from reviewing outdated versions of a document. This feature saves time, especially when working with external contributors who may not know Wrike well.
  • Blueprints save time because we do not have to manually enter all the details when scheduling a recurring project.
