Likelihood to Recommend

Beekeeper

I highly recommend Beekeeper; it has given an incredible strength in each of the task management processes; you can get a great benefit to develop multiple activities in a given time. It is an excellent and convenient resource that allows teams to synchronize, improve information flow, and collaborate effectively.

Wrike

Wrike was a perfect tool for managing dozens of graphic design projects with separate timelines and a team of remote contributors. It enabled me to cut the time I was spending in project management in about half. The customizable project request forms are also a great way to ensure that clients are providing the necessary details when submitting requests.

Pros

Beekeeper

  • Beekeeper is ultimately the most viable option for managing tasks and getting a solid result from projects.
  • It has very extraordinary support; I can solve configuration issues.
  • It gives us significant advantages in communication and collaboration within the organization.
  • It is extraordinary to complement a system of coordination and systematization of priorities in any environment.

Wrike

  • Wrike is very flexible and versatile. I have used many project management systems, and some have rigid requirements - such as needing a completion date. Wrike is customizable, so you can create the setup that works best for you. You can create custom workflows, request forms, folders, etc. - and the changes could be for your whole account, or just for a specific team/folder.
  • Wrike allows for many ways to view projects. It has kanban boards, gantt charts, calendars, lists, tables, reports, analytics, time logs, activity streams, etc. Most other tools I have used have some of these. But, everyone has their own view that they prefer to work from. In Wrike, all the projects and tasks can be managed from almost any view. In my experience, this increased adoption and efficiency as team members were comfortable using the view.
  • In Wrike, you can save filters, which makes managing projects much faster and easier.

Cons

Beekeeper

  • The most dangerous thing for me is the price; I think you can get similar quality programs at a reasonable price.
  • The user interface is not bad, but it could be more intuitive and organized.
Maria Pulenta | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

  • If you have multiple mailboxes (i.e. - Shared mailbox) added to Outlook client, the add-in to create tasks doesn't function on the secondary mailboxes. You have to move/forward/copy the email to the primary mailbox in order to use the add-in.
  • There were frequent software updates (for desktop client) which meant we were constantly uninstalling the old client and installing the new client. Doing this meant that you have to "re-pin" the shortcut to your taskbar again (if you pinned previously).
  • I am not sure if Wrike is "intended" to be a Ticketing system for ITSM, but it works much better as a Project Management system rather than as a Ticketing system.

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

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

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

Beekeeper

Beekeeper has been able to bring us considerable advantages in terms of communication and collaboration within our organization. It is a fantastic tool that allows us to communicate with colleagues.
Maria Pulenta | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

While Trello is best used for teams who desire more of an overview in project management, Wrike offers the deep dive. Trello is also more visual, but as a result, lacks in the level of detail that Wrike offers, and therefore, does not deplete the same level of project anxiety. As for Asana comparison, Wrike's framework allows for a greater level of detail and project management than does Asana. Asana does not offer the ability to nest projects, tasks and folders at the same level as Wrike and therefore, it can be difficult to simply find a project when needed.

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

Beekeeper

  • I love being able to count on Beekeeper; it has all the communication capabilities so practical and easy to integrate with other tools.
  • The ROI is swift and complete.
Maria Pulenta | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

  • I was able to use time-tracking and project reporting in Wrike, combined with data from our Marketing automation system, to measurably demonstrate the business impact our Creative Team was having on our Marketing goals.
  • That business impact project successfully made the case that hiring a new designer was a higher priority than other potential open positions at the time.
  • While it is sometimes difficult not having a dedicated project manager, Wrike has made it possible for our team to not fill that position for several years when we absolutely would have needed one with previous systems.
