It is so well suited for a cloud based DAM. It's loads so fast, works well in every browser. With remote work now it is so easily for our team to upload, organize, share, and view analytics on our assets. The best feature is the templating system which allows your designers to take what they design in Adobe Indesign and denote which areas are editable and it keeps the formatting, style, and fonts to the end user. The only other options on the market would require the designer to rebuild the design on a separate platform like Canvas. I wish the platform did more to help with handling videos. It doesn't display the runtime on a video, the specs, or play captions inline with the video. I also wish it would do media pushing to social media platforms.

Wrike is well suited to manage projects related to design, marketing management or web development. It is well suited to work with different teams as it has an organized interface to identify the stakeholders of the project. It would not be so appropriate to handle things related to sales but for that, there are CRM programs.

To get advanced reports, you need to pay a higher subscription. It would be useful to have some more reports. Native Integrations are few, and the associated software to activate many of them is expensive and very difficult. I'd love some WYSWYG integration. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Wrike is a valued system which allows us to reduce the amount of manual work being done across the business. It has transformed the way we set and manage tasks and is now making us super efficient and productivity has increased. We have a contract in place but I can definitely see us renewing when that is up

Wrike is very easy to use -- as noted in other questions -- ease of is is always a top criteria for my software selection. Wrike is intuitive and is accessible on both a browser and on mobile, and the mobile experience is better than other tools I have used.

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
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
Read full review Support Rating
The support from Wrike's engineers, customer service, and sales rep is fantastic. Questions are answered, problems are resolved, and feedback is greatly valued. Any feedback given is translated to the engineers and has been used to upgrade the system. There is never any push back or excuses. They offer solutions which is fantastic! My only complaint is sometimes it takes a bit of time and back and forth to have questions/issues resolved

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.

I found the pace and ease of the training to be welcoming and effective. I was able to move at my own speed and identify areas of need. This along with the ability to actually utilize provided training accounts made me feel far more willing to learn and grow through trial and error.
Read full review Implementation Rating
Unfortunately, the implementation of Wrike was the reason why it didn't succeed at our company (we will likely be switching services midyear). It was originally slated to be a company-wide adoption but was immediately more useful to our creative team than our sales, engineering, or other project-based teams. Perhaps it was the fact that it seemed like processes outside of the average marketing team project needed custom workflows built, and we didn't have a dedicated employee who was implementing the system. In fact, now that I'm thinking about it more, that was a serious oversight: no dedicated, project-manager-like employee was heading the charge of rollout. Instead, the implementation was a bit of a wild-west, individual affair, so the marketing team ended up primarily using the software.

Brandfolder has the best UI/UX for the end user and the administrator. The UI/UX is modern and not just a recreation of a folder system like old OS file systems. Brandfolder is so visual based and loads so quickly that makes it easy for users to find their assets quickly. The templating is totally unique when compared to other options on the market. The tagging system, duplicate detection, collections, and stacking files into an asset makes the platform efficient to manage and use

Ultimately, the choice between Wrike and
will depend on the specific needs and requirements of your organization. If you are looking for a more comprehensive project management tool that includes features for team collaboration and integrations with other tools, Wrike might be the better fit. On the other hand, if you are primarily focused on project and resource planning, and are in the creative or marketing industry,
might be the better choice.

Wrike delivers on scalability and being able to use the platform across multiple departments and locations. With remote work becoming more popularized over the past few years, Wrike has made the transition easier. It has allowed our remote teams to complete projects almost as if they were together in person.
