[Citrix Podios's] customer support is very quick and they provide you an option to convert your
project into small tasks so that you can better assist your team and extract
maximum work out of them hence I will totally recommend its usage. I could not think that keeping track of tasks could be this much easier and smart. It is a fully customizable tool that manages my tasks efficiently and deal with them effectively.

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

Podio

  • Very easy for people without coding or technical skills to set up and maintain information in "Apps".
  • Platform is very easy to learn and adopt--it's intuitive.
  • Project management potential is awesome--instead of having to fit your projects into a structure that is industry specific, you can build an app that tracks what you want, in the order you want it.
  • Has a "relationship" field that allows you to relate an individual item or record to a record in another app. It effectively gives some of the functionality of a relational database.
  • Very useful for information sharing when staff members are in different regions or places.

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

Podio

  • More filter options for calendars.
  • Customizable views for Relation fields.
  • Full featured Podio mobile App for iPad.
  • A customizable profile status – would love to work with Podio in silent mode (logged in while working, but "not available" for requests when in heavy work mode)
Jan Florian Maas | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Podio customer service is great. The cloud and mobile service is fast (almost instant, continuous syncing). With a solid user base, and backed by Citrix, this is a serious business solution. They're also constantly working on improving and making it more powerful. I anticipate it only getting better

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

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.

Podio support was always responsive and very quick to provide answers and assistance during the history of using this product, their support team has always been top notch. There have been several cases where calling podio support a feature was not available and they provided either workaround solutions or added the features straight into their roadmap.

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

Podio

Compared to Salesforce: Podio is not as robust as a tool for CRM tracking. It also doesn't have the in-email capabilities that SF offers. Compared to Basecamp: Podio is somewhat similar to Basecamp but doesn't offer the same functionality with checking items off and archiving projects.Compared to Zoho Projects: Podio is vastly superior to Zoho Project's lack of flexibility (requiring a development team to build) and accessibility by all members (Zoho Projects requires a very limited number of "owners" of projects which makes it difficult if multiple owners need to assign one or more people to a project).

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.

Return on Investment

Podio

  • Podio is great for task assignment and tracking. The ability to enter and assign tasks from mobile and track their completion saves me several phone calls a day.
  • Podio outdoes email as my go to place to search for information. The ability to forward emails into the system, organize by projects and contacts, and search it all saves considerable time and confusion.
  • Podio has considerable potential to reduce overall admin time spent organizing information (filing, tracking, etc) The ability to keep a single record of a given piece of information without being tied to email vs file structure works very well.
Keller Baum | TrustRadius Reviewer

Wrike

  • Wrike has enabled our team to become better at prioritizing our tasks, by controlling what enters our task lists. Using forms to create tasks helped us to do this.
  • It has also made tracking the work done by our team much easier, saving time for our team manager.
