Citrix

[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

Wrike is great! One piece that is really nice is the ability to customize the views - so if you have team members who want to see a spreadsheet of tasks (like Smartsheet), or someone who just wants a basic list (like Asana), or wants a Gantt chart, or kanban board (like Trello), or if they want to prioritize by dragging (like Jira) - Wrike does all of this. I don't think Wrike is as suited for dev teams as Jira, or if all your entire team wants is just a list of tasks. But for anything else, I would say Wrike is one of the best, if not the best, options.

Pros

Citrix

  • 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

  • Task assigning to colleagues
  • Good overview about resources and resource management
  • All projects and tasks in one place - good overview for upper management and portfolio management
  • With a self-set-up workflow for tasks and projects, Wrike can be configured very well to the company processes

Cons

Citrix

  • 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)

Wrike

  • Navigating through the system with new features is awful. If you happen to miss the hundreds of updates, then you are at a loss for how to perform routine tasks.
  • Signed up for the course for Silver Certification and still is a nightmare to navigate- it messed up my login credentials, and I'm still not able to access the course.

    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

    Wrike has been a perfect tool for us. We love every aspect of it. The product, the support, and the community are great! We actually are renewing this month and look forward to many, many years ahead. Wrike provides updates every week. There are improvements and new enhancements all the time. Just when you didn't think it could be better, a new enhancement is added!

    Wrike

    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?

    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.

    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

    Support Rating

    Citrix

    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.

    Wrike

    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!

    Wrike

    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.

    Wrike

    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

    Citrix

    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).

    Asana seemed pretty comparable to Wrike, and the decision ultimately came down to pricing. On the other hand, Monday has been something our team has been considering for a while, which would also be a cut in cost and significantly more simple (geared toward smaller teams). We're currently still using Wrike since we're in a year-long contract and because we now have a lot of internal infrastructure in Wrike.

    Scalability

    Wrike

    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

    Citrix

    • 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.

    Wrike

    • Wrike has good reporting tools that let team leaders see at a glance what everyone on the team is working on and what the status of the project is.
    • The interactive Gantt chart is one of Wrike's best features. It has dynamic timelines that show an overview of the project's progress, including the full work scope and any dependencies. It also has a critical path analysis, can work on more than one project at once, and can import files from MS Project.
    • Two-factor authentication is a very important tool for online safety.
