Creately sells itself as software specializing in a wide variety of areas, which is true in some cases. Visualizing and creating marketing processes, research, user flows, and general flowcharts is an extremely powerful tool. However, in other areas, such as Human Resources, UI/UX prototyping, and Wireframe design, it leaves a little to be desired compared to the competition.

Two specific features that make Wrike a good fit for my department (which oversees our organization's print media) are blueprints and "add version." Blueprints save and recreate details like tasks, length for each task, assignee, etc. so they will automatically repopulate when creating a new project. We use blueprints for recurring projects like our monthly newsletter. All we need to do is enter the new end date and new title for the newsletter; Wrike automatically reschedules the individual tasks and notifies the assignees. With the "add version" feature, we can keep track of all the versions of a given document while clearly seeing which is the most recent. It helps keep our editing process orderly.
Read full review Pros Helps to create wonderful charts. Helps co-worker to work on a similar project. It allows importing multiple templates. Read full review Users enter their art and communications requests through forms previously created by my department so that we can work on them in the order they are received. I manage large projects in Wrike where I can receive real-time feedback on each individual project without losing track, as in an email. At the end of the year, I love that I can find out how many tasks I completed, how many were closed, how many were canceled, etc. What I like the most is that it allows me to keep a real-time track of time for each project. This motivates me to be more organized with my work. It also allows me to collaborate with other team members in separate spaces based on project types, where everyone can contribute. I also assign tasks to the person who is assisting me as an intern. Read full review Cons Can add more tutorials to guide the users in the tool Tools lags sometimes when a diagram with lot of data is loaded It also gets stuck sometime when an Undo functionality is used Read full review Request forms could use a custom numbered prefix feature automatically keeping count and adding the next number in the line for each task created via a specific form. A Mass "find and replace" feature for task titles would help when needing to rename existing tasks titles. Ability to add in a request from to be completed inside another request from. Blueprint feature where options can be specified inside a blueprint and when "create from" is selected, these options are available to select which determines the blueprint structure created. Add an "effort" input into request forms, automatically adding the entered effort into the task's effort tab. Currently, you have to manually go and fill that in, which is not viable for a mass amount of tasks getting created daily. 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
Read full review Usability
Wrike was pretty straightforward to use once you got logged in and got a crash course on how to use it. Once I was able to get my own dashboard set up for all my different tasks/tickets/projects, I was able to go to one place for all my incoming work. If I ever had any questions, my co-worker who implemented Wrike for us either already knew the answer or would find the answer for us. I had email notifications set up for any new tickets as well, but sometimes my dashboard would get updated before I got my email. Either way, I was able to keep track of what needed to get done and knew what was the most pressing ticket to get done
Read full review Reliability and Availability
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.

Read full review In-Person Training
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 love the Wrike training options. Wrike Discover has tons of courses, learning plans, certifications, etc. This is an area where Wrike definitely shines! I wish these resources were more in your face for new people, because it seems like a lot of coworkers didn't know all of this training was available to them.

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
