Chose Jira Align
Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft) is formatted in a way that's conducive to software development and Agile methodology. These other programs have their own, different uses in tracking, and are typically clunkier than Atlassian Jira Align (formerly AgileCraft).
Wrike
Chose Wrike
Wrike offers way more tools within the platform than Jira
Chose Wrike
Wrike is an inbetweener for me, with Trello being a basic entry level platform, but it is free.. which is great to use. Where Jira is a complex platform to use, well laid out for bigger company basses... but quite costly. I do wish that Wrike had more of a sprint task basis …
Chose Wrike
Trello is too simplistic for the scope of the projects we manage, whereas Jira and Confluence are too confusing with too steep a learning curve. Wrike, by comparison, is as simple or as complex as you make of it and intuitive enough that no real instruction is needed on how to …
Chose Wrike
At my company, we use both Jira and Wrike. Jira is used more for task management and communication between designers, developers, QA, and product owners, and Wrike (at our company) is used more for request submission to specific teams.
Chose Wrike
Even though we had fully licenced Microsoft Project along with other products. we we looking for other products for project planning me and other few team members had already used Wrike in our previous jobs and were really impressed with ease of working which Wrike offered. …
Chose Wrike
Jira does not have project planning and project management abilities as Wrike have. Jira is very agile oriented and not suited for waterfall project plans. Jira has no gantt view.
Chose Wrike
Wrike is waaaay better in my opinion than Jira - from the easier to use UI, the cleaner breakout of projects, to the way that tickets are created, it is all so much better. Specifically, the left to right flow from project through tickets is just way easier to view and consume. …
Chose Wrike
Wrike can do everything that these tools can do, but not as well. Needs to be more user friendly and need to be able to capture more data in an easier way that allows for consistent and easy reporting.
Chose Wrike
Wrike is specifically designed for project management, so it is a much easier flow and better user interfaces for this expressed purpose. My project managers really like the automated Gantt charts, whereas they are less useful to me, but it is still much easier to visualize …
Chose Wrike
They all are fairly similar. I did not select Wrike as an option, our agency partner did and I can't say that I like or dislike it over the others.
Chose Wrike
We chose Wrike over competitors as a team, as we felt the capabilities and interface best met our needs. Wrike allows us to customize requests and processes so that we are able to tailor to the needs of different departments and projects. The interface is clean, and they have a …
Chose Wrike
Here is why we went with Wrike over other tools:
  • Workfront - Wrike was a better price point at our usage level. It is more flexible and could be customized around our type of work. It is also faster to use
  • Asana - Wrike is much more robust in my opinion. Asset management, …
Chose Wrike
Wrike involves the wellness of both softwares, cheap and easier to use, Clarizen its much more expensive than wrike, and Smartsheet its just for small projects with a little descrption tasks, and the task assignation its no so easy as in wrike, in Wrike you can extend the task …
Chose Wrike
Asana is more like a very configurable super fast and easy to use spreadsheet. Wrike has more features, more options but is more for big teams. Asana is for more mature teams that do not communicate externally that much. Jira is just a software lifecycle development tool and …
Chose Wrike
We evaluated Wrike through a 3+ vendor RFP process. We ultimately chose Wrike based on our previous experience with the platform and its ability to build through project layers, track approvals, review, mark-up, and version control, as well as provide a coherent to-do list for …

My organization used Google Sheets to work with subbies, but we've since switched to Wrike. It is user friendly, has formulas and customizable fields. Wrike has been a lifesaver because instead of sharing Google Sheets with external customers and typically they messing up - deleting formulas, users can simply fill out a request form without logging into Wrike . All details are displayed in a table view, making management much easier.

Pros
Atlassian
  • Effective Sprint planning : Sprint planning can be done using Planning Poker in AgileCraft by clicking Team > Manage > Other > Estimation Games very effectively for distributed teams.
  • Team Capacity Allocation Report: After tasks are created at team or program level, the report from AgileCraft cab be pulled and can be verified that no team member is under or over allocated. A report can be generated by navigating to Team > Manage > Assign Tasks.
  • Effective Requirement trace-ability: To maintain requirements trace-ability follow the steps below:
  • Upload test cases against the story/requirement. once uploaded test cases will be visible under that story
  • Execute Test cases in AgileCraft and mark them as Pass/Fail based on the actual outcome
  • Based on test results, The acceptance criterion's can be marked as “Pass” or “Fail” & if marked failed corresponding defect can be logged & can be attached with the story
  • So against each story we can easily see whether all test cases been executed or not & which acceptance criterion's are failed & how many defects are in open or close state.
  • Daily Scrum: In AgileCraft, the option to run a daily stand-up is available from Team > Manage > Daily Standups. Selecting the sprint number opens the daily stand-up meeting window in which each team member's tasks are visible and hours can be burned against them. Conduct Scrum meetings in AgileCraft, and burn each associate hour against the tasks created during the meeting. The burn-down chart can be generated & viewed during the stand-up to check whether the team is on track.

  • Wrike has been consistent in emailing any updates or changes to each person involved in each task.
  • Wrike has a simple to navigate website, with quick access to each task.
  • Wrike keeps all data files located at the top of the task for quick reference, which makes it easier for each team member to find.
  • Wrike adds date tags as well as any edited or deleted notes where we are able to cross-reference any major changes that may have been made.

Cons
Atlassian
  • The initial ticket creation screen lacks some important features, such as assigning "point values" (a measure of effort needed for the ticket).
  • The browser needs to be manually refreshed to see new tickets, which can make things confusing when several people in a meeting are simultaneously creating tickets.
  • The interface on some smaller portions of the software are sometimes difficult to understand.
Read full review
Wrike
  • The email notifications that are automatically sent from Wrike when something is done are easy for users to miss or ignore.
  • Reporting can be limited. You have to create workarounds for collecting/storing the name of the person submitting the form in instances where they do not have their own Wrike license.
  • A more user-friendly interface, especially for those less familiar with project management software, would enhance overall accessibility.

There is nothing that can be better than Jira but it needs to keep improving certain areas especially the attachment size area.

I wish that Wrike had more drag and drop functionality that would be connected to assignee and also I wish that the finish date of a task would update to the date where you checked completed. It does not do that. Also finishing a task doesn't move the start date of the next task it "protects your time in that way", but our management team wants us to quickly see what we have down the pipeline rather than having to scroll down the list of upcoming tasks.

Most of the things are easily manageable except certain things that are hidden and you need to ask teammates who are aware of how they can link attachements in the comment section and so on.

Wrike, overall, is pretty easy to setup and use. I still find challenges in changing milestone dates but our programs / date changes are different than industry standard so that is partly the issue. We love the Excel look along with the dashboards! There are also built in analytics that really assist in seeing where the projects are!

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.

Wrike tasks loads fine, but I hate clicking files and wait for a bit of time since it is powerpoint or word, Wrike assumes I want to open those on Wrike. My suggestion is to link it to office 365 so we do not need Wrike based decoder for PPTX and DOCX

Overall support from Jira team is good. It comes at an additional price but it is very efficient. There are no long wait times, you get a dedicated team to look into your issues. The support is available throughout the year and they keep a record of your issues. Overall we are very satisfied with the support they have provided us over the years, it has been very effective for the price that we pay.

Support is very quickly and they want to solve problems actively. When I need additional info I can use community forum, when I've an issue I can use support form to get help. The support is of excellent quality from the first level, to grow when you talk to the engineers it becomes even more important

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

Microsoft Azure Devops won't have the major functionality of software management like Jira. The customization provided by Jira is having a cutting edge over any project management tool. Adds-on and Plugins feature in the Jira Tool make it as perfect as desired task management tool for any company. One of the best Agile based Project Management Tools.

I have not used other products except Microsoft Teams channels with file sharing and standard sharing from Adobe, text and email messaging, and Zoom/gotomeeting sharing. This is the first product that I have used that had the functionality and platform where the sharing is simplistic. It is better than standard sharing through email or other simple forms because everything stays together.

The sky is the limit for what can be done in Wrike. We started with 1 use case and within 5 months we migrated several key business practices over to Wrike because they were easier to manage. Use cases so far: process improvement, management review, corrective actions, maintenance requests, month-end financial closing, and document management. As we grow, it's easy to imagine putting even more into Wrike where it becomes a cornerstone for how we do business

Return on Investment
Atlassian
  • It has positively impacted our tech teams, allowing them to better organize the tasks and items they are working on and has greatly improved their ability to communicate & review these tasks with other teams.
  • I believe it negatively impacted other departments as lengthy training was required by many associates to attempt using the tool, only to find out it didn't meet our needs, therefore much time was wasted.

  • Adding versions of a document streamlines our editing process, preventing us from reviewing outdated versions of a document. This feature saves time, especially when working with external contributors who may not know Wrike well.
  • Blueprints save time because we do not have to manually enter all the details when scheduling a recurring project.
