MindGenius Ltd.
[It's] Wonderful for small group or individual planning, brainstorming, explaining, projecting etc. It is also great for reporting or sharing findings of outcomes whether research or business related. It has a free viewer so that if you are presenting on a different computer, the viewer will allow the visuals to be shared. It is not ideal for collaboration unless everyone has this software.

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.

Pros
MindGenius Ltd.
  • GOAL SETTING: Because of the available templates, it is easy to set goals and then revisit them for revision or follow through. I like to brainstorm while I set goals and then come back and annotate my goals with changes, improvements, or add/substract them as needed.
  • STRATEGIC PLANNING: MindGenius is terrific for working through ideas and parameters. I can either use a freelance screen or a template and brainstorm through the goals that I need to meet. Then I can branch out from each objective with the required facets of each one. I am visual so color coding and using shapes to organize the parts of the objective (i.e. the resources needed, people/stakeholders that are involved, missing pieces etc.). When organizing a project or research, I find it invaluable.
  • BRAINSTORMING: MindGenius is a wonderful visual to use in a small group or classroom to brainstorm or record ideas. I also adjunct teach and I find MG a wonderful visual for planning a paper or demonstrating how to support ideas in a paper or to verify that research is completed properly. it is a teacher's must-have.

Cons
MindGenius Ltd.
  • MindGenius is not as intuitive as I would like it to be. Although there is a quick-key stroke or movement that will replicate a shape or field if I want to make a parent or child block, I never remember what it is. I always use the manual insert by clicking with the mouse and it takes longer. If CONTROL ENTER created a new shape field like "the last one" or the one where the cursor is blinking, that would help considerably.
  • Changing the default visuals for a template or making a new template is overly time-consuming. Although I understand these details may only matter to someone as ULTRA-VISUAL a I am, if the font is too small or the shapes need to be visually altered, there is not a way to quickly grab those boxes and change the settings in one fell swoop. Although there is a way they can be changed, I have to navigate inside this and then inside this to get to the screen and then I have to figure out which changes the lines or the inside color of the shape etc. These details are a little overwhelming.
  • It would be great if I could make one shape in the font and layout I want and then replicate that pattern to other shapes or apply a different color scheme to it entirely. If these features already exist, i cannot find them and I consider myself to be rather tech savvy.

  • Automation Engine - it would be great to have more triggers and actions available.
  • Standard reporting is already interesting. 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.

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.

Reliability and Availability

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

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.

Implementation Rating
MindGenius Ltd.

Wrike
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.

I have not used another product like MindGenius. Although I use Microsoft One Note for sometimes making lists that sync across my PC and my devices, I do not have another mind-mapping programming. MindGenius only has an app for iPad and without accessibility on iOS, I have not been able to use it for my daily TO DO lists etc that I would otherwise do. I use One Note for that role since MG does not have a phone app

Ultimately, the choice between Wrike and Adobe Workfront 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, Adobe Workfront 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.

  • I have not tracked the positive or negative impact of MG on my overall business objectives. I have successfully used it in the aspects of my personal and professional management.
  • MG helps me stay on track with my research and personal editing. It keeps me accountable so that I meet my deadlines. Although I have not applied a dollar value to it, it helps me signficantly.

  • We have been able to deliver on-time projects 98% of the time. This was certainly not the case prior to using Wrike.
  • At least a 90% reduction in error rate.
