MeisterLabs
MindMeister is ideally suited for building mind maps, site maps, or similar types of data maps in the cloud without needing to install extra software. I find that it isn't quite as ideal for other types of diagrams (ERDs, flowcharts, etc) as some other tools, though it definitely can handle those things as well.

Wrike
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
MeisterLabs
  • The UI is well laid out and easy to use. The workflow makes perfect sense and makes creating tasks a breeze.
  • The collaboration features make brainstorming not only easy but fun! Everyone enjoys using the tool, which was not the case with other collaboration software we used.
  • I love being able to get all of my thoughts and ideas on the screen to see them and then be able to connect them in a logical way.

Wrike
  • Assigns project numbers to projects
  • Neatly organizes tasks for projects for smooth workflow
  • Easily allows for deadlines to be set and approvals to be made
  • Communication with others is as simple as an "@"
  • Tracking billable and nonbillable time is a cinch

Cons
MeisterLabs
  • I think that the free plan should offer a bit more terms of features to make the testing experience more engaging.
  • My experience using the App version was not so good when compared to the web version of it. I feel more comfortable using it in my notebook.
  • Paid plans could be more flexible to support small or temporary demands.

  • 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 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

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.

Performance

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
MeisterLabs
Never had an issue with customer support, though we never really needed anything major as far as technical help. I do not believe they offer 24 hour customer support but we don't need it as MindMeister is not the type of tool we need need 24 hour a day support for. Overall, very happy with the level of support.

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

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.

Alternatives Considered
MeisterLabs
I have also used LucidChart and Google Draw to create mind maps and concept maps in the past. I think that MindMeister is by far the cleanest and most user friendly of the three. Google Draw does not have anywhere near the same functionality. LucidChart tends to be clunky and the options to create your map are not always clear and intuitive.

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.

Scalability

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.

Return on Investment
MeisterLabs
  • The most positive result of using MindMeister is a visualization of each step in work and connections between different nodes(ideas, steps).
  • This greatly simplifies the work, especially collaborative work, since it is easier to show it once than to explain things many times.
  • Negative impact: lack of offline desktop version.

Wrike
  • Great tool for managing and stream lining marketing collateral and asset projects.
  • 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.
