Wrike

I've tried other project management and collaboration tools but Wrike is it for me. I have no project management certifications but I am technically savvy. Some PM tools were overkill for my needs but Wrike easily did what I wanted it to do: schedule multiple marketing channel activities and assign tasks related to getting them out. For example, we had direct mail campaigns, email blasts, social media posts and industry specific ads that went on throughout the year. I was able to schedule everything and generate monthly and quarterly schedules for senior management so they knew what we were doing in advance. I assigned tasks to graphic designers and others on the team related to each project. In terms of more traditional project management, Wrike can do that too. Gantt charts, scheduling resources, dependencies, time management, etc. It is awesome for web design projects.

Pros

  • Notifications: These are great for keeping everyone in the loop regarding projects that are managing.
  • Organization: The subtasks feature is very great at keeping all of the steps of a project in one area.
  • Integration: It is easy to keep tasks up to date by using their email feature.

Cons

  • The Gantt charting needs some work.
  • The lists of what tasks are assigned to you can get long and daunting because it shows up in this list no matter how far out it is scheduled.
  • The update emails don't have enough information to always know which task the update is related to. To fix this you have to put the name of the parent task in the subtasks.

Wrike is a free resource for us currently, we moved off the subscription as the team had some adjustments. If we were to go back to a paid model or require more time reporting I'd have to look at alternatives such as Podio. I am the sole manager of Wrike currently internally, and would like to get more people on board to justify the cost

Reliability and Availability

Wrike9.0
Based on 8 answers
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.

Their support was done mainly through email and depending on their work lord, could take longer to get a response. But the response was still within a reasonable time frame and courteous every time.

Online Training

Wrike does a great job of provide a breadth of videos for learning their program. This includes a 'getting started' sett of videos along with a collection of more in depth videos to assist more experienced users. Combined with their excellent chat support learning wrike is easy and it includes easy access to best practices.

Implementation

Stick with it and resist the temptation to slack in your use of project management software.

Alternatives Considered

First of all others are designed for only small projects and events. I used to work with Basecamp and Trello in different time periods for my individual projects and in my previous job. They can't help you in large projects. The main problem is that they don't have the enormous tools or features which Wrike gives us. They can be useful for short-term and very small events, but in that case they don't have perfect time tracking or document collaboration and document sharing tools.

Return on Investment

  • Helped improve project management and coordination among virtual teams.
  • Difficult to get the organization to adopt wrike as people did not want to take the time to learn it.
  • Helped us manage evolving timelines and future tasks.
