Overall Satisfaction with Wrike

Wrike is used primarily as a Project management tool but we also use it for general documentation. This is the main factor why wrike sets himself above the competition. The flexibility in his folder / tag structure and the real time collaboration features enable us to use it in multiple ways. We use it as a ticketing system, a book inventory, IT Hardware inventory and naturally Project management, everything mixed together to get the best benefit as possible.
  • Tagging folders and tasks multiple times in the tree. This way there is no systematical border to your creativity or your Business logic, you can group everything like you need it and the best is, a user can create his own structure without disturbing others if the folders are private only.
  • Great UI with a very good realtime Description editor
  • Good Integration with 3rd party systems like google, dropbox, box and zapier. We use the google integration and we like it a lot
  • Information left in Folders is not searchable at the moment
  • Attach emails to a tasks directly through google mail plugin, at the moment you can only create new tasks via plugin
  • Show all location of a folder tagged multiple times in the hierarchy when hovering over the tag in the Task
  • Modify recurring tasks in a manner you can create an endless tasks with some systematical help and not just moving the task one interval further
  • We improved communication between employees
  • Documentation has been setup in multiple areas where we would have needed multiple solutions distributed in different systems and sheets
  • Better transparency of Projects
The others do a good job in their domain but Wrike's flexibility an the streamlined UI made the difference. We used 5pm before and with no big invest we got a scalable and feature wise huge upgrade. The competition like Basecamp and Asana look nicer in some aspects but they are also more expensive and have less flexibility.
I think the flexibility of Wrike makes it suitable for almost anything you can imagine and I can not think of a problem we could not solve with Wrike when it comes to managing, documenting and timing. If you want to achieve more than just queuing tasks, Wrike is the best way to go.

Using Wrike

I have not seen any system so far that can scale the way Wrike does and still keep a simple UI. Yes if you do not set up rules for creating new tasks and folders it can get messy but I still prefer some mess you can clean up very fast than a system that covers only half of the needs you have and the other is a total mess.

Wrike Reliability

we only had a few downtimes over the last year and most of them have been resolved within max. one hour
