Overall Satisfaction with Wrike

Everyone in my org uses Wrike for all of our business processes - from a simple to-do list for items we want purchased or picked up at the store, all the way to using it for Agile development tracking using the "Board" view for project issues. I tried out multiple applications for this kind of functionality, but none were able to combine all the functions I wanted in a simple, clean, elegant interface.

Wrike is critical to my company. Without it, I'd be using 3 or 4 different solutions to do what I do with it.
  • Project Scrum Boards. I have one user who loves lists. I prefer the board view. When we get a project manager pulled into a project they prefer using the Timeline or Stream views. All so easy to switch between.
  • Conversion of notes and data collection into a project. We have so much research going on and dump tons of information into folders. When we're ready to pounce it's so easy to turn it into a full-blown project.
  • The communication is so easy in Wrike. I know a lot of people love Slack, but Wrike does all of that plus more.
  • An updated app that gives me the full Wrike experience on my phone. The app is great for communications and note taking, but not for managing the projects.
  • Without Wrike we'd still be using Google docs or something similar. Which was sloppy and left us missing things. Plus we had no timeline. No scrum board. Wrike is literally critical to our operations because it's the one that we adopted to be an all-in-one solution.
Slack didn't have project management or agile support in a way that we wanted to work with it.
Quick projects. Targeted projects. Fast spin up and burn down. These are where it excels.

If you want a massive multi-year project with lots of resources and project managers all working together, perhaps a larger scale application would work better. But for startups, small businesses, Wrike is the application I will go to every time.
