Overall Satisfaction with Wrike

Wrike is being used by our organization for one primary purpose, which is project management. Although there are multiple uses of the software, different teams in our organization use its other modules for secondary purposes. Since our organization is so large, there are a variety of tools used by different teams based on their requirement and usage. It is not possible for our entire organization to use just one tool. Wrike addresses various solutions in project management within software development. Projects can be well managed, reported, and reviewed on a daily basis using Wrike.
  • Project Management: This is a very strong tool for real-time project management and resource management.
  • Charts: It provides GANTT charts, which give a very easy visual representation of where we stand in our current process of development.
  • It provides process improvement and transparency to the current status of projects.
  • Since it can be integrated with other software, data can be imported and used efficiently.
  • Set up is daunting. Although we paid for someone to help us set up the process, we quickly realized that their orientation instructions weren't suited for our situation at all.
  • With sub-tasks, changing a task's deadline would also change the subtask's deadlines. When I push things forward or backward with the GANTT chart, I then have to go into each subtask and adjust them as well. Sometimes, it seems easier to make everything tasks, so that I can use the cause/effect of dependencies.
  • The design could be improved. It's functional, attractive, but can still go a long way to make it more intuitive.
  • It definitely has a positive impact on the ROI, as it saves time and cost in project management.
  • It helps achieve our goals as an organization in Agile project management and software development. It is very useful to schedule future tasks based on current tasks.
  • Mobile support is also one key, as it has notifications upon task completion or for communication. This again saves time and cost.
Just like all software, all have their pros and cons. Wrike has its own advantages and disadvantages. However, after having evaluated a lot of software, Wrike had a lot of positives. It helps to streamline teams and manage projects very well. It also helps in simpler communication that saves time and cost. Mobile support is also a major plus!
It helps us collaborate and have the entire team surrounded and working on a common goal and keeping a real-time status of their projects and goals. It helps us to consolidate communication and give more attention to third party members and their progress. It gives transparency into what the team is working on and where they currently stand. The GANTT charts give visibility into future planning. It helps set up workflows for projects, to notify tasks and know when they should begin work.
