Overall Satisfaction with Wrike

I've recently been using Wrike at two different early and mid stage startups. I also played with it a lot before that.
In the two more recent companies we had 5 and 10 users respectively, both enterprise class subscriptions, so I know it in an organisation-wide context very well albeit at a small company.

I've obsessively tried countless project management suites comparing them against each other. My two current favourite suites [are] Wrike and ClickUp. Wrike costs about 30% more, but [I] would say [it] is generally a more finished and reliable enterprise class product. Wrike has an amazing mobile app, and also a vast amount of functionality and [an] ingenious, very efficient design. I'd highly recommend them both. Certainly above other very limited alternatives such as Asana and Basecamp which always frustrate me when I have to work with them.

We are using this software to to track our own tasks and also leave important breadcrumbs [throughout] on tasks [that] affect us across roles and departments. Making work visible across the organisation and aligning over deadlines [has] impact[ed] multiple staff. Organizing assets and time tracking are some of the problems the software solves.
  • Time tracking
  • Amazing mobile app
  • A task can exist in multiple locations
  • Sub-tasks
  • General efficiency + shortcuts
  • Stability + speed
  • Pricing for nonprofits
  • Open working (publicly viewable spaces)
  • Custom field: Task relationships with rollups
  • Time tracking
  • CRM
  • Custom fields
  • Sub tasks
  • Tasks able to exist in multiple locations
  • Rich text format task descriptions
  • Brilliant mobile app
  • Clarity on who is doing what, by when
  • Updating everyone on changed deadlines
  • Organised repository of task related info
  • Time tracking
Please see the "Pros" that I gave Wrike. It's a very advanced, feature-rich, yet elegant piece of software that can grow with many companies as they complexify. Almost everything else that I use feels extremely limited and primitive by comparison, often slower and more buggy too.

Do you think Wrike delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Wrike's feature set?

Yes

Did Wrike live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Wrike go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Wrike again?

Yes

Wrike is excellent in all kinds of contexts except where the budget for project management software is very tight or an extremely simple tool is required - but even then I would recommend to choose a tool that you can grow into as migrating further down the line is really messy and and takes a lot of time.
