Great Project Management Tool

2019-03-15

Overall I like Wrike a lot better than many of the other project management tools I've used. It's straightforward and helps me stay on top of my projects.

Pros

I really like that Wrike is user-friendly and you can basically jump right in without a lot of training. Tasks are easy to create and track and I like the comments feature.

Cons

I wish the comments feature could be integrated with a tool like Slack. Maybe it can be??

One of the best project management softwares

2018-06-05

Managing workflow cross departments in our company with a way to easily communicate outside of email and slack.

Pros

Wrike is very intuitive with the ability to operationalize lots of project management. Most other tools require integrating with other tools to achieve the same level of operationalization. With wrike, I can build forms to streamline workflows and templatize work.

Cons

I wish it auto-assigned subtasks to people in the header tasks, or had a way to add that on. I struggle with constantly adding people to subtasks.

Our team has never been more spot on with our client's requests.

2018-05-18

It gets our team on track, meeting deadlines and avoiding emails at all cost.

Pros

Wrike can be a taylored ticketing solution for a company that understands the importance of teams interaction. So far we're tried at least 2 other companies, but none has given us the support that Wrike has given us. Every company is different, there cannot be a cookie cutter solution tor a ticketing system. That's why we love Wrike, we would never be able to accomplish so much without this awesome tool.

Cons

I wish there was a more intuitive integration with the Slack app. Or maybe more documentation for that matter.

Like Wrike as Asana

2018-12-14

I would adoption and onboarding took longer in Wrike compared to using a combo of Slack and Asana, but eventually it had better value.

Pros

Analytical and account management team seemed to be more prone to Wrike than our creative team. Those who use MS Office seem to appreciate the integration and look at feel.

Cons

Some of our team had more experience in Asana, and continued to talk about more playful and intuitive views in Asana vs Wrike..... For me it felt like you 'had-to' make updates in Wrike... and look for tasks.

General feel is too 'corporate'

2017-04-17

Better colours and general look would help to get our team attracted to the app.

Pros

We have kept Wrike for it's Gantt Charts features which are essential for our work. It's a good way of seeing our work flow.

Cons

We use Slack, Gmail, Calendar, etc and Wrike was not the easiest thing to sell to the team as a whole.

Great project management tool for large teams

2017-01-25

The communication is also seamless, there is a Slack integration which is awesome, so you never miss updates.

Pros

Great for communicating with other people in your department. Especially if you have remote employees or a large team. Easy to use, easy to communicate with others.

Cons

I think there are a lot of 'hidden' features in Wrike. I'd love if they gave more tips/tricks to make using Wrike even more powerful.

Central depository for so many departments --

2016-12-06

After reviewing a variety of PM software solutions, I recommended Wrike to the company I had recently joined. As a dedicated Project Manager, I have the luxury of dedicating time to learning how Wrike operates, setting up the folders, projects and naming conventions as other team members joined in. We were assigned a Wrike Consultant who has guided us through the steps of their Deployment Plan, ensuring we are on track and answering any questions that arise along the way. We still have more features to incorporate into our routine and we're excited about their application.

Pros

The @mention within tasks provides seamless documentation of communication between team members. The timeline view with dependencies allows for a fantastic overview of a project's progress with the freedom to adjust as necessary.

Cons

Still trying to determine how to incorporate communication from external sources (ie email from non-users or Slack messages are being copied/pasted which is time consuming and inconvenient).

Great product for teamwork

2018-06-14

We are no longer communicating one to one or in other software like wrike, we rather use Slack for mass team communication.

Pros

Slack allows you to chat similarly like on Facebook or other sites, with features like images and documents, but is espetially usefull for teamwork.

Cons

Setting up wrike bot as an addon was a bit challenging with making its own channel.

Slack

Pros

I also like how it is tied to our project management software (Wrike).

Cons

My biggest problem is that I sometimes I miss the inital notifications of incoming messages, and then I won't notice that I have them for quite awhile.
