Is anyone (or has anyone) used a project management system called Wrike? If so, do you recommend it (and why), or would advise us to not consider it (and why)?  Thanks for your help!

Hi there - Can you share what you are hoping to get out of a system as Wrike?

What other platforms are you using to get your job done?
What type of work is it?
How big is the budget/duration/team?
Do you employ outside resources?
Do you have seasoned PMs?

The more color you can give the better we can all help you in this important decision.

Manos,

We are a 20-person full service agency - branding/positioning, strategic marketing planning, content marketing, social, digital, etc. We have outgrown our "manual" project management processes, which have been cobbled togehter over the years using EXCEL spreadsheet-based and Google-doc GANTT charts, time scheduling, etc. Project team assigned and they are coming back with a preliminary recommendation that we subscribe to Wrike. Had not heard of it before and am looking to see if others have. You are the only one who has responded.

We currently use Clients & Profits for time tracking, billing, accounts payable, cash disbursements, and general ledger functions.

Does this help?

Hi John-

We are a small agency- 5 people, who currently use Wrike. We currently use it for project management, not for time tracking. We are looking to replace Wrike with a software system that can incorporate a more robust time tracking and better workflow system. If you are looking to use it strictly as a project "to-do" list, it's a great system. We just found that it had a lot of limitations for what we needed it to do.
