Wrike is a great choice for project management. The platform is packed with useful features, such as built-in time tracking and document editing history. It also has a wide variety of services, from straight up standard project management for individuals and teams to a specialized service aimed at managing marketing or creative projects. 

Similar to Smartsheet, Wrike doesn't like to publish all of its pricing. If you're interested in its higher priced enterprise offerings, you'll need to negotiate with Wrike's sales team directly. With that in mind, we'll do our best to detail what Wrike offers at its various pricing tiers, and share the prices we do know about.

In This Guide:

  • Wrike Pricing Plans — Wrike offers five different pricing plans for users, from a free plan to an enterprise option
  • Wrike Cost Per User — As is consistent in the industry, Wrike bases its price on a cost per user basis
  • Wrike Free Costs— This free plan offers a limited version of the software, but is great for testing it out before you buy
  • Wrike Professional Costs— For small to medium sized businesses looking to start off with project management software
  • Wrike Business Costs— Great for mid-sized businesses that have more advanced needs when it comes to project management
  • Wrike for Marketers Costs— As the name suggests, a specific plan for marketers with add-ons and features for marketing, no public pricing available
  • Wrike Enterprise Costs— Exclusively for enterprise-level companies with at least 500 employees, no public pricing available
  • Should You Pay for Wrike?— The final verdict on whether Wrike is right for you

Wrike Pricing Plans

Similar to the rest of the project management software industry, Wrike offers five pricing tiers, comprising one free option and four different options for businesses and enterprises. Choosing the pricing plan that's right for your team depends on what you want to use Wrike for, as well as how many people will need access to project management software.

  • Wrike Free comes at no cost to the user, and is best for individuals and very small teams
  • Wrike Professional is $9.80 per user, per month, and is best for small teams with 5, 10, or 15 users
  • Wrike Business is $24.80 per user, per month, and is best for small to mid-sized teams with 5 to 200 users
  • Wrike for Marketers has no public pricing, but is made for “marketing and creative teams”
  • Wrike Enterprise also has no public pricing, but is aimed at large businesses

Wrike Free is the starting point for project management, with an upper limit of five users. Next, Wrike Professional is where small teams should turn when they outgrow the capabilities of the free tier. Professional has fixed team sizes, meaning you can't choose to pay for 12 or 14 seats – it's 5, 10, or 15, and that's it.

Wrike Business is for larger companies of up to 200 people, or those with more advanced needs. Meanwhile, Wrike for Marketers makes it pretty clear who should be using this tier, with a minimum team size of five and no maximum. 

Finally, Enterprise is for large companies, though it does allow for as few as five people for small teams within a large company.

Wrike Cost Per User

Wrike Free has the always attractive cost of zero dollars per user, but it's a limited service that maxes out at five users.  For those who need to pay, Wrike Professional starts at $9.80 per user, per month. There is a minimum requirement of five users, while you can also opt for 10 or 15. 

Next up is Wrike Business, priced at $24.80 per user, per month. This is where mid-sized teams start to enter the equation. This tier again requires a minimum of five users, and the Wrike pricing page says you can have up to 200 users with volume discounts available. When we tried to upgrade a free account to Business, however, the tier maxed out at 50 users. After that, Wrike requires you to contact its sales team. It may be that you can get 200 users on Wrike Business, but you’ll need to discuss this with Wrike directly.

Wrike also doesn't allow you to specify an exact number of team members in the Business tier. Between 5 and 30 users, you can add team members in increments of five. After that, it's increments of 10, up to “125+”. 

Finally, we have Wrike for Marketers and Wrike Enterprise, which do not have any public pricing. 

Wrike Free Costs

Wrike Tasks

As its name suggests, Wrike Free has no cost for up to five users. This is an ideal tier for individuals looking to manage their freelance or side projects. It's also a good starting point for teams that are still finding their feet. Wrike Free is a barebones service featuring only the basics, including a board view, a spreadsheet view, and basic task management.

You also get a real-time activity stream, integrations with popular services such as Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive, and 2GB of storage space. 

That's about all there is to Wrike Free. It's a great starting point for small teams, and probably about all you’d need for an individual.

Wrike Professional Costs

Wrike Professional is priced at $9.80 per user, per month (billed annually), but as we mentioned earlier, you can only use this tier by paying for 5, 10, or 15 users. That means you'll be paying a minimum of $588, or at most $1,764 per year for project management.

For that money, Wrike adds subtasks, though the free version can also use checklists within a given task to essentially offer the same thing. There are Gantt charts at this level for those who want to use this method to manage their projects and scheduling. It also adds shareable dashboards, more integrations (including MS Project and Excel), 5GB of storage space, and up to 15GB of video uploads per month.

Professional supports collaborators, meaning you can invite non-team members such as contractors, clients, or colleagues from other company departments. Free can sort of do this if you assign someone one of the five spots on a Wrike Free team, and then remove them later on. That's a bit of a hack, though, and not the same as having a built-in feature to invite collaborators as needed.

Professional also supports one of Wrike's specialized add-ons: Wrike Proof. This tool assists the team in getting input and required approvals on an asset, such as a new webpage design. Proof can include people within the team, as well as collaborators.

To sum it all up, Professional adds all the basics missing from the Free tier, and bumps up the storage limits.

Wrike Business Costs

Wrike Board View

Wrike Business is great for mid-sized teams, or smaller teams with more advanced needs. Business starts at $24.80 per user, per month (billed annually), but that only applies to teams of up to 50. After that, it appears you need to speak with Wrike's sales teams, which is where the volume discounts must also come in.

Business adds customizable fields and workflows, shared real-time reports, report templates, analytics graphs, and calendars. You can create request forms if your organization requires that kind of “paper trail” before work gets started. The Business tier is also where Wrike adds its built-in time tracking tool.

Administration becomes important at this level, with the ability to create user groups and assign permissions. Salesforce integration is also included with Wrike Business if your team is using the popular customer relationship management platform.

You can also customize the workspace with your company's branding, instead of looking at Wrike's logo all the time. Wrike Business provides 50GB of storage space, which is quite an increase from the 5GB offered by Wrike Professional, although video uploads remain the same at 15GB per month.

Wrike Business and the higher tiers also support a wide range of Wrike's specialized add-ons, which offer key features for an extra cost. There's Wrike Integrate, for creating custom integrations with more than 400 cloud-based and on-premises apps; Wrike Resource, for planning and staff allocation; and Wrike Publish, for connecting to digital asset management (DAM) systems. For coding shops, there's also support for two-way sync with GitHub and Jira.

Wrike for Marketers Costs

Now we get into the last two tiers, which lack any public pricing. Wrike refers to these last two as “solutions” rather than plans, as they are geared at specific types of teams. 

The marketing solution includes the Wrike Proof add-on as part of the base plan, as well as Wrike Publish. It also offers the Wrike Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud, which allows you to work with Wrike from inside Adobe CC. On top of that, Wrike creates a “tailored workspace” that has a default workflow for creative teams, plus a dashboard with file previews, reports, and request forms.

Wrike Enterprise Costs

Wrike Project

Finally we come to Wrike Enterprise, which again doesn't offer any public pricing, so you need to talk to a sales rep to get an accurate quote. This tier adds the features you'd expect for large businesses, including Active Directory integration, SAML 2.0 single sign-on support, and two-factor authentication.

IT departments get to enforce password policies, allowing them to reject dreaded (and easily hackable) user choices such as “password123”. There are also various administrative permissions, and you can generate user audit reports in case an account is being abused. For teams that want to restrict use to specific IP addresses, there are also network access and compliance policies.

Companies that use business intelligence solutions such as Microsoft's Power BI can export their Wrike data to these tools using the company's application programming interface (API). Tableau users can opt for using Wrike's own integration tool, however. Finally, Enterprise is the only tier that supports the Wrike Lock add-on for controlling data security, which comes at an additional cost.

Finally, Enterprise supports 100GB of storage space, but holds the line at only 15GB of video uploads per month.

Should You Pay For Wrike?

Wrike has a wide range of features and a number of pricing tiers to suit a variety of teams. The downside is that for small teams, it appears you cannot specify an exact number of team members. Instead, you sign up for pre-set team member numbers such as 10 or 15, instead of just 9 or 14. 

Overall, Wrike offers a lot of value at its various pricing tiers. It's also a great service in general for those needing project management software – see our full Wrike review if you need further convincing. The free tier is pretty basic, and we suspect teams will be better satisfied with the paid tiers, but that's par for the course with most project management services.
