What is Wrike?
Wrike is a fairly conservative project management platform. It's not so conservative that it follows the spreadsheet model, like Microsoft Project or Smartsheet – although it does have a table view. But neither is Wrike a totally different take on how project management should be done, like Basecamp. Instead, Wrike switches between a single- and double-panel layout interface, depending on where you are within Wrike's hierarchy.
That hierarchy starts with teams, then goes down to folders (personal, shared, etc). Next come projects, then project phases – if you're using them – which are also represented as folders. Next come task lists, then finally tasks. This hierarchy should make it fairly easy for anyone familiar with project management to be able to jump right in, even with minimal onboarding.
Wrike also focuses on marketing teams in a way other platforms do not, offering a “Wrike for Marketers” product that is specifically tuned to that industry. It integrates with Adobe Creative Cloud, for instance, making it easier for teams to share and review any new marketing assets in development. Wrike also offers a free tier for up to five users, and a comprehensive enterprise product with the services and administrative privileges that big organizations need.
