Key differentiators & advantages of Wrike
- Gain Visibility Into Project Details: Wrike’s dashboards use widgets to show an overview of key data on a single screen. You can use the out-of-the-box widgets or create custom versions. This allows managers to track overdue items, see the tasks awaiting approval, view tasks based on status and monitor other details.
- Save Time: Automated reminders take work off of managers’ plates. Once a task is assigned, the system sends deadline alerts to the assignee and also sends managers update notifications for continual progress monitoring.
- Always Stay Connected: Wrike’s mobile app ensures anyone on your team can access project information from their device of choice, at any time and while on the go.
- Configure Integrations: Wrike Integrate enables you to integrate with thousands of other apps, giving your team access to the platforms you need. Additionally, it supports workflow automation and data syncing.
- Connect to Other Tools: Wrike supports integration with many of the top tools needed to enhance project success. Examples include Tableau for business intelligence insights, Box for file storage needs, Salesforce for CRM activities, SAML for single sign-on (SSO), Slack for messaging and GitHub for two-way task and issue management.
- Shape the System to Your Needs: Customizations allow you to get the most out of Wrike. Work in a way that’s best for your team by taking advantage of custom fields, workflows and more.
- Make Processes More Efficient: Using workflow rules, you can create standards that keep every task moving smoothly through each project phase. This makes it easy to track the status of every task and to ensure everyone receives the correct work in the proper order.

Wrike facilitates data transfer for users switching from Microsoft Project, ensuring all elements are imported for MPP, MPX and XML formats.
- Task Management: Wrike brings together all aspects of your project — tasks, schedules and team communications — into a single location for more efficient project management. The platform connects with Gmail, Apple Mail and Outlook, allowing you to manage tasks directly from your inbox. It also facilitates time tracking and reporting.
- Project Templates: A range of pre-built templates allow teams to start with key elements already in place. Specific template types include agile teamwork, project scheduling, event management, product launches, Kanban projects, ticketing and helpdesk, sprint planning, and product roadmaps.
- Reports: Wrike offers reporting capabilities to users with business and enterprise accounts. The report builder takes you through the four-stage process of creating a report, with inputs for type, source data, filters and layout (table or column). Report topics include weekly project status, unassigned tasks, active tasks by assignee and others.
- Wrike Resource (premium add-on): This feature provides resource management and is available with Business, Wrike for Marketers and Enterprise plans.

- Wrike Lock (premium add-on): Wrike provides cloud security and privacy with encryption keys. Both your data and the keys are encrypted, letting you determine who can access and edit the information stored on the platform. You have full control over the individual keys via a master key that’s stored by the Key Management Service from AWS.
- Wrike Publish (premium add-on): This feature enables digital asset management (DAM). Integrations with DAM platforms provide a range of capabilities, including stakeholder collaboration and file proofing.
