At Steegle we are fans of great products and after a long deliberation of project management tools we chose (and now recommend) Wrike.
So what is Wrike?
Wrike is an all-in-one project management and collaboration software that integrates with Google Apps to bring your team closer to success. It connects tasks, discussions, and emails to your actual project plan and integrates with Google Apps to give attachments from Drive and task from emails in Gmail. You get an up-to-date picture of the project and can keep your team aligned with your strategy without boring status meetings.
With multiple teams and multiple projects running concurrently, Wrike keeps you on top of your team’s work without extra email and status meetings. Wrike helps you build repeatable processes, streamline operations, and get real-time visibility into the status of specific clients, projects, and key milestones.
With Wrike, your colleagues can collaborate on projects in real time. They are more engaged because they know exactly what to do and how their work connects to others. As tasks are handed off, new contributors get the complete context, access to previous decision-making discussions, and relevant files are already attached, so they have all the info they need.
