Mountain View, Calif., March 30, 2010 – Wrike.com, a leader in email-integrated project management software, has become a vitally important collaboration platform for Absolute.org, a charity organization that changes the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in need globally. Wrike lets every member of the nonprofit's team have an instant view of the status of any project and see the changes made by other team members in real time, which allows them to dramatically decrease the number of lost or forgotten tasks.
Thanks to its unique ability to merge data on multiple projects in one workspace, selectively share information with people and reflect all the changes made by the team members immediately on an interactive timeline, Wrike helped Absolute.org to systematize their distributed team's collaboration and easily gain absolute workflow transparency. Wrike's intuitive and easy-to-use interface made the project management software adoption fast and stress-free. "Wrike has an ideal balance for a project management system. It is extensive enough to handle a variety of workflows and processes to actually be useful. But is also intuitive, fast and user-friendly enough to actually be used," said Ryan Wood, COO at Absolute.org.
Wrike's patent-pending email integration, known as Intelligent Email Engine™, allowed the team to attach their email discussions to shared project plans. This resulted in better project communications, a remarkable increase in team productivity and a significant drop in lost and forgotten assignments. "We are largely dependent on email, and for our team, Wrike's email integration turned out to be a life-saver. Being able to create tasks by simply forwarding a project-related email to Wrike does save a lot of time. Discussion on a task is often done through email. But the biggest benefit is that, thanks to Wrike's Email Engine, the discussion also can be found online and is accessible from any computer in our Wrike workspace. Wrike's email notification system helps to keep everyone on the team in the loop. Therefore, fewer tasks are lost, and more items are completed on time," Absolute.org's COO said. "I feel that Wrike has helped me become 75% more organized in managing my work and in tracking delegated tasks."
"We're happy to see that our project management software is recognized not only by businesses throughout the world, but also has gained popularity among charitable nonprofits, like UNICEF, Absolute.org, UKSA, MILLEE and many others. Making project managers lives in different organizations easier is a core part of our mission. It's great to realize that Wrike saves managers hours on routine operations, so that they have more time for making this world a better place," said the CEO of Wrike.com, Andrew Filev.
