Project Management Professional Saves 30 Hours a Month with Wrike
Mountain View, Calif., Oct. 26, 2009 - Wrike.com, the most practical project management software on the market, helps Cornelius Fichtner, a PMP, save 30 hours a month on managing his team.
Cornelius Fichtner, a PMP with 18 years of experience, who is now a show host at The Project Management PrepCast, reports incredible time savings, thanks to the leading project management software, Wrike.com. When Fichtner's company snowballed from 1 to 5 employees within a month, he realized he needed a project management tool that would let his team stay on top of things, foster communication and issue reminders. "Wrike is just perfect for what we are doing," said Fichtner.
Prior to using Wrike, Fichtner's team, comprised of full-time virtual assistants from around the world, were collaborating via email. Also, Fichtner used an Excel file to keep a handle on who was doing what. The result was the absence of visibility into the project status and a lot of routine work. "I was in the dark about my projects' statuses and knew that tools like MS Project would never help me," commented Fichtner.
Fichtner is on top of the communication flow now, thanks to Wrike. He can easily keep the pulse of the projects' statuses, see a detailed view of his employees' plans and progress, or get a general overview. With Wrike, Fichtner's team members didn't have to change their habits to collaborate via email. Wrike's Intelligent Email Engine lets them create and update tasks via email without the need to login into the Web workspace. Now Fichtner CCs all emails with tasks to wrike//wrike/com, and they are instantly added to the company's plans in Wrike. Whenever a task is discussed or updated, Fichtner receives an instant email notification. The big picture of his projects is always available on Wrike's Dynamic Gantt Chart online. "Wrike saves me about 30 hours of work every month!" concluded Fichtner.
