Wrike Releases Online Collaboration Tool Integrated with Email and with Gantt chart Built In
California - June 15, 2007 - Wrike project management software today announced its release. Thousands people have been using Wrike in beta. On June 15, Wrike was released to the general public with its expanded Online Project Collaboration functionality, including a Timeline (simplified Gantt Chart).
A timeline gives managers the big picture of parallel projects, helps track the work load of team members and allows managers to create an elegantly designed outline of plans and projects. All these management tasks are a huge challenge when using other online project management and collaboration tools.
Wrike, the next generation productivity application, has changed the approach to the online collaboration and democratized project management software.Wrike has brought collaboration into project management tools. In many senses, Wrike compares to tools like Microsoft Project as wikis compare to tools like Microsoft Word.
Wrike allows you to create tasks and track their progress via email. Simply add wrike//wrike/com to the email recipients, and the system creates a task in your personal workspace on the Web. Add the due date into the subject of these emails, and wrike.com will build a Gantt chart for you.
Launched the public beta on Le Web 3 (Dec. 12, 2006); received an award for best start-up in the B2B category.
Wrike was presented as a featured demonstrator at "Launch: Silicon Valley 2007" (June 05, 2007).
Wrike is designed to help busy managers to handle their everyday tasks, projects and people at a fraction of the cost of enterprise project management suites. Wrike is provided as a hosted service. The basic subscription is free (used to share plans with people outside of the team).
I think it's obvious from Wrike's design that the system engineers all have project management experience. It's seems like they took our feature wish list and built a service around it."
