Just in, we’re excited to share that we’ve been recognized as a Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Collaborative Work Management. It’s a big deal for us, and here’s why. Leaders demonstrate a solid understanding of key product capabilities and commitment to customer success that buyers in the market demand. They have a record of strong execution and an ability to influence the market’s direction. And guess what? Wrike’s a Leader!

A Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors. We were evaluated for our Completeness of Vision and our Ability to Execute.

“As one of the first vendors to co-create the CWM market, we believe this recognition is a testament to unwavering focus on our vision and commitment to delivering the best possible solution for our customers,” says Alexey Korotich, Vice President of Product at Wrike.

Gartner analysts evaluate vendors on their ability to convincingly articulate their current and future market direction, innovation, customer needs, and competitive positioning, and how well they map to customer needs.

Wrike’s predictions for CWM

Alexey Korotich sees a bright future for collaborative work management (CWM) tools. He predicts they will take the business world by storm, especially among the top executives. Alexey points out that business leaders — nearly half, to be exact — are planning to increase their IT budgets, and many are evaluating new projects or work management software.

But here’s where it gets interesting. It goes beyond investing in new tech. These leaders are after something more: tools that pack a punch with smarts. We’re talking intelligence, analytics, and integrations.

These features help teams increase productivity and make decisions that count. And Alexey has his finger on the pulse when he says the best CWM platforms don’t just barge in and shake things up. No, they’re the ones that complement your existing workflow as if they’ve always been there. They speak your team’s language and align with the tools you already use, making the transition smooth and speedy.

Alexey says, “We’re stepping into an era where intelligent CWM tools don’t just assist; they transform how we work, ushering in new levels of efficiency and innovation.” Now, that’s something to get excited about.

Wrike’s ongoing commitment

Our journey doesn’t end with this recognition. As industries evolve and new challenges arise, we remain dedicated to advancing our platform, ensuring it remains the most capable, versatile, and intuitive work management solution for any team, department, or organization.
