Wrike is one of the best work hubs out there. It has features all teams love, a smooth learning curve, and is a powerhouse in managing projects. But even the star players need a little backup, and that’s where tools like Miro come in. 

While Miro’s a great place to conduct brainstorming sessions, your roadmap planning, and your retrospectives, going from planning to execution isn’t always as easy. And it almost always involves a ton of copying and pasting.

But it shouldn’t be that way.

By integrating your Miro boards with Wrike, you can go from planning to execution faster with less work. Here’s why that matters — and how you can do it.

Reason #1: You should always be using the best tool for the job

Miro is not a project management tool, and trying to run a project in Miro is like trying to put furniture together using a turkey baster. Sure, it’s the perfect tool for a very specific job, but it doesn’t make sense anywhere else.

Your team is using Wrike for a reason — because it’s a best-in-class project management solution. But in the same way that Miro isn’t built to manage projects, Wrike doesn’t have all the brainstorming features that Miro does. It’s best to use each respective app for its intended purpose. With the right integration solution, you can make sure that’s the case for every team.

So, instead of trying to make your tools do everything, help them stay in their lane. Everyone will be happier for it.

Reason #2: No one should have to copy-paste a brainstorm

You’ve just finished the brainstorm session. Everything makes sense, you’ve got some great ideas, and you’re excited about what comes next. But have you ever gone back to look at a brainstorming board after the session’s over?

It’s a mess with post-its everywhere, half-scrawled notes you meant to clean up, and sections that don’t even make sense anymore. And it’s going to be someone’s job to make sense of all this, so they can copy and paste it into Wrike — where the work is actually going to get done.

Wouldn’t you rather get the project started than spend time copying and pasting data over?

You could try and make brainstorming sessions follow a more rigid structure, but then you’d probably lose out on some of the best ideas. So what do you do?

You integrate Miro with Wrike. That way, the ideas you select for future work automatically get synced to your Wrike projects. From there, you can flesh them out, build out your task hierarchy, scope out your projects, and get things done. No more copying and pasting necessary.

Reason #3: Saving on licenses

How tight is your app budget right now? Are you already being asked to find places to cut spending? 

Whether it’s your teams that are both in Wrike and Miro or you’re working with consultants, you might be overpaying for your licenses. After all, not everyone who needs Wrike to execute work needs a Miro license, especially if all they do is check in on a brainstorm from time to time. Same thing with contractors who help you brainstorm. Do they need a Wrike license? Do you even want to give them access to your Wrike projects?

When you have an integration solution, you can make sure that every contributor only has access to the tools they absolutely need without missing the context they need to do their work. That means everyone can do their best work from their favorite tool.

So, you need an integration. Where do you look?
