Growing with Customers, Growing the Team
 
In 2013, we worked hard and moved fast. The number of customers like you that enjoyed the premium version grew by more than 60%, and today we’re happy to serve over 4,500 organizations of different sizes, including brands like PayPal, Ecco, and Google. In fact, thousands of new companies try Wrike every month, and we hope that our family will keep growing. 
 
Just a couple of weeks ago, you helped us reach another remarkable milestone – the number of tasks managed in Wrike exceeded 20 million
 
Alongside growing the number of customers, we've been growing our capability to better serve you by adding team members in charge of customer success, sales, marketing, operations, and product engineering.

Releasing Features that Rock  
 
This year alone, there were 30+ big and small feature releases, as well as hundreds of important improvements that aren’t immediately visible on the front end. 
 
In August, we launched Wrike Graphite, and it's not just hype to say that this release contributed to shaking up the online collaboration space with features such as project infographics, timers with live status broadcast, task dependencies, and lots of other powerful, but easy-to-use tools.
 
Driven by your needs and the suggestions of other customers with large deployments, we introduced the Wrike Enterprise plan just last week as our year-end finale. With the help of big data technologies, we've made it easier to manage large distributed teams and complex projects. Get a high-level overview in this short video.

Wrike FundingWrike and Bain Capital Ventures:
More Than Just Funding


On the strategic business side, one of our key milestones this year was receiving $10 million in funding from Bain Capital Ventures, which gives us the resources to grow even faster in 2014 than we did this year.  

 








Spreading the Word
 
Our feature-filled releases didn’t go unnoticed by the press. Over the past several months, Wrike was featured in business and tech media giants such as Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, AllThingsD, TechCrunch, and Venturebeat, to name just a few. Overall, Wrike received almost twice as much coverage this year, compared to last year ... and we're still counting.

So to all of you customers and friends, a big thank you for supporting and believing in Wrike. Your patronage and feedback are extremely helpful and always very much appreciated.

Happy holidays to you and your families. And see you in 2014 with a couple of big releases just around the corner.
