We talk a lot on the blog about businesses needing tools to get their act together. But it's not just construction companies, software development teams, and marketing agencies that have to organize their work to be efficient. There is also a large community of creatives using online project management software to coordinate their projects. Check this out:

Wrike as a Planning & Collaboration Tool for Recording
"I use Wrike to plan out all my studio time so that it's most efficient." —Charles L. Coleman II, Music Producer
Wrike as a Music Catalog Tool
Coleman s Wrike is as a music catalog tool "library", that helps him document and quickly find all the music he's created and released, as well as what stage each is in.
"In my Wrike instance, I have custom fields for every track I make," says Coleman. "This way I can document collaborators (any additional musicians who played on a track), samples I may have used, placement (whether the track has been placed and where), target artist (e.g. "Beyonce" or "Drake"), instruments played (f any live instruments were used).
"This also allows me to easily pull reports on what music I have available for placement and quickly find songs via the information in my custom fields. It becomes easier to submit tracks to ASCAP or to get copyrights on the music when you have all your paperwork readily available.
"I can also judge efficiency. I can quickly answer questions such as: How many songs did create last year? How many did I place? Do I need to be creating more? Did we spend too much on musicians last year?"

From Paper Notebooks to Online Project Management Software
"Before using Wrike to manage my business, to be honest, I used a production notebook," Coleman shares. "I used to take notes using pen and paper. In fact, I have about four or five old notebooks at home. And it was a PAIN to find things in them. Or even to prepare the paperwork you need to submit music for placement."
ow, there's no looking back for Coleman and
"Wrike is both a business and personal tool. It allows me to keep things in their respective buckets, and yet have only to deal with one portal for all that work. It has helped me make improvements in my workflow that save me my most precious resourcetime."
