We're honored to announce that Wrike has been named as one of the first Google Apps Authorized Technology Partners. This will enhance our presence in the Google Apps Marketplace. In addition, as Authorized Technology Partners, we'll receive a range of product/technical, marketing, sales, program, relationship, and support benefits from Google. These benefits will ultimately help us provide more value to our mobile users.

We're looking forward to working with Google on two fronts: to drive richer product integrations with Google Apps services that create value for our users, and to reach new potential users through the Google Apps Marketplace and other joint go-to-market efforts.

We talked to two customers to ask them about how Wrike’s integration with Google Apps has positively affected their workflow:

Crescent Sock Company, the oldest operating hosiery mill in the U.S., has been knitting socks for over a century. Using Wrike integrated with Gmail and Google Drive has virtually eliminated the previous hassle of e-mailing dozens of attachments to other team members. Now they just attach the Google Doc to the task. “We’ve had many opportunities to collectively create project plans in a few short hours with Wrike when it previously took several e-mails and days waiting for responses to accomplish similar tasks,” says George Ervin, Business Tech Consultant at Crescent Sock Company.

Imaginamos, a web and software development company in Bogotá, Colombia, uses Wrike's integration with Gmail to manage multiple simultaneous projects with ease. "Without leaving our inbox, we can create and assign Wrike tasks directly from email,” says Simon Borrero, Director of Business and Strategy at Imaginamos. "In this way, we can make sure every message is addressed and nothing gets left behind."

As a Google Apps Authorized Technology Partner, we’re looking forward to hearing more stories like this, and enabling more organizations to efficiently leverage email and file storage with work management.
