Their story

As the company grew, it was more difficult to get real-time task updates from team members, which jammed the development process

When there were only 5 employees at ROI Revolution, it was easy for the founder to delegate tasks and monitor results in an informal way. As the company developed and the team grew to 30 people (150+ people in 2017), the increasing pressure of multitasking required a management tool. The company tried to use email and Outlook Tasks for this purpose, but rapidly outgrew both. According to Timothy Seward, CEO of ROI Revolution, the problem with these tools was that they provided no visibility, no collaboration, and no easy way to update, unassign, or reassign tasks. Once there were more than 30 people on the team, Timothy realized that task management had become really clumsy. ROI Revolution needed a robust task management system to get things done more efficiently and on time.

I love the fact that Wrike hit everything in my dream list! With Wrike’s help, we get vastly better results, we get more things done and done faster.

Their victory

Wrike’s simple and seamless task management solution helped provide visibility on important tasks, and cut meetings in half

Wrike provides ROI Revolution with an easy and helpful way to organize their workflow, structure tasks in neat hierarchies, and break work down into smaller, easy-to-tackle items. Wrike eliminates the stress of multitasking, since there is no need to keep a large number of tasks in mind, and team members can fully focus on getting the work done. ROI Revolution was able to communicate in Wrike just as effectively — if not better — than in face-to-face meetings. “Within just the first couple of weeks that we’ve been using Wrike, I was able to immediately save 50% of the time that we used to spend on meetings,” says Timothy.
