Their story

Schedule changes were difficult to track and interfered with accountability on other projects

There are two critical success factors for modern healthcare companies. First, they always need to demonstrate a "value-for-money" approach to their clients. Second, they must provide service of the highest quality. For Kat Holt's marketing team, this means that no single day is the same as the next, and even a fine-tuned project schedule can fall apart as new tasks and challenges rapidly appear. That's why they often find themselves forced to juggle conflicting priorities and changing schedules. The team needed to make their work processes more flexible without losing accountability.

Wrike helps the team remain calm under pressure. Via prioritizing and organization, we can effectively deliver better results.
