Leading telecommunications provider deploys Wrike project management platform across dozens of departments enterprise-wide, 9-month projects now take 16 weeks to complete
SAN JOSE, Calif., May 5, 2020 - Wrike, the most versatile collaborative work management platform, today announced that Arvig Enterprises, a multi-service communications provider, has implemented Wrike across dozens of departments and teams to significantly improve enterprise-wide communications and reduce project completion times. With Wrike, Arvig no longer spends hours searching for project information, now completing 9-month projects in 16 weeks and saving over 20% in project costs.
Arvig quickly realized that spreadsheets and other manual applications were wasting precious time and resources, and required a robust project management platform that could be deployed enterprise-wide. “We really needed a centralized collaboration and work management platform that could be used by anyone, regardless of department or location,” said Shaun Carlson, Director of Research and Development and Continuous Innovation, Arvig. “Using Wrike has helped us manage an entire portfolio of projects end to end. Wrike provides us a single source of truth for information and communication.”
Wrike’s automated processes — dashboards, custom workflows, and flexible functionality — increase efficiency and save time. Projects can have multiple owners, ensuring accountability and encouraging collaboration. Wrike makes it easy to view work across teams, using Gantt charts to deliver a timeline view of all projects, which also helps Arvig reallocate resources as needs arise.
One of Arvig’s recent projects consisted of an unwieldy and unmanageable list of close to 400 tasks. “With Wrike, we were able to break the project up and build structure with deliverables, dependencies, time frames, resource requirements, and more.” added Carlson. “Wrike gives us greater clarity and speed in managing every project. With greater project visibility and reporting, we can easily reassign resources to work on different projects that are critical to the success of our organization.”
“Enterprises like Arvig recognize the importance of cross-department collaboration by implementing leading project management platforms,” said Saranya Babu, Wrike’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “With Wrike, Arvig provides its staff an efficient and streamlined way of working that is critical to today’s professionals.”
