SAN JOSE, Calif., May 26, 2021 - Wrike, the most intelligent and versatile collaborative work management platform, now part of Citrix, today announced a new Freemium offering with unlimited seats, designed to meet the collaboration and work management demands of hybrid workforces.
Unlike other Freemium offerings on the market, Wrike Free brings an entire organization into one platform, allowing them to communicate, collaborate, analyze, and report out from a single source of truth. This instantly removes the complexities brought about by a plethora of work and communication tools that typically create workplace “noise” and force employees to use multiple tools as a way to keep connected with peers. Built with scalability, security, and automation at the core, the Wrike platform increases agility and velocity of employee output, automates workflows, provides clarity, and aligns teams across the organization — a top priority for CIOs and business leaders in 2021.
“Companies and their employees are near breaking point — they’re struggling with email and instant message overload, an inability to effectively collaborate in real time, and meeting fatigue. The challenges surrounding remote and hybrid work are also escalating, which is creating a massive shift in the market to adopt enterprise wide collaboration and work management solutions,” says Andrew Filev, Senior Vice President and Wrike General Manager, Citrix.
“We can’t keep throwing traditional tools at modern problems. The nature of today’s work is such that it travels across an organization — traversing many teams, reporting up to the C-suite, out to multiple suppliers and back again. It’s complex. But if employees are given the opportunity to truly work as one team, on a single platform, they elevate themselves out of menial tasks to focus on their most valuable output: creative, strategic thinking. And that’s what truly powers a business and drives innovation.”
By flipping the Freemium model and allowing an unlimited number of users, Wrike opens up its collaborative work management solution to an entire organization from the get-go. It removes team silos and allows everyone to quickly experience the benefit of working as one team in a highly versatile, secure platform. In particular, for nonprofit organizations and educational institutions with smaller budgets, having widespread access to Freemium solutions can be particularly beneficial.
Available now, Wrike Free features include:
- Single source of truth for individuals and teams to align and manage different types of work.
- Unlimited users so organizations can easily deploy Wrike to their entire workforce.
- Visibility with task and subtask management and progress tracking with live activity views across global, project, and task levels.
- Interactive views such as Board view, which is just like moving sticky notes on a whiteboard.
- Intelligent app experience that continuously improves with user activity via Work Intelligence, Wrike’s predictive machine learning engine.
- Pre-built cloud storage integrations, e.g., with Google Drive, Microsoft Office 365, and Box.
- Award-winning web, desktop, and mobile applications.
