Campbell, CA, September 26 , 2012 – Wrike, a leading provider of social project management software, unveils its new version dubbed "Wrike Live," which will empower project teams with even more interactive, fast and efficient features for virtual collaboration. In Wrike Live, people can easily co-author task and project descriptions in real time, instantly seeing each other's edits right as they are being typed. One more addition to Wrike's innovative solution is the new, redesigned Activity Stream, which gives a big live picture of project updates in a work-centric, three-pane view.
With Wrike's new live collaborative text editor, users can edit task and project information simultaneously, while all the changes get saved automatically. What makes this feature revolutionary for the project management space is the fact that the text updates or inserted images instantly appear right as someone is entering them, so that there's no conflict between users' input. Combined with the rich formatting capabilities, Wrike's live editor makes task descriptions look like online text documents that teams can easily collaborate on. This product update is a prominent enhancement to Wrike's social project management mix that includes live discussions, online document collaboration and much more.
The next-generation Activity Stream is another social product update that inspired the "Live" name of Wrike's new version. The new three-pane view makes it easy to navigate between the live overview of project updates, details of a particular task and the project structure. In one screen, workers can stay in the loop with colleagues' actions, discuss work in real time and post important files.
"Wrike's Activity Stream takes real-time teamwork to a new level of productivity in a familiar and totally intuitive look. With its three panes, it resembles an e-mail inbox, but it provides what e-mail never could – smooth collaboration and interactivity. It's a live, dynamic central hub for your work updates where you can feel the pulse of your projects," says Andrew Filev, Wrike’s CEO. "In addition to more interactivity, Wrike Live release also means even more speed and, therefore, more efficiency in project collaboration. The new social features will help both co-located and distributed teams get more connected."
