Now, with the release of the new version, we’re taking another big step in helping business users worldwide maximize their project management efficiency. During the last few months, the Wrike team has been passionately working on the right project productivity formula. We are excited to present our new version at the Web 2.0 Expo.”

Faster Performance, Clean and Intuitive User Interface

The new Wrike is designed for speed and productivity. Every action — like creating a task or a project, assigning it to a team member, sharing project data with a team, or attaching a file — is done in a click or two. The new streamlined interface was developed based on extensive usability studies and deep analysis of Wrike users’ feedback. New users are able to start actively collaborating on their projects the very moment they enter the workspace for the first time. No training is needed.

Unparalleled Personal and Team Productivity

The dashboard is turned into a powerful, yet simple, personal productivity tool in Wrike’s new version. Upon opening the dashboard, team members immediately see what they should be working on today and get real-time updates from their peers. Managers easily coordinate the work of their staff and closely follow the progress of multiple projects.

Social Project Management

Avatars bring a visual experience to teams’ online interactions, and they make the online workplace much friendlier to all users. Thanks to this feature, the management platform becomes more engaging, which results in growing efficiency of project collaboration.

Real-Time Insight into Projects

The new Wrike gives project managers an ability to simultaneously see their tasks and projects compiled in a list and visualized on a Gantt chart. The list view provides them with most important details about any particular task, including due dates, task duration and the people responsible for it. The Gantt chart pane visualizes all the team’s changes to project plans in real time. It also allows users to instantly reschedule tasks by dragging and dropping items. This powerful tool puts managers in control of their project data and gives them a 1,000-foot, real-time view of what their teams are working on.
