San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Wrike, a leading provider of social project management software, today announced the availability of a dynamic Gantt chart as part of the latest version of its mobile apps for iPhone and Android smartphones.
The mobile interactive timeline, one of the core planning tools that thousands of project managers rely on, inherits the key functions from Wrike's web app. Even when they're on the go, users can easily browse project plans from a bird's-eye view or in more detail, and quickly adjust them with a few taps. Just like on the Gantt chart in Wrike's web app, mobile users can reschedule tasks by dragging and dropping them, convert them to milestones, and change other details, for example, assignees.
Ready for installation from the App Store and Google Play, users can also, in three easy steps, configure Wrike's free mobile app to receive push notifications of project updates. As with the software's web-based version, schedule changes are readily visible in real-time to all team members.
"When it comes to productivity of information workers, the two most important technological advances of the last decade are the cloud and mobile. Mobility is a trend that has an unstoppable power and it’s only growing bigger. Our goal can be described in a simple way – to provide information workers with the best collaboration experience, whether they are working on their desktop or on their phones. Whatever makes their life easier, that's what we'll do," said Andrew Filev, Wrike's CEO. "A Gantt chart is a simple and powerful planning tool. When things are moving fast, you might want to react to changes instantly, having real-time access to project schedules at any time and being able to adjust deadlines on the fly for the whole team. So, we responded to workers' ever-increasing mobility by literally bringing their favorite planning feature into their pockets."
