In today’s highly digital world, a lot can go wrong with a business process – from the emails that get delayed and fail to go out to the marketing automation that ignores key performance indicators. It’s not easy being fully connected and visible all the time, which is why so many companies struggle to meet business goals while still maintaining a social life.

That’s where Wrike, an online productivity suite, steps in. Wrike is the tool Mark S. Olson, founder and former CEO of Logical Equation, used to get through the workday. While on the surface, Wrike looks like a very basic task app – with a to-do list, calendar, and notifications – it goes far beyond what most task apps can offer. With Wrike, you can configure automated workflows, track real-time progress, and analyze your key performance indicators from one place, all while collaborating with colleagues and customers across different time zones and devices.

Wrike is a tool that helps business owners, executives, and teams keep their heads out of their phones more and focus on what’s important for results. Whether you’re a manager, an entrepreneur, or an employee – if you’re reading this, you might be looking for ways to improve your workday, increase your productivity, and get things done.

Cutting Edge Technology

The key to getting things done quickly and accurately with Wrike is the hybrid cloud computing technology it uses. Traditional cloud computing offers a lot of advantages, such as on-demand scalability, elasticity, and the benefits of larger datacenters. However, it also has its disadvantages, such as security and privacy concerns, among others.

Hybrid cloud computing offers the best of both worlds – the speed and scalability of a traditional cloud computing service combined with the security and privacy of a data center located in your own infrastructure. That makes it a popular choice for large-scale businesses or governmental entities.

Simple And Intuitive

Wrike keeps things simple and intuitive by utilizing common terms and short cuts. For example, you can create a task with a due date and automatically set a deadline for it. You can also mark items as done and get a pleasant reminder when a task is finished. To make things even easier for customers, Wrike uses color coding and icons to represent different task statuses – green for completed, yellow for in-progress, and red for overdue.

Get Things Done

One of the main goals of Wrike is to help you get things done. For that reason, the tool offers a to-do list function, which is a collection of tasks and subtasks that you can organize and view in a single place. You can add notes to items to keep track of your progress or collaborate with team members by sharing to-do lists.

The calendar feature in Wrike is quite versatile; it supports multiple views, including a Gantt chart that displays your tasks and estimates, along with their corresponding dates. In addition, you can create multiple calendars and distribute them among your team members so everyone can keep track of different project timelines and plans.

As you might expect, notifications are integral to Wrike and help you stay on top of things. You can set up email alerts for different types of notifications – such as new tasks or assignments, comments on an item you’re working on, or changes to an existing task – so you can check your email frequently and respond quickly when necessary. You can also use the notification settings to send items directly to specific team members or members of your household, as well as receive individualized briefings from one of Wrike’s AI companions – Samantha, Clio, or Charlemagne.

Samantha, the AI-powered assistant that builds on the notifications feature, can answer questions, perform tasks, and provide relevant information – all without being asked. For example, when you’re creating a task and want to know what time it will be finished, you can ask Samantha for an estimate and set a due date. She’ll then keep you updated on the status of the task, as well as provide you with helpful information about other items you’re working on, projects you might need access to, and more.

More Than You Might Expect

Other features on Wrike that you might not expect to find include video calling, online storage, and a marketplace. For that matter, you can even create a task, set a due date, and begin work – then, when you’re done, simply add a comment and hit save. The task will be stored in the cloud, and you’ll receive an email confirming its creation. This makes it easier to track progress and ensure that everyone knows what’s going on – as long as you have an Internet connection, you can always access your tasks from anywhere.

Online storage is a necessary evil in today’s world. Whether you need to back up your own data, collaborate with colleagues, or just want to keep a copy of important documents, online storage is a viable option. You can utilize services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive to save files online, and you can access them from anywhere using your web browser. In addition, you can also save and open files in other software (e.g., Microsoft Office, Google Sheets, and others) – as long as everyone has the link, it’s easy to access from anywhere.

Wrike’s marketplace is an integrated shopping cart that can be found at the top of every task page. The marketplace allows you to create task-based shopping lists, which you can then share with your team members. Your shopping lists can contain items from multiple brands and catalogs so it’s easy to find what you need even if you’re not sure what it’s called or where you might have it stowed away. Once you’ve found the item you need, you can add it to your shopping list and continue searching for other items that may be on your list.

Getting things done efficiently and accurately is a keystone to productivity. While there are dozens of task apps on the market, not all of them can keep up with the demands of a busy business or household. Wrike stands out from the crowd with its simple, intuitive design and cutting edge technology. It seamlessly integrates with your email, calendar, and phone to form a single source of truth for all your to-do’s. With Wrike, being busy doesn’t have to mean being chaotic – it can actually be a good thing.
