San Jose, CA, United States, 2011/12/06 - Wrike boosts the experience of collaborative document management by enabling workers to save documents from desktop office software straight back to the cloud project management app without re-uploads - Wrike.com.
Today, Wrike, a leading provider of social project management software, announces a powerful product enhancement that redefines the ease and efficiency of working on project-related documents in the cloud. Now it takes users just one click to open a document, attached to a task in Wrike, in their desktop office software and get the new version saved straight back to the project management system without the need to keep the updated file locally and re-upload it. This feature saves users’ time on file downloads and re-uploads, eliminates the need to store document copies on computer drives, and lessens annoying confusion over file versions.
“In Wrike, you have all your files at hand in the context of particular tasks, so you don’t need to look for the latest version of a document on your computer, in your mailbox or elsewhere. Files play an enormous role in project collaboration. That’s why a shift to a more convenient, lightweight way for teams to manage them means lots of hours saved and value created,” says Andrew Filev, CEO at Wrike. “I believe this is not only a feature update that gives users fantastic convenience and time-savings when they work with their project-related documents. It’s also a conceptual change in collaborative document management that has the potential to make the transition to the cloud really smooth.”
To make editing of project-related documents as smooth and quick as ever, Wrike leveraged WebDAV technology. Without saving a document on local storage, users have it opened in their desktop office software (e.g., Microsoft Office or OpenOffice.org), and after they make the necessary edits, the new file version is saved back to the appropriate task and project in the cloud without any additional operations. All employees that are involved in working on this task and document immediately have access to the most up-to-date version. Thus, no matter how many documents a team collaborates on, it’s a matter of a second to get to the necessary one. One more important advantage that makes Wrike’s prominent new feature incredibly easy to use is that Windows users of Microsoft Office can take full advantage of it in any browser without installing any additional plug-ins.
