Over 20,000 new firms tried these powerful updates in action and got the feel of the benefits they bring to their workflow.
United by a common vision of changing the way work gets done, Wrike partnered up with Jive, the leader in the enterprise social software space. Wrike became available through the Jive Apps Market to thousands of Jive customers looking for an efficient way to manage their projects and collaborate on them easily right in Jive. In a few months, Wrike announced a partnership with Google and the launch of its application on the Google Apps Marketplace™, Google's online storefront for Google Apps™ products and services. During the first month after the release, Wrike got 1,000+ installs and was the most popular new application. With these integrations implemented in 2011, Wrike moved further with its mission of connecting people’s work in one spot and introducing new, efficient ways of getting things done where employees are already used to working.
To make Wrike the most helpful project management software, we listen closely to our customers to know about the needs and the challenges they face. And when they tell us that they became more efficient with Wrike’s help, that’s when we know that our efforts yield great results! Past year was a very eventful one for our company. Live Outlook add-in, mobile apps, document editing without downloads and re-uploads – these updates have become the favorite features for a lot of Wrike users, which makes each of these releases special. We also were thrilled that Wrike got such a warm welcome from users of the Google Apps Marketplace™, which resulted in our ranking as the top new app,” comments Andrew Filev, Wrike CEO, on the achievements of the company in 2011.
