San Jose, CA, United States, 2011/06/09 - Leading Analyst Firm includes Wrike's award-winning software as a project collaboration workspace application in the research note "PPM Market UNIVERSE: Techniques and Tools for Project Collaboration".
This year, Gartner recognized project collaboration as an integral part of effective project portfolio management and included a special report on collaboration tools in PPM Market Universe. The research is focused on reviewing techniques and tools for organizing the work of vitrutal teams. The world’s leading IT research and advisory company reviews Wrike’s project collaboration workspace application.
It is impossible to underestimate the importance and scope of remote collaboration. According to Gartner,“By 2015, 75 percent of knowledge-based project work in the Global 2000 will be completed by distributed virtual teams.” This trend isn’t new; however, not everyone has adjusted to it, and in many companies with virtual teams,“the collaboration infrastructure is something that happened by accident, rather than design,” as the research note states. These companies are still looking for an efficient solution to handle the challenges of virtual collaboration. Wrike’s powerful social features help teams efficiently collaborate even if they can’t have regular face-to-face meetings and direct communication.
A recent case study shows how inlevel, a successful IT company awarded with a European Union innovation grant, has found in Wrike an easy and efficient way to collaborate virtually with 20+ external partners from other cities and countries. Wrike has become an easily accessible central hub for the team that accumulates project data and takes off the managers’ shoulders a big share of administrative work, such as updating the plans, informing the team of the deadlines and more.
"The way the data automatically flows into Wrike’s workspace keeps us all organized because we always know where to find the info that we need, and I don’t need to spend time and effort on communicating the plan updates to the team members," comments Maciej Janiec, CEO at inlevel.
Offering its project management and collaboration service for more than five years, Wrike has become an irreplaceable tool not only for inlevel, but for thousands customers all over the globe, including such internationally renowned brands as Ecco, eBay, Kraft Foods and Salesforce. “A lot of Wrike customers deal with a distributed workforce, and their experience of achieving fantastic results through remote collaboration, even when miles and time zones separate colleagues, is the best proof that Wrike is a perfect match for virtual teams. Every day, more and more teams get the maximum efficiency in remote collaboration with Wrike,” says Andrew Filev, CEO at Wrike.
