Wrike is an excellent project management suite. At present though there are few solutions out there that allow you to integrate your accounting software with your project management suite.
Ideally, I would like to see milestones set in Wrike be capable of supporting budgeted costings that could feed directly to your budget in XERO. So as you plan projects your budget would update in XERO.
Then from within Wrike if you could attribute costs to completing a milestone as you go along. This could be done using the tracking category feature that already exists within XERO. As you invest in a project all relevant expenses are given a tracking category ID and this information is passed to Wrike - then comparisons could be made between project budgets and true expenditure to date.
No small undertaking, I appreciate, but Wrike is definitely the strongest project management suite out there in terms of intuitive functionality which I believe is also an objective of XERO.
Currently, only Mavenlink offer this functionality as a collaboration with Quickbooks, which personally I feel is awful, so if XERO are considering anything along these lines then perhaps Wrike would be a good idea.
Wrike has the facility to manage time spent on tasks at present so time tracking is there already.
Agreed would be hugely powerful - wrike then becomes your defacto business management platform with budget management built into task and workflow. Why has no one done this properly yet? Workflowmax appears to offer it but is apparently much weaker than Wrike on the PM side
Hi, i have been using Wrike for more than 5 years and its great. The only issue i found with it was the Gantt Charts. For my international teams I had to shift to 5pm web. Has anyone faced the same problem.
