Our Mission is to deliver the best online service that will let you manage your business easily via email and the Web anytime, anywhere.
Wrike Corporation began with an idea that the way people collaborate on their projects and the way they manage them can be improved. We know that keeping plans and information in dozens of disconnected files and using complex project management tools can be a real challenge. That is why we decided to create agile, online project management software. The software is easy to use and lets people keep everything in one place. We wanted it to combine the benefits of email communication, simple project planning and online file sharing. Later on, the original idea transformed into what now is known as Wrike, the one-of-a-kind project management software that helps you manage you business via email and the Web.
After two years of extensive research and development, Wrike was released to go public in the summer of 2006. In 2007, Wrike's development resulted in phenomenal growth of its user base: now 8 times bigger than in the beginning of the year.
