If you’re having issues with Wrike and looking for a better solution, or, if you’ve never tried Wrike but are on the hunt for project management software, make sure to consider Gryffin. Our project management platform does everything Wrike can, better than Wrike can. Plus, it adds new features into the mix that you won’t find with Wrike or any other software program.
Don’t Make it Difficult
To start with, many users find Wrike to be overly complex and difficult to use.
When their business chooses Wrike, employees are often faced with a lengthy and confusing instruction manual on how to use it. They have to spend time getting used to the system and learning how to navigate it, which means less time spent on work and reduced efficiency, the very last things you’d want or expect from a project management software.
Employees have to sort through confusing codes, often struggle to find projects, and find it difficult to check up on the status of their projects. Even worse, many report that doing simple things, like viewing tasks or making changes to the calendar, is difficult and confusing.
Let’s be honest. Who has time for all that? Most businesses don’t. In fact, they invest in project management software to make their jobs easier, not harder. If you want a simpler solution that everyone can use intuitively, Gryffin is the way to go.
With Gryffin, you can easily oversee all your projects with just a few simple clicks. View tasks, timelines, and even emails all from one platform. And, best of all, you don’t need a complex instruction manual. Gryffin is self-explanatory in how it works, and our support team is readily available if you have questions.
Beat the Bloat
Wrike, like many other project management software programs, is filled with stuff that’s often called “bloatware.” These are features and programs that sound great and impressive on paper, but that, in the real world, have very little use or value.
Of course, many of these features weren’t intended to waste your time and take up space. The problem comes from the fact that a lot of software is designed to have a broad appeal and to work for every client, but that’s just not reality. Software that tries to take a one-size-fits-all approach often fails miserably since every business and how it operates is so different and unique.
That’s why, with Gryffin, we let you work the way you want. In fact, you even design the templates and functionalities that work for you. And, don’t worry. It’s super simple! Using our drag and drop workflow and template builders, you easily and instantly customize and transform Gryffin from our project management system to your project management system, designed for you, by you.
A common complaint about Wrike is that it doesn’t work with any other software or with other commonly used programs.
This means that everyone within a business has to be using Wrike for every aspect of their projects, or there’s going to be confusion and hassle.
If someone, for example, insists on using Google Docs or Slack or some other common work program, there’s no way to integrate these things into the Wrike software. So, sharing and communication would have to happen outside of the Wrike system, which can be confusing, especially if not everyone has access to the same programs and tools.
You don’t have to worry about any of these things with Gryffin, though. To start with, we integrate seamlessly with some of the top programs used in the business world. Just a few of our integration capabilities include:
- A Chrome extension that allows you to upload your emails from Gmail to Gryffin
- Google Drive Integration so you can see all your project files, spreadsheets, presentations, and more
- Google Calendar Integration that keeps you from ever missing a deadline again
- Dropbox Integration for easy file uploading and sharing
- Slack Extension to create tasks directly from you slack conversations
- Stripe Extension to create projects from payments
You can even integrate your inbox to work with Gryffin. This makes it easy to assign emails to a project, enabling all communication between clients, vendors, and employees to be seen by everyone involved in the project. From the initial email down to every last reply and forward, you can see it all in one place. You can even create projects directly from email, and you can work right in your inbox or in the Gryffin platform.
There is no easier way to keep everyone in the loop and on the same page than working with Gryffin.
