Project management and file sharing has become a bit more collaborative due to a new integration between Wrike and Box.
Improving the Online Workspace
For many companies, online project management and file sharing are done with separate applications. Although an effective approach, there are a few problems that can arise from using two separate tools, such project schedules not being updated with the latest document changes and information getting lost as an employee moves from one application to the other.
By combining its technology with Box, Wrike aims to narrow this gap for those who use the file sharing platform.
Through the integration users will now have a ‘single access point’ for any projects they're working on and their progress, as well as any files needed for those projects including spreadsheets, word documents and images. Also, by combining with Box, Wrike users will now have more collaboration and document management features, including text-co authoring and built-in tables.
We aim to give workers an easy way to connect all work-related data in one hub, so that your business content is always blended in the context of appropriate tasks and this info can be accessed from any device," said Andrew Filev, Wrike's CEO. "Quicker and easier work, increased data accessibility, increased efficiency – this would be just a brief summary of all the benefits users would reap from this two-way integration."
Along with this the Wrike mobile project management apps for Android and iPhone will now be available as part of the Box One Cloud platform so that users don't have to switch between the two apps when working from a mobile device.
Other software that Wrike has integration with include Gmail, Dropbox, IBM Connections, Microsoft Project, and Jive Software.
Wrike and Box in the News
While Wrike has only had one other notable release this year with Live Editor a tool that tracks document changes, Box has a steady stream of new releases, integrations and partnerships over the last few months. These have included, $rev a new service to help enterprise app developers get revenue from the apps they help create, the acquisitions of the Bolster iOS app and Crocodoc, and a partnership with Mobileiron for AppConnect to improve mobile security.
