If you ever use a Google Docs to collaborate with a colleague, you probably know, what I am talking about. Wrike offers a similar experience, called Colour Coding – you see in the real time, changes performed by your co-workers. It helps companies to increase collaboration, overcome the chaos, and improve planning.

The Idea is simple, you have Folders, Projects and Tasks.
Folder helps you to organize the structure – it’s works like a container. The Project has its owner, date, and status, and it’s role is to contain many tasks which are connected with the same goal. Finally the Task allows you to keep a track of changes, call to action and informs you who is in charge.

Wrike offers a custom workflows, requests for the teams and many moore.
