Wrike Adds Fourth Feature to New Resource Management Tool
Wrike launched a resource management solution last November as an add-on to its current product. Wrike called it “Wrike Resource” and recently added the often-disputed timesheet to the feature list. The full list of features includes:
- Workload Charts
- Task Effort
- Mass Enable Effort
It’s no secret that organizations are challenged when it comes to tracking time spent on work and for any number of reasons, timesheets are often not a realistic option. It will be interesting to witness anything new in regards to the adoption of timesheets using Wrike Resource.
At first glance Wrike’s resource management add-on looked like a portfolio function, but it seems that it is actually for mangers to balance the workload of their project teams. If accurate, the data collected from timesheets can be useful but we have seen little evidence of our clients reconiling that data at the portfolio level.
