Wrike vs. monday.com compared
Go above and beyond a project management platform: monday.com is no-code/low-code Work OS that serves as the perfect Wrike alternative, with more ways to organize your tasks and projects—and less of a steep learning curve. From traditional to Agile project management, you and your team members can create workflows in real-time without the need for professional services.
What can monday.com offer over Wrike?
The time drain of updates and approvals of task management can be a real filibuster for teams. Wrike offers automations as a part of their project management solution. However, they must be built on the account, not individual projects—users are also limited to 100 per account. In contrast, monday.com’s Standard plan starts with 250 actions each month and the Pro Plan has 25,000 actions for integrations each month.
monday.com’s signup and setup experience is as frictionless as using our drag-and-drop building blocks to build everything from project plans to Gantt charts. Our platform is designed to get you started quickly with the features you need the most. Wrike’s UI/UX can be pretty complicated for first-timers and could require additional professional services—which are not included in their Enterprise plan. monday.com offers 24/7 support and built in features like templates to empower users right away.
Wrike’s third-party tool integrations are paid add-ons rather than included as a part of their product, which has the potential to make them more difficult to set up. This could slow down completion of assigned tasks, which is the opposite of what you want in a project management tool! Our dozens of integrations allow you to seamlessly connect monday.com to external platforms using thoughtful predefined integration flows.
Large and small teams alike know just how important juggling and managing time and dates across multiple projects can be—and Wrike can pose certain challenges for that. For example, Wrike offers time- tracking in their subitems, but it doesn’t calculate into the parent item, so you’ll have to manually add these values. You also can’t add times to your due dates, which is an essential detail for many team’s work. monday.com doesn’t have these limitations.
