San Jose, CA, United States, 2010/12/16 - Wrike unveils an open development platform that enables software vendors, third-party developers and enthusiastic project managers to create custom applications integrated with Wrike’s innovative software for project management and collaboration.
Today Wrike launched an open development platform that enables building new software applications on top of Wrike’s rich project collaboration features. Now, Wrike’s customers from over 50 countries can unify business processes by integrating Wrike’s powerful software with other business applications they use. The release of the new platform also opens up great opportunities to independent software developers who can now easily extend their solutions to the project collaboration market.
“Now, anyone can plug into rich collaboration and work management features of Wrike and create custom applications. For instance, these can be mobile applications or resource management charts. The platform also enables building integration with various data sources, like Salesforce, SharePoint, Google AdWords and many others,” explains Andrew Filev, CEO at Wrike. A successful example of implementing the platform’s functionality is Wrike’s integration with Microsoft Outlook, which automatically synchronizes action items from the two applications and increases the efficiency of task management.
Prior to the public release, some of Wrike customers have already started using the integration opportunities brought by the new development platform. “The platform provides an easy way to unite Wrike’s project management capabilities with the other systems we and our clients rely on. Right now, we’re building an integration that will enable transferring contacts and tasks from BatchBook, a powerful social CRM application, into Wrike. With the data brought together in one spot, the customer relations teams will definitely gain in efficiency while planning follow-ups, tracking leads and closing deals,” says Kurt Milam, VP of Software and Internet Services at Xioup, a fast-growing Web development company.
The platform’s development capabilities can be leveraged for a vast number of business collaboration scenarios. Service providers can get automated billing by integrating with Wrike’s time-tracking feature. Software development teams may integrate the bug-tracking or source control solution with their project plans and feature backlogs. Any company can build industry-specific integrations, customized to its particular needs and aligned with its existing work processes.
Wrike’s development platform for project collaboration consists of seven API modules that can help to streamline business processes in managing project hierarchies, tasks, documents, people and work time. The platform’s capabilities allow to smoothly export data from Wrike to external applications, as well as to import data from other tools. Just like Wrike’s software itself, the development platform is very easy to use.
