Wrike Inc., a leading social project management software provider, was named a Finalist in the New Product or Service of the Year - Computer Software - New Version category in the 2011 American Business Awards (The Stevies).
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
More than 2,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in more than 40 categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year. Wrike is nominated in the New Product or Service of the Year category for Computer Software.
Wrike is the leading cloud collaboration software that blends full-featured project management with friendly social networking features and deeply integrates with email. Offering its service for more than five years now, Wrike has won over thousands of customers, ranging from local nonprofits to international business leaders, such as Ecco, eBay and Salesforce, that rely on Wrike in managing their teams, projects and businesses in the cloud.
At the 2011 American Business Awards, Wrike applied its new, social version. With the new version, Wrike.com has become the first social project management software on the market to bring the collaborative benefits of social networks to a full-featured project management solution. This powerful combination allowed Wrike to develop an efficient, flexible and easy-to-use platform for getting work done together. The more projects and tasks people bring into Wrike, the more value they get out of it, instead of getting buried in the information. Even with thousands of tasks, Wrike users feel comfortable and productive, with everything accessible in a couple of clicks.
"I love this software [Wrike]. It’s taken a formula that people have come familiar with – social networking like Facebook – and applied it to a business scenario. Genius,” says Neil Robinson, strategy consultant at LANZen Ltd. and a loyal Wrike customer."
The 2011 American Business Awards finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. Details about The American Business Awards and the list of Finalists in all categories are available at stevieawards.com/aba.
