The key to managing a project effectively is to bring all members of a team together. Collaboration is a cross-functional effort that can encompass personnel from a wide variety of roles and capacities including sales, marketing, IT, customer/client services, design, operations, product development and more. A collaborative project management software must offer the functionality to engage and facilitate all of these various functions. That’s where Wrike and its wide scope of integrations is of significant benefit.
