Wrike Practical Project Management
Wrike is an on-demand, Web-based project management application. Wrike helps users save time on planning, processing, tracking and completing their projects. Due to its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) nature, Wrike online project management remains very competitive when compare to the cost of implementing an enterprise project management suite.
Wrike Corporation position itself as the leading provider of on-demand project management software for small and midsize companies. It is a privately held corporation located in Silicon Valley, USA and founded by Andrew Filev who is its current CEO and manages to maintain a blog called Project Management 2.0 with his views on the subject. Wrike has offered its services for more than 5 years.
Some of Wrike key features include: manage multiple projects, view Gantt charts, apply several work-breakdown structures, add tasks, files and comments from email accounts, share any kind of file, access tasks through iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry apps, log time spent on each task, nothing to install or update since Wrike is web-based.

Their website is available in both English and Spanish, which implies that Wrike supports both languages.
Wrike also positions its on-demand software as a Practical Project Management solution. Their integration of email into the project management environment proposes a new formula similar to what social networks are doing. If you happen to be using Microsoft Project, Wrike can import your Microsoft Project data as well.
