One of Wrike’s strengths is its intuitive UI. Its 3-pane dashboard gives us visibility on three levels at once project, task and subtasks. We just love the flexibility it gives us in however we need to view the team’s progress: bird’s eye view or drill-down to individual tasks. For design, we give Wrike project management software 9.5 over 10.

I would score the features a solid 9 out of 10. There won’t be many other project management solutions that work on any platform with these kind of features and especially not online tools!
