Work and task management tool, Wrike, is now available as a plugin for Microsoft Office 365 products too. It can also be integrated with Microsoft’s cloud-based identity and access management solution, Azure Active Directory.
Wrike, which can be used to create tasks and workflows, can be downloaded directly from the Office 365 app store. Wrike can already be used with other enterprise software like Salesforce, Zapier, Evernote, QuickBook, Slack, HipChat, ZenDesk, Wufoo, WordPress, besides others. It is also available as an independent app in Google Play Store for Android and iTunes App Store for iOS.
Talking about the partnership with Microsoft, Andrew Filev, Founder and CEO of Wrike said, “The partnership is the next step in creating a truly collaborative real-time enterprise where the trusted tools we use to create our work are integrated with dynamic tools we use to organize, share, and move work forward. Bringing Wrike and Microsoft together will result in clearer communication and faster decision making – the benchmark for agile teams.”
