2016 - Wrike launched project management tool for marketers to keep up with Smartsheet

Project management service Wrike is looking at how it can better serve certain verticals through more specialized products. With Wrike for Marketers, the company launched the first of its new vertical solutions this week. Targeting marketers was an easy choice because 40 percent of the company’s new revenue is already coming from this vertical. Unsurprisingly, the product was designed around the typical marketing workflow, which often revolves around briefs, requests, assignments, reviews and approvals. The Wrike team also noticed that a lot of the creative work in marketing agencies happens in Adobe tools like Photoshop and InDesign. To integrate these into Wrike, the company built an extension for the Adobe Creative Cloud that brings some of Wrike’s features right into Adobe’s tools.
