WrikeWrike last week has unveiled a new freemium version of its award-winning practical project management platform that delivers full-featured work graph management to organizations of any size on any budget. What makes it more appealing is its support for unlimited projects.

The generous offer includes 5 power users who can assign and delegate project tasks with an unlimited number of collaborators who can access tasks, attach files, make comments and mark complete. On top of that the product fremium version also supports unlimited number of projects unlike many other solutions that block either number of users who can access the software or support only limited projects.

While Wrike has a powerful customer base including the likes of Salesforce, EMC, Accenture, unicef to name just a few of over 2000, this move will enable small businesses to access and use a free project management software with powerful features. Wrike Freemium delivers robust task management beyond the basics, including advanced scheduling, real-time discussion and collaboration in activity streams, selective project and task sharing capabilities with built-in access control for each user, and drag-and-drop prioritizing. The system integrates seamlessly with ubiquitous office productivity tools, including email, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Microsoft Excel and Project. Mobile apps for iPhone and iPad make keeping up and staying on target easy for the entire team, preventing tasks from lingering in limbo when team members are traveling or working remotely.

For customers who would like to convert from freemium version to paid version, Wrike offers advanced features like Gantt Chart, Workload management, Microsoft Outlook integration and time tracking capabilities. This will fuel the company's growth further with a good percentage of freemium customers moving to paid versions over time.

Wrike will also announced a new translation platform that allows any volunteer to register and contribute to translating the text from the UI into any language. Since end users know the context of the system perfectly well, making this process user-driven ensures higher accuracy of the translation. Users can add new translations, as well as edit the existing ones. Wrike's user interface is also available in Spanish, Czech, Russian, Portuguese and Japanese besides English.
