Wrike, one of the fastest growing cloud-based project management tools with over one million users worldwide, is now to include new integrations into Office 365 and Azure Active Directory. Users can now download Wrike from the Office 365 app store and use Office 365 to interact with their Wrike workflows and real-time tasks from applications like Word and Powerpoint.
In addition, an integration with Microsoft Azure Active Directory allows single sign-on (SSO) and allows IT to set Wrike management and access controls.
The Office 365 add-in allows Wrike contributors to produce and collaborate with their teams on documents in Office 365 and connect their work directly to overall project objectives, workflow and timelines. Additionally, users will be able to attach Office 365 documents to new or existing Wrike tasks, update Wrike task descriptions, assignees, status and due dates directly from Word or PowerPoint, review and add comments for team review and get access to real-time comments and project status.
Commenting on the new integrations, founder and CEO of Wrike, Andrew Filev said. “The partnership between Microsoft and Wrike 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 organise, share, and move work forward,”
Adding, “Bringing Wrike and Microsoft together will result in clearer communication and faster decision making - the benchmark for agile teams.”
