Wrike's social project management software for enterprises now features new reporting capabilities designed to help leaders and participants better visualize project workloads and progress.

The new features are available for Wrike Enterprise, which is the most sophisticated of the three versions of the cloud product and which can be used to manage projects involving thousands of people and resources across an organization.

The new features include the ability to create more detailed dashboards for projects, with activity streams and graphs, as well as generate custom reports zeroing in on specific aspects of a project and team. It's also now possible to share dashboards and reports with colleagues. Another new visualization tool automatically estimates the completion time of a project.

"We had a simple dashboard, but now we offer more sophisticated capabilities in that area," said Andrew Filev, Wrike's CEO and founder.

Wrike Enterprise has also been integrated with Okta's identity management product and supports the SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) authentication and authorization standard, so its users can log into it via their companies' single sign-on system. In addition, it's now possible for customers to replace the Wrike logo with their company's brand to customize their workspaces.

The Wrike product combines project management and social collaboration so customers can use it to plan and track project tasks while also letting participants interact via discussions, email, file sharing, activity streams and other such methods.

As such, Wrike's software mixes structured task management with the free-form interaction of enterprise social networking suites, a combination that's become popular in recent years in the broader enterprise collaboration market.

Wrike, which is privately held and was founded in 2006, has about 100 employees and has raised $10 million in funding. It has about 6,000 paying customers, including Adobe, EMC, Ticketmaster and Hilton.

Wrike Enterprise, which is sold in on-premises and cloud editions, can be integrated and used with third-party products including Outlook, Apple Mail, Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, Microsoft Project, Excel and IBM Connections. It costs an average of $25 per user, per month.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
