Companies that focus on operational efficiency while investing in the future, report ten percent higher growth than their competitors.

Through streamlined IT operations, modernised IT procurement and vendor management, more flexible workplaces, and increased agility, Wrike and Citrix Workspace can help IT meet business demands faster and bridge physical and digital worlds for a better, more efficient employee experience.
Streamline IT operations
Citrix Workspace and Wrike are critical assets in helping organisations modernise IT operations. Wrike provides a central environment for IT organisations to manage enhancement requests, address bug fixes, and improve incident response. Citrix Workspace enables communication to employees about incidents and application maintenance windows and provides a platform for employees to report issues and IT managers to triage escalations. When an issue escalates, Wrike gives IT a collaborative environment for the team to resolve the issue, with templates available to support responses to specific incident types, ensuring faster, more effective resolutions. On the back end of the incident resolution, IT can standardise the incident resolution documentation to improve compliance and knowledge building. Business intelligence capabilities provide the insights needed for management to identify trends and improve operations.

This saves time and eliminates frustration, making it easy to capture issues and share updates in a unified space. There’s no need to toggle among different applications or dig through email.
To take advantage of new business opportunities, companies must adapt and on-board new talent, as well as expand their network to new vendors.
