With 13,000+ organizations and more than 1M+ users, Wrike is one of the biggest providers of a project management tool on the market.
What Wrike says:

Wrike works completely web-based with access from any web browser or mobile device (App). For the login you can use your own account, Google account, Office 365 account or your Company credentials (SSO).
Look & Feel
When you login, you have a very clear and structured overview of your options.
On the left side, you can find the menu with Inbox, My Work, Dashboard, Stream, Reports and Projects, on the right side a customizable dashboard where you can add your personal overview, or the overview of your team. You can search a task and create a new task/request at the plus button easily.
The first option in the menu is the inbox where you receive all information from your team, notifications, news etc.
In My Work, you see your tasks of the day, the week, next week and later. You can create new tasks with one click or have a look at the tasks.
At the Dashboard, you can see which tasks are new, in progress or completed. You can also find your team ones.
Stream is like a blog or an activity stream where you can see what happens in your team or the tasks you follow.
On Reports, you can create a customized report of your projects, tasks, overdue tasks, unassigned tasks etc.
On projects, you can see all projects you are involved in or projects created privately for yourself.
