90% Cheaper than Wrike

todo.vu is a Wrike alternative offering a similar range of core features.

Wrike advertises its subscription plans as “starting at $9.80/user per month”; however, Wrike doesn’t offer plans that allow you to pay for one user at a time. So, when you take a closer look, you may find that you are required to pay for more than you really need.

For example, on Wrike’s lowest priced plan, the minimum number of users required is 5, so even if you work alone, you must pay for 5 users. Then, whenever you need to add additional users to your plan, they can only be added in packages of 5.

That means if you have 6 staff, you must pay for 10, and if you have 11 staff you must pay for 15, and so on. Once you surpass 30 users, you must then purchase packs of 10 users at a time, so if you have 31 staff you pay for 40.

And if your team has 20 or more users, you must upgrade to their Business Plan at a higher rate of $24.80/user.

Unfortunately, these prices are billed annually with no refunds. So, if your staff leave, you will continue to pay for the rest of the year for seats you don’t need.

The absolute minimum commitment you can make to Wrike is 5 users on the $9.80 plan for 12 months i.e. $588. Compare that with the $9 minimum commitment for todo.vu!

Let’s look at a couple of real-world cases to explore Wrike’s pricing further.

A graph comparing Wrike and todo.vu as a Wrike alternative in terms of minimum commitment costs.

Cast study 1
Solo Freelancer requiring task management and time tracking

The minimum Wrike plan that offers time tracking features is the Business plan.

The Business plan is billed at $24.80 per user per month. However, even if you are a solo user, you will need to pay for a minimum of 5 staff, and you must pay this fee yearly in advance.

This means that a minimum commitment for Wrike as a solo Freelancer who needs to manage tasks and track time is $124 per month, and your first bill will be $1,488.

Compare that to todo.vu’s commitment of $9/month for our Business Time plan billed monthly. Your first bill will be $9.


That’s a saving of 93% per month. Your upfront commitment is ~200x lower!

Case study 2
A medium team of 60 users requiring task management and time tracking

For a medium team that requires task management and time tracking in Wrike, you will require the Business plan, the monthly cost of which is $24.80 per user, paid yearly in advance. A simple calculation of 60 users times $24.80 per month is $1,488 per month. That means your first bill will be $17,856.

Now, let’s compare that with todo.vu’s pricing. Our Business Time plan is $9 per user per month, but we cap our pricing at 11 seats. That means that $99 per month is the most you are going to pay, regardless of how many users you require past 11. And, we allow you to pay this monthly.

Your first bill with todo.vu will be $99.

That works out at a 93% saving per month. And of course, if your team is larger, then the savings will be even greater.

~90% Cheaper Wrike Alternative

So, what’s the catch?

Now that we have your attention, we need to be completely transparent. While Wrike and todo.vu serve similar purposes, and while todo.vu is in many cases a suitable Wrike alternative, they are not identical.

todo.vu is ~90% cheaper than Wrike, but it also has fewer features than Wrike has, so it’s not completely fair to compare them only on price.

We recommend that you look closely at the features of both products to decide what is important to you before making a final decision.

Here are a few things that stand out:

  • todo.vu has not yet published our API and have fewer integrations
  • todo.vu doesn’t provide a Gantt chart yet, though we do provide a Kanban view for managing your tasks
  • todo.vu does not allow custom fields or workflows
  • todo.vu is only available in English

todo.vu is still young and growing, and we are adding features based on user feedback all the time. Over time we expect to close the gap on Wrike, but we also don’t want todo.vu to turn into a bloated complicated and expensive product.

todo.vu will always deliver the critical functionality you need to run your business in a simple intuitive way at a very affordable price.

If you are looking for an alternative to Wrike then you should check out todo.vu.

If your business has some very specific requirements that only Wrike delivers, then perhaps you will just have to pay the other 90%. But I would encourage you to take a good look at todo.vu and decide if it will work for you.
