Pros

It is effective and has a great user interface. The ability to customize the interface with company specifics is very good. Invoices look very professional as well, and are easy to send, save as a .pdf, and attach. I had a billing problem due to a rather complicated ramp up of my licenses, and they were very good to fix it and refund the overage, without any problems.

Cons

The permission levels seem a bit off, and adding people to projects does not always work like it should. There is a work around. I also have not yet been able to integrate it with quickbooks, however I have not yet spent the time with tech help to get that going.

Great product, easy workflow, and integrations with other apps that I use. Their time tracking integration is invaluable to me as I can track the amount of time spent on my tasks and projects and then budget my clients accordingly.

Pros

Their support team is also super helpful. I find this useful as I don't need to train my team members how to use the tool - new hires just got to reach out to their support team.

Cons

Need more integrations with other apps. Probably a Zapier integration would help.

Mavenlink is on its way. Using it feels like they began with good questions about how a robust project management tool SHOULD look and work, and began developing from there. The interface is clean and open and the tools you have access to are head and shoulders above "free" offerings like Asana and Trello.

Pros

Nested task view is awesome, dependencies and Gantt charts are great and the multitude of ways you can parse the data is peerless.

Cons

Their "app" is a web app, with no offline mode. Really disappointed about this one, since we're moving from Asana, who's app is WONDERFUL.

Advice to Others

If you need task dependencies, project start dates, or any sort of budgeting incorporated into your task management, look no further. Otherwise, you may want to dig into the details to see if Mavenlink is right for you.

We use haven link since more than a year now and we can share that a number of insights we gain out of it are highlighting our defects very precisely. We were able to focus on our mistakes and glue solutions where needed. It is versatile too, so you can adapt it to pretty much any situation.

Pros

Features for planning and financial

Cons

A bit heavy to put your hands on at first, but once done you get happier

Advice to Others

Take the time to really run a project from a to z before making a judgment. Sometimes, heavy projects require robust tools that you can't just run with a spreadsheet.

I use this tool as an Engineer, to manage small-large scale technical projects. I find the tasking very helpful, but the navigation and interface is not extremely straightforward. I think there is a lot of functionality that I'm not aware of.

Pros

Ability to categorize and organize tasks; assign estimated hours and budget to each tasks, and view the project status and burn rate throughout the cycle of the project.

Cons

The interface is a bit difficult to navigate- lots of clicks to get to the right place. Unable to log time to a deliverable, and lack of options regarding different task statuses. This might be customizable and I just don't have access to do so. The organization of the different permissions is confusing as well.

Advice to Others

A great deal of assistance was required to build Mavenlink to meet our requirements, and we were very limited on the ability to integrate with our Salesforce system.

Mavanlink is good for managing projects WHEN it works. Initially when I purchased the software I was expecting a smooth sync between Quickbooks and Mavenlink- not the case. I ended up having to convert from Enterprise on my desktop to QB online in order for the sync to happen. That was not an additional task that I signed up for when I purchased the software. Even with the QB online, many times I am unable to create a project from a QB estimate which was the entire reason I purchased the software

Pros

Great for managing projects

Cons

Doesn't always sync with quickbooks. Customer service sucks unless you pay for it. Does not have a to-do area, only projects

Advice to Others

Asana is a free project management software that I wish I would have stayed with

Mavenlink had everything our Business Unit was looking for in a Project Management Software.

Pros

It's web based, so many of our Inspectors use it update their records in the field. Great budgeting and forecasting tools. Also has task scheduling, timesheets, charting, and critical path.

Cons

Implementation costs were somewhat high. No Microsoft Project integration.

Advice to Others

If you are a small to mid-sized company I'd definitely recommend Mavenlink.

We have used this product for over a year and it seems to be the most cost effective software for construction and inspection firms looking to track the progress of projects. We have used this program with ease and kept all of our projects organized and on time.

Pros

Customer Service. Ease of use.

Cons

Projects auto populate at 10 per page. You have to select the option to populate more every time you go to the projects page. I would like it to auto populate the entire list on the projects page.

Mavenlink is hands down the most full featured solution for project management.

We've tried just about every major application, and as developers & designers all of them are equally easy to use. However, Mavenlink's big win is the fact that you don't need to be a developer to understand the interface, and you don't need to have project management experience to understand how projects work and how to collaborate with a team online.

It's truly the perfect solution for any business that has short and long-term projects where clients need to be involved in the process the entire time. There is no learning curve, and the friction is so low on the client end that adoption is just wonderful - there really is no training or explanation necessary.

Pros

Easy to use interface
Project update email alerts

Cons

I wish it had scheduling software built-in.
