Mavenlink Software


 

Mavenlink offers software and services for project management, resource planning, collaboration and financial management. It was designed for professional services, and it is best suited for those who need to collaborate on teams.

Mavenlink's emphasis is on team collaboration and task management. Files are stored and shared with the team on Mavenlink and can be tagged to specific tasks.

Mavenlink offers support for resource management, time and expense tracking and management, planning and reports and analytics. Its design relies on a single navigation bar which links to key areas of the platform. The centralized dashboard keeps users updated on the most recent activity and progress of each project.

Mavenlink integrates with many popular applications, such as Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, JIRA and Zendesk. Its Chrome plugin assigns tasks based on emails, and its QuickBooks integration syncs with time and projects.

Mavenlink is ideal for professional services businesses, especially in the marketing, advertising, public relations, architecture, engineering, IT services, management consulting and educational industries.

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.

It has some great features. The Gantt chart probably the most interesting one. But you cant make it count weekends as workdays, ans has the most horrible customer support i ever experienced.

Pros

If you find another good option with Gantt, dont invest in this one.

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.

Mavenlink is designed around the idea of scalability and works well for midsize companies who expect to grow in size and in project totals or complexity. It also has a really nice client facing functionality with awesome proofing capabilities for creative agencies.

Pros

The customer support is amazing. They really make a commitment to partner Witt you to grow your business.

Cons

It's a complex software so the learning curve is a little steeper than with other programs.

The technology that Mavenlink is built on is powerful, both in terms of speed and design ethos. Time-tracking and task management features are strong.

Likes Least

Initial appearances indicate a high degree of customizability, but the design is fairly restrictive on the whole. Creating custom reporting is very complicated and not intuitive. Mavenlink support's responsiveness to feature requests is not impressive.

Recommendations

Jump into a trial and run a project from start to finish. If you are happy with how everything was handled, Mavenlink will be a good solution. If you find yourself wishing that it worked differently, don't expect that you'll necessarily "figure out a solution" or that it will eventually work the way you want.

The vendor was the most helpful out of all the software we evaluated. They were more than happy to supply all security documentation our paranoid IT department demanded.

Likes Least

Takes a little time to set up but most comprehensive project management tools do, so this is less a criticism than an insight into my motivation levels for admin tasks...

Recommendations

A great start to understanding what you business is actually producing at any given moment.

From the trial, I think this a good way to organize and complete larger products. We have not joined completely yet as we are still dceiling how many people will be using the software.

Likes Least

Nothing yet. All personnel I was in.touch with were helpfull.and knowledgeable. We are still learning the product so my ratins may reflect lack of knowledge more than not liking it.

Recommendations

Evaluate your needs and what you are looking to do with the software. We have a small number of people that will use the software so this will be more affordable yet still give us good tools to use.

When I first was introduced to this system I was thrilled to see that every need that I had, in terms of project management tracking was met with the capabilities of this system. It has endless amounts of functionality.

Likes Least

After my first tour of the system I was a little overwhelmed. I think it would be best to start with a demo of the basic system and progress if more functionality is required.

Recommendations

Start with the basic version. Once you are comfortable using the program assess whether you require any additional features before committing to them.

We have only been using Mavenlink for a little over 3 month and have already started to see visibility and transparency across the organisation. Mavenlink Insights and analytics reports provide the company with a holistic view of all projects and accounts. We are now easily able to identity project metrics and figures without all of the manual collation and reconciliation which takes an enormous amount of time.
Mavenlink have been extremely helpful and accommodating to get us to this point with help of the guys from the MavenOps Program. The 3 months of MavenOps has been fantastic as the team who have been working with us are always willing to help and offer suggestions. Mavenlink were very responsive to our requirements and always willing to help and provide alternate solutions or workarounds if system could meet the requirements.
Additionally MavenOps were very quick at turning around reports that we requested. The reports were completely customised to our needs. If a feature could not be achieved the company can submit a "feature request" which means there is a chance that feature can be built later down the track.
Mavenlinks 24/7 chat support has also been fantastic in helping the wider organisation with any questions.
Overall the software is great but the level of support really helps to lift the product and the overall engagement.

Given we are an Australian based company there are a few things within the software which are set for the US, for example the date is in the wrong sequence and data refreshes happen at awkward times. These are only minor and don't stop us from achieving our main objectives. It would be helpful to have a little more control over these settings.
It would be also good for Super Admin users to have a greater level of visibility. At present even admin need to be invited to a project to view the tasks and approve time etc. It would be helpful for Super Admin users to have this level of visibility with having to rely on a project lead to invite them to a project.

Recommendations

I would highly recommend the software and the service.
Advise I would give would be for the purchasing company to determine their objectives internally before articulating requirements to Mavenlink to ensure the original vision is not lost sight of. Mavenlink will work best if everyone is using the system consistently.

The solution is clearly valuable. It increases our team efficiency, improves quality of time tracking, and makes data for decision making by managers more organized and accessible.

One of their greatest strengths can also be a weakness. They continually roll out meaningful upgrades. My experience is they are well tested, but sometimes the changes require people to adapt to a new way of accessing the same information. You need to be willing to adapt with it. You could not write a manual on how to use mavenlink and think it will stay up to date.

Recommendations

Start with evaluating what the 2-3 core features are that are a must have for your business/team. Determine which applications to consider and assess them based on usability of those features so you know that you break-even and gain value on your investment quickly.

What I like best about Mavenlink is their continued commitment to a quality product. We are constantly getting updates on new features and fixes to kinks in the system.

Likes Least

Our team has found the product very easy to use, but some of our clients have a hard time getting in the swing of things.

Recommendations

Do not rely solely on review sites to give you all of the features of a product. Be sure to go to the companies website and speak with a representative. I also highly recommend doing a trial of at least 3 solutions before deciding on a product to purchase.
