Awesome platform that's only getting better

Overall, using Mavenlink has been great - it has made a very positive impact on day-to-day functions as a business. I would recommend it highly to agencies for its flexibility and extensive functionality to manage resources and projects.

PROS

The reporting functionality Mavenlink offers is extensive and has enabled us to get much better visibility to our project, program, portfolio and resourcing data. Which in turn has allowed us to set/adjust our KPI/KRIs and better inform business decisions with the data we have available. In using Mavenlink how it's meant to be used, not only have we improved our business practices but our PMO has gained valuable insight into important aspects of the business that were previously siloed. The fact that Mavenlink actually continues to improve its platform based on user feedback is a massive plus, as new functionality becomes available to better utilize the platform.

CONS

There are some small (very small in most cases) problems we have with some functionality i.e. the naming/categorization of metrics in the reporting suite could be clearer, when approving/rejecting timesheets, adding a comment to a specific entry would be preferable, rather than the comment being published to all entries.

Reason for choosing Kantata

Fitted to our budget and offered functionality we saw as essential to resource management.

Reasons for switching to Kantata

Budgetary reasons mainly but we also needed a platform that would allow us to manage resources more efficiently as well.

Kantata is a great way to handle project/task management for your business.

A great way to monitor and build your project management, tasks. Simply and easy to use application.

PROS

It has multiple ways to use for project management, task scheduling and follow-up, many other things unlike available applications.

CONS

For me it is doing the job required and I have never faced an issue with the system at all. Maybe it could require some work on the interface on the mobile.

Reason for choosing Kantata

Could not find all the features required as found in Kantana

Reasons for switching to Kantata

Cost is acceptable, support is great.

Disappointed

Not great.

PROS

Very robust. And I like that time tracking is integrated into the software.

CONS

For the price, and for what we THOUGHT we could do, very disappointed with the tool to date. Good chance we're moving away from Mavenlink before the next renewal.

Reasons for switching to Kantata

We thought Mavenlink could help us fix the capacity/utilization problem we were having. Honestly, minimal progress as been made and we're likely moving back to Asana.

Great System with Some Room for Improvement

PROS

The project tracking, in terms of the timesheet collection and revenue management this works great for our business and is absolutely essential.

CONS

From an overall user perspective, the system can be quite clunky to use without adequate training which has caused some hiccups.

Effective tool with ease of use and a broad range of features

Very good. We have made suggestions that have been listened to and implemented, we have worked with their customer success team extensively to our benefit. Their help support is excellent when you encounter problems and the software was adaptable to all our needs.

PROS

There is a lot to like about the product. Easy task management with lots of capabilities, time and expense tracking that is simple. Extended resource management options for minute details or broad allocations and a really engaged Customer Success team.

CONS

Not a lot to write here. I think the only issue is that it is hard to use at a hourly scale where you need to set time deadlines in the day.

Reasons for switching to Kantata

WOrkfront was really hard to work with and the reporting was not in depth enough
