Great live support

We've just recently switched from Basecamp to Mavenlink. I had trouble linking my expense accounts from QuickBooks into Mavenlink.

OK for simple projects

We've been diehard fans for the 3 years we've been using it, and it does a lot of things really well. We've gotten to the point where the shortcomings have really started to cramp our style, though, and it's time to move on..

The Most Critical Review

MavenlinkProject Management & Planning
Nate Nordstrom, Founder @ BrandHoot & RochesterNow app; Ambassador at Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce6th of June, 2014 17:53

Not impressed. Wasted money.

Mavenlink has over-promised and under-delivered in a key way for my team. This has resulted in $1400+ being wasted on a tool that we will not use.
