Great program!

I run a couple creative companies and I've been using a management program the past 5 years. I swear at least once a month I would write them complaining about how the fundamentals of their program didn't work.

Great tool for managing remote teams & freelancers

My previous experience with project management solutions is admittedly limited, having only worked with Asana and a combo of Excel meets GCal. We've been using Jira for a couple weeks now and I'm really happy with it.

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.

Your business needs this program. Period. Its a game changer.

Smartsheet won an award at the 2013 Tech impact Awards for Best Productivity App and I can totally see why. I have been using Smartsheet for three months now and am a huge fan.

Great for Agile dev teams

We moved from Pivotal Tracker to JIRA about a year ago. To be fair, Pivotal Tracker fully met our expectations as a "one size fits all" tool for our product team, and made our collaboration and project tracking overall enjoyable.
