A good fit for small enterprises without a PMO or certified PMPs on staff
Mavenlink is a good fit for small enterprises without a PMO or certified PMPs on staff. Its application provides a common sense approach to creating projects and tasks, scheduling, planning, and collaborating in order to complete a project. The secure project area provided by Mavenlink and its approach to email based project messaging ensures projects tasks are not overlooked and are fully visible to all project participants based upon user access rights. This application enables organizations to manage projects without hassle, thereby lowering administrative costs. A key differentiator for Mavenlink in the project management space is its tight financial integration.
