    Great live support

    Jacob Hoehne, Chief Creative Officer, Issimo Productions, inc.3rd of November, 2014 23:02

    We've just recently switched from Basecamp to Mavenlink. I had trouble linking my expense accounts from QuickBooks into Mavenlink. I didn't have much hope at 10 PM for the "Live Help" chat option, but I decided to click it anyway. I was surprised that Linda knew how to address my problem and even took me through steps I needed to do in QB to make it sync with Mavenlink. She was actually knowledgeable and not just reading off of their tech support page (which I had already scoured). My wife walked in as I was finishing the chat session. She said, "I've never heard you say anything positive about tech support." Nope. This is a first.


    Not impressed. Wasted money.

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

    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. We have gone back to our assortment of tools (Asana, Harvest, etc.) which work well even though they are disconnected from one another. My recommendation: do not buy Mavenlink. There are several examples of Mavenlink's failure. One would be the “Light CRM” feature which was promised to me in May by a sales person, and has been “coming soon” for several years (!) according to their team. The forum thread here: https://mavenlink.zendesk.com/entries/330867-Light-CRM-capability They repeatedly states that “it’s a priority” “coming 2nd quarter of this year (2012)” also again saying in 2012 that “A CRM integration and Light CRM within Mavenlink is on our roadmap for this year. We are working hard to release some very exciting enhancements and integrations as quickly as possible to our customer base. On the thread above, people left a comment on Sept. 22 2013 which sums up how I feel regarding the Mavenlink team’s promises and lack of delivery. October 3rd, 2013, Mavenlink says that “we are about to begin development…” Hmm, that was supposed to be happening in 2012. And we still have nothing.

    Mavenlink strikes is perfect balance .It take balance between robustness and ease of use .It's a great thing.

    I couldn't live without it!

    Mavenlink strikes the perfect balance between robustness and ease of use. Adoption is easy and the ability to scale the platform to our specific needs is unbelievable. Mavenlink is far more than a project management system; it has literally changed the way we run our business.

    seems to have a good blend of many things

    I've been looking for a good project management solution for our company for a while - not been happy with most out there. Mavenlink seems to have a good blend of many things I've been looking for

    Main Features

    Manage Multiple Projects

    When it rains, it pours. Most business professionals are expected to juggle multiple projects simultaneously, without dropping the ball with regard to the important tasks and milestones that must be met to keep clients happy.

    Create a new project to get started using Mavenlink, making sure to select whether you’re the provider or the customer in a given setup. You can use project templates to quickly populate a project’s tasks, or add tasks manually. Mavenlink gives you the option to add a due date for the project, and to invite key players within your organizations who are also responsible for working on the project. Only these colleagues will be able to see the details of the project that you have uploaded.

    Create a new project.

    Collaborate with Teammates

    Mavenlink centralizes and prioritizes conversations, activities, and tasks within a unified platform, which means business users can spend more time communicating with one another and less time struggling to stay organized.

    Post a message in your Activity Stream to collect contributions from teammates who are working together with you on a project. Mavenlink gives you the option to view all your projects in a global feed or view projects individually in separate project feeds. In addition to posting written comments, you can also attach Google files or upload your own files within an Activity Stream.

    Post comments in the Activity Stream.

    Prioritize Tasks

    Tasks are an incredibly important part of collaborative work, which is why Mavenlink developed a series of task management features for its users. Drag-and-drop prioritization allows companies to re-order tasks based on the level of importance or in order of due dates. Meanwhile, time and budgets are also tracked and reported on the task level.

    Click on the Task Tracker tab to view the tasks that have been set up for a specific project you’re working on. In addition to creating basic tasks with due dates and tags, you can create subtasks that add granularity to project tasks and deliverables. Mavenlink allows you to sync your tasks into a convenient location with Google Tasks, as well.

    Prioritize task by level of importance.

    Use Gantt Charts

    Gantt charts allow businesses to create dependencies between tasks. The visual timelines that users create by enabling Gantt charts help organizations get a better handle on where various projects stand in relation to one another. Gantt charts are especially useful for identifying resources, tasks, and dates at the beginning of a project.

    View your Gantt charts to quickly assess the status and progress of any project you’re affiliated with. From the Gantt View, you can define how two tasks are related to one another, and you can assign dependencies. When a project timeline or scope changes, Mavenlink’s “Cascade Changes” feature automatically adjusts all dependent tasks to reflect the changes that have been made.

    In addition to a free trial plan, Mavenlink offers two tiers of pricing. Organizations that opt for Team accounts can expect to pay $4 per user, per month. Larger businesses will want to consider Premier accounts, with custom pricing options.
