Pros

FreshBooks combined with other applications is a great tool. In any case, if you want to create invoices and send it in a split second and then track and monitor its progress, I recommend FreshBooks.

It has a great interface which makes it feel very easy to use and has a great set of templates you can use from the beginning for various accounting needs.

Pros

Overall, I've been very happy with Mavenlink. While it might not be the least expensive software out there, it's very robust so you definitely get a great bang with your buck.

Rachel S.

I really love the ease of tracking time and the multiple options you have as a user of the system. The system is intuitive and there are great resources for reporting.

Mavenlink helps me track the progress and budgets for my projects. It's easy to use and I like the many different reports that I can pull from the tool.

Cons

We would lose all of that if we switched, so unfortunately we are stuck with having to use this horrible new format.

Steve H.

It is really frustrating to have a client not be able to pay through the invoice, and for this reason, only, I have been considering a new software company.

Jeff B.

Tier based pricing from Lite to Premier is a bit confusing. WePay advocates having a Chase bank account for faster processing otherwise fails to integrate.

Khurram M.

Cons

We basically had to figure it out on our own. THe "integrations" through thier integration tool are very poorly built and the tool is terrible.

Many ways to do similar things and often so many features you’re unaware of. I find it is intimidating for new users and not as intuitive as other products.

Zoom, Slack, Microsoft Teams, no other application sends me so much email. The color scheme is also boring.

Mavenlink

Simple way to manage client project collaboration online

Reviewed 11 years ago

Easy to use and helps me save time while juggling multiple clients across the US. I had been looking for a way to organize all my project communication and collaborate online with clients and subcontractors all in one place. Previously email was the preferred method of communication, but its not ideal. Mavenlink allows me to keep all group communication in one place on one page. This keeps everyone on the same page with very little additional effort. Once implemented everyone I work with can be more efficient and clients feel like they are being kept in the loop. My goal is to work smart....not hard. Using Mavenlink with other Google Apps products like gist and freshbooks is going to help me get there.

Pros

Project collaboration, time tracking, invoicing (HUGE PLUS), easy to see the entire project and all back-and-forth in one place. The new time tracking software and invoicing software have really helped my small business.

Cons

I would like private label and to be able to host it on my own URL, but I believe they are rolling that out this month.
