Pros
Easy to use, good loading times, simple but effective design, great reporting capabilities.
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.
Our team is so happy to have made the switch to Mavenlink. The sales and support team have been outstanding.
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.

Great Project Management Tool

Reviewed 7 years ago

We've been using MavenLink for over a year now and we are constantly learning new and better ways to utilise all the tools it has to offer. We use it as our core method of communication with our clients, it helps to have all the information in one place. The Time tracking tool is easy to use and we are hoping to take full advantage of the Resource Allocation and Gantt chart in the near future

Pros

- So many options and ways to customise each feature - Time tracking tool is very easy to use, our team prefers it over what we have had in the past - Custom reporting, especially weekly project reports, have upped our client communication game. Our Clients appreciate the extra level of transparency and it has helped us prevent a lot of surprises when the invoice is sent out. - Resource Allocation and Gantt chart really help when it comes to Project Planning.

Cons

- It's really difficult to see WHO is responsible for a task if multiple people are assigned to it. This is a problem when you are looking at a project and want to see who is responsible for what from 30,000 feet. Instead, you need to go to that specific task and read through the comments to see where it stands. There are a few workarounds for it, but then all involved extra work and monitoring to make sure everyone using the system is doing so correctly. - There doesn't seem to be a way to edit a comment once you post it - You can't customise the status options for the different tasks, so something is either in progress, not started, needs information, or completed. It doesn't really let you customise it to follow your workflows.

Disappointed

Reviewed 4 years ago

Not great.

Pros

Very robust. And I like that time tracking is integrated into the software.

Cons

For the price, and for what we THOUGHT we could do, very disappointed with the tool to date. Good chance we're moving away from Mavenlink before the next renewal.

Great System with Some Room for Improvement

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

The project tracking, in terms of the timesheet collection and revenue management this works great for our business and is absolutely essential.

Cons

From an overall user perspective, the system can be quite clunky to use without adequate training which has caused some hiccups.
