Great for when you need something more robust than Basecamp

2016-01-05

Our agency had been using Basecamp for project management since we hired the first employee.

Pros

robust project planning resource planning visual timeline (gantt charts) dependent tasks project profitability analysis

Cons

cost when compared to basecamp (or equivalent) the initial transition was difficult (I'm not sure that is avoidable)

Pros

We stopped using Clarizen as soon as we found Mavenlink and are now weening ourselves and our clients off Basecamp. Mavenlink covers both deep PM features and functionality with an ease of use that allows clients to see what is happening without need to get involved with the 'how'.

Cons

Needs a company/team calendar function. You need to be able to block out users absence / holidays / etc. easily - and Mavenlink doesn't handle that without having to set up an 'absence' project. GANTT / Project views - need to be able to save your views.

Recommendations to others considering Mavenlink

Whilst getting to some of the functionality is not obvious to start with - I have found that 99% of the time it exists - and when you do find it (or the Live Chat points you in the right direction) then you think - OK that's actually obvious..... so if you take a trial - take the time to find out how to use it properly. It is one of the best products I've used over the last 30 years.
