This product is just what we needed

2017-04-14

Pros

GREAT custom reporting with the insights module!

Cons

I wish there was a way to align all scheduled resources when a handful of dates change. Doing this manually is time consuming. There are a few additional requests I have. I wish it was less expensive, but it is worth the price.

Great Product

2017-03-21

We switched over from Open Air. The interface is much nicer and the software runs much faster. I highly recommend it for project-based companies who need to keep a clear eye on Utilization and billing

Pros

Business Insights is a fabulous tool for slicing and dicing almost real time data.

Cons

I wish that when a resource was not available, the system would not allow you to assign tasks to them.

Simple UI that aids in user adoption.

2017-05-23

Impressive visibility into the state and health of my projects and organization, greatly increased resource management capabilities.

Pros

Master resource planning module, combined with built in BI Tool (Insights) offers users impressive data analytics functionality.

Cons

The only con that I can identify with the software is that it is not extremely customizable, but that is by design. It is straight forward software that doesnt encounter issues associated with other highly customized systems (breaks, lack of user adoption, over complexity)

Great for overall Project Management and collaborating on projects with clients.

Pros

I like the Analytics and Insights tab for high visibility into utilization, resources, and high level budget tracking.

Cons

It isn't as bidirectional as other platforms are. The invoicing tool is not robust enough and the user permissions levels could use improvement.

Very Comprehensive and Easy to use

2016-08-23

Pros

The vendor was the most helpful out of all the software we evaluated. They were more than happy to supply all security documentation our paranoid IT department demanded.

Cons

Takes a little time to set up but most comprehensive project management tools do, so this is less a criticism than an insight into my motivation levels for admin tasks...

Great Product for an SME

2018-10-03

I would recommend the tool, its provided us with a really useful platform to provide greater control over our projects.

Pros

The Dashboard and project spaces are clean and intuitive - they provide us with a clear way to manage our projects - we make great use of the project health checks and project insights for our weekly and monthly reporting.

Cons

there could be more done to make the time sheet and scheduling tools integrated more

5 Stars Resource Management Platform

2018-04-24

Pros

Mavenlink's Master Planning feature is unique in the marketplace. I've tried several different project management platforms in my career, and none deal with resource management quite as efficiently as Mavenlink does.

Cons

While Mavenlink is an easy tool to use, to have it properly set up one has to take time to consider tapping into Mavenlink's core features such as the Master Planning tool and Insights. It does take some time, training and group bandwidth to set this up properly.

Project Management tool and more

2015-12-22

My sole purpose in getting this software was to replace 3 applications I was using that Mavenlink did in one. It manages my projects, tracks our time, expenses and reports our metrics.

Pros

I am able to build our project plans, assign users to their tasks, give them insight into their activities, budgets, timelines.

Cons

The expenses needs to be worked out but Mavenlink has bridged that gap until they can enhance that part of the product with reporting.

It's capability to track all of our expense for projects, and the functionality is great

2018-01-23

Overall, extremely effective in keeping our projects moving and keeping team members in the loop - may take a bit to get adjusted to the interface when coming from other PM software but that's expected when switching from any

Pros

I like the Analytics and Insights tab for high visibility into utilization, resources, and high level budget tracking.

Cons

It isn't as bidirectional as other platforms are. The invoicing tool is not robust enough and the user permissions levels could use improvement. It is a little hard to manage timeline with resources, but not because it doesnt offer it, but because projects always change and its hard to find the time to modify the changes needed that constantly happen. We find it easier to just manually adjust as things change.

Take the time to really run a project from a to z before making a judgment. Sometimes, heavy projects require robust tools that you can't just run with a spreadsheet.

Mavenlink Helped Define Processes for our Strategic Consulting team

2016-01-08

The Add-on Insights reporting tool is a good addition to the standard reporting tool that the application come with that help further dissect and analysis the data to help us forecast and understand what activities our consultants are working on in a real-time basis.

Pros

A Clean UI interface with reporting capability are the two key factors why we chosen Mavenlink over other competitor.

Cons

It appears that Mavenlink need custom development to integrate with other system (Expense System), there are no existing adaptor/plug-in that can perform the task.

Mavenlink has helped us to move forward ...

2016-03-30

Thanks to all the information & financial insights that Mavenlink delivers, we are finally able to make decisions that are based on facts instead of gut feeling.

Pros

Mavenlink is very user-friendly and made it really easy for us to introduce the software to our staff. All information is kept in one place, which makes information-sharing much easier and everyone on the project has a better and more realistic idea of timelines, deliverables, allocated time etc. The support and customer service has been excellent so far, so a big thank you to Vanessa! The live chat is very useful and I also love that Mavenlink listens to its clients' feedback and uses their experience to improve the functionality.

Cons

The integration with Quickbooks UK is still very basic so we can't really make use of it at the moment. The time tracking could also be simplified as it can get a bit confusing.

I can now put my data to work for me

2016-10-18

The quick snapshots of the Analytics reports let you know if you're on track while the trends that are pulled from the Insights are very powerful to help us manage and course correct our estimate, resourcing and burn rate.

Pros

Resourcing, Scheduling for projections, the ability to compare actuals vs. scheduled/estimates, timetracking with a timer/timesheet or in the weekly timesheet tool - flexibility to do it however works best for you. Easy onboarding of team...

Cons

The Gantt chart is slow to load when you have a large project plan, there is no in tool estimate feature really that is comprehensive, there are workarounds, but would love to see that added.

Great for a small-medium sized company. Really simple to use and support is great. This allows me to manage my team and my company's profits through easy-to-use dashboards to understand what's going on at a project level as well as companywide. I no longer feel like I'm throwing a dart in the dark. Take Mavenlink to combine all your project management and financial information into one tool, you'll be happy you did.

So call me a Mavenlink evangelist...

2015-12-18

I highly recommend the Business Insights add-on; the extended reporting capabilities are well-thought-out.

Pros

Excellent built-in reporting, easy to set up for all members of the team. Does a great job with task, project, and role-level budgeting and financial reporting.

Cons

Doesn't retain customized views in the Gantt mode. Resource planning is good, but not quite there yet in terms of plotting multiple concurrent and projected engagements at the role level - but they're working on it. Converting estimated hours to scheduled hours works, but isn't as effortless as it could be.

So, yeah, you could call me an evangelist

2017-03-24

We've found that the tool is very flexible, has some great native reporting capabilities that become exceptional when coupled with the Business Insights add-on, it integrates well to SalesForce, it has given us a much better ability to manage projects for clients as well as internal product development projects, and it provides us with much better capabilities toward planning organizational growth and managing to margin at the business unit level down to the project level.

Pros

Flexible, provides the ability to set up multiple templates for different types of projects, supports T&M and Fixed Fee contract types, integrates to SalesForce, provides multiple views toward project status, continually adding new features and capabilities

Cons

Gantt charts are still in need of a lot of work and help. Still buggy, no user-defined view preferences can be saved.

If you're not a particularly mature organization in terms of Project Management and governance, I highly recommend sitting down with Mavenlink's consultants and getting help with establishment of best practices and setting up your instance on the basis of those best practices and resulting workflow. Don't thwart your own efforts by simply applying the same flawed processes into a new tool.

Software Implementation Process with Mavenlink

2016-08-09

Pros

Mavenlink Insights and analytics reports provide the company with a holistic view of all projects and accounts.

Cons

Given we are an Australian based company there are a few things within the software which are set for the US, for example the date is in the wrong sequence and data refreshes happen at awkward times. These are only minor and don't stop us from achieving our main objectives. It would be helpful to have a little more control over these settings. It would be also good for Super Admin users to have a greater level of visibility. At present even admin need to be invited to a project to view the tasks and approve time etc. It would be helpful for Super Admin users to have this level of visibility with having to rely on a project lead to invite them to a project.

I would highly recommend the software and the service. Advise I would give would be for the purchasing company to determine their objectives internally before articulating requirements to Mavenlink to ensure the original vision is not lost sight of. Mavenlink will work best if everyone is using the system consistently.
