10000ft

I think 10000ft is good for bare minimum project monitoring, we used it a large company because we didn't need to have exact numbers - it was just a rough idea to see where freelance resources were over burning. If, however you work a much smaller company and really need to know detailed information it's not as effective, there are many other software options that really allow for much closer and precise tracking. I would recommend 10000ft for companies that just need to monitor large freelance teams, track hours and higher level projects that are also monitored on other project management tools. It's a tool I would only use in conjunction with something else.

Mavenlink

I love Mavenlink and personally did a lot of research on similar tools to find the one that fit our organization's needs. This tool is really comprehensive and can be scaled up and down depending on your organization's needs. I can easily see this working for both a small or large organization and we have even considered recommending this to clients! Also, they have a really great R&D team and roll out new features and updates regularly

Pros

  • Tracks freelance resource hours.
  • Tracks multiple small projects and milestones within the projects.
  • Tracks budget information and scope creep.
  • Time tracking is incredibly easy and intuitive allowing for you to add time to multiple projects on a single sheet - also easy to distinguish between billable and un-billable time.
  • As an admin it is really easy to add people to projects and change cost and bill rates quickly.
  • The financial analytics when you include the insights module is very well done and easy to slice and dice the data.
  • We don't use it for detailed project management much (more for the time and budgeting features) but it's really easy to add a project, add some tasks, and assign people to it with their cost and bill rates.
  • The resource planning tool is really neat as well - we are still playing with it but I can see it adding a lot of value for us.
  • There are a lot of training resources available and videos as well as a live chat feature that helps take questions off my back.
  • Expense reporting and approvals is really easy.

Cons

  • It's often confusing to use and find things, I sometimes find it to be a little counterintuitive as to where functions are (e.g. for tracking budgets and pulling reports).
  • When pulling a budget I always struggled to comb through the large amounts of data and time inputted. When I select a filter the page often wouldn't refresh or i'd forget to de-select a filter as it wasn't in an obvious place, which sometimes left me with pulling an incorrect budget.
  • The data is only as good as the people entering the time. Often with so many small tasks people would enter time incorrectly, in the wrong milestone or project. It lists all of your projects on one page, so it's not easy to enter it and there's a lot of room for error.
  • Integrations of popular tools (Mailchimp, BaseCRM...)
  • Price is heavy and can slow us down (maybe a start-up package?)
  • Loading pre-made templates, exporting or importing them is a plus

I think there's limited uses for the tool and much more comprehensive options out there for multiple tools in one. With more people working remotely, it's hard to just use email and face to face, in some ways you need to have a tool that's a fall back and a record of where you are + where you're going

Although the company I currently work for does not use the product I have recommended that we do switch to Mavenlink. We will be opening some new sites internationally this year and I can see that Mavenlink would be a great product for us to use

Mavenlink gives advance notice for system upgrades, and they're not during our business day. Mavenlink has always been available when we needed it.

There were less than a handful of times where we saw any issues with Mavenlink performance. Pages load quickly. Sometimes a search seems to take more than few seconds, but it's never been a huge deal.

We prepared questions in advance, and our trainer was an expert in what Mavenlink was and wasn't able to do. We were able to have multiple people trained at once.

The training was very well-organized. We were able to send questions in advance so the instructor knew what to cover, and the brought up related topics to maximize the usefulness of what they were teaching us.

Dedicate as much internal time to the implementation effort as possible, even if you're using a 3rd party or Mavenlink services. Your team knows your processes the best

Alternatives Considered

Although an interesting tool, compared to Basecamp or Workfront, 10000ft really struggles on the collaboration aspect of the tool. It's great for the bare minimum, recording hours and pulling a budget, but we also relied on email for collaboration and face to face meetings - which is no bad thing! Although for big companies and small projects it's nice to have everything all in one tool so there's less jumping and room for error. That would be my recommendation for any company evaluating it
We found Mavenlink to be better designed, and it gave a pro feeling to our customers with very few tweaks. It had its own way to define projects steps but way simpler than having none like Asana or too complicated as with ProWorkflow (the features are pretty close though on that one). We also felt that the analytics were stronger with Mavenlink.

It's very easy to add users and contractors into Mavenlink. There's also an option that let's you manage access for teams in multiple locations.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - We were able to track multiple projects at the same time and record accurate hours.
  • Positive - Able to pull budget and excel reports which can the be analyzed further and relatively simply.
  • Negative - There were a lot of times when hours were entered inaccurately which left us in a bind with budget and freelance billing.
  • Average time from invoice to payment decreased from 21.2 days to 13.6 days.
