Likelihood to Recommend

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.

I honestly am not sure where Mavenlink would be suited. Perhaps in the manufacturing industry, but not a service based industry. It's just too convoluted when it comes to getting your settings, project bill rates and reports out. I consider it a glorified spreadsheet that hasn't been updated in some time. All in all, we were ultimately really just frustrated with the slowness of the system. It just didn't make sense that page load was over 5 seconds for projects. Everything just felt bloated

  • Friendly user interface - very modern and clean, easy to use even for a non-experienced project managers or clients. It also comes with a mobile app and even browser add-ons.
  • Robust feature set - variety of alert settings, project templates, permission system, detailed analytics and reporting, billing, estimates, and planning modules.
  • Integrations - Salesforce, JIRA, and many other which is possible thanks to Mavenlink API.
  • Customer service - very helpful and available 24/7. Easy to access from the user interface which is great.

Cons

10000ft

  • 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.

  • Task management - not easy to copy/paste tasks and milestones within the same project, can't select multiple tasks to do some mass changes/actions.
  • User interface significantly slows down once you have 30-50 tasks expanded. Also, default view is "collapsed" and you have to "expand" milestones and tasks one by one in a project.
  • User permission system is there and pretty good but not always intuitive. It's not easy to move people from between two participating project parties or switch leads (you have to demote existing admin and make someone else an admin first).

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

10000ft

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

I found Dropbox (at least the free version) a bit tedious and time consuming. I didn't find the portal as easy to use or organized as 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

10000ft

  • 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.

  • Being able to communicate with users across the country had a positive impact on my experience with the company since I was only there a short time. This made me a better customer service partner by being introduced to individuals on these projects.
  • Opening a new franchise is a delicate and complicated process and Mavenlink was able to provide a list of requirements for each franchise before it could be opened. This helped prevent things from "slipping through the cracks".
