If you are looking for a basic CRM this tool would work. It has lots of room to grow.

I believe it is well suited for projects that have stakeholders who are not face-to-face on a consistent basis. I found it easy to connect with people from across the country at odd times of the day through Mavenlink. I would gladly recommend this product again.

Cons

  • Difficult to upload targets
  • Not easy to modify a target
  • When uploading targets you can not attach them to tags until after they are uploaded.
  • When listing opportunities in the system, you are limited with what stage the opportunity is in and the star system is not very helpful. The status' are very vague and not always accurate.

  • Its integrations aren't the best. The Google Drive and QuickBooks integrations are flawed enough to make them unusable for us.
  • They need a mobile app bad. They tout the responsive version of their web app as the answer to this, but it is so stripped down it is useless. This is a significant disappointment for us.
  • They don't handle recurring projects (those that happen every month) well at all.

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.

They are not friendly or supportive. They will quote company policies and re-direct without fully understanding the issues you are having.

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

I also evaluated Wrike, and while the mobile app is nice it fell short where time tracking and invoicing were concerned. It lacked the ability to generate invoices other than a simple spreadsheet and time tracking seemed like an afterthought. Mavenlink allows for time tracking in timesheet form as well as tracking by individual day. This can all be pulled into an invoice, that is later trackable within the system (to confirm payment, etc)

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

  • Helps with tracking prospects through the sales/marketing funnel
  • Has led some employees to stop using the tool and going back to spreadsheets. When trying to attach targets to tags you need to do so individually and if you upload a large list you need to do this manually, one by one, and requires a lot of time. So people have gone back to spreadsheets where they could simply just cut and paste new people in.

  • Give us drastic increase on insights of project and client profitability
  • We were always busy before but now we can see how and why we are busy
