It is perfect when sourcing through our system to find qualified candidates

Mavenlink

Mavenlink is perfect for software integration and deployment projects. We have evaluated other tools like Celoxis, Sciforma, Workfront, Pro Workflow, Eclipse, and others against our criteria list and so far Mavenlink score the highest. I wouldn't recommend Mavenlink in case you are doing software development projects since it's not the best for issue tracking (maybe look at JIRA or Redmine).

Pros

  • Organization
  • Filtration
Kyle Rapaport profile photo
  • Reporting: Mavenlink has extensive reporting capabilities that fulfill almost all of our needs. We used Analytics for basic, daily reporting, and we use Insights for a "deeper dive". When we need something different from what Insights provides out-of-the-box, we can build custom reports & dashboards.
  • Resource planning: Mavenlink far surpassed all other tools when we looked for their attention to resource planning capabilities. Managers are very happy with the ease of use and flexibility when looking to see their reports' schedules.
  • Customer service: the support we've gotten from all levels of the Mavenlink team is outstanding, whether it's getting questions answered, hearing suggestions for features, providing training, or giving process input.

Cons

  • It can be very slow, but it is taken with a grain of salt because our system has tons of data in it
Kyle Rapaport profile photo
  • 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.

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've only used Salesforce before and am now using Conga ActionGrid. Although Salesforce is great, it is only used to log candidate information and then log actions that have been performed. With Conga ActionGrid, we are able to log more specific details about candidates, activities and follow up items. Conga ActionGrid provides more tools that would benefit many departments

Mavenlink is not a creative agency specific system which Workamajig is. Mavenlink could use more updates to their resourcing tool, time tracking and reporting in order to be more beneficial to a creative based company.

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

  • It has benefited us positively, as I stated earlier- it allows us to filter down results of 65,000+ candidates to a search of 1-100 candidates.

  • I have been overcharged by Mavenlink, so I can't say there has been any ROI.
