I would recommend Mavenlink to any creative/production team that has projects with a defined set of processes time after time. The automation that the software provides is outstanding. The more attention and thought that you put into Mavenlink at the beginning of a project, the smoother your team and the project will go throughout the process.

  • Process Solidification - Mavenlink allows us to intuitively plan new processes and rework old ones within a template mode, that we can then convert into any number of projects that we need to. It's great to have the ability to rework templates as we see fit to optimize our workflow without needing to alter projects that are already in-process.
  • Time Tracking is important to some of our clients. Our team enjoys how integrated time tracking is [done at] the task level. It's always right there near the task you're working on, so there's no time wasted by managing time in other external modules or softwares.
  • Our team appreciates being able to know, right away, what the day's task load looks like. Mavenlink does an amazing job of showing what the team's workload looks like for the day, next 2 weeks, month...whatever you want. And it can get either as simplified or as granular as you need it to be in terms of hour allocation down to the person or by project. Mavenlink has mastered the 30,000-ft. view of the team's workload. It lets us make decisions at a glance, rather than rifling through project documents, trying to hunt due dates.

Cons

Actionspace

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • For as much as I use Mavenlink's templating capabilities, it is rather finicky to learn at its current version. There is a "steeper-than-I'd-recommend" learning curve associated with it. However, once you learn what works and what doesn't, it's no longer an obstacle. I will say, though, that Mavenlink is amazing when it comes to listening to the user that has feature recommendations and bug notifications. I'm on a first-name-basis with my support contact at Mavenlink, and she is absolutely amazing as my personal liaison direct to the Mavenlink engineering team.

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

Mavenlink is much more robust than other project management platforms that we have used in the past. The ability to match each task to a preset time, budget and invoice objective is better than their competitors. It is also worth noting that Mavenlink has the built-in time tracker for employees to use, a nice and convenient feature
