ActiveCollab

Intuitive and flexible to use all kinds of extension components. Simple and pleasant, it has amazing features and is highly secure.When they lack animation and explosiveness at the user level, it expires due to the rich user experiences offered by today's website.ActiveCollab is a safe investment when talking about dynamics and production in projects, also in the management of the fair of the working group.

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

  • Daily notifications to the mail about upcoming tasks and expired, if any.
  • Preparation of financial reports and tasks for specific projects. You can form for individual tasks, employees and other criteria.
  • The availability of the gantt chart greatly simplifies the process of building the project, as it is an effective tool that helps to see the order of tasks to be performed.

  • 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

  • I would like to supplement the mobile application with the functionality that the service has in the desktop version, for more efficient work.
  • Sorting projects and tasks is not always convenient, I would like to customize it for myself.
Иван Шайхисламов profile photo
  • Interface- It is challenging to use and not particularly intuitive. We have had to spend significant time learning the platform and learning what we can do with it.
  • Updating tasks- Due to the depths that Mavenlink can be drilled down to, it is an ordeal to update a task. You also cant delete a task unless you created it.

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

ActiveCollab has all the functions that are in these services, unlike them. Not everywhere there is a diagram of gantt. And somewhere the interface is very rewarded and in general looks obsolete.
Иван Шайхисламов profile photo
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

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

  • We began to finish projects on time, which undoubtedly will influence the return of customers
Иван Шайхисламов profile photo
  • Mavenlink is easy to use, to have it set up correctly one the time to seize the main functions of Mavenlink, such as master planning tool and statistics should be taken. It takes time, training and group wideband to configure it properly.
