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

  • Time tracking because you can account for almost every single minute of your day with detailed descriptions attached. The reporting of time came in very good use when clients questioned billing.
  • Robust billing portal that was pretty customizable.
  • Could track employee costs well once the correct numbers were placed into the system. Came in very handy for billing and company budgeting and projections.

  • 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

  • The overall layout and physical design of the portals could be simplified greatly. The program is anything but intuitive to use.
  • I found myself clicking what felt like a 1,000 times just to complete one small task. Billing was very cumbersome and the program did not integrate smoothly with Quickbooks as was previously promised.
  • Saving and making templates for billing etc. was a tedious process that also cost extra!
  • The program is as good as what you put into it, but they designed the software for a more particular one-sided way to work and manage, so it made customizing a project to your companies methods tricky.
  • Overall a very cumbersome program that looks as if it was designed at the start of the millennium and note 16 years into it.

  • A better resourcing tool. Its difficult to schedule time to a person.
  • Cleaner section for communication.
  • A better reporting functionality. No way for someone not on every project to see the big picture.

Overall, the Mavenlink interface is intuitive and easy-to-use. There are some features that require multiple clicks or click then key stroke - e.g., a lot of our staff ask about keyboard shortcuts and usability improvements for timesheets.

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 love Harvest, especially compared to Archioffice. It's very intuitive, simply designed and easy to use. Perhaps the billing isn't as robust or customizable as Archi, but I would take it over Archi any day.

We found Mavenlink to be better designed, and it gave a pro feeling to our customers with very few tweaks. It had its own way to define projects steps but way simpler than having none like Asana or too complicated as with ProWorkflow (the features are pretty close though on that one). We also felt that the analytics were stronger with 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.

  • ArchiOffice helps us manage our monthly expenses.

  • The utilization report that shows billable and non billable will prove to be extremely valuable as it will help us prove our pricing models/books.
