Mavenlink

Before Mavenlink, our organization used several disconnected softwares to manage time, budgets, tasks, etc. We wasted so much time trying to find and connect time entries to project budgets and were constantly going over budgets but not knowing early enough to keep it from happening. Mavenlink has made our organization more efficient and has helped us deliver projects on time and within budget.

Innotas is able to handle a mid-size organization extremely well, but due to its poor searching features, I can see potential problems for extremely large organizations. So a key question to ask would be what is the size of your organization? A lot of tasks are also non-automated (such as dashboard refreshing and filter time updates), so the organization should also be willing to have a decent number of employees who will maintain the system.

Also, depending on the budget or expertise of the organization's employees, an organization may want to consider a newer or more advanced database software. Despite Innotas doing what is required of it reasonably effectively, it is likely better options exist.

Pros

Mavenlink

  • It allows a lot of customization in regards for projects if you want them to be extremely detailed on tasks
  • Master planning feature gives a great overall view for me planning my projects out
  • The design looks better than Salesforce, color coding certain projects indicating for their statuses

  • Gives insight to the breadth of your project portfolio. When everybody has their wishlist of what they want done, Innotas shows what is being achieved, and by whom. That is crucial data for management.
  • Exposes resource over-utilization. When a developer is committed to more than one project, it drags down both. Every additional project reduces a developer's productivity.
  • Provides visibility to the project timelines. Management doesn't just want their wishlist completed, they need to know how long it will take. Innotas helps provide the high-level view they need to control the flow.

Cons

Mavenlink

  • Where to begin. The email notifications are next to impossible to get right. Your team will be bombarded with notifications that carry no real weight.
  • The cost is just too high. Compared to other PM software, this one is in the tens of thousands of dollars for a company to utilize for such a dated piece of software.
  • There are so many layers to this tool that it is difficult to decipher permissions for users.
  • You can't add photos in comments! Seriously it's 2019 and they can't implement a simple field that allows for images to be pasted right in with the comments. Everything has to be an attachment, which is cumbersome and slows progress.

  • Needs simplification of reporting capabilities.
  • During implementation, needs to improve upon understanding the customer base and their processes so that the customer can be guided how to get the best utlization of the program for their needs. Continual hands-on support and review of the customer's system could be helpful as new capabilities are implemented.
  • Could use a slicker look and feel to the resource capacity planning process/screens.

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

As I previously stated I am no longer in the role where I acted as Innotas admin, but because our license has been twice renewed since initial deployment and since I am in the business and have used the IT request process I created and have not heard anything to the contrary

Only the app is bad; everything else is fantastic. It has a logical user flow and I barely needed any guidance on how to use it when I first started. As with most softwares there are unseen capabilities I've needed to be shown in order to use, but for my day-to-day tasks I could have figured it out without any training

Still cumbersome in some areas. It really depends on the individual. I've seen very smart developers who get lost just managing tasks and logging time. Whereas others use the system with ease

Very good integration with Google apps. Some complexity is called however in the synchronization between Google Tasks and Maven links tasks. This can sometimes lead to duplicate records in Google Tasks. It has been dissolvable that becomes cumbersome if not properly curated.

Mavenlink support is fantastic! Any issues that arise are always handled quickly and efficiently. Granted, we haven't had many issues to report. Typically, my team tends to only reach out to support if they need assistance remembering how to do something or asking about an improvement. We had Mavenlink build an integration when we first started using the software, and the support team worked hard to listen and improve the integration.

Their ability to assist and answer questions when needed is incredible. They create innovative ways to share information and help customers trouble shoot. I didn't give it a ten because I believe they could do a better job of personally reaching out to customers and providing improvement guidance based on where the customer is at and their needs at the time

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

Mavenlink

We have evaluated about 15 different project management platforms and narrowed down our list to only five (Celoxis, Sciforma, Podio, Mavenlink, and Teamwork). Other solutions we evaluated were not able either to meet our vendor security requirements or were not flexible in pricing (or had costly integrations and add-ons that we needed but they were not included). Other reasons were lack of 24/7 and multilingual support, only one user interface language (English, but we needed French, German, and more), absence of a dedicated account manager from a vendor, and overall user experience.

We use both to allocate time and track hours, however, while both are different, they serve some similarities. Planview PPM Pro is well suited for the HR side of allocating hours while VSTS is better for planning workloads using Agile Scrum Methodology.

Return on Investment

Mavenlink

  • If we are talking about time saved from a administrative and setup standpoint we probably save at least around thousand dollars a week since this tool is so easy to set up!
  • They have an extensive training center to explain how to use the tool and a live chat feature so employees aren't reaching out to me with questions! That saves me a lot of time and money to work on more valuable tasks for the company.
Kate Battle | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Some users think it's time consuming, although if they were trained properly and understood the benefits of Innotas, it may be different. So, possibly having quick tips within Innotas to help users better navigate and use the system itself.
  • It's definitely been a huge help with reporting statuses of projects and being able to hire additional resources when people are overloaded.
