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.

Redmine

Redmine is a perfect solution for businesses that are looking for a FREE and open source solution for project management. It is great for teams that are managing numerous tasks or projects at one time. Redmine is easy to set up and is fairly self-explanatory for anyone who is semi tech-savvy.

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.

Redmine

  • The design and user-interface are a little outdated. It looks like a product that was designed ten years ago and doesn't have a polished look and feel like newer apps have.
  • It's not particularly designed to support agile-based project management methodologies such as Scrum.

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

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

Redmine is a great product to have in an organization. It's extremely flexible, costs much less to maintain than other alternatives, and as a tool, it is relatively fast to get experienced with. The primary advantages of working with Redmine are: flexible platform, API, open-source and highly configurable, stability.

Mavenlink gives advance notice for system upgrades, and they're not during our business day. Mavenlink has always been available when we needed it.

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.

Redmine is free, easy to use and it's everything you could want in a free project management program. The fact that it has wiki integration and that it can track on such a granular level is amazing. Assigning tasks to other users, such as our development team, is fantastic and ensures we are always up-to-date on where we are what - on what projects.

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

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.

Redmine

Basecamp was very busy and seemed more into the "wow" factor than into being an efficient tool. Redmine has none of the characters or kid-like appearance of Basecamp's model. I found Basecamp to be too cluttered in views and its interactions confusing, making it difficult to find where centrally kept information was.
Redmine has a straightforward no-nonsense default UI, though you can change it how you like of course. The views were designed for simplicity and thinking of the least amount of steps to get to one goal instead of trying to make a pleasing color palette that was overstimulating. I think Basecamp is more geared towards the "chat" aspect whereas Redmine is good for the larger overview of a project.

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

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

Redmine

  • Positive: Redmine's initial impact is minimal: in terms of Dollars-the cost of acquisition is the price you pay for Electricity, Internet bandwidth and hardware
  • Redmine's REAL cost is time and knowledge: You will need a Linux expert to implement Redmine.
  • Readmine's configuration is also Time intensive, and it's better to augment your current staff, or hire someone directly to implement your Redmine configuration changes.
