Overall Satisfaction with Mavenlink

Mavelink, like many other platforms out there, is a robust project management system. It is used across the organization in my case and every team member interfaces with it daily throughout the week. It is the primary tool that we use to keep track of timecards as well as project collateral and status.
  • Track time- We use the timecard feature to match the hours and minutes of our day to a specific client or project.
  • Track projects- As an agency, we have a lot of projects going on most of the time. Maven helps us keep a pulse on the projects as they happen. Even if one person is not on a project, he or she has insight and visibility into it.
  • 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.
  • It is hard to project ROI for a project management system but it has been positive. It will in no way replace a project manager, but it helps keep workflow moving and efficient.
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.
Mavenlink is well suited in organizations that are remote or have remote workers. It is great to have everyone on the same page and that everyone has access to project status and updates. We have also used Mavenlink as our timecard tracker though this is not necessarily needed by every organization. It would not be the greatest platform to use when there are less than 5 people in an organization.
