Overall Satisfaction with Mavenlink Project Management

We use it for tracking client projects to include tasks and deadlines. We also us it to evaluate employee productivity and efficiency. It is used across the entire organization.
  • QuickBooks integration
  • They did not perfect the basics of user interface before adding more functionality. The dashboard is fixed width, non-responsive and not customizable.
  • Locked into a contract with no control over software change impact.
  • Poor customer service. Quote company policy and user agreements only.
  • The software now lags causing decreased productivity. Upwards of 20-30 seconds sometimes to load pages and log time.
  • Software changes without options to stay at current version or customize has increased lag in usage...extra clicks to do things now further slowing productivity.
We initially selected Mavenlink for ease of use and clean, simple interface. The price helped too.
But all of this has changed for the worse. This was the first solution we have tried and would like to move on to better, but are now locked into a contract until next year.
They started out good for the price. Now their customer service is subpar, their product has not evolved well, and they are charging more. The dashboard is non-responsive and non-customizable. They lock you into a contract and quote user agreement when you question their changes and usability. Would never recommend to anyone.

Evaluating Mavenlink Project Management and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
Usability. Software has to save time...and this particular one no longer does.
Avoid long term contracts. Ask about the ability to customize or keep previous revisions of software.

It's cloud driven, so no issues.
Change management was minimal - n/a
  • Adding outside contractors to the software

Yes - No. They say they will send it to their product team, but you never know for sure.
No, that's not possible. In fact, you have to prove over and over again the issues you are having.
