ML is quantum leap ahead of these platforms in collaboration, ROI, Communication, billing accountability, Resource management and much more

Mavenlink Implementation

Using Mavenlink

Good usability. Somewhat intuitive but helps to have the tutorials. Fortunately they have incredibly great 24/7 tech support as well.

Mavenlink Reliability

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.
