The increase in team performance. simultaneously manage multiple projects and leverage real-time communication with members.

Kristen W.
User in Information Technology and Services

The flow charts that allow so many personalized options are unique and a life-saver. The time tracking options are also a big hit. The entire office is able to utilize multiple aspects of Mavenlink without any issue. The software is extremely user friendly...

Caveman ready interface. It's like an apple product; crack it open and go.

Administrator in Public Relations and Communications

Users are given dozens of options when producing a simple report, and the written explanations vary little, making it confusing as to what information will be pulled in a given report.

Nothing to do with the program, I found the most cost and user-friendly app for managing projects and could never get my elder coworkers to actually USE IT!!

Jodi J.
User in Online Media

They started out good for the price. Now their customer service is subpar, their product has not evolved well, and they are charging more. Non-responsive, non-customizable dashboard. They lock you into a contract and quote user agreement when you question...

Slow to load. Frozen development because they start from scratch for each new version. Lack of native integrations because developers have to develop new integration for each new version. I wish it had some kind of webform data entry onboarding feature...
