Mavenlink is a great project management tool. I've used over 5 project management tools and Mavenlink was one of the most intuitive platforms. It took me a few days to fully understand how to use all of the features, however after diving into the platform, it was extremely easy to use. The team and clients were pleased with the communication and the way deliverables were submitted within the platform. I have successfully managed and completed over 50 projects within Mavenlink.

Pros :

  • Mavenlink makes it easy to duplicate project templates and has a great way of organizing tasks and milestones within a specific client project. It's possible to assign a task to multiple users and to specify the amount of time per task.
  • The budget tracker provides a great overview of the amount spent per project for easy analyzing at the end of the week/month.
  • As a project manager, it was great to have the team upload all files within each task and to be notified of each item for me to go in and approve.
  • It was easy to grant specific permissions to different users, which is particularly important when working with several contractors.
  • Within discussions, it is possible to mention users and loop them into the conversation.
  • If I ever ran into a problem on the platform, there was always someone on the chat pane to answer my questions.
  • My colleague left several feature recommendations, and they were actually implemented a few months later.

Cons :

  • Oftentimes the platform would take a long time to load and would freeze while expanding or minimizing tasks.
  • Also, when additional text was added under a task description, users wouldn't be notified of changes to the description. It wasn't possible to see who revised a task or at what time the change occurred.
  • The platform was also slow when making changes on a task or milestone level.

Mavenlink is an impressive application and very similar to Smartsheet, with a very short learning curve its an extremely powerful project management tool for business users. Its existing set of features are worthy of a trial for new users or even for those who are looking for an efficient project or task management solution.

Upon learning of DeskAway I thought, "What a nice idea, but I do not have the time to learn something new." To my surprise, DeskAway is very simple to understand and implement. Within a matter of an hour, I was completely set up, had three projects entered and was ready to go. Once you find that you like the product, you can upgrade at any time. The charges for the product are reasonable for what it offers. There are several subscription plans to fit your project needs.

We used Mavenlink for a few months. We didn't like it. We were conned into thinking there was a feature but there wasn't. This caused problems for our Company. We were never given an apology or a refund.

My company switched from BaseCamp to Deskaway six months ago and it has been a major hassle every week to maintain. When we are assigned to do something, my co-workers and I have to create a "Milestone", then a "Task List" then a "Task." Pretty much, we have to enter an assignment THREE TIMES to log it. Also, the calendar doesn't show you when a task starts, it only shows when it's due, something BaseCamp did. When my boss sent issues to me, I did not receive emails which the system is suppose to do, plus they did not show up on my calendar nor on my home screen. I almost lost my job because of this. I've tried using shortcuts to reduce the time I spend each week entering tasks in the 8 projects I'm in charge of, however they did not meet my supervisors' standards, so I'm stuck wasting 2 hours every week entering the same tasks every single time. The shortcut I used was a "recurring task." This is might be a good tool for management, however your employees will absolutely hate it and you in turn.
