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...

I especially like the timeline view. It is helping me become more realistic about the amount of time I need to complete certain tasks. The ability to create subtasks and task lists is very helpful. When I get stuck on one aspect of the project, I can easily...

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...

Slowest app to load, sometimes takes several reloads for app to become available. Slower than any other app I use. Downtime for maintenance. Have to log back in after maintenance. Adertisement banners appearing across top of page more and more. Can't merge...

It is buggy and difficult to use at times. It does not lend its self to ease of use.
