”Since we started using Mavenlink, we went from closing 65% of our leads to 87%.” - Lilia Garcia at XIPE Internet Solutions
Q: Sean Crafts (Mavenlink Co-Founder) - Can you tell us a little about your business?
A: Lilia Garcia - XIPE Internet Solutions is an Internet Marketing Agency in Austin, Texas. We focus on providing small local businesses with internet and marketing solutions, such as quality SEO services, with integrity, professionalism, and style.
Q: Sean - How did you find Mavenlink?
A: Lilia - Found them searching for online project management in the Google Apps Marketplace.
Q: Sean - What pain points has Mavenlink solved for your business?
A: Lilia - Efficiency and time tracking that gives customer full visibility of project progress. Mavenlink provides one place for messaging and problem solving amongst team members. The project dashboard, with the ability to post pictures or links, is one of the best features - it keeps everything organized and all messages relative to that project in one place. Much better than reading and searching for passed email strings.
Q: Sean - What do your clients, consultants, and fellow co-workers say about Mavenlink?
A: Lilia - My clients really appreciate the one place stop for messaging, viewing time, and payments. I have a few clients who have a variable marketing budget from month to month; Mavenlink's "propose budget change" and budget tracking feature is invaluable - gives me an edge above my competitors.
Q: Sean - Please explain the Results of using Mavenlink and Google Apps.
A: Lilia - The easy navigation from Mavenlink to any of the other Google Apps is extremely helpful. Accessing Google Contacts and integration of Google Calendar and Google Tasks has become an essential part of our project timelines and delivery methods.
Q: Sean - Anything else you want to tell us or features you’d like to see?
A: Lilia - Custom branding, time tracking, budget settings, project tracking, project templates, project feed all in one place, all on one site and you invoice and take payments! Since we started using Mavenlink, we went from closing 65% of our leads to 87%.
The only thing we have changed in our project proposals is our use of Mavenlink. We tell our prospective clients about the features in the project dashboard, about being able to log on and view all details of time being tracked, and we offer the feature to fully control the marketing budget through the "propose a budget change" tab and they are hooked!
