Mavenlink Premier Includes:
Keep projects focused and on track with up-to-date schedules and timelines you can see. Use Gantt Charts to illustrate your project's progress in real-time, see what project activities are crucial to completing the project to expectation, and easily track project updates over time.
Create and manage project activities, milestones, deliverables, and issues in a drag-and-drop task list. Build a multi-level work breakdown structure (WBS) with nested tasks.
Task Assignment & Scheduling
Set task start dates, due dates, and priority levels. Assign tasks to project participants to clarify responsibilities. Team members can update task status as their work progresses.
Manage each project's schedule in a list or timeline-based view. Schedule task dates manually or based on task duration and relationships.
Visualize each project's tasks and timeline on an interactive gantt chart. Drag-and-drop tasks to adjust dates and durations.
Establish task relationships in a project's gantt chart to signify dependencies between activities. When a task schedule is changed in gantt, all dependent tasks shift accordingly.
Critical Path Analysis
Highlight the tasks in a project's critical path on the gantt chart to identify which activities directly impact delivery dates.
Create project groups to quickly assemble programs and portfolios of projects.
Project Baseline & Variance Analysis
Record snapshots of your gantt chart and budget to create a baseline. Compare the current schedule against any previous snapshot to analyze variance.
Project Plan Templates
Build reusable project templates that include tasks, gantt charts, budgets, and assignments. Customize and apply templates to create new projects in seconds. Save an existing project plan as a template to replicate success.
Change Request Management
Submit a change request to your client for approval, streamlining the approval process when scope changes result in a revised budget to deliver the work.
Take control of project finances. Calculate project budgets, monitor budget changes, and set bill and cost rates to members of your project team. Go from tracking time and expenses within a project workspace to invoicing clients for your work when ready, all in one integrated system.
Time & Expense Tracking
Track billable and non-billable time at the project or task level. Log expenses and save receipts from your phone using Mavenlink's HTML mobile app.
Budgeted Projects & Tasks
Set a project budget to track spend as the work is delivered. Time and expenses logged show up as budget used, making it easy to monitor the spend rate.
Time Cards & Expense Reports
Enable time and expense approvals to review submitted time entries and expenses reports before they are invoiced. Managers can review and accept/reject with notes to the project participant.
Invoicing & Online Payments
Create and submit invoices for billable projects within the project workspace. Include fixed fee deliverables, time and materials, expenses, or all three. Roll-up multiple projects for a single client into one invoice. Accept online payment via Paypal to accellerate cash collection.
Project / Job Costing
Calculate the cost of delivering a project. Specify the hours required by each resource, and Mavenlink uses the cost rates for those resources to create a total cost.
Rate Cards (Cost & Bill Rates)
Set bill rates at the role level with rate cards. The appropriate rate will apply automatically when time is scheduled or tracked. You can create multiple rate cards for different projects, clients, currencies, and geographies.
Better utilize your people with Mavenlink. Resource scheduling tools help you assign rates, roles, and tasks to your team members, which helps inform budget planning. Use Utilization Reports to immediately assess your team's utilization across all projects so you can better staff for current and anticipated work.
Hard & Soft Resource Allocation
Create a rough sketch of future resource allocation by planning hours. When the time comes to lock in those resources, schedule their hours on a project to commit their time and remove them from the availability pool.
Resource Scheduling (task & project level)
Schedule a resource's hours on a project or task. That resource can now see how much time is allotted, and others can see that the resource is allocated (booked) for those hours/days.
Real-Time Availability Forecasting
See which resources are available now and who will be available in the future based on the resource schedule. View by role to see which roles are available to staff a project need.
Automatically schedule a resource across multiple days using different methods. Spread their hours evenly through the project, frontload them, backload them, or consume a set amount over a specified date range.
Set up projects, assign tasks, and watch project activity come alive in one cohesive space. Project collaborators within a project can post status updates, communicate (privately or publicly) surrounding deliverables, timelines, and feedback, share work, and track tasks as they are completed. Teams can also integrate with Google to make collaboration even easier.
Give each user a single view across all of their active projects. The latest posts, files, and upcoming tasks are synthesized from all projects in which a user participates.
Collaborate with team members in a dedicated, web-based workspace for each project. See project participants, the latest project activity, and upcoming tasks at a glance.
View all project-related communication in a familiar, chronological feed. Visit the activity feed for a specific project, or view a cross-project feed on the Dashboard.
Upload files and attach Google Drive files to share them with collaborators. Mention specific users and link files to tasks for easy reference.
Reduce the time it takes your team to review creative content. Upload proofs to your Mavenlink projects and keep everyone up to date on the latest comments, uploads, versions and more.
