Mavenlink is a pricey software that is marked with spotty customer service and is compared to a Jackson Pollock’s painting (by expert reviewer Wesley Kriz) as a software that is too abstract to understand. Most of the enterprise capabilities it offers are limited to the highest tier of service. Celoxis, on the other hand, offers a comprehensive solution to project and work management at a simple and predictable price point making it a more favorable solution to enterprise project management.

Let’s look at some facts.


Mavenlink’s project management capabilities does not include the dynamics of real-world project planning and scheduling.

# Features Celoxis Mavenlink
1 Auto Scheduling based on Resource Hours and Vacations
2 Manual Scheduling
3 Fixed Effort, Fixed Duration, Fixed Units Scheduling
4 Inter-project Dependencies
5 Recurring Tasks
6 Two-way Microsoft Project Sync
7 Calendar View
8 Kanban View
9 Multiple Dashboards
10 Earned Value Analysis (EVA)
11 Status Updates by Email
12 Project Templates
13 Interactive Gantt Chart (drag/drop/interactive)
14 Critical Path
15 Baselining
16 Visual Health Indicators
17 Schedule Projections
18 Planned vs Actual Tracking
19 Milestone-based Tracking
20 Track Billable and non-billable Tasks
21 Change Request Management

Mavenlink’s time tracking lacks the much needed flexibility and tools for dynamic teams.

# Features Celoxis Mavenlink
1 Auto-fill rows on Weekly Timesheets with Task Assignments
2 Fill Time via Email
3 Automatic Timesheet Reminders
4 Incomplete Timesheet Reporting
5 Activity Codes
6 Configurable Multilevel Time Approval Workflow
7 One-click Approvals
8 Auto Approvals
9 Weekly Timesheet
10 Timers
11 Fill Time for Another User (Proxy)
12 Non-project Time

Mavenlink lacks the capability to include multiple distinct project-related discussions, which are crucial in managing large and diverse projects. Lack of an in-app notification center makes it difficult to stay on top of your priorities without checking your email or a 3rd-party app like Slack.

# Features Celoxis Mavenlink
1 Project Discussions
2 In-app Notification Center
3 Activity Stream
4 @mention comments
5 Free Client Collaboration
6 Task Comments
7 File Sharing
8 Document Management

While Mavenlink is a full-featured project management platform, most of the enterprise features are limited to highest tier of service, making it a pricey affair!

Mavenlink does not offer integrated expense management for accurately recording and tracking project costs related to equipments, people, legal, travel, etc. Managing expenses and receipts is a nightmare without integrating (and paying for) a 3rd party software.

# Features Celoxis Mavenlink
1 One-click Approvals
2 Reimbursable Expenses
3 Expense Codes

Mavenlink’s bug and issue tracking solution is a fairly basic offering and does not offer customization and comprehensive reporting.

4 Fill & Track Time Spent on Bugs and Issues
