”Mavenlink is leading the industry in integrated project management and sales technology.” - Orie Ward, Senior Partner at Philogic

Q: Sean Crafts (Mavenlink Co-Founder) - Can you tell us a little about your business?

A: Orie Ward - Founded 2007, Philogic (pH) is a management consulting firm that helps businesses and non-profits develop infrastructure by custom-making business models and processes that are designed to increase efficiency, productivity, and profitability. The aim of our models is to add to the value, lifespan, and net worth of your business.

Q: Sean - How did you find Mavenlink?

A: Orie - We were looking for an online project management tool and found Mavenlink in the Google Apps Marketplace.

Q: Sean - What pain points has Mavenlink helped solve?

A: Orie - Mavenlink has allowed us to more efficiently track our billable hours. Its streaming project feed allows us coordinate our projects and keep more accurate records of our client interactions.

Q: Sean - What do your clients, consultants, and fellow co-workers say about Mavenlink?

A: Orie - Our Team at Philogic believes in the type of product Mavenlink provides. Their technology undoubtedly makes us more productive and efficient. It helps make task-oriented work measurable and it creates an open platform for consultants to engage Clients.

Save another module for the CRM where we can track touches, drips, and Centers of Influence who become Clients and generate referrals, Mavenlink is leading the industry in integrated project management and sales technology.

Q: Sean - Please explain the Results of using Mavenlink and Google Apps.

A: Orie - The result of using both Mavenlink and Google Apps is that we have been able to integrate our calendar, contacts, and users from Google with all types of business development and communications tools in the Marketplace. Mavenlink provides us with this same functionality. We have been able to coordinate our Calendar with Project Timelines. Our project tasks and deliverables are made available in google so that we can keep track of progress and our online invoices are easily stored because Mavenlink sends email correspondence per transaction.

Q: Sean - Anything else you want to tell us or features you’d like to see?

A: Orie - We look forward to seeing great things from Mavenlink, such as customer relationship management features. It would be great if Mavenlink's CRM platform utilized more of the conventional functions such as tracking and storing sales leads (prospects) for future engagement. If we could even coordinate distribution lists to send communications to our prospects and current client base. This would be extraordinarily helpful and would enhance the quality of Mavenlink's platform.
