Business Intelligence Solution Helps Services Firms Increase Margins, Improve Utilization, and Better Forecast Revenue and Resources
IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 24, 2016 — Mavenlink, a leading provider of project management and resource planning software and a Gartner 2015 Cool Vendor*, announced today that Mavenlink Insights has been named a finalist in the 2016 BIG Innovation Awards.
Mavenlink Insights is an enterprise-grade business intelligence (BI) solution designed for firms that deliver services and project-based work. Historically, these organizations have operated on disparate business applications that create fragmented information environments. By centralizing data in one platform, Mavenlink Insights gives unparalleled visibility into critical trends and issues impacting these firms. This enables executive teams and managers to make swift, informed decisions that improve business performance.
“Firms that deliver services and project-based work have been historically underserved by technology,” Mavenlink CEO and co-founder Ray Grainger said. “Until now, they have never had a single platform to plan and deliver work, track project financials, and view performance trends around margins and utilization. We are honored Mavenlink Insights has been recognized for its innovation in helping these firms elevate their performance and make confident decisions that have an immediate and positive impact on their business.”
Mavenlink Insights Improves Accuracy, Agility, Performance, ROI
A recent report titled, “Blue State Digital Consolidates Systems and Distributes Accountability,” highlights how leading media agency, Blue State Digital, struggled to scale before they had actionable BI from Mavenlink Insights. To turn data into intelligence, they used a time-consuming and cumbersome process that required pulling data from siloed systems into spreadsheets and performing manual calculations. As the firm thrived, its data quality suffered. They were also forced to analyze their business after the fact. By implementing Mavenlink Insights, they now have real-time visibility into performance, greater business agility, and improved project predictability.
“Our business moves very fast, and we need to get key information in people’s hands quickly so they can make decisions,” said Blue State Digital Operations Analyst Erika Bellido. “Using Mavenlink, we are all looking at the same data, and are all on the same page. With immediate insight into projects, no one in our business is looking at anything different.”
2016 BIG Innovation Awards
Presented by the Business Intelligence Group, the BIG Innovation Awards recognize organizations and people who bring new ideas to life. Nominations were considered from across the globe, and scored by a hand-selected panel of experts and business leaders.
“It was clear to our judges that Mavenlink Insights was deserving of being recognized as a leader in innovation and we are proud to announce them as a finalist in the 2016 BIG Innovation Award,” said Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. “Congratulations to the entire team. This is well-deserved recognition of your pursuit of excellence and creativity in solving problems.”
