RPI is excited to announce we will be Going-Live on December 1st, 2019 with a new Project Management tool, Mavenlink!
Mavenlink is a modern project management platform that combines powerful project management and administration tools with an intuitive and collaborative client portal. With the Mavenlink portal, you will be able to view important project information and collaborate live with your project team:
- View and Collaborate with a Live Activity Feed
- View Task Level Statuses and Live Updates
- View and Update Client Dependencies and Tasks
- View Current and Past Invoices and Payment Status
- View Live Project Budget Information by Phase
- Improved Monthly Budget Reporting & Intelligence
With Mavenlink, RPI Consultants will be able to provide more value per hour billed to your projects, and give you access to information and tools that will enable our teams to work together better! Our intention is to be able to provide better transparency and greater efficiency in everything we do, a continued investment in creating real and meaningful partnership with our clients.
What’s the Big Deal?
First and foremost, if you are currently engaged with us in an active project, nothing has to change with the day-to-day management of your project! For your current projects, the new Mavenlink collaboration features and benefits are completely optional and up to you and your project manager to discuss and implement. For future projects, the Mavenlink client portal will be incorporated into project administration.
The only change that will impact all current and future projects is that invoices will now be billed monthly on the 1st instead of bi-monthly on the 1st and 15th. For current projects, that means you will receive one invoice for December instead of two. For Managed Services or Milestone-based projects, there will be no change to billing.
But What if You Want to Use Mavenlink Features Now?
Great question and we think you should!
Effectively, the Mavenlink client portal will be available to all current projects as of December 1st, 2019. While the project team is not required to start using the portal, it will be available at no additional cost and with no additional scope added to the project. We encourage you to have a conversation with your project manager to discuss the specific features and benefits that could help your project. If you would like to start using it, we will be happy to provide training!
If you want more information on this change, or if you need an amendment to cover the billing changes, please contact your Project Manager or Project Coordinator, or you can email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
