IRVINE, CA (PRNewswire – Oct. 11, 2016) – Mavenlink, the leading provider of project management and resource planning software for services organizations and a Gartner Cool Vendor*, announced today that it was named Outstanding Private Technology Company of the Year at the Orange County (OC) Tech Alliance’s 23rd Annual High-Tech Innovation Awards.
The award-winning Mavenlink platform serves services firms and embedded services organizations. Historically, these organizations have operated in disparate business applications and spreadsheets that result in siloed information environments and constrained operating practices. Mavenlink unifies all critical functions of a services organization, allowing them to plan and deliver work, manage project financials and resources, and collaborate with distributed teams and clients, in a single platform. The result is a comprehensive and dynamic view of the business that offers unrivaled control and a means to significantly uplevel performance.
“We are honored that Mavenlink has been recognized for its strategy and innovation in building the digital infrastructure for a growing, $3 trillion global services market,” said Ray Grainger, Mavenlink’s CEO and co-founder. “This is an extraordinarily exciting time for our company, and the services industry. There is a huge opportunity for firms to capitalize on increasing global demand as a result of an escalating thirst for hyper-specialized skills and unprecedented adoption of outsourcing. Our growth and momentum is evidence that we are helping services providers take these significant market shifts and opportunities head on. With Mavenlink, firms are able to operate, scale, and thrive like never before.”
The award follows several recent distinctions Mavenlink has received in 2016 for its innovative solution, company growth and customer satisfaction:
- Software Advice, a Gartner company, named Mavenlink a Leader in the 2016 FrontRunners quadrant for Project Management software, based upon performance and value for its customers.
- G2 Crowd, the world’s leading business software review platform, named Mavenlink a leader in the Summer 2016 Project Management Software Grid based on its strong customer satisfaction score and large market presence.
- Red Herring named Mavenlink a 2016 Red Herring Top 100 North America winner, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most outstanding entrepreneurs and promising private technology ventures.
- Mavenlink was named a 2016 BIG Innovation Award Finalist for the launch of Mavenlink Insights, an enterprise-grade business intelligence solution designed to help services firms increase margins, improve utilization, and better forecast revenue and resources.
Mavenlink also recently announced a major expansion plan that includes opening two new U.S. locations, expanding its currentSan Francisco engineering and product headquarters, rapidly adding jobs at its Irvine headquarters, and a new European headquarters in London. The plan will help Mavenlink accommodate a significant increase in employee headcount, accelerate product innovation, scale business opportunities and better serve its rapidly growing international client base.
“While all of the finalists were deserving, our judges felt Mavenlink stood out in this highly competitive category,” said Peter Craig, CEO, OC Tech Alliance. “We congratulate Mavenlink for winning the 2016 award. I’d also like to acknowledge all of the finalists for their nominations.
