Ravetree is an all-in-one work management solution for project-driven organizations and teams with tools for managing projects, time, resources, and clients. With features such as a custom dashboard, time and expense tracking, file management, commenting, invoice processing, agile capabilities, reporting, a client portal, and more, Ravetree aims to provide a full-featured solution for agile work management.
In order to unify teams and simplify communications Ravetree provides users with access to team comment feeds with attachments, @mentions, and sub-comments, as well as Kanban and Scrum custom workflows, request forms for submitting project ideas, real-time project progress tracking, and more. The drag and drop interface within the Kanban workflow tool allows team members to move work items along the workflow as tasks are completed or projects change. Permissions and approval processes can be customized by administrators to determine which team members have access to content and who has the final say on files and projects.
Maximize visibility and provide business transparency to all team members with Ravetree’s automated alerts, timesheets, expense tracking, client database, reporting, and more. Team leaders can monitor and manage their employees with resource planning tools which provide insight into who is under and over utilized, real-time visibility into project progress with financial estimating, and agile tools such as sprints, backlog management, user stories, and more.
Over the past 5 years, we've utilized most/all of the leading project management systems and this is the first time that we've been able to find a lasting and meaningful relationship. Perhaps it was just the right tool at the right time. But I prefer to believe it was the right tool that we could have found at any time...ideally several years earlier than we did so we could have avoided all that heartache with other tools.
Ravetree feels like the perfect blend of being universal enough for the masses and customized for the individual peculiarities of a mid-market full-service advertising agency of 35 people (i.e. us). In addition, Customer rep has consistently delivered the human element of a technology/subscription delivery and made it feel like we were a priority at each at every turn.
It's nit-picking, but with technical updates and feature changes things inevitably break. That's completely understandable, but a little too often it has felt like we were the ones discovering those issues/bugs and we often lacked a heads up that change was upcoming.
Great customer service and response time. Easy navigation and setup.
Incorporates Sales, Project Management, Finances, task management and resource management all in one. The Agile functionality is key for our business and was the core reason it was selected above other vendors.
Overall view of tasks for teams across production and projects.
The CRM component does not fully integrate with the Projects. Once an opportunity has been converted it would be great to automatically trigger Project setup. Retainer functionality does not suit our needs entirely but we have a unique offering.
What I like most is that you can easily track multiple projects, owners and milestones in a click of a button.
Sometimes, getting alerts can be difficult. If you miss an email, you may miss an update or a tag in Ravetree. I wish there was a more easily digestible dashboard when you login to review the updates related to your projects.
Hi Katie, we're glad that you're finding Ravetree useful.
One thing you may want to try out is our "Alerts" feature. Alerts allow you to create automated notifications that are sent to you when certain conditions are met. For example, you can receive an alert if you forgot to log time yesterday, or if you have work items or projects that are overdue. There are lots of possibilities for how you can set this up.
With regard to the dashboard, we welcome your feedback. There are dozens of dashboard widgets for you to choose from, but if you'd like to see something specific, the let us know¿we're happy to build out new features so you can achieve the highest level of success!
Ravetree practically runs our business!
Ravetree has transformed our business. Things that used to take multiple software and apps are now under one umbrella. The entire team loves Ravetree, and it's so amazingly powerful.
The only con I can say about Ravetree is that, since it has so many capabilities, it can be a bit overwhelming to start with. It's really best to take it gradually, as you learn all the system can do.
It keeps my days organized and my projects easily accessible, all in one place.
The overall aesthetic of Ravetree is awesome. It also has a pretty intuitive user experience. The kanban board is a useful feature and I like being able to see how many billable and non-billable hours I'm logging each day.
I wish the home board was customizable and that there weren't as many time logging glitches. Also, sometimes, when you search for a project by client name, it doesn't turn up in search results even though the project is active. It only pulls up if you know the exact name of the project, which kind of defeats the purpose of the search by client if you can't remember the specific project name.
