Excel spreadsheets and Netsuite OpenAir carried BTM through the early years. As the company grew major customizations were needed. BTM reached the breaking point when these tools began to impact productivity. BTM’s search for a better way led them to Mavenlink.
“Nothing came close to what Mavenlink could do,” said Tom Schoen, President and CEO of BTM Global Consulting.

Mavenlink’s utilization reports, capacity planning reports, and a wide variety of customized reports helped BTM managers create the critical project and resource updates they needed with no coding.
