Overview
Basecamp
Basecamp is more than just a project management tool — it’s a better way to work. Teams that switch to Basecamp are more productive and better organized. They communicate better and require fewer meetings. And they’re far more efficient than before. Here’s how Basecamp makes it happen.

Larger enterprises may find Basecamp's set $99 per month cost attractive, but small teams may find greater value elsewhere

Basecamp, a project management veteran, was founded in 2004 and has grown to a customer base of 3.5 million customers. The software claims its capacity to replace a variety of other paying monthly services, including Slack and Dropbox. While the program isn't often a comprehensive substitute, it does combine many of the functions of various tools into one system at EduRef. Scheduling and calendars are provided, as well as a real-time chat, private messaging, file storage, and more. A clean UI and powerful search capabilities make it simple to locate the task, image, or message you're looking for, and a robust reporting suite allows you to drill down as far as you need to. With e-mail integration and the option to share specific assignments and messages with persons outside the organization, working with customers is a breeze. Notifications can be tailored to your needs, including being turned off outside of business hours.

Pros :
  • Its home dashboard will automatically give you a macro-perspective view of the organizations, teams, and projects you are managing.
  • Users can meticulously arrange meetings through Basecamp. One of its essential tools, “Schedule,” allows users to schedule events like a meeting.
  • You can do so by clicking a date on a calendar and filling out the information to indicate the event’s time, provide notes or descriptions about it (even attach documents), add meeting participants, and determine the event’s frequency.
  • You can select when to send a reminder at a preferred time-- whether on the day or one or two days before the event.
Cons :
  • While it’s possible to integrate Basecamp with a plethora of cloud applications like Microsoft Teams, you may have to do so by using an independent platform.

Project Management tool

At Mirror Coop, we tried Basecamp. Basecamp is pretty much a ProjectManagement tool that allows you to create To-do lists (create tasks and assign them) and schedule them into calendars so you can effectively supervise and manage several projects.It is also very fast and easy to use (There is an introduction video when you start using it).It allows communication, direct messaging, real-time group chats, and message board between the teams. It also allows for team collaboration and there is a file storage limit of up to 500GB which is pretty much.However, Basecamp is a bit pricey at $99 a month for a team as opposed to other remote working tools like Slack which even has a freemium plan. Also, while it offers great messaging tools, there is no video or audio communication option which can come in handy.Basecamp doesn’t offer time tracking and although you can add comments and notes to To-do lists, it doesn’t support subtasks. This means you have to generate a whole new To-Do list every time.

Good base for collaboration

User-friendly and has everything you need

If you’re searching for a project management tool, you should look at basecamp. Basecamp is my favorite solution at Versandgigant (and we’ve tried a lot). It’s user-friendly and has everything you need. If you need a con it would be the integrations. I like to use integrate to forward emails to certain cards and boards. Basecamp recently launched a new personal plan which offers a free service for freelancers and smaller private projects.

Much more attractive and easier to use

As the owner of DailyPest and an entrepreneur with a hand in several on-going endeavors, I can really appreciate this question. I have several years of experience (thousands of hours) working with popular content management systems and major platforms.

In my humble opinion, If you have a heavy workload to track, with multiple employees involved in the process, Basecamp is excellent alternatives to endless shuffling cards from column to column and checking boxes on other software. That said, I find Basecamp the much more attractive and easier for use.

Easy to use and Great

Pros: Ease of Use, Flexibility to create internal threads, cost-effective, mobile-friendly, a friendly text edit - Trix available.

Cons: For large projects - the communication might become scattered, There is no flexibility to create a thread that is only accessible by a few team members and not all.

Overall Experience: Quite satisfied so far, been using it for almost a decade now. However, still open to explore new softwares if they are user-friendly.
