Basecamp Software


 

Basecamp is a real-time communication tool that helps teams stay on the same page; it’s less for traditional project management tasks (e.g., resource planning and long-term scheduling). With to-do-lists, calendaring, due dates and file-sharing, Basecamp provides a way for teams to keep track of priorities and actionable items.

Since 2004, Basecamp has focused on developing a simple interface in which users can create projects, document progress and manage tasks. It is a web-based software, allowing users to sign in anywhere, any time, either through a web browser or through apps compatible with a large number of mobile devices.

Not specific to a single industry, Basecamp can be deployed by any organization that needs to manage a group, including nonprofits, startups and client service firms—and it can even be used by freelancers. Subscriptions are scalable, with tiers for varying amounts of storage and numbers of users.

Email notifications regarding project updates and recap emails are a great way to manage progress and see what colleagues are accomplishing. It's super easy to navigate and the interface allows less computer savvy co-workers to easily master it's different features.

The project management system works if you work with it. You just have to find a process that works for you.

Pros

Basecamp is constantly improving their project management system. They listen to their customers and seem to always strive to make things work better. We recently switched from BC2 to BC3 and they transition over was excellent. Their customer service team was there and happy to assist in any way possible. BC3 has some great organization features and helps us keep our team on track and functioning well.

Cons

Sometimes the notifications can get a bit overwhelming. In your "Hey!" section every morning, you get a notification for each to-do you have coming up and each to-do that is overdue. Our whole team spends a good two minutes every morning cleaning up out notifications in the "Hey!" section. Really there are few cons.

I've been using Basecamp2 for several years. In speaking with customer support, that version suits our business and what we use Basecamp for better than the latest versions.

Pros

I like being able to pull up files and review discussions no matter where I am, as long as there is an internet connection.

Cons

Clients have let me know they have a hard time gong back to look at older files. Perhaps a better organization system than the "labels" would be helpful.

Pros

Basecamp is a tool for collaborating with teammates all on one platform. I like that you can assign tasks and deadlines to keep others on track.

Cons

Sometimes I find it difficult to follow threads, it would be helpful to have submenus or be able to split topics.

Pros

Basecamp is used for the project management of our different communication projects at the church. I like the ability to invite only the needed people to a task or project and that the notification options can be adjusted to each person's preference.

Cons

Moving from Basecamp 2 to Basecamp 3 created a learning curve, but evened out over time. The only challenge from our end is training the end user on how to utilize the product effectively.

Basecamp 3 May Have Overdone It

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

It is a neat and helpful software, but for the price tag, it's not worth it. If they combined the features of B2 and B3 I would be much more inclined to use it again.

Pros

The ability to keep track of and organize projects is there and there are lots of neat new features in Basecamp 3. Upon request you can still get Basecamp 2.

Cons

The added features and attempt to be more "fun" in B3 went a bit overboard. The alerts can get annoying, losing the important in the nonimportant and the number of different areas to collaborate can become overwhelming and confusing.
My biggest gripe about B3 is they got rid of the calendar. I would have liked to see B3 improve upon the calendar instead of ditching it.

I love the look and feel of Basecamp. It is such an easy tool to pick and use with your teams. The features are very intuitive and easy to use. My team and I picked it up in no time. For my team, we use the tool the most to share documents and files for particular projects.

Cons

It may be on the more expensive for smaller teams. I do wish there were more options to tailor the design and features to individual use.

Value for Money

Pros

Basecamp provides a centralized location for project tasks, assignments, documents, and communication with clients. It truly has become the base for all of our project and project communication. Having tested over 30 other products, I can honestly say it's the best product on the market.

Cons

There are a couple of cons to Basecamp. The inability to track time without a third-party integration is frustrating, mostly because none of the existing third-party integrations are robust enough. We currently use Everhour, and though it's the most robust time tracking interface with Basecamp, it still falls short. It would also be helpful to be able to see the entire teams schedule and not just your individual schedule.

The Basecamp interface is clean and simple. The organization and hierarchy is mostly intuitive. It's the best project and team management tool I've used thus far. The search functionality in particular is quite robust.

Cons

The calendar is hugely disappointing. A calendar functionality exists, but it lacks any sort of ability to filter or otherwise customize the view. It's basically unusable which is a big deal with a project management tool.

Worth trying out for sure!

Pros

It's very easy to setup, get around from section to section. Each tool available has certain features that make it very useful. Having a place to share docs/files is very useful. Can integrate Google Docs too. Notifications are very useful and work great!

Cons

Would like if there were multiple "Campfire" tools available for teams within teams without having to create new projects. I wish calendars could be integrated into the "Schedule" tool, or if an Excel file could be uploaded to populate. Would like to see OneDrive or Dropbox integrated as Google Drive is.

N/A

All in all, it’s a great system, i think it’s important to make a firm plan about how you’ll use it because it has a lot of different features that can be used for a multitude of different purposes!

Pros

I work in an ad agency as an account manager, and I’ve found that basecamp makes the “assigning” part of my job a lot easier. I put in action items for a client and can easily give them a due date and assign to whoever it needs to go to. It also offers a “pings” section I haven’t utilized as much as I wish I did, but that might be because it feels a little poorly integrated.

Cons

I think in some ways, the design can feel a little unintuitive and clunky. I wish pings were more well-integrated with tagging people in comments, etc. I feel like I’m always clicking around trying to find my way to my destination rather than finding a clear path to get there.

I recommend it for anyone who has a remote team all working together, but you are separate from the team. Ideal when the team uses Basecamp to communicate with you.

Pros

Easy to communicate with a single remote team and multiple players in multiple locations
Easy to use - this is key. It can just be used.

Cons

I can only use it for communication, but not actual actions. So it is good to keep information in one spot, see updates, but then the work needs to be done in another software.

It's fantastic if you can get your team to buy-in on the benefits of adopting it into their workflow.

Pros

As a system, it's fantastic to organise projects and teams and information. It works on every platform and device and it integrates with other services very well. If your team buys into using it - it could be killer.

Cons

For some of the team, I couldn't get them away from email and into Basecamp. It's a new way of communicating and for some people, that's a huge struggle for them to get into. It's actually why we stopped trying to use it. We couldn't get 100% buy-in, and unless you have that the system falls apart.

It was a great introduction into the ways that our team could move into a more manageable way of completing our tasks. We were overwhelming each other via email without any ability to sort, and so this helped us to better organize our workflow.

Pros

Everything you need to manage a remote staff. As long as everyone is bought in, and has a handle on how the features will be best utilized by your team, then you are tapping into a tool to save you a lot of time and effort. Get away from timely emails that just pile up, and have tangible tasks and watch the progress happen!

Cons

This software certainly has all the bells and whistles, but it was a little too much for my older staff to figure out. I can't really fault the software, but give more a word of caution that there are some other solutions we have moved to given the more limited nature of our work in online tasking.

We were able to collaborate with a team that worked in multiple locations easily. THe layout of the screens was by project and allowed a task list to be created and adhered to.

Pros

Easy to use; easy to go back and find files related to a project; easy collaboration; allowed us to work on a project with people from multiple locations easily (1 in Nebraska, 1 in California and 1 in Colorado). I have often referred back to closed projects to look up links to data and download information.

Cons

Email notifications can get cumbersome. There would be a notification for each project that was sent automatically and seemed very repetitive. It might be a setting that can be configured, but I did not take the time to figure it out.

Working with Basecamp gives you chance to do your job more easily and with more efficient ways to collaborate with your co-workers. And autosave tool is perfect, like Google Suite it saves everything immediately, so you don't have to save everything.

Pros

We currently using Basecamp in our department. Basecamp is such type of project managing service leads you do almost every kind of things about your works. So, the main reason to using it its simplicity, Basecamp well designed and easy program which provide you work with all projects. As a software developer I always need project management software to colloborate with my staff and also work with my projects and events. And Basecamp suits me perfectly.

Cons

I dislike that it's sometimes difficult to convince others who have degrees or certifications in project management (or those who would like to be such people) that Basecamp is a true powerhouse of project management. It's design is "friendly" rather than technical. It's "human" and even "comical" at times when some project managers are looking for something that feels difficult and serious to work with. Basecamp has super helpful reports, but if you want to show or export analytical and technical readouts on project status, Basecamp isn't that. For me, this is not a negative, but I tend to like focusing on completing the project rather than on managing it.

Pros

I've used 5 project management systems in the last 10 years. Basecamp is my favorite by far. As with any system, you get what you put in. Success depends on internal organization and everyone being on the same page. But that aside, Basecamp makes keeping track of tasks pretty dang easy.

Cons

It can be hard to keep everything organized if people use their own naming schemes and organizational standards. With lots of other services in play (Google Docs, Dropbox, LastPass), it can be hard to centralize all the information.
