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.

Easy to use and upload files as well as collaborate with teammates. Can see who makes edits and when files are uploaded easily. Very good product to share within a company

A lot to learn to use. The learning curve can be steep and be a large adjustment to some people. Still recommend the product though.

Pros

I like Basecamp because I feel that with this platform it is much easier to create each project, and also, it is much easier to share them through the team chat offered by Basecamp, this platform has really valuable functions in the long term.

Cons

I would like Basecamp to improve its prices, I have really noticed that this platform does not have a good quality-price to offer users, I would like to take into account companies with few resources and that can offer lower prices for them to access to those plans.

You can't go wrong with simplifying your life while succeeding at project management!

Pros

Now this is a program I can get behind. New project managers should totally get comfy with this software for this is something that can make your lives sooooo much easier. Yeah there are a million ways to do this but Basecamp's easy functionality and ease of use has just made this a winner!

Cons

The amount of tools rolled into one can be alarming at first. PRICE!! BUT if you look at all the tools you pay for that do what basecamp can do then you still WIN.

Utilized Basecamp for multiple web and mobile application development projects, and found that adding members and managing the tasks is very direct and organized.

Pros

- Strong collaborative tool with easy alerting and administrative management
- Simple and functional task management design with a focus on agile development
- Cross-departmental and organizational functionality that allows for a strong centralized project management location
- Large task listing options with integrated attachment and commenting capabilities

Cons

- Task management assignment and monitoring can become cumbersome and disjointed on larger scale projects.
- Focused more on functionality then aesthetics making monitoring tedious at times
- Disjointed formatting across the multiple features and functions can be complicated for the less technical users

Pros

It's a versatile, fairly user-friendly way for people to see and access information. It seems like project management software for those who consider project management scary or obtuse.

Cons

I really don't have anything negative to say about it, except that- and this is likely a "me" thing, I haven't really spent the time to explore all of the features, while I normally DO. I don't know if that's because I simply haven't had a need to do so, or if something about the interface makes it more difficult to explore (though I found it easy to do everything I needed).

Pros

Great for people who are seeking to have their to-do list shared with others. It helps your team know that tasks to be completed, along with who needs to complete them.

Cons

Constant reminders. If you like to constantly be reminded about a task to be done, then this isn't too much of a con, but for people who are trying to get work done and know they need to get back to the task, a CONSTANT reminder, doesn't help. And sometimes may lead you to get frustrated.

Basecamp is a great product especially when working with vendors or other companies.

Pros

Basecamp is user friendly and extremely approachable. We use it with a number of our vendors and we use it internally. It has provided the most benefit in working with our vendors as it gives us a clear way of outlining and tracking projects. The overall presentation of the software is much easier to follow and interpret than many of the project management tools out there.

Cons

It can be hard to get employees to work on a project management tool and Basecamp does little to address that. It provides e-mails when and reminders when communication takes place on the platform but this can overwhelm your inbox and is not always relevant information.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Unlike most of the other PM tools I have used in the last several years, Basecamp's smart but limited features prevents the tool from becoming the focus of your work.

Pros

Basecamp's features, layout, notification management, and software philosophy goes a long to helping you keep first things first — your project. It doesn't offer so many options that you end up spending more time managing your project than doing your project.

Cons

Basecamp 3, the latest version, needs more and better integrations with other software. Basecamp 2 was more robust in this respect. Also, it needs to enable users to integrate with Zapier in a way that allows use of templates. Right now, that's not an option.

Pros

We've been using basecamp in lieu of a previous project management resource, and I like the straightforward interface and the fact that I can invite external users to comment, collaborate and share resources

Cons

For our SMB, it is costly for everyone to have a subscription. To get around this, we limit Basecamp to instances where external collaboration between our project leads and external users is required to minimize the number of licenses.

The most important factor of Basecamp :
-use it to work on your projects and collaborate with clients,
-it's real-time respondent(you and the other person); when you leave the page, you can go back anytime you want without seeing the window refreshing.
-it accept any type of files for attachment

Pros

Unlimited and easy to post tasks and attached documents / files even via Google files. Basecamp is an user-friendly app and software sharing.

Cons

If you have sensitive projects data and other information then you should probably avoid using the App since it is a software sharing.

If you want to have an all-in-one app, this is what you need. Sharing files, chat, announcements, tasks, activity tracking and a lot more to help you and your organization!

Pros

-Creating groups like teams and projects are helpful for me! I can easily message, chat, assign tasks, and share files in a specific group of people.

-It is very user-friendly and my clients love it! Tip: You have an option to add your clients or anyone outside your organization and choose what files they can see.

-I can easily track my work for the day as I Basecamp notifies me for every task assignment.

Cons

Haven't seen any con, only that the app is quite plain to the eyes. The profile picture icons are a bit small, too. Can't see the faces thag much.

I would like Baseamp to change the design, it is very annoying that they have a design for so many years, this bothers the users. A better design, much more renewed and that is currently, would generate more controversy.

Good first project management software for non-technical teams.

Pros

Anyone can use it, including people who never log in. Intuitive and clean. Very functional for any level of user. Highly customizable.

Cons

Sometimes feels unnecessary, not everyone will log on or want to be involved in a "project". Feels like a "busy work" task for users to log in and participate if they do not want to.

I enjoy Basecamp 2. If it had task dependencies, ability to pin critical notes, and a passable basic CRM, I'd stick around.

Pros

friendly, intuitive interface
easy to loop in team members
good API
doesn't try to be all things to all people
design is clean and relaxing
good value for the money

Cons

email integration has too much friction and is poorly placed on the page
you can't create task dependencies
customer forum went away
37Signals stopped development of Basecamp 2 (which we've been using) in favor of Basecamp 3 which is not as good a product
no ability to pin critical notes / discussions so they don't get buried

It provides with me a tool to manage multiple projects.

Pros

I love this software for three main reasons. 1) The ability to share specific projects with stakeholders of the project. 2) The ability to email updates to a specific project. 3) A centralized calendar for all my project key dates.

Overall, it's a great place to manage a project with a ton of deliverables.

Cons

What I dislike about this software stems mostly from functionality? I would love to be able to duplicate a project timeline. I would also love to have the ability to set up deliverable timetables so that I can input a start date or end date and they would create a timeline for me based on parameters established.

We're able to collaborate on projects and create a centralized service of different articles.

Pros

At our company we find that our teams needed a way to track projects and collaborate. Luckily Basecamp helps us accomplish this and we find it works easily enough that people are notified and can contribute easily. As updates are emailed as well, it makes it easy to search for articles easily.

Cons

It is very expensive for what you are getting, and the support for the software is very light. The few instances I've had to contact their support I have had to email to follow up as they have forgotten on a few occasions to follow up with me.

We felt that the "all in one" nature of the software was great, but beyond our initial tests we found it lacking in adaptability to fitting into the way WE work, (it wants you to wholly adopt their approach and we felt that there was an internal resistance to that development style) - therefore we abandoned the platform and looked for alternatives.

Pros

For years we have been looking for an all in one project and task management system to use with our business. And BaseCamp is so nearly it, it has most of the features you'd expect but presents them in a different way to most other task tracking systems.

On the positive side, it's easy to use, friendly to the eye and everything is where it should be. It has some nifty features that you can easily become over-reliant on that aren't present in other management software tools. One recent addition was the Hill Chart where you plot a task on an "planning hill" - in a really visual way. This is totally unique and works well, helping you quickly identify the progress of any given task.

As a project manager, this is a very useful way of seeing where everything currently "is at"

Cons

Onto the Cons: For us, we found that the software was too verbose in its approach, it has a work log system where each user is expected to fill in a diary of what they have done today - sure, this can be switched off in the options, but the regularity of BaseCamp e-mailing you is far too high as a default. By default you're constantly managing e-mails from the system (which is precisely what is is meant to eliminate!)

Once you disable these notifications, we felt that the software starts to lose its impact, our staff started to drift away from it over time and went back to other task tracking methods (such as trello) for different areas of the development. This caused us to reconsider the entire enterprise and look for alternatives, our team just couldn't seem to adopt the (very rigid) way that Basecamp wants you to work.

I like the how the UI is made which enables different people in a group involved in a certain project to track each others work. Also the ability to store files which can be accessed by everyone makes this software ideal for a huge project with many people involved.

Cons

what i disliked the most was the frequent update everyday in the morning which was rather annoying.

Takes a bit of time to set up and the interface leaves a lot to be desired (Seems somewhat outdated and might put people off)
