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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Web browser (OS agnostic)

    This is a great project management tool--we used it specifically for a few software implementations and internal merging of companies in our back office tool. I would recommend this to companies that are looking for a better way to organize their projects outside of e-mail & Word/Excel.

    Pros

    It was quick & easy to set up, create goals/objectives, and share these list/dashboards with my colleagues.

    Cons

    It sometimes felt that the software was lacking/missing pieces of functionality, which made it cumbersome to use.

    Overall, I think Basecamp was helpful for keeping project files and messaging around those files in one place. That was great for projects with lots of people involved who didn't work in the same office. My biggest suggestion would be to make older files a little easier to navigate. I couldn't always remember the file names to search them, so if there were a way to sort things out into groups or something, that might have been nice.

    Pros

    It was nice to have everything in one place so everyone could be on the same page about projects.

    Cons

    It was a little hard to navigate. Looking through all the files could feel a little overwhelming sometimes, especially if looking for older files. If there was a way to organize into groups or something, that might have improved that experience.

    Amazing!

    Pros

    I love everything about this project management tool. I really cannot fault it. I promote it daily because it's a great tool to organize a business or large project.

    Customer service is great. Everything works. No downtime.

    Cons

    Nothing really. Everything works as it should and if you want a feature you just email them and they will look into adding it.

    Its cost is quite accessible and we have obtained benefits from the first day. In general, we have done very well implementing this software, now we are much more efficient and productive!

    Pros

    Basecamp has simplified and considerably improved my working life. What I like most about this software is that it offers automatic reminders, group or individual agendas, document management and activities, among others. In addition, it allows several users to work simultaneously in the same project, it is incredible.

    Cons

    The only thing I do not like about basecamp is that compared to other software, its features and functionalities are quite simple.

    The basecamp navigating can be a bit confusing with how the folders are created. Wish there were less tabs to get through folders.

    Well, my experience has been good, but I still have to learn a little more, but I know that it meets my expectations and with time I will be able to prove it more

    Pros

    Basecamp is a simple software but easy to use and very useful, it is accessible to comparison of other software of its category which is quite good.

    One of the things I like most about BaseCamp is that it allows me to organize myself in the best way possible, it allows me to create a calendar with a diversity of tasks and set the time, it is also quite interesting to be able to establish the tasks that some people do by establishing a date determined delivery, this generates enough order.

    I quite like that it is a software that can be accessed from anywhere, it is just a matter of having it on a phone (android, iphone) or tablet.

    This software allows to have an improvement within the organizations, avoiding errors because you can have a good planning and this is fundamental for the success

    Cons


    I would say that the negative of BaseCamp from my point of view is that in order to access the software it is necessary to have Internet access, which is a bit negative if it is something urgent and you do not have internet to advance or present a certain report

    There are fun features that fit the theme of the software, like the "Campfire" chat, and the "Boost" feature to like comments with emojis.

    Pros

    We use this software for our non-profit board, which has members statewide, to communicate and collaborate on multiple projects simultaneously. I used to receive way to many emails about the non-profit organization that were difficult to keep up with during my day job. Basecamp has different settings to allow for as many or as few alerts as you need. I love being able to get a daily digest so I can quickly scan topics to stay up to date and respond as necessary. We utilize separate "teams" and "projects" to keep things organized and messaging targeted to the right people. Basecamp is very user friendly and easy to use.

    Cons

    I can not think of anything I do not like about Basecamp. We are not taking full advantage of all the functionality, but it more than suits our organization's needs.

    My organization is into event planning and management and its labour intensive because it requires more staff to keep records of the planning and details required to make it a success . Basecamp made the whole process a piece of cake as we were always on time with basecamp.

    Pros

    It actually motivates participants to be time conscious because everyone could see who is late

    Cons

    the emails are way too much, though they could be adjusted, but the incesant email notification is a No.

    I've used Basecamp in a variety of contexts, currently for freelance work and blog projects. It's useful and straightforward, and the integration with email makes it easy to communicate with a team scattered across several cities. It leaves a little to be desired, but works great for what it is!

    Pros

    Everything is easy to find, and laid out in a mostly linear way. It's basically a big collaborative message board with subcategories. It works very well for discussing projects and communicating about the various stages of work being done.

    Cons

    There could more functionality for assigning tasks, measuring progress, building to do lists, and the like. It's a great platform, but it's pretty basic.

    It's helped us get and stay organized, and be more thorough with our projects.

    Pros

    It helped organize our small team, and made it easier to communicate about projects. The ability to assign roles to tasks and get notifications when they're complete is great, and the fact that everyone can see which tasks are late makes it a great motivational tool.

    Cons

    Email notifications. For. Everything. You can turn them off, but I wanted to get reports on things that had been completed/not completed, and you HAVE to get email notifications for that.

    It's been good. The team loves the drag and drop features and notifications. Some additional features and upgrades to the UI could take this from good to exceptional.

    Pros

    Having the ability to see team activity has been extremely valuable for my team. You view who and when contributions, files, etc have been added to folders. Drag and drop functionality works really well.

    Cons

    Revision history seems to be hidden for files. The user interface can use some upgrades. Competitors like Slack and Batterii have really elegant looking UI's. The Basecamp UI looks and feels really juvenile. This is an app for professionals and should reflect that level of collaborative professionalism. File sharing options like those offered in dropbox and Google drive should exist here.
