I like how it notifies and reminds new tasks. I don’t have to remember all at once. It’s really great! What I like least about this software is the price. It is kind of expensive. If only the company can offer discounts, it would be better. It helped me to be more organized -via Capterra

I mostly like it’s features and the overall quality is pretty good. I am really impressed with its functionalities. I didn’t find much wrong with this software but like every other software, it can still get better. -via Capterra

What I like most about basecamp is that it allows you to share files to work collaboratively with other users. It also has various tools for editing texts and the creation of task lists that allow the delegation of activities to each member who is participating in the project. What I liked least in my experience with basecamp is that it can be complex to learn how to use its different tools, it requires an exclusive learning time for its correct use. Basecamp has been a really useful and practical tool in my work life. Since I use it, I have improved the efficiency and productivity of my work team -via Capterra

The specific sectioned areas allow you to separate the work and assign it to different people, yet allow all team members to see how everything is working together & check in on each other. Price point regardless of the size of your organization is another great concept. I truly don’t see cons except it takes just a little bit of time to adjust to the formatting and getting everyone on your team to make sure updates go through the portal and not just verbally/through email communication. Allowing all members to seamlessly work together is the biggest draw for the software. You can check up on other people but, at the same time, keep projects and teams separate so focus can be put on their individual duties. -via Capterra

Basecamp is a great way to keep all my projects organized. Love it. The software is super friendly for everyone. I would say I don’t particularly like the layout of the software, I wish there would be an option for personalizing the layout. -via Capterra

Provider Overview

 

Basecamp is a cloud-based project and work management platform that has been around almost 20 years.  The company started with just 4 people in Chicago and has grown tremendously.  Basecamp now serves over 100,000 companies around the globe and its founders have published a number of books on creating a happy and healthy workplace.  Basecamp was formerly called 37signals.  The name was changed to Basecamp in 2014.  It was named after the company’s most popular product, the Basecamp platform.

The main thing that makes Basecamp unique is its pricing structure.  It has a simple flat monthly fee for everyone.  While this may make Basecamp more of an investment than some other platforms that have pricing options, it is still an affordable option for SMBs.  The pricing structure also feels very democratic.  There won’t be any features that you miss out on, or feel like you’ve wasted money on.

Besides all of the features that we would expect from a work management platform, there are a few unique features that Basecamp offers.  It has an exclusive analytic tool called Hill Charts, which is used to tack progress in a visual way.  Another unique feature is a prominent display on the top of emails, tasks, comments and assignments specifying whether it is private or visible to clients (check out the screenshots for an example of this).  Finally, Basecamp can be used via email, so clients can reply directly to an email if they don’t want to use the Basecamp platform.

Aside from the powerful platform that Basecamp has, it primarily focuses on simplicity, clarity, ease-of-use and honesty.  Basecamp claims that it has invested heavily in infrastructure, great design, and customer service.  The result is an intuitive and fun platform.
