Great for intensive projects

2016-08-30

We use Basecamp to onboard new hires at our marketing agency. I think it's a decent system, but it could use a little more of a visual interface. I think sometimes the text on our project pages is hard to look at.

Pros

I love that Basecamp autosaves everything. It's a small thing, but some systems don't do this and it is inconvenient when you lose information. I also think that Basecamp is awesome for more intensive projects. You can house a lot of information in one spot and the website works pretty fast. The to-do lists in Basecamp are my favorite thing!

Cons

I think there are other easier project management systems.

best project management application

2018-07-06

easy project tracking

Pros

Basecamp really helps in managing organization workflow by using features like file sharing ,hence all members can share files and resources at real time. This application aids the team to be upto date with any information in the organization ,this has been facilitated through other features like calendars ,to do list and due-dates

Cons

Due to easy file sharing , sensitive data may accidentally land in wrong hands, i thing the developer team should also include file inscription feature

Has worked great to manage the projects I had

2017-08-09

Easy project management and execution

Pros

The software was very easy of use. All of the members on our team like this. It gave us the ability to manage the projects and execute effectively.

Cons

There were not really any cons to this. I would like the ability to pay vendors through here or an easy link to PayPal or something.

Time saving and easy to communicate with everyone. Helps to keep me on top on completion of any task.

Pros

Basecamp helps our business tasks to be done easily. It is very friendly to use and it is pretty handy.

Cons

I suggest to go for some other tool if it is a complicated project as it can handle only small and easier projects.

Great way to track projects

2018-07-12

It allows for easy project collaboration!

Pros

We use Basecamp to keep track of projects. As it's set up to be a collaborative platform, it works seamlessly. Everyone can contribute to the posts. Making it great for project collaboration.

Cons

It's very light on features. For it's purpose it does the basic requisite functions but there's just that missing "oomph" of additional ease of use features.

Best thing to happen to project management in a long time

2017-05-16

Easy project management for every person involved with the project.

Pros

Easy to manage multiple concurrent projects at the same time. Easy to invite non-basecamp users into existing projects. The to-do lists are very simple and easy to follow. All project members are always on the same page thanks to email updates and notifications of new content. Even users who are not computer savvy find it simple to get updates and add comments. The file uploading is also nice to keep all documentation in one place. Couldn't imagine trying to manage more than one project at a time without using basecamp.

Cons

Not necessarily a con, but it seems like the owner of the basecamp account gets added to every project automatically. We tried to allow a separate user base to test out basecamp and the owner of the account was added to the project automatically and received updates.

Easy management of projects. Easy project updates and artifact storage.

Pros

I love the web interface and easy setup for on onboarding projects. The ability to use multiple devices is really helpful.

Cons

It would be helpful if the mobile app worked better on a tablet. I would like to have more choices in configuring agile types of processes.

Easy project management, better communication and a single place to store all elements for a project.

Pros

The intuitive interface, the project features, templates and ability to add both internal and external users to the project.

Cons

Not a fan of the calendar and wish there was a way to have it work with our agency calendar on Google.

Used basecamp for a project with another company last year. Overall easy to use!

2018-02-07

Easy for project management!

Pros

I like that I could go back and find items that had been sent/received in the past easily and review things.

Cons

It seemed like there were lots of places to have different conversations at first. It was a little hard to navigate at first, but I caught on shortly.

Pros

Ease of team collaboration Easy project management Easy sharing of projects internally and externally

Cons

With larger teams, notification overload is an easy possibility Organizing replies in conversations could use work

A good project management tool.

2016-11-05

It's pretty easy to use, but we've definitely use easier project management tools, like Trello, more often.

Pros

To save time/increase efficiency, you can clone similar projects from an existing project, which is nice. They have a mobile app as well, which is nice when you are on the go.

Cons

Support system could be better, and generally speaking, I think some other project management systems are easier to use.

Easy first-time Project Management software

2018-06-05

This was our first attempt at Project Management software. We were looking at products that we could integrate with Salesforce and our CRM. Basecamp was a good first step, but we will probably need to upgrade to a more robust package down the road.

Pros

Easy to assign tasks with deadlines and reminders. Easy project status tracking - including upcoming deadlines and missed deadlines.

Cons

Often received duplicate messages (email and Basecamp) which created a bottleneck. Required users to remember to log-in to update status - otherwise information was out-of-date. (As project manager, I spent a lot of time chasing information for updates, because the users would often "forget" to check Basecamp.) Training was very good, but it was time consuming - and many users opted out of taking it. System is easy enough to use through trial and error, however.

An easy to use, basic task management software.

2018-07-06

Pros

Helps in easy project management without many technical skills.

Cons

It takes a lot of time to upload files. The platform is not suitable if you want to generate an analytical report. It enables the least personalization of your page. The calendar feature is absent.
