Fantastic. Great tool for organizing groups or departments.

2018-07-27

Collaboration and increased work flow.

Pros

Ease of use. Simply could not be easier to create project teams and to keep staff within a dept. aware of what each other is working on. Adding more to someone's full work load is easy to do. Base camp helps clear the clutter and spread the load.

Cons

Certain functions can seem chunky at times. But most are things that are rarely used. Or perhaps we rarely use them because they are chunky.

There are easier ways to get things done

2018-09-13

When used in the past it was difficult to view comments/interaction beyond a few entries old.

Pros

Seems pretty easy to get started. Once started it left something to be desired.

Cons

The interface was really confusing and lacked a logical flow

Pros

Fairly easy to use, good pricing, the option of free version, good support

Not going with the flow, so many changes for the past year.

It has been a great experience

2018-03-28

Organization and work flow has been greatly improved.

Pros

The easy communication, and the ability to monitor everyone's responsibilities. Seeing the comments, names of contributors, and dates with each item.

Cons

I would like to see better organization on the overview page, to be able to not only organize by latest lists, comments, etc. but also by total comments, who has responded or is responsible. It would also be nice to have the search function provide suggestions and related content, in case the title or info isn't searched for verbatim.

Project management platform for 2+ years

2018-05-14

organization of thoughts, flow of workspaces, and tons more!

Pros

How easy/streamlined it is to use and to see what all is coming up. I also love how you can communicate btwn those on your team, in both pings and thread conversations. It is super easy to keep track of projects that are coming up, and as far as start-up/launch goes, it is one of the easiest I've used to get moving with.

Cons

It *can* be slightly tedious to get into docs/files in each section rather in a full doc/files section, but that's just my 'preference'. Literally anything else is super user friendly and ready to go!

A great tool with simple UI

2018-04-05

The project flow become more fluid and communication between teams improved

Pros

Basecamp UI is the hero in the game. It is really easy to use even for the first time. The software is not stuffed with 10s of flashy features. But it has everything it needed

Cons

The pricing, even it is reasonable, a little costlier for small ventures. It will be better if there is feature limited free version for small teams

Basecamp is hands down one of the best project management software's available to modern day geeks e

2018-07-12

Streamlined work flows , easy of project execution, better communication and real-time feedback.

Pros

For its complexity and rich features that it offers, Basecamp is also incredibly intuitive and easy to utilize

Cons

For a newbie in the game, using Basecamp for the first time might be a little intimidating - but there's the help section that is extremely valuable

Submitted project request to collaborate on a project within a large organization.

2018-03-29

One projectI had needed to be presented to a graphics team to not only build the graphic but additionally be able to place it on a bag. Submitting the request was streamlined and very easy to use and the communication for clarification allowed for a quick turn around time to get my project in my hand and out to those who needed it to move the mission forward.

Pros

Basecamp is a smooth process allowing you to easily flow through all sections and reply to those that apply to your specific project.

Cons

Although each PM or individual has a work flow, it is difficult to gauge the overall work flow for the team.

Great for keeping teams and clients on the same page

Pros

Integration with a bunch of other platforms and services like Zapier, Harvest and Tick. Easy to onboard new clients quickly, and they find it easy to use as well.

Cons

Could use some improvements to user experience and flow. Feature set is a bit limited compared to competitors.

Not the best project management software on the market

2018-05-03

Pros

I liked the fact that most of our clients used Basecamp, so it was easy to get them to adopt using it for projects.

Cons

I thought the user experience was a little upside down and didn't flow right for our company.

Basecamp is a great platform for team work. Simple and organized.

2018-06-12

Great project organizations and team member connections.

Pros

It is very clear, easy to use and organized. All projects can be filed with connections to all team members.

Cons

The flow of the project depended alot on the team members being very present on basecamp at all times.

Prefer projects by MS

2019-03-19

Gets the job done although I would use something else if I had the option.

Pros

Easy to use and seems to have a good flow, but somehow that gets lost.

Cons

Not as feature rich as I would expect given that its pm software. MS definitely has them beat.

I used Basecamp for a class.

2018-07-11

It really helped the flow of my work team and it made it more comfortable to work together.

Pros

I love the ease in which you can join the groups together. It was very easy to interact with each other and determine what needed to get done from each person.

Cons

There are some features that were over the top and got in the way, this was mostly stuff that I would probably use if I was more advanced with the program.

Can make a cluttered work flow smooth through easy compartmentalization.

2018-06-21

Remote workers and in house staff are kept on the same page without interrupting their personal pace and work flow.

Pros

The intuitive nature and the ease to do a lot with a few clicks. It's as close to a whiteboard as far as ease of use is, but provides the detail needed to really work well with a group of people.

Cons

It takes a bit to get all the settings and permissions dialed in where they need to be. Still miles better than most CRM type systems.

Clean, Efficient & Essential

2017-01-25

Flow allows you to choose how you want to manage projects without overloading you with half-useful features, unnecessary graphics or "clever" copy throughout (lookin' at you Basecamp). Software with "personality" wastes time, we just want to get our work done.

Pros

It's clean, simple to understand, customizable for your needs and they consistently make smart improvements without changing the focus of the product.

Cons

I'd like the ability to view recent attachments and links which have been posted all in one place. Like a "is this what you were looking for?" kind of feature.
