A little bit simple, but nice

2018-04-02

Pros

Haven't used it for long, but what I've seen is that the design is nice, features have anything a small company needs and pricing plans are reasonable

Cons

I wish there were more different charts that track the progress and build reports afterwards to give you a better insight in how a team operates

Basecamp has everything you need for team collaboration

2018-10-03

We needed something to give us insight into the current status of our software builds and Basecamp is it.

Pros

Easy to setup and configure. Quickly communicate about software development projects across the team. Great UI and easy-to-use features. Exponentially increased visibility into the current status of a software build across our team.

Cons

There's a bit of a learning curve, but once you've figured out what's where, there's really no issues.

Aligning a team around a project with multiple assets and contrubutors

2018-07-10

A great tool for a project manager, eases the sharing of assets and insight into where the project is.

Pros

Collaboration is easy and the comments/posts are visible for all parties needing to stay informed. Size of storage is great for sharing assets and uploading files.

Cons

The house cleaning required for ended or completed projects. Unless there is an appointed clean up point person, old projects, idle projects clog up the works.

Functional Project Manager

2018-03-09

Pros

Simplified communication and gives great insight to the overall look and progress of each project.

Cons

Ongoing tasks and day to day operations are hard to fit into teams or projects. Takes some getting used to and need all stakeholders to have buy in for it to work well.

Simple project management

2019-02-01

If you're looking for a straightforward, easy-to-use project management platform and don't require all the frills--or tools for gaining deeper insight--it may be the perfect tool for you.

Pros

Basecamp is very user friendly and easy to navigate. The functionality is very straightforward, enabling new users to begin use of the platform immediately.

Cons

There are some definite limitations to the platform, specifically there isn't the ability to sort or filter projects by specific variables, like category, required effort, or time investment. Additionally, there are no reporting capabilities.

Basecamp is a Powerful Tool for Streamlining Project & Team Management

2018-10-29

Basecamp was a quick and easy way for us to gain more control and insight into the various software development and marketing projects that we were working on.

Pros

Basecamp is a great tool to help organize and manage teams and projects to increase efficiency and control time/costs. It can be used across all departments to manage teams for software development, marketing campaigns, operations, etc... It gives managers the ability to quickly and easily assign tasks to different team members and allows users to easily track the progress of a project from start to finish and identify any inefficiencies and/or bottlenecks in the process.

Cons

It would be more useful if there was the ability to more easily create and assign sub-tasks. It's also difficult to manage shared tasks where more than 1 person is working on the same item.

Incredibly Helpful for Bigger Teams

2018-08-31

Pros

First off, there is a lot to Basecamp that improves the efficiency of your office. Namely, the ability of group members to actually identify when other individuals' assignments are due holds all group members to a higher standard and encourages them to turn things in on time. As well, the tracking for assignments can be incredibly in-depth. Managers and group members can be updated immediately when each individual completes a certain step.

Cons

That said, it can be easy for the emails to become exhausting, especially on a smaller team where a three-minute conversation could do the trick and could provide much more insight into what the individual learned/thinks.

Lots of cool features, but probably not best-suited for a small in-office team (2-3 people)

2018-02-08

Increased productivity and communication. See my review for more details.

Pros

If I want to know what we were thinking with a project, or remind myself what frame of mind I need to be in, I can go to the project's page and see activity we've done and read the message board for insight. At first, I thought this would be better for teams of 5 or more, to be honest.

Cons

I do wish there was a way to list all tiles as full-width and expandable (accordion style) so we could have everything on one page instead of having to click in and out of everything.
