Review Source: Capterra

Decent tool and does exactly what it describes to do. Its very low priced and cheap compared to other tools.

Pros
Basecamp is an easy-to-use Project Management system to create bords and to keep track of your ongoing projects. We previously used Basecamp to track the progress of our custom work next to our subscriptions. It's easy to set up, and therefore a good tool to use if you don't have a lot of different projects running.

Cons
When we were growing as a company, we were having limitations with the functionality of Basecamp. We wanted it to "talk" with our other tools like CRM etc through API connections. This wasn't possible at that time so we decided to move to the next step and get a more high end Project Management tool.

Good value for cost. Our entire team used it, and it's an easy product to understand and use.

Pros
Cheap and functional. For the money and the relative cheap cost, I would definitely recommend the product.

Cons
sometimes have glitch issues. I wasn't sure if it was internet connection or what at first, but I think the app was to blame for 10% of the problem and internet connectivity was by and large the issue.

Simple yet very powerful and easy to use unlike other project management app where you need to give time to learn.

Pros
I like how each project and its tools are organized. It is very simple and easy to use. I like the Basecamp HQ with the automatic check-ins, where you can ask daily questions to people in the organizations and keep everyone updated whether is a personal question like "how did you weekend go?" or "what progress have you done for the week or day?".

Cons
The pricing option is quite expensive for a small team but the good side to this is once you scale up, the pricing is fixed so it becomes cheaper for bigger teams.

Ease of use, and easier collaboration with the team saves us a lot of time and maximizes everyone's efficiency.

Pros
I've been using Basecamp for about 6 years now, and I love it. It's clean, it's minimalistic, and it's very easy to use, even for people who are not so tech-savvy. Everything you need for project management is in there, such as separate boxes for chat (campfire), documents and files, assignments, etc. This makes everything super organized and and super easy to look for things when you need them. I also love that it's really fuss-free, and clean. Easy on the eyes, and you don't see a lot of things you don't really need on there. It's very straightforward.

Cons
The only thing that I don't like is that it's not really in the affordable category, but you do get your money's worth. I just wish they had a cheaper option . They used to have a pricing tier versus a one set price now.

Keeping an overview of everything that needs to be done for our clients in a very pleasant GUI.

Pros
Basecamp is very easy to use. The features are sufficient enough for basic project management, like registering todo's and keeping everybody in the loop easily. The GUI is nice. No clutter. No special effects. It does what it needs to do very well. Basecamp recently added support for grouping todo's inside a todo-list, which is great to keep a clear overview of sub-tasks.

Cons
Basecamp has been switching its pricing model a few times. We are still on the previous plan but the current all-in-inclusive plan is quite expensive if you ask me, especially since the 'client-side' isn't creating that much extra value. Don't know if we would go for Basecamp at that price, since their are cheaper alternatives.

You get basic project management for a good price, and it can easy sync with your email, where you can work out of, instead of on the online platform.

Pros
It's cheap and a great first PMS for small businesses, but moving to something more intuitive will come about later.

Cons
it's not intuitive, too many levels of detail, hard to move around in system. It's very childish looking to, not very professional in the "feel".

The main benefit is communication, everyone knew what was needed to be done and whose job it was to do it.

Pros
I loved the layout and the overall user experience of basecamp, it seemed they put a lot of time into making sure that the software is as easy to use as possible. The seamless integration on multiple device including mobile. It allows everyone on the team to be way more self-sufficient and there is way less meetings to worry about. The logo is great!

Cons
The pricing would be the top of my list, since there is alternatives that do same thing, for a much cheaper price. Everything else was great!
