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

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

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

We used this product for two years but eventually switched to Google Docs which was included with our email suite and did not cost any extra amount. I think some companies would find value in this and do not think it is a bad solution. I loved that you can set tasks and mark off the list, share content and store documents. Great way to communicate with teams that work remotely.

The only real negative is that the higher end packages (which include some very useful functions) get VERY expensive, to the point where they are not practical for a lot of small businesses.

Review Source: Capterra

We use this for a couple of projects: a team is organizing a conference, we communicate with a client etc. - it has a lot of great functionalities - what I especially like about it, is that if someone doesn't sign up (I have some team members who are resistant to try new stuff) they can still participate over email. They will receive any post that is sent to them per email and can reply to it by email. This makes it easy to rope in people like that. It is better than email, in that the whole group is able to jump in on the conversation and you have a record of the whole conversation, not just bits and pieces. It has served us really well. Last but not least I like the design wich somewhat resembles paper (version 2) and I really like that, especially for new people added to projects it helps to onboard them faster. I wish there were some more integration with other services such as OmniVision or Evernote - but it works reliable and we love it.The design, very good integration with email (you can email files, todo lists, discussions etc. in - or react to them by email), very easy to use, comparatively cheap price for a well designed project management software
