AceProject

It is well suited if you have a specific work force or are working in a production or an assembly line style environment. It is also well suited if you have small teams that have to get out a certain amount of product in set periods of time. AceProjects is great for monitoring how long each individual spent on their specific task and subsequently how long the team took to complete their work.

Basecamp

We used this at a creative digital agency. There were many clients, and Basecamp was very reliable and effective at keeping everything organized and clear. Each project dashboard makes it easy to see upcoming deadlines, checking or submitting recent progress updates, and keeping detailed to-do lists. You also have message board and chat features making communication an important feature that is optimized even for remote employees.

Pros

AceProject

  • Time Tracking
  • Resource allocation
  • Easy to implement, small adoption curve.
Kyle Culpepper | TrustRadius Reviewer

Basecamp

  • Allows for the creation of groups of To Do's under one project.
  • The Activity Feed allows for a great overview of what's happening to be able to quickly see where things are
  • Anyone can create a to do and assign it to anyone, so people are empowered to take ownership over projects.
  • Is pretty easy and straightforward to get started and creating To Do's and Projects

Cons

AceProject

  • Expand on data tracking
  • Improve report generation
  • Break out from just being a time clock manager.
Kyle Culpepper | TrustRadius Reviewer

Basecamp

  • What I don't like about Basecamp is that it feels like you are using an old product. All the other productivity tools I use have a slick modern interface. Basecamp just feels outdated in that regard. The user interface hasn't been updated in years and you can really notice it.

It's a good tool, very user-friendly and very affordable, but there are just better systems out there that allow more customization and reporting to get you what you need. This could still be a great tool for some organizations if their needs are fairly simple and the budget is more of the main challenge.

I've never experienced downtime while using Basecamp, or been unable to access it when I needed it. That's not to say they've never had downtime, but I've been lucky enough not to encounter any, and I work odd hours, including late nights when maintenance is often undertaken.

We have never called or emailed a representative in customer support. While signing up in Base camp, I did review the training materials available to all new users. It was helpful in navigating through the tool. I also used the online help when I was not able to find information.

Decide the process before implementation - i.e. when it's due 8/9 does that mean 8am, noon, 5pm, 11:59pm? Check your to-do list frequentlySet-up templates - just not with the dates (they can be funky)

Basecamp

I've used Evernote in similarly collaborative projects, but it always comes up short in collaborating in more creative and innovate ways. For example, Basecamp provides access to more robust things (like Gantt charts) and more advanced project management tools, but Evernote didn't have anything of the sort. Simply to-do lists, that could be assigned. But you're never notified when changes are made like you are with Basecamp

Return on Investment

AceProject

  • We were able to track our production teams work and refine our methods to improve deliverable dates.
  • Once our staff reached a certain size the capability of the software began to lag. Diminishing returns.
  • The lack of reporting features made data regression and extrapolation difficult.
Kyle Culpepper | TrustRadius Reviewer

Basecamp

  • Basecamp has allowed us to work better with third party vendors or suppliers on projects by providing more transparency and in return have seen quicker response times when tasks are relying on one team or the other.
  • The costs are low but they do not outweigh the benefit to use Basecamp as an internal system for project management.
  • The time saved on avoiding wasted meetings for simple updates has been more than beneficial on a time management perspective.
