JIRA is a project management tool for IT developers built on the Agile principle, while Trello is built on a board style methodology. monday is a grid style project management tool that works great for visual project management. Basecamp on the other hand is all about team …
Chose Basecamp
Basecamp is probably towards the bottom of the totem pole here based on what our needs were. Trello lacks reporting as well, but there's much more customization with Trello. Asana has more reporting and integration capabilities. monday.com is my favorite so far. The amount of …
Chose Basecamp
We moved from Basecamp to monday.com. Monday is much better suited to an environment where most projects are similar to other projects you are currently working on or have already completed. Monday isn't as "social" or as "community building" as Basecamp, but we've always used S…
Chose Basecamp
We found that Basecamp worked better for our needs than these competitors. ML is a bit slow for our purposes, and it doesn't handle images/video in as nice of a way. InVision could potentially work alright for our needs but would require too many different screenshots being …
Chose Basecamp
Basecamp is the best application we've found for our team to interface with external clients. It makes project management simple, and allows our clients visibility into their projects, which in turn builds trust, fosters open communication, and improves customer satisfaction. …
Chose Basecamp
Basecamp is a feature-rich and user-friendly platform that outpaces other solutions we've explored. The vast number of integrations available, as well as the years of dedicated developers as well as the natively available mobile apps, really make Basecamp a leader in this …
Chose Basecamp
Trello is less expensive and the free version works pretty well. For the paid version, Trello is also a really great tool. Overall, I do like Basecamp better. It's a more simple layout and structure to the software. I like the communication threads better on Basecamp. Trello
Chose Basecamp
[Basecamp is] simpler to use less ramp-up. It's cheaper per user and allows for a better mobile experience.
Chose Basecamp
There is a simplicity that basecamp offers where most other project management systems seem to miss. They've worked hard at keeping the right things in place and not adding so many of the extra features that just get in the way of getting work done. The thing I liked most …
Chose Basecamp
We selected Basecamp for the low cost of entry for the org and the number of users who had previous experience on Basecamp. We ultimately will be transitioning to another project management tool that includes relational decision capability and Gantt chart capacity.
Chose Basecamp
Comparatively, Basecamp has been found to be the easiest to use and onboard new users. Additionally the cost model for our organisation is much lower on Basecamp compared to the competition.

Other products are more aligned with Agile practices but for most of our operational …
Chose Basecamp
Basecamp seemed to be more user-friendly compared to the others I've previously used. It is really easy to use and doesn't require intensive training for its users.
Chose Basecamp
Basecamp is a similar type of software but is on a totally different playing field than Monday. Basecamp is definitely a lot more bare bones, it is a task tracking software and that is all. Basecamp is more of a "To Do" list where as Monday is a full-on task scheduling, time …
Chose Basecamp
Haven't tried any other software or platform other than Basecamp, but before the purchase process we reviewed other products and they seem very similar and the decision that got us to buy Basecamp was because of the price and the understanding of the web page related to the …

Part of our organization is still using Basecamp. I am leading my team with Dapulse, because its visual platform and capacity to measure progress across the boards helps me lead our team better. Basecamp has great features, but Dapulse is helping me visualize. As a creative …
Chose monday.com
With both Asana and Basecamp, unless you are the organizer, it is very hard to control how much information you are receiving. That is one reason we chose dapulse because each specific user has more control over how involved they want to be. Asana and Basecamp are also both set …
Chose monday.com
I've used Basecamp, Central Desktop & SharePoint in the past. And they're fine. But this had a nicer user-interface and a free trial period to let me use it and determine if it could be useable by the team.
Chose monday.com
Basecamp has some very nice project management features but Monday.com really focuses on task management and keeping teams accountable/organized. We fell in love with the visual task boards that Monday.com offers and that's why we chose to go with it. We also really enjoyed …
Chose monday.com
Jira can be complicated to setup, but offers the most versatility. Basecamp is simple to use; however, doesn't provide everything a team or many teams may need. Monday fits in the middle and is easy to use and versatile.
Chose monday.com
The best aspect of monday.com in my opinion is the Visual Based Data Representation(s)
Chose monday.com
Although monday.com costs more than the other services, it can handle more as a platform. The functions, features, integrations, and automations allow you to do so much more than, than just keeping track of project & task deadlines.
Chose monday.com
Monday is much easier to use and learn. So far everyone has figured it out just by using it or after watching a brief training video. Most other tools have parts that we wouldn't use or be just too complicated for the average user. We feel with Mondayulse we are not struggling …
Chose monday.com
Monday.com is definitely a good platform—it has the things you need if someone is looking for a project management software, but we found Airtable and Google Sheets as fine alternatives to what we wanted at a lower price. Teamwork was also good and they had a free version for …
Chose monday.com
We have tried many other project management programs. In the end, we were able to customize Monday more easily to fit our team's needs and handle more things in Monday than the others. It's nice to have everything in one place (campaign planning, team task lists, upcoming …
Chose monday.com
Monday.com has been the first task management/project management tool we have assessed that met every need our digital agency requires. And to top it all off, we've had an amazing time with the customer support team, who have been helpful and timely in their assistance. We …
Chose monday.com
We selected monday for the user interface. The idea we had in mind for how we wanted to set up updates and workflows just aligned perfectly well with that monday offered. we had to create accounts for everyone but once the setup/homework was complete the workflows fell into …
Chose monday.com
Monday.com is overall a better program that is much more visually appealing. It's easy to use as well and couldn't see using another program at this point.
Chose monday.com
dapulse is much more organised in terms of the platform functionality and general layout. It's easier to use and easier to use as a group tool and central hub for our team.
Chose monday.com
Dapulse is great for team checklists and assigning tasks. It is a great way to see everything in one spot. I like that I don't have to sign out and into another system to see other projects. It gives me a good look at what needs to be done and by whom.

Basecamp is a wonderful tool for teams of varying degrees of technical knowledge, teams managing lots of different types of "agifall" and waterfall projects, and teams that are remotely distributed. It's probably less useful for more strictly agile-focused development teams, compared to other more flexible software applications like Jira and Asana.

Here, I will suggest that it is best to create employees, clients, or project reports. Easy to track with the dashboards. I did many integrations and developments. I can not list each of them here. I will say the best tool for management. I couldn't see criteria of unsuitable. But yes It will depend on the client's requirements. I will suggest it as very user-friendly tool for CEOs, CTOs, Managers, and company owners also for team.

Pros

  • Task management - It is very easy to add, organize and discuss tasks within Basecamp's interface.
  • The "Campfire" function is great for communicating when you just have a quick question for someone on the team.
  • Notifications - Basecamp lets you decide how often and about what you'd like to be notified. The ability to respond to messages in Basecamp directly via email saves a lot of time.

  • Set stages for each task and assign people to those stages to move projects along
  • Set up automated tasks to get assigned to people and to send out notifications to Slack as well as emails to contractors to work on a project
  • Create multiple boards for projects and the ability to review tasks by date to make sure no project slips through the cracks

Cons
37 Signals
  • High Learning Curve. It's true that it can be easy to use, but to use well and effectively takes some time to learn. It's recommended to have an agreed-upon system in your team of what tools to use and when.
  • Notification Overload. If people aren't careful they could send a notification to everyone when only a couple people were meant to be prompted. And since emails are sent by default, you could have your mailbox overloaded with unnecessary updates. This is where it takes a bit of training in your team to have an agreed-upon system.
  • Lack of organization with Archived Projects. I will often need to reference an archived project to make a new one, but there is only a list of archived projects in alphabetical order, with no way to organize by archive date, or even search.

  • Ensuring I have set up a Private board vs public board is not clear - it would be useful to have an additional alert when creating a board as I work with sensitive information. It will eventually be used in a team based environment but while I test the boards, they needs to be private.
  • Time tracking is clumsy, could be easier to record

When I bring new people onto a project, it's immediately obvious how to use Basecamp. I don't have to worry about teaching them the features or walking them through it, it's just incredibly user-friendly. For this reason, I'll continue to renew my subscription even as new people are brought onto production jobs or the client changes.

Basecamp is a little tricky to learn. I've used it for quite a while but I feel like there's still so much I don't know. It took me a while to learn but having used it in college definitely helped me integrate it into my work career.

It's straightforward to use and simple to understand. They have tutorials on different elements of the system that you can learn. The workflow there is very intuitive, drag and drop, which doesn't require a learning curve for most people. Templates that also make things more accessible can be found.

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.

Everything performs fairly well. Every now and then there are user errors where an employee will not click "ok" on a note they've created and simply exit out (I do wish that something was in place to prevent this, such as a pop "are you finished?")

For the many reasons I've given, Basecamp is a very strong program. There are a few features I can imagine that might make it even better, but I don't have a basis for comparison to be able to say that there is definitely a better one out there. I've noticed that Basecamp has evolved a bit from the time I started using it until now, so that makes me think that the producer of this program values it and believes in continuous improvement. If you could use the features offered by Basecamp, I would think you could use it with confidence.

monday.com only really care about accounts that have 20 seats or more. While this is great for monday.com, it pushes smaller organisations to evaluate alternatives. We rate monday.com highly in our organisation because key staff have already got good experience with the application and we know we will get to 20+ seats one day. But, till then the billing model and lack of permanent enterprise features is a dread.

To have someone walk you thru the features and capabilities of Monday.com is priceless. Someone also coming along later in the contract to see if you are maximizing the program to suit your company needs is beyond helpful. The staff that have provided this training are fun, creative and very patient.

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 frequently Set-up templates - just not with the dates (they can be funky)

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

Pretty good, but [Basecamp] has its drawbacks. Honestly I find the interface non-intuitive and sometimes have trouble figuring out how to change the status of a task. Perhaps it has something to do with the way it was originally set up by the admin, but I'm not sure. I liked Jira's drag and drop obvious functionality, but the project management side of the software was lacking. Smartsheet has excellent project management functionality, but the task management isn't as good.

We have converted using spreadsheets over to Monday and so far everything is going well. Things are more organized and you don't have to worry about bookmarking a bunch of Excel pages. Everything is in one place and easy to access for the whole team.

For it to work across multiple departments and sites, I would like to see improvements made with integrations and automation. For this question, I am acknowledging not only the addition of internal triggers/automation, but also an expansion on external ones.

Return on Investment
37 Signals
  • It has saved me time when having to get the same message out to multiple restaurants
  • It has helped us make smarter operational decisions because we can all collaborate on an answer in a shorter amount of time (instead of calling a meeting!!!)
  • The calendar function allows us to plot out our marketing agenda for the month and add/change it together as needed. The chef will post his recipe, the managers will cost it out, the social media manager will post pictures on it, and ultimately we will get that information out on an info sheet to the staff by printing the page.
