Basecamp

Basecamp is very well-suited for organisations that need an end-to-end solution to manage simpler projects that do not comprise complex work breakdown structures. If you need a platform to help manage such engagements then Basecamp is ideal for you.If you're looking for a solution for very complex practice management then you may find challenges with Basecamp (it doesn't support a full agile/scrum model, for example). However if you want a platform that can be provisioned within minutes and can be deployed across an organisation at speed then Basecamp is definitely the answer!

Notion

If you are generating a lot of content and working in a team environment, Notion is a clutch way to make sure that every member of the team is working on the same draft or version of your document. If you are in a process chain, it also becomes quite useful being able to drag the content card from one person's to do list from another's when it becomes their responsibility.

Pros

Basecamp

  • I enjoy the calendar view. As long as you're always assigning deadline dates to the tasks, the looking at the calendar view can really help you determine your outlook for the day, the week, and quickly see any tasks past due that need to be addressed or moved.
  • It's easy to bring in outside people in on projects and give them access to that particular project to collaborate just on that.
  • Duplicating projects or task lists is a helpful feature when you have a recurring task list. It makes it easy to have the same process every time you want to execute the task list.

Notion

  • Notion is very easy to use and create content on. With other Wikis, you have to edit the page using widgets and never know what it will look like until you are done. With Notion you get to create in the same view that others will see when they view your page.
  • Notion is very clean and easy to read. There are a lot of different choices for how to format the content however you wold like.

Cons

Basecamp

  • Does not allow for information to be automatically ported over (via API or similar) to our user story tracking platform.
  • Doesn't provide an easy way to search for file or image attachments that were added in various discussion threads.
  • Unclear how or why some files are accessible via the Docs & Files tab, and some aren't.

Notion

  • Sometimes the data functions are difficult to get working.
  • Wish there was an option for folders to better organized.
  • Formatting does not work well when using copy/paste or exporting to another type of file or document.

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.

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.

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.

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)

Alternatives Considered

Basecamp

Both Basecamp and Asana are great project management tools. I think where Basecamp excels is with tracking. Teams can keep track of schedules and deadlines. You have deadlines with Asana but need 3rd-party applications to keep track of how work has been done in a particular project.

Notion

I have replaced Evernote use with Notion. Evernote became just a place to shuffle resources to essentially read later, however products like Pocket have replaced that as well. Inclusion of the database approach from Notion far exceeds what Evernote offered. Evernote was good at keeping notes, but good portion of notes in my workflow are temporary and easy delete or archive.

Return on Investment

Basecamp

  • We have far less meetings! Which is great. I think this has made us far more efficient, wasting time with meetings and getting more done.
  • We are able to keep track of notes and progress on a project much more easily. I feel like things stay on track much better than before we had Basecamp.
  • I think timelines and deadlines are kept very clear and everyone has clear expectations. This means people know exactly what they need to work on at any given time (and know what they will be working on next too). As bad as it sounds to say, I think before we had Basecamp, deadlines and timelines weren't very clear sometimes.

Notion

  • It reduces duplicative work as everyone is literally on the same page.
  • Allows multiple stages of the production to happen simultaneously without impeding the other, i.e. content editing and photo insertion can happen simultaneously once the draft is finished.
