    Basecamp

    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.

    Oracle Aconex

    For outstanding project managing and operational assistance, Oracle Aconex is an incredible program. The budget that suits every project are met and followed. More so, Oracle Aconex takes the permits required, for instance, the insurance permit and the license tracking. The contractor management feature is also encoded on Oracle Aconex, making the investor and the contractor have the same objective.
    Sanjoy Malik | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Basecamp

    • 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.

    • Time tracking functionality is amazing.
    • All the features are easy and active.
    • The Cloud services offered by Oracle Aconex is efficient.

    Cons

    Basecamp

    • 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.
    Heather Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Oracle Aconex

    • Interface needs work; graphically inelegant, somewhat non-intuitive.
    • Process controls could be better 'templated' for industry standards.
    • Dashboard/to do for project managers - it's still too hard to see who is slowing the project down.

    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.

    We're delighted with Oracle Aconex's functionality, UX, capabilities, and feature offerings. The only thing that keeps us from giving it a perfect 10/10 is the price. There are other options out there that won't burn as deep of a hole in your pocket, but then again, you get what you pay for.

    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

    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.
    Blake Baron | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Oracle Aconex

    Oracle Aconex seems to be tailored for our specific needs since it supports construction project information and all related type of data. It is secure and compliant which makes it crucial for real-time collaboration and control of job site processes. Other platforms that we have evaluated are still well designed, but much more generic which is not favourable for our engineering projects.

    Return on Investment

    Basecamp

    • 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.
    Elizabeth Hyman | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Oracle Aconex

    • Being able to communicate with a client for document submission.
    • Client communication for mail that is traceable.
    • Double handling of documents, as we have another internal document control program.
