As we've moved to using agile-based methodologies, we've started using JIRA more, which is better suited for agile development. JIRA looks and feels like a more modern web application and has greater flexibility and more features. I used Basecamp a long time ago for some small personal projects. As such, my experience isn't directly comparable, but as I recall it had fairly similar features.

Redmine is much for granular than Trello. The detail and record tracking in Redmine can't really be compared to that in Trello. While they can both track things and there is a record of changes... Redmine is more detailed and more geared toward long term projects where Trello is great for short terms notes and tasks.

Redmine has a lot of the same functionality but is much easier to use. The project tends to have functions that only the most advanced PM would even look at. JIRA is easier to deploy in a cloud/managed environment: it also has better "apps" support. However, Redmine benefits from maturity, as well as a large base of experts who manage Redmine on a constant basis. Additionally, Redmine is fairly "easy" to set up: as long as you have an appreciable background in Linux/Unix, you can deploy Redmine in a weekend (vanilla, no configurations).

Basecamp was very busy and seemed more into the "wow" factor than into being an efficient tool. Redmine has none of the characters or kid-like appearance of Basecamp's model. I found Basecamp to be too cluttered in views and its interactions confusing, making it difficult to find where centrally kept information was.
Redmine has a straightforward no-nonsense default UI, though you can change it how you like of course. The views were designed for simplicity and thinking of the least amount of steps to get to one goal instead of trying to make a pleasing color palette that was overstimulating. I think Basecamp is more geared towards the "chat" aspect whereas Redmine is good for the larger overview of a project.

JIRA is new: it is easier to deploy in a cloud/managed environment: it also has better "apps" support.

Also, REST API. Important feature! All new PM systems employ REST as a means of exchanging data with their engines. Redmine also does this. This feature alone is extremely helpful.

Redmine stacks up to its competitors by being free and open-source. Additionally, it is an easy tool to install and maintain in any operating system, like Linux and Windows. Administrators will not have so many headaches when getting it running. You can customize the code and the interface in order to get better usability and/or to adapt it to your company's visual identity.

JIRA is currently the gold standard here, but it has a pretty substantial subscription price based on the number of accounts you need to create. JIRA gets pricey, very quickly.

Gitlab has built-in issue and documentation management, however it's still primitive in its current iteration. Gitlab recently received $100M in funding with which they are planning on extensively updating these tools and targeting JIRA directly. Definitely a product worth keeping an eye on.

In the end, deploying Redmine was a low-cost, simple entry into the project management arena and allowed us to focus on the products we wanted to build, versus spending a lot of time and money on an application to support our focus.

I think that although they are tools for managing equipment and tools for bugs tracking, Redmine has a great advantage since it can be integrated with many third-party tools and that is the only tool of this type with which I have been able to integrate and integrate systems. I'll keep going. You can also download their modules and customize them, this is a plus of Redmine because you can customize it according to your company.
