Overall Satisfaction

Our entire organization's communications and projects took place on Basecamp. We had over 50 interns that we managed through Basecamp, along with their projects. We liked to have a train of emails, and a record of everything, which is why all of our communications took place on Basecamp. All of our files of projects we were working on were kept in Basecamp, so if someone's computer crashed, there was always a record of their work.
  • You can organize everything by projects
  • You can give your workers access to certain projects, so they do not have to be overwhelmed with everything, just the things they need to pay attention to.
  • The calendar feature
  • I would like to see some sort of doc sharing feature, like GoogleDocs, so that people can work on a project at the same time and have it always be updated. I don't like the fact that I have to re upload something to the doc.
  • I wish there could be an instant messaging feature
  • I wish there could be a way that could could see comment history on the forwarded emails, so you can see what the comment is about, not just the topic of the post where the comment was coming from.
  • Better communication
  • Less emails to dig through
  • More productivity
Teamwork Live; Basecamp was simpler and easier to use and better to boot! It was hard to navigate Teamwork Live, and Basecamp was the complete opposite. I like how the dashboard is organized and allows me to see who has logged on to the platform recently to get an idea of who is using the platform the most.
I love Basecamp. If I was still with my previous organization, I would be using it everyday. If I had the opportunity to use Basecamp right now at my current organization I would. If we are ever looking for a project management software system, I would recommend Basecamp in a heartbeat.
I think it is well suited when there are a lot of people working on the same project virtually. You can get feedback through comments and always have a record of it and be able to add attachments in your comments.
