Overall Satisfaction with Basecamp

We use Basecamp to manage a marketing campaign that we coordinate within our company and with an external agency. We use it as a project management tool to keep all the notes, ideas, and plans in one central location. It helps us keep the information within a project so it is easy to go back through the notes, documents, and comments. We keep it based on a topic or a project and it makes it so much easier to coordinate and stay up to date on a project.
  • Centralize data
  • Keep a project organized
  • Working as a group
  • Assigning a project
  • Checklists
  • Pending tasks
  • We have been able to coordinate our marketing campaigns much easier with an external agency.
  • Our team has been much more responsive that just using email communication.
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 seemed to get too messy and Basecamp keeps it nicely organized.

Basecamp works great as a project management tool to coordinate within a group of people. It works great especially between multiple companies or companies where the workers are not in close proximity. As remote workers, it has really helped keep our conversations and messages focused and centralized for easy access and review.
