Excellent variety of communications in projects

// HR Generalist at 777 Bets

What do you like about Basecamp?

At first, Basecamp's user interface is attractive and simple, allowing anyone with basic computer skills the ability to successfully use this tool. I like managing reports for various users so I can quickly see what is on my plate and the plates of others. Also, monitoring of activity in several ways: by a person, by date, or by project segment. Basecamp is being used across the whole organization currently.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

The problem with Basecamp is when saving each of the projects since it is somewhat complicated because many times the project is not saved successfully and this leads to a considerable loss of information integrated into the content of the project, I would like the saved be successful instantaneously.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Basecamp solve?

Essentially, we were launching an expansive, complicated process to revamp our website, our interaction with website users, and need to track all the various pieces.

Basecamp offers a lot of possibilities to keep a project up to date

// Senior Project Manager at Timeslide Inc

What do you like about Basecamp?

What's good with Basecamp is the dynamic web interface and simplicity it offers and how that can be used to involve colleagues with no previous experience and get them on track without further hassle. Also it has easy to use interface with possibility to work cross-functionally in the organization by assigning tasks between departments. It is good to see all information in one place. Basecamp is a useful collaborative tool for teams, which organizes projects easily and efficiently. I would recommend this tool.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

The file management is not great, hard to use as a primary calendar because it doesn't sink with anything, not sharable with public and doesn't have the end time. And I think if they added a customer section to Basecamp, it would be much better.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Basecamp solve?

The employees of my company can work together to manage the projects of the company and in this way we recover the control and the order of them. We can also have internal discussions that are private from the client in the project.
