What do you like best?

It is a schedule, workshops and file sharing, an event report and Campfire's own chat room perfect for real time contact and collaboration. It's ideal for teams that want to collaborate in the same room on ventures. It is really convenient for the staff to receive reports and to connect the necessary documentation. Moreover, it is suitable for reviewing project requirements and procedures. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't want to mask the fact that you and one other will cover from all the things on your project or schedule. It may be more convenient. It took me a few weeks to grasp it completely and to make the best of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you do not have a training program available in your business, please review or read a tutorial. It's not impossible, but not as quick as expected. This is a genuinely excellent management solution, as long as everyone inside the company is educated and uses the software effectively to maximize use of Basecamp's full capacity and increase its employees' productivity. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By the beginning of Covid, there have been so many improvements and updates that monitoring both communications and what has happened with each project was challenging. Basecamp made it convenient to access and consult all changes and practices in all programs for all staff. It has also strengthened the company's internal connectivity and the morale of all its workers. It has proved to be one of our strongest project management platforms.

What do you like best?

It is really quick to use the user interface. You can talk or even introduce a customer inside your business. The persons you would like to meet should be contacted and updated. The people you wish to speak to may be marked in detail. In case the information is complete, you can even delegate verification and tasks. Its operation is firm in terms of legislation regulating the pattern management. Account tracking systems' proactivity in real time is a major shift in management Sector relations prepared to customer loyalty Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not love it and you will see that if someone else saw that note, I want to update it. It's cool if you can make those video calls too. The strategies for remote establishment on the Basecamp registry include flawed imei and url architecture coordinated with simplification of direct access, which disproportionately adapt traceable documentation, under which a flexible software field can not be recognised for the project development templates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

People with the Basecamp can communicate to their team comfortably on a single board. You will individualize your instructions, order the order on a simpler scale, and extend the technical contact schedule. Product distribution in short periods, so attempts to optimize its availability are increasingly respected in electronic commerce. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basecamp accepts clustered data display formats so that its framework is embedded into my company's output axis, where its application is enabled effectiveness in accordance with project structure assurances, job support maintenance, differential coordination on multiple programmatic consistency periods, and individual smart area codes alerts. Presumably the main challenge Basecamp tackled for us was coordination and cooperation. It also helped us progress and develop previous initiatives. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The interactive excellence of this programme is the creation of contact templates, digital asset management, client connections routing exposures, organisation's maps are generated by the inclusion of files and the documents supported. The use of this method is interesting because clients and staff in particular will send each other messages with various systems and are able to deactivate any alerts that might be drawn explicitly at times with their customers without exiting the device. It is also important to note that each project has its own screen containing all work materials. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The capacity for educational storage is diminished in registering a student portfolio, such that much contact between teams in a single position does not favor recording and controlling all current activities in the sectional divisions. At several times this software starts sacrificing fractions of the progress of automated network continuity which leads to great loss of time when it comes to secure browsing activities that can be easily fixed to minimize the amount of data wasted and fix mass sending. emails of reply processed by my company assume superior synchronization positions on viable means of transmission of information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It allows visualizing a comprehensive list, message board and chat functions simpler to connect various documents to Excel workers via email and exchange user fulfilling working experiences. Its activity in network is kept separate from user needs, with knowledge transfer preparation changes governed by this format, frequent schemes added to restoration of bad sectors under a smart agility gui, with the use of configurable data like chat bases handled, digital trading forums activation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

He has been able to provide you with a wide variety of numerical records in services and work lists remote in relevant documentation by mapping data in educational departments. Although it was also very helpful in the business system because it administers emails in Excel, which concentrate your job on a broad variety of fields linked to a wide variety of documents, in order to remain associated and exchange work knowledge from a dashboard tailored to your needs. It has intuitive categorisation options, multiple system accesses, secure data leak tracking, quick online searching, automatic messaging, and real-time updates to the groupings of the stored ventures.

What do you like best?

A tool which has functions in one location, such as message boards, schedules, to-do lists and group chat, allows you to find the choices you already want to use while you work in the application. Keep it coordinated and optimized in one location, to be able to function with peace of mind. It helps us to organise our working groups and assign responsibilities properly among our business members, and at the same time we loved how it encourages the teams to advance without necessarily meeting, hosting documents in the same environment. Basecamp is used for handling all our company projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It would be a little easier to locate feedback and assignments if I had to maintain any search criteria within to-do projects. I don't like the expenses that the preparation needs to give businesses because they are very pricey and because of very high premiums and unaccessible pricing not every company can afford because the time is very long and not able to use it long. I would like them to adjust the plans they sell, which is not helpful in buying such plans. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a perfect way to understand and practice all inside Bascamp. I recommend it to every company, which needs to have a seamless and structured contact, and Basecamp is one of the best choices. The platform is very optimistic and has a very effective customer service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped us overcome all of our relationship issues and helped us keep track of how our tasks went. This allowed us to accomplish the activities in the period that we expected to accelerate the turnaround time and achieve the organization's objectives. I use it to monitor the project and its participants, so it allows me the power to properly organize the job, check unfinished activities, exchange files, and manage schedule to improve actual projects. Productivity and increased contact with our business project participants. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is quick to use the gui. I felt relaxed searching when I first used the tool. It is great to watch tasks and stay in touch with team members. It is also a perfect platform for keeping team members responsible and making progress notes. It proved to be an incredibly helpful method that helps us to separate tasks into highly handy sections of the team and to correctly assign roles. Ensure there is a shared location with all records, details and schedules. We may also connect buyers to base camp ventures to see what we are doing actively. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would really like Basecamp to include all assignments and to-do lists with a search option. I assume this makes locating a certain statement or task simpler. I would also like to enhance the template's design more so that templates for to-do lists can be generated and imported into a particular project rather than create a new project. In comparison, we have no issues, but it's a very pricey program. Any third party providers have adapted to the platform slowly but for Basecamp, this was not a complicated matter, rather an issue with bandwidth. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I will suggest Basecamp to encourage contact between team members and knowledge exchange in the whole company. I would not delay. For the whole organization, this is a good project management tool. It is important to understand how Basecamp is best used for your company and how it can be applied from scratch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many of our connectivity issues have been answered by Basecamp. It's awesome that relevant messages can be kept inside the to-do lists on the message board as well as improvements / notifications. This makes it very convenient for agencies and teams to connect. Moreover, it is a wonderful instrument to ensure that we keep on schedule and work is finished on time. It is actually fantastic to have apps to store all knowledge on the same platform, and finding and retrieving what you need is very straightforward. It also alerts all team members on the initiatives in which we work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I find that the way the tasks are organized by project and you can assign an individual as responsible for that task and a due date for completion. Overall, the layout of the platform works for our team Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that you can't see what tasks you've assigned out to other people in one streamlined view, this would be a really helpful tool from a project manager's standpoint. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Basecamp is a strong project management tool. I wish they made some additional upgrades and added some features to help ease some of the problems I am having as a project manager. But all in all, the software is really effective for our team, as a marketing agency. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basecamp helps us to keep track of all project status and we can have conversations about various tasks to ensure we are communicating throughout the project and asking any questions that are relevant to the task. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

For novice users, it is easy to use and very intuitive. This is a strong networking platform for 30 or less people. I am most grateful to Basecamp for the opportunity to incorporate new components, create a team and serve consumers on their own. You don't have to find a lot of serious words to make sense of that. It is easy for other people to distinguish and delegate responsibilities, to educate and responsible people. You can clearly see who is in action and who is falling/not bearing the load. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While every system has its own inconveniences and advantages, I do not see any big inconveniences, besides not being in a position to tackle ticket activities rather than ventures. It can take a little time to think about it so that you can benefit from all the advantages it has. I want my ventures to have an intuitive dashboard. It is a nightmare to chat about the project concurrently and upload many attachments to more than 30 users. Classifying or handling discussions isn't straightforward, it feels more like running an open forum. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If what you need is a mechanism that enables contact at any given time and you would not need to conduct a retrospective study of that communication at a later date, it is a very good choice. If you plan to get a huge amount of people working on a particular project, you might try something else; it's just not that well structured to handle from an admin position. Basecamp has been a huge support to my contact unit. Basecamp is a perfect way to organise your staff, share projects and handle activities with your team. They are used to plan organizational tasks and share knowledge with peers about job improvement. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helps our organization to connect with team members and handle their cooperation. It is bright. It is light. I want to reiterate that the dilemma we address is that we are working strictly with small communities that know that we can not necessarily use anything to file/store specifications or look back on the completion of the project. In order to prevent skipping assignments and time constraints, I pursue several tasks at once. In the course of the year, we tracked hundreds of separate customers and programs at a single location and a variety of users worked together at the same spot. You will prepare and operate in the way you want at the Basecamp. It's the budget's best particle management software which is easy to navigate and monitor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love how easy it is to make small groups for my students so that they can collaborate and share resources. It also allows them to manage real word projects. I can group students together based on their project. They can communicate via the chat, and/or forum. They can make tasks for each other. It really is a fully featured group project management service. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I haven't had any problems. Basecamp is a great resource for project management. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

They love working with educators. Contact them if you want to use it for your class. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My class is a very open ended class with group projects. I could easily place students into small groups and help manage their projects. It's also not limited to school e-mails, so I can add emails of parents and community members to collaborate with my studetns. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Mostly I like the dashboard. We've been using Basecamp 2 for over 5 years now and during this time it became my preferred tool for project management. Besides, I also like the fact that you can create a project just for the client and/or share only certain resources with the client, which is a great way of preserving privacy. Another feature that we definitely love is the easiness of managing contacts and creating groups. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As files keep pilling up, I discovered that's very hard to delete them. There's no way of deleting in bulk, which a find a little strange. Another issue that could be improved is the calendar, which at this point lacks many features that are so needed - exporting calendar, syncing with other tools... We currently don't use it.

Probably I would improve the usage of discussions, because if you start a discussion on Basecamp, it gets buried after a while and since there's no possibility to assign it to an user, it's kind of hard to keep track of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We run projects through Basecamp. It works very well as an archive for us and helps us being on track. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Basecamp is a user friendly platform that makes project management seamless. I use it approximately twice a week to process new bookings from an important client. It has been a highly effective method for eliminating unnecessary e-mails back and forth between our organization and the client. This saves us all time and energy. An additional benefit is that it consolidates all of our bookings and communications with the client in one place. I would highly recommend Basecamp to anyone in need of a project management platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Through Basecamp, I categorize my projects in various parts and assign them to each member and in this way I will come to know about the project completion by a particular member and we evaluate the project progress. It is equipped with calendar, which tells about the time spent on the project and when to submit our particular project, so that nothing important could be missed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Since I am using this project management platform I have not faced any major problem with this tool. I always like its features and functions. It keeps efficient functionalities. What I dislike its cost they must compromise with their packages. Otherwise its features and support are providing efficient services. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I will highly recommend it to all sized business set ups, though I did not found it price so cost effective but it has various features which could eventually benefit you to great extent. I am a frequent user of this tool which has become an effective collaborative platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is integrated with various platforms which help to share the files across our departments. Basecamp provides us a ‘to do list’ where we manage our goals, it mark those projects which have competed and notifies about those which are pending or need attention. In order to assist members I carry out live chats in a group or send SMS in private. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Inexpensive offers a format to keep "everything in one place" related to jobs and sub-jobs. There are a lot of programs that do this, but they have much higher price tags. Basecamp has everything you need -- email replies, file storage, contributors and access settings, project hierarchy. Basecamp also does that combination (sort of like slack) of making people feel like they are doing something less formal than an email but more formal than a chat. Something this means people are more responsive on basecamp -- and will reply with the information you need and fewer formalities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Easy to create or be invited to an indiscernible matrix of projects and tasks. If you work in it every day, it makes sense. If you are popping in and out, it is confusing. Like trying to find a file in someone else's personal file structure, this is often only intuitive to the person who sets it up. If you want it o be really effective, you need to establish a set way of sorting things, similar to how you would on a shared server. Job numbers, categories, etc. I've worked with a lot of companies who use basecamp, yet very few of them seem to do this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Getting teams on the same page and ensuring "visibility" in a way that lets users opt in or out of notifications. working with teams from different organizations is simple, unlike in some other corporate programs. I've used this as an agency employee to work with a number of companies, and my dashboard shows multiple options on login -- so I can track multiple projects at a time. It's nice that you can have access to a large number of contributors to loop into any conversation -- and those people can see it, but they don't necessarily have to be spammed on a cc of every "email."

The Basecamp is an Online Collaborative Hub to work with a huge team and managing projects, resources at a standalone platform. The clean & simple interface of Basecamp gives it an attractive look.

There are different sections where all the stuff for the project can be managed easily like; Campfire - for conversation between team members, Docs & files - to access all the required resources, To-do - to assign the task to each member and set the deadline, and many more amazing features are available for the ease of usage for any organization.

Thus, these all features increase the popularity of basecamp over another platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Till now, I didn't see any disliking feature. It seems to be very affordable and a stable platform for working with a team Online. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This amazing platform is used by me for working on a project with my team. While using this platform, it benefits us a lot because of a standalone platform for all our multiple usages like Conversation, access to a resource, meetings between clients, task distribution, etc

So, overall it is the best platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The UI is really quick to start with. To-dos, message boards and announcements facilitate efficient contact in your company with others. It is easy to use basecamp to share files regardless of type. My favorite function is design activity. It simplifies collaborating with the whole design team so you can see who did everything in the framework. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Often alerts are lost. To make sure you don't miss anything, you need to check your settings. There are so many possibilities and features to get you through a frustrating stage if you don't do the right thing. Unable to drop community pings once they have entered.

Effective collaboration and step-by - step project management with Basecamp become a breeze. It helps to add people and to communicate in the same place. To-dos can be quickly tracked to recall activities and unfinished work. Basecamp allowed our team to default planning. File & File has also helped make it easier for our partners to share vital information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
