"Okay" Project Management"
What do you like best about Basecamp?

I would pretty much consider Basecamp as essentially a Forum. I am able to create and comment on message boards, upload media like documents and how-to tutorials and more, and I am able to integrate it with my Outlook and Calendars. It also has a platform for an online group chat that allows me to talk with other co-workers who are online which is handy.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

I do not like how this program costs me $99 per month. It is just unnecessarily expensive. All of these products nowadays have recurring subscription costs and to be honest, it is getting annoying, especially when they cost as much as this does. For something like this, I wouldn't even want to spend more than $50 per month. We have enough expenses as it is and to have something like this that raises that expense costs up by a lot is just not even close to good.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

This program allows us to be more productive and keep things in order, keep track of things, and more. It allows us to build our own forum for our company and collaborate with and advance our output. Compared to some other competitors of Basecamp, we are also saving a lot of money as others tend to charge multiple hundreds for the same or worse.

"Decent Project Management Website"
What do you like best about Basecamp?

Basecamp is a decent project management website. It is pretty good nonetheless, however, there are the downfalls as there always are. At Retro Host LLC we used Basecamp before switching over to Trello for a few reasons which can be found in another section of this review. Back to what I like best about Basecamp, it has a clean design, a fast website, and it is fairly easy to use. I like how we, at Retro Host LLC, are able to create teams and certain projects and have people added to those teams or projects. This allows for easier project organization and overall management of the entire plan. This allows us as a team at Retro Host to get together for an online group chat and allows us to talk with other co-workers who are online which is extremely handy. I also love the feature where I can link Basecamp with my calendars.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

To be honest, the biggest downside of Basecamp from me, as well as I am sure many others at Retro Host, is the $99 per month charge. That is just absurd pricing. Everything today is becoming a subscription model payment, but it feels like a lot of businesses do not know how to properly price for monthly, or just get greedy and upcharge to no tomorrow. For something like this, I would not even pay anything more than $30 a month, especially with Basecamp. I wish it had a better design for it, though the one now is nice, it could be much better. At least some improvement. Also, it is not really the best for assigning members to teams in my opinion and requires you to load into each project or team to see everything inside making it a bit lengthy of a process.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

As a company, Basecamp allows us to be much more productive, keep track of everything, and keep everything organized. We can build a forum-like system and integrate it into Retro Host LLC as a sales team to allow us all to collaborate and give our feedback. Despite my dislikes about Basecamp, we also were saving much more money by using it over some of the other project management sites that tend to charge hundreds.

"Good Product for Team Communication"
What do you like best about Basecamp?

The format is user-friendly and laid out in such a way where information is easy to find. I like how things are organized and my member can get their information immediately and know where to look for updates.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

It's a bit pricey. We're a smaller group and sometimes it's hard to justify the price of this. I feel that if you have a small enough team, you should be able to pay half the price of the $20 cost.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

We have a hard time with project management and communication with a team that is all over the United States. However, Basecamp has helped solved this issue tremendously.

"Effective communication between colleagues, ideal for managing team projects."
What do you like best about Basecamp?

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.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

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.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

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.

"Manage projects with Basecamp"
What do you like best about Basecamp?

Basecamp allows to obtain an overview of the project, which allows managers to easily evaluate the tasks of each person, even considering the completion period, which greatly facilitates the constant monitoring of the work of each professional, improves the internal management of the projects and allows project managers to be aware of updates. Another thing is the cost of Basecamp, which is quite accessible for most companies, since Basecamp does not charge per user, but offers unlimited users and projects for the same price. In addition, Basecamp customer service is very professional.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

Although the integration of Basecamps is very efficient, I feel that there are some features that turn out to be a bit redundant. Another thing is the notifications that each member of the project will receive, which must be activated manually for each member when creating any new task, which takes a lot of time for our team. Another thing is the sending of information offered by Basecamp, which is very slow and sometimes inefficient, so it is preferable to use any other online information transfer platform.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

Basecamp is an important application that is used in almost all departments, mainly Marketing, IT and human resources, to manage projects. Before acquiring this tool, our projects were mainly managed with Excel, but now we are able to do much more, easily managing time and evaluating the performance of each employee with specific project activities.

"Basecamp - Simplifying Project Management and Elevating Team Collaboration"
What do you like best about Basecamp?

The best I like about Basecamp is that it provides an extensive set of features that cover the whole project management lifecycle. From task management and scheduling to file sharing and team conversation, the program offers a central hub for groups to collaborate efficiently. The capability to create to-do lists, assign responsibilities, and set deadlines assists groups stay structured, even though the real-time messaging and commenting attributes promote effective communication and decision-making.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

The thing I dislike about this application is that it will work on a flat fee pricing system, which might be less cost-effective for small teams or individuals when compared with other software programs that provides per-user rates.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

Basecamp successfully handles common problems within project management and offers several positive aspects to teams. First of all, it centralizes project-related info, tasks, and discussions, getting rid of the requirement for scattered communication across several platforms. This makes sure that team associates have got easy accessibility to project updates, documents, and appropriate discussions, assisting collaboration and lowering the risk of miscommunication.

"Enhance You Client Relationships Using Basecamp for Document Sharing"
What do you like best about Basecamp?

1) Ease of use; 2) ability to readily structure documents into single or multi-level folders; 3) our clients aren't obligated to license Basecamp to access/download documents; 4) Basecamp invites and curates comments; 5) client contacts can be readily added for document access, with customized email invitations; 6) schedules can be set for task assignments; 7) a message board can be used to provide update info to those on distribution; 8) there's an attractive price-point option for a 2-user firm, with an upgrade path to use without any user maximum (note the low price-point allows you to engage an unlimited number of customers, limited only to a generous overall data storage cap.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

What would be useful would be capturing the number of customer document opens and dates opened via a downloadable CSV file. Note the customer service response to a query via email is pretty good for the price.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

1. Providing clients with shared documents that they can readily download on demand, not having it lost or misplaced in their Word or email folders; and 2. We are interested in cultivating dialog based on our documents provided, captured in comments that are curated, rather than lost, or remaining segmented in a series of emails. Benefits realized include greater service differentiation valued by clients; ease in validating which documents were made available to clients; ability to shape how documents are accessed by a client based on our structured organization.

"With Basecamp keep your team more than organized"
What do you like best about Basecamp?

One of the favorite parts of using basecamp, is that it only maintains a single price to be acquired, it does not care about the number of users it manages, but its license has a standard price, it is very simple, innovative for tracking all the activities that are carried out in the department of work or project assigning, allowed me to use a detailed follow-up of tasks that I had assigned in the long term.

What do you dislike about Basecamp?

I think it's great to get a standard price regardless of the number of users, but it would be more ideal to offer a variety of prices since not all users could cancel the value of the package monthly, the user interface would be very good if one at a time to customize it, I could add the start and end times, as well as it would be great to use list functions to organize documents and tasks.

What problems is Basecamp solving and how is that benefiting you?

It helped me to improve the processes of organizing myself persinally in my assigned tasks, it helped me to the file exchange process, this is where it has allowed me to work comfortably.
