Booming business app!
Simply put, if you run a business that involves multiple employees working on the same projects, you're foolish if you do not utilize Basecamp. As a service-based company, we are beginning to rely so heavily on Basecamp. From time-stamped discussions and to-dos to task management with ease of use, Basecamp is a home run hit! We're less than a month into our company-wide usage (which has still cost us not a cent to this point) and I couldn't imagine not having a project management tool like this.
If you absolutely fight using this app at first, great! You should. Just as with everything that improves your life, it requires an investment of time by all users, as the app will prove useless otherwise. From the iPhone app to the iPad app and even the webpage access, our level of satisfaction is unmeasurable to this point! Nice work, Basecamp.
I've been using project management applications for years in the construction industry. The number one enemy of project management applications is adoption in your company. And it's not hard to see why a lot of that technologies are not adopted there too difficult to use they have too many confusing options that don't apply and you are unable to turn them off. The beautiful simplicity of this program is allowing me to run construction projects more smoothly and also run my vacation rental management company, all in the same application. If you've been frustrated by overly complicated project management applications that have a ton of great features but are too confusing for your staff to learn, and they keep going back to email, this is your solution!
Great app, but missing the smoothness of Basecamp 3
Basecamp 2 is a solid app but is missing some bells and whistles of Basecamp 3 including the text editor, assigning multiple people to a task, start/end times, multiple days for a task, automatic check ins, and a congruent view between the mobile/desktop layout. However, Basecamp 3 is missing some key features of 2, including mobile notifications, a week/month calendar view, integrations (like Gnatt charts), and has issues syncing with iCal. So given the lack of features/integrations with 3 we are currently sticking with 2. Both Basecamps have fantastic layouts that are easy to use/learn.
To Basecamp: if you guys could include all the features/integrations from 2 along with other features/integrations from platforms such as Wrike/Trello then you guys would be a 6 out of 5. Cheers!
