Running your business on email, texts, and meetings? It’s time to switch to Basecamp 3 instead. Trusted by hundreds of thousands of businesses worldwide, Basecamp is the saner, organized way to manage projects and communicate within your company.
Inside every Basecamp project you’ll find six core tools that will transform your business for the better:
1. To-dos for tracking work.
2. A Message Board for posting announcements and updates.
3. A Campfire chat room for quick casual chats with the team.
4. A Schedule for posting deadlines and milestones,
5. Docs & Files for organizing all the assets and notes everyone needs to do their work.
6. Automatic Check-ins to get insights from the team on a regular basis.
Instead of using MESSY EMAIL CHAINS...
...you’ll use message boards to keep the conversation organized, centralized, and on the record.
Instead of CONSTANTLY REMINDING PEOPLE WHAT TO DO...
...Basecamp’s to-do’s keep everything on track. If anything’s late or requires follow up, Basecamp lets you know and holds everyone accountable.
Instead of MEETINGS THAT WASTE TIME AND MONEY...
...Basecamp’s Automatic checkins prompt people to write up what they’ve worked on every day, every week, once a month — it’s up to you.
Instead of WONDERING WHAT'S GOING ON...
...you’ll use Basecamp’s reports to get the big picture on what’s going on. Across projects, you can see what’s overdue, who’s working on what, what worked was completed on a given day, and much more.
“Simply put, we get more work done, quicker, and better. Productivity is up. Errors are down. Clients are happier.”
-Patrick Sheffield, Moore Communications Group
“I no longer have to wonder whether I've asked for something to be done or whether it has in fact been done. Every member of my team is more accountable than we were before Basecamp.”
-John Drover, Roebothan McKay Marshall
“For the first time in a long time our team is truly collaborating, and everyone is moving in the same direction, with the same goals. It's truly remarkable how quickly things have changed in just a week.”
-Ryan Sullivan, WP Site Care

Ratings and Reviews
Old life new life
I forget what life was like before Basecamp. But I do know I don’t want to go back to that crazy time. I would wear a T-shirt with the Basecamp logo on it - that’s how excited I am about this app. If you have a business with 1 or more employees... get your credit card out right now. Don’t hesitate.
Unfriendly interface,not easy to navigate or find things. Doesn’t work the same in each device. Frustrating. Support difficult to find.
Clunky and unreliable
I’m writing this on an iPhone. I often have a poor connection as I commute through tunnels etc. The app can’t handle this situation at all. It hangs or crashes. It says there is no data in the Files section or Messages when I know there is because we’ve been putting data in there for months. It should at least acknowledge that it’s loading and not tell me everything has disappeared!
There are too many features and you can’t turn off the things your team doesn’t use so everything is cluttered and the most used parts of the app are buried behind a half dozen taps. I should be able to put shortcuts to the parts of the app I actually use on the front screen. Instead every time I load I have to go “tap, tap, tap” to get anything done.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
