Duct Tape Review: Basecamp
Basecamp is a web app with a very nice set of features for project management. The software is the creation of 37 signals and is one of a suite of tools built to do some very useful things. I use Basecamp to manage client projects. I can upload files, create to do lists, milestones and messages in a very user friendly interface. But, because the files are all online, I can also share and give permissions to others on a project by project basis. S,o each of my clients can have access and I can give file editing permission to a graphic designer working with me on a project. When I update a file or create a message each party is automatically notified.
Basecamp also includes something called Whiteboards. Writeboards are sharable, web-based text documents that let you save every edit, roll back to any version, and easily compare changes. Writeboards are great for collaborative writing or for writing on your own.
Basecamp comes in a variety of pricing schemes, including free. I give it my 5 rolls out of 5 rating
I’ve decided to add a new feature to this blog. About once a week I’m introducing a small business marketing tool that I have personally found useful. Yes, some links may be affiliate links, but if I don’t like it, you won’t read about it.
