Basecamp is a project management solution that gets all your projects stored and managed in one place online. Share any file with your team or client by just dragging it from your desktop right into your web browser and everyone has access to the latest versions of any document.
Great system for managing individuals and groups on projects, simple interface and notifications.
Prices just went up and while there is a 60 day free trial, there is no longer a free option.
Basecamp is a simple interface that does everything you need it to when managing projects. Includes great use of to do lists and discussions, the ability to upload files that groups can work on simultaneously, if you need to manage a project, this application rocks!

When I first looked at Basecamp by 37 Signals many years ago the interface was clunky, so when I checked it out a few months ago I was interested to see how it had advanced. I am not disappointed! Basecamp still has great features but the usability and design has made this into a “must have” tool.
Basecamp allows you to create multiple projects, each one with a distinct group of participants, to do lists, discussions and files.
A daily email will update you on any project changes, items awaiting completion and discussions so that you can see the status of the project at a glance.
It is simple to use, the design makes sense and it gives a multi-tasking lunatic like me a single place to communicate will all groups and oversea all projects. This is small web business heaven as far as I am concerned.
It is easy to add new users, and the charges only land with the administrator of the account, so all my groups get access to the groups free.
The one thing I would like to see available is the opportunity to control who in each group sees what, but that is only a half-hearted request, as Basecamp really delivers.
The pricing model has changed recently, I am unsure if they offer a free version at all any more, I have contacted support and will update this once I get a response.
