“We use Basecamp to manage our projects, but just as important are tracking and manage "tasks" that we perform for our clients.All one off requests are added to an overarching project that we create on an annual basis.So I've used it with my editor, I've used it with my website developer and host, and I've used it for a new project in the works. We are one big global community, where time zones do not matter.
we used to have a person dedicated almost exclusively to managing the marketing production workflow for our three brands.Now I spend about an hour a month setting things up, and the process manages entire project history is there in one easily visible place, everyone is up-to-date with where the project is so we can focus on discussing the important stuff rather than updating on what's happened since the last meeting.By having a single place to post all messages, files, and deadlines related to a project we remove the possibility of silo'd conversations.At our company we use Basecamp in place of email so it is required for our clients to post in their respective projects.While it's sometimes initially seen as a hinderance, the benefits become obvious to the client every time, making everyone's lives easier.” “We always know the status of tasks and to-dos in our projects.
We can quickly see if the results are in from the study or test that we were performing, so we know when it is time to move on to the next step.
I freelance as a web designer and I can create clear, concise, and organized information to my client.
They know what is going on at any point, so I think it also helps set a tone for a project and can also make everyone feel accountable.” Earlier, our targets remained on the excel sheets and were not followed properly. Moreover, we can see who is doing what.” “We used to print out all of our communication and docs at 3 different offices just to make sure we always were all up to date on our projects.
For the first 9 years, the committee did everything through email, meetings, etc, and there was one person in charge of following up with everyone and keeping everyone aware of what was going on.
Since I introduced them to Basecamp 3 and got them set up, we are all able to see everything that's going on, who needs help with what, what tasks need to be done and what is completed in real time.
Within those shifts 2-6 different employees are working. Everyone led their shift a little different from the next.
