Leave the grind behind.
Glide through projects instead.

It’s a struggle to juggle people, projects, clients, deadlines, and expectations — especially when you’re the underdog competing against larger companies. We’re like you, we get it. That’s why we built Basecamp.

In Basecamp, each project lives on a single page. With everything in reach, and every piece of information tracked and organized, everyone knows where to find what they need, and say what they need to say.

Here’s what project management in Basecamp looks like:

Not everything under the sun,
just the stuff to get things done.

Besides unlimited projects, you’ll get pings for private conversations, reports to summarize the essentials, notification protections so you aren’t constantly distracted, a timeline showing you everything that’s happening, exceptional customer service, and plenty more to round it out.

Basecamp also helps you consolidate billing, cut costs, and simplify onboarding. When you use Basecamp you don’t need separate apps for chat, file sharing, tasks, or basic scheduling. No more bouncing around, losing stuff, wondering where someone put something, paying multiple bills or onboarding people in multiple places. Less isn’t more, it’s better.

A well-run company is part
of the package, too.

Running a sane, sustainable business is part of our commitment to you. We’ve written bestselling books about our straightforward approach, and our employee handbook is public for everyone to see.

Email our CEO anytime, as well. He wants to hear from you.

Change for the better.

We asked our customers “What changed for the better since you switched to Basecamp for project management?” Thousands responded, here’s some of what they said:

“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.

Mission Control

Mission Control shows you which projects are on track and which ones need a helping hand.

Basecamp has chat built in so you don’t need to pay for a separate chat service like Slack.

Card Tables are for tracking work that moves through stages. It’s like kanban, only better.

Not everyone needs to know about things as they happen. Basecamp only notifies the people who need to know, so no one’s unnecessarily distracted.

Docs & Files

Every project includes space to organize, share, and store docs, files, and images. Cloud or local.

Message Board

Keep the entire conversation about a specific topic together on a single page.

Message Board

In Basecamp, everyone sees the same version of the full conversation. This way everyone’s always on the same page. No more forwarding emails to bring people up to speed.

Since not everyone needs to know about things as they happen. Basecamp only notifies the people who need to know, so no one’s unnecessarily distracted.


Set up events, deadlines, and milestones so no one misses anything important — ever.


The powerful place to track work, deadlines, responsibilities, progress, and details.


Instantly understandable, impossibly powerful, Basecamp’s to-do lists do much of the heavy lifting for you.

Make as many lists as you want, assign as many people as you need, be notified when things are late or complete. It’s the full package in the simplest form.

We invented “Hill Charts” to give you a visual, intuitive sense of where projects really stand.

Hill Charts

Progress is more like a hill than a straight line. Basecamp-exclusive Hill Charts provide a unique look into what remains to figure out (uphill), and what’s in production (downhill). Hmm, tell me more.

Invented here, and only available in Basecamp, Hill Charts are game changers. Once you use them you’ll never want to work without them again.

“The Lineup” shows you where every project stands, from start to finish, all at once.


Today’s always the line right down the middle, and each project has a start and end date on either end. This way you can see how much time remains on each one, relative to today, in a single glance.

Add a “Door” and link up other services you use right alongside Basecamp’s built-in tools.
