“It's in Basecamp.”

Instead of stuff scattered everywhere, Basecamp combines everything you're working on in one streamlined, organized place. Everyone will know what to do, what's going on, and where to find things.


Get a 10,000ft view of your entire business.

Your Basecamp Home screen gives you a 10,000ft view of everything that’s happening across your whole business. You get an “HQ” for company-wide communication, dedicated spaces for your teams to work together, and private places to manage your company’s projects. You’ll feel back in control when you can see everything organized on a single screen like this.

All the tools your team needs. All in one place.

Inside every HQ, team, and project you’ll find six core tools: To-dos, Message Board, Schedule, Docs & Files, Campfire chat, and Automatic Check-ins.

Depending on how you work today, Basecamp may replace a bunch of separate products you use — allowing you to consolidate, eliminate cost and complexity, and rally around the only tool you really need: Basecamp.

“Previously we used few different tools stitched together, and all information was always scattered around those tools. In Basecamp, all things have their place - when I need something, I always know where to look.”

-Rolandas Barysas, MB Canarius

Get work done without having to remind people.

Basecamp's To-dos keep everything on track. Organize the work, set due dates, and assign responsibility. Any discussion about the task happens right on the same page. If anything's late or requires a follow-up, Basecamp tells everyone involved and holds people accountable.

Replace messy email chains with centralized, orderly discussions.

Basecamp's Message Boards keep conversation about a specific topic together on a single page. No more digging through your inbox, trying to reassemble a story from a series of fragmented replies. Plus, if you ever want to include someone else, you can just send them a single link to the thread in Basecamp rather than try to forward them a mess of emails.

“We can see exactly what needs to be done and when. We were missing tasks and deadlines before we found Basecamp. We're much more efficient now.”

-Tina Lannin, 121 Captions

Keep everyone in the loop on what's coming up.

Basecamp's Schedules display events and any dated to-dos for a project. Everyone on the project can see it, so they’ll all know what’s coming up. Any discussion about an event can happen right on the same page. You can even add Schedules to Google Calendar, iCal, or Outlook to see where events line up with everything else that's going on.

Guarantee that everyone always has the right file.

Basecamp's Docs & Files let you share documents, files, and images with your team. Since each project gets its own space, you never have to think about where to put something. Drop some files into a project and everyone included will automatically have access to them. Every change is tracked too, so you can stop relying on names like “presentation-final-final-v3”.

“Trading files is much easier using Basecamp than either Dropbox links or email.”

--Jeanne Marie Tokunaga, JMT Communications Management

Chat where you're at instead of flipping between apps.

Basecamp's Campfires give you a convenient place to chat with your team. When you‘ve got a quick question for the group and you don’t know who to ask, pop it in the Campfire and get a quick response. No more flipping between different products.


Get status updates without sitting through meetings.

Basecamp's Automatic Check-ins ask people to respond to questions like "what are you working on this week?" every day, every week, once a month — the question and frequency are up to you. Completely automated, just set it up once and it runs forever. All the answers are rolled up into one page.

“We don't need to spend as much time in meetings now that we use Basecamp.”

-Brad Vandiviere, Faith Chapel Billings

Rescue email from isolated inboxes.

Bascamp's Email Forwards give you a place for emails where everyone else can see them too. You can comment privately on the emails with your team, or reply to the original sender right from within Basecamp so the whole conversation is on the shared record.

Know what's going on instead of wondering.

Basecamp's Reports cut across every project and summarize key activity whenever you need it. Know what’s new/done/overdue, who’s working on what, everything that happened on a given day, everything a specific person has been doing lately, the current status on everything you’ve assigned to other people, and what deadlines are coming up next.
