Where Software Development Teams Get Work Done

Join the thousands of developers who use Basecamp to design, develop, test, and deploy, without the endless meetings, emails, and stress.

Basecamp was made by developers, for developers.

When we built Basecamp, we didn’t just create a new piece of software. We created an entirely new framework, Ruby on Rails. Rails was invented by Basecamp Co-Founder David Heinemeier Hansson, and Basecamp itself was the world’s very first Rails app.

We know what it takes to ship. Which is why we built Basecamp to remove the endless distractions that inevitably creep up during the software development process.

But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what real people working on real projects have to say about Basecamp:

“We replaced email and chats for tracking issues in our software and improved our communications between departments.” -Luis Carrasco, Bambu Code

“The daily report helps me keep up on what the team is doing without emails throughout the day.” -David Lim, Vernier Software & Technology

“Before Basecamp, I ran my freelance web development business basically from a spreadsheet, then I moved to Basecamp and my life is so much less stressful. Basecamp has increased my happiness exponentially.” -Patrick Krebs, Sad Robot Software

Basecamp makes software development teams more efficient.

While we have our own unique approach to software development, we recognize that every team needs to find the process that works best for them. That’s why we built Basecamp to be flexible enough to make every software project more efficient, no matter what methodology you use.

Kanban, Scrum, Agile or Waterfall…Basecamp welcomes all. Our tool offers intuitive progress charts, to-do lists, schedules, direct messages, group chat, documents, and everything else you need to reduce the friction and distractions that come with software development projects.

With Basecamp, software development teams can focus on the code, not the chaos.


Work with developers across the table or across the globe.

Great software requires great developers. Sometimes these devs are sitting right across the table from you. But what about when they’re located many time zones away?

Whether your team is here or abroad, in-house or contract, Basecamp helps keep everyone on time and on task. Share ideas, ask questions, assign tasks, give feedback, set up automated check-in’s, manage permissions, monitor approvals, and so much more.

With Basecamp, you spend less time tracking down developers and more time building.


Manage every stage of development, all in one place.

From gathering requirements to squashing bugs (and everything in between), Basecamp was built to handle every stage of the software development lifecycle. Each project inside Basecamp features a customizable interface, meaning your team can add and remove feature blocks and tools as you see fit, and track progress in real time.

With Basecamp, every team at every stage on every device is now in sync.



What Software Development Teams Use to Manage Everything.

Basecamp is more than just a project management tool used by thousands of software development teams — it’s a better way to work. Teams that switch to Basecamp are more productive, better organized, and far more efficient than before.

Keep it together. Put it in Basecamp.
