Try Basecamp for free

Unlimited users, no-obligation 30 day free trial

Additional details

What does “no per user fees” mean?

Many group software applications charge a fee for every user that you add to the system. Basecamp doesn't. Whether you have 5 or 500 users on your account, the total price is always the same. As your company grows, your Basecamp costs remain fixed, predictable, and affordable.

What happens when the trial’s up? Will we be charged?

No. We don’t ask for your credit card up front, so we can’t charge you until you decide you want to purchase Basecamp. You’re always in control. At any time during the trial, or when the trial is up, you can decide what you want to do. If you want to continue, we’ll ask for your credit card then. If not, no problem — you can click a single button to cancel, no questions asked.

What if we need more than 30 days to evaluate Basecamp?

If you haven’t purchased Basecamp before the trial ends, and you need a little more time, just let us know. We’re happy to extend your trial.

Is there any limit to the number of projects we can run?

No. You can run as many teams and projects on Basecamp as you’d like. There’s never an additional charge for adding more people or doing more work in Basecamp. (Note: Earlier versions of Basecamp used to charge by the project, but Basecamp 3, the version you’ll be signing up for, has no limits so you’re all good).

Do you have enterprise pricing for large companies?

If you have more than 100 employees, we recommend reaching out to our sales team. They can help set up a custom package for you with a dedicated account manager, a personal tour, and help getting set-up.

If you have questions we didn't cover, we'd be happy to answer them.

We now have vastly improved task assignment, follow-up and accountability as well as greatly enhanced internal communications. We have stopped using email for internal communications almost entirely.

-Waleed Sarwani, Sarwani Systems

For the first time in a long time our team is truly collaborating, and everyone is moving in the same direction, with the same goals. It's truly remarkable how quickly things have changed in just a week.

Our company has grown immensely in organization and efficiency. We have everything organized according to clients, projects, employees, etc., resulting in clear and concise communication amongst employees and with clients.

-Katie Greathouse, Health Economic Advisors, Inc.

Different time-zones are no longer an insurmountable obstacle.


Because the platform we used previously was so cumbersome and time-intensive to maintain, 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 itself.

-Sean Hay, One Click

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

I've tried a million things with clients. I work really closely with them, and finding something clients will use to collaborate with me is difficult. My clients just "get" Basecamp, right away, and use it all the time. They like that they can use it via email. They also love that it has everything they need in one area. It's fantastic.

-Nathan Snelgrove, Wildfire Studios

We don't have to dig through a million emails anymore.

-Spider McKnight, Six Pony Hitch

-Patrick Krebs, Sad Robot Software

Communication and time management has become more of a strong suit for us.

-Zachary Norton, Eastern Controls, Inc.

Information is flowing like water. A lot more transparency. Everyone is on the same page and knows the same information at the same point in time. No more secrets, closed doors, and blindspots.

The daily interaction between all our teams increased by 70%! Our entire team is volunteer, and Basecamp allowed us to avoid meetings, which made me a hero!

People can catch up on a project, regardless of when they joined the team.

-Anwar Ishak, 1000heads

A better sense of shared responsibility and accountability for our team success.

Less problems, down time, questions from the group. Once implemented, everyone knows where to obtain the information without asking for it every single time. They know basecamp has everything relevant to their day-to-day.

-Vinicius Jucá

Nothing can be forgotten, nothing gets lost, and everyone knows what the other is doing.

-Jörn Hendrik Ast, Superhelden-Training GbR

Basecamp was the only tool that I did not need to explain how to use to my team. It saved a lot of time for me.

As the small business owner, it has allowed me to have the confidence to not have a brick and mortar office.

We generate zero emails. Action items never get lost in the shuffle anymore. New ideas and projects actually get off the ground now.

The transparency across departments, and the ability to eliminate bottlenecks in projects that were not previously visible. Our throughput time on standard projects has decreased by 30% with Basecamp.

-Rick Regole, iCONN Systems

Having one central place to communicate with team and then present final work to client for approval has streamlined our entire workflow.

-Sandra Riehl, Saris Media

Fewer and shorter meetings. Simpler collaboration with external partners. Less time spent documenting the outcome of meeting.

-Henrik Nordborg, HSR

It makes responding more organized and more interactive. I also like how you can see all the responses at a glance unlike email. Once you delete previous emails you can not see the trail of responses.

-Tammy Bradley, Zoro

I feel much more organized and aware. Basecamp gives me visibility into my projects and my coworker's workload.

-Maren Dickey, Kuno Creative

Written communication has improved since my team started using Basecamp. Assigning responsibility through a to-do list has empowered my team to complete their tasks and create follow-ups without being asked to.

-Joshua Hackett, Self Employed

We are able to communicate so much more effectively. We all work from different locations and this keeps us from doing double work.

-Charlie Avila, Calvary Chapel Tustin

Communication over long periods of time is much more manageable and completely centralized. We save a lot of internal communication time by being able to check-in on the current state of a project without having to have regular meetings with the lead on that project.

-Christian Spencer, Prism Cam LLC

We are confidant we are no longer missing large or small tasks, things are not falling through the cracks.

Basecamp 3 is much easier to use with clients. The onboarding consists of a few lines indicating that they'll get emails from Basecamp and they can just respond back, no need to learn anything new or remember any credentials.

-Ben Lopatin, Wellfire Interactive

Everyone is always on the same page. And when they aren't, it's because they didn't check Basecamp that morning. Miscommunication is rarely a problem now, and we can always keep the focus on moving forward.

-Henrique Landim, Rowlbertos Media

We are constantly "spinning" up a basecamp for almost everything we do at our agency-from projects, client services to organizing our travel arrangements. We've tried many other PM tools and our team always defaults back to Basecamp.

-Trish Lessard, Media Junction

Our projects are smoother due to Basecamp because everyone is working from the same understanding. Deadlines are public, there's no confusion.

-Lisa Storer, Benz Resource Group
