Basecamp has no free option, but any price point allows for an unlimited number of users, and the storage space available per-dollar is considerably more generous than that of the other two tools. Similar to the other tools, the security level of this tool is rated “high,” and the administrative and user skills are comparable to those of Central Desktop and ProjectSpaces.
The benefits and key features that differentiate Basecamp from the other two tools are time-tracking and the ability to integrate project information with the Highrise contact management system, which can manage volunteer or donor contact information, and is discussed in the Data Management lesson. The main drawback to Basecamp is that while you do receive more storage space for your investment than with the other two products, there is a maximum storage capacity of 50 GB.
The comparison table shows that Basecamp has many core features and functionalities that are not discussed in this lesson. For example, you can chat or instant message with your project partners. You can search for items across workspaces and print out task completion reports.
