Basecamp vs ProofHub

Business > Enterprises > Project Management
2016-08-23 12:22:12

Basecamp is one of the famous project management tool. It mainly provides an easy interface and basic features. Moreover, it lacks many important features essential for better project management. There are many alternatives available to Basecamp that provides much more features like time tracking, inline editing file uploads, google integration and more.

ProofHub claims to the best online collaboration tool in the cloud. It is a web based project management software that helps to manage, discuss and communicate projects with team members and clients at one central place. ProofHub proves to be the best alternative to Basecamp as it provides all important features that basecamp lacks such as time tracking, inbuilt browser chat, google integration, dashborad, proofing tool, caspre mode and more.

    I like the fact that the pricing model is not based on "per user" , but rather "# of projects". Also, I use their templates feature.

    Many features missing, many features need external plugins which would be hard to keep track of/etc.

  • No custom task status, tasks can't be moved between projects or task lists.
    Posted 2015-07-16 18:06:19 by AMarino
  • Gives a pretty complete overview, but nothing that shows 'at a glance' how the project is doing in terms of any timeline/etc.
    Posted 2015-07-16 17:59:42 by AMarino
  • Can make templates from an existing project, or from scratch

  • We didnot include others input on the new system implemented for our new business and yeah, we're introuble. With the broken control, our biggest challenge is to overcome the lack of betterment using online tools. Help me find the project management and time tracker tool?

    Wrike is completely fantastic. We had such a bad system before. This is genuinely liberating.

    Proofhub is a remarkable tool to plan, organize and deliver the work effectively. With this tool, I can easily share files, assign tasks, define responsibilities, set deadlines, hold discussions, create notes and keep track of everything in seconds. It is easy to use and does not add to the already built pressure on the team. The dashboard is so clean and organized, that help me to easily focus on my work and get the best done on time. Also the support team is always on their toes, listening to users queries and feedback. And the best thing is that with different kinds of plans available, there is something for everyone in Proofhub. Highly recommended!

    Nutcache est la meilleure application de facturation qu'il m'ait été donnée d'essayer dernièrement. Simple, efficace et gratuite!

    Un bel avenir pour cette solution qui va faire du bruit ! J'espère un app sur iphone et ipad pour bientôt. Philippe
