  • Hi , Great comparison with extensive list of tools. But I would like to suggest SwiftPPM from Digite, a comprehensive program and project portfolio management solution for an organization. Its rich set of features including task, defect, issue, timesheet, custom reports and many others along with wide integration capability have proved it to be the most worthy among various PM tool. Visit to learn more !

  • commented on ProofHub
    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!

    Nodoubt, Basecamp is good but it lacks important features like time tracking, private messages and integration with google. Have you tried proofhub? Features like time tracking, casper (hidden) mode, to-do's, discussions make it awesome. So, you don't miss anything.

    Basecamp sets the standard for ease of use and also importantly in data sharing with other applications. It would even be better if they told developers when they change their API!

  • Basecamp est clairement décrite comme la référence des outils de gestion de projet. Pour preuve, Collabtive propose un "basecamp importer" et la fonctionnalité est demandée dans les forums consacrés autres solutions.
