About this App

Where it all comes together.

Basecamp’s the project management platform that helps small teams move faster and make more progress than they ever thought possible.

Leave the grind behind. Glide through projects instead.

It’s a struggle to juggle people, projects, clients, deadlines, and expectations — especially when you’re the underdog competing against larger companies. We’re like you, we get it. That’s why we built Basecamp.

In Basecamp, each project lives on a single page. With everything in reach, and every piece of information tracked and organized, everyone knows where to find what they need, and say what they need to say.

Here’s what a project looks like:

  • See how a project starts

  • See a project in progress

Not everything under the sun, just the stuff to get things done.

Besides unlimited projects, you’ll get pings for private conversations, reports to summarize the essentials, notification protections so you aren’t constantly distracted, a timeline showing you everything that’s happening, exceptional customer service, and plenty more to round it out.

Basecamp also helps you consolidate billing, cut costs, and simplify onboarding. When you use Basecamp you don’t need separate apps for chat, file sharing, tasks, or basic scheduling. No more bouncing around, losing stuff, wondering where someone put something, paying multiple bills or onboarding people in multiple places. Less isn’t more, it’s better.

The top choice of savvy teams looking for a big advantage.

Used by top notch marketers, ad agencies, designers, client services firms, consultants, software developers, freelancers, PR agencies, contractors, schools, non-profits, first responders, and many others. Over 75,000 organizations, across every industry imaginable, in 166 countries.

“I’ve used Basecamp for a million projects over the last decade and a half. It’s beautiful software that has resisted every wrong trend and stayed true to the things that mattered most. Highly recommended.”

Tobi Lütke, CEO at Shopify
