2. Basecamp (Collaborative Project Management)

Basecamp is an online project management solution that emphasizes collaboration and communication over a reliance on traditional project charts, graphs, and statistics. With Basecamp, you can collaboratively manage multiple projects and people, manage to-do lists and project milestones, upload and share project files, share messages with project team members, collaborate on a whiteboard, access project data on your mobile device, and more. Figure 2 shows the Basecamp Milestones tab.

Basecamp is scalable to suit organizations of any size, with a variety of plans ranging from the Max plan offering unlimited projects and users for $149 per month to a free plan supporting one project with no file sharing. All paid plans offer a free 30-day trial.

Basecamp is one of a suite of applications developed by 37signals and integrates well with these other apps, including Highrise (contact management), Backpack (information organizing and sharing), and Campfire (group chat).
