project management tools like basecamp

If you are familiar to Basecamp, then you’d fit right in with iManageProject’s interface. Once you have created your first project, invite users then create a new message or to-do list. Add teammates to your messages to notify them via e-mail. Like Basecamp, your tasks are organized within to-do lists where you can specify actionable items and assign them. You can also attach a to-do list to projects milestones to track sets of tasks.

A very popular feature in Basecamp also included in iManageProject is the writeboards. A writeboard is a document where you can share any text like draft articles, ideas, suggestions, minutes of meetings, and more. Team members collaborate on a writeboard by editing them and comparing any other version side-by-side.

While Basecamp is still the standard for project management, it is interesting to find other tools that take the blueprint of Basecamp and offer a similar package with more affordable pricing. The Basic plan gets you 20 projects, 10GB storage, unlimited users, and time tracking – while the Enterprise Plan stretches you out to unlimited projects, and 100GB storage. All account offers includes a 30-day trial, but you can also sign up for an unrestricted free accounts which gives you one project and 1GB file storage.


iManageProject is a good tool for remote project managers who need the power and intuitiveness of Basecamp for the fraction of a cost. You might not get the elegant design and seamless interface that Basecamp is known for, but it is close enough that it gets the job done.

    The problem with a lot of these project management web apps is that they are too slow.
    I don't have time to wait for the page to refresh every time I perform the smallest action.

    That's why I use

    No page refreshing. Clean, cool-looking interface. It's fast, simple and functional. Most of my projects are individual or with small teams and it has everything I need. You should be able to sign up but the beta is filling up super fast. Post here if you don't get in and I'll let you know when more spots open up.

    Great post. It's important to consider how integrated solutions work as well, before loading up on separate project management apps. If you go with a single handed project management tool, you still have CRM and billing to worry about, which usually results in you over-paying for multiple applications and costly integrations, while the applications still won't communicate properly.

    Because of this, people are considering integrated solutions more closely. If you take WORKetc for instance, it combines CRM, project management, and billing already. They're deeply integrated, so no external integration is necessary, and you can manage an entire business under this system alone.
