How is family life in your home, busy? Do your family members keep their tasks, communications, deadlines, announcements organized for school, work, sports, events, and more? Or does your family run on a helter-skelter mode? Basecamp is just the app that can help.
Who (or What) is Basecamp
Basecamp is an online cooperation app that lets people manage their work together and communicate with one another. You can use it to keep track of all the tasks, deadlines, files, discussions, and announcements that happen around work, or in this case, your family.
Basecamp used to be called 37signals, but the company changed its name to Basecamp in 2014 to focus on its most popular product. That product is known as Basecamp.
Families Benefit from Basecamp
Basecamp is more than just a project management tool — it’s a better way for your family to stay on top of everything that happens at home. Family members that switch to Basecamp are more productive and better organized.
Families have a lot on their plates. From getting up and getting to school or work, to handling tasks, scheduling and attending events, keeping in touch with each other, and even planning for sports or after-school events. So, how does a typical family use Basecamp?
You may be surprised to learn that Basecamp 3 has the flexibility for families typically used within companies. Each family member has the tools needed to work together; message boards, to-dos, schedules, docs, file storage, real-time group chat, and automatic check-in questions. You can rename them, turn off the ones you don’t need, or integrate with third-party tools like time trackers to tailor things to the family’s projects.
An essential part of every family undertaking is keeping people informed so that nothing falls through the cracks and everyone knows what to do. Basecamp makes it easy to see the big mountain, as well as a small hill. Whether you’re a CEO (head of the family), a project manager (Parent), or an individual child, Basecamp has you covered.
There are two different options as to pricing. First is Basecamp Business that gives you a 30-day free trial. You don’t need a credit card to signup, and you can cancel at any time. The cost is $99/month.
In case you can’t afford the monthly fee, why not think about Basecamp Personal. Now, I’ll admit; Personal is limited in its features. However, it is FREE – forever. Enjoy setting up three projects, have 20 users and 1 GB of storage. If you find that you do not have enough projects, you can always upgrade.
