In May 2015, 37signals unveiled their new product Basecamp 3. With this radical change they also announced that the older version of Basecamp Classic will not be supported anymore. What has motivated 37signals to make these drastic changes? Why did they make that decision? What are the benefits of the integration of Basecamp 3 and Basecamp Classic? Will Basecamp 3 replace Basecamp Classic in the future? This article will answer these questions while providing a clear overview of both products.
37signals is an American software company founded in 1999 by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson. Their first product was Basecamp, a project management software. In 2010, 37signals released a new product named Highrise. It is a CRM (Customer Relationship Management. system. On May 19th, 2015, 37signals announced that “the best way to talk about what Basecamp is going to become is to show you” (Basecamp 3.0. With this announcement, they also revealed their new product, Basecamp 3.0 which included several significant changes to the original product. Basecamp was originally developed as a stand-alone software but with the new update, it became a full-fledged SaaS (Software as a Service. which means that it will be hosted for users online instead of having to download it and install it on their own computers. The new version of Basecamp 3 also uses a different pricing model compared to its previous versions. The new price model involves a monthly subscription fee rather than buying the whole package at once. Both versions of the software, Basecamp 3 and Basecamp Classic are available as iPhone/iPad and Android apps. However, only the newer version will be available on Windows 10 and MacOS Sierra operating systems.
Basecamp Classic was introduced in 2004 as a simple project management tool. It was developed as a stand-alone software and it was not possible to access it online. The main reason why 37signals created a stand-alone software rather than an online service was because they wanted to offer a complete offline experience without relying on any internet connection. They also wanted users to have access to all the features of Basecamp Classic, including files when they were offline. With this in mind, they developed Basecamp Classic as a stand-alone software that users could install on their own computers. However, even though Basecamp Classic was developed as a stand-alone software it still had limited storage space which made it impossible for users to store large files in it. Since then, the storage space has been expanded with the release of every new version of Basecamp Classic. In 2012, 37signals released two new versions of Basecamp Classic named “Highrise for Outlook” and “Basecamp for iPhone” with all three versions (Basecamp Classic, Highrise for Outlook and Basecamp for iPhone. integrated into one single app called “Basecamp Classic” which allowed users to manage their projects and customer information in one place. Although this update brought some improvements to the original version of Basecamp Classic it still lacked some of the features that made Basecamp 3 such a successful product.
Basecamp 3 provides an easy-to-use interface which makes it easy for everyone to use it regardless of their technical skills. Another advantage of using Basecamp 3 is that no matter where you are or how slow your internet connection is you can always access your projects from anywhere with just one click (Basecamp 3. With this update, 37signals changed the way projects are being set up and managed by displaying all the workflows inside the same page instead of creating separate pages for each step of the workflow which makes it easier for users to understand how things work in Basecamp 3 (Shankland. The most important change made in Basecamp 3 is that users can now manage different projects within one single application without having to switch between multiple applications (Basecamp 3. This enables them to manage multiple projects simultaneously without worrying about missing something or forgetting something important in another project. Another important change made in Basecamp 3 is the addition of file versioning which keeps track of every single change made to a file and allows users to rollback to any previous version if necessary (Caldwell. In addition, with Basecamp 3, managing projects becomes much more straightforward since all the communication between team members will take place inside the same application which eliminates issues related to miscommunication, misplacement of files and confusion over whose responsibility is doing what (Caldwell.
Basecamp Classic provided most of its features through different modules which were introduced with every version upgrade. Examples of these modules include “Tasks”, “Calendar”, “Files” and “Notes” etc. Each module offered different functions and capabilities depending on what type of project you were working on and what your needs were at that particular time. For example, if you were managing a small project containing few tasks you could turn off some modules like “Calendar” or “Files” and focus on other modules like “Tasks” or “Notes”. In addition to this, each module had its own limits related to storage space, number of tasks or number of files etc. which made it impossible for users to upload large files or create unlimited number of tasks or notes etc. One main advantage offered by these modules was that they were compatible with each other so if you had project files stored in “Files” module you could turn on “Calendar” module and add those files into it as well without losing any information related to that project file (Caldwell. Another advantage offered by these modules was that they were easily customizable according to the user’s specific needs and preferences (Caldwell. However, since there were fewer features available through each module compared to Basecamp 3 there was less flexibility when working with projects using Basecamp Classic (Caldwell.
One main disadvantage offered by this update is that since users can no longer access their projects via web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox etc., they will no longer be able to edit tasks using offline mode (Caldwell. Along with not being able to edit tasks when offline users will no longer be able to access their projects when offline either since all projects are now stored online only which means that if there is no internet connection at work or at home users will not be able to work on their projects until they get back online again (Caldwell. Along with this, another disadvantage is that since users can no longer open two instances of the same application at once they cannot work on two different projects at once if both projects are located inside one single application (Caldwell. Another disadvantage offered by this update is that due to integration many features are now only available via IOS app for both versions which might be problematic for some users who prefer using desktop apps over mobile apps especially when dealing with tasks using keyboard shortcuts instead of touchscreen (Caldwell. Along with this another disadvantage offered by this update is lack of support for Windows XP operating system since only Windows 10 operating system is supported by both versions while Windows XP will not be supported anymore by future updates (Caldwell. Another disadvantage offered by this update relates to lack of backward compatibility since only newer versions are backward compatible while older versions are not backward compatible with newer versions so older versions might become obsolete if newer versions were used instead (C
