A rapidly growing start-up in the biotech field. Main requirements not limited to, but include - cloud sharing, interacting through comments and messages, being able to specify deadlines, estimated time interval, time-lapsed/remaining, assign multiple tasks (task dependencies), and label their priority level, and have integration with a nice group of tools/apps (google and so on).

Basecamp is a great product for remote teams. It is a mindset. If you're looking for a standard project management tool with lots of features, ClickUp is a great choice. It's a bit slow (especially mobile), but in terms of features, it's unbeatable.

A good collaboration tool was always a big challene in the most team I've met. The main challenge is there are many tools with tons of features. They'r all great in the paper. But in practice, the team usually doesn't enjoy collaborating using them. This is the challenging part. The project management tools should be well designed to keep simplicity in combination with well-chosen features to bring the most productivity and activity among the team. I'm thinking about many of my stacks, ClickUp is one of the few choices which I've never thought about migrating about. I can't describe it in text, I just advise you to try it once and you'll understand. The team behind ClickUp is really active. They really care about delivering new features.

Decisions about Basecamp and Podio
Matt Safaii

I needed a tool that not only kept everything in one place, but was also easy for clients to use. I first started using Notion and fell in love with it. I eventually had problems when clients didn't want to use it or were confused on how it works. When multiple people are in a workspace, things can also get messy when there is no standard formatting set. Basecamp solved those problems for me by providing all the tools I need in one place. It is very intuitive and my clients love using it as well. I am also a fan of their pricing. Although it can be expensive at first if you are a small team, it is well worth it when you scale.

The team at Basecamp make great products and I will continue to use any tools they release. Also a huge fan of their email app, HEY.

Since always, all the documentation of our company has been full of elements that go beyond texts or lists ... And with Notion we use related tables, canvan, code blocks, includes, snipets ... It feels like everything can be done :)

I especially like to have your private notes, to be able to work on them little by little and even to be able to show them to whoever you decide, to finally move them to the official space.
