A powerful Basecamp alternative that is easy to use
See all your projects at once
Basecamp only allows users to view one project at a time, which severely limits a project manager’s ability to manage. Catching delays before they wreck a deliverable is essential to a project manager’s success. Limited visibility is typical in lightweight project management tools like Basecamp. With Workzone’s all status view, managers can quickly report project status or prep for last minute meetings easily.
The need for task dependencies is one of the classic signs that a team is outgrowing Basecamp. In fact, it is one of the most requested features we hear from our former Basecamp users. In most projects, certain tasks cannot begin until other tasks are completed. As projects become more complex and involve more people, the ability to link tasks and alert the next responsible party becomes an essential feature for project managers.
Identify items at risk and manage workload
When projects begin to grow in volume and complexity, it’s important to have a project management tool that makes it easy to allocate resources effectively across multiple departments. Without visibility into the workload of team members, some will have too much work and some too little.
Workzone makes it simple to see what tasks are on track or falling behind with status alerts. Late tasks are highlighted and can trigger automatic email alerts. Projects and phases slipping behind schedule are flagged with colorful caution symbols.
