Basecamp is project management software designed to handle complex tasks which can’t be fully managed through a simple checklist. Basecamp allows the management of all parties to a project from the designer, to the manufacturer, to the supplier, to the distributor, to the salesroom.
Basecamp allows business owners to keep tabs on where a project is at and whether colleagues have time to work on a different area. When a task is complete within a project, the personal working on that area simply ticks it off as ‘done’.
As a small business owner you should have hundreds of exciting new ideas rush through your head every day, however most of these either get forgotten in time or don’t seem all that great a few days later. If this sounds like you, you may need to consider an app which helps you to manage your fresh ideas and bring them in to reality. One such app, Wunderlist, could be your new best friend.
Wunderlist allows you to organize ideas or tasks instantly through Siri or keynote input, and then organize theses ideas into categories such as business and personal. What’s more, you can set dates for ideas which you’d like to have some more work done on them, and Wunderlist will send you e-mail alerts if you are late.
