activeCollab vs Basecamp vs...

As a activeCollab developer, we think it is part of our job to help promoting activeCollab. Here is what we know from our clients and ourselves.

activeCollab vs Basecamp

In one word, activeCollab is old fashion self-hosted PHP script and Basecamp is SaaS.

You pay a one time license fee ($249 for small business and $499 for full package) for a copy of activeCollab and install it on your own hosting or in-house server. No limit on users, projects whatsoever. You need to take care of installation, backup. Lots of extensions and addons available.

You pay monthly subscription fee ($24-$149 per month) for Basecamp. Different pricing plans by user limit, project limit and space limit. You do not need to worry about install and backup, only need to subscribe. Also lots of extensions and addons.

activeCollab vs Open Source

There are a couple free, open source alternatives available, such as dotProject, ProjectPier.

Why pay? Because of its quality.

activeCollab is easy to use, clear to navigate and under the hood it has the best organized code base we ever seen among all the collaboration applications. You will get professional support from their staff, our 3rd party developers, as well as large amount of friendly community members.
