Integration of Asana and Basecamp 3

Asana is a web-based project management and collaboration platform. It was founded by Dustin Moskovitz, Justin Rosenstein , and co-founder of Facebook, Andrew McCollum in 2008. Asana is based on the freemium business model. This means that the software is free up to a certain number of users. If a company needs more users than what they have allotted, they can pay for an upgrade, or they can pay for premium features separately.

Basecamp 3 is a project management and collaboration tool. It was developed by 37signals out of Chicago, Illinois in 2004. Basecamp 3 is also a freemium product. Basecamp is based on a SaaS (Software as a Service. model. This means that users can use the software for free, but they are limited to a certain amount of users and extra features require payment.

Basecamp 3 was released in 2013, but the company has been around since 1999. The company made its name for creating web-based project management tools for individuals and small teams. In 2006, they created the Campfire chat tool, which was integrated into their other products. In 2009, the company released Basecamp 2 with the intent to improve upon their previous version of Basecamp (1. In 2013, they released Basecamp 3, which incorporated Campfire into the product and changed the look of it to match the rest of their product suite (Basecamp, Highrise, Backpack, Writeboard.

The product management team for Basecamp 3 wanted to create a better experience for users of both Asana and Basecamp 3. They wanted to integrate Asana and Basecamp 3 more closely to allow users to better communicate between the two systems while keeping each system’s unique features intact. They wanted to add more functionality, such as allowing users to add attachments from Asana to a Basecamp 3 task without leaving the Asana interface. A quote from the blog post by David Heinemeier Hansson of 37signals sums up the reason for the integration. “We want to bring people together. To make it easier for you to work together wherever possible – not just across projects, but across apps too. That’s why we’ve been working on bringing Asana into Basecamp 3”.

    Integration of Asana and Basecamp 3

With this release, Asana and Basecamp 3 now share a user database. They also share some features such as a shared inbox in both products. These changes mean that users get notifications about activity on tasks in Asana and vice versa. There is also an option within Asana to convert tasks into "Projects" that are accessible from within Basecamp 3. The process of converting Asana tasks into Basecamp 3 projects is similar to using a tagging system (which is how attributes are added to tasks in Asana. Both products can be used at the same time, so that either one can be used in lieu of the other without losing any information. This allows users of either product to continue using them but still stay connected with all of their coworkers who may be using either product.

This integration also makes it easier for users to work with those who may not be using either product. For example, if there is a task on Asana that needs to be assigned to someone who uses Basecamp 3, any users who have access to that task will now receive notifications about updates made by others on that task (even if they don’t use Asana. This integration gives users of both products more flexibility when it comes to communicating with other coworkers.

    Benefits of Integration of Asana and Basecamp 3

There are many benefits from integrating these two products that were previously separate. One benefit is that it allows users more flexibility with communication between coworkers who may or may not be using either product. Another benefit would be that it increases visibility of tasks across different projects by having them all accessible from one central place (Basecamp. This integration could also make it easier for team members who use different project management tools by making those tools easier to integrate with each other (both with Asana and with each other. With this integration, users can focus on what they do best (Asana is good at managing tasks and Basecamp is good at managing projects), instead of trying to remember which tools do what in order to communicate with coworkers who use different products. This integration also makes it possible for employees who are new to either or both products to feel like they are quickly able to get up-to-speed with their coworkers who already use these products because they can learn just one system instead of having to learn two different systems.

This decision has resulted in many benefits for both companies as well as their customers. One benefit is that it brings together two different companies that have been competing for years in the project management space under one umbrella. Another benefit is that this integration opens up new opportunities for growth by making it easier for their customers to work together seamlessly, regardless of whether they use either product or not. It also makes it easier for users of either product to communicate more easily with users of either product because there are fewer tools they need to learn in order to stay connected with coworkers who use either or both products. It also creates a better experience for users who need regular access to data from both systems because they no longer have to switch between two different interfaces in order to access that data.
