Although SCM has been trading for many years now, we have recently enjoyed a growth spurt. As demand for our services and products has increased, the number of team members has also grown to keep up with this increasing workload. Organising and keeping track of tasks and projects between teams has become increasingly difficult.
We started to use Basecamp a few months ago and it has provided a good solution to this problem and we are now using it as our main company communication tool. This has provided greater transparency within the company and clarity within our teams as to who is responsible for different tasks.
It provides messaging across the company, reducing internal emails to a minimum as well as a central place to hold information and documents that different teams need to work on.
As well as working in a web browser, apps are available for Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices so our mobile users are always kept up to date with office news and new projects. It is also simple to start using and the occasional time we have required support the response has been fast.
So theres the answer, we feel we are all better connected and the whole team can see the big picture and can easily pitch ideas in for consideration. We all spend less time on internal emails to each other, less time in meetings and have more time for our customers; just wish I had thought of it first!
