Online Productivity Tools–23 Things Step #13

April 12th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Step #13 of the 23 Things on a Stick program concerns online productivity tools.  I’ve looked at a number of these tools and have been using Basecamp to manage SELCO’s current project implementing new Help Desk software.  In my mind, the jury is still out on this tool and we are only using a limited trial account.  So far, I’ve been impressed with the software but am not sure it would be cost-effective to use for all SELCO projects.  Like most of these online tools, there is a monthly cost and the trick is determining when the convenience of using an online tool becomes outweighed by the fees.  On the other hand, purchasing a conventional solution, a server to run it, and spending the time to administer it gets costly too.  I will have to compare the two scenarios to determine if we stick with it.

For now, however, I’m pretty impressed with Basecamp.
