Spiffy Webapps From 37signals

I suppose these would be “Web 2.0” apps?  Either way, the webapps from 37signals seem pretty cool.

They currently offer:

  • Basecamp – Project management and collaboration – Collaborate with your team and clients. Schedules, tasks, files, messages, and more.
  • Highrise – Online contact manager and simple CRM – Keep track of who your business talks to, what was said, and what to do next.
  • Backpack – Intranet, group calendar, organizer – Share info, schedules, documents, and to-dos across your company, group, or organization.
  • Campfire – Real-time group chat for business – It’s like instant messaging, but optimized for groups. Especially great for remote teams.

All are online webapps with lots of AJAX and other goodies … subscription model with various levels.

Campfire looks interesting, but we are currently using Skype until we get our Jabber server happy again.

Backpack looks like something we could use, especially since our entire team is diversely located … well, *I’m* diversely located, and the rest are in one region.  🙂

Highrise may be of interest to our Sales folks … I’m having them look at it now.

Basecamp could be very useful if we fire off some of the larger development projects we are considering.

In any case, the company has been around for a bit and seems to be improving their offerings, so keep an eye on them.

DISCLAIMER:  I have *no* affiliation with 37signals, and I’m not even a customer at this time, but it does look interesting and worth further investigation and discussion within our team.

    I was reading an article the other day about both Basecamp and Backpack, that they should probably be integrated together. Nevertheless, I’m not a user even, but it seems to me that these people (37 signals) have a lot of satisfied and loyal customers.
