Alternative to Basecamp: Hibox

Basecamp is a popular alternative for teams looking for a task and project management solution.  We think Basecamp is one of the better solutions on the market. However, when compared to Hibox there are a few key features missing in Basecamp such as videoconferencing, multiple languages and an artificial intelligence powered virtual assistant that can really help improve the way your team communicates and collaborates together.

And on top of that did we mention that Hibox is half the cost of Basecamp at $4.0 per user per month? Now that’s something we think both your finance team and management can get behind 🙂

Check out our summary below to see a detailed comparison between Hibox and Basecamp.
