TeamworkPM Review – Is TeamworkPM Better Than Basecamp?
What is TeamWorkPM?
TeamworkPM is an online project management software that help small businesses outsource more effectively. It basically allows for better communication amongst team members and allows you to be more organized and focus on the right tasks.
TeamworkPM is a low-cost alternative to expensive, complicated project management software like Microsoft Project.
Is TeamworkPM a Good Basecamp Alternative?
To be honest, I currently use Basecamp for my team. Part of the reason is it's just what we settled into. And now that I have a large team (I manage approximately 13 different workers across 3 continents) it's just a pain to switch. I have used TeamworkPM in the past, and I actually prefer it.
Even though Basecamp is the defacto leader in the online project management world, it has some serious limitations. The most annoying of which is the inability to effectively set priorities. Basecamp sets priorities by dragging-and-dropping to the top of the task list. So it has no way of being able to view all the most important (high priority) tasks across different projects.

Do You Need TeamworkPM?
For most freelancer and solo entrepreneurs (or micro entrepreneurs as i like to call them), the hardest part of running a business is scaling up and hiring new staff – even part-time. But with great online tools like Elance and Odesk, it's becoming much easier. However, working across multiple time zones can be a challenge. That's why I started using TeamWorkPM (and eventually Basecamp.
In order to run a real business, you need to have more people working for you. And TeamworkPM cna help make sure you're using their time effectively. If you're new to the idea of outsourcing, I'd recommend you pick up a bookby Tim Ferriss called the 4 Hour Work Week. It will change your perspective on this.
