Breeze beats Trello and Basecamp

By Breeze Team on Jan 15

There are many tools for project management, all of them have different goals and functionality. Basically there are two types of software: horizontal and vertical. To quote Joel Spolsky:

Horizontal means that it can be used by people from all walks of life. Word processors and web browsers are horizontal. The software your dentist uses to torture you with drills is vertical.

In that sense the well known Basecamp and Trello tools are horizontal products that can be used for simple task management and organization. On the other hand, Breeze is more vertical product, that is meant for serious project management that allows you to manage scope, cost and time - the main constraints of project management. But still maintaing the simplicity and ease of use.

Breeze was created after I tried to use Trello and Basecamp and they failed solve my problems. They were good, but not good enough. Something was always missing. Breeze is Trello and Basecamp mashup that adds a lot of the missing functionality that is needed for everyday project management activities.

Here is a comparison of the main features of Breeze, Trello and Basecamp.

Breeze Trello Basecamp
Agile principles
Kanban board
Unlimited users
Unlimited projects
Unlimited file storage
Email notifications
iCalendar support
Time tracking

As you can see Breeze is not a feature factory but it adds the subtle things that are really needed.
