I have been looking for a Project Management system to support collaboration across three partners in two locations for our startup. I'm specifically looking for perspective on the Basecamp and FogBugz web based apps.
We need to manage all the business tasks necessary to build and launch a large user generated content site. We are working with an experienced development team who have their own management system in place for the wireframe to coding to testing cycle so we're less focused on features supporting code processes.
In prior jobs, we've used MS Project and have found it too complex and cumbersome. On the other end of the spectrum, we've used simple Excel spreadsheets for tracking - these are OK but don't support strong collaboration and planning.
We've come across Basecamp and it appears to be easy to use and to support collaboration across partners and locations. I've also heard some positive comments on FogBugz but have the sense that is more oriented towards managing code related processes.
