Yesterday, 37Signals decided to increase their entry-level Basecamp plan from $24 to $49 dollars. ReadWriteWeb quoted:
Basecamp quietly increased its cheapest subscription option from $24 to $49 per month, a move that was criticized by some as as being unfair to small business customers.
In the last few months we have gotten an increasing number of requests from people to migrate from Basecamp and into Zoho Projects. So we created a tool that provides and easy interface for importing your project data from Basecamp into Zoho. Zoho Projects BUMP includes import of projects, tasks, milestones, users and forum posts. This is not something we created just in the spur of the moment yesterday. We had it for a while for those people who asked. Now, since 37Signals decided to increase to increase their prices by so much, we thought this would be a good time to more broadly publicize this. So head over to Zoho Project’s BUMP and get started!
UPDATE: Jason Fried from 37Signals contacted us (see below) to dispute the fact that they increased their plans. I think the way you look at it is very technical and splitting hairs. Yes, their Plus plan is still $49/month as it was before. My memory is not that good, but Jason says it has always been $49, we’ll take his word for that. I think we can all agree on the fact that before, their lowest paid plan was $24, now, their lowest paid plan is $49. Here’s a screenshot of that: http://yfrog.com/c8246p. I think that’s as clear as a price increase will be. It’s like an airline saying: we didn’t increase our prices, but now you have to fly business if you want to fly… but hey, business class prices have been always the same!
