New Highrise feature: Streamlined “edit contact” flow

“The number one reason we love Basecamp: it’s a powerful, flexible, and extensible application that is actually EASY. Initially, when I decided to implement Basecamp for our project management needs, I was somewhat concerned that our less ‘computer literate’ clients may have reservations about jumping out of their e-mail accounts and into a program like Basecamp. This concern turned out to be completely bogus as to this day we haven’t had a single client that hasn’t been able to instantly understand, utilize, and harness the power of Basecamp.”
Mobile productivity with Basecamp and Highrise on the iPhone
“I use Highrise and Basecamp from 37signals to manage the majority of my practice, and Safari dances through both of these sites with ease, allowing me to review and edit information from anywhere. I feel the iPhone – and specifically its web features – have finally allowed me to gain some mobile productivity.”
