Let's take a look at the features that give Rodeo the advantage.

Simple and intuitive interface 

Tired of clunky and confusing UIs? Unlike Basecamp, Rodeo's easy-to-navigate and professional-looking interface is designed to eliminate clutter and increase team collaboration.

Robust financial management functionalities

Basecamp falls short of supporting the financial side of projects, which is something Rodeo excels at. Rodeo users can build budgets, send project estimates, and create invoices within the platform to ensure they’re properly compensated for their work.

Build a budget for your projects

Built-in time tracking

Rodeo’s native time-tracking feature helps you understand how much time your team is spending on each task. Plus, time tracked through Rodeo syncs with your project budget, allowing you to easily keep an eye on your spending.

Detailed reports on your projects

Rodeo specializes in turning your project data into detailed reports that can help you deliver projects on time and within budget. Because all of the features in Rodeo are connected, the reports feature allows you to keep track of current progress, employee productivity, and compare closed projects for better budgeting and forecasting.

Don't just take our word for it:

“The interface looks neat and everything is straightforward. Whenever a new member joins the team, I only need to show them how it works once and that’s it.”

Sophie van der Togt
Head of Account, Dorst & Lesser

“Rodeo helped us make our projects about 30% more profitable. Once we started using the time tracker, we had an accurate overview of how much time team members really needed to complete their projects.”

Axell Avalon-van Staveren
Brand Director, JaxX

Project management made easy.

There are two ways to track time in Rodeo. You can either start the stopwatch on your dashboard when you begin a task or add a timecard after the fact.

Yes. Once a task is completed, Rodeo will prompt you to fill out a time card associated with that task. This helps keep your budget updated and allows Rodeo to generate accurate reports.

What information is displayed on invoices sent through Rodeo?

Rodeo lets you customize the information you want to show on invoices. Choose whether to display or hide itemized details, rates, taxes, discounts, and more. You can also personalize the invoice description and edit the terms of conditions.
