LONDON, ENGLAND, March 22, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Skylight's collection of project management and collaboration features has consistently grown since the company's recent launch of the software-as-a-service toolset for small business users. Today, Skylight is pleased to announce compatibility with 37signals' Basecamp platform, and the ability to import Basecamp data directly into Skylight.
"We're committed to consistently delivering value to our users by adding functionality, and providing a comprehensive and affordable platform for managing the entire business," said Taimur Khan, Director of Skylight Interactive. "Our clients who had been using Basecamp had been relying on Basecamp add-ons to accomplish several tasks, which increased their overall costs, took extra time, and added an unnecessary learning curve. Our new import feature makes the transition simpler, and now those users who have grown out of Basecamp can more easily enjoy the extended functionality of Skylight."
Current users of Basecamp will be able to try out Skylight with their actual Basecamp data. The new feature comes in the form of a Basecamp API link, which allows all contacts, projects, tasks, and milestones to be imported directly into Skylight. "Our goal is to constantly improve Skylight with new features and integration," said Khan. "We've had requests from many of our users who have been trying to move data from Basecamp to Skylight, and our new API link now provides that capability." says Jamie Mill Co-founder of Skylightit.com.
Skylight users asking for the Basecamp import capability appreciate the extended functionalities of the Skylight package, which gives small businesses a very rich toolset that would otherwise be expensive and would lack the common interface and integration afforded by Skylight. Picking up where Basecamp leaves off, Skylight incorporates high-end features at low-end prices, including resource scheduling, CRM, project and stage financials, as well as tight integration and synchronization with Google Docs. "Our Google Docs integration was another feature we provided in response to customer demand," added Khan. "This feature allows users to access Google Docs directly from Skylight, and to relate each document to a specific project." By offering the feature-rich platform as a software-as-a-service, Skylight Interactive has been able to keep prices affordable for small to midsize businesses, while still bringing out new features on a regular basis. Users are able to access all of the many features of Skylight for one low price--a pricing model that is very attractive compared to many other project management systems.
Users report that Skylight is remarkably easy to use, with a single intuitive interface that provides easy access to all features. Users of the latest version will also find some extra new features that allows for greater compatibility with Basecamp data, including new task lists that are similar to Basecamp's "Ta da" list, and an improved messages interface for collaborative discussions.
