Break it down:

Does your team work with lots of files?

Samepage works with more cloud file services than Basecamp. With Samepage you can link Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, Microsoft OneDrive and Egnyte. With Basecamp you can link Google Drive. And if you work with local files, Samepage has versioning and direct file editing so you always have the most up-to-date version on Samepage.

Maybe your team is distributed or virtual?

Samepage and Basecamp both have ways for teams to keep in touch. With Basecamp your conversations are grouped into pings and campfires, away from your content. With Samepage we have chat & video chat embedded everywhere - right next to your documents and pages, so you can keep in touch with your team no matter where they are.
