Project Tracking Software for Marketing Department

We're looking for project tracking/resource management software for a small marketing department. What do you use, or what do you know of that's good? Alternately, what might we want to be sure to avoid?

We're a mixed environment (Mac/PC) in house creative shop. We've tried MS Project (WAY more than we needed), Excel Spreadsheets (a bit less than we needed), a custom built solution in FileMaker Pro (this also ended up being a little bit more than we needed and was a little too intrusive which led to early abandonment).
I'm looking at Basecamp
which looks very interesting to me. Has anybody worked with this at all? Does it have any way to track the number of hours spent on a project? How is archival data handled. Everything I see in the screen shots seems to be focused on keeping people informed while a project is in production.
Is there anything similar or different that we should be looking at?
