Bridgit Bench Overview

What is Bridgit Bench?

Bridgit Bench is a resource planning solution for businesses within the construction industry which allows users to manage remote workforces, plan construction projects, track availability of employees, assign tasks, gather actionable insights, and more. The cloud-based system can be used to streamline collaboration and helps teams to work flexibly in order to manage changing project needs.

With Bridgit Bench businesses are able to track projects and tasks, and view how changes can impact productivity and performance. The workforce optimization tools allow users to easily view each employee’s past, current, and upcoming workload in order to evenly distribute tasks and ensure that there are no overlaps or clashes. Managers can gain an at-a-glance view of each team member’s current tasks and see who is over-allocated and who has availability for upcoming projects. The Gantt chart functionality facilitates the scheduling of tasks and projects, and users can create custom allocations based on labor requirements.

Bridgit Bench provides users with real-time insight in the form of dashboards and visual reports. Businesses can track allocations, resource statuses, utilization of resources, and more, through visual graphs and reports, and daily allocation breakdowns help managers to gather actionable insights based on who is over or under allocated.

Bridgit - 6 Months In

We are solving the replacement of a customized excel sheet which was prone to errors and clunky user input.

Great product

This software enables us to see an Enterprise Level view of staffing across all our projects and all our workgroups. It also let's us filter to see specific roles, projects or open positions as needed. We are better able to collaborate across workgroups on building solid teams.

Business problem was having a platform to collaborate on resource allocation, and not relying on one individual to quarter back in their head.

We are solving the replacement of a customized excel sheet which was prone to errors and clunky user input.

Pros

The software has greatly improved our visualization and real time updating of staffing changes which are common in our industry.

Cons

I wish there was a better way to export single page reports and executive summary information that looks at teams and project staffing.

Business problem was having a platform to collaborate on resource allocation, and not relying on one individual to quarter back in their head.

Pros

Love that the product is designed for construction. Provides a solution for a process that most construction companies manage from a dysfunctional spreadsheets or inside the mind of the operations manager.

Cons

Editing allocations is a bit tedious. Once you have the hang of it, it works. A bit of learning curve though.
Would love to be able to drag and drop resources around.

Would love to potentially expand to include craft resources. Current functionality and pricing model would need to be adjusted to make this feasible.
