The solution to a big problem

The team at Bridgit Solutions has been great. They are top notch, and really strive to make the best product. They do this by listening and asking for feedback, and then improving the product.

Pros

The ability to recommend a team member for an upcoming project.

Cons

We could utilize some additional dashboards.

Perfect Human Capital/Resource Planning tool for a mid to large size General Contractor

Excellent. Customer service has been fast and effective. They don't give away this software, but it's well worth the yearly cost.

Pros

This software is focused on short and long term planning / assignments for anyone you might have for your project teams. It's NOT focused on timecards or hourly planning as most resource tools are that are out there. It helps with long term planning and helping to determine future hiring needs or where you might have a surplus of talent. It's very intuitive to use and you will quickly ditch the spreadsheet for this task. It's also customizable, so depending on your company and your needs you are able to add/include and track the information that is most useful to you and your organization.

Cons

I honestly don't have any complaints. Bridgit Bench has been adding more features, reports to the software, which have addressed any areas of shortcomings it had at initial rollout. It's cloud based which is perfect, but in rare occasions, there is a glitch/bug. But that has been very short lived.

Reasons for Switching to Bridgit Bench

Checked all the boxes for me and what I needed. Extremely intuitive. Customer service was excellent and didn't feel I was getting the high pressure sales pitch. The folks I worked with seemed genuinely interested in solving a problem, not selling software. I only wish I had the software writing acumen to develop this first!!!

Bridgit Bench - Best Tool in the Technology Tool Box.

Overall it has been a wonderful addition to our technology tool box. We need to track over a hundred projects at any point in time and all of the resources that go with them, Bridgit allows us to make sure we have the right people in the right place at the right time.

Pros

The product is very intuitive. I love that you can view your projects as both a list and as a Gantt chart and that you can deep dive into the details of the project by clicking on the project name from any view. Being able to see the dates of each project phase by hovering over the Gantt bar is a huge benefit because I can go from project to project without leaving the Gantt view.

Cons

I like that we can identify each project phase by date and when building out the phases it automatically starts the next phase with the date following the last phase but editing the phases when you have 8 or more phases like we do is a big chore. It would be a huge time savings if one phase date could be edited and have all subsequent phases adjust accordingly, or alternatively, if you could drag phase dates on the Gantt chart.

Reasons for Choosing Bridgit Bench

Better functionality, better visuals and more intuitive.

Bridgit Bench Review

Bridgit Bench has been a perfect fit. We were previously using a combination of MS Project and google sheets to track and project manpower. This was extremely cumbersome and time consuming. It also made it so the manpower gantt chart was only updated once a week so we never had real time data to project.

Pros

I like the simplicity of the software. We were immediately able to start using it without a bunch of training and trying to figure our way around the site

Cons

I wish there were a few more permission groups. It would be nice for people to only be able to see projects they were assigned to. It's important for us to be able to get feedback from our project managers on the project timeline but we dont need them to have access to all projects.

Reasons for Choosing Bridgit Bench

Bench was a much better product. It is simple to use and is excellent at what it does.

Reasons for Switching to Bridgit Bench

The combination of google sheets and ms project was too cumbersome

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.

Pros

The software meets all our project staffing needs very well. Doesn't try to do too much.

Cons

Has a few less customization features than we would like.

Reasons for Choosing Bridgit Bench

Bridget Bench is very simple, user friendly and easy to use. It has great visualization tools, great customer service and responsiveness and a great price.

Reasons for Switching to Bridgit Bench

We didn't have a good way to collaborate across workgroups on upcoming project staffing needs. Each group was keeping their own Smartsheets which were set up differently and shared with each other for viewing purposes only. We needed a tool that could manage everything in one place and would address current staffing scenarios as well as projected workload scenarios and future staffing needs.
