Greatly reduced dev budget planning!

Pros

Bric was a solution to an immediate problem, I realized my team had gotten to the size I had lost control over my budgets and timelines. Bric helps me manage my team of contractors. It allows me to clearly communicate the amount of time I expect projects to take, and keep me up to date with my budget as my team works. I now have solid management of my developer budget and timelines.

Cons

Recommend making it harder to delete people and data. Perhaps integrate Pomodoro or other time management techniques right into Bric!

Bric is really easy to use and is one of the most straightforward timekeeping systems for advertising or marketing professionals.

Cons

It would be great to automate certain time that I know will be billed every week, but other than that, it's been relatively easy to input my time.

The customer oriented team behind the product, they implement meaningful features and listen to their customers. They constantly upgrade the product.

Cons

It gets buggy sometimes but they always find a quick and precise solution to the problem. More fresh design and UX upgrade would be handy.

The software is very helpful for planning, coordinating, tracking, billing, and reviewing projects.

Pros

The data analytics and the built-in timer.

The data reports Bric provides, e.g. utilization rates and team members' work-schedules, make important but time-consuming decisions much quicker. The other tools I've used do not provide high level reports that are nearly as useful.

And, Bric's timer is simply a better way to record billable hours than manual data entry.

Cons

I'd like more ways to access Bric besides via a browser. The website is good, but native desktop and mobile apps would be great.

Bric helps me quickly identify which projects are off-track, and compare my original plan to what is actually happening. I appreciate having my project budget right on the page so I know my expenses and profits.

Cons

The UX is a bit clunky. I found the sign-up process to be very smooth, but the project plans can get complicated quickly. I have talked with support, and they were very open to my suggestions.

We implemented Bric to help understand the amount of time our marketing activities were taking. This helps us keep the workload balance equal between team members. The financial report is helpful for understanding our costs.

Lacking in amount of features compared to other applications that do similiar tracking and planning. No integrations

Pros

Bric has an interface that is easy to use. The emails walk you through each step of the startup process making it a breeze.

Cons

I would like to see integration into other software that I use for my business. This would allow me to enter projects once across Bric and my accounting software.

I have used several different time management systems, and Bric is by far the easiest to use. The timesheet is very clear, and the stopwatch makes it easy to log time.

Cons

I wish they had a desktop app and reminders. It is too easy to forget to track my time. I wish I got notifications when the timer was running too long, or if I hadn't tracked time in a while. However, over all Bric is a pretty good time system.

Bric helps my managers understand the profitability of projects. Too often project managers and salespeople lose sight of what drives profitability. Bric brings finances back into focus.

They have great support documents, but they need to update their videos and screenshots. It seems like they have been releasing features faster than their support team can update the documentation.

Bric is a definite upgrade from using Excel to keep things on track. I am so glad that we upgraded, I do not think I will go back to spreadsheets for planning ever again.

Cons

I wish Bric had the ability to export project plans to CSV. The software gives me most of the analytics I need, but there are still times I need to do ad hoc analysis.
