Super simple to get going; much less complicated than other apps

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!

Great for Freelance time tracking

Pros

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.

Best customer support I have experienced so far when it comes to online services.

Pros

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.

Bric's combination of project management and analytics tools sets it apart,

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 keep my projects and team organized.

Pros

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.

Bric helps me keep my event team focused.

Pros

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.

Cons

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

Bric helps me manage resources throughout my business

Bric helps me manage my jobs and make them more profitable.

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.

Favorite project management software so far, on professional and personal projects

Pros

I personally like the streamlined and simplistic interface. My projects are complicated enough I don't need the software getting in the way.

Cons

It's mobile website. Coming from an Android user, sometimes I encounter weird little bugs on the site like only being able to scroll down a line or two.

I use Bric to manage my timesheet! It works well.

Pros

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.

Great customer Service and price for a startup

Pros

Price & customer service. Grant is great to work with and always makes sure I know about the newest updates.

Cons

Not a software issue but a management issue on my end not being able to get my subcontracters to use it.

Easy to use, powerful, great support.

Pros

The application is really well designed and super easy to use. Customer support has been amazingly responsive and helpful. The pricing is very reasonable.

There are some more things that we wish the software would do. Support was helpful and the software is being continuously improved.

Automatically Calculating Project Profitability

Pros

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.

Cons

They need a mobile app. My team spends a lot of time on the move, and a mobile app would be a big help.

Monitoring my team's progress against project budgets

Pros

First, the timesheets are easy to use. Second, project plans can be created and modified quickly. Finally, Bric makes it really easy to compare my team's performance to my original plan and budget.

Cons

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 has replaced Excel for managing plans and budgets.

Pros

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.

Easy interface, great time-keeping feature and excellent customer service.

Pros

As a new user I've had little trouble adjusting to this software. My favorite aspect is the simple, yet elegant UI/UX experience. It's straightforward and easy to use - even for someone with multiple projects and clients.

Cons

Would be great to incorporate a desktop widget and mobile app with some core features down the line.

I use Bric to track time on my projects

Pros

Bric is a great system for tracking time. I am not sure about the other capabilities of the system, but I love using it for tracking time.

Cons

I wish I could manage tasks directly from the timesheet. Right now you have to go to a project to update tasks.

Bric helps me sell with confidence

Pros

I love knowing my team's capacity for work and schedule of tasks. This allows me to schedule new projects without over committing.

Cons

It would be great if Bric could automatically notify my team when a project goes active. Another great thing would be an integration with Slack.

Great tool for capacity planning!

Pros

We are finally able to see what is our capacity in the future and where are all our employees allocated at the moment.

Cons

There could be more integrations with third-party software (f.e. Toggl / Tempo - time tracking ) and extensions.

Bric Helps Me Balance Capacity vs. Profitability

Pros

I really like having projects financials automatically update as I plan projects helps me balance my team's capacity vs. the project's profitability. I have made a lot of use of Bric's ability to support both full-time employees and contractors.

Cons

Their videos are really out dated. It appears that a lot of features have been released since they made their marketing and support videos.
