6 reasons to get excited about the Precon Module in Bridgit Bench
Bridgit Bench is the only workforce planning platform with functionality to support preconstruction team planning. We have open feedback loops with our customers and use their feedback to improve our software and the experience our users have.
“Customer success has been key in the role and value of the tool. With other technologies we’ve deployed, we’ve experienced the product side evaporating after implementation is done. The constant touchpoint and engagement with our teams [from Bridgit] is as important, if not more important, than the tool itself. The human element is present and that’s been apparent throughout the entire process. They’ve been able to get teams deployed and engaged quickly.” - Andy Sparapani, Project Technology, The Boldt Company
Preconstruction tends to look a little different from one project to the next. There isn't a one-size-fits-all approach that works for everyone. That's why we've built in flexible, customizable task management tools in Bridgit Bench.
Just head over to the precon tab and click to add a task. You'll then be able to give it a name (ex. Conceptual Design, Schematic Design, etc.), select your target dates, and hit save. Your precon tasks will then display as a cascade so your team can clearly visualize where precon planning is at and what's next. What's even better is that the people assigned to your precon tasks will be linked until you say otherwise. That means when a date needs to shift, the people assigned to the task shift with it. No manual updating required.
If creating preconstruction tasks looks easy, wait until you get a look at how easy it is to assign your people.
Beside your list of precon tasks in your projects, you'll have the ability to display a roster of available team members. From there, you can simply drag-and-drop them directly onto the desired task and Bridgit Bench will take care of the rest.
If you know the roles you'll need but aren't ready to assign people yet, you can create unfilled roles on the tasks and use our Smart Suggestions to fill them later. What's a Smart Suggestion? Bridgit Bench will give you a short list of team members that match the role and availability you need. Pretty easy, right?
One of the big problems with spreadsheet-driven workforce planning is the constant back and forth between people and projects and trying to understand who's working on what, when, and where they're needed next.
With Bridgit Bench, you'll have full visibility of your precon team's availability, current tasks, and future assignments. This kind of clarity makes it easy to communicate capacity with business development to fill potential gaps in the pipeline.
By consolidating your entire workforce into one platform, your leadership team will also have better visibility of the project pipeline and how projects are progressing through preconstruction and construction.
With Bridgit Bench, not only will you have visibility into where and what your precon team is working on, but you'll also gain accurate utilization reporting to help ensure your team is using their time effectively, or if they're being spread too thin and need additional support.
In one single view in Bridgit Bench, you can display every project and respective task your team members are working on, as well as their current and upcoming utilization rates.
Our integration specialist will set you up with a custom integration to make sure you're pulling your projects into Bridgit Bench at the right time for your preconstruction team to start planning. We have existing integrations built with some of the leading CRM tools in construction and will work with your team to make sure your information is flowing smoothly.
We also have an Open API with plenty of documentation in case you're looking to build an integration yourself.
