What’s new in Bridgit Bench – A look back at summer 2022

Top contractors rely on Bridgit Bench to keep their workforce planning efficient and effective.

With over 24 customer-influenced updates released over the summer, here’s a quick look at all the biggest new features and functionality added to Bridgit Bench in the last 3 months.

Groups

Groups in Bridgit Bench help get your entire organization using the same workforce planning tool, but with the flexibility to organize, segment, and filter your people and projects by office or region with just a few clicks. All the transparency you need to plan effectively, with none of the clutter. Groups are also reflected in your smart suggestions when allocating team members, making your allocation process even faster.

Have team members that only need to focus on a single office? Our new global filter helps do exactly that, but can also provide leadership and executives a bird’s eye view of the entire company.

Our new map page provides a geographical view of all your people and projects.

You can toggle the allocation view to see the respective distances of anyone assigned to the project, or you can apply people, project, and group filters to get a closer look.

Quick Assign

We added a new Quick Assign page to highlight unfilled roles and help allocate your team members, fast.

Quick Assign is simple and efficient. All your unfilled roles on the left, all your available people on the right. To add someone to a role, simply drag, drop, and confirm and that change will be reflected throughout Bench.
