Improve workforce strategies with Bridgit Bench and Azure AD Integration

TL:DR – The Bridgit Bench and Azure AD integration allows contractors to transfer key workforce data from Azure AD into Bridgit Bench. You can then better plan your team utilization with the most up-to-date information. The benefits of this integration include:

  • Proactive planning for new team members
  • Automate changes to promoted team member titles and salary
  • Improved collaboration 

Construction projects have hundreds of moving parts. All of which need to be coordinated effectively to deliver quality work on time and within budget. When you consider that a contractor will have multiple projects on the go at any given time, it’s easy to see just how quickly managing a workforce effectively can become a challenge. A challenge that becomes amplified when workforce data is scattered across multiple software systems or spreadsheets.

Azure AD is one of the leading HR applications being used in the construction industry. It helps to centralize and track workforce data including all people, contract information, start dates, salaries, certifications, and other important information. Bridgit Bench has built a low-code/no-code integration with Azure AD which helps automate the transfer of information to help create a winning workforce strategy. 

With the Bridgit Bench and Azure AD integration, you can quickly import your employee data to plan resource allocations and optimize utilization. You’ll also have comprehensive employee data syncing between both tools so you can create a strategic recruitment process, and better understand how project demand is impacting your workforce utilization.

The benefits of integrating your resource planning with Azure AD

The Bridgit Bench and Azure AD integration helps track changes to your workforce strategy. By integrating with Azure AD, Bridgit Bench customers are able to sync and track key people data like new hire start dates, termination dates, employee skill sets, and more.

Some other key benefits of integrating Bridgit Bench with Azure AD include:

1. GET OFF TO A QUICK START

Have a new team member starting? No problem. Our integration allows you to pull employee start dates into Bridgit Bench so you can start planning their first project without the risk of allocating them before they’ve officially started.

2. EASY PROMOTION UPDATES

Beyond tracking skill sets and certifications, the Bridgit Bench and Azure AD integration will also sync employee titles and salaries. That means as your key players move up the company ladder, Bridgit Bench will capture new titles and salary changes automatically.

3. IMPROVED COLLABORATION

By reducing the amount of non-productive work, you’re better able to foster meaningful, collaborative discussions about workforce strategy, backed by data, with your HR team.
