Assigning the right people, made easy.

Smart Suggestions for project teams

Assembling great project teams is tough

Choosing the right person for your projects is no easy feat. For contractors mapping out an entire pipeline, there are typically six or seven million moving parts to factor in, approximately. Making the right decision requires wading through endless data points, searching for the right experience, availability, and (oh yeah) someone who lives nearby.

With so many things to consider, it’s no wonder contractors will allocate the first available name that comes to mind.

Smart Suggestions help find the right person, fast

Bridgit Bench arms you with Smart Suggestions for every project role. When allocating someone to an unfilled role in Bench, Smart Suggestions will consider titles and project histories to give you a shortlist of available team members.

Smart Suggestions will also tell you how far from the project they live to help reduce commute times. You can even draw a radius around your project and only assign people within your decided range.

What about certifications? What about skill sets? No sweat. Applying additional people filters to narrow your search is as easy as pie.

What about project histories, though?

Great question. Regarding project histories, your Smart Suggestions will look at the project you’re allocating someone to and compare select custom fields against all of the projects your team members have previously worked on.

The more fields that match, the better suited the team member is for the role.

The best part is that because project histories are being considered, Smart Suggestions will only continue to get smarter as time passes and more projects are added to Bench.

Smarter Bench = Smarter Suggestions.

The ball is still in your court, though

We’ll use data and historical context to give you a short list to choose from, but who you ultimately choose for your project teams is still up to you. If you know the person you’re after, you can type their name into the search bar to allocate them quickly.

Do Smart Suggestions work for hourly project roles?

In short, yes. You’ll still be given a short list of team members based on the automatic filters applied (group, title, availability), but instead of combining project histories, Bench will display and sort your people by availability.
