TL:DR – The Bridgit Bench and BuildingConnected integration allows contractors to automate the transfer of key project data from BuildingConnected into Bridgit Bench. Our BuildingConnected integration helps to centralize project pipeline tracking from bid to project completion. Other benefits of this integration include:
- Eliminate duplicate data entry and human error
- Better teamwork with a centralized, comprehensive view of project and resource demands
- Optimized project forecasts provide a clear view of the impact to your resource strategy
Accurately forecasting the resource demand for construction projects can be a challenging task at the very least. Projects and their respective allocations are managed in a workforce planning solution, whereas project opportunities are tracked in a CRM tool. This increases the likelihood of having different data from one system to the next, which can result in contractors not fully understanding the impact their project opportunities will have on the larger workforce strategy.
On the flip side, well-integrated systems allow for a seamless flow of project data from software to software. Bridgit has built a number of integrations with the leading solutions being leveraged by the construction industry. For more information about our integration options, check out this page.
BuildingConnected is one of the leading business applications being used in construction. It helps contractors track their upcoming project opportunities and bids.
