The rapid adoption of digital tools across industries during the pandemic has boosted the fortunes of a Kitchener, Ont., startup that sells software to builders.

Bridgit Inc. saw use of its online construction work force and resource planning software, Bridgit Bench, jump by 72 per cent in the second quarter among existing customers compared with the first quarter, chief executive and co-founder Mallorie Brodie said.

“As soon as COVID-19 hit, construction companies were having changes in their schedules, changes in personnel and that impacted their overall resource planning efforts, which ultimately led to increasing usage of our product,” Ms. Brodie said.
