When the COVID-19 virus settled in, Bridgit, the Waterloo Region maker of project management software for the construction industry, noticed its product was getting a lot more traction – try 72 per cent more from one quarter to the next. Existing customers were suddenly boosting their usage and new clients were signing aboard.

“We saw customers start using some of the customizable and configurable fields for tracking COVID-specific information,” explains Bridgit CEO and co-founder Mallorie Brodie.

“Maybe it was, you know, someone [on a construction site] needed to be off for two weeks as they quarantined, or maybe a project was being delayed, or there was going to be some scheduling changes because of COVID.”
