Texas’ Premier Builder, Rogers-O’Brien Construction (RO), leverages Bridgit Bench to maximize the resource planning of 300 employees.
TORONTO, CANADA, FEBRUARY 10, 2021 – Bridgit, a global leader in construction workforce management solutions, is pleased to share that Rogers-O’Brien Construction (RO) has leveraged Bridgit Bench to streamline and optimize the management of its growing workforce across four offices in Austin, Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio. In 2020, RO was a top 10 usage account in Bridgit Bench.
Since 1969, RO has established itself as a leading general contractor in Texas by providing a wide range of preconstruction and construction management services. The company currently ranks no. 169 on the Engineering News Record (ENR) list of leading national contractors and has ranked on this list for over 20 years. The company’s controlled growth approach has resulted in over $2 billion in construction volume over the past five years.
“Innovation and technology play an important role in construction when it comes to improving organizational excellence. By digitally transforming how we manage our workforce planning, we knew we would see a decrease in manual workflows and an increase in time saved,” said Todd Wynne, Chief Innovation Officer at RO. “Our investment in Bridgit Bench has helped us gain a high-level understanding of our resourcing needs, forecast future project needs and speed up resource planning meetings through a single construction workforce intelligence solution.”
Before Bridgit Bench, the RO team was relying on manual spreadsheets to manage their resource plan. Now, their resource plan is streamlined, digital and integrated with their existing CRM solution. The company also heavily uses Bridgit Bench features like Gantt views, multi-account views and iOS and Android mobile apps.
“We are honored that Rogers-O’Brien, a leader in both construction and innovation, chose to partner with Bridgit to optimize its construction resource management,” said Sean Erjavec, Chief Revenue Officer at Bridgit.
“The Rogers-O’Brien team truly believes in a better way to do things – both in terms of the building lifecycle and construction technology. We’re proud to be working closely with the team at RO and excited to help them further transform their workforce in 2021 and beyond,” said Mallorie Brodie, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder at Bridgit.
