With over 24 customer-influenced updates released over the summer, here’s a quick look at all the biggest new features and functionality added to Bridgit Bench in the last 3 months.
Groups help get your entire organization using the same workforce planning tool, but with the flexibility to organize, segment, and filter your people and projects by office or region with just a couple of clicks. All the transparency you need to plan effectively, with none of the clutter. Groups are also reflected in your smart suggestions when allocating team members, making your allocation process even faster.
At Bridgit, we work with our customers and move fast to deliver meaningful features to further streamline the workforce planning process. So fast that it’s sometimes difficult to keep up. Here’s a look at some of the best things we introduced to Bridgit Bench in the first half of 2022.
Track certifications with the Certification Tracking in Bridgit Bench. General contractors can create a master list of certifications and set warning date ranges. General contractors can then add a certification to a person’s profile and set the expiration date for their certification. They’ll see a warning as the certification is approaching expiration.
Bridgit is introducing Scenario Planning, and more robust People and Project filters to its Forecasting page. General contractors will be able to see the impact of their project pursuits on workforce capacity and workforce productivity. General contractors will be able to filter the Strategic Workforce Plan Report, and the Utilization Rate Chart on any People or Project field, to get better insights into their workforce management.
Here’s a look back at all the Bridgit Bench updates you may have missed this quarter. Bridgit Bench now allows you to add real-time updates, communicate role assignments, expand your forecasting capabilities, and add attachments to people profiles. With Smart Suggestions, get recommendations on role allocations. Our revamped integration with Procore makes it easier to transfer more data from Procore into Bridgit Bench.
Bridgit Bench now will provide you smarter suggestions for any open roles on projects. It will take into account various fields, including historical project information, and use that information to give you a list of available people that would be the best fit for the role. As you build project history in Bridgit Bench, the platform will become more intelligent, and show you ever better suggestions.
The new Bridgit Bench Assignment Communication feature lets you keep your team up-to-date on project assignments directly from the platform. Simply assign or change project roles as needed, then send out an email to your team members letting them know where they need to be, and when they need to be there.
With Project Notes, Bridgit Bench helps you centralize your people and project information, without leaving any contextual insights behind. Notify other stakeholders of project progress, including any changes or delays.
With the new Strategic Workforce Plan Report, Bridgit Bench helps you make better staffing decisions. The report shows you an accurate image of workforce capacity and project demand for both projects and project opportunities, allowing you to filter by role to get granular insights on your workforce needs.
