Landon Ross

Bric's combination of project management and analytics tools sets it apart,

2018-05-07

The software is very helpful for planning, coordinating, tracking, billing, and reviewing projects.

Pros

The data reports Bric provides, e.g. utilization rates and team members' work-schedules, make important but time-consuming decisions much quicker.

Cons

The website is good, but native desktop and mobile apps would be great.

Bric has helped us plan work, and make sure we have the people in the right place at the right time.

2018-03-12

Pros

Once Bric is setup, planning and tracking time is fast and easy.

Cons

It is really disappointing that they don't have a mobile application, or at least make the web application responsive.

Finally, Freedom from Excel Hell!

2017-09-16

It's easy to use. Time tracking has always been a pain, but Bric is the aspirin.

Pros

Time tracking and project management get much more contextual awareness with Bric!

Cons

There's no mobile app, yet, though I can't wait for Bric to release one.

I use Bric to manage my timesheet! It works well.

2018-03-21

Pros

I have used several different time management systems, and Bric is by far the easiest to use. The timesheet is very clear, and the stopwatch makes it easy to log time.

Cons

I wish I got notifications when the timer was running too long, or if I hadn't tracked time in a while.

I use Bric to track time on my projects

2018-03-13

Pros

Bric is a great system for tracking time.

Cons

I wish I could manage tasks directly from the timesheet. Right now you have to go to a project to update tasks.

Makes my workday much easier and I can see our progress on a more concrete level.

2018-03-12

Pros

Having multiple projects and multiple employees split among those projects makes it hard to track.

Cons

Other than that, it took a little bit to get used to the interface and how things work.

2017-08-22

Tracking time and managing project workload

Pros

The layout is easy to navigate and see the overall time for other projects

Cons

That you can't enter time ahead for days in the future - I need to account for meetings on a weekly basis while maintaining my hours

Really easy to use, does the basics very well

2017-08-24

Enabled us to better understand our resource capacity and more accurately estimate and track against our projects.

Pros

Bric has a really straightforward interface and worked how I would expect a resource planning app to work which isn't the case with a lot of other software out there.

Cons

The reporting side of things still needs a bit of work - but I understand that a lot of this functionality is on their roadmap and due to be implemented shortly.

2018-03-12

Pros

Bric has great customer support. I chatted with Hunter during setup, and he gave me tips to help me make the most of the Bric system.

Cons

I wish Bric had notifications to remind people to track time. I also wish there was one page where I could see all of my tasks

Built-in intelligence to project management!

2016-09-30

It takes the best project management tools--specifically staff utilization / optimization--and adds intelligence.

Pros

The brains behind the UI.

Cons

This is being a bit picky, but I am not big on the graphics / design of the UI...it works really well, though I am just used to simple Linux-type UIs--utilitarian.

I recommend Bric to all my agency clients

2016-10-03

Bric helps keep my clients focused on leading their teams and growing their business, not planning and tracking time. Plus, Bric analyzes past projects to automatically make project plans more accurate.

Pros

Again, Bric automatically analyzes past projects to make project plans more accurate.

Cons

None so far.

Time management software is a must for professional services

2016-09-09

Bric is a great SaaS application for doing so. The interface is clean, easy to understand and requires very little training for those managing their business.

Pros

Easy of use, clean interface.

Cons

However, if you are a sub-group in a large organization that needs to do better at tracking time, this would work for you.

Great insights from data, great features and always adding new ones

2017-10-17

Bric has given us significant intelligence about our productivity and workforce, and allowed us to better understand how to be more profitable.

Pros

Most time-tracking platforms give minimal information, or required pulling the data out to try to get intelligence from it.

Cons

Sometimes slightly slow to load (though that might be specific to us because we have one of the largest # of projects on the system of any user).
