BRIC

Time tracking for professional services teams

4.9/5 (76 reviews)

BRIC Overview

Bric is a time tracking solution that typically serves teams of graphic designers, software developers, architects, and engineers to help maximize their time and skills. The platform allows users to understand who is working on what, how long a project will take, and the capacity for new projects. Bric analyzes timesheets using machine learning and applies the data to generate more accurate project plans.

Users can build project plans from templates or have Bric recommend one by automatically finding patterns in the team's timesheets. During the planning stage, users can make adjustments to project plans, and get alerts if any individuals are overscheduled or working multiple projects. The platform remembers all billable rates by the project, and automatically calculates what clients should be charged compared to their budget.

Managers and admins are able to view timesheets by project and person, as well as edit time entries, and add comments. Additional to timesheets, users can track time using the navigation bar, and start and stop time tracking using the stopwatch feature. Bric allows teams to compare planned and track time side-by-side, and keep notes to remember what the time was spent on.

Project management tools allow users to know at-a-glance which projects are nearing completion, which are behind schedule, and which are on track to generate a profit. Bric highlights any projects that are over or under 20% off planned hours, and provides a summary of projects that active, in planning, utilization rate, and more. Users can also view scheduled projects by calendar and analyze the team's capacity week-by-week, and in hours and dollars.

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. The dashboards and reports from Bric are a cut above the others we've seen. Most impressive, though, is the responsiveness of Grant and the Bric team. Based on suggestions they've built out an impressive array of features, and we're continually asked how they can improve the UI, UX, and functionality of the platform. This attention to what customers really want is in stark contrast to nearly any other SaaS product we've used.

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).

I recommend Bric to all my agency clients

I recommend Bric to all my agency clients.

For 26 years I ran an Advertising Agency. I sold that business, and now I consult and coach agency owners on how to do the same. To do this Partners need to work on their business; not in it.

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. We all know the importance of reveiwing past projects to plan future projects, but never do it. Bric does it automatically.

Pros

Again, Bric automatically analyzes past projects to make project plans more accurate. That's the key. It's something agencies always vow to do , but never get it done. Better accuracy = better profitability.

Cons

None so far.

Our employees loving using Bric

Pros

Bric makes logging tracked time for various project incredibly easy, and it's very helpful for sketching out how much time per week various team members should ostensibly be spending on each project and client. But more than anything, I like how the Bric team is so quick to hop on the phone to chat over any functionality issues I may be having. They're great about showing me new ways to use their product, and their product roadmap is very transparent.

Cons

I know that they're working on this, but we tend to work on monthly retainers more than weekly hours or sprints, so we'd love to be able to very easily see a monthly hours breakdown rather than weekly.

Bric gives time tracking a new purpose. It helps me avoid over or under scheduling my team.

Pros

There are useful analytics everywhere. I love knowing my capacity for work, creating plans, and monitoring progress. Plus my team loves the timesheets. They find it very straight forward.

Cons

I wish Bric had a mobile app so that my team could track time when in the field. Also, it would be great if Bric would send reminders if the stopwatch is left running. I have talked with the team and they assure me that it is something they are working on.

My company is growing really fast. Using Bric has helped me keep up with who is working on what, and my financials.

Pros

I love the analytics. I have been a big fan of the Financial Report, and now it is even better with support for multiple contract types.

Cons

The sign-up process could be improved. It took 5 minutes to enter all the required information before I could plan my first project.
