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).

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

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.

Overall: 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: Bric not only helps you plan and price projects better, but when time and money is on your side, you do better work.

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 is Real Time Management.

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.

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

Finally! I have the numbers I need to manage my team.

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.

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

Pros: As a business owner who uses it to track billable hours, it is a great fit. I have both internal and external parties that I share the data with and Bric fills that niche very well. I'm looking forward to see some of the announced but not yet delivered enhancements.

Cons: I had a small struggle setting up the billing initially. I've been told that it is no longer an issue. So outside of that I have no complaints.

Overall: As someone who generally HATES time tracking (and I would super bold the word HATE) but it is an essential part of my business. Bric helps me do my billing. It is hard to say that I love something that helps me accomplish something I don't like to do, but in this case because Bric makes it fast and easy, I love it.

As a nimble small business, I was laughing at a colleague at a large company and their antiquated time accounting tool. Yes, someone who hates time tracking was now looking down at someone and the time tracking tool they were using. I like Bric that much.

Bric has replaced Excel for managing plans and budgets.

Pros: Bric is a definite upgrade from using Excel to keep things on track. I am so glad that we upgraded, I do not think I will go back to spreadsheets for planning ever again.

Cons: I wish Bric had the ability to export project plans to CSV. The software gives me most of the analytics I need, but there are still times I need to do ad hoc analysis.

Overall: The support is great and the app is super simple to use.

Pros: Ease of use (clean/simple UI), cost value, rich functionality & features

Overall: Overall Quality:

I've been using Bric for a few months now and it is easily stands out as the best time tracking tool I've used. Here's why.

Ease of Use:

Bric's ease of use is crucial for employee buy in. All the tools I've worked with previously had considerably higher training time which lead to delayed adoption times and thus bogged down and sometimes inaccurate time accounting for new hires. Bric is so simple that there is no need for training, it's UI is essentially self-explanatory.

Feature & Functionality:

Don't let Bric's simplicity mislead you about Bric's deeper capabilities. Bric's functionality that employs predictive analytics and other data science methods to optimize team hours management is unique in time accounting space as far as I'm aware. Other features like the daily time tracker clock offer simple but effective ways for employees to track their time directly in the app.

Customer Support:

When I did have a question for customer service, the team fixed my problem the same day.

Value for Money:

While much of Bric's value lies in its simplicity, features, and customer support, part of its value to me lies in what the team may implement in the future. If one thing is certain, Bric's features will not stagnate - can't wait to see what comes down the line. Compared with other time tracking tools from the bigger players, Bric is a definite steal at its price and is a tremendous value to my company.

Pros: the time tracking tool has made it easy for our team members to log and record time quickly. This has allowed us to start comparing our planned time vs actual time. Its made a huge impact on how we plan our projects and has made us more efficient. The difference has been amazing.

Cons: Bric still lacks a lot of features and integrations we would like, however they have been extremely upfront with us about their product plan and have taken our feedback very seriously.

Pros: Bric has great support for international users. I manage three teams: The United States, Canada, and in India. Bric works great for that.

Cons: I wish they had a desktop app and reminders. It is too easy to forget to track my time. I wish I got notifications when the timer was running too long, or if I hadn't tracked time in a while. However, over all Bric is a pretty good time system.

Pros: It's intuitive UI and common sense functionality and its ability to capture and report the critical aspects of agency time management and resource planning. I've used other such products and the adoption rate was low, use was confusing and the UI was insulting. BRIC solves the major problems that keep busy agency people from using it. And, I love what they do to get outsourced partners on board for complete hours and resource management for every client. I can already see where I have problems and where I can save money.

Cons: The thing I like least is not knowing about BRIC earlier. Also, no mobile app or calendar integration, but I hear that's coming soon.

Overall: Time management, resource planning, budgeting, cost savings, people savings, client savings

Pros: While looking for a solution for project planning, our company came across Bric. The time saving aspects that really helped us become more efficient as a team is easily worth the price we paid!

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. What amazed me was how easy it was to be able to start using it straight away without using any help or tutorials and others in my team found the same. The other great thing is how helpful and quick to respond the Bric team are and they have a great product roadmap which they are happy for you to input in to.

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.

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

Pros: Ease of setup and use. 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. BRICs UI is on par with the mainstream HR / PM / Enterprise products...I personally am just a little old-school.

Overall: Truly an amazing product. It takes the best project management tools--specifically staff utilization / optimization--and adds intelligence. BRIC learns from past projects, and sets up that 90% solution to a new project, which is easy to refine from there. Any product we used in the past meant we were essentially starting from scratch each time....not with BRIC. Thanks!

Recommendations to other buyers: Cannot hurt to try it out. I believe they are still offering a free 30 days to demo it...full featured. 30-days and I was convinced it is worth sticking with.

Pros: Display. Interface. Efficiency.

The product does exactly what you want it to and allows you to free up your time in some areas (takes work off the plate) and allows you to be more efficient in other areas (freeing up time for solving the actual problems).

Cons: For the most part I think they do a good job adding features to the product and enhancing it in areas that may have room for improvement. Any time I'm on the site I have the chance to quickly talk to someone, so they seem to have a great interest in feedback and do a great job with support.

Overall: It helps me manage my time, and use the time I invest more efficiently which is really important to me.

Pros: The data analytics and the built-in timer.

The data reports Bric provides, e.g. utilization rates and team members' work-schedules, make important but time-consuming decisions much quicker. The other tools I've used do not provide high level reports that are nearly as useful.

And, Bric's timer is simply a better way to record billable hours than manual data entry.

Cons: I'd like more ways to access Bric besides via a browser. The website is good, but native desktop and mobile apps would be great.

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

Pros: Easy of use, clean interface.

Cons: If you are a very large organization, with more complicated PM needs, this might not be ready for you. However, if you are a sub-group in a large organization that needs to do better at tracking time, this would work for you.

Overall: In my line of work, managing resource's time is the key to managing revenues and understanding how to increase revenues.

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. The same can be said for the user's experience in Bric.

Bric appears early in it's lifecycle, so the features are lacking of comparable PM tools, however, that can be spun as a positive, because I personally feel that those more mature PM tools become to complicate and the hurdle to user's using them become high and the system is not used then, which defeats the purpose for using them.

The value for the money is great, the benefit of visibility and reporting on my resource's work far out weighs the monthly cost.

I have not had to use customer service yet.

Bric helps me prioritize my team's time. I love being able to plan and track time in one system.

Pros: The team behind Bric understands creative teams. They created a system for defining resources and letting teams figure out how to accomplish projects. Bric deters micromanaging which is great. I don't have time to define each step of a project, and it's not necessary for my team of experts. In the end, my team loves knowing what needs to get done, how much time they have to do it, and what projects are coming up.

Cons: Bric is a relatively new product. It has a great user experience, and my teams loves it. However, I with they had some more features. I have talked with the team about their product plans and it seems like they are working really hard to improve Bric. So far I have been happy with the new features they have been releasing and will continue to look forward to the new ones in their production schedule.

Overall: This software focuses on managing the entire team's resources.

Their user interface is very intuitive. In addition, they have great documentation and support. Anytime I have a question about something, I can search their website for documentation.

Pros: Bric has an interface that is easy to use. The emails walk you through each step of the startup process making it a breeze.

Cons: I would like to see integration into other software that I use for my business. This would allow me to enter projects once across Bric and my accounting software.

Overall: Bric helps me manage my jobs and make them more profitable.

Easy interface, great time-keeping feature and excellent customer service.

Pros: As a new user I've had little trouble adjusting to this software. My favorite aspect is the simple, yet elegant UI/UX experience. It's straightforward and easy to use - even for someone with multiple projects and clients.

Cons: Would be great to incorporate a desktop widget and mobile app with some core features down the line.

Bric is an outstanding tool --- extremely user friendly, simple, and effective.

Pros: Easy to use features have purpose. Since adopting Bric, my company knows exactly what's going on and I can rest easy. Takes the stress and chaos out of resource management.

Cons: The thing I like least about Brics software is that I didn't adopt earlier. I wish I would have known about it when I first started business.

Very sleek interface and easy to use. The company also had members who were always available.

Pros: Its ease of use is definitely a plus. Overall, the service has saved our company a lot of time when it comes to project management.

Cons: It is always hard to transition from one system to another. I would say the initial training and learning time was the biggest hurdle, but it still was not as bad as I had expected!

As far as the product is concerned, the product is incredibly intuitive. I love being able to immediately see where we can save money and be more efficient. It's as gratifying as popping bubble wrap!

Cons: The on-boarding process

Overall: BRIC is project management on steroids. Their analytics are so easy yet robust. I've recommended BRIC to many of my peers with companies in other industries and they've all been so pleased with how well it molds to their needs.

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

Pros: The software makes it so easy to see where our time is going. It helps us realize what kinds of projects are the most valuable -- and what ones need adjustments to maintain profitability.

Cons: The only thing I want Bric to improve is additional features & functionality -- but I know you're working on them! I just want Bric, 5 years from now, with all the integrations I could ask for. I would also love to see (and they might exist, and I just haven't found them) some best practice documents -- for example, how do people approach non-billable ongoing projects like accounting, and how do you actually get your team to log in and use Bric :)

Bric has given us amazing insight on how our company can increase effectiveness.

Pros: Bric provided a lot of clarity to our projects and how to more effectively complete them.

Overall: We have tried time to track software, project management solutions and so many different ways to improve our companies efficiency. None of those solutions provide what Bric does. They allow us to easily see ways we can better plan our projects. We have only needed to contact customer service one time, and agent replied quickly and helped us through our issue. We will definitely be using Bric from now on.

Recommendations to other buyers: The web based platform is great. Not having to install more software is a bonus!

Pros: Bric was a solution to an immediate problem, I realized my team had gotten to the size I had lost control over my budgets and timelines. Bric helps me manage my team of contractors. It allows me to clearly communicate the amount of time I expect projects to take, and keep me up to date with my budget as my team works. I now have solid management of my developer budget and timelines.

Cons: Recommend making it harder to delete people and data. Perhaps integrate Pomodoro or other time management techniques right into Bric!

Overall: Greatly reduced dev budget planning!

Cons: The UX is a bit clunky. I found the sign-up process to be very smooth, but the project plans can get complicated quickly. I have talked with support, and they were very open to my suggestions.

As more information starts to flow through Bric, the team will be able to add and optimize its predictive features that could make this an even better value for the price.

Comments: In professional services, developing project plans and scheduling hours is a mundane hassle. Being able to start with a base plan each time based on previous outcomes is a huge time saver. Also having the flexibility to understand when your labor resources are available given constraints such as PTO, vacation, etc. is huge value add. Very satisfied with the system so far and can't wait to see how this product continues to grow and add value.
