Build from Analytics or Templates
Bric learns as you complete projects and track time. When you create project plans from Analytics, Bric will recommend more accurate project plans. With templates you can quickly build project plans and keep things consistent.
As you plan and make adjustments Bric will alert you to people working multiple projects or are over scheduled.
Compare Budgets and Billable Rates.
Bric remembers your billable rates — even by the project. As you plan Bric will calculate what you should charge, and compare it to your client’s budget.
Identify Off-Track Projects.
Bric highlights projects that are ±20% off planned hours. View your off-track projects right from the Bric Dashboard, and click through to view all of your projects sort by % off track, % completed, or due date.
Track Progress Side-by-Side with Plans
View your original estimate, update your current plan, and monitor work as it is completed — all from your project plan.
Monitor Costs and Profits.
View your project financials from the project plan. Know your estimated costs and profits, and track them as work is completed.
Visualize the flow of tasks.
As work is completed tasks move from ToDo to Doing, and finally to Done. Tasks can also move from person to person as needed.
Flags, Colors, and Alerts.
Organize your tasks by color, use Flags and Exclamations to signal issues, and get alerts as tasks approach due dates.
Communicate expectations by adding details to tasks. Add a paragraph or two explaining the goal, add a checklist of sub-tasks, and assign the task a due date. This will keep projects moving without a hitch.
Each person has access to their timesheets with projects they are assigned. They can scroll through weeks, take notes, and enter time as HH:MM, 00.00 or with Bric’s stopwatch.
Nav Bar Timer.
In addition to their timesheet, people can track time using in Bric’s navigation bar. It has all the functions of the Timesheet page. Enter time or start and stop Bric’s stopwatch to keep track of time. Don’t worry about walking away or closing your computer — our servers will make sure to keep the time.
Managers and Admins can review timesheets by project and person, edit time entries, and add comments. In addition, Admins can lock timesheets with Bric’s preset. Management Control help with reviews, and ensuring that timesheets are up to date.
Managers and Admins can export timesheets by project and by person to a .CSV file. Exports are great for creating invoices, running payroll, and custom reports.
