Bridgit Bench will help Kajima Building & Design Group, ranked among the top global contractors, organize processes and understand staffing needs.
TORONTO, CANADA, FEBRUARY 17, 2021 – Bridgit, a leading construction resource management technology company, today announced that Kajima Building & Design Group (KBD Group) has selected Bridgit Bench as its sole workforce planning solution.
KBD Group designs and constructs manufacturing, distribution and supply chain, food and beverage, mission critical, and interior projects across the USA. KBD Group is a leading ENR 400 global contractor, widely known for its innovation and fully-integrated capabilities. With offices strategically located across major cities in the USA, KBD Group selected Bridgit’s workforce intelligence solution to deliver real-time, cloud-based project and people insights.
“Bridgit Bench has provided clarity and organization to our project staffing process. Prior to Bridgit Bench, we would use a variety of methods to organize our staffing process for project teams. They all worked for a day or at that moment, but those methods lacked the ability to share, update, look ahead, and maintain,” said Jim Goodwin, Senior Vice President Construction at Kajima Building & Design Group. “With Bridgit Bench, we have a real-time availability that stays current. As new projects come-up it easily helps us build a project team template that our management group can see. We use this template to show upcoming staffing needs that need to be staffed or assigned.”
Previously using individual spreadsheets, KBD Group’s resource planning was hard to maintain and required hours of updating critical information. KBD Group values the workforce forecasting, utilization reporting, and phase-based project planning in Bridgit Bench.
“Keeping a current status and building up potential project team requirements has greatly helped our organization grow and better understand our staffing needs. Bridgit Bench has greatly helped us stay organized with current project team assignments and understand upcoming project assignment requirements,” said Goodwin. “We also appreciate the sharing and collaboration that comes with a focused web and mobile-based application like this. We highly recommend it for other leading general contractors.”
“We are proud that KBD Group chose to partner with Bridgit to streamline and optimize its construction resource management needs,” said Sean Erjavec, Chief Revenue Officer at Bridgit. “Bridgit Bench is simplifying the workforce planning process for the team at KBD Group, helping them save time with smart suggestions and an easy-to-use interface. We’re looking forward to working closely with KBD Group and helping them further accelerate their growth going into this year.”
