Grant Stanley, CEOSuccess requires time management. You need to maximize employee utilization—while walking the line between boredom and burnout.

Get Bric is designed to help you maximize your employee utilization. Leveraging machine learning and analytics to help management understand every aspect of time utilization. Bric helps teams—large and small— maximize their time and talents.
Led by CEO Grant Stanley, Bric was founded with a passion for data analytics and professional services. Prior to joining Bric, Stanley spent eight years as the CEO of CAN, a company that provides predictive analytics to Fortune 500 companies.
His work at CAN has inspired his vision for Bric. Stanley states, “While there were several tools designed to digitize analog processes—like client communications and deadlines— traditional solutions provided little to no information about my team’s time utilization.” Stanley joined Bric to solve this problem.
Professional service companies have a unique challenge. They sell time. Stanley, “Each hour your inventory— of hours and skills—is being depleted, making it difficult to accurately gauge if there is enough work and if it’s being assigned to the right employee. Managers have to find the balance between ‘too much’ and ‘too little work’ among team members. Bric does this with data analytics and automation.”
Bric helps your sales team and Partners know what to sell. Everyone gets up-to-date capacity reports telling them who is available for new projects. These reports allow for the most efficient process of managing your most important commodity—time.
