Briq has defined a brand new space that is changing the way construction companies are managing their businesses.

Who we are:

Briq is the first data analytics platform built specifically for construction professionals.

Who we are NOT:

We are not a solution for your Accounting, ERP, or Project Management needs.

What we do:

By automating repeatable tasks, connecting your disparate software, and analyzing historical data, we drive insight for construction companies to be smarter and more efficient.

Who we do it for:

We serve any and all kinds of construction professionals, from small,
local specialty contractors to large GC’s.

The benefit:

With data-driven forecasts, automated workflows, and interconnected systems, you have better visibility into your business. Combined with Briq’s deep industry experience, companies can easily identify where to save on overhead, minimize risk, and drive more profitable outcomes into the future.

Our Story:

Briq CEO, Bassem Hamdy and CRO, Ron Goldshmidt, are childhood best friends who built successful careers in both construction and finance.
For 20 years, Bassem has worked to build many of the most popular tech products in construction, some of which you probably use today.
Ron, on the other hand, led a successful career in finance as the Head of Emerging Markets for RBC Bank. For years, Bassem told Ron he had a vision for a more unified construction data platform. Three major ideas stuck out in their minds:

Can I use Briq with my current accounting system?

Briq uses a technology that allows it to connect with any application, so we are truly a platform-agnostic solution. We work with all the major accounting platforms, but Briq can even consume data from unstructured data sources such as contracts, invoices, expense reports, and other PDFs.

What is the difference between Briq and reports from my accounting system?

Briq is more than a reporting platform. While Briq does allow you to visualize your data, the real power lies in being able to forecast your cashflow, labor, materials, cost at completion, and more. The other key difference between Briq and your accounting system is that Briq allows you to use data from any system– accounting, project management, HR, estimating, and more. A report from your accounting or project management system is much more limited in accuracy and really only represents about 20% of the data in your business, while Briq allows you to tap into 95% of your corporate data.

What is the level of effort I should expect with Briq?

We're a unique team built specifically to help you get value from the Briq platform on Day 1 of your implementation. Our leadership has over 100 years of construction experience as well as a team of PhDs, data scientists, and data engineers. As such, we allow you to focus on running your business while our Customer Data Science team handles the heavy lifting. We tell you what data you need, how to get it, and where to put it.
