Bridge makes coaching your team easier… even if they’re spread out in multiple offices. Just like in a fancy call center, you can listen in on phone calls and coach in ‘whisper mode.’ You can even barge in if the conversation gets out of hand. Heck, why stop there?

Forget the 20-digit pins, conference ID’s, and ‘stating your name’ to join the call. Bridge actually makes conference calling enjoyable. Schedule a call, and Bridge will call the participants for you. Share your screen, record the call, mute participants, and lock the conference for privacy. It’s the way conference calling always should have been.
Track employees’ time and view their screenshots with Bridge’s Time Clock Pro. There is nothing for you to install, and your remote or local employees can stop the screenshot monitoring themselves simply by clocking out. View the reports online using your computer or tablet, and then send the time clock information to your payroll system. You will be able to see exactly what your employees have worked on, how much time and money was spent on each task, and what was on their computer monitors. Know for certain that you are paying for actual work, not for time spent on social media or shopping.
