What is BRIDGR ?
BRIDGR is a platform that helps experts find and collaborate with small and medium-sized manufacturing companies to solve their operational challenges. Our goal is to offer you missions in line with your skills and personality.
What is a BRIDGR Expert?
Totally Independent or just side-worker
Independent consultants are often confronted with two major problems: finding contracts on a sustainable basis and getting paid on time. Also, several experts are hesitant to be freelancers because of all the implied administrative modalities. A BRIDGR expert is a consultant with at least two years experience willing to work on manufacturing projects according to her/his availabilities and interests. A BRIDGR expert can be an independent worker or a full/part time employee looking for some side work.
Technology Provider :
At BRIDGR, technology is important
Looking for new customers? New markets? Competition is tough and companies no longer want to listen to your pitches? Want to do more promotion but you have neither the budget for nor the time? BRIDGR understands you!
Today, the market is flooded with new technologies that offer more or less the same services. This makes manufacturers skeptical about offers. BRIDGR allows you to extend your reach and visibility thanks to its platform with the manufacturers.

How does BRIDGR work?
Our way is simple: we are present during all the stages of your mission. We take care of the first contact with the companies in order to identify their challenges and potential axes of development. According to their aspirations, we look for an expert capable of solving their problem(s), understand their goals and help them grow.
Our online management tool, the BRIDGR platform, helps you succeed by facilitating your exchanges with the client, but also with our team. We promote collaborative work, sharing and communication to achieve your mission in optimal conditions.
The stages of a BRIDGR project
1- Problem Identification:
Our team meets the manufacturer to make an initial inventory of its needs. In addition to establishing this first contact, we conduct a preliminary diagnosis to collect performance data and identify an action plan that fits its reality. If the company so wishes, we can make a thorough diagnosis of its operations before calling on you – the expert – to help it solve the identified problems.
3- Payment by installments:
At the beginning of the mission, the team formed by the company and the expert defines the project payment terms. This is done online, in a simple and fast way, thanks to our project management platform. BRIDGR ensures that the compensation process runs smoothly.
2/ Connection with the company:
The first step allowed us to reveal the skills required by the expert. We then propose a first selection of experts’ profiles to the company. Within this selection, each expert is distinguished by his personal qualities and his professional aspirations. During this stage, we promote the best match between experts’ profiles and companies.
4- Project implementation:
We encourage optimal collaboration between you and the company via the BRIDGR platform. Our goal is to create a group dynamic between the company, yourself and our team, based on communication and sharing. We provide you with the BRIDGR platform which offers various project management tools in order to optimize your productivity.

The calendar is shared between you and the client. Anyone can add or change appointments and deadlines for each step of the project. A timer tool is also available to help calculate your work time for each task.
In order to optimize the communication between you and the client, the BRIDGR platform allows both parties to talk via an online chat. The platform also provides you with a dedicated section to share documents.
