What can you use the app for?

BrixHQ.com is designed to help users manage their agile projects. The application provides numerous organizational tools that enable the user to work more efficiently. Users can access their dashboard, which provides a detailed overview of current projects. The web based format allows the user to collaborate with a team regardless of geographic location. The user can also make updates, edits and additions right on the dashboard. The wall feature built into the dashboard allows the user to drag and drop tasks between Agile releases and statuses. Each task is assigned a graphical category representation along with red flags added to overdue tasks. The project manager can gain insight through the Project Velocity feature, which provides detailed tracking and compares the current project progress to expected progress. Gantt charts are included as well as reports that reveal missed deadline statistics and other data. Other management tools offered by Brix include task statuses that can be filtered by month or week and customized reporting.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Brix sticks with a very clean, professional design that features a dramatic dark blue and white color scheme. The overall effect is a stylish, modern appearance that does not hinder the navigability and professional atmosphere offered by the application. The dashboard area is very orderly, with tabs to give the user access to Gantt charts, tasks and graphs. Additional tabs allow the user to jump to specific projects, users and account details.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can create a Brix account by clicking the white “Sign Up” link at the top of the page or the blue and white “Get Started!” button along the lower, right hand side of the homepage. The account creation form requires a first and last name, email address, phone number, company name and a time zone. The bottom half of the form asks the user to provide a username, password, desired subdomain name and how they heard about Brix. The user must also check the box at the bottom of the form to confirm agreement with the Brix terms of service and privacy policy before submitting the form.

What does it cost to use the application?

Brix gives users numerous subscription options that are determined by the number of users on the account. Accounts for three users or less are given free access. Up to 10 users costs around $20 per month or around $175 per year. Accounts for up to 50 users cost approximately $50 per month or around $450 per year. Up to 100 users costs around $100 per month or around $900 per year. Accounts for over 100 users cost around $200 per month or approximately $1,800 per year. Non profit organizations are given free access after supplying documentation that proves their not for profit status.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Brix is a tool for teams handling Agile projects. The user pays based on the number of individuals accessing the account, which allows professionals to purchase a subscription that meets their needs without buying more access than they will use.
