An efficient program for businesses of all sizes

Overall very happy.

PROS

Before I set up my business I had discussed program integration with my accountant in order to create a seemless process for both parties. This allows my tracking to be transparent which in turn allows the accounting side to work in unison without fault. This is what I like most about Synergy. No fuss.

CONS

As it is a one-stop shop for a business, from workflow management to business management, it can take some getting used to as there are quite a few moving pieces. But once you get a hang of it you can't really do without it.

Reason for choosing Synergy

Its integration with Xero and because my accountant seemed to understand it aswell.

A solid option for your growing business

Synergy allows us to track our time more effectively and handle client requests with greater speed.

PROS

The ability to see exactly what time and bills are assigned to each invoice is amazing, and really helped the architects understand what my accounting department does.

CONS

The integration with QuickBooks in the US needs some work. This remains a pain point for us. Bills have to be entered twice, and that's time we can't use for something better.

Reason for choosing Synergy

A sleek look and feel made the architects happy to use it, which is half the battle!

Reasons for switching to Synergy

A clunky user interface made working in the program difficult, and sunsetting support just put a deadline on the process.

Suggested Timesheet Improvements

PROS

It is useful to track work and assess workload of the team.

CONS

- The timer option in the time sheets has the potential to be much more useful. The timer could directly fill in the time sheet, in addition to what is already in that task to that dat. Then the timer would be a much more useful function (at least the option for this to be the case).- In the time sheets, there should be the option to copy and paste tasks (not the times) from previous weeks, to save having to fill it in each week when the project is ongoing. There should also be the option to copy and paste the tasks on the same week to be able to make minor changes, so one does not need to fill it in from the top down each time. These can be applied to both the time sheets and the expenses.

Highly Recommend

PROS

Synergy is very user friendly, the ease of the financial management of projects is a very positive feature. The dashboard is informative at a glance and the analytics side of the program is useful for Directors and Administrators.

CONS

There isn't currently a function to include billing entities under a parent company, however I am hoping this is on the list for a future Synergy roll out.

Reason for choosing Synergy

We did a cost comparison as we were approached by Deltek and as a result of being long time synergy users, we decided to stay. We are very happy we did.

"Real Time" Accurate Project Data

We can schedule and revenue in one system, slowly ridding the business of unnecessary spreadsheets. We can constantly improve and deepen our use of the system AND are supported to do so by our customer support team.

PROS

We love that TS Synchs with our Financial System, this saves the business countless hours in double handling, so much more efficient and accurate. We love the UI, it's so user friendly and also that it's possible to have multiple screens open at once.

CONS

Reporting is fiddly, but then it is in every system that is managing so much data. Takes time to get it right but, will all the fantastic real time support, this is completely achievable.

Reason for choosing Synergy

Local, specifically designed for A&E, customer at the centre of the product, continuously improving.

Reasons for switching to Synergy

Too expensive, too difficult to navigate, not suitable for SME, no local support.
