Synchro PRO is a hybrid construction project management solution designed for businesses in the contruction industry that handle complex residential, industrial, commercial and public works projects. The solution can either be deployed on-premise or hosted in the cloud.

Unique to Synchro PRO is its “4D” project scheduling visualization capability, which allows users to import their computer-assisted design files into the system in order to have a visual, time-lapsed representation of what the project should look like at any given point in its life cycle.

Synchro PRO also features a “clash” reporting capability that automatically detects potential construction complications in a project, while its “what-if” analysis functionality lets users plan for potential risks and delays. Additionally, Synchro PRO supports integration with various planning and scheduling systems.

Services are offered on a monthly suscription basis. Pereptual license is also offered by the solution for a one-time fee. Support is available via phone and email.

Synchro 3D scheduling

Pros

The ability to tie 3D models to a schedule and create a time lapse video is priceless

Cons

Time consuming to create videos and keep updated.

Synchro Pro is the one of the best software for 4D BIM Model! Great tool visualize project schedules

Pros

Synchro Pro allows users to create project schedules. External schedules can be imported in and could be tied to the 3D models. This can show the sequence of work in an animation or PDF format. The editing options for the final output are very helpful, and quality of the output is very high too.

Cons

Syncing in data and updating files can be frustrating. Model data representation can also get tedious at times to handle

Greatly facilitated the visualization of a construction project sequence of tasks.

Pros

The biggest Pro is that it's the most visual scheduling software out there for construction. It utilizes 3D models to communicate the sequencing of activities in a project, and it's fairly simple to adjust the activities themselves, their duration, and how they are shown on the screen.

Cons

Interoperability is probably the only issue I've encountered. Since you require data from a model to operate in Synchro (or you at least want it to make use of its full range of features) you sometimes can have issues with importing models.

Great for visualizing a schedule

Pros

My team uses this software to create a visual 4D Construction Schedule. The process can be tedious and take time, but the result is valuable. The software can also be used to check how "good" a schedule is and forecast daily demands based on your model.

Cons

Synchro has a lot of tools, so learning the software can become overwhelming. Also, there are not very many tutorials on youtube. However, once a workflow is established, it becomes easier.

Easy 4D modeling

I would recommend this software.

Pros

I used it for school project but it is really great. It is easy to learn and implement it. It has lots of tutorial videos provided by Synchro.

Cons

I felt little difficulty in changing schedules but I think it was because I am new to this software.

Build 3D to 4D

Worth trying and learning about this software.

Pros

It provides more foresight of the management tasks. It has potential to find out clashes between two tasks.

Cons

It don't have any cons but it is a new software so it requires training which takes time. But customer support is still fast.

4D Planning

Only tried on trial version. I would appreciate if Full fledged Education version is available to institutes like us.

Pros

Importing schedule data from all common sources including P6, Asta, MS Project, and Excel.
Importing 3D models and equipment models of any complexity and file format
Linking 3D/BIM model data to schedule data in a fast, efficient manner to create accurate and clear 4D construction sequences

Cons

Not yet tried to Conduct a 4D-Based Progress Review to validate your construction schedule with all project participants
Work with resource-loaded schedules to manage costs, labor and material and produce earned value and quantity tracking plots alongside the 4D schedule and construction sequence.

Life After SureTrak - Windows 10 caused our Company to Look for new Scheduling Softwore

Going to keep using the product since Suretrak doesn't work and hope I can figure out the tips and tricks to make this my daily driver scheduling software.

Pros

Synchro Pro was free for us to trial and test out. The problem was we had upgraded to new Windows 10 Surfaces and none of them would allow Suretrak to install. Synchro Pro has tons of options and allows you numerous scheduling tricks and methods.

Cons

Learning curve from MS Project, P6, or Suretrak.
Does not allow importing Suretrak schedules to convert to Synchro Pro.
Hard to figure out options and customization.
Searching for help or tutorials is hard from the menu items

I am an engineer in the construction industry and have used Synchro for scheduling.

Critical path method scheduling, resource allocation and 4D Scheduling

Pros

I like the ease of use and simple user interface. The filters and shortcuts make normal functions easier and more streamlined. The system doesn't give multiple options for simple tasks. It gives the basic options and allows for simply use. The benefit of this software over similar software such as Primavera P6, is the simplistic nature. Primavera uses hundreds of options, where as Synchro keeps it to the point.

Cons

The thing I like least about the software is the architecture of the programming. My computer would not run the software due to an integrated graphics card versus a dedicated card. Once I received a new computer from our IT team, the software worked great, but requiring a dedicated graphics card can be prohibitive.

Good construction planning tools

Virtual construction simulation can help project planner see how perfect construction process he planned. It is very advantage to know before and correct the process. It helps saving time and cost of fixing problem while construction. It helps creating more understanding between owners, contractors, consultants and sub contractors

Market share in THAILAND.

1.Nature of THAILAND construction According construction project management in THAILAND now is not useful 3D model that effect to make resources model. 2.Price Price of Pro 4D base per year that big problem because NAVIS Work is cheaper price per licence then buy subscription

Hello Phaisan, Synchro PRO and Navisworks are very different products. Synchro PRO is a 4D Scheduling system while Navis is a design review tool- you cannot schedule, edit or optimize your plan in Navis.

Improving Our Industry: The Next Level of Project Coordination

Synchro's 4D Construction Management Software is the premiere product currently out on the marketplace. It's extremely simple to use, and brings an entirely new level to preconstruction planning and coordination. Imagine being able to visually review, and constantly improve your project plan 5, 10, or 100 times prior to breaking ground so that when you actually do break ground, there are ultimately no surprises' that's exactly what makes Synchro's 4D tool so invaluable to any construction project, of any size. The primary benefits of implementing Synchro's 4D software are: 1) Visually review your plan, and communicate that plan clearly and quickly, 2) Resolve conflicts before construction, 3) Highly engaged and focused team delivery, 4) Measurable time and cost savings (Improve your bottom line!), and 5) Improved quality, safety, and predictability for your project(s). Synchro's 4D software seamlessly integrates with other industry scheduling software, taking their biggest weakness ' a true CPM engine geared towards risk management reporting over the life cycle of a project ' and making it a strength. Don't take our word for it - Try it for yourself today, and experience first-hand the improved project delivery results that, if you're like us here at AEC Controls, you won't be able to live without on any of your future projects.

Smooth synchronizing at home and in my office without any

I use Syncro to sync my phone both at home and in my office. Both runs wonderful and without any attention from me. I have a Samsung Note 3 and Windows 8.1 pro. It is wonderful and no trouble. I have had this system running every day for about two years now. There was some issues in the system when I started. Syncro support fixed it at once and showed a superb service. I had the IT boss in my office to fix may IP address at the phone. Then I went home and fixed it to the same address at home. I can leave both home and office knowing that my phone calendar and contact list is up to date. I can do changes during my traveling and know that when I look at my computer either at home or in my office, I know that the information in my computer also is up to date. Syncro Pro runs instantly and demand very little resources. If you use MS Outlook and want to stay synchronized on your phone, I recommend Syncro Pro.

Synchro Provides Visibility & Accountability

Our clients have commented on the visibility Synchro provides them especially identifying construction clashes not usually recognised through traditional planning packages as Planners can overlook certain logic links that 'allow' the construction clash to occur. Accountability plays a major part in any construction project and Synchro provides the vehicle to which responsible managers can identify problem areas long before an event is to be undertaken. Take for instance the construction and welding of steel structure above workers installing mechanical equipment several floors below. This activity cannot (and should not) be constrained through logic links in traditional schedules but can be identified in Synchro allowing for either protection or rescheduling of the work. The simplicity and user friendliness of the software functionality provides outstanding value to any construction project.
