Synchro PRO Software


 

Synchro PRO is a construction project management system designed for firms handling complex residential, industrial, commercial and public works projects.

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.

This software 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 scenarios that might disrupt the project. Synchro PRO can integrate with other standard planning and scheduling software as well.

An on-premise system for Windows computers, Synchro PRO is available as both a monthly subscription and as a perpetual license, with additional fees for cloud hosting and support. It is available in over 40 countries.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Synchro PRO is a very powerful tool, of course that means it takes a powerful person or someone who is willing to learn to implement it. I have had some jump right in and soak up the idea of 4D scheduling and others that it just doesn't click with. Overall, Synchro solves scheduling problems that have existed for years, mainly the idea that CPM schedules become so complex that no one real understands them. Synchro allows the complexity to become visual and the human mind can quickly comprehend complex visuals. So people are now understanding the schedules and are able to take informed action to bring improved results.
