Synergize Works Well, but Support is OUTSTANDING!!

Very capable, very responsive company that will partner with you and do what it takes to provide automation for your document handling needs. Highly recommended!

Pros

We use Synergize to capture, organize and store our volumes of transportation documents. The folks at Microdea created and implemented a solution that was customized to our unique needs, and it normally works flawlessly. When there are hiccups (usually due to external issues beyond their control) Microdea always resolves same-day, and often same-hour. We deal with many vendors, and without a doubt, Microdea delivers some of the best, if not THE best customer service.

Cons

We are very happy with the software, and have no complaints. We did have some difficulty using their document viewer ("Synergize Viewer") over our RDS environment using certain hardware. There was a rendering issue that we could not fix and we eventually had to purchase new equipment in order to properly use the viewer.

Frustrating Implementation

The overall experience has been poor. We have been in the implementation phase with Synergize for almost 3 years. During this time the implementer has been directly responsible for 3 system outages outside of Synergize. We are nearing the end and hopeful to have a working product soon.

Pros

We like the idea of being able to scan in documents and have them automatically connect to orders with in TMW.

Cons

The setup. Our environment is not a cookie cutter environment. We use published applications through Citrix and this has given the implementer a very hard time.

Synergize for Accounts Payable

We are beginning to realize some of the efficiency gains by using Synergize, especially in the document look up and determining its status area. Our overall experience has been positive. The staff and support are very helpful and new features/functionality can be easily added. My only advice would be to plan your processes in detail up front to save on implementation and process change costs.

Pros

In my opinion, Synergize offers us integration with our multiple platforms and makes our data easily accessible. In particular, we can access an invoice and find out its current status in our payment process, read any notes we have about it and follow up with the appropriate person if needed. It also increases the speed at which we process invoices as it has the ability to automate a portion of our payment process. Lastly, we can also extract data for our internal reports.

Cons

Although this is a great software, it does require a lot of IT resources up front and some IT ongoing. A lot of this can be alleviated by thoroughly understanding how you want your process to flow during the design phase as the software has many features.

Excellent Customer Support

We use it primarily for document storage an workflow, both of which it excels in.

Pros

Synergize is a great system, made even better by their customer service and support that ensure that when you need them, they are there quickly, consistently, and reliably. Someone asked what I think about it.. I don't think about it. It is one of the packages that I never have to worry about because if my users have issues, support is just a phone or email away.

Cons

In thinking about the over 10 years we have used them, I can't think of anything that I don't like about it. We are fully integrated into their system with our inhouse system and its a great relationship.

Reasons for Choosing Synergize

Customer service, ease of use, and the recommendation of our peers.
