Synergist is the leading job costing and project management system. It helps agencies, consultancies and in-house departments take control of their business.
Drag & Drop Resource Scheduling Tools
No matter how hectic the day becomes, you will always be able to buy some valuable breathing space by being able to view work requests, deadlines and resource instantly – and manage that resource efficiently in an intelligent drag & drop interface.
It’s not long before most agencies out-grow post-it notes and white boards as their traffic management system. But many agencies still maintain a ‘make-do-and-mend’ approach, using ad-hoc systems they’ve developed themselves. These can often prove to be labour intensive, requiring constant manual updates, so perhaps it’s time to look at the more efficient job trafficking solution provided by Synergist.
