There's simply no substitute for experience
We've spent the last 18 years creating and developing Synergist, a complete project management and job costing solution. Ideal for project-based businesses with teams of 10 - 600 who manage multiple projects simultaneously, Synergist supports the entire project lifestyle with a number of stand-out features across three key areas: Project Planning and Forecasting, Resource and Project Management and Project Costing and Reporting. You can learn more about Synergist’s specific features on our features pages or you can book a one-to-one online demo, which will focus on the areas that matter to you.
Our features have been meticulously developed out of a deep understand of the complications and frustrations faced when running a project-based business. Managing Director, Finance Director, Project Manager, Client Services Director or Project Team Member, what everyone really wants is for the project to run smoothly, to be delivered on time and to budget. People want to spend their time working on successful projects using their talents but all-to-often projects become pressured, messy and overwhelming. Which often takes away a lot of the joy and forces skilled teams to spend too much time fire -fighting and over-servicing. Synergist has been carefully crafted to support companies and individuals in their roles, allowing business owners and leaders to enjoy visibility across the business and project managers and client services to enjoy the same visibility within projects. Teams members enjoy clear direction and priorities. Ultimately, Synergist supports teams in becoming more efficient, saving time, making fact-based decisions, gaining project and business visibility and ultimately running successful projects.
We’re a driven and experienced team who focus entirely on our client’s needs. As such, we’re constantly evolving our system to take advantage of new technology and to solve emerging issues faced by project-based businesses. Our goal is to help our clients thrive at their current size and through times of growth.
