Agency management

Catapult your agency into high-performance mode

Driving agency performance and profitability requires accurate, real-time insight – unattainable when you have information across different systems and spreadsheets, or stuck in people’s heads.

Synergist's intelligent system brings all your information into one place, giving you clear visibility of how your agency is performing, which areas are the most profitable and how well you’re utilising resources, so you can make real-time decisions that take your agency forward.

Get full visibility of your agency’s pipeline

Instantly see a live forecast of prospect and client revenue, margin, billings and profit, and track performance against targets.

Filter by probability, client handler, source, type, sector, status, and more. Manage opportunities easily with CRM, notes, attachments, activities and automated reminders to win more new business, and see which types of work have capacity. For example, if design have some free time coming up, sales can look to fill this gap with new work.  See more on Dashboards. and New business pipeline tracking.

We have our finger on the pulse. We can see any changes coming and don’t get caught by surprise. It’s saving us so much time too – where one particular report used to take us three days to create, now it takes me two hours!”

Operations Director, Something Big


Capacity and Loading
Bar

Understand capacity and utilisation across your agency

View availability, demand and utilisation by team, skill or individual over the coming days, weeks and months.

Quickly spot under-utilisation or over-demand to make informed training, recruitment and freelancer-hiring decisions.

Perform “what if” analysis to see how winning some prospective business would impact on your resource and capacity.  See more on Capacity Planning.

Accurate revenue and cost forecasts

Instantly see how much is invoiced versus that planned for a job. Billing plans let you invoice staged payments based on set dates or project milestones and forecast billings and profit by month.

Purchase and expense management tools give you control over costs and cash flow forecasts. Plus, the advanced revenue recognition feature allows you to adjust the amount of turnover or profit you recognise to sit in line with work in progress (WIP). See more on Billing and Purchasing.

“With Synergist I know what’s going on in every job, and as it’s happening. Costs are captured real-time. So there are no surprises. My month-end has been cut in half. If Synergist was somehow taken away from us, it would be worse than having a fire."
