We showcase seven agencies and the work they do, and find out from their MDs what effect Synergist has had for them.
CleverCherry are a Birmingham-based full-service agency with a digital and creative heritage.
"We no longer have to rely on gut instinct and experience alone. It's there in black & white. Synergist gives me the reports I need".
"It makes decision-making easier and more transparent".
"Synergist has helped us be more scalable. People are more empowered now. Decisions that used to drop relentlessly into my lap every day are now taking place with no fuss".
"It's educating the team. They make better decisions now.
"It promotes self-education. Team members are much more aware now of what costs go into a job".
London digital marketing agency, now acquired by Pulse.
"Accessing information, such as staff utilisation, is now done at the push of a button. It's powerful".
"Synergist lets us make informed decisions. We are given the facts".
"We felt sure that we'd been over-servicing a particular client, but with our old system we couldn't prove it. It was obvious we needed to know profitability by client, by project and by project type, plus connect with our financials".
"Synergist allows us to scale. It also helps us know what sort of projects we can take on. It tells us our current capacity as a business".
Dinosaur are a Manchester-based integrated communications agency.
"There comes a time in every agency’s life when you stand back and have to decide where you want to take it".
"We decided to get serious. Preparing the agency for growth, getting the basics right..."
"...And getting a serious system to drive through the efficiencies, give you what you need and be able to grow with you".
"These were long-term decisions. Getting Synergist was a key part of it, and I’m glad we did it".
RLH are a London-based B2B agency.
"One issue was getting our account management teams to see it as a tool to help them and support them, not a finance tool to beat people with! Once they see the power of what it does for them, they get it".
"We now have data and reporting at our fingertips which help us make better and more informed decisions".
"Our client procurement teams are also happy. That's because we are transparent and so we're seen to be trustworthy".
"Our agency directors are happy, as they can instantly review any project and monitor the success of our teams. So it's a win-win for all".
