Finance: Gain live visibility

No FD wants to be steering their business in the dark.

The alternative is live visibility which gives a complete business dashboard of key performance indicators and issues in real-time, enabling you to make decisions based on one consistent version of the facts pulled together from all across your company.

One complete system

How do you choose a project-led management system?

One core need is the ability to see everything linked together: projects, clients, resources, the pipeline - everything. Plus, you need to be able to track the impact each element has on overall profitability.

You could get individual systems for each separate element, but this leaves you with lots of systems working in silos. You don’t get an overall view and you have to input the same information into numerous systems. Plus, you pay more for the privilege as the cost of each system soon racks up. Another option is an ERP, but as well as vastly increased costs, the complexity is often overwhelming and not needed.

Synergist gives you one view of everything so you easily track jobs and overall agency health at a glance and on a daily basis.

 What FDs say about saving time 

Easy-to-view profitability

 

Being able to view the financial health of a job, a client or a time frame at a glance is invaluable. With Synergist, you don’t need to wait until month end, or the next board meeting to get an understanding of which jobs are under or, perhaps more importantly, over. The Synergist dashboard allows you to report on what matters to you at a glance. So you can easily and quickly see what figures are most important to you.

Increased team commercial awareness

 

When everybody across the business understands the commercial implications of their actions, finances start to strengthen. But often the team are laser-focused on their day-to-day remit. With Synergist, everyone has visibility of the jobs. So it’s easy for the whole company to see the good and the bad. This encourages everyone to think about the financial implications of their actions.
