"Synergist is great for time based businesses where you need to track and manage your teams"

Comments: Productivity, reporting, profitability, better management of people and time.

Pros: It has enabled my agency to understand the hours spent on client work, helped manage utilisation and productivity of the agency. It has helped agency profitability. It has helped us manage over servicing and most importantly where our team are being overworked or working too many hours.

Cons: Nothing really in the cons - other than some people might find it labour intensive on top of the client work they are doing.

"Synergist provides our small Engineering company with all the functionality we need to be successful"

Comments: Better business management, reporting and trustworthy information.

Pros: Ease of use and functionality to adapt to any type of business requirement. We have 2 departments that both use Synergist differently for their needs, it is adaptable and flexible. Reporting is brilliant and again is an adaptable dependent on the needs. Synergist has allowed us to scrap unreliable excel spreadsheets and allows ONE centre for updating the whole company. Synergist has proven easy to learn also for our new starters who average about a week to understand the basics and roughly a month to get to a "superuser" level.

Cons: Running reports takes a little time to get your head round how the data interacts but once you do its great.

"Overall, pleased with the software as it is a 'whole approach in one place' ."

Comments: One central area for the life of the project to be able to budget for future, fee quote more accurately for the future, track the life of the project and analyse data at the end of the project more efficiently.

Pros: One central place for the life of the project i.e. from fee quote to completion, cutting down on previous needs for quite a few spreadsheets !

Cons: Data Reviewer reporting isn't as simple as we would like it.
We would like more things bespoking to our company.
Calendar bookings if far too complicated for our needs.

Vendor Response

by Synergist Express on 26/10/2017

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Debra. Great to hear you're pleased with the system and have benefited from the efficiencies of bringing all aspects of your projects into one central place. The Data Viewer has proved to be a very popular reporting tool and we receive many requests from customers looking for more advanced options within this to create more complex reports. To deliver a solution to the overwhelming majority of these enhancement requests, we've had to enhance the Data Viewer with additional options whilst maintaining the drag and drop style approach. I take on board your feedback on this and will pass this to the product development team. The same applies to the calendar bookings tool which has been developed to meet the needs of most project based businesses. If your calendaring needs are particularly simple then its functionality may exceed your current needs. Many Thanks - Nick Lane - Commercial Director

"Great product with fantastic suppport"

Comments: Improvements in agency reporting leading to better and more profitable customer relationships.

Pros: Reporting and analysis of projects and clients is second to none. We have improved client and agency profitability and process by a significant margin using Synergist.

Cons: UI could be better, but does not distract greatly from solutions overall performance. I believe a new version out soon should provide a better experience.

"A great piece of software ideal for any consultancy who want to plan and track clients projects!"

Comments: Helps to track all of our projects commercially and plan resource/workload.

Pros: Great at managing everything from initial enquiry, estimating, project & company commercials and tracking live projects for all your clients.

Cons: It's only as good as the information and effort you put into it. Detailed training and customisation is required prior to using in anger, but once set up correctly is fantastic.
