    An efficient program for businesses of all sizes

    Reviewed on 11/07/2023

    Overall very happy.

    Overall very happy.

    Pros

    Before I set up my business I had discussed program integration with my accountant in order to create a seemless process for both parties. This allows my tracking to be transparent which in turn allows the accounting side to work in unison without fault. This is what I like most about Synergy. No fuss.

    Cons

    As it is a one-stop shop for a business, from workflow management to business management, it can take some getting used to as there are quite a few moving pieces. But once you get a hang of it you can't really do without it.

    Alternatives Considered

    Timely, monday.com, Asana and Monograph

    Reasons for Switching to Synergy

    Its integration with Xero and because my accountant seemed to understand it aswell.

    Synergy allows us to track our time more effectively and handle client requests with greater speed.

    Pros

    The ability to see exactly what time and bills are assigned to each invoice is amazing, and really helped the architects understand what my accounting department does.

    Cons

    The integration with QuickBooks in the US needs some work. This remains a pain point for us. Bills have to be entered twice, and that's time we can't use for something better.

    Reasons for Choosing Synergy

    A clunky user interface made working in the program difficult, and sunsetting support just put a deadline on the process.

    Reasons for Switching to Synergy

    A sleek look and feel made the architects happy to use it, which is half the battle!

    Suggested Timesheet Improvements

    Reviewed on 15/06/2023

    Pros

    It is useful to track work and assess workload of the team.

    Cons

    - The timer option in the time sheets has the potential to be much more useful. The timer could directly fill in the time sheet, in addition to what is already in that task to that dat. Then the timer would be a much more useful function (at least the option for this to be the case).- In the time sheets, there should be the option to copy and paste tasks (not the times) from previous weeks, to save having to fill it in each week when the project is ongoing. There should also be the option to copy and paste the tasks on the same week to be able to make minor changes, so one does not need to fill it in from the top down each time. These can be applied to both the time sheets and the expenses.

    Reviewed on 17/05/2023

    Pros

    Synergy is very user friendly, the ease of the financial management of projects is a very positive feature. The dashboard is informative at a glance and the analytics side of the program is useful for Directors and Administrators.

    Cons

    There isn't currently a function to include billing entities under a parent company, however I am hoping this is on the list for a future Synergy roll out.
