Kat Lethbridge — Cera Stribley Architects

Role/s in the business

Kat is the studio operations manager of Cera Stribley Architects, an architectural practice based in Prahran, Victoria. In five years, Cera Stribley Architects has grown from four staff members to 39.

Managing blowouts before they happen

“When we do our monthly invoicing, we use Synergy’s WIP reports. These bi-monthly WIP reports help the business manage blowouts before they happen.”

Xero connection

“We love the [Synergy] connection with Xero. There’s no double entry. It just syncs so smoothly. It’s been a real saving grace.”

Moving away from Excel — forecasting and resourcing

“Spreadsheets are prone to being tampered with, and they are still their own standalone documents. Synergy will enable our resourcing and forecasting data to be much easier to access for the team, which is great. In turn, this will automatically calculate availability.”

Assessing project performance

“Earned value management (EVM) is going to be really great for our senior leaders, to have a realistic figure to measure their team and project performance against.”

Why we need Synergy

“It’s really important to us that everything is centralized — in one place, where everyone can access it.”
