Project management software for engineers

Synergy is like a wingman to your engineering practice

Project management software — designed and built for engineers.

We understand, you love to analyse, forecast and plan. Engineers, while you’re passionate about engineering, you still like to think ahead, to challenge yourself and others around you.

To successfully achieve your goals, you need software than can keep up, that can help you manage risks while minimizing the complexity that can often come with running a successful engineering business. Synergy helps you manage your projects, set your rates, keep track of your time with timesheets, invoice clients, make sure they pay your invoices on time, track and report on your finances and ultimately be able to plan and forecast your future workflow and cashflow in advance.

Managing all of this data can be quite a time consuming task as an individual or contractor and only gets harder when you have a team of engineers or a full staff of office administrators, HR, accounts, salespeople etc. to help with the day-to-day running of the business.

That’s where Synergy can help.

Synergy helps you manage your projects but will also provide you with the data you need to analyse your project profitability, track what work brings the biggest rewards, prepare you for the unexpected and identify possible problems and ultimately keep your business running smooth.

Synergy can also help you communicate, an essential skill for any engineer when dealing with multiple projects. Whether your projects are large or small, clear communication is vital when explaining instructions and presenting solutions to clients and team members. The Synergy portal provides you with a great place to collaborate with the ability to chat within your team, chat with clients, share documents, invoices and create transmittals – business edition feature.
