Move on up to Synergy cloud

Synergy has moved far beyond the desktop and periodic upgrades. Cloud technologies allow Synergy to rapidly evolve to meet our AEC customers’ complete project delivery needs — wherever they are creating smart and beautiful spaces.

It's time to make the switch

By 31 December 2022 your Total Synergy on-premises practice management software will unfortunately no longer continue to be supported, and hence, we’d like to encourage and help you to migrate all your data to Synergy cloud. We’ll work closely with your business to make this transition as quick and as seamless as possible.


In light of the covid pandemic, it’s never been more imperative to transition to a dynamic, cloud platform to enable your team to work from anywhere, help you attract and retain staff and deliver better projects.


We understand your concerns around time, cost, and capacity to make this migration to Synergy cloud happen, but we’d like to assure you that the benefits to your business of migrating from desktop to cloud far outweigh the short-term pains.

The main benefits of migrating to Synergy cloud include:


Work from anywhere, at any time, on any device, and easily manage remote teams


No maintenance or installations required, one universal version that’s always up to date

Cost of management

No servers or networks to manage, and no separate security or maintenance costs

Backup and recovery

Multiple back-ups and instant recovery increases operational resilience


Rapid, frequent release cycles, with opportunities for customers to provide feedback on product features

Software integration

Easily integrate with other cloud software, and connect multiple specialist apps


Secure network infrastructure, secure hardware and firmware, and multiple layers of data encryption


Highly scalable platform, easily change users and storage levels to improve business efficiency
