Your architecture wingman
The thought of having to manage projects and all of the associated tasks involved probably doesn’t excite you at all. Synergy helps architects manage their business, streamline processes, keep records up-to-date, share files quickly and easily and help you get paid.
It does take a little effort to set up any new project management software. Synergy has shown proven results among our clients with considerable time savings across their architecture practices.
When you start a free trial you will have the option to talk one-on-one with our support team. They will be able to walk you through the basics of setting up your organization, staff details, rates and costs, forecasting, clients and contacts, projects and work breakdown structure including the stages, phases and tasks, how to add tags and notes across the system, how to invoice different fee types on one invoice, start chats and share documents and transmittals using the project portals and much more.

“Previously, invoicing took more than a day, now it’s down to about half a day. So, Synergy has more than halved the time it takes to do our invoicing… We’ve also saved a lot of time with timesheets.”

"Synergy is a one-stop shop. It's a central go-to hub that I have open on my desktop all day. I can access client details, view my projects, invoice clients, track my time and so much more.
