"I am an architect and project manager and I have been using Synergy for the past 2 years on the construction of the new hospital in Mitchell's Plain and it has been great to know that there is a system which is reliable when it comes to document management. The consultants and the contractor are happy with the system and I would definitely use Synergy for my next job"

"We find Synergy easy to use, fast and effective. Record keeping is hassle-free, and exchange of information does not clog your inbox. Using Synergy also complies with our ISO 9001 quality management system in terms of issuing, filing and record keeping. We are using Synergy as the data-exchange for the bulk of our commercial projects."
Jaco de Villiers, Aurecon
"We have used Synergy very successfully on some of our larger projects. The operating system has allowed us access to drawings and project administration on a real time basis thereby ensuring that minimal time is lost between construction and design, including administrative issues. The system has been a contributing factor to the success of the projects."
Mike Burger, NMC Contracts Director, NMC
Synergy is a very valuable tool in the process of sharing documentation amongst teams and contractors. Synergy improves access to information, is an accurate real-time record and management of information flow. It also saves wasted printing time and paper and associated costs. While the system does demand that teams make adaptations to old habits and define/agree new protocols, the improvement and efficiency in information flow and accessibility is well worth the paradigm shift. We highly recommend to our clients and colleagues to use the system in their construction projects.

A fast track project with consultants located in various parts of the country required an information distribution and sharing platform that was fast, reliable and easy to use. Synergy was the answer. It allowed Architects in Johannesburg to coordinate with engineers in Cape Town in real time. The contractor on site was able to get his hands on the construction information the instant it was loaded on to Synergy. I would recommend the system to any project team looking to benefit from the speed and agility brought by the lastest developments in information technkology.
Derrick Nkera, Ariya Projects
With the volume of change undertaken, the system proved invaluable in tracking the changes on the project and providing easy distribution of the same to the contractors. Whilst hard copies of all drawings were printed and held on site, remote access to the lastest drawings for use in RFI's, claims and informal queries was particularly easy with the system. Arguments on the date of issue of any revision were non-existant on the project. I would not hesitate to recommend the use of the system.

I was introduced to Synergy at the beginning of the Tyger Valley Mall Refurbishment project. I have found Synergy to be an efficient and trustworthy system for receiving information, and would not want to go back to the old systems. The fact that Synergy assigns a reference number to all documents uploaded makes it a fool proof tracking system. With the Synergy system in place, I have also found that it is no longer necessary to keep large copies of all drawings on file, which cuts down on space and filing time.
