If you ask an MD why they chose Synergist, more often than not the answer you hear is the visibility it brings to them.
It can be a revelation to be able to see, probably for the first time, every aspect of your business summarised into one place.
It's not just visibility, it's live visibility
How can you safely run a complex entity such as a creative agency or a project-based business if you can’t see what’s going on?
At any moment a project might start to slip. Or a large cost might be being added to a job, or an essential resource for a key project might not be now available on time, even though you’re about to commit it to a client.
We asked Steven Clark, Financial & Commercial Manager for Tayburn, for his assessment of the Synergist effect.
"With Synergist I know what’s going on in every job, and the great thing about it is that I know it as it’s happening. Costs are captured real-time. So there are no surprises."
‘After all, if you can’t see what’s working and what isn’t, it’s pretty hard to fix it. Without a clear and constant understanding of key company metrics, businesses and their employees are effectively driving in the dark without the headlights on’.
[2016 survey of UK small businesses]
Your team wants to work smarter, not longer
In a published employee survey of UK small businesses, 81 per cent of employees said they want their bosses to share more information.
Only 9 per cent said they were able to access data in real-time. The article says that the stats go some way to explaining why UK productivity is at a 15-year low.
Fragments of data aren't enough
You don't want to view your business through a keyhole. You need to see it as one entirety. No silos.
When you see a job with Synergist you can drill down to see how it relates to all the individual team members who have participated in it, all the stages, the resources still needed, the costs incurred so far, the projected profitability and so on. It's all one.
LHM told us:
“It’s great to have complete visibility of every job, who’s worked on it, what the estimate was, what the actual costs are, everything. You’re then able generate a report immediately.”
