Daniel Calder — Bespoke Architects

More time for training

Daniel Calder: “Nicole [co-founder] and I both got given the opportunity to start our careers while we were studying… We know how important that is for development of students and getting them into the workforce early. That was our background, so we’re more than happy to provide that to other students now.” 

Role/s in the business

“I handle the practice management side of the business… My business partner manages the residential portfolio. I manage the commercial portfolio.” 

Why we need Synergy

“We had a lot of active projects on the go and spreadsheets weren’t cutting it… We were using Microsoft OneNote to communicate and keep each other up-to-date with projects, where we were with invoicing, who was working on what for timesheets… We really needed a place to combine all of the information, streamline it and make it time efficient.” 

Core Synergy features used by Daniel

Time saved as a result

“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.”
