Project management software for architects

Synergy is like a wingman to your architecture practice

30 day free trial - no credit card required.

Project management software — designed and built for architects.

We get it, you love what you do. You're passionate about architecture and love to imagine, design and shape the future of the built environment. At some point though, business can get in the way. You need to manage your projects, set your rates, keep track of your time with timesheets, invoice clients, make sure they pay your invoices on time, track your finances and that's when it's just you — a sole trader.

The complexities are increased when you have a team of architects or a full staff of office administrators, HR, accounts, salespeople etc. to help with the day-to-day running of the business.

Before you know it you're just running a business and not working on your passion — architecture.

That's where Synergy can help.
