Foreword
Synchro Software Ltd delivers innovation technology designed to serve the construction delivery team every day in real-time. The company has a history of delivering of real improvements in software for the construction industry. The Company
Synchro Software Ltd, a UK company, began software product development in 2001 of its construction simulation and task management solution. At its heart is the recognition that, until the project production is clearly defined and integrated, demand cannot be understood and coordination cannot be achieved; cutting off the benefits that flow from market opportunities. Synchro offers a genuinely different approach to the management of projects by synchronising design, scheduling, supply chain management, risk management and earned value measurement. Synchro Software Ltd has a track record for developing innovative technology for construction projects throughout the UK and in 2007 began worldwide distribution of its third generation of products.

Innovation Built for Reality


Today, Synchro Software Ltd has technology relationships in the form of technology development agreements with Primavera, Autodesk, TechSoft3D and others. These strategic relationships offer our joint customers the right ingredients to leverage existing software investments and extend benefits beyond information silos, which commonly exist between well-formed industry processes. Our aim and our principles are straightforward: deliver software that serves the construction delivery team and survives the dynamics of everyday life in the construction industry. As construction is a series of problems that get solved, our software enables users to explore options and manage solutions.

Award Winning Solutions
