SYNCHRO Pro Overview

What is SYNCHRO Pro?

SYNCHRO Pro is a 4D virtual design and construction modeling application, which enables businesses across architectural, engineering, construction, energy, mining and various other industries to create, analyze, and manage projects. Deployed with a real-time transactional database and an open API running on Microsoft Azure Cloud, it facilitates interoperability with multiple scheduling software.

SYNCHRO Pro lets contractors import milestone dates, estimate time frames, and schedule projects based on critical path analysis. Architects can also import 3D models of a full project or work area block along with supporting data about labor, cost, equipment, location, and materials. It offers integration with various CPM scheduling tools and CAD files such as Oracle Primavera P6, Powerproject, Sketchup, Autodesk Navisworks, Revit, and more.

The application allows team members to collaborate in a 4D digital environment, exchange data in real-time, and participate according to roles and permissions-based workflows. Supervisors can also schedule and update construction plans and gain insights into work progress via analytics.

Synchro 3D scheduling


Dustin B.

I am an engineer in the construction industry and have used Synchro for scheduling.

Critical path method scheduling, resource allocation and 4D Scheduling

Software does not work

I purchased Syncbird Pro on Sep 4th 2020. The Software has never worked with my iPhone 8. The Apple libraries Syncbird uses are not the latest one iTunes uses, so if you use one tool you cannot use the other. I could live with this limitation if Syncbird worked! Even though the secondary functions work in the tool, the main function (open the iphone library) does not work. The support has not lived to minimal expectation, they were not able to provide a fix despite sending all the logs, and would not offer a refund. As such, I would definitely not recommend the product.

Improving Our Industry: The Next Level of Project Coordination

Synchro's 4D Construction Management Software is the premiere product currently out on the marketplace. It's extremely simple to use, and brings an entirely new level to preconstruction planning and coordination. Imagine being able to visually review, and constantly improve your project plan 5, 10, or 100 times prior to breaking ground so that when you actually do break ground, there are ultimately no surprises' that's exactly what makes Synchro's 4D tool so invaluable to any construction project, of any size. The primary benefits of implementing Synchro's 4D software are: 1) Visually review your plan, and communicate that plan clearly and quickly, 2) Resolve conflicts before construction, 3) Highly engaged and focused team delivery, 4) Measurable time and cost savings (Improve your bottom line!), and 5) Improved quality, safety, and predictability for your project(s). Synchro's 4D software seamlessly integrates with other industry scheduling software, taking their biggest weakness ' a true CPM engine geared towards risk management reporting over the life cycle of a project ' and making it a strength. Don't take our word for it - Try it for yourself today, and experience first-hand the improved project delivery results that, if you're like us here at AEC Controls, you won't be able to live without on any of your future projects.

Critical path method scheduling, resource allocation and 4D Scheduling

Pros

I like the ease of use and simple user interface. The filters and shortcuts make normal functions easier and more streamlined. The system doesn't give multiple options for simple tasks. It gives the basic options and allows for simply use. The benefit of this software over similar software such as Primavera P6, is the simplistic nature. Primavera uses hundreds of options, where as Synchro keeps it to the point.

Cons

The thing I like least about the software is the architecture of the programming. My computer would not run the software due to an integrated graphics card versus a dedicated card. Once I received a new computer from our IT team, the software worked great, but requiring a dedicated graphics card can be prohibitive.

Response from Synchro

Thank you Dustin- glad to hear all is running smoothly now.
