Project Management

Synergy Systems provides a variety of project management services to our clients. These services can span the full systems development life-cycle or can be limited to discrete project tasks. We staff each engagement to provide the level of expertise required to ensure your successful systems solution.

Many of our clients do not retain dedicated development personnel on staff as such resources are cost prohibitive given the needs of their organization; our engagements for these clients require us to perform a full spectrum of project tasks. However, where in-house development expertise exists – and is available to the project – the engagement scope can be tailored to ensure that our staff complement internal resources for specific, specialized tasks. Whether provided by client staff or by our personnel, each project must have the experience and expertise to ensure that your project is successfully initiated, developed, and implemented.

A broad project management skill set is required to provide the experience necessary to develop, promote, and synthesize input from – and cooperation among – individuals and groups both internal and external to your organization. Many of our project managers and business analysts have educational backgrounds in Accounting, Finance, Management, and/or Marketing. All have developed project skill sets based on experience on engagements across a wide variety of corporate, association, and not-for-profit clients.

A sampling of project management engagements provided to our clients include:
