North East’s Synergi celebrates anniversary with expansion roll-out

Growing North East technology company Synergi has relocated its head office to accommodate continued expansion around the UK.

The Gateshead company, which recently moved to larger offices on The Watermark business park, is celebrating its fifth anniversary with ambitious plans to develop its national presence in Edinburgh, Glasgow, and London.

Established in August 2013 by Peter Joynson and Justin Short, the directors saw a shift and opportunity in the market for a modern technology company which focused and specialised on a Microsoft toolkit of software and business applications.

There has been year-on-year growth of 30% with annual turnover set to hit almost £2m within this next 12 months.

Synergi’s current 20-strong team of specialist technology and digital transformation consultants is steadily growing as more businesses and organisations switch from traditional IT systems to more flexible cloud-based technology.

The latest Microsoft technologies like Office 365, SharePoint, CRM and their Dynamics 365 financial solutions are all now available and can all be integrated via the cloud to automate and improve business functions.

Peter Joynson, Synergi MD, said: “The next five years should be even more exciting for both our business and customers. As companies more widely adopt cloud platforms and extend them to do more advanced things like process automation, the impact of emerging capability in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning will bring a whole new dimension to the potential of our solutions and the value customers can expect from them.

“Much of our focus right now is about taking the mundane tasks out of human roles to help them add value to their organisation.”

Mr Joynson added that Synergi has adapted to a changing marketplace by realigning its business offer into three focussed pillars of expertise to allow them to offer relatively simple to highly complex solutions to customers.

Synergi’s new strategy focuses on core Office 365 and Security, the recently launched Dynamics 365 Business Central for ERP and CRM capabilities, and Nintex for process automation and insight.

“Intelligent process automation is central to everything we do at Synergi,” said Mr Joynson.

The company’s ability to provide these automation solutions to a high standard has won them major contracts with many clients across the North East, Scotland, the North West and more recently in London. Clients include Irish Life, Repsol, Drager, Scottish Fire, Yorkshire Water, Babcock and Port of Tyne.
