I think I can happily say we are running a like a well oiled machine now days, the few things that we are changing or developing are most to keep with the latest technologies of the time or upgrading to newer ways of doing things, or building a new fancy report. I would say my experience with sync has been great and will continue to be great for years to come, I have a great relationship with sync and look forward to new developments in the program to improve what already has been improved. The current state of all procedures are not set in stone, continuous improvement is what sync knows we are all about.

Pros
The fact that the sync team bends the software to suit your business. The package slowly changes and adapts to your business. There are big development updates that often bring in updates that you didn't know you needed however streamline your work flow further than you thought possible. Just recently Sync have developed a program for my company to scan jobs through the plant with a live immediate update to the server. it's been 5 years and to this day we have had no downtime, I can tell you which roll of fabric we used 5 years ago for the the garment you bring me today and it's full history this is where it gets interesting, where using history to predict the future of your business. I often use sync's data to forecast stock levels as well as tell the customer what they used before and help build a holding level for them going forward often to the customers surprise that we using data from so far back. I have appreciated that I have had a contact person who knows our system as well as we do, having a one stop person on speed dial goes a long way.

Cons
Early stages there were a few aspects that I would like changed however that would require the core system to change, these are all things of the past now days. I honestly believe you need a dedicated Sync admin on site, I was this person however if your company does not have a dedicated Sync admin or buy in from management to drive the system in, this could lead to a messy system. Capture bad data and you will get bad data out. changing what people have been doing or capturing over the past years to the new system will be your biggest challenge, people don't like change. (not really a con, this change is worth it if staff buy in) however this could be a challenge, with sync people are the biggest variable.

Extremely good and all my needs are met , they are an example other software vendors need to follow in terms of customer service

Pros
* Ease of use * Guidance and training provided * Ability to fulfil most functionality I require * Exceptional customer service * Quick and economical turn around of new reports * Data integrity , I cannot recall one incident of issues with data integrity

Cons
* There are one are two screens that are not as intuitive as could be , once you know what to do very easy , but if one had never worked in that screen you would not be able to proceed without training .

The reporting and system efficiency is of the highest quality. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Pros
Due to the nature of our business, the Sync systems are able to achieve offshore manufacturing with minimal errors. Part of our manufacturing is in non English speaking countries and they are achieving the desired result. Our requirements are met 100%. Our processes are user friendly, efficient and ensure full trace-ability at all times. We use Sync for all our raw materials processing, full manufacturing processes, finished goods processing, distribution, web sales (including online) to our Finance integration.

Cons
As the Company Sync administrator I cannot fault the system in any way. We have the support of efficient and professional service from the local office if required.

Stand out operational system with great support and product development. Very happy with the system and will highly recommend the use in the industry.

Pros
Software is very user friendly and allows one to see the detail and to get a overall view of the operational activities. Support is of the highest quality and the development team are are very willing and capable with customized reports. The whole operational process can be done on one platform in an industry with many variables and diverse BOM's. The software platform is very consistent with no downtime and virtually no errors in data integrity. Extremely functional and reliable operational system.

Cons
Terminology in the industry is a problem and thus some descriptions/terminology is difficult to understand at first.

Our company has been using Sync for around 6 years now and it has really changed the way we are able to manage our business. It has also helped to improve productivity and meant that we were able to implement a fast fashion model.

Pros
It is easy to use and easy to train staff on the way it works. New improvements come out regularly, and support is fast and efficient.

Cons
Some of the features we would like to have developed take longer than we would like.
