Score 10 out of 10
12d Synergy is being used in our organization to help manage 12d model and engineering design data/documentation on small to large scale infrastructure projects across numerous disciplines and geographical locations. 12d Synergy helps solve resource sharing issues and data management integrity by having a centralized server where users are able to check-in/check-out data. It speeds existing working conditions up as users work on the files in a local work space and once finished, check the data back to the server with a description of what has changed during the check out period. This process allows other users to be notified of changes, what has changed and if needed, the users can roll back previous versions of files.
- 12d Synergy manages 12d model data and data sharing for projects across the same or different locations really well and provides security and integrity that wasn't available before 12d Synergy was developed.
- 12d Synergy integrates with the Microsoft Office suite including outlook really well, with solutions to help transfer information attributes from 12d Synergy into documentation fields, saving time and maintaining consistency. It manages and files emails and can be set up to be simply filed away or have additional information attached to the email if necessary.
- 12d Synergy could provide additional analytical reporting on user behavior and usage out of the box.
- Improved speeds when referencing shared files from other 12d model projects.

12d Synergy is particularly well suited to engineering and construction firms involved in managing data on any size project. It handles the management and integration of 12d model projects and other engineering documentation throughout a project life cycle. Data is managed in a centralized server or cloud setup and allows users in different locations to check in and check out data to a local workspace. This process allows users to receive notifications and see what has changed on folders and files and provides the users an ability to roll back to the previous version if necessary.
