Synergetic Windows client

Synergetic and SynWeb are complementary programs using a common database. For example, any attendance records created in SynWeb are available to update in Synergetic and vice versa. The two main advantages of SynWeb are that:

  • SynWeb is available using a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome or Safari
