Last time I did this the data entry took forever. Do you all do data entry? 2015-12-30T23:06:52+00:00

Absolutely, and we do it quickly and accurately. Since we have staff who understand the program, we only need to do it once! Show us what data you have and we will make it happen. Having the data already inputted makes training more efficient and it gets you operational much quicker.

What are your annual license and support fees? 2015-12-30T23:06:19+00:00

This depends upon which style installation you have. With the LAN version it is a calculated percentage of your system; with the Data Center and Web services styles there are no additional fees.

What programs are offered? 2015-12-30T21:33:16+00:00

Fusion™ by Synergy International has 3 styles of installation. The tradition model is LAN based and can be accessed by all licensed users who are entered into the system. Our Data Center model is what is normally thought of as the ‘Cloud’. Fusion™ runs on our sophisticated servers in a true data center and users can connect from anywhere they have an internet connection. Lastly we offer a web services based installation which is for one or two users where Fusion™ resides on the local desktop and data is located on our data center.

Do the different styles of Fusion™ do different things? 2015-12-30T21:33:00+00:00

All installation options contain the exact same program; it is simply a matter of choice.  Web services are good for small user numbers where the Data Center and LAN styles have advantages based on their users’ numbers. Many firms who do not have on-site full time IT staff prefer the data center approach.

How can Fusion™ help me? 2015-12-30T21:28:41+00:00
