  • The Synchrony Systems team are absolute wizards with programming languages. Their experience with modernizations across many platforms has given them a unique ability to anticipate many potential hiccups and challenges and mitigate them early on. Their systematic approach using rules-based automation and a platform that manages the entire modernization project lifecycle is unlike anything else on the market today. This is why we continue to engage with them on what’s now three of our major modernization projects. I highly recommend Synchrony Systems without hesitation to other companies who need to modernize their applications.

  • Everyone's been great. When we have questions, even outside our scheduled status meetings, the response has been really good, and we don't have to wait for days. I don't see any reason why we wouldn't take the same approach on another modernization project. When it comes to Synchrony Systems’ modernization process, it is transparent, reliable, and delivers exactly what was promised at the start of the project” said IT Manager - Gas Acquisition of SoCalGas.

  • Synchrony completed the modernization of our mission-critical, client/server, VAGen application to Web 2.0 running under Linux according to plan — on time and on budget. The application went to production as scheduled. We were able to deploy the application under Linux and retire the IBM i platform. Our graphical User Interface has been transformed with 100% equivalence to the Web and avoided any additional end-user retraining. The application is now better performing than its predecessor, and being that is web-based, the end-user productivity has also significantly increased.

  • The facelift migration project was completed according to plan, on time and on budget, and the application was put into internal production as scheduled. The MLP previewing environment integrated with defects tracking was very productive and helped speed up a lot the regression testing and quality assurance.

  • I consider Synchrony Systems a professional company. They put down a challenging planning and stuck to it. Their knowledge of the subject matter is impressive. To them, a deal is a deal. What I can say, is that the size of the Smalltalk system you converted to Java was once estimated at 4.5K functions points (fp). Assuming it would take 10 man-hours to develop 1 fp, development of the system would take 45K man hours. Using an all-in price of $100 per hour, the system would cost $4.5M to develop. The alternative for us would have been a development from scratch, and would have meant a cost of about $4.5M. This also does not include additional cost, effort and time for user acceptance testing and time to put a system into production.

  • I have always found Synchrony Systems to be a reliable, high-quality source of technical consulting in Smalltalk and Java. Whether it's been Smalltalk or Java development, object-oriented analysis and design, frameworks development, or various flavors of platform migration, Synchrony has demonstrated a depth of knowledge and experience that has matched or exceeded the capabilities of much larger organizations. It has been a comfort to know that no problem, however thorny, large or small, has been beyond the ability of Synchrony's experts to solve.
