Why Synthesis?

AEC Industry Focus

Knowledge Architecture has focused on helping architecture and engineering firms find, share, and manage knowledge since our founding in 2009. Synthesis is the only intranet platform designed specifically for the AEC industry.

The Right Integrations

Synthesis integrates with leading AEC industry software: Deltek, OpenAsset, and Newforma—giving you one searchable source of truth.

Commitment to Client Success

Clients of Knowledge Architecture receive so much beyond software. We designed our Client Success Program to not only help our clients successfully launch Synthesis, but also to continually improve their firm’s intranet and knowledge management program long after they’ve gone live.

Best Practices for AEC Intranets

Knowledge Architecture is committed to creating and sharing industry intranet and knowledge management best practices. Almost all of our best practices are co-created with our clients. We then share these best practices with our wider client base to help them improve their intranet programs.

Come for the Software. Stay for the Community.

When you become a Knowledge Architecture client you become a member of the KA Advance Community. KA Advance provides a rich variety of opportunities to learn from and with other Synthesis clients and the Knowledge Architecture team, including—four Synthesis Workshops each year, bi-annual Intranet Improvement Projects, monthly Office Hours, and an online community.

Annual Knowledge Management Conference

We run an annual conference focused on knowledge management for the AEC industry called KA Connect. Over the past nine years, hundreds of outside experts and industry practitioners have shared big ideas, best practices, and case studies on the topic of knowledge management. Each Synthesis subscription includes a complimentary ticket to KA Connect.

Our Team

We understand your business. We speak your language. We share insights and best practices from over 100 firms around the world who run Synthesis. Plus, people seem to like us.
