My Story - Chris Lloyd, IT Consultant / Director
I've been working in the IT industry since 2005. In that time I've taken on many roles, from support, through to software development and project management, working closely with business leaders and maintaining a focus on customer experience throughout.
In 2018 I decided to setup SynEngin with the aim to use my experience to provide consultancy services to small and medium businesses. Those companies who don't have an in house IT team but often need advice and guidance on their IT systems in order to ensure best value for their business.
As well as consultancy services SynEngin can also provide services around said consultancy if your business needs them, from support, to managing cloud services, to software development and building bespoke solutions to help improve efficiencies for your business.
Do you feel you need an IT manager for your business but you can't justify the expense to take someone on full time?
Is your business growing and you want to make sure your IT setup is in a good place and not going to be a blocker to growth?
We can work with you and your business to create a truly fit for purpose IT strategy. Making sure that the IT setup built for your business is right for your requirements and puts you in a great place for the future of your business.
When things go wrong you need them fixed and fast. We can provide quick and effective support to get you back up and running when you need it.
We know how important your IT systems can be to your business and will work to make sure you're back up and running as quickly as possible.
At SynEngin we're partnered with some great cloud services companies and can provide you with the services you need for your business. Whether that be Office365, Cloud backup solutions or many others.
We can not only provide you with the licenses but manage your setup, ensure everything is working as it should and make sure you're getting the best value from your investment.
APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT & SUPPORT
Sometimes there's no software on the market which does what your business needs and you need something bespoke to fix a particular problem.
We've got the skills to build you the application your business needs. Our primary focus is Microsoft .Net technologies and Microsoft SQL server. However we have experience in many other areas not limited to; Excel VBA, SSRS, SSIS, Xamarin mobile app development and Web development.
We've built everything from full blown web based applications running key components of a client's business, to Macro driven Excel worksheets to improve efficiencies and reduce double handling of data.
We can also potentially support or update existing bespoke applications you may have. Please get in touch with any queries and we can have a look.
EventsAlbum is an online service we've built which allows event organisers to gather photos taken by their guests at their event.
The event organiser create the event on our site and generates a QR code and link. Guests can then scan the QR code or click the link to upload any photos they've taken without needing to create an account of download an app.
There's an option to run a live stream of the photos on a screen at the event so they appear as they're uploaded.
All photos are kept at their original resolution and can be downloaded by the event organiser after the event.

What’s Being Said
Chris at SynEngin has recently been helping us with a few projects. These include performing a complete review of our IT systems and working with us to formulate an IT strategy to suit our business over the coming years. He's also helped us build a VBA driven Excel workbook which is allowing us to streamline some of our processes, saving us vital time at critical points in our sales process.
Throughout Chris has provided expert advice and added value whenever we bring him in to discuss our requirements. He's brought a fresh prospective, showing us ways our IT systems could be doing more for us and how we can implement changes to get there.

I have worked with Chris for over 12 years and during this time have grown to respect both his technical skills and business awareness which has seen him deliver some ‘game changing’ applications. His work has enabled the business to continually stretch its boundaries and maximise the use of business data to facilitate continual improvement. As well as a fantastic technical skill set, Chris has the ability to bring a ‘user-friendly’ touch to any project which a massive positive. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chris to anyone in the knowledge that he will understand the challenge faced and deliver an array of technical solutions for further discussion and implementation.
