AEC Industry Focus

Knowledge Architecture has been 100% 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 architecture and engineering firms.

The features, functionality, integrations, and implementation process for Synthesis have been developed over time to meet the needs of our clients—leading architecture and engineering firms.

Our product roadmap will continue to be driven by our growing list of AEC clients, which means Synthesis will only improve over time.

The Right Integrations

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

Our long-standing relationships with these integration partners mean that when new versions of their software come out, Synthesis keeps right on humming.

In addition to our industry-specific integrations, Synthesis also integrates with Microsoft SharePoint, Active Directory, and Lync/Skype for Business.

Come for the Software. Stay for the Community.

When you become a Knowledge Architecture client you become a member of the Synthesis Community.

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.

To accomplish these goals we currently offer our clients four Synthesis Workshops each year, bi-annual Intranet Improvement Projects, monthly Office Hours, and an online community. The Synthesis community, called KA Advance, provides daily opportunities to learn from and with other Synthesis clients and the Knowledge Architecture team.

We further our commitment to community by running an annual conference focused on knowledge management for the AEC industry called KA Connect. Over the past seven years, hundreds of outside experts and industry practitioners have shared big ideas, best practices, and case studies on the topic of knowledge management. All KA Connect talks are available online.

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.
