Our current technology is efficient and effective, enabling our staff to conduct work seamlessly and fast in any location. One technological trend which we have followed is the introduction of the Six Sigma process. This simply relates to a measure of quality that strives for near perfection. Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects. The aim of this program is to improve our customers experience, lower costs and build better leaders.
The Synergy Group expansion has led to state of the art business centres, offering fully furnished serviced offices in the prime location of Dubai’s business district. Entrepreneurs and established businesses alike now have a dynamic new space to call home, thanks to the launch of Synergy’s first business centre brand. Officially named Synergy Smarter Office Solutions, the first offering under the innovative work space features twenty-seven fully furnished offices and modern meeting room. A prime multi-use location this business centre overlooks the buzzing Downtown Dubai, the Burj Khalifa area and is in the heart of Business Bay. This thriving district is conveniently located within close proximity to Dubai International Airport, making it a perfect base for business.
Synergy Smarter Office Solutions is second to none and thanks to its outstanding facilities, we know our project on creating business centres will be a huge success,” comments Stuart. “Synergy’s ethos is about “making better companies” and we have no doubt that this is the perfect environment for any business, from start-ups to established companies. It also offers affordable short and long-term serviced offices making it ideal for any company wanting to keep overheads low in this impressive space.

Synergy Smarter Office Solutions enables around the clock access and professional support tailored to suit individual needs, offering everything a business needs in one dynamic space. Stuart highlights the rest of the company’s plans for the future.
We are working on a project that will provide working environments for people who are self-employed, freelance, contracting or working for different employers. This will be a great way to collaborate on business ventures and network with others internationally, as well as being a highly cost effective way of accessing office space and support facilities on a short-term basis. In the Middle East, networking and gaining local contacts can be even more important, as doing business here can differ from western countries. Taking into account the brilliant platform the UAE has created for businesses both upcoming and new, we see ourselves developing further into being the preferred choice for entrepreneurs and seasoned business owners alike, creating a one stop shop for all their business related affairs. The newly launched Synergy Business Centre venture brings us one step closer to reaching that goal.
