Welcome to The Content Management Solutions company

We are an independent services and solutions company specialising in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technologies.  

Founded in 2003, SynApps provides software, consultancy, implementation and support services for Alfresco, OpenText Documentum & M-Files and has authored a suite of content integration and migration solutions, ConXApps, that allow businesses to quickly maximise their investment in ECM technologies.

Organisations across healthcare, government and commercial markets rely on SynApps’s solutions and services to capture, manage and share knowledge dynamically and efficiently, delivering both business benefit and regulatory compliance where required.

In the healthcare sector, SynApps in conjunction with its partners, is a pioneer in advanced vendor-neutral archives. These are transforming the way NHS Trusts provide the whole patient record (DICOM/non-DICOM) to clinicians via existing EPR systems and share the records with other healthcare providers in the local community and potentially nationally.
