On March 19, 2020 we announced our free COVID-19 Synergy Pro Aid License programme. We are proud to share that it is making a difference in the fight against the pandemic.

Medical Research

In the medical research industry, multi-computer setups are commonplace due to the amount of specialized equipment required. The Fudan Medical University in China uses Synergy to make their workspace more efficient, speeding up progress on a cure for COVID-19.

"Thanks to Synergy's ability to control multiple hosts with the same keyboard and mouse, this can greatly speed up the progress of our operation and analysis, and speed up the progress for finding specific antibodies for COVID-19 at an early date."
-- Yuxu Niu, Fudan Medical University, China

Hospital & Medical IT

Setting up and maintaining many different workspaces in a hospital requires IT administrators to use multiple systems simultaneously. Synergy is being used at Yale New Haven Health to setup new COVID-19 builds of EPIC HyperSpace (a system for managing patient health records).

"The ability to share keyboard and mouse across devices with Synergy is assisting with workstation setup for working on Epic Hyperspace COVID-19 builds for the health system."
-- Karl Young, Yale New Haven Health Hospital, USA
