Elements is continually evolving…



Symplectic unveils a new version of their market-leading platform that is simply beautiful

What is Elements Version 6?

To put it simply, Version 6 is the latest product upgrade of Elements, but that barely tells the full story.

Version 6 was designed with the aim of exceeding all design and ease-of-use expectations and brings to life the most straightforward platform in the market – truly eliminating burden wherever possible. Version 6.0 represents both the culmination of over a year’s worth of planning, design and development as well as partnership with our clients and users.
