I hope you are all fine. We want to make the sync meetings we have held throughout the organization more efficient. We are currently holding PO Sync meetings on a monthly basis and SoS meetings on a weekly basis. In particular, we want to carry out the weekly SoS meetings more efficiently. For example; Ensuring participation in the meeting, interactive meeting process and increasing useful outputs after the meeting. I would like to learn how you manage similar dependency meetings and what tools/equipment you use. 

Our applications that are currently in common use such as jira, confluence, mural. Are there any structures that you benefit from these applications? Or do you use different applications?

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Why not descale the challenge, so that cross-functional teams become fully capable of creating their own Product Increments, and the dependencies you speak of are correspondingly reduced?

I'm not entirely sure what a "sync meeting" is but it sounds like some type of project management coordination meeting where people discuss dependencies and give status to others.  It also sounds like nothing that is described in the Scrum Guide or any scaling methods that I know. 

I agree with @Ian.  Why not address the problem that is causing these meetings to exist and return the control back to the individual Scrum Teams? If you are struggling to make these meetings efficient, maybe it is because they aren't the proper solution to the problem.
