Syx Automations is to change its name to Gantner following the two companies’ merger last year.

The company said the decision to rebrand is in line with its international growth strategy. It said the collaboration of the two companies “creates a broad synergy, giving customers access to a wide variety of integrated solutions”.

Gantner Ticketing will be used as a brand name for all activities focussing on ticketing and leisure.

In a statement Gantner said: “Gantner has its main strength and expertise in technology hardware and related software.

“Syx has its main strength and expertise in software and applications. This allows the new group to approach current and new customers with an offer of sophisticated integrated technology where they maximise value for their customers, by leveraging their combined strengths.”

Gantner said the merger has created a global supplier of integrated projects consisting of software and hardware solutions for access control and management systems for the sports and leisure industry.
