Syx wins Plopsa amusement parks partnership

Syx Automations, the integrated ticketing and leisure management company, has partnered with Plopsa amusement parks.

Under the agreement, Syx will provide Plopsa and its parks with a cloud-based ticketing and booking system starting in 2018. The parks welcomed three million visitors in 2015.

Syx will implement more than 30 ReCreateX POS systems across the six Plopsa venues in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.

ReCreateX is a state-of-the-art software application that processes high volumes of ticket sales, memberships and event bookings. The software includes bespoke modules such as CRM and has an easy to use point of sale front-end, which processes ticket sales including invoicing and itineraries, retail, food and beverages and course bookings management.

The Rheinland-Pfalz-based Plopsa Holiday Park comes as Syx’s first customer in Germany. Syx will also deliver Plopsa’s first four self-service kiosks in De Panne, Belgium to help alleviate long queuing times at ticket desks for visitors.

In addition, Syx has also been named as Plopsa’s online ticketing partner, payment gateway and third-party resale platform.

Edwin Hemkes, sales director at Syx, said: “We have been in contact with the Plopsa team for over 15 years and are thrilled to finally have them on board. Our recent Gantner merger provides us with a global network of offices from where we can support customers like Plopsa with a cross-border growth strategy.

“The partnership with Plopsa also gives us the opportunity to translate and prepare our ticketing solutions for the German-speaking countries. We are accelerating our further international growth, which is beneficial for all our software users. It allows us to further invest in continuous innovations, which in turn provide our customers with tools, which focus on increasing revenues and enhancing visitor experience.”

Steve Van den Kerkhof, chief executive of Plopsa Group, said: “Plopsa selected Syx Automations because of its innovative integrated total solutions, the extended functional possibilities, open API and its elaborate services: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
