Over the last five years, Gantek Technologies has evolved from a company focusing predominately on hardware products into an experienced ICT solutions service provider with a strong presence in the market. Throughout its fast growth phase, the company enhanced its ICT expertise with sophisticated human resources, to be able to provide ICT consultancy and systems integration services.
In order to realize the huge growth prospects in the Turkish ICT market, five different companies have been founded between 1997 and 2000 as separate entities. Today, all companies are consolidated under “Gantek Technologies” and forces are joined to provide “total customer satisfaction”.
As Gantek Technologies’ strength has increased, it has moved closer to realizing its strategy of becoming a leader in systems integration segment and a prominent ICT solutions provider. Particularly with the synergy created through the merge with a leader software company, namely Intracom, Gantek Technologies' aim is to expand its current range of services and provide more advanced and improved products to its niche markets both in the hardware and software areas and become a global company.
Customer satisfaction and the significant effort of dedicated employees have enabled Gantek Technologies to sustain its growth in a competitive and complex marketplace. Since its establishment in 1987, the company has adhered to its vision by seeking new tools and new ways of meeting the challenges of the technological revolution. In this process, Gantek Technologies has sought to apply the science of ICT creatively and with consideration for performance simplicity and cost efficiency.
The company's target segments include large-scale enterprises in manufacturing, telecommunications, oil and gas, power, finance, media, the public sector, the military, education and health care. Having more than 450 institutional customers, the company offers customers after-sale support services for hardware as well as software products and can provide 24-hour customized maintenance and technical support services seven days a week.
Today, the challenge is to understand the strategic significance of emerging technologies, identify the strategic needs of business and then put in place the appropriate resources and organization structure to ensure that the technology is applied in ways that benefit the business. Since the enterprises might not have the needed resource, knowledge as well as personnel with critical skills, Gantek Technologies aims to emphasize on providing IT outsourcing services to answer those needs.
Gantek Technologies has its headquarters in Istanbul and has increased its activities throughout Turkey as well by expanding its sales operation in Ankara, Izmir, and Bursa with branch offices. It also has local partnerships in Adana, Bursa, Elazig, Diyarbakir, Van, Gaziantep, Trabzon and Northern Cyprus.
Due to the nature of the information systems industry, Gantek Technologies gives special attention to its human resources, recognizing that these underpin its competitive advantage. The company employs 109 qualified professionals who can respond spontaneously and creatively to problems. This is particularly critical for the company as it works primarily with large-scale enterprises. To ensure efficient and effective services and to maintain long-term relationships with customers, Gantek Technologies provides continual training opportunities in Turkey and abroad to employees in mission-critical operations.

Gantek Technologies’ activities in the Caspian Region

Gantek Technologies International Operations
Widening its scope and reformulating its business strategy, Gantek Technologies offers "ICT Solutions in Turkey and Eurasia". As part of the new strategy, Gantek started extending its reach to few Eurasian markets. The newly extended solutions, involving both "in-house and acquired solutions" will cover both IT and Telco offerings targeting private and public enterprises in the CIS region.
The strategic partnership with Intracom, a Greek ICT giant with complete solutions and products ranging from IT to various telecom infrastructure applications, is an important asset in supplying customers with end to end solution sets. This partnership not only enables Gantek Technologies to address the business needs of different customer sectors, but also carries the company to the Eurasian region.

Why the Caspian Region
The Caspian market is rich in natural resources and Petrol, but is technologically in-advanced, which is a good opportunity to invest in the region. The technological infrastructure of the Caspian and Central Asian countries are rather under-developed in comparison to Greece and Turkey. The economic growth that started in this region is a proof that the need for telecommunications and information technologies, which is largely a part of telecommunications, will increase. Both the rich petrol resources and the products that could be positioned in different markets are indications that their economies will grow rapidly and they will invest heavily in telecommunications.
Many international companies would consider penetrating into the Caspian Region through Turkey. A good example of this investment politics is Intracom’s attitude. Although Intracom has operations in more than 50 countries, from China to South America, they have investment only in U.S., Hungary and Turkey and this shows Turkey’s importance in entering the region.
Gantek Technologies has business relations with the telecom authorities of Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Kyrgyz Republics. Some projects are pursued in Kazakhstan since ….

What does Gantek Technologies offer
In a complete spectrum, starting from system design, including supply of materials, to implementation, GANTEK provides state-of-the-art systems solutions for its customers’ advanced information and telecommunications requirements together with its strategic partner Intracom.
