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
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 offers its target market next-generation products,
which enable customers to engage in e-commerce, to exchange mission-critical
business information through the Intranet, Internet and networks,
and to manage their data. Gantek Technologies works on a project basis,
analyzing customers’ infrastructure and providing integrated solutions
to their hardware and software problems.

Value Added Services
1) Systems Integration

thanks to the huge experience of Gantek Technologies in this segment,
high quality services namely concentrated on the e-integration segment
of this area are provided.
2) Professional Services:
Gantek Technologies has highly experienced and capable technical consultants
who are currently working on several implementation and customization
consultancy services. Particularly with the synergy created through
the partnership with Intracom Inc., these consultants will be operating
on the regional target markets as well. Especially, an activity of

3) Special Projects:
Since its establishment, Gantek Technologies has worked as technology
enabler for various kinds of companies on several projects. Considerable
amount of investment has been made on distance learning projects.
An Internet based, synchronized project has been developed for Istanbul-Harran
Universities, enabling the students in Diyarbakir to follow the courses
given in Istanbul University. Another successful example is the “DIL”
Distance Interactive Learning project, developed together with METU
School of Foreign Languages and Teknopark. The “Mobynet”
project, completed jointly with Cisco, Superonline, TAV and Mikom,
is again a special success story, which enabled the wireless internet
access in Ataturk Airport.
Gantek Technologies’ activities in the Caspian
Gantek Technologies International
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
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
