Plopsa amusement parks selects Syx Ticketing for its innovative ticketing solutions
Syx is very excited to announce its partnership with the Plopsa amusement parks. As of 2018, Syx Ticketing will provide the Plopsa parks with an innovative cloud-based ticketing and booking system. Over 30 ReCreateX POS systems will be implemented across the six Plopsa venues:
– Plopsaland De Panne (B)
– Plopsaqua (B)
– Plopsa Indoor Hasselt (B)
– PlopsaCoo (B)
– Plopsa Indoor Coevorden (NL)
– Plopsa Holiday Park (D)
The Rheinland-Pfalz based Holiday Park comes as Syx’s first customer in Germany, from where it will launch its further growth into the German-speaking countries.
To avoid long queues at the ticket desks and to grant its visitors quick access to the park, Syx will deliver Plopsa’s first 4 self-service kiosks in De Panne.
Plopsa also selected Syx as its partner for online ticket sales, payment gateway and the brand new 3rd-party reseller platform. ReCreateX will be hosted from Syx Automations’ ultramodern new ISO27001 certified data centre in Amsterdam.
Edwin Hemkes, Sales Director at Syx: “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.
