Pioneer in the field of RFID/NFC technology
As an early pioneer in the field of NFC (near-field communications) technology, GANTNER’s hardware and software innovations have been transforming the way companies interact with their customers and employees for the past 35 years.
Our contactless NFC systems can be found worldwide, delivering market-leading access control, electronic locker solutions and cashless payment systems for the global leisure and commercial industries.
Our commitment to growth, excellence and performance have made us the partner of choice for many leading companies and institutions in fields as diverse as leisure and retail, commerce, finance, healthcare, education and local government. Whether you run a fitness club, waterpark, spa or ski resort, private hospital, library, office block or educational establishment, GANTNER has access and payment technology solutions that can be entirely tailored to your business needs. GANTNER systems create a contactless environment where admissions, lockers, and point-of-sale offers can all be operated with a single NFC credential: in the form of a contactless card, wristband, or key tag.
This simplified all-in-one solution has revolutionised both the customer and employee journey, streamlined our clients’ entire business operations, brought multiple benefits in the form of reduced administration and running costs, and given both large and small companies a highly competitive edge in their respective markets.
