Synectics Mobile Systems (SMS) and Quadrant Security Group (QSG) have merged to form one of the largest independent security integrators specialising in transport solutions – Synectics Security.
Combining the on-vehicle expertise of SMS with QSG’s experience in providing electronic security solutions for infrastructure projects including railways, stations, bus depots, terminals and ports, Synectics Security will work with “best-of-breed” technology partners to offer “one of the most comprehensive product and service portfolios available to the UK transport market”.
“Pairing decades of experience dealing with the complexities of on-vehicle systems with the expertise and specialist technical qualifications necessary for successful deployment of large-scale security and surveillance infrastructure solutions – that’s our unique capability as Synectics Security,” said Iain Stringer, Managing Director.
“As we progress towards an ever more connected urban infrastructure, we are perfectly positioned to help vehicle operators and infrastructure customers achieve their individual goals, or deliver on their connected visions. In other words, we are perfectly equipped to make end-to-end, converged transport projects a reality and crucially, keep them safe.
“We’ll do this by offering field-proven, innovative, best-of-breed technologies, a pool of expert integration specialists and technical engineers with over 45 years’ combined experience, and access to a more responsive, combined customer support team.”
When asked further about some of the new opportunities Synectics Security hopes to deliver for its customers, Iain added: “We have an exciting development around on-vehicle camera monitoring to announce very soon which will have significant implications for both new installs and retrofit on-vehicle projects. We’re also working hard to expand our offering in terms of cloud capabilities, analytics, intelligent software, and AI integration. We know that these are key areas for our transport customers right now.”
To gain an even deeper understanding of customer needs, the security integrator is currently conducting an extensive customer insight consultation. In addition to steering technical development and strategic partnerships, the information generated will be used to enhance and improve the customer experience – a key driver since the merger.
Commenting on Synectics Security’s focus on tailoring solutions to support its transport customers, Mark Pennington, Commercial Director at Synectics Security, said: “Both businesses always worked to a customer promise of selecting the right innovative technologies to deliver a tailored solution which meets each of their precise needs. That hasn’t changed. But thanks to our merged resources, expert capabilities, and unified, customer-focused workforce, we’re in a much stronger position to deliver that promise and much more besides.”
