Unraveling the Role of Branding in shaping sustainable business success.

When we collaborated with the design agency vioki to develop the new name for our company, syniotec, we initially were a little bit hesitant. Our previous brand was close to our hearts, and it was already making a name in the industry, but as we went deeper into the concept of brand architecture and its principles, it became clear that this is the step for us. 

The branding goes far beyond a name or the aesthetics of the brand, but represents and communicates how we collaborate with our partners, how we position ourselves in the market with our solutions, and what our mission is in the industry.

As many of you have already heard during our brand-event, the name syniotec, consists of the three syllables syn-iot-tec, which perfectly represent our solutions and company mission. syniotec – SYNchronzing people and machines with the possibilities of the future through IoT solutions and the highest TEChnical standards.

In every industry, there are external factors that can influence and change what the industry needs over a period of time. In the construction industry, for example, the current shortage of skilled labor, supply chain disruptions, and the increasing importance of emissions reductions can cause disruptions in the type of problems the industry faces, and the types of solutions needed to address those problems.

 Adopting a long-term perspective when building a brand is now a much needed cornerstone for shaping sustainable business growth. With that being said…

What does it really take to build a brand that drives that long-term resilience and success?
Loud, bold & techy…

…that’s how we summarize the bright red color, contrasting black, and carefully chosen font of the syniotec brand visual identity. These elements make syniotec unmistakable and help us stand out in a pool of competitors.

As a company that sets new standards in the industry, we challenge the status quo and differentiate ourselves by daring to be different. In a diverse tech world already saturated with stand-alone-solutions and brands, we strive to establish new benchmarks and create a brand that stands out and leaves a lasting impression, that will definitely set the stage for long-term success.

Cutting out the noise

Our repositioning also aimed to provide clarity to external stakeholders, including existing customers, partners, and new clients, about the solutions we offer and how we help businesses improve. The clean and minimalist design you see in syniotec fosters clarity in product communication, enabling a clear understanding of the benefits of our solutions.

Internally, this minimalist approach allows us to align our brand identity with a growing and evolving range of solutions while maintaining consistency. This ensures a coherent brand experience and reliable communication, thus ensuring long term success.

We work for YOU…

…and for making the construction industry smarter and more sustainable. This was the final sentence and our slogan from the syniotec brand movie, that many of you have already seen online or through our events. The purpose was capturing the essence of the collaboration between us and our partners. This connection ultimately helps us build a resilient support network that drives long-term growth for the construction industry.

A timeless brand

Embracing a culture of continuous innovation is crucial for us to fulfill our mission and stay one step ahead.

As we have recently witnessed with the increased use of Artificial Intelligence, things can change almost overnight. A brand that remains flexible and relevant despite an evolving product portfolio is an essential requirement for quickly adapting to market shifts and needs. The goal is to have a brand that can adapt rapidly to change and act as a catalyst for product enhancement rather than a constraint.
