Global tech specialist Modaxo has made its first airport industry acquisition, buying Civix’s Critical Infrastructure (“Civix CI”) division, also known as GCR.

Civix CI’s solution portfolio provides an integrated software platform known as AirportIQ for some of the world’s busiest airports, among them Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, the Houston Airport System, JFK, and San Francisco International. AirportIQ enables staff to manage their revenue, safety and security programmes, airport operations, and key resources. As part of Modaxo, AirportIQ and similar products now fall under the TADERA brand.

Civix CI, now TADERA, is the culmination of more than 40 years of experience serving the airport sector. The company’s mission is to help improve the safety, security, and fiscal position of airports in order to provide world class facilities for the movement of passengers and cargo. The new brand and name of TADERA emerged from the company’s desire to: facilitate Transportation, Aviation, and Destinations as part of the next ERA of people transportation in the skies.

TADERA general manager Tim Walsh said, “We share Modaxo’s passion for changing the face of public transportation through technology solutions that connect people with the places they need to go. Modaxo is a great home for our team and clients as we help facilitate the safety, efficiency and security of air travel.”

“The TADERA team brings an incredible amount of domain experience within the aviation and airport space, as they have worked in and supported every sector of airport management,” said Rod Jones, Modaxo’s head of Americas. “That deep understanding of its customers’ business processes is the reason why the company has been trusted by so many airports around the world. We welcome them to Modaxo.”
