But we don’t want to rest on our laurels. In 2016 we will also do everything to reach our top goal: offering our customers the best access solutions and the best service,“ explains CEO Hugo Rohner. The year 2015 was characterized by remarkable success with regard to the internationalization of this innovative leader in access solutions and management. In addition to new subsidiaries in Tunisia and India, the number of countries in which SKIDATA solutions can be found has increased to 95. New locations in Dubai and Mexico are planned for 2016 and yet another goal for the year is 800 new installations around the world.

Market leader in North America and highlights for 2016

SKIDATA has been able to consolidate its position as market leader most notably in America.

SKIDATA innovations in ski tourism: booking solutions, apps and networks

Franz Holzer, Managing Director of SKIDATA, fills us in on future trends in ski tourism

SKIDATA innovations in ski tourism: booking solutions, apps and networks

SKIDATA innovations in ski tourism

Book services on your ski vacation as quickly and easily as possible: more and more tickets are being purchased online. The company SKIDATA with headquarters in Grödig near Salzburg in Austria provides the most modern technology for use in ski resorts. Franz Holzer, SKIDATA´s Managing Director for Austria & Eastern Europe, summarizes current developments: „Technology connects us with ski resorts online. Common ideas from SKIDATA and our customers are incorporated into our innovations for the future.“ Thanks to our company-wide excitement for innovation, SKIDATA awes with new creative solutions that set trends.

SKIDATA trends in the area of skiing

One important trend that SKIDATA is already focusing on is the linking of various services. „Everything from a single source“ is the motto here. In the future, vacationers should be able to not only purchase ski tickets, but also to book ski lessons and rental equipment. When it comes to apps, SKIDATA together with swebtix offers a link between ticketing and numerous features such as the display of altitude covered. Additional apps are already being planned. For ski resort operators, monitoring access terminals is becoming ever more mobile – web-based applications allow greater flexibility in access management.

The development of systems for extreme climate conditions has long been one of SKIDATA´s strengths. Our installations can be found on both sides of the equator, from the Perisher ski resort in Australia to the Levi ski resort in Finland.

Another challenge for the future is the trend towards larger ski pools, in other words the union of ski resorts, such as the Ski Amade or Salzburger Superskicard. In Austria alone nearly all of the approximately 250 ski resorts are already organized into such ski pools. Here it is about designing solutions that offer skiers the greatest possible convenience without compromising safety or controlled access.

SKIDATA is a reliable partner for destinations around the world

As an Austrian company, SKIDATA is well-established in the local ski scene and hosts data from 80% of Austrian SKIDATA customers . But more and more international skiing destinations are also being equipped with professional access solutions by SKIDATA. For example, SKIDATA currently provides equipment to 15 ski resorts in Turkey, such as Kayseri Erciyes AS in Cappadocia.

It´s not only in person at ski resorts, but also from the office, that the SKIDATA team supports our customers on every continent. SKIDATA application technicians can remotely access customers“ devices, thereby quickly and efficiently assisting with adjustments and the optimization of SKIDATA applications. If you´d like to strengthen our team, you can learn more about job vacancies in Engineer Application Services at http://www.skidata.com/karriere/details-zur-offenen-stelle/detail/engineer-application-services-wm.html

Help shape the future of ski tourism – as part of the SKIDATA team

SKIDATA offers software developers, hardware developers and IT technicians the chance to actively shape the future and develop innovations. Managing Director Franz Holzer explains what distinguishes his team: „For me it is especially important that my employees work independently, happily take over responsibility and, above all, deal with customers in a knowledgeable and committed way. Customers should see us as a partner they can completely and totally rely on.“

SKIDATA is an international leader in the field of access solutions and their management. Almost 10,000 SKIDATA installations worldwide in ski resorts, shopping centers, major airports, municipalities, sports stadiums, trade shows, and amusement parks provide secure and reliable access and entry control for people and vehicles.

SKIDATA world-wide: a look at the German SKIDATA subsidiary

Successful since 1990 thanks to teamwork and flexibility

SKIDATA world-wide: a look at the German SKIDATA subsidiary

SKIDATA world-wide: a look at the German SKIDATA subsidiary

SKIDATA“s success story in Germany began in 1990: SKIDATA won the call for tenders to equip Munich Airport. In order to provide the best possible support for this large-scale project, the first German SKIDATA office was founded in Landshut. This proved to be a good choice since cooperation with Munich Airport continues today and has developed into an excellent partnership. For more than 25 years the German SKIDATA headquarters have been located in Landshut and a branch in Frankfurt am Main, which mainly assists customers in the area of People Access, has since been established.

Seeking team players – boredom excluded

As managing director, Ralf Klomp has been responsible for the business“ success in Germany for the past ten years. He explains that teamwork and a passion for innovation are especially important in his staff. Personally he appreciates that it never gets boring in his challenging position at SKIDATA: „New players always enter the parking segment. This leads to promising new cooperations and finding new solutions together.“ It is not only the German market that stays exciting, but the SKIDATA employees will also experience a change this year: in the third quarter, they will move into a new, more spacious office.
Ralf is proud of his staff and values the low turnover within the team: many employees have been with the company for more than 15 years.

Jobs rich in variety in a world-wide leading company

Without the dedicated SKIDATA employees, the company“s success would not have been possible. To continue to be an international leader in access solutions, the company regularly seeks qualified skilled personnel for various departments. Currently we are seeking a service technician to strengthen our Landshut branch:

SKIDATA world-wide

A look at SKIDATA’s Chilean branch in Santiago

Situated in Austria – but at home around the world. Founded in Grödig near Salzburg in Austria in 1977, SKIDATA currently operates in more than 90 countries with 23 subsidiaries. One of these branches is in Chile; more specifically in Santiago. Opened in 2009, its employees work in the departments of technical support, sales, project management, finance, administration and development. In addition to executing projects in Chile, SKIDATA employees are also responsible for support with regional partners in Latin America, for example in Mexico, Colombia and also for our new subsidiary in Uruguay.

Diego oversees the branch in Chile. As Area Manager for South America he especially enjoys the close contact with the SKIDATA headquarters as well as the variety that his responsibility-packed position brings with it: „We maintain continuous communication and have good knowledge exchange with the headquarters in Austria. In my job, no day is the same. The mix of clients from the areas of Car Access and People Access helps keep things exciting.“ Diego possesses profound technical knowledge and during his MBA study he acquired the skills necessary for a successful management career. During the course of his career, he has specialized in the areas of business development and the development of emerging markets.

The company“s values and philosophy also play an important role in his work:
„Our SKIDATA values help us to focus on what“s important and distinguish us from our competitors.“

SKIDATA technology in Latin America: shopping centers and ski resorts

Many different interesting projects have been realized in the Chile branch: the Aventura Plaza shopping center in Lechería (Venezuela) is one of many examples of shopping centers which have been equipped with SKIDATA technology. Thanks to modern parking management, security at the entrances and exits has been greatly improved.

The rapid growth in the shopping center sector continues: new malls and shopping centers are being built in Chile and many other Latin American countries, with great demand for professional parking solutions.

In addition to access solutions in the area of Car Access, SKIDATA has made a name for itself in Chilean ski resorts. In the El Colorado Andean ski resort, easily reachable from the capital Santiago, operators trust SKIDATA“S tried and tested access management systems and are familiar with the advantages of innovative technology from Austria. With Nevados de Chillan, SKIDATA equipped one of the Andes“ most significant ski regions with access technology tailor-made to meet requirements on-location.
To make these solutions a reality, we always seek motivated new employees interested in international work for various departments. Vacancies and job openings are regularly posted at http://www.skidata.com/en/career/open-positions.html

A revolutionary ski experience with SKIDATA

A revolutionary ski experience with SKIDATA

A revolutionary ski experience with SKIDATA

Enter the gondola lift safely and without stress: with EasyBoarding.Gate, the newest access solution from SKIDATA, it“s easy! The leading company for access solutions has developed a fully automated system for safe access to gondola ski lifts which is currently being tested in Salzburg“s Gasteinertal ski region together with Doppelmayr, the leading cable car specialist. Through intelligent access management, it is not only the gondola that is more convenient for individual visitors, but the efficiency of gondola operation is also improved.
For the success of this project, employees from various areas such as Hardware Design, Hardware Project Management and User Interface Design worked hand in hand. Thomas, Professional Services Manager at SKIDATA, says the following about this exciting project: „Out of a small idea grew a successful solution with plenty of initiative from the employees involved. Some new employees also worked on this project and took it on with a just-do-it approach.“

Ski pass purchase made easy

Wouldn“t it be great to spend a day of skiing in Kitzbühel and not only find the perfect conditions on the slopes but also get a discount on ski passes? With the innovative KitzSki Karte project, SKIDATA and the Bergbahn Kitzbühel make it possible! With this card and the corresponding swebtix ski app, you can easily and conveniently buy day passes using your smartphone. And the best part: the first 1,000 customers to purchase Bergbahn Kitzbühel day passes using the app received a 20% discount and could call up their personal elevation gain stats online, whenever and wherever they like. As a solution provider, SKIDATA is constantly developing more client-specific apps and setting new trends in access management. Helmut, Head of Competence Center Software, says the following about this project: „We published the innovative KitzSki Karte project just last week and all 1,000 passes are already gone. That shows the great interest in and acceptance of such unprecedented products and services. The swebtix ski app is available for Android and iPhone. It makes it possible to conveniently purchase ski passes through the app. This means guests can get right to the slopes without waiting at the cash registers in the ski resorts. The ski lift rides are made accessible to skiers in the form of personal stats, such as the number of rides or elevation gain. With our team we can work on such innovative ideas in the future and develop our existing products such as swebtix ski.“
