Career events with SKIDATA in autumn 2017

Meet SKIDATA at the career events in autumn

Career events are a great opportunity for young professionals and people re-entering the workforce to meet and talk to potential employers. Ultimately, there is more to every applicant and every company than meets the eye. For this reason, SKIDATA travels through Austria to give graduates and high potentials a closer look at the company.

It doesn“t do anyone justice to look at a person or a company only on paper. A real meeting is often much more telling than a job application or brochure. Career fairs are therefore an excellent opportunity for both sides that can open doors and make decisions easier. SKIDATA is again proud to participate in numerous job fairs and career events in Austria in the fall of 2017 to meet enthusiastic recruits and share information about careers at SKIDATA.

SKIDATA boasts a wide range of departments including finance, sales and communications. At the same time, the global leader in access and visitor management also has many career opportunities in IT and technology. No matter if you are in software or hardware development, mechatronics, electronics, accounting or controlling – SKIDATA offers exciting possibilities with international perspectives in every area. Thanks to continued growth, SKIDATA hires new employees in Austria and around the globe every year.
„At career events, we seize the opportunity to network and introduce our company and work at SKIDATA. Our corporate culture is best conveyed through personal discussions,“ says Barbara, recruiting specialist at SKIDATA. „After all, it has to work for both sides, ideally for a long time.“

SKIDATA career events in fall 2017
Starting in October, SKIDATA will once again head on their tour of universities, career fairs and informational career events. The „Karriereforum Lehre“ („Apprenticeship Career Forum“) took place in Salzburg this September and the following events are coming up quickly:

40 years of SKIDATA: ceremony for the company´s anniversary

From start-up to global player thanks to the power of innovation and SKIDATA staff´s dedication

40 years of SKIDATA: ceremony for the company´s anniversary

40 years of SKIDATA: ceremony for the company´s anniversary

SKIDATA celebrated its 40th anniversary on September 15, 2017. Numerous guests, including guests of honor Günther Walcher (founder of SKIDATA) and Governor of Salzburg Dr. Wilfried Haslauer, attended the anniversary party to celebrate this global leader in access management and visitor management. The event was marked with a celebration and the opening of the SKIDATA World of Experience at the SKIDATA headquarters in Grödig near Salzburg, Austria. SKIDATA has transformed from a Salzburg-based start-up to a growing global player with around 1,350 staff around the world. „It is no coincidence that we continue to grow successfully; rather, it is largely the result of the power of innovation and dedication of our team,“ explained Hugo Rohner, CEO of SKIDATA AG.

From airports to soccer stadiums and 80% of the world´s ski resorts: around the globe, operators rely on the technology, expertise and quality they get from SKIDATA. The company´s success story began 40 years ago. In 1977, SKIDATA founder Günther Walcher developed the first printed ski ticket and first electronic register – milestones in the history of mountain sports regions. The former start-up has grown into a global player and international leader in the field of access and visitor management.

SKIDATA: responsible management and long-standing staff loyalty
SKIDATA´s development was also recognized by Governor of Salzburg Dr. Wilfried Haslauer: „SKIDATA is an innovative model company that, in Salzburg alone, employs 400 staff and has hired 60 new employees in the last year. The company´s good and responsible management is reflected, among other things, by an above-average employee retention rate. The company is also especially active in the training of apprentices.“ On behalf of the State of Salzburg, Dr. Haslauer congratulated the company on its anniversary and impressive success story.

Johann Präauer has been with SKIDATA for 35 years and is one of many examples of the company´s above-average employee retention rate. „I have had so many opportunities to grow at SKIDATA. Even after such a long time, I still get so many exciting perspectives and I think it is just great. I started as a field service technician and am currently in the electronic development department. I especially appreciate the friendly teamwork at the company, the fast decision paths and the flexible working hours. All of this contributes to why I have enjoyed working at SKIDATA for 35 years,“ says Johann, SKIDATA employee since 1982.

Innovation & expansion mean job creation at SKIDATA
Over the past four decades, additional business units, innovative solutions and dedicated employees have joined the company. The portfolio has grown to include RFID chips for contactless entry, parking management, and solutions for stadiums, amusement parks and exhibition centers. Over the years, the distribution network has also grown. Today, SKIDATA is represented by 26 subsidiaries, five joint ventures and more than 10,000 installations in over 100 countries. Around the world, approximately 1,350 employees play a role in the company´s success. A large network around the globe means that SKIDATA offers attractive national and international career and development paths. SKIDATA is always looking for new talented team members for all departments. Plenty of interesting jobs are available in an international setting. Job vacancies are frequently posted on https://www.skidata.com/en/corporate/jobs-careers/

Opening of the SKIDATA World of Experience: a digital showroom for customers and applicants
Another highlight of the anniversary celebration was the opening of the 450m2 World of Experience. This digital showroom was officially opened by Governor Dr. Wilfried Haslauer. „The SKIDATA World of Experience gives our customers a great look at where SKIDATA is now, and where it is headed for the future. The showroom brings together the analogue and digital worlds of SKIDATA solutions in an impressive way,“ explained Hugo Rohner on the inaugural tour with guests from politics and business.

How does one manage the admission of 50,000 visitors into a stadium? What goes on in a control center that monitors hundreds of parking garages? Customers can experience all of this and more up-close in the showroom. The SKIDATA World of Experience also gives applicants and students the opportunity to learn more about the company and its innovative products on a tour.

SKIDATA keynote speech at the R&D Flagship Conference in Munich

An issue for the future: digitalization and networking

SKIDATA keynote speech at the R&D Flagship Conference in Munich

SKIDATA keynote speech at the R&D Flagship Conference in Munich

The R&D Flagship Conference was held in Munich´s BMW Welt on July 30, 2017. The focus of the conference was „Digitalization and Networking“ and this was the topic of discussion among leading experts from various tech companies – including Frank Lorenz, SKIDATA´s Senior Vice President of Research & Development. The guest list also included companies such as BMW, Bosch, Airbus, MAN and many more.

Keynote speech on megatrends and the influence of digitalization

Frank Lorenz immediately posed a provocative question: „Will we lose significant parts of our value chain and therefore our sales through „uberization“ and large tech companies?“ Lorenz´s keynote speech ranged from relevant megatrends to strategic options and the question: „How are we dealing with these challenges at SKIDATA?“

Experts addressed megatrends such as

– global mobile networking,
– permanent access to information and entertainment,
– the „Internet of Things“,
– social media and Web 2.0,
– multi-channel retail,
– and cloud-computing and big data.

It is exactly these trends that will drive forth digitalization in society and industry in the future. These topics have also long been a focus at SKIDATA.

Opportunities and risk of increasing digitalization and networking

In addition to defining the future megatrends and their impact on the digitalization of society, the following question was examined: how should industry and R&D departments react? The industry expert is of the opinion that in the future, investments in the area of e-commerce for B2C as well as B2B will be even more necessary as a dominant sales channel. Lorenz also believes that an increase in efficiency in one´s own business or B2B customers will be possible mainly through business process optimization. In addition, more priority will be placed on the topics of centralization and access to business data at any time. Further to the points already mentioned, Lorenz sees the following as essential:

– cloud-based management of the installed basis of systems and machinery;
– digitalization of payment processes and mobile payment methods (Apple Pay, Google Wallet, M-Pesa, WeChat, etc.);
– preparation for gradual digitalization of our currencies;
– and development of mobile commerce solutions and the availability of business data at any time on mobile devices.

Regarding risks, Lorenz focused on cyber security. According to the expert, all companies must make every effort to protect their own business and customers. „In particular, the first generation of IoT devices with very weak security mechanisms can cause a lot of damage. For example, by hacking hundreds of thousands of these devices to perform massive, dispersed attacks against critical infrastructure and institutions,“ said Lorenz.

Lorenz closed his keynote speech at the R&D Flagship Conference on a reassuringly positive and confident note: „Digitalization and networking is coming – let us shape them and take advantage of the opportunities!“

Interested in moving digitalization forward at SKIDATA?

Topics like the ones presented at the conference make technology fans´ hearts skip a beat – and SKIDATA has plenty of great job opportunities in R&D. Take a closer look at the wide range of assignments here: https://www.skidata.com/en/corporate/jobs-careers/job-vacancies-at-skidata/

How can you get young people excited about studying IT? What can you do to counteract the acute deficit of IT specialists in Austria? And how can you best support IT students to get started in their career? These and many other questions were asked by the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences and the Information Technology & System Management booster club with their many renowned Salzburg-based IT companies. And the answers came in the form of an innovative study package: ITSalzburg//study.work.support – a sponsored course of study at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences including a guaranteed part-time position.

„Exploring new horizons is a part of everyday life at SKIDATA and we are very interested in training qualified and motivated IT and software talents in-house. So for us it was clear that we – as an innovative Salzburg IT company – would be a part of this pilot project,“ says Frank, Senior Vice President of R&D at SKIDATA, about this new study package. This combination of paid part-time work and sponsored IT education program aims to motivate more qualified young people to study Information Technology & System Management at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences.

IT specialist training for Salzburg

The goal of this program is to strengthen Salzburg as an IT hub. Here’s how this new IT study package creates the ideal conditions for future IT students in Salzburg: covered tuition costs, rent subsidies, a paid part-time position in one of the IT companies that belong to the booster club and valuable contacts in Salzburg’s IT world. These are the perfect conditions to master your job and studies and to immediately apply the things you have learned. With the ITSalzburg//study.work.support pilot project, future IT experts will be integrated into Salzburg’s IT working world from the time they start their IT studies.

Attractive sponsorships for students with part-time work at SKIDATA

As part of this IT study package, approximately 20 first-semester students on the full-time Information Technology & System Management Bachelor course at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences receive financial and moral support. After being accepted onto their program, these future IT students can apply for a part-time job at participating IT companies such as SKIDATA. Prospective applicants should possess previous technical knowledge and enthusiasm for IT.

SKIDATA digitalizes lift ticket sales – say goodbye to long lines at the lift

„Starjack“: new online sales portal for lift tickets features IT expertise from SKIDATA

SKIDATA digitalizes lift ticket sales - say goodbye to long lines at the lift

SKIDATA digitalizes lift ticket sales

The cooperation between SKIDATA and Pool Alpin is revolutionizing online lift ticket sales. IT expertise, software and hardware from SKIDATA together with the new „Starjack“ online platform make purchasing ski tickets on the internet a breeze, thus ushering in a new era without long waits at the ski lift. A total of 70 Austrian ski resorts have joined the online platform to date. „Our goal was to standardize online lift ticket sales throughout Austria, making it as convenient as possible for customers,“ says Franz Holzer, managing director of SKIDATA Austria.

After a two-year test phase in the Kitzbühel ski region, the new booking platform for lift tickets has been online since November 2016. The great reception by 2,500 customers all over Europe proves SKIDATA right: the process of purchasing ski passes urgently needed to be improved and digitalized. Innovative ideas and technical development from SKIDATA“s IT experts made this step possible.

Hit the slopes quickly and safely thanks to SKIDATA technology

„Starjack“ offers many advantages: a large selection (since so many Austrian ski resorts participate) and faster, easier lift ticket purchases. Plus there is just one single keycard – the Starjack Card – that is valid for all ski resorts. All of these factors mean fewer skiers buy their ski pass at the lift; the keycard is activated upon first entry to the ski resort – meaning shorter lines in the future.

Another essential aspect of the new online ticket portal is safety. In the past, skiers and snowboarders were anonymous but now they are registered with the Starjack Card. „If there is an accident, personal details can be called up to allow for fast, trouble-free assistance.“ SKIDATA Austria managing director Franz Holzer is convinced: „Ski slopes will be a much safer place.“

IT for everyday life – innovation and development at SKIDATA

„Starjack“ is just one of many innovative projects that have been developed by SKIDATA“s IT specialists. A career in Application Services could be perfect for you if you“d like to work together with prestigious clients in Austrian ski resorts.
