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.
