SKIDATA has in­augu­rated a new world of ex­peri­ence to mark its 40th anni­versary: visi­tors can look for­ward to fas­cina­ting in­sights into the access manage­ment of the future across 450 square meters. Guests will use inter­active media to find out more about the fusion of the ana­logue and virtual world of SKIDATA solu­tions and experi­ence first-hand which oppor­tuni­ties are opened up.

We are very much looking for­ward to being a part of it with our depotmaxx solution. Together with our partner com­pany Paroli, we will be presen­ting our inno­vative and con­ve­nient depot system at the SKIDATA Experience World. This is charac­terised by versa­tile gate­ways and an easy-to-use user inter­face. Its mo­dular design means that it is espe­cially flexible and effi­cient in a wide variety of spa­ces to meet all customer needs.

We at digiCOM IT solutions have double the reason to cele­brate this year: our rentmaxx rental software is turning 20. But that’s not all! Our depot software depotmaxx is also cele­brating its 10th birthday. Not only are company founders Thomas Brutscher and Florian Haidl happy about this - the re­mai­ning 10 digiCOM asso­ciates and hun­dreds of satis­fied customers throughout Europe are also rejoicing.

It all started in 2007: at the Oberstdorfer Sports and Ski Shop belon­ging to Thomas Brutscher’s parents, the idea was born to develop soft­ware which would sig­ni­fi­cantly simp­lify the rental and sales process. The original plan to bring a simple POS soft­ware for ski rental opera­tions to the mar­ket quickly turned into a com­plete pro­duct port­folio, which now con­sists of POS, ad­minis­tration and bil­ling, cus­tomer check-in, as well as an online booking and depot system.

Our solid customer base includes several hundreds of sports and ski rental shops in Germany, Austria, northern Italy and Switzer­land. They range from small local rentals, which offer about 100 rental items, all the way up to major industry players with several thou­sands of products in their assort­ment.

Our anni­versary year will be heral­ded in February at the ISPO in Munich. But that’s still not all: in 2017, you can addi­tionally find us at the trade fairs ÖSFA in Salzburg, Prowinter in Bolzano/Bozen and INTERALPIN in Innsbruck.

After the newly introduced digiCOM rentmaxx software experienced a successful launch at Sport Lentsch in Jerzens in the Pitz Valley, the integration of the online booking platform Skirentalresorts.com soon followed suit. The shop for sports, fashion and ski rental, situated directly by the valley station of the Hochzeiger, has made a name for itself as a true ski boot specialist, among other things, and strongly focuses on service and quality. And that is exactly what digiCOM IT-Solutions has to offer.

The required interface was therefore implemented in a very short time and has been a reliable companion ever since. The clear benefit: the data from Skirentalresorts.com is automatically transferred to our software and can be used and further processed alongside the data from digiCOM rentmaxx online booking. This harmonisation of the individual workflows now facilitate the easy processing of all bookings made in the various online shops.

Paarsenn Sport has two stores in Davos, which offer a large selec­tion of perfectly prepared winter sports equip­ment. One ski rental shop is located at the Paarsenn bottom station and the other is right in the centre of Davos next to the train station and the Jakobs­horn bottom station. The franchisee of swissrent attaches great impor­tance to brand-new equipment and exclusive brands above all.

Managing Director Boris Bossi-Durisch has been using our digiCOM rentmaxx for a few weeks now and is ab­so­lute­ly thrilled with it: “Thank you very much for the seam­less im­ple­men­tation of rentmaxx at our facilities. All of our employees became acquainted with the software quickly and efficiently thanks to your support via the hotline as well as on-site, and are delighted with its advantages.“

The free rentmaxx Z-Value App is being con­tinu­ously de­veloped and im­proved.

For the current season, we have im­ple­men­ted the printing feature well known from the AndroidTM and Windows versions in iOS as well. The skier values cap­tured and ini­tial set­ting values (Z-value, DIN setting) cal­cu­lated for a ski binding can be sent di­rect­ly to any in­stalled printer. Cus­tomer names and addresses can also be provided.

But that’s not all – we have reworked the look and func­tio­nality of our App to ensure that you can receive the cal­cu­lated Z value for your binding on your smart­phone more quickly and easily.

The big day arrived on 22 October: The new 3S Eisgratbahn mountain lift with its large panoramic windows started on its first ride to the Stubai Glacier at 2,900 metres. Visitors to the ski resort can now enjoy shorter waiting times, state-of-the-art technology and plenty of additional comfort.

Advantages, which the ski depot at the bottom station can also offer. In cooperation with our partner Paroli, we have created a modern ski depot on site, where winter sports enthusiasts can conveniently store their ski equipment. The integrated drying and disinfection system provides an especially high level of comfort. 

The 142 spacious double lockers have been equipped with our digiCOM depotmaxx depot solution. Five installed depot clients with large touch screens offer a customer-friendly user interface and any key information for guests at any time.

The official opening of the ski depot has been planned for the beginning of December.

For some time now, digiCOM IT Solutions has been working with SKIDATA, the worldwide leading supplier of Access Solutions & Visitor Management for ski resorts and mountain lifts. The aim of the cooperation is to better link the ski rental, ski depot and access respectively ticketing areas. Not only operators can benefit from this, as they will be able to work more efficiently, but also guests for whom a ski holiday will become that much more comfortable.

The first joint project has already been completed, and a universal interface between various depot systems like digiCOM depotmaxx, GANTNER Electronic or Metra Inženiring has been created. Thanks to the interface, free depot places can be sold directly at the SKIDATA cash desk and the SKIDATA OPOS solution and the data immediately and secure transferred to the ski depot systems.

The integration of additional interfaces in the winter sports sector has already been planned and will be implemented shortly.

Along with our partner Paroli, we have expanded the Sport Stock ski depot in Kaltenbach with 1,700 new and modern depot places. Thanks to the easy and intuitive usability of the depot, winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy their ski holiday in Hochzillertal completely stress-free.

The spacious 2-set and 4-set ski lockers from Paroli have been equipped with our digiCOM depotmaxx depot system. An integrated system to dry and disinfect deposited winter sports equipment ensures especially high comfort. The resulting wastewater is transferred directly to the sewer system through an innovative stainless steel water drain.

An additional important decision criterion from the client’s viewpoint was the user-friendly control of digiCOM IT solutions, which are perfectly compatible with the existing rental software. The large touchscreens on the locker front make using the solution particularly easy for customers. In addition, there is the option of remote operation via Smartphone or Tablet-App.

digiCOM IT solutions is happy to an­nounce co­opera­tion with Fuchs Technik, one of the leading pro­viders of depot and drying systems. The first joint project has already been suc­cess­fully im­ple­mented: skiers at the Schöneben Ski Resort can benefit from a modern ski depot where they can safely store their equip­ment overnight right at the bottom station. 

Top-quality lockers and inno­vative drying facilities for shoes by Fuchs Technik installed at the new ski depot provide maxi­mum comfort. The lockers are opened, controlled and managed through our digiCOM depotmaxx depot software, which can be flexibly adap­ted to the re­quire­ments of the ski depot.

In December 2015, Sport 2000 Unterlercher opened its newest ski depot at the Spieljoch branch in Fügen, right next to the slope and the bottom station. The total package con­vinced the client all along the line: lockers by Paroli and our digiCOM depotmaxx depot manage­ment system.

The ge­ne­rous­ly de­signed double lockers with a width of 35 cm play a crucial role during the pur­chase deci­sion as well as drying and dis­infec­tion of the stored winter sports equip­ment, inclu­ding gloves and water drain directly into the sewer system.

An essen­tial feature was the possi­bility of gran­ting access to the depot area 24 hours a day using the autho­ri­sation manage­ment feature of depotmaxx door control. Depot lockers are rented out via the Wintersteiger soft­ware already being used by Sport 2000 Unterlercher. No problem thanks to our open inter­face.

OSMA TrocKNERsysteme

To manage its new ski depot at Goldeck Bergbahnen GmbH, OSMA TrocKNERsysteme GmbH and its client opted for the digiCOM depotmaxx depot software. The new depot lockers can be opened with a ski pass using one of the two customer terminals set up in the depot area. The sale and assignment of the depot slots is done directly at the ski pass sales window. The drying programmes which run overnight are individually adjusted to daily demand via the digiCOM depotmaxx management software.

Goldeck Bergbahnen managing director Josef Autischer was very pleased with the new acquisition towards the end of the winter season: "The depot management by digiCOM IT Solutions works absolutely problem-free with the OSMA lockers. We offer our guests a distinct advantage in terms of convenience!"

The successful beginning of our cooperation with Thaler Systems. When furnishing its new ski depot, the cable car company in San Vigilio di Marebbe chose depot lockers supplied by Thaler Systems. Thanks to its space-saving base, the newly developed roller shutter mechanism offers excellent use of space in the depot rooms.

To open the roller shutters and to control the ventilation system, the depot control software digiCOM depotmaxx comes into action. It can flexibly adapt to the requirements of the depot system. Card reader devices by Axess are installed at the checkout workstations and in the depot. Rental and management of depot lockers are processed using the digiCOM rentmaxx rental software.

Häfele Depot Lock Systems

New partnership between Häfele Depot Lock Systems and digiCOM rentmaxx on a new software interface development jointly by both firms. With this breakthrough, it's now possible to rent out depot lockers in a ski depot equipped with the Häfele depot lock system, all using the simple rentmaxx user interface.

Depot lockers can be assigned either automatically or manually by a worker at the cash desk. Rental times can be extended or cut short at any time. The interface also allows easy assignment of multiple ski passes to one locker, or one ski pass to multiple lockers.

The first location using the interface is the ski depot at the Intersport Strasser ski shop at the Rosenalm Lift (Zillertal Arena in Austria) - starting in December 2011.
