Kazakhstan relies on Axess
The ski resort in Shymbulak is the larg¬est in Kazakhstan and with a capacity of 15,000 visitors also the most visited in the whole country.
The prestige project is located only 15km south of Almaty and is in operation all year round. It is the figurehead of Kazakhstan when it comes to ski resorts. Shymbulak stands for the modern Kazakhstan and sets a calling sign for tourism. The am¬bition to equip the ski resort with the latest access & ticketing technology rein¬forces the ambitions of the operators.
From project to location
Due to the great demand and the start of this major project, Axess AG decided to establish a branch office in Kazakhstan. In total 26 AX500 Smart Gates NG with flap module, 11 Axess PARKING and 10 Axess SMART POS were installed in Shymbulak. The fully integrated sports equipment rental, the ski and snow¬board school program and the locker system complete the customer-friendly service offer. Of course, all services as well as tickets can be booked comfort¬ably from home via internet. Thanks to the RESORT.SOLUTIONS from Axess, the turnover of the ski resort was in¬creased by 60%. Shymbulak is one of the showcase projects when it comes to integrating the Axess WEBSHOP.
The modern gates are not only charac¬terized by their robustness, but also by their intelligence, which enables them to communicate with each other and thus integrate them into a smart system. The in¬telligent POS solution SMART POS, on the other hand, enables a fast card issue and a secure payment management efficient processing. Manager of the new Axess branch, Alexey Domnitskiy says about this opportunity: „Right now in Ka-zakhstan there is a construction of new resorts as well as entertainment possibilities, these facilities require a good ticketing system with the good hardware. I believe that there is gre¬at potential here and to be honest may I like our products a lot. Ever since 2016, I‘ve wanted to upgrade Axess systems the Kazakhstan market, as I have been working with them since 2011.“
At the moment the team on site is still small, but that could change soon. After all, the tourism market in Kazakhstan‘s ski resorts has great potential and thus offers enormous project opportunities. After Kok Tobe and three other areas, Axess was able to win a new major cus¬tomer in the tourism sector in the Almaty area this year.
