Axess at Mountain Planet 2024 - focus on digitalization

More than 23,000 experts, including 2,900 international visitors from 71 countries, attended the trade fair from April 16-18, 2024 in Grenoble, France. We at Axess were also very satisfied with the 50th Mountain Planet. In addition to many French visitors, we were delighted to welcome visitors from the international mountain industry - including from North America, China and Japan. There was particularly strong interest in our digital products: first and foremost the Axess SKI WALLET app & BLE technology - the digital ski ticket on smartphones and the Axess WEBSTORE online store solution. Also the PAY PER USE software and the now automated LANE CONTROL MONITOR personnel control system. In the parking sector, our PAY MOBILE solution and the EV CHARGE charging station were successful market launches.

Axess France celebrates 25 years

25 years ago, Maurice Zinniger set up the world's first international branch of Axess in Annecy, France. Today, Axess France employs around 16 people, is one of the largest Axess locations outside of Austria and supplies not only ski resorts but also public swimming pools, museums plus fair and convention centers with state-of-the-art ticketing and access management solutions. Reasons enough to celebrate this success story in style! This took place together with 130 invited guests on the evening of April 17, 2024 at the Axess stand at Mountain Planet with a DJ, catering and in relaxed atmosphere.


The time has come for the digital ski ticket. After purchasing in the WEBSTORE, digital tickets can be saved directly on your cell phone in the Axess SKI WALLET app. The ticket is read at the gate while the smartphone stays in the jacket. Everything works just like with the previous chip card ticket - only now on your cell phone!


Online ticketing is increasingly becoming a matter of course. The Axess WEBSTORE is the central online point of sale where guests can easily and conveniently book tickets and services. The WEBSTORE can be fully integrated into existing websites, automatically adapts to different screen sizes and is perfectly linked to the Axess system.


The good old points card is a thing of the past, but Axess PAY PER USE opens up new opportunities for pricing and guest communication: the guest registers for a membership program in the web store, deposits their credit card and pays for each lift ride or service individually. Billing takes place later, the ski resort has an overview of all data and the guest receives regular information about offers and promotions. A classic win-win situation!


Passing on personalized ski tickets "under the table" to others no longer works with the Axess LANE CONTROL MONITOR. Why not? Because photos of ski pass holders are automatically compared at the access point. The system recognizes immediately if someone else uses the ski pass - and triggers an alarm. More control over the ski passes in circulation - and more turnover!

Products from the Axess PARKING range:


The trend towards e-vehicles has fully arrived in the parking lots of ski resorts. Axess EV CHARGE is a clever combined solution: It allows the guest to buy the authorization to charge the e-vehicle together with the ski ticket. In one simple process, without further billing and all with one card!


Parking tickets can also be paid quickly and securely via smartphone: Scan the QR code on the parking lot information board, go to the Axess MOBILE PAY website, scan the parking ticket using the cell phone camera and pay by credit card or online service. That's it. No need to go to the pay machine, no waiting - just drive out of the parking area as usual.
