Big Wood „Большой Вудъявр“ in Kirovsk is located at the Arctic Circle, about 1 300 km or 1 ½ flight hours north of St. Petersburg. Due to its mountains with peaks of over 1,000 m it is one of the most famous ski resorts in Russia. Whether beginner or professional, visitors have 26,7 km of slopes at their disposal. Eight lifts can transport a maximum of 9250 people per hour.
After more than one year of preparation ГК „Большой Вудъявр“ and Axess signed a contract at Interalpin 2019 for the delivery of a complete „Axess Resort Management System“, including AX500 Smart POS Point of sale systems with the ticket printers Axess SMART PRINTER 600, AX500 Smart Gates NG and Axess PICK UP BOX 600.
In the area of software systems, all resort modules such as Axess RESORT.RENTAL, Axess RESORT.LOCKER, Axess WEBSHOP, Axess INSIGHT.APP and Axess RESORT.LESSONS will be used in addition to the Axess programs for cash registers, access control and reporting in order to guarantee the guests the best skiiing experience possible.
The new Axess RESORT.LESSONS software module offers Ski Resorts simple and time-saving management of the ski school. Due to the complete integration into the Axess system, the ski school is managed via a web-based interface. This means that ski school managers have all information about reservations and bookings at a glance and can quickly access all data.
Guests who book ski lessons can also choose between time, language and their ability. With the Axess INSTRUCTOR.APP, ski instructors receive all information regarding their courses, for example information about course participants and meeting points, conveniently on their smartphones.
Axess convinces by its quality and replaces in this project hardware systems and software solutions of other European suppliers, which could not meet the customer‘s requirements due to a lack of system integration in the past years. The innovative solutions from Axess have already been well received by customers and guests alike and are being received with positive expectations.
The teams from Axess Russia and Big Wood worked for a long time on the preparations fot the commissioning of the new system, but this should have paid off. In Kirovsk (south of Murmansk), the winter season starts at the beginning of October and lasts until the end of May, which is considerably longer than in Austria, for example, which should make ski enthusiasts especially happy.
