On February 07th 2017 Advantage Austria, an initiative of the Austrian federal economic chamber foreign trade division, invited to the winter sport centre of skiing world championship host St. Moritz (Switzerland) for the „Austria Showcase: Alpine Freizeit – und Tourismusinfrastruktur”. This B2B information event was meant to help Austrian companies to build contact to the Swiss tourism industry to serve this promising market better.

Notable Austrian corporations got the chance to present to the specialised audience their business achievements. Through, the long standing and successful activity at the Swiss market, Peaksolution GmbH was classified by the organisers and industry professionals as especially valuable.

Peak solution’s vision is it to revolutionize the status quo of vacation booking by devoloping especially tailored platform solutions, where all products and services of a region can be marketed bundled. The talk was met with open-ears by the audience. Furthermore, Skiline’s standard to improve the slope experience through innovative entertainment offers (vertical meter service, Skimovie, Speedcheck, Photopoint etc.) generated interest.

The location of the event was fittingly; the Alpine Ski World Championships 2017 was the ideal stage for initial approaches of future business relationships. Numerous modernisation projects within Swiss winter sport regions are pending now and Austrian companies should take advantage of this business potential.

 

Wouldn’t it be practical if guests would be able to book their personal arrival with the train additionally to mountain railway tickets, lodging and other services? Tailored to personal needs, everything in one shopping basket and only one-time checkout. With Peaksolution that is possible!

The Swiss federal railways (SBB) have decided during their project “Sanierung Vertriebssystem”, to cooperate exclusively with Peaksolution for the development of the new business to partner interface (B2P V3.0). Peaksolution will be the first to implement the new interface and give the SBB valuable feedback and therefore decisively support the development. In return Peaksolution benefits by being the first service provider to be able to give the customers access to this new SBB service. The implementation will be carried out during the year 2017 and represents a win-win situation for all involved parties, especially the end customer.

In addition, all Swiss transport corporations, inclusive mountain railways, have the option to market public transport tickets to very attractive conditions on their portals through Peaksolution. Therefore, we have reached a substantial milestone: the travel to and from the slopes is seamlessly integrated via the SBB. This influences the customer journey positively, it’s a perfect service for the guest and one more reason to book in your one-stop-shop. The guest has no longer to stand the irritating search and the booking on several sites, he can do everything comfortable online with you. Of course, also better packages can be finalised and marketed.

Seat reservation like on the airplane: this functionality was desired by the Matterhorn-Gotthardbahn for the famous “Glacier Express”, which connects Zermatt and St. Moritz. Thereby, guests can reserve their favourite seat stress-free in advance to get the best possible view and enjoy the beautiful scenery from Valais to Grisons.

The technical challenge was, beside the complete relaunch of the website und the build-up of the sales solution, that there was no comparable system for trains in Switzerland. The adjustments of this project led to a direct increase in turnover.

There are already additional steps for the development of the solution planned. Customers will not only be able to book train tickets of the Glaciar Express, but also suitable amenities like hotels or ski passes alongside the railway track. More at shop.glacierexpress.ch

The Jungfraubahn, which belongs to one of the most famous mountain railways in the Alps, relies on Peaksolution already for many years. At the beginning of 2016 the decision was made to relaunch the website and the shop, which should move in the focus of their internet appearance even more.

Sales processes for train billets, packages, ski passes, lodging, ski rental etc. were revised and of course responsively implemented. Similarly, the usability and the design was improved with the assistance of knowledge from e-commerce tracking, to boost the conversion rate of the shop even more. The Jungfraubahn draws on the plentiful resources of Peaksolution and is marketing all the offers online on the shop. Within the first few weeks an increase in sales was achieved, particularly through the enhanced display on smartphones.

At the renowned Swiss winter sport centre Saas-Fee a daily ticket normally costs 72 Swiss francs (equivalent to 67 Euro). Winter sport fans had the chance to register for six weeks via a crowdfunding platform for a season card for just 222 francs (205 Euro).

Until November 27th 2016 over 90.000 interested people had already bought a ticket on the platform we-make-it-happen.ch. Overall 24 Mio Euro were generated before the season start.

Technical implementation by Peaksolution

Peaksolution worked with associate company Skiline already with the Saastal tourism successfully for some years. Saas-Fee set on the part of Skiline on numerous attractions including the Adrenalin Cup. Likewise, Saas-Fee distributed lodging and ski passes through Peaksolution. Therefore, it seemed obvious to entrust Peaksolution with the technical implementation of this innovative concept. The aim was to bring tourists back to the region, to make the ski vacation an experience and achieve a value increase for the region.

Up to 1 Million sales volume per day

The website we-make-it-happen.ch demonstrated Peaksolutions competence to carry out projects with an enormously high traffic. A sales volume of up to 1 Million was generated per day. Per hour a maximum of 10.000 users were on the site, which responded with good performance at any time. We-make-it-happen.ch is based on the proven and tested technology of Peaksolution, whereby the gained experience is fed in the shops of our customers. Besides an intelligent newsletter system, E-commerce tracking was applied to monitor the sales.

For the Swiss winter tourism, that was fighting with regressive numbers in the last years, this measure was an important sign. In addition, the whole region profited of the media offensive and the added value of the newly won guests. Due to the great success of the campaign it was extended until December 24th 2016.

The summer shop was relaunched to ensure optimal online sales for summer products and services offered by the Bergbahnen Chäserrugg. In it, customers can purchase hiking day passes for the entire Chäserrugg region that can be used at any of the region’s funicular railway stations. Naturally, the shop is fully responsive and adaptable to the Bergbahnen CI. We look forward to a successful summer season with our valued customer! shop.chaeserrugg.ch

Holidaymakers planning to travel on and around the Jungfraujoch can now go online to reserve a seat in advance. How it works: Peaksolution generates a Print@Home barcode ticket that the passenger presents at the station to obtain priority boarding – much like a priority lane at airports. While the accompanying turnstiles are provided by Axess, the access control itself occurs through Peaksolution, enabling Peaksolution to sell, produce and monitor tickets in a fully autonomous fashion – no need for a third party provider. What’s more, it’s not only turnstiles that can be connected via this new service, but other control equipment such as handheld devices. The new functional extension can be applied to other products and business processes as required – according to the needs and wishes of our customers!
