Premiere for Mont Edouard!

Mont Edouard in Quebec in the southeast of Canada offers its guests a pleasant change in the middle of the Canadian mountains through various activities such as skiing, snowshoeing or ice skating. The ski resort is now relying on access systems from Axess to provide even more security for employees and guests.

The Canadian ski resort delights skiers especially with the exceptional snow conditions on site. On more than 30 slopes, winter sports enthusiasts of all abilities enjoy the unique powder snow and the impressive panorama to the fullest. The switch to Axess was part of the strategy to transform the resort into a four-season resort.

New Ticketing by Axess

The heart of the new system is the innovative ticketing solution from Axess. Guests can purchase their tickets online in the webshop and go directly to the lift on site. In addition, already used weekly or season tickets can be recharged after use. This not only eliminates waiting at a cash desk at the next ski day, but also reduces waste.

AX500 Smart Gates NG were installed throughout the area. The gate is particularly impressive with its flap arms, which allow quick and easy entry, as smaller objects such as bags or ski poles cannot get caught.

Versatile in use

In addition, Axess SMART PRINTERs 600 and Axess SMART PADs 600 support the staff at the cash registers on site. Besides its speed the SMART PRINTER 600 impresses above all with its slim design and functional diversity. The system prints, deletes, encodes and reads tickets in ISO 15693 and ISO 14443 formats in just one step. The SMART PAD 600 is used to read and write stored data from RFID chip cards and transponders. An integrated controller makes card verification a child’s play, both online and in stand-alone operation.

"We spent six months studying all the manufacturers of ticketing and access systems available in Quebec and internationally because we wanted to offer our guests a great outdoor experience within new health measures. The Axess team clearly stood out from the competition as they are the only company to offer a fully integrated solution. From the purchase of a ticket online to direct access to the lifts. We are proud of this new partnership and the joint project, which guarantees our guests a great sports and adventure day,"

Frédéric Blouin, Director of the resort.
