SKIDATA Announces Global Mutual Distribution Agreement with RTP, LLC (Resort Technology Partners)

Salzburg, Austria and Avon, Colorado - April 22 2008 SKIDATA AG, the leading international solution provider of ticketing and access control systems, announces the execution of a mutual global Value-Added Reseller Agreement with RTP, LLC (formerly known as Resort Technology Partners), a leading provider of resort management software and web solutions for the resort and recreation industries in the U.S.

Effective immediately, SKIDATA will offer RTPs resort management software, RTP|ONE, as part of its product portfolio outside the U.S. for the mountain resort and attractions market. RTP will begin selling the combined solution, which integrates its software seamlessly with proven SKIDATA Freemotion technology, in the North American market later this year.

Known primarily for its award-winning access gate, the SKIDATA Freemotion solution is specifically designed for maximum guest convenience with fully handsfree access. The RFID-based SKIDATA solution enables operators to improve guest management and profitability through the support of multiple sales channels and improved security protection.

RTPs leading resort management software is designed to optimize the guest experience by managing every guest touch point interaction. This includes everything from lift tickets to food and beverage, sports equipment rental, ski instruction, activity management, and many other guest services, as well as the integration of third-party systems, such as property management systems, central reservation systems, and other guest facing systems.



Bringing together the best of the SKIDATA and RTP product portfolios, the combined solution is uniquely suited to meet the demand from the resort and recreation industry to automate the entire guest cycle - including vacation planning, eCommerce, admissions/access control, and point-of-sale.

This partnership strengthens our presence in the North American mountain resort market and marks an important step in our overall growth strategy, says Charles Egli, CEO of SKIDATA, There is tremendous opportunity for both companies by expanding our respective product portfolios. Customers of both companies will benefit from having the best automated access control and resort management solution available for resort and recreation businesses worldwide.
