Grödig, April 9th, 2015 With the installation of a parking system in ´s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, SKIDATA has now equipped 7,000 parking facilities with its solutions worldwide.

7,000 parking customers in over 90 countries. Originating from an innovative idea, the Salzburg company is today one of the world's leading solution providers for professional vehicle access management.

The success story of SKIDATA began in 1977 with the invention of the first access systems for ski resorts. Building on this, the portfolio was expanded in 1985 to vehicle access management, and just three years later the first SKIDATA parking system was installed in Vienna, Austria. The first major successes appeared a little later: In 1992, SKIDATA took over the parking management for one of the largest airports in the world, the Munich Airport, which still trusts in the know-how of the access expert.

In less than two years, SKIDATA was able to increase its parking system installations from 6,000 to 7,000. This week was the celebration of the 7,000th facility, which is a multi-tenant office building with 518 parking spaces, situated in ´s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands.
