For the second year in a row, The Moodie Davitt Report has recognised AOE for its innovation in Travel Retail and rewarded the company with a Moodie for Best E- and M-Commerce. AOE won the award for transforming the Heathrow Boutique from a Reserve & Collect service into a digital omnichannel marketplace that combines flight information, shopping and airport services on a single platform. Heathrow Boutique is built on AOE’s award-winning Omnichannel Multi-Merchant Marketplace, or OM³.

Kian Gould, founder and CEO of AOE, said, “We are thrilled about our second consecutive Moodie Award. The award acknowledges our long-term efforts to help the industry to create new digital business models and sustainable non-aviation revenue streams. Travel Retail is undergoing dramatic changes and we believe our OM³ platform is ideally suited to meet these challenges.”

The Moodie for Best E- and M-Commerce “recognises the most effective use of e-commerce and mobile to achieve a specific marketing outcome within airport travel and retail environment.” According to The Moodie Davitt Report “this year’s winners represent a masterclass of digital innovation and excellence. They also underline some pivotal trends in the industry’s use of digital media.”

Awards were conferred in 21 categories, with the winners being chosen from 170 shortlisted finalists.

Combining expertise in cybersecurity: AOE launches subsidiary Bare.ID

WIESBADEN, August 09, 2021 - AOE, one of the world's leading service providers for digital transformation, headquartered in Wiesbaden, the capital of the German state of Hesse, is launching Bare.ID, a fully-managed-as-a-service identity, authentication and authorization solution. Hosted exclusively as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point in German data centers, the identity management solution administers a directory of identities (PII) and their access rights to the various applications. AOE guarantees the highest security standards and complies with German data protection regulations. Bare.ID serves as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point for application landscapes and connects all services via standard protocols such as OpenID Connect or SAML. Furthermore, Bare.ID manages information about the identities of users. These can either be maintained manually by the customer or can be connected via federation techniques to external identity sources such as an existing Active Directory or Identity and Access Management System at the customer's site, but also third party single sign-on systems. At the same time, Bare.ID enables customers to obtain an overview of accesses, login failures, insecure or expired passwords or orphaned accounts for their internal compliance reports and then also to integrate these into their own security incident event monitoring. IT departments can thus be sustainably supported and relieved in the creation and administration of user accounts – while adhering to company-internal compliance guidelines. Thanks to preconfigured applications, users can use Bare.ID without any specialist knowledge; the technical complexity and the security-relevant configurations are not visible to the user. The fact that the proper handling of personal data and business-critical information is no longer a voluntary option is well known. Bare.ID stores all data in daily backups highly secure alternatively in two data centers located in Germany. "Our participation in the initiatives "IT Security – Made in Germany", "Software Hosted in Germany" as well as Cloud Services – Made in Germany" are proof of trustworthy security solutions from AOE. Bare.ID thus complies with strict German data protection laws," says Steffen Ritter, Commercial Director Cybersecurity at AOE GmbH.
