AOE announced today that Auckland Airport is the second major airport to choose AOE’s award-winning OM³ suite, after the new platform’s successful initial deployment at Frankfurt Airport. The new platform is to create a truly connected customer experience for more than 19 million Passengers traveling to New Zealand yearly.

OM³, or Omnichannel Multi-Merchant Marketplace, is an extensive platform, which multi-retailer venues such as airports can use to digitalize their non-aviation revenues, thus providing their customers a comprehensive and seamless online and offline experience.

AOE will roll out a complex integrated platform for Auckland Airport that integrates their on-airport retailers and provides a fully integrated logistics solution to enable passengers who currently purchase off-airport duty free goods to collect them at the airport’s convenient collection points, while combining both the best of New Zealand- and global luxury brands as well as travel essentials.

The integration of parking, loyalty, lounge access and fast track features will convert Auckland Airport’s vision of the truly connected passenger experience into reality, proving that even an airport with less than 20 million passengers can create substantial revenue potentials through digitalization.

CEO / Auckland Airport
We are excited to partner with AOE and that Auckland Airport’s introduction of the technology will be a first for any airport in Australasia. It will ensure that we deliver one of the most advanced online airport retail experiences in the world and that we can significantly expand the range and type of products and services we offer to our customers.

AOE CEO Kian Gould comments, “We are thrilled to be Auckland Airport’s partner of choice on such an ambitious strategic initiative. The future of travel retail and non-aviation revenue lies in providing a unique customer experience with unsurpassed convenience. We strongly believe that this is the only way to prevent major disruption from the E-Commerce giants of the world. Auckland is one of the most innovative airports in the world and will continue to raise the bar for an optimal customer experience.”

Auckland Airport General Manager Retail and Commercial Richard Barker says, “It is exciting to be able to partner with AOE to create an Omnichannel commerce platform that further improves our customer experience.

“The online platform also means that international passengers can shop at any stage of their travel journey, using their own devices, and at a time and place that is convenient for them – be it before they leave home, onboard their aircraft using inflight Wi-Fi, or while sitting in any domestic or international airport.”

With more than 19 million passengers (as of December 2016), Auckland Airport is the largest and busiest airport in New Zealand. At the same time, the airport is one of the most important employers in the region. The airport, which has repeatedly been recognized as one of the world’s best airports, is also the destination of the two longest non-stop, long-haul flights on the planet.

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.
