Yesterday we were able to welcome interested people from the water supply sector and industry in a webinar. Among other things, we presented the digital maintenance, the GIS module and the W12 / risk management. As a user from practice, we were able to welcome Carlos Pighin from Schlieren live in the studio and discuss various questions from the audience with him.

We were very pleased about the lively and active participation!

In Dotternhausen, a new lorry system is being built for Holcim (Süddeutschland) GmbH to transport the mining dismantling from the mine down to the cement works.

This system is maintained and documented with the Sambesi from the first day of operation.

Our forecast software KASSANDRA is preferably used for the number of guests. However, it is multifunctional and can also be used for business forecasts. For the first time, we were now able to apply this sales forecast to a customer in the catering industry. The Hotel Klausenpasshöhe, on the beautiful Klausen Pass, has a long tradition, but is progressively managed by a young couple of landlords. The KASSANDRA turnover forecast is used for the planning and management of the restaurant. The first tests were very successful and with KASSANDRA the business could start efficiently into the summer season 2020!

For the eighth time we were able to welcome our customers to the Sambesi Forum. This year, the majestic mountain Pilatus, near Lucerne, provided the perfect backdrop, for a total of 80 participants. As last year, we had presentations in 3 languages, covering the cable cars, water supply and infrastructure sectors. Various innovations in Sambesi gave the participants from Switzerland and Austria topics to exchange, enjoying at the same time, a good meal in the Queen Victoria Hall on the Pilatus.

Already for the second time we were allowed to invite our customers from Germany and Austria to the Sambesi Forum. This year we met in the middle of September in Vorarlberg, more precisely in the Propstei St. Gerold. The church educational and meeting facility Propstei was founded more than 1000 years ago and offered us a contemplative and inspiring atmosphere to talk about the news and "best practices" of SAMBESI. Our guests enjoyed an informative and instructive day in a special place.

With a fantastic weather we were able to welcome you at the “Zugersee Schiffahrt” in Zug for the seventh Sambesi Forum Switzerland. On the wonderful MS Rigi we presented Sambesi’s innovations and also introduced our new product Kassandra. Approximately 70 participants listened to the interesting presentations, which were held for the first time in the three national languages German, Italian and French. We also had in Zug, for the first time, a separate group of water suppliers who discussed their specific needs on a smaller scale. All parties will remember the round trip on a sunny day with lunch on the lake.

For the first time this year, we were able to hold a Sambesi Forum especially for our customers from Germany and Austria, as we have been organizing it since several years in Switzerland. The chosen place was the Predigtstuhlbahn in Bad Reichenhall. In a cozy atmosphere, we were able to present to the approximately 25 cable car professionals the latest developments of our maintenance software Sambesi. In particular, the module for the slope and rescue service was received with great interest. The tour through the installation of the Predigtstuhlbahn was impressive and has shown why the ropeway technology has lost nothing in our fascinating digital world.

The beautiful and honorable Grand Hotel Giessbach on Lake Brienz was the scene of this year's Sambezi Forum. In front of 50 interested participants from all over Switzerland, we were able to present live the latest features of Sambezi and discuss future developments. For the challenge of maintenance in the field of summer activities, we were able to present practical solutions with the aid of NFC identification and are pleased to note that there are apparently no limits to the possible uses of Sambesi.

Remec AG has been represented in Austria by Alexander Brandtner for over a year now. Success is also set in Austria now. Just in time for Interalpin 2017, the cable car Komperdell GmbH in Serfaus has chosen an absolute top destination for our maintenance solution Sambesi. We look forward to the joint implementation of the project.

The use of Sambesi has long outgrown cable cars. Especially with water supplies and proof of quality assurance, the advantages of our documentation software are particularly effective. In our new brochure you will find out the most important reasons why your water supply should be documented with the help of Sambesi.
