Deutsche Messe will cancel CEBIT 2019 because of the declining visitor numbers and the continuing reduction in space bookings. The latest CEBIT concept consisted of an exhibition, conference and festival.
The announcement argues that the main message of CeBIT, which was held for the first time in 33 years, was the Digitization, but it has become a central topic to all other trade fairs since then, so the interest in Hannover's exhibit has decreased considerably.
At the beginning CeBIT was the most important IT event in the world, where Bill Gates introduced Windows 95 for the first time, and many more companies brought their products premiere also here.
As one of the world's foremost organizers of capital goods trade fairs, Deutsche Messe (Hannover, Germany) stages a rich array of events at venues in Germany and around the globe. Deutsche Messe ranks among Germany's top five tradeshow producers. The company's portfolio features such world-class events as CeMAT (intralogistics and supply chain management), Didacta (education), DOMOTEX (carpets and other floor coverings), HANNOVER MESSE (industrial technology), INTERSCHUTZ (fire prevention, disaster relief and safety & security), LABVOLUTION (lab technology) and LIGNA (woodworking, wood processing, forestry).
After long years it is hard to say goodbye because ONLINET has participated every year since 2001. Tamás Deutsch and the Hungarian government has taken efforts to help local companies to turn to be special guests on the next event, CEBIT 2019. We are grateful for the tons of experiences and fun and we happily remember back for this outstanding exhibition.
ONLINET participated in the HR Network conference organized by Dr. Bodó Training, where the main topics were the co-worker's affiliation and the retention of the staff. During the event we had a chance to discuss with many other managers about their own experiences and practices. We presented our own example, when the company took part in an anonymous survey that asked only two big questions from the employees: 1. Why do they like to work at ONLINET? 2. What kind of challanges they face lately at ONLINET? The uniqueness of the survey was that everyone could see the answers with anonymity and could rate all of them individually. The result became almost tangible and pointed both the positive and the neglected things out. The leading facts were the very good teamwork, the great working environment, and the flexible and humane management. At the end of the list, it turned out that there is a need for a vending machine supporting a more comfortable office space. Of course it’s provided since then!
European Utility Week is a 3-day event that was held between 6th November and 8th November in the Messe Wien Exhibition Congress Center in Vienna, Austria.

Thanks to the digitalization Smart cities are not fairy-tale any more. New smart city solutions are real now. It would be quite difficult to decode this concept as a whole, but there are products and services that might actually make our settlements smart. For instance, what would you think of an “advertising kiosk” that may not only have promoting purposes, but you could use it to make phone calls, manage your financial businesses, pay parking fees, or even identify a lost dog? This is not the future; this is happening now. We’re proud to present you an interview with Tibor Marczali (Managing Director of Onlinet Group Zrt.), introducing a new product, the Dokk Urban Station. He explains how this all could have come true, sharing his ideas about design and functionality, talks about actual market realization, implementations that have already took place and explains that there are almost infinite possibilities within the project. If you’re interested in the development or have any questions regarding the topic, please contact us, as we’d be happy to discuss all this with you!

Let us introduce you one of the latest novelties of ONLINET and it’s partners, our unique registration system which satisfies every needs. Three tennis tounaments organized in Hungary have already used the solution. The base of the system consists of an RFID (Radio-frequency identification) tag with memory and password and a central master database. During the accreditation on site you need only a low power RFID reader device which connects to the database on a computer via cabel, Wi-Fi or mobile internet. Pre-accreditation is also available by sending an invitation secured with password to the invitees, so they can upload their data to the system online. All the passes with the RFID tags can be personalized with unique identification, and thanks to this all the participants can be followed up electronically with the located checking points which scan the tag and communicate with the central database. The RFID readers work from appr. 6 meters away, therefore it’s even possible to track who arrives to the parking lot by car. The collected data can be extracted for reporting and statistical purposes in a user-friendly manner. In addition: the participants can use their RFID cards for parking or even in the cantin instead of having printed paper vouchers. The passes at the entrance can recharge and use it for pay at the on-site buffets, restaurants, shops or any other services skipping carrying cash. The three tennis events where our accreditation and participant management system was used: Hungarian Challenger Open 2017/2018, WTA Hungarian Ladies Open 2017, Gazprom Hungarian Open 2017.

Waiting long on customer service is never pleasant, and in such cases the client may become impatient and irritable. If the customer service acknowledges that regrettably someone had to wait long, but as a compensation, they please them – it can increase customer satisfaction. Therefore the CDS 5.3 client management system has a feature that allows a client to receive an SMS message with optional content - after a certain waiting time. For example, this system gives the opportunity to have a gift coffee from the machine in the waiting room, through the received code. This is just one of the several utilization opportunities.
Sofiyska Voda provides its services within the territory of the capital city of Bulgaria, and provides its services to more than 1,5 million people. Their main task is to maintain, operate and develop the water and sewerage system of Sofia - following the best engineering practices thus caring for the customers. Sofiyska Voda is permanently investing for the benefit of the city, this is the reason why the company chose the ONLINET Customer Service System.
The software development team did not rest during the summer, hence the customer calling system was expanded with a new, future-oriented service. Thanks to CDS version 5.3, it is already possible to pull SMS tickets on ticket publishers as well (instead of getting an electronical ticket only via Q-Saver mobile app). In this case, the customer receives the serial number in SMS instead of printing the serial number on the ticket publisher – even if the customers telephone number is given through the ticket publisher, the customer can receive the SMS automatically to that number. They are noticed about the expectants and also when the number of them falls below a certain level. In fact, if a certain amount of waiting time is exceeded, the system can give the customer priority, or can be provided a discount in an extra SMS.
