Worldwide adventure tours
Exploring the world in all its diversity and expanding horizons: For more than 35 years, STA Travel has been turning these dreams into reality for the adventurous among us – with attractively priced flights, hotels, adventure travel and language trips. Founded in 1979 by two students in Australia, today’s company employs almost 2,000 people in around 60 countries. Aided by travel specialists in over 200 travel shops, more than two million people every year now set off on their very own discovery journeys. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland alone, more than 300 travel experts in over 70 branches provide individual travel adventures for their mostly young clientèle. Their working times are planned and managed with ATOSS Time Control.
The office managers are responsible for the planning and scheduling, a task they used to solve with spreadsheet software. All employees in Germany, Austria and Switzerland conveniently record their working times via PCs. Vacations and time corrections are also applied for in paperless form and processed and approved by their respective supervisors by means of multi-level workflows in the system. Working time accounts and the status of vacations can be called up in this way by both employees and supervisors, always right up-to-date and at any time – dispensing with administrative effort and tedious queries in the Human Resources department. This frees up more time for qualified advice. And precisely this is a genuine priority for this innovative company. At STA Travel, the idea is for everyone to find their very personal travel adventure – whether it's a round trip through the USA, work and travel in Australia, an Antarctic expedition or a night tour through Bangkok by bicycle.
