A team of over 225 employees rocks our IT in the ALPHA Retail Network. The new building to house our IT and other specialist departments was completed in Eberstalzell in Upper Austria in 2018. The work in the former warehouse with a floor space of 20,000 m² is all about digitisation, hardware and software. HOFER customers may think of IT in our stores, but the work goes much further. Our IT team also works to provide office staff with the necessary hardware and software and helps to build, support and update digital processes throughout the company.
Interface of business, science and research
The ALPHA Retail Network is our workshop of the future, where business, science and research come together. The premises include designated areas for cooperating with universities, offices for start-ups and sufficient space for internal HOFER events.
