The Beginning

Realising the potential of digitising the events industry in 2014, we developed a cashless solution to record and smoothen cash transactions for event organizers.

After the success of several collaborations, the demands for this solution increased, and we soldered on to become the chosen technology provider for events. Access Control, Brand Activation and Analytics were added as part of our services.


1st Office in Jakarta

The successful launch of our office in Jakarta and the first ever cashless event in Indonesia was dubbed, “Invasion 2015”.


1st Expansion

In 2016, we continued our expansion to Singapore and Thailand and Hong Kong. We also launched our ticketing system to provide a one stop solution for Ticketing, Access Control, Cashless Payments, Brand Activation and Analytics.
