Story

We’ve grown through our experience from wine and gastro events and learnt from our mistakes. We’ve also successfully expanded to the music industry and understood that organisers, salesmen and visitors are of the same importance. That’s why, for all of them, we’re trying to create an interface that will help them enjoy the event to the fullest. Our flight isn’t a short distance one and we keep speeding up, simplifying and innovating. For the first half of 2021, we had no idea what to expect, but in the end we’ve reached 125 events. 2022 will be our most ambitious season yet–our company is headed to 260 events. The journey has just begun!

A Journey Through Time

2014
Difficult beginnings

Vašek Jaroš bought Macbook Pro for a prodigy developer named Martin Endler, so they can embark on some new projects together. He sold his car to do so.

2016
The technology is born

We’re coming up with the idea to use chip payments for our own event, the Rosé Wine Festival.

2016
June 6, 2016; 2pm, Třebíč Castle

The event begins. It seems like everything is ready, just Martin Endler, in an event tent, performs some final adjustments on the chip-charging app’s latest version.

2016
We need to do this differently

Our first event’s failure didn’t knock us down. Right the opposite–it gave us an out-of-this-galaxy motivation to do things differently and better. It was more experience than we could even wish for.

2017
First music event and the biggest food festival to date

The visitors loved the system right with the first music festival of the season and therefore we won other events shortly. At the end of summer, we managed to introduce our system at FoodParade in Prague, our biggest event yet.

2018
Fall preparations

In the fall, we started communicating with organisers on a large scale. We’re struggling with financing and going through some tough moments; we’re discussing some investment possibilities.

2019
A year of hope and NFCtron Plus

We managed 92 events and with some of them we hit rock bottom. During the fall we were planning the 2020 season and preparing for 210 events we had confirmed. In December we’re launching the NFCtron Plus app, in which organisers and salesmen can connect.

2020
NFCtron Pass is launched

In the fall, salesmen and organisers were already using NFCtron Plus and in December we launched a new product–NFCtron Pass, using which organisers can manage selling the tickets and visitors can recharge their credits. The first event where NFCtron Pass was used was the amazing Fajtfest.

2022
Big things are coming

In 2022, we’re headed to 260 events, where we’ll introduce the new selling app, and, most importantly, the new web app called NFCtron Hub.

2015
Inspiration’s coming

A project called Čerstvá sváča was created; its goal was to supply children in schools with good quality snacks. Serving the snacks was handled by chip payments.

2016
The first version of NFCtron is created

In only three months, in a rocket-like speed, we’ve developed an online payment solution for events and started discovering the secrets of the whole online chip payment concept.

2016
June 6, 2016; 2:30pm, Třebíč Castle

The visitors are waiting in a 250-metre-long line. The only working cash desk is in Martin Endler’s computer. Payments are slow and unstable. The disadvantages of handling things online are becoming apparent.

2017
Rosé Wine Festival again

Our spring campaign peaked at the Rosé Wine Festival, which went amazing. During a short time, several organisers approached us, and, as it turned out later, our steps had a much bigger impact than we’d thought.

2018
Going all in

4 weeks before their event, we were approached by SÁZAVAFEST and we found out how important our 2017 steps had been. In summer we’re establishing NFCtron a.s.

2019
180-degree turn

The project was joined by Libor Němeček and we received the financial support we needed to introduce our system at the dozens of events we had confirmed.

2020
The Covid season

Then the Covid came and out of 210 events, only 40 could take place. Our all-star team was forced to get smaller, but we embarked on some intensive development and moved our system to another galaxy.

2021
Aiming high

We managed to get some of the biggest Czech events’ confidence and even though the season was shorter, we reached 125 events and festivals. At the same time, we carried on improving the payment system, NFCtron Plus and NFCtron Pass as well.
