Serious About Fun
We’re in the business in delivering the best experience at clubs, theme parks and other high demand venues, getting users out of queues and into places quicker than anyone else.
We achieved this by building and maintaining iOS/Android apps. Our team of four are now transitioning to a PWA (Web) solution which controls the flow of visitors around venues and regulates the rate of entry into places, ensuring people have the best experience possible. We don’t want people dampening their leisure time standing in lines when they could easily be elsewhere enjoying themselves.
