Gigwapi is redefining the future of event listing and management with the launch of their new card called Gigwapi Card. Launched yesterday at the Nailab Start up Demo function attended by the Cabinet Secretary for ICT Dr. Fred Matiang’i, the Gigwapi card allows event organizers sell tickets, market their events online or through sms service.
What’s more, the cards containing your personal information can automatically integrate to your social media profile and update your followers on the event you are currently in. This brings in the necessary blend between cashless and seamless events payments on an integrated platform with a social aspect that even makes the card growth user driven.
“When we call our friends every Friday night to ask where the happening event is, we miss out on many other great events. With the Gigwapi card users can find events that are in line with their personal and professional interests,” said Kinyanjui Njonde, Gigwapi co-founder.
The Gigwapi start up partnered with Terrasoftworks Software to create this innovative and interactive product that will soon allow for cashless payment into events. Event organizers and brand sponsors stand to benefit from customer-driven brand visibility arising from the social media integration feature. The cards use Near Field Communication readers and scanners to allow users interact across various platforms.
The card gives users a cool way to share there current event activities, upload event pictures to the social media platform as well market brands and events being attended. The start up was incubated at Nailab, a Kenyan based technology incubator that seeks to lower the entry barriers for ICT entrepreneurs who want implement and scale their businesses and by extension spur the growth of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.
