What does it do?
Pictaic is a payment platform. At its heart is the support to help you collect cash from your attendees. But of course it offers a lot more – it wouldn’t be our tech of the week if it didn’t. We particularly love the “crowd funding” aspect of the platform. We also love that in 2013 they announced a “pay what you feel” payment scheme – called FairPay. Like Wow! Picatic can be bolted on to established platforms which makes it much easier to get a quick handle on. It really does do a host of great things so check it out!
Who’s behind it?
Their whole team based in Vancouver. They have a proper engaged startup approach to the platform. As a team they are always dreaming up new ways to empower “Eventrepreneurs” [a real word they use internally] empowering organisers with technology tools for event success. While having a lot of fun by the looks of it.
How did it get here?
With the introduction of a Pro version their story is the standard successful startup trajectory. Set up the platform, get some traction, validate the platform and then monetise. And keep all your customers and add new ones of course.
What does it look like?
Rather than try to cover this, I’ve added a link to the their Pro option.
Why is it Gallus Events Event Tech of the week?
Having a great looking payment platform that also helps you manage your events is crucial for almost all event planners. When we saw they had released a pro model we wanted to highlight the improvements. Also when they write ebooks entitled: Shit You Should Know Before You Throw A Bitchin’ Event and have say this on their website: “Be part of a team that gets shit done and has fun doing it” they are always going to float our boat.
