SAN FRANCISCO, July 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Vendini, the company that makes the business of live events simple with industry-leading software and services, announced that it has acquired the Brooklyn-based team from CHARGED.fm, the company that offered a state-of-the-art ticketing system for its customers, as well as website and app that housed both primary and secondary ticketing markets for patrons.
Vendini has integrated the core CHARGED.fm engineering team and will be using their extensive experience in the ticketing industry to enhance patron facing products along with building out internal infrastructure. This new talent will help build upon Vendini's all-in-one solution that includes marketing and donation tools, to CRM and reporting features, to mobile applications.
"The synergies between the team and the products the CHARGED.fm team developed are massive," said Robert Ayala, Managing Director, Corporate Development at Vendini. "We're really looking forward to integrating their knowhow and years of experience to continue to build products for our Members, along with their patrons."
CHARGED.fm was a brainchild of Plot Developers, a company founded by Yves Darbouze in 2002. After becoming the preferred developers for Universal Music Group, the boutique agency became known for their work with Sean "P-Diddy" Combs. After selling $108M in tickets for their customers, and reaching $17M in sales on their online marketplace to over 200 thousand customers, the company began speaking with potential buyers and landed with Vendini.
"We were getting offers from a lot of ticketing companies but we instantly liked Vendini's CEO & founder Mark Tacchi and the Vendini team," said Yves Darbouze, former CEO and founder of CHARGED.fm. "Mark sees the ticketing universe the same way that we do. We believed in him and the company he'd built, and are incredibly excited to bring the chemistry of the CHARGED.fm team to the Vendini family."
At Vendini, our mission is to make the business of live events simple. We designed our all-in-one system to help organizations easily promote events, deepen experiences with their audiences, and ultimately sell more tickets. Vendini is based in San Francisco, CA, with offices in Petaluma, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Boston, MA, New York, NY, Knoxville, TN and Vancouver, BC.
