What do Paytronix, the iPod, Wikipedia, and digital satellite radio have in common?
They’re all awesome things that were invented in 2001.
Back then, a younger version of Andrew Robbins and Matt d’Arbeloff (imagine golf shirts, pleated khakis, and Matt with more hair) had a vision to develop loyalty and payment technology that would define the industry’s best practices.
Today, their vision has become reality. Paytronix handles billions of transactions from millions of restaurant patrons nationwide.
Andrew and Matt are typically humble when speaking about their role in the company’s origin – what they revel in is the team of multitalented, quirky individuals who make Paytronix the industry-leading company it is.
While we’re serious about our work, measuring transactions by the millisecond and fretting over the outliers that take more than two seconds, we try not to take ourselves too seriously.
It’s not surprising that conversations about endangered amphibians, the latest video game innovations, and personal restaurant experiences creep into our meetings on a regular basis. When you assemble a group of intellectually gifted, imaginative, and inquisitive people like the team here at Paytronix, the conversations never cease to be interesting.
Our daily collaboration sessions involve brainstorming, cajoling, storytelling, laughing, and the occasional fall from a chair. An energetic flow of ideas ultimately produces innovative features focused on strengthening the bond we help create between restaurants and their guests.
At the end of the day, the guest experience, line speed, and accuracy are the true tests for our loyalty innovations.
