Fassernate, now the applications final name, was dreamed of by Mr. Elton Fasser the CEO of Eltovision Pty Ltd. Circumstances, both financial, as well as access to recources, prevented this dream from taking shape untill 2017. The application was first released in March 2021. There was lessons learned and a complete redesign took place. Fassernate was re-released in March 2022. It is approaching 1000 downloads in only 3 months.
Mr. Fasser used the experience gained spanning over more than 25 years in Information Technology to build Fassernate. Mr. Fasser comes from very humble beginnings, born in the Western Coloured Township in Johannesburg, the name was later changed to Westbury. He’s worked for various large companies over the years in various different sectors. In 2019 Eltovision Pty Ltd. was formally registered. The name is a play on Elton and his vision.
Fassernate is an empowering application, first and foremost. It was build to put the power in the hands of those who have been ignored, who cannot afford it, who never thought it was possible and those who never thought of it before. Mr. Fasser believes very little is being done to build and transform business into sustainable businesses for the future.
Surely with technology we can better if not completely solve some of our most common challenges. This means we have to think and start doing things differently.
There was more than enough evidence that a mobile application would be the best possible solution to fix a lot of problems.
One such problem, lunchtime. Every lunchtime, people rush to stores, caravans, stalls to get food. Soon there is a long line of people waiting to be served. Here is where the problem lies. The owner is under pressure to try and serve everyone as quickly as possible, most times they work alone, sometimes they have help. Lunchtime is, in most cases is 45 minutes long. Good luck if you in the back of the queue. The owner ends up losing out on a couple of sales, some workers go back to the work hungry. Fassernate not only solves this problem, but it creates more opportunities. What if people could pre-order, even pay for food upfront? The owner now has more time to prepare the food, could even employ someone to do deliveries, not under as much pressure. No one needs to go back to work hungry, instead of standing in a queue, they have more time to enjoy food and socialise. Problem solved.
What if we could connect everything though? A gogo(granny) walks all the way to the spaza to buy bread and milk just to find out, dololo. What if, she sits in her home, goes onto an app, orders her bread and milk, asks the spaza if they have stock, instead. Why stop there, what if the spaza, can order the bread and the milk from their local suppliers, directly from the app? Why stop there, what If we could oder anything, from anywhere, sell anything, anywhere? What if we could make booking from anywhere, anytime. What if we can make it so simple that anyone, regardless of education, experience or knowledge could create a business to start selling anything from products to services and everything in between? What if we provide them with tools to help build and better themselves?
This is Fassernate, welcome to a new dawn. We will connect everything.
