A personal success story

Peter Danz, Heinz Bircher-Nagy and Peter Kronegger founded Avance Pay in 2011. However, the story of this relatively young company already began 15 years prior to that date. In those days, Peter Danz was writing software solutions for electronic transaction systems at Ascom. A few years later he met Heinz Bircher-Nagy there, and they have been working together closely ever since. Their skills complemented each other perfectly. Together, they launched various product solutions, for example, in the field of electronic ticketing. Peter Kronegger supplied them with the hardware required. All three held each other in high esteem, both professionally and privately. They were confident that they would be more effective and successful running their own company - and they were right.

The first patent
They filed the first patent In May 2011 and founded Avance Pay shortly thereafter. Since then they have been working intensively on product development, customer acquisition and developing the current team. Pleased, and with some pride, Peter Danz and Heinz Bircher-Nagy describe the heart of their company in this way: "We grew up with together with Cashless Payment. It was an exciting time back then, when we decided to start our own business with our business ideas. Today we are glad to have taken this step and are happy to have so many customers who trust us.
