Singapore-based technology and distribution specialist BeMyGuest has announced a fresh injection of funds from its Series B round, coming largely from internal stakeholders, to bolster development in its home market of Asia.
The company also recently launched a SaaS platform to empower more operators with the ability to sell through those API-integrated partners.
Blanca Menchaca, CEO & co-founder of BeMyGuest, said: “The new funding will take the company through its next phase of growth including the launch of a number of progressive technological initiatives… We view this funding as compelling evidence of the confidence not only in our business, but also this industry, and the Asian region.”
She added that BeMyGuest has established “a unique and agnostic B2B position in Asia”, including “the most robust API platform” in the attractions, tours and activities vertical that support more than 50 integrations with the region’s biggest OTAs.
“We are committed to building on our unique model which combines strong distribution with a powerful API to some of the largest OTAs in markets such as Indonesia, China, Korea and Vietnam. We also empower operators with our SaaS platform so that they get affordable tech to connect to our distribution network as well as use for their own business opportunities.”
She said this unique approach is key in Asia where tech adoption is low among a large proportion of operators. “We want to empower more operators with tech so that the entire market grows and everyone wins.”
According to Menchaca, BeMyGuest has seen a doubling of its revenues for the fourth year running and is expected to maintain the rapid pace of growth this year.
