UK-based travel booking app RezKit has raised £250,000 from Jenson Funding Partners.
Founded during the pandemic by Matt Illston, who has worked in the travel industry for 25 years, the app was developed to tackle the issue of integration of systems in the travel booking industry. The SaaS platform runs on a series of APIs which allows third-party app developers, travel company technical teams and CRMs integrate with the system.
“The pandemic was incredibly tough for the whole travel industry. Rather than scale back operations to save money, we invested heavily in new and emerging technologies. The patience and hard work is finally beginning to pay off. In 2023, we have our first clients onboarded, more in the pipeline and new and exciting integrations being developed. The icing on the cake was when we secured funding through Jenson Funding Partners - this, along with our growing revenues from the system, will enable us to develop our brand and invest in extending the technical team further,” says Illston.
“The company stood out as it used the downtime of the pandemic to take a deeper look at the issue and develop a solution that brings the industry more in line with others that rely on SaaS platforms,” says Sarah Barber, CEO of Jenson Funding Partners. “It was clear that Matt and the team had the first-hand experience of working in travel over the last few decades and can help steer RezKit towards becoming a platform of choice for so many businesses in the industry.”
