Swiss startup TrekkSoft, a provider of software solutions for tour and activity companies, has acquired Acteavo, an Ireland-based rival. Earlier this year, TrekkSoft raised a relatively small round of funding, but the company did not disclose how much it coughed up to reel in Acteavo.

Acteavo was founded in late 2013 in Dublin, also to provide self-service online booking tools to tour and activity operators, mainly in Ireland and the UK. The startup participated in the international accelerator Start-Up Chile and received investment from the Irish state agency, Enterprise Ireland.

Olan O’Sullivan, CEO of Acteavo, will join TrekkSoft’s team in Interlaken, Switzerland. His new employer now boasts 26 staff from 16 countries, and says its software is currently used by customers in 112 countries.

Founded in 2010, TrekkSoft has raised $3.4 million in total. Its acquisition of Acteavo again highlights Dublin's emergence as a serious hub for innovation in the travel tech sector.
