Tour and activity software platform Checkfront has secured its first major investment - bringing in almost $10 million in a Series A round.
The Canada-based company, which this year celebrates a decade of operations since its creation, received the round in a deal led by Framework Venture Partners.
PenderFund Capital Management and Conconi Growth Partners also participated in the investment.
Previous, much smaller rounds came in at CA$800,000 and CA$475,000 in November 2016 and March 2015 respectively.
Checkfront says the funds will be used on product development, hiring and expansion of its sales and marketing efforts.
CEO Jason Morehouse says: "We have always been fiercely independent, striving to keep the operator at the center of all we do, and we knew we needed to find a partner that support our values."
The company claims to be the leading independent booking platform in tours and activities, with 5,000 customers in more than 120 countries around the world.
