NI Deathtech Solutions Provider PlotBox Announces Capital Investment Success

  • PlotBox, the leading software solutions provider to cemeteries and crematoria, has announced a £5m capital investment led by Guinness Ventures, with some existing investors, including Edinburgh-based firm Par Equity, also participating in the round.

    Headquartered in Northern Ireland with offices in the United States and Australia, PlotBox has grown over the last decade from multi-award-winning startup, to become the leading digital transformation partner of choice for deathcare service providers across the globe.

    Founded in 2014 by husband and wife team Sean and Leona McAllister, PlotBox has pioneered the integration of high-resolution drone mapping imagery, geographical information systems, cloud-based software, and cemetery records - innovations that facilitate cemeteries and crematoria to operate to world-class standards.
