A travel technology software provider and consultancy working with airlines to enhance their digital retailing capabilities has secured £5 million investment.

Founded in 2013 and headquartered in London, Branchspace allows clients to create and manage personalised, data-driven digital commerce experiences. 

It provides solutions across the entire tech stack including solutions architecture, digital performance reviews and UX/UI experience design, alongside a booking and conversion engine and retailing software platform called Triplake.

The £5m from Gresham House Ventures marks the first institutional investment into the company. 

“With Gresham House Ventures’ support, we will be able to accelerate commercial opportunities for our airline partners by advancing the development and deployment of our modular Triplake dynamic retailing platform, delivering the best possible end to end experience for travellers and increasing speed to market with more pre-integrations,” said Michael Huynh, founder and managing director.

“We will also enhance our leading Triplake Control Hub further for airline teams to drive one-to-one propositions and experiment and optimise performance in real time.
