Deathtech Solutions Provider PlotBox Announces Capital Investment Success

PlotBox, the leading software solutions provider to cemeteries, crematories, and funeral homes, has announced a $6.2 million 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 a 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, crematories, and funeral homes to operate to world-class standards.

The new funding will support PlotBox’s strategy for global growth and expansion, enabling its continued development of best-in-class products and services that will help to revolutionize the way deathcare facilities both operate and grow.

PlotBox CEO, Sean McAllister said, “Our mission is to help take away some of the pain in dealing with death – for families, and those who serve them. This funding will enable us to continue to realize that mission by providing customer-focused, innovative solutions that give our partners greater visibility, confidence and control in their data, and most importantly – more time to focus on what matters most.” 

Shane Gallwey, Head of Ventures, Guinness Ventures said: “PlotBox is a leader in its field across its target markets including the UK and USA. Sean, Leona, and their team are innovators and disruptors in this sector. Their hard work and commitment have established them as the best-in-class solution, bringing much-needed modernization to a fragmented industry. PlotBox is a fantastic addition to the Guinness Ventures portfolio and we’re very much looking forward to supporting them on their continuing journey to reshape the death tech industry.”
