Connect&GO, a Montreal-based guest and attractions management technology company, has raised more than C$17 million in Series A financing. Financière Outremont led the round. Other backers included French holding company Carey, Finalta Capital and Gestal.

Connect&GO offers a cloud-based attractions management platform, Konnect, that supports all operations of an attraction and can replace up to more than 10 existing solutions at once.

This funding represents an opportunity for the company to continue to strengthen its global presence and pursue its ambitious growth plan to double its revenue and number of installations each year.

“Our growth depends directly on the satisfaction of our customers who are the best ambassadors of our platform. This is why the majority of investments are directly related to product development, innovation, user experience as well as the deployment and customer success team,” says Tara Morandi, senior vice-president of sales and marketing at Connect&GO, in a statement.

With this financing in place, Connect&GO plans to accelerate the development of its product and deployments in Europe, where it has just won more than 10 major amusement parks, while also strengthening its presence in the United States with the hiring of strategic players including Ted Molter, former chief marketing officer of the San Diego Zoo.

Additionally, in partnership with the Montreal-based artificial intelligence company Moov AI, Connect&GO will invest more than $1 million in the launch of a forecasting and traffic management engine for the world of attractions.
