Shedul.com, a Dubai-based free booking platform for salons and spas, closed a $6m Series A financing.
The round was led by Middle East Venture Partners (MEVP) with participation from Beco Capital and Lumia Capital.
The company plans to use the funds to scale their operations and expand product development.
Launched in 2015 and led by CEO William Zeqiri, and COO Nick Miller, the platform (pronounced like the British schedule) streamlines small- and medium-sized business operations with free-to-use software featuring management appointment booking, point-of-sale, customer records, human resources, inventory, and financial reporting tools.
In under two years, Shedul.com has signed up a vast user base of over 40,000 merchants in more than 120 countries, from United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
