Product: Beachy
Category: Emerging Company
HQ: Nashville, TN U.S.
Principal(s): David Stange, Pete Peltier, Tanner Shehan, Kelly McNair, Mary Kate Schleider
Funding: Beachy has raised a total of $5M with the first $750K founder-funded.
Product Description: Beachy connects beach, pool, and F&B ecosystems, streamlining operations to increase revenue and deliver an unparalleled guest experience. The Beach Management System and Pool Operations Platform allows destinations to take advanced guest reservations, see real-time layouts, and integrate F&B service. Beachy's F&B platform, which connects directly to a POS system, offers a seamless ordering process that decreases ticket times, delivers real-time customer insights, and increases average order value.
Business Model: Beachy has a two-part business model: A monthly SaaS fee that is paid by the hotel, and a transaction fee that is paid by the hotel guest on each transaction.
Competitors: Direct competitor: Clipboard (paper/pencil) management; Indirect competitors: Legacy POS
Competitive Edge: As the first beach management technology solution, Beachy changed the way that beach, pool, and F&B management operates. The most integrative (connects directly with destination's POS) and cost-effective product on the market, renting chairs and delivering F&B has never been more profitable.
Market Opportunity: Before Beachy, beach management was run with a clipboard and a pencil in an attempt to track complicated and changing reservations. Now, the Beachy product allows attendants to easily track, manage and change guest reservations through our app. After introducing the Pool Operations Platform and F&B solutions, Beachy now connects the beach, pool and F&B ecosystems, streamlining and integrating destination operations to increase revenue and deliver an unparalleled guest experience.
Early Customers: Beachy works with the biggest brands in the world to deliver the end-to-end guest experience.
