Aryeo, an Austin, TX-based operating system for real estate photographers, announced that it raised $3.5 million in a fresh capital round led by 645 Ventures, with participation from Hyperplane VC. To date, Aryeo has raised more than $7 million in funding.
The new funding will be directed towards Aryeo’s growing sales team, which last month announced the hiring of industry veteran Butch Hodson as its Head of Sales.
“Real estate photographers and media companies are an overlooked and integral part of the real estate process,” says Branick Weix, CEO and co-founder of Aryeo. “Zillow, Realtor.com, Redfin, and Homes.com have begun differentiating themselves with unique and exclusive content (pictures, videos, floor plans, and 3D tours). Photographers are the key enablers of this shift. We are building the best-in-class software to help them achieve this and grow their businesses for years to come.”
Aryeo offers a vertical SaaS product that helps photographers do everything from online scheduling and payment processing to file delivery and management. Its advanced scheduling system will even account for drive time and traffic between appointments, taking a once time-intensive logistics problem and turning it into a fully automated online booking process.
This round also welcomes real estate veteran Ben Rubenstein to Aryeo’s board. Managing partner of 645 Ventures Nnamdi Okike, is also joining the board.
