Benson was born from within the hotel industry.

In fact, you could even say he appeared almost by magic.

In 2014 James Peech, founder of The Peech Hotel in Johannesburg, became annoyed and uninspired by his outdated hotel software management system. He started the search for a new system that could take his hotel forward and embrace the developments in technology that he felt it needed. He wanted to be an early adopter, but his search for the right system proved fruitless. He and Angus Moir, CEO of a flourishing software development company, met fortuitously, and the idea to create Benson was born.

As experts in their respective fields, Angus and James have built Benson to meet their specific needs – and therefore yours, too. Benson has been designed as a hotelier’s “best employee”, doing the hard work and making your life easier and simpler, so that you can focus on taking care of your guests.

We never rest on our laurels though. We’re always tweaking and improving Benson, living by the mantra that good design never stands still.
