South-east Asian budget and mid-range hotel group, ZEN Rooms, has signed a landmark agreement with hospitality technology solution provider eZee to help its hotels increase revenue streams and improve operational efficiency.
The alliance more than 1,000 properties under the ZEN umbrella to access eZee hospitality software.
According to a press statement, this is the largest deal for hospitality technology deployment in South-east Asia.
The technology boost for ZEN comes after the October 2019 announcement of its partnership with eZee and South Korean travel group, Yanolja to develop Y Flux, a fully-integrated and automated environment that allows real-time communication with guests and features to guests such as early check-in, late check-out, mobile concierge, mobile keys, room service by robots, vending machines for amenities, and more.
eZee was recently acquired by Yanolja.
ZEN Rooms own and partner properties will be the first to start using this technology in the first half of 2020.
“In today’s increasingly demanding and competitive market, technology is the way to improve the industry, make it safer and more affordable, benefiting the travellers and the well-being of hoteliers,” said Nathan Boublil, the co-founder and CEO at ZEN Rooms.
According to Aeijaz Sodawala, the CEO of eZee, the company supports 13,000-plus hotels and restaurants in more than 160 countries. The company established itself on innovative technology for small to big hotels, hotel chains and restaurants, and has gradually expanded to support other industry segments like hostels and B&Bs.
