Yanolja Acquires eZee Technosys, now a Top 2 Cloud-based PMS Provider

Yanolja, a global hotel and leisure platform company, acquired eZee Technosys, an innovative global company widely known for its channel management system (CMS) and property management system (PMS).

Yanolja Acquires eZee Technosys

eZee Technosys is an innovative IT solutions company based in Surat, India. The company ranks second in the global PMS market, following Oracle Hospitality. eZee Technosys offers services to more than 13,000 global customers in more than 160 countries around the world.  This includes North America as well as the Middle East and Southeast Asia. With Yanolja’s PMS business currently servicing over 8,000 properties in Korea, together with eZee Technosys, it will elevate to be one of the global Top 2 in the cloud-based PMS market, with strong technological R&D capabilities.

Yanolja’s decision to acquire eZee Technosys was primarily based on two aspects:

  1. The company’s strong R&D capabilities
  2. The significant growth potential of cloud-based PMS market, reflecting the active and dynamic needs of customers

Against this backdrop, Yanolja will mainly utilize the PMS to create an integration platform where all users including hotels, OTAs, and customers can benefit – lower operational costs, innovative product offerings, and better user experiences, respectively. In addition, Yanolja has developed a blueprint to fully automate hotel operations utilizing cloud-based technologies, beyond the existing on-premise solutions.

Thanks to the acquisition, Yanolja immediately secured a total of 21,000 global clients as well as strong global R&D capabilities. In particular, Yanolja will maximize synergy with its previously invested ZENRooms, the No.1 budget hotel chain in Southeast Asia, through automating its operations resulting in further improved customer experience and profit.
