They are managing daily bookings worth 1.1 Cr every single day which amounts to approximately one percent of the entire hotel industry in India. Managing 3300 room night transactions every single day is quite a big feat as compared to some OTAs.Tarun Gulati, DJUBO, said, “Early mentors had warned us against starting a SAAS business in the Indian SME space citing poor payment collections especially in the hospitality sector. They had wanted us to look outside India. But, we felt that the Indian hospitality industry was in need of a revamp. In order to ease the hotel industry into the online market, we came up with a 360° sales platform.”DJUBO’s product combines the functionality of a number of standalone products such as a Channel Manager, CRS and Booking Engine under one interface which is helping hoteliers solve problems of under exposure, overbooking and rate parity issues which otherwise wasn’t being solved by existing hotel tech. Hoteliers can make much easier online payments with the help of a Secure Payment gateway which can be accessed via a mobile app at any given time. Customers are making direct bookings on the hotel’s webpage with the help of an integrated booking engine and built in price comparison widget. All operations, sales distribution and revenue management is managed by a Central Reservation System. All these SAAS products are managed via a single dashboard.A majority of their clients have started to engage with DJUBO as a web app but even on a smartphone. DJUBO’s support and training has helped clients become self-dependent in being able to manage their businesses 24/7. The growing user engagement shows that they are a ‘True Sales Management’ system that is being widely accepted by clients the world over.Having solved the major problems faced by most Indian hoteliers, they are also planning to launch many ground breaking products globally, like yield management, actionable big data and app based property management systems sometime soon.last_img
