TORONTO — App developer Zonetail Inc. has secured $2.3 million to further develop its “anchored local” white-label hotel app.
Zonetail is a free mobile app and platform, custom-branded to hotels, which connects guests to the full range of hotel services and businesses in the surrounding neighbourhood — helping them live like locals during their stay. “People don’t just check into a hotel, they check into the neighbourhood of a city,” said Mark Holmes, CEO, Zonetail. “Most of people’s lives, whether at home or travelling, are spent within five miles of their home base. By organizing the information that matters most to them, we are saving them time and making their experience more rewarding.”
To date, Zonetail has signed agreements with more than 100 hotel properties in 10 Canadian provinces and 15 states, as well as three international locations.
