“We’re excited to welcome OTA Sync to Presto, as they complete our HORECA portfolio segment by adding their HO to our RECA. We believe the rapid post-covid surge of mass tourism creates an ideal setting for tools that significantly increase the productivity of the already scarce hospitality workforce. The synergy between Djordje and Ilija’s industry experience, coupled with the product’s maturity, positions them perfectly to capitalize on this vast opportunity. Personally, I can’t wait to see more hotels using OTA Sync during my travels.” says Milan Lupac, Partner at Presto Ventures.
In recent years the hotel tech industry has been accelerating, so the choice of complex hotel systems or combinations of multiple management systems can be very frustrating and create various bottle-neck business points for hoteliers.
The simplicity and comprehensiveness of a single system reduces the time and effort required for training, decision-making, and adapting to one system, while helping employees increase productivity and accelerate revenue.
