As part of our ongoing strategy to provide cutting edge technology solutions for the hospitality sector, we are proud to announce that we have acquired a majority stake in hotel software company, High Level Software Limited (HLS).
The move will take us deeper into the hotel sector, further enhancing our ability to service this ever growing and dynamic market.
Cardiff based HLS was established in 2013 by co-founding Managing Director Rhys Swinburn and employs a team of 12. Since its launch, HLS has developed an impressive reputation for its cloud-based hotel management system, featuring a real time online booking engine, extensive property management capability, insightful reporting and innovative integrated rewards system. Its clients include Drakes of Brighton, British Country Inns and Glenmorangie.
“HLS has had an exciting journey to date with our growth exceeding all expectations, establishing us as the UK’s fastest growing hotel software company. The partnership with Zonal will enable us to deliver the next phase of our development as there are many direct synergies with EPoS, consumer engagement tools and property management systems”
Rhys Swinburn, Managing Director, HLS
HLS will continue to operate out of Cardiff and Zonal will work with the team to develop integrated platforms on which both the property management and EPoS systems can operate.
“This partnership with HLS adds a new dimension to Zonal and we are really excited about the benefits that we can collectively deliver to the hotel sector.”
Stuart McLean, Zonal’s Chief Executive
