"We will come across many problems in our start up and entrepreneurship, do not worry about problems but worry about solutions. Every time chips are down, strive to come back much more positive & stronger your team is looking upon you."

  • Success is a mirage, keep focused on deliveries and goals.
  • Our first focus remains to be cash flow positive we dont believe in the run of the mill ecommerce way of looking at GMV. We are bottomline oriented business model, thanks to our hotel partner we are India's leading hotel technology platform, we would like to be the worlds no.1. Vision is clear for us, and we have a immense opportunity with our product line.
  • We are helping Hotel chains, Independent hotels, bed & breakfasts offering a simple to use technology to scale their business with a opportunity to have a seamless distribution and also giving them insights to manage their revenue and forecasting.
  • For me working for a company would have more productive, but I chose the other path, I had a decade of experience in Hotel contracting, problem I came across in my work experience is none of the hotels were managing any systems, they were using allocations and then there was the online travel agency boom which I understood need of better technology to manage the complete distribution. Supply management is a key for any ecommerce business and hotels did not even have any direction to solve this problem when we started.

    We were early and hotels took their sweet time to adopt. Now our distribution product is a entry level product we have moved further giving hotels an access to have central reservation system, our golden eye - competition analysis platform and soon to be launched Revenue management platform which gives full insight to get more data points to take informed decisions on market & predictive analysis, forecasting prices. We are one of worlds first complete hotel technology suite.

  • AxisRooms has a flat organisation, even our reviews in GlassDoor has been good. We are no nonsense company and only worry about deliveries. Our team is our strength and they rally with us well in our good days and bad days too.
  • There are still lot of things we can do, we would like to look at possibility of guest experience technology, like booking hotels online is solved, but web check in & check out is not yet solved, can we use a Mobile NFC as a room key, can we have single branded loyalty programme for all hotels. I am sure this will change the way people travel.
  • "Non Invested companies - Believe in your dream, and be passionate about your goals, business can go upside or downside your passion should stay stable." "Invested Start ups - We need to find value back to our investors, so they can invest more on new start ups, which is good for us and also to many entrepreneurs dream."
