Zucchetti, which provides hardware and software for hospitality as well as other industries, with more than 1,000 partners worldwide and employing nearly 4,000, recently acquired Italy-based rival Simple Booking, which is a reservation-booster, increasing direct bookings and global turnover for hotels.
At the end of 2017 Zucchetti bought Vertical Booking, another Italian company offering services such as booking engine, channel manager, metasearch management and distribution across more than 100 countries. Before this it bought another Italian hotel tech provider, GP Dati Hotel Service, offering property management service software, NI.CE. informatica and POS Sistemi.
These four acquisitions mean Zucchetti is working with a third of the hotels in Italy.
