We believe the Rezopia platform combined with the strong management team and travel domain specialist will further strengthen our competitive position in the travel vertical."
Speaking on the occasion of announcement of the agreement, Mr. Rakesh Hegde, Founder of Rezopia, said, "The travel industry is a very dynamic and competitive industry where technology plays a key role in enabling businesses to succeed with customers.
