Discoveroom aspires to solve both the reservations and bookings management issues for small lodgings commonly called Bed and Breakfast or Rooms to let.
The company will leverage a free mobile app that will facilitate reservation management that comes with online vacancy listing. The opportunity to be exploited lies in the largely blurred space in between the offerings of the likes of booking.com and airbnb.
The service is expected to launch in December 2013 in a few local destinations, and then expand its supply and geographical coverage.
The team is comprised of seasoned developer turned marketer Nikos Anagnostou and Evangelos Mitsokalis leading software development.
