For customers looking for a place to stay, OYO offers a three-tap booking app, convenient payment channels, high quality reliable experience and services, and 24X7 customer support. In India’s highly fragmented hotel industry, OYO empowers unbranded hotels to increase revenues by providing access to technology, operational best practices and a national ecosystem of vendors and sales channels.

Oyo earlier raised $25mn in March of 2015. The company was recently in controversy over a court case against its competition, Zostel Rooms.
