Hotelsoft Inc. is a San Francisco Bay Area based company offering innovative software solutions and services to independent and chain scale hotels. Hotelsoft came about on the back of a napkin at a bar in SFO when Vish expressed frustration at the lack of intuitive solutions in the hospitality industry. Abhishek, an ever enterprising entrepreneur having experienced similar issues in the healthcare industry decided to jump in. And Hotelsoft was born.
