Amit Popat
Co-Founder & CEO

Track record with major technology companies

Founder & CEO, Amit Popat, has a track record of working and developing successful technology companies. With a Masters in Mathematics at University of Cambridge, he went on to set up a successful software development company, specialising in developing financial reporting and payment systems that have been used by major FTSE-250 and multinational companies, including Currys PLC and Herbert Smith Freehills, processing over £50m monthly.

He also worked with EasyJet to develop and deploy their new booking system on AWS, scaling to serve millions of customers daily, as well as delivering in-depth analytics to help optimise revenues, which resulted in a revenue uplift of over 5%.

This was followed by time at S-Cube, where he successfully lead the migration of large scale on-premise geophysics machine learning algorithms to AWS cloud, the first of its kind, enabling workloads to run up to 1m cores on the cloud at low cost.

Upon entering the travel & hospitality industry in 2019, he discovered a unique opportunity to combine the latest technological advances with the data analytics and machine learning knowledge gained from other industries to hotels, leading to the creation of Hotel Cloud.

And so the journey began, which has seen us rapidly grow and be used by independent and branded hotels alike, all with 5 star reviews and uplift in revenues.

Our journey is young, but the future is very bright. We look forward to you joining us…
