eZee Panorama: The one-stop solution for all your website needs
eZee has come up with an optimum solution for website building, creation, and maintenance that could remove a majority of obstacles with the idea of “eZee Panorama.”
Initially, eZee used to provide website design services to its customers through pre-designed templates. However, the competitive market encouraged all kinds of businesses to think outside the box and take steps towards better brand awareness and positioning.
Aeijaz Sodawala, CEO at eZee Technosys said, "In this time and age, a solid online presence is a prerequisite. Without a website, it is going to be utterly impossible for businesses to survive. Yet, hoteliers and restaurateurs find it difficult to get the right website in their budget. Therefore, we came up with a simple and affordable solution to all the website hassles - eZee Panorama."
In that respect, eZee recognised this need for the hospitality industry. It surveyed thousands of hoteliers, F&B business owners, and conducted a rigorous analysis; the conclusion of which was: 20 per cent of the hoteliers do not prefer to invest in a website. 72 per cent of people would book directly with the hotel if they get the best deal. 94 per cent of people abandon a booking online because of the quality of the website. 70 per cent of survey respondents say they rely on images to explore more about a hotel. 87 per cent of guests visit a hotel’s website before booking.
Apart from these, most hoteliers did not prefer to invest in a website because: There was no major increase in the booking flow via a website. The design costs were expensive. They experienced very minimal support from the website developers. Website delivery took a lot of time and was not responsive. The returns on investment were not up to the mark.

This had been the FIRST-EVER virtual launch event in the industry. Aeijaz Sodawala, CEO at eZee Technosys hosted this event held on August 15, 2020.
