The majority of people’s lives are spent in and around places (often within 5 miles), whether that’s at home, work, or away at a hotel. There’s a need to organize information in and around these places saving people time and making the information more useful, accessible, and rewarding. That’s what Zonetail does. We call it ‘anchored local.’

Location-based apps such as Yelp, and Trip Advisor provide unstructured, general area information. Zonetail is anchored to the places where people live, stay, work, and congregate, providing property information, access, and interaction, while also providing contextually relevant, and targeted sponsored content in the surrounding neighborhood.

A new company with a
50-year history

Zonetail is based on a legacy business (Kingsway Agencies) started in 1960 and built on a proprietary invention; a sliding device that attached underneath hotel guest phones, displaying branded hotel information and services, as well as local area advertising. It was supplied and installed free of charge to hotels. From there, the business quickly expanded to cover many hotels in North America.

Zonetail is the modern remix of that business. All of the learning gained over 50 years, in both the hospitality industry and direct to guest retail advertising, is in our pedigree.
