How it Started and How it's Going

The Early Days: Blazing the trail

The year was 1999, right at the end of the dot com era. The location—the back of a van at Locarno Beach.

Our journey began when software engineering graduate and avid climber Kory Fawcett realized that tour and transportation companies were being managed inefficiently. They lacked the proper tools to effectively manage tours and routes, allocate resources and collect payment on the go. And as a result, guest and tourist experiences suffered.

Drawing from his background in development and sparked by an entrepreneurial drive, Kory grabbed the bull by the horns and coded the first version of Zaui—a software solution that would help an Alberta transportation company (Zaui’s first customer!) better manage the shuttling of passengers from Banff to Calgary.

Designed as an online reservation system to simplify the tour and activity booking experience, the software merged a front-end customer booking interface with a sophisticated suite of back-office tools.

And it worked. Before long, more and more tour operators inquired about Zaui. We grew exponentially in those first few years and went global in 2006.

Smart scaling in a rapidly changing world

Over the last decade, Zaui has evolved to stay ahead of the curve of global digital transformation.

With a laser-like focus on high-quality and reliable software, we’ve expanded and iterated our product suite to meet the ever-changing needs of the tourism industry. This future-oriented development has now made Zaui a mainstay in the reservation technology scene.

Today, Zaui is headquartered in Canada with sales offices in the United States, Norway, UK and South Africa.

What’s ahead?

As the tourism industry continues to experience digital transformation and move operations online, we’re here to help. Whether it’s building out new features to meet customer needs, facilitating new integrations to drive more convenient workflows or simply being present to support our customers every day, our mission remains the same—to help tour, activity and transportation operators everywhere future-proof their businesses, scale and succeed.
