Summary

Oyo Japan decided to sell its apartment rental brand Oyo Life to KC Technologies. Tokyo Techies took charge in supporting both parties to evaluate the existing infrastructure of the property management platform, addressing all technical challenges, and developing a plan for system migration and maintenance.

The Case

In June 2021, Oyo Japan — the Japanese arm of the Indian multinational hotel startup — decided to sell its apartment rental brand Oyo Life to KC Technologies, in an effort to focus on its hotel business.

The main goal of the acquisition was to continue providing rental services for the existing Oyo Life customer base under KC Technologies, despite the termination of the service’s new developments.

As part of the acquisition, Tokyo Techies took charge in supporting both parties to evaluate the existing infrastructure of the property management platform, addressing all technical challenges, and developing a plan for system migration and maintenance.

In packaging the system to make it usable by KC Technologies, one of the main challenges of the migration was the service’s dependency on support from Oyo engineers in India, which will need to be discontinued after the acquisition. There was also the problem of rebranding, which required the removal and replacement of all embedded Oyo branding within the design and coding of the app.

The Results

In just three months, Tokyo Techies have successfully migrated Oyo Life’s property management system under KC Technologies’ operations with no changes in system behavior. There have been no major issues with the service since the migration. Tokyo Techies will continue to monitor the system and address any problems that may occur.
