About us

Created in 2014 by Jan Jaap van Roon, Ireckonu is a Dutch company committed to solving the challenges of the hospitality sector through technology and data by eliminating time-consuming tasks for hotel staff, and offering them insights to provide a distinctly personalized digital and in-person experience for guests.

First adopted by Dutch hotel brand citizenM in 2014, Ireckonu has grown to employ roughly 70 people and today counts many hotel brands around the world as its clients – including Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, Loews Hotels, The Student Hotels, Hard Rock Hotels, EVENT Hospitality & Entertainment, New York City’s PUBLIC Hotel to name a few. Led by its vision to transform the hospitality industry with smarter solutions, IReckonU complements its cloud-native, hospitality-specific Core middleware solution, with wrap-around applications so that even those clients with little in-house technology talent can undergo true digital transformation.

Ireckonu’s products are delivered in a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model to scale with your business as it grows. The product is recognized as a game-changing, premium solution in the hospitality industry, leading to vast growth over the past years and an exciting future ahead.

Our mission

To serve hospitality by using the power of middleware to deliver information that makes every person smarter and more connected.

Our core value

Passion for Technology

We live and breathe innovative tech and continue to search for better and smarter ways to advance our product.


In everything we do, make, buy, or deliver, we maintain the highest quality standards.


Everyone can be a “client”, but to partner with another hotel or vendor means that we are in this together, building strong bonds and moving forward as a group.


Every team member at Ireckonu is part of the family. As a family, we work hard, play hard, and continuously push each other to be the best version of ourselves both in and out of work.


We let curiosity and creativity inspire our imaginations to come up with new ideas that add value.
