RezNext Global Solutions, which offers a platform to bring hotels online and is headed by a former CEO of Pegasus Solutions, picked up $5 million in a Series A funding round as it seeks to expand beyond its India base.

New Enterprise Associates, which invests in tech companies, often with the aim of taking them public, funded the $5 million round.

Founded in 2012 and led by CEO Mike Kistner, the Bangalore-based startup specializes in bringing small to midsize hotels online and connecting them to distributors. RezNext recently signed a partnership with Cleartrip to enable hoteliers to connect to the Indian online travel agency for distribution.

RezNext plans to use the funding to expand in Asia, Africa and the Middle East and to build out its platform.

A RezNext spokesperson declined to detail how much the company previously raised in seed funding.
