Tomizone acquire Jimojo to expand Australian operations

Purchase of Jimojo and iRoom creates Australia’s largest Accommodation Wi-Fi Footprint

Auckland, 7 May 2013 – Tomizone Limited announced today its acquisition of Jimojo Pty Limited, which will elevate Tomizone as Australia’s largest Wi-Fi service provider in the accommodation sector. Jimojo is a privately held company based in Brisbane with over 400 top quality accommodation partners who utilise its Guest Wi-Fi services under the Jimojo and iRoom brands. It also has a considerable on-line tech business through its Wi-Fi Products store. The executive directors of Jimojo will assist with the transition in the near term.

“Tomizone has invested heavily in expanding in Australia since our first Wi-Fi hotspot opened in 2006”, says Steve Simms, CEO of Tomizone, “this is our second major Wi-Fi acquisition here and we can see more scope to provide top quality Wi-Fi services through further investment in the future. Australia is our biggest market and the maturity of Wi-Fi has reached a point where some operators can see sense in consolidating operations into a bigger footprint to provide a consistent user experience”.

The Tomizone HQ in Australia is in Sydney and the Brisbane office will now also support the wide array of Tomizone partners across the Eastern region and the country. With a network of over 20,000 Wi-Fi hotspots and zones, Tomizone has been privileged to provide high profile Wi-Fi services for partners such as Sydney Airport and Sydney Ferries not to mention the wide range of Hotels, Motels and Resorts across Australasia.

“Jimojo has been around since 2006 and the approach from Tomizone to acquire our operations was perfect timing”, said Joshua Anderson, Managing Director of Jimojo, “we have a very loyal partner network and Tomizone’s ability to offer enhanced services will provide them with a very good and sustainable service offering to their customers in the long term”.

The Jimojo and iRoom brands will continue to trade under the Tomizone company structure. Tomizone is looking at other opportunities for its growth plans in Australia.
