The Mews Blog > Mews Systems Raises €1.5m to Accelerate and Innovate Hotel Management
Amsterdam, 22 November 2016: Mews Systems announces that it has successfully raised a 1.5m EUR investment from Axivate Capital, to help accelerate the growth of its Property Management Platform.
Mews has built a complete cloud enterprise solution for hotels and hostels, and the only solution which features a fully integrated online check-in procedure. The fully mobile solution comes with integrations into 35 industry partners, guest concierge application, web booking engine, open APIs and a fantastic user interface that allows quick and easy training and onboarding.
The company has seen revenues grow by 300% during 2016, and has added over 100 properties in 20 countries, ranging from 5-star hotels, regional hotel chains and hotels and hostels, the largest of which has 1200 beds. Operating out of three European centres, Amsterdam, London and Prague, the company is taking on some of the behemoths of the hospitality industry head on and causing considerable waves.
Mews Systems was founded in 2012, with the vision that real innovation in the hospitality industry is only possible if you rebuild the existing Property Management System (PMS) from the ground up. Founded in a basement office near the Old Town Square in Prague, a small team set out to rethink the traditional PMS, and put the guest back at the core of its solution. Its mission was to provide all hoteliers – whether they are running a 1000-bed hotel or renting out a number of apartments in multiple cities – the freedom to completely rethink their guest experiences by utilising the power of cloud and mobile technologies.
Richard Valtr, Founder: “Our intention was never to build a PMS, but rather to rethink the way all types of properties operate and we’re excited that this investment fully enables us to build the Property Management Platform of the future. In Axivate Capital, we’ve found a partner that helps us move into fully automating the processes around property management to return the operator to focus fully on making their guests happy.”
