Fast onboarding across the portfolio

Challenge

With a big portfolio of hotels, the Life House team needed a fast and efficient onboarding process.

Solution

Working in close collaboration with key Life House stakeholders, the Mews Implementation Team ensures that hotels can go live in a matter of weeks – sometimes even days. Because Mews is a cloud-native solution, there are no complicated or time-consuming onsite server or hardware installations, while comprehensive learning – including Mews University – ensures that staff are able to get up to speed and learn their new system quickly.

Result

Easy and seamless transition so that each property could be up and running quickly and efficiently:

• Three days between welcome call and go live at Life House, Nantucket
• Seven days at Life House, Little Havana
• Seven days at Life House, Lower Highlands

Custom API connections

Challenge

Life House developed their own software that needed to connect to their hospitality cloud for easy use across all of their properties.

Solution

With Mews Open API, the Life House technical team is able to build custom integrations to the Mews platform. Once these APIs have been validated as secure, they can then integrate immediately with any Life House property, creating an agile and efficient tech stack.

Result

Life House Revenue Management and Marketing and Life House Guest Management solutions are easily accessible for every Life House property, allowing them to:

• Increase RevPAR: drive +35% higher net RevPAR through automated pricing and digital marketing intelligence
• Decrease Costs: reduce OTA commissions and drive over 70% direct bookings

“Having access to Open APIs is vital for our own software development and for any tech-enabled operator that wants to build our own solutions. Mews’ connectivity is what sets it apart from other hotel software systems, especially the legacy systems, both in terms of their APIs and their marketplace of integrations.”
