What is the methodology for calculating the cost savings?

Mews enables properties to see a significant difference in their cost and time efficiency across departments that have a huge reliance on manual tasks. Hence, to arrive at your final consolidated savings, we first assessed the metrics that are labor intensive and have a direct impact on your savings. These metrics are calculated based on the information you provided.

  1. Reception cost savings: Mews automates reception staff’s repetitive and time-consuming daily tasks.

    Calculation methodology: Reception cost saving is a function of your occupancy, hourly reception labor cost and reception staff’s hourly manual transactions.

    Considerations
    • Reception staff’s hourly manual transactions: It takes 180 seconds to perform one manual transaction. Hence, the reception staff performs 20 transactions an hour
    • You’ll save costs related to 4 tasks per occupied/reserved room per day by eliminating repetitive and time-consuming Reception staff tasks.
  2. Accounting cost savings: Mews enables you to eliminate the daily payment reconciliation tasks done by your accounting staff so they can focus their efforts on other tasks.

    Calculation methodology: Account cost saving is calculated by considering your hourly accounting labor cost and number of properties.

    Considerations

    • By eliminating daily reconciliation tasks, you’ll save costs related to 4 tasks per occupied/reserved room per day.
  3. No show cost savings: Mews automated payments secures properties against unpaid No-show reservations.

    Calculation methodology: No show cost saving is dependent on your occupancy and average daily rate
