“Mews’ mission is to help hotels and hostels automate their operations so they can focus on their guests, which is what the industry has always been about," said Richard Valtr, founder of Mews. "We want to build the nervous system for hotels that all apps and tools for both guests and hosts can be plugged into. This new capital injection into Mews will facilitate our aggressive expansion plans and help us take the hotel industry, and hosting more widely, into the future."
Mews’ property management software helps hotels, hostels, and apartments automate their operations. Its platform facilitates everything from online check-ins and payments, to booking and staff training. Mews plans to use the funding to further develop its platform, democratise knowledge around hoteliering, and encourage connectivity to enhance the overall guest experience. The funds will also be used to open new offices around the world.
“In the last year alone we have expanded from 10 to 35 countries, grown revenue by 20% per month and expanded the team from one office with 25 employees to three and 80 employees," added Matthijs Welle, CEO of Mews. "Seeing the company grow at such an accelerated pace has been humbling and is a testament to the strength of our platform and the calibre of our global team.”
