Mews, a fast-growing SaaS property management system (PMS) for hotels and hostels, has acquired the largest Belgium-based software-provider, Winner Hotel Software.
The strategic partnership between two premier property management systems will expand Mews’ reach and bolsters its position as the fastest-growing PMS solution in the world.
The deal means customers of Planet Winner, a founder-owned and custom-built platform with more than two decades experience serving the hotel industry, will have access to cloud-based functionality allowing them to access their PMS anytime, from anywhere.
Founded in 2012, Mews aims to modernise the customer experience for hotel guests by providing hoteliers with a suite of software infrastructure to support an open network of applications. Its digital features include a fully integrated payment solution, the first online check-in and check-out suite, the industry’s first truly open API and a marketplace with more than 300 integrations.
Planet Winner owners, Ria de Temmerman, and Dirk Leysen, said: “We believe the Mews system allows us to help our customers leapfrog towards state-of-the-art, next-generation PMS technology and that our 25-year knowledge and experience can contribute to the growth and success of Mews.”
Matthijs Welle, CEO at Mews, said: “We welcome Planet Winner’s founders and its customer-centric team into our family to help us offer customers a great, future-proof solution and usher in a new era of hospitality in the Benelux.
“At Mews, we’re passionate about changing the industry for the better and we’re excited to partner with such an experienced player.”
