Mews Acquires Hotel Perfect to Expand UK Operations
Hotel Perfect is the third property management system acquisition for Mews in 18 months
Mews, the leading cloud-based property management system (PMS), has today announced the acquisition of Hotel Perfect, one of the UK’s most popular PMS solutions for full service and independent hotel properties. The acquisition reinforces Mews’ growth in the UK market and its commitment to further invest in technology that simplifies and automates all operations for modern hoteliers and their guests.
“The PMS category is currently going through rapid innovation and growth,” said Richard Valtr, Founder of Mews. “Hotel Perfect has everything we’re looking for in an acquisition: great people, customers, and technology. This partnership also represents a conscious investment into the UK market where we’re seeing strong adoption of cloud technology and hospitality brands who are looking for solutions that will serve them long into the future. I’m delighted to bring Hotel Perfect into the Mews family.”
With hundreds of customers, the Hotel Perfect team is one with deep-rooted knowledge, expertise, and understanding about the UK market. Founded in Cornwall in 1992, the company has built a comprehensive suite of software products that includes a booking engine, channel management, guest communications, and dynamic pricing. The Hotel Perfect UK-wide customer base includes luxury hotels, resorts and spas, golf clubs, conference centers, and self-catering businesses.
“The growth and innovation from Mews is evident,” said Andrew Risely, Managing Director of Hotel Perfect. “We’ve known Mews for a long time and both share a common goal of delivering great technology to a wide variety of hospitality businesses. We believe they are leading the way with the next generation of ‘Open API Connectivity’ allowing businesses to choose, and seamlessly connect applications to the property management system. It’s an incredibly exciting moment for our team and customers who will be benefiting from the existing expertise here at Hotel Perfect, along with being well-supported by Mews now and in the years to come.”
Hotel guests now expect technology-enabled experiences throughout their guest journey. From booking right through to check-out, every interaction between guests and hotels is a potential opportunity to innovate. As Mews is an open, cloud-based property management system, hoteliers can scale, automate and simplify interactions with guests, and at the same time have reporting and data at their fingertips to make instant decisions.
The acquisition will include the Hotel Perfect product line, customers, and team. This is the third PMS that Mews has acquired, and publicly announced, in the last 18 months, with Planet Winner and Base7Booking successfully merging into the Mews operation already.
