Mews acquires HS3 Hotelsoftware to bolster German expansion – TravelDailyNews International



Mews now serves 15% of available rooms in German hotels, apartments and hostels.

DETMOLD – Mews, a leader in hospitality technology and cloud-native property management systems (PMS), announced its acquisition of HS3 Hotelsoftware, the German-founded on-premises property management system.

The acquisition bolsters the presence of Mews in Germany, bringing significant market penetration of Mews in the market. The acquisition comes as more hotels adopt cloud technology, where Mews has grown its customer base by 93% as the post-pandemic digitalization in Germany gathers pace.

Following its latest funding of $110m, Mews is accelerating its growth with expansion in key markets. Today, Mews is used by over 700 hotels, apartments, hostels and campsites in DACH and over 30,000 beds in the region are managed via Mews software. 76% of Mews customers in Germany are small and medium hotels, including Hotel Oderberger in Berlin, harry’s home and Paulinenhof.

“The German hospitality market is seeing rapid transformation which is raising the bar for guest experience. That’s why it’s such an exciting time to join forces with Mews, for our team, our customers and the future of hospitality in Germany,” commented Thorsten Mesch, CEO of HS3 Hotelsoftware.

Founded in 2009, HS3 Hotelsoftware has over 15 years of experience helping hotels to exceed their guests’ expectations and a team with deep knowledge of streamlining hotel operations. With over 3,500 customers using its software, HS3 Hotelsoftware is known for its intuitive operations and ability to make processes more efficient.

“More and more hoteliers in Germany are embracing automation and innovation to reshape the way hospitality is delivered. The transformation we’re seeing isn’t limited to the big hotel groups. A significant amount of innovation is in the independent hotel sector, with hoteliers digitalizing their operations to create unique and remarkable experiences for their guests,” Richard Valtr, Founder of Mews, commented.

Matt Welle, CEO of Mews added, “The DACH region has quickly become one of our fastest growing markets with more independent hoteliers seeking to modernize their technology. Acquiring HS3 Hotelsoftware is a significant step to help more German hoteliers onto the cloud, as we triple the number of rooms in Germany that are managed via Mews. We are incredibly excited to welcome the brilliant team to Mews and to support HS3’s customers to provide remarkable hospitality for years to come.”

 The acquisition, which was managed by Mews Ventures to accelerate transformation in the hospitality industry, further strengthens the company’s commitment to delivering technology that simplifies operations for modern hoteliers and their guests.

As part of its increased presence in Germany, Mews will be attending upnxt Das Hospitality Festival in June.
