Mews is continuing its spending spree with the acquisition of property management system (PMS) Cenium.
Cloud-led Cenium is owned by Nordic Choice Hotels and, according to a statement, the purchase boosts the growth of Mews across Northern Europe with the Mews Hospitality Cloud “now being rolled out cross the entire Nordic Hotels portfolio.”
Richard Valtr, founder of Mews, says: “We’re delighted to welcome Cenium to the ever-growing Mews family. The company is established throughout the Scandinavian and Baltic regions and we’re excited to bring their expertise and product into the Mews portfolio.
"Our ambition to become the leading property management system in the world has been further bolstered by this acquisition, and the opportunity to partner within Nordic Choice Hotels was too good to miss.”
This is the fourth PMS that Mews has acquired in the past two years after U.K.-based Hotel Perfect last year, Base7Booking and Planet Winner.
The team from Norway-based Cenium will join Mews bringing their hospitality expertize and knowledge of the Nordic market.
Cenium’s capabilities will be combined with those of Mews’ technology.
Michael Ramm Østgaard, CEO at Cenium, says: "Mews has a vision for the future of hospitality like no other in our industry. The opportunity for us to bring our expertise and products into the Mews ecosystem is an exciting moment for us. For our existing customers, we’re incredibly positive about what they will now be able to achieve with the Mews Hospitality Cloud."
