Hotel guest app provider Criton is being acquired by Nonius, giving it a greater ability to work with properties that require mobile tools and services.
Terms of the deal are not being disclosed.
Criton claims it is the largest provider of hotel guest apps in the U.K., working with the likes of Cheval Residences, Sunborn and Devonshire Hotels.
The native apps can handle a range of services, including check-in and check-out tools, mobile keys and food ordering.
The company was created in June 2016 and is lead by founder and CEO, Julie Grieve, who will remain with Criton as a director.
Nonius, a software company that creates hospitality tools covering in-room entertainment, check-in automation, analytics, WiFi and digital signage, already has a mobile development unit known as GuestU.
Grieve says: "I’ve been hugely impressed with their Nonius Hub and believe that together, our products will deliver exactly what hoteliers and their guests want, simple and effective mobile solutions bringing much needed digital transformation to a sector that has a challenging technology landscape and has been significantly impacted over the past two years of the pandemic."
Nonius is 17 years old and based in Portugal.
Antonio Silva, CEO and co-founder, adds: "Since its inception, Criton has grown an inspiring client list and we are now starting to implement our plan to fully integrate our platforms to create a world-leading offering from which hoteliers and their guests can benefit."
