Can you remove the reception desk from a hotel? In the first Mews Systems Podcast, Matthijs, Richard and Greg discuss the many challenges of innovating traditional processes from within a hotel.
What lies ahead? The future of the hotel experience is changing and a new form of personalisation lies at its core. The hoteliers that have moved first are not only winning plaudits and custom from a digitally native generation but are also benefitting from a drastic reduction in their own cost base.
“Why would you leave a corporate career for life in a startup?”. Most of the really talented people are locked up in corporate hotel jobs and may not want to take as much risk on their career as we did in our early days. To combat this challenge, we found a simple solution: we share the risk with you, and set you up for success. A great way to start your own company.
After many years of trying, we finally convinced Ilse to leave her steady career at Sabre and come strengthen the Mews team with her talents. With our latest funding round closed, the business growing rapidly, and one of the key priorities being making the business scalable, whilst retaining the personal relationship we have with our customers.
