Cloud-based PMS group Mews has acquired Base7booking from Trivago for an undisclosed fee.
Base7booking was focused on independent properties, with a customer base throughout Europe, notably in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Richard Valtr, founder, Mews said: "While our industry has been heavily affected by the pandemic, we're laser-focused on the recovery which is expected to begin in first-half 2021. Now is the moment for the thousand-strong customers from Base7booking to join Mews so they can take full advantage of our technology and expertise in hotel automation."
"The leadership team decided earlier this year to streamline our product portfolio," said Axel Hefer, CEO, Trivago. “We're excited to have found an agreement with a market leader in property management systems. We're very confident that Mews will be an excellent technology partner for the Base7booking customers and team.”
Mews added: “Of all the property management systems out there, why did we choose Base7booking? From early on, our M&A team realised that the business was an ideal candidate for an acquisition, in large part because of our shared culture and values. Just like Mews, Base7booking was founded by former hoteliers who believed that hospitality technology should be better than the traditional systems everyone was resigned to using, and so they built their own flexible property system.
“In short, we all believe in a better way to work, and we believe in the power of transformational technology. Add to the mix a passion for meaningful relationships with hoteliers and memorable experiences for guests and you have a winning combination.”
