The investment arm of software company Salesforce has invested an undisclosed amount into property management specialist Mews.

The proceeds will be used to help fund the company’s expansion plans, which include increasing headcount by more than 90% (100 plus roles) over the coming year.

What They Said

Matthijs Welle, CEO of Mews, said: “As we engage with the leading regional and global groups in hospitality, it’s clear that they share our vision for more open, flexible, cloud-based solutions in hospitality that enable continuous innovation. We’re firmly committed to delivering the most robust cloud platform for enterprise brands and we’re backing up this commitment by reinvesting millions of euros in our people, and as a result our product capabilities.”

Nowi Kallen, principal at Salesforce Venture, said: “We’re extremely optimistic when it comes to hospitality technology. Times of adversity are often the greatest moments of transformation and opportunity. Mews has been at the forefront of cloud innovation in the industry, and we’re very excited about the role they’re playing as enterprise hospitality brands shift more of their property and guest-facing technology into the cloud.”
