The integration of the mobile friendly PMS with the STAAH’s channel manager will allow properties full access to web bookings and their selected online travel agencies (OTAs), thereby streamlining their online distribution process.
Following the integration, properties can relay their live availability and rates to all connected online distribution channels through STAAH’s channel manager via Mews Systems’ property management system. The two way interface means reservations that come in from various online channels are automatically sent to the Mews Systems’ PMS, also in real-time, via the channel manager and the inventory adjusted accordingly.
Properties will benefit from lower costs of acquisition, greater staff productivity and greater revenue following a substantial leap in their online reach.
“We are delighted to partner with STAAH. They have brought tremendous innovation into the distribution space,” says Ruben Westmeijer, Sales Director – Partnerships, Mews Systems. “The affordability of their technology combined with open access and ease-of-use is perfectly aligned with our own philosophy. Their 200+ integrations are critical to properties looking to expand their reach and to us as we continue to grow our customer base globally.”
Mews Systems is popular for its open API that integrates with almost any other related software. Much more flexible than other closed legacy systems, its features such as online check-in, intuitive design and mobile friendliness are a hit with modern hoteliers. Mews comes at a zero integration cost for properties, provides automation in payments and other manual workflows, dedicated and excellent support service and a transparent SaaS pricing model.
“We are happy to have Mews Systems on board as a new partner,” says Russell Logan, Head of Sales, STAAH Europe Ltd. “Together we can provide another seamless, automated solution to hoteliers, moving them away from manual processing of reservations and giving them the gift of time in order to focus on improving guest experience.
The integration is live and accessible to all mutual customers of Mews Systems and STAAH’s Instant or Max Channel Managers.
About Mews Systems
