Optii Solutions, the leading optimization technology for hotel teams, has announced its partnership with Mews, the leading cloud-based property management system, with European property Ülemiste City Residences.
Ülemiste City Residences in Estonia selected Optii for its housekeeping solution and is the first joint hotel customer to integrate Mews with Optii’s optimization technology. The ambition is to expand this partnership across US and European hotel properties in the long-term.
The integration of Optii will enable staff at the Ülemiste City Residences to streamline its housekeeping operations through smart technology and automation. The data-driven platform of Optii optimizes room attendant’s daily cleaning schedules and cleaning sequences so hoteliers can plan faster turnaround times and use predictive, intelligent AI to create an efficient daily operation. The combination of Mews and Optii will enable hoteliers to have a one-stop shop for all things hotel operations and bring hotel operations management into the 21st century.
The partnership aims to simplify and eliminate processes that are time consuming or costly, and ultimately improve the guest experience. Mews technology helps hoteliers to create a tailored eco-system for their hotel by enabling integrations across a number of hospitality technologies. The integration of Optii is one example of how Ülemiste City Residences is tailoring its platform to automate and upgrade its housekeeping operations with the best guest experience in mind.
Matthijs Welle, CEO of Mews said, “The past year has highlighted how important automation and technology will play in the future of hotel operations. Adding Optii to our marketplace is a great solution for our customers and the hospitality industry. We strongly believe that these key integrations will help hoteliers update their daily operations so that they can tackle the new operating environment.”
Katherine Grass, CEO of Optii said, “This integration and partnership with Mews is very exciting, as we can team up our hospitality technology solutions to provide the best platform for hoteliers today. The new normal for hoteliers is still continually changing and we are working closely with our customers and partners to ensure we are equipping them with the right tools to not only run as efficiently as possible, but also to provide the best guest experience. The Mews partnership will help us do just that.”
Chris Hemmeter, Managing Director of Thayer Ventures said, “This partnership is bringing the best-in-class together when it comes to hotel operations, and it will provide hoteliers in key markets such as Europe and US the opportunity to transform their guest experience and their hotel operations and housekeeping. As European hotels are opening back up for the Summer season this is the perfect time for an integration of these two great technologies.”
