Worldwide: Hospitality cloud system Mews has acquired restaurant management platform Bizzon, enabling hotels to integrate a digital ordering service.
Capabilities of Bizzon’s product include:
• Point of sale (POS) – a mobile-first service allowing employees to serve guests, take orders, and make payments from anywhere at the property
• Digital ordering – a web-based product allowing guests to order and pay without any staff intervention
• Inventory – restaurants can manage single or multi-warehouse inventories
• Payments – a module which supports both mobile and eCommerce payments in multiple currencies
Bizzon currently supports 500 hotel businesses across 15 countries in Europe and Asia-Pacific, including over 200 Accor properties. Several hundred more hotels are planned for rollout this year.
“Mews is setting a new standard for hospitality,” said Saša Šarunić and Ante Kotarac, co-founders of Bizzon. “They are laser-focused on simplifying and automating operations for hoteliers and guests and like us, the team has a bold vision to make this industry better. This is an incredibly exciting moment, and both our team and customers will be able to thrive with the resources and knowledge of Mews.”
The product line from Mews includes a fully integrated payment gateway in the Mews Hospitality Cloud. In 2021, Mews processed over one billion euros in card payments from over 2,000 properties around the world.
“Mews revolutionised property management systems by putting the guest at the centre of our product instead of rooms and inventory,” said Matthijs Welle, CEO of Mews. “As soon as we saw the Bizzon product, we knew that their team shared our vision and product principles. They’ve put the guest at the heart of their product and removed every friction point in the F&B and hotel journey.”
