French hotel groups invest in RoomChecking

Astotel Group, Maurice Hurand Hotels and BPI follow into AccorHotels's footsteps, investing in hotel technology as the future of hotel management, and offer 750,000 EUR late seed-funding to RoomChecking, a hotel communications, housekeeping, and maintenance system startup.

Founded in 2013 as a project between Jonathan Wiezman, Aaron Marz and Emile Lugassy, RoomChecking aims to improve workflows in hotel maintenance and housekeeping. The company is already a Microsoft Ventures Paris promising startup, and has a dedicated customer base of 150 plus hotels.

"Managing a hotel is much more than walls, decoration and staff," said Leon Cachan, CEO of Astotel. "We see technology as one of the biggest differentiators in the future of hotel operations and those who adopt technology will be those who deliver the best guest experience. Today guests expect everything to be perfect and to happen instantly. Without a solid set of technology tools, it will be very hard for hotels to live up and exceed guest expectations.”

Great hotels understand that technology will help them take guest experience to the next level and they're our priority because they know what the real work is all about."
