Mews acquires Frontdesk Anywhere PMS

Cloud-based hospitality platform Mews has acquired Frontdesk Anywhere, the San-Francisco-headquartered cloud hotel-management software.

The acquisition, which was managed by Mews Ventures, is the company's third such deal in North America in just under a year. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Launched in 2009, Frontdesk Anywhere is a cloud-based property-management system for independent hotels and management groups. In 2023, Mews surpassed 5,000 customers worldwide and processed more than $5 billion via Mews Payments. The addition of Frontdesk Anywhere will help the company automate operations for its hoteliers.

"Bringing Frontdesk Anywhere into the fold strengthens our offering and progresses our efforts further in North America where we have seen our strongest growth rate in 2023," Mews founder Richard Valtr said in a statement. "Being able to welcome in such an early cloud innovator in Frontdesk Anywhere further underscores our commitment to this continent and a desire to change the hotel tech landscape in all of North America."

The Frontdesk Anywhere acquisition marks the eighth acquisition for Mews Ventures, with previous acquired companies including HotelPerfect (2021), Cenium (2022), Bizzon (2022), Hotello (2023) and Nomi (2023).
