EDINBURGH, Scotland, Sept. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — September 2020 sees the announcement of a new and exciting partnership in the hotel tech space between voucher and gift card tech disruptor VoucherCart and property management solution Mews.
VoucherCart allows hotels to create, promote and sell their products and services as vouchers, gift cards, memberships, and tickets for events, providing hotels with payment in full and in advance, generating much needed up-front revenue.
In addition to pre-payment for hotels, the power and flexibility of VoucherCart’s e-commerce toolset mean hotels can sell seamlessly through their website, social media, and email, right across their portfolio of products and services including Accommodation packages, Restaurants, and F&B, Spa, Leisure, and more. It’s an entirely new and much-needed revenue channel.

The integration between VoucherCart and the Mews hospitality cloud allows a seamless checkout for guests using their vouchers as payment for hotel services. It comes at a crucial time for the hotel sector as the challenges of revenue generation play out across the hospitality industry globally.
The COVID pandemic has forced a shift in strategy and revenue focus for hotels globally. Allowing hotels to take payment in full and in advance for their products and services is a godsend. It will be crucial for the survival of many hotel operators through COVID, as well as for prosperity and revenue growth on the other side of the pandemic.
VoucherCart CEO, Doug MacLennan, says:
“We’re excited to partner with Mews in the hospitality tech space. Much like VoucherCart, Mews are pioneers of change and process improvement in the hospitality sector. Their view of guest engagement and overhaul of the outdated processes which have constrained efficiency and impeded growth in the past is refreshing and welcomed. We look forward to working with Mews to deliver revenue and profit growth for our valued customers.”
Mews CEO, Matt Welle, says:
“In challenging times like these, it’s important that the hospitality industry keeps moving forward. We’re really happy to welcome VoucherCart to the Mews Marketplace, where they join hundreds of hospitality’s best, most innovative solutions. Vouchers and flexible booking terms are key today to travel experiences, and VoucherCart has a strong track record of delivering revenue growth for hotels. We’re excited for our customers to experience this for themselves and bring guests back through their doors.”
