Berlin - The enhanced Hotelhero online platform provides hoteliers with free tools to centralize the search for new hotel software. As of now, hotel software providers can offer their solutions on this platform without being charged any commission. Within the next three months, the number of software systems for hotels is expected to increase by more than 500. Hotelhero also assists hotels with the optimization of the existing systems and the evaluation of new technologies.

Hotelhero was admitted into the METRO Accelerator powered by Techstars in November 2018, guided by selected experts from a pool of over 200 mentors, financed with up to 120.000 € and supported with METRO infrastructure, network, and know-how. "The right team spirit, dedication to the product and a customer-centric approach are the most important ingredients to become a successful startup... Hotelhero delivers on all three components, that's what we look for in founders joining our Metro Accelerator program," says Sylvia Dudek, Program Director of the METRO Accelerator. In close collaboration with selected experts and their customers, the team has enhanced its value proposition and business model during the Accelerator.

The expert and client feedback have confirmed that hotels have lost track dealing with the many solutions, apps, and tools on the market. "With so many software options to choose from, hotels have increased difficulties to find and implement the ideal solution for their hotel", says Florian Montag, Co-Founder, and CEO of Hotelhero. "By searching for the right software solution, hotels waste unnecessary time, energy and money when they do not know, where and what to look for."

To remedy this situation, Hotelhero has already listed over 100 software providers on the platform, and the team expects to add over 500 systems in the next three months. In the process, Hotelhero has discontinued the business model based on a provision from software providers. "We have decided to change our business model in order to guarantee the necessary neutrality which hoteliers expect from us", Montag explains. "In the near future, we will introduce new Premium- Features for hoteliers as well as for software providers which will go beyond the search for new technologies."

With the opening of the platform for all hotel software providers, Hotelhero meets the demand of over 400 hotels already using the platform today: to display the entire hotel software market, to make the hotel software search process as simple as possible, and to provide tailored software recommendations based on what similar hotels use. "Thanks to Hotelhero, hoteliers get a good overview of the technologies they are currently using and can make educated and confident purchasing decisions when buying new systems", says Wilhelm Weber, Managing Partner of Swiss Hospitality Solutions.
