Montreal-based MConcierge Systems Inc., a maker of mobile-to-web software for the hospitality industry, has inked an undisclosed amount of financing from Real Ventures, Montreal Start Up, Palos Capital and Positron Inc. The money will help it expand software for hotels, which is a task management, content management and ordering system designed to integrate into existing IT infrastructures, PMS and other third party software. Real Ventures is a seed venture fund based in Montreal.
MConcierge Systems Inc., the leading mobile-to-web software solution provider for the hospitality industry, has secured an investment round subscribed by Real Ventures, Montreal Start Up, Palos Capital and Positron Inc. The company plans to use the funds to support further feature introductions to the world’s first GRM – Guest Relationship Management product.
The MConcierge system allows hotels to better serve their guests through a task management, content management and ordering system that integrate into existing IT infrastructures, PMS and other third party software. The current system provides software tools that allow hospitality brands to profile their clients through all stages of travel. These same tools provide travelers with the most engaging mobile and tablet experiences on the market today.
“We’re excited by the opportunity for growth this investment brings,” says Anthony Zebrowski-Rubin, CEO of MConcierge “We plan to use this capital to build the sales, support and marketing power needed to take our software and services to market.”
“The MConcierge team have demonstrated that they understand mobile, social and how it can be applied to the hospitality industry,” says John Stokes, Partner at Real Ventures. “Most importantly though, they have shown that they can scale a business and still exceed their customers expectation – a sure sign of success.”
The company is continuing to redefine the way hospitality brands communicate with their guests. The latest addition to the MConcierge portfolio, the Guest Relationship Management (GRM) platform, is a unique profiling engine, which captures social media and mobile data and leverages contextual algorithms to enable hospitality brands to improve the guest experience, build loyalty and increase sales.
