Hospitality platform Apaleo has announced it now has 1,000 hotels and serviced apartment buildings using its platform, marking a doubling of locations in just 18 months.
Properties now span 24 countries worldwide and account for a total of 50,000 rooms, which now sees the makeup of its portfolio as 60% hotels and 40% serviced apartments.
To date the platform powers more than 40% of serviced apartments in Germany, where the company is headquartered.
Apaleo’s client base now includes staff-less serviced apartment operators like Limehome and Numa, Soho House-designed Mollie’s, Vagabond Club and Lindemann Hotels, among others.
Apaleo believes this “demonstrates the inherent flexibility of the platform”, as it can be adapted to suit any hospitality segment.
It puts success down to its API-first approach to property management, and its MACH architecture.
Hotel chain CitizenM recently selected the hospitality platform to “accelerate its innovation and effiency” and to drive its “ambitious plans” for growth.
Martin Reichenbach, CEO of Apaleo, said: “This is a huge milestone for us and it demonstrates the undeniable advantages of API-led, open hospitality platforms.
“The increasing adoption we’re seeing for this best-of-breed technology among hotel and serviced apartment brands shows that the legacy, all-in-one approach is slowly dying and that transformative platforms that empower companies to adapt to changing markets, and continuously renew and expand their guest offering, are the future.
“We’re excited to support forward-thinking hotel and serviced apartment brands as they transition away from legacy property management software systems, and we take great pride in leading the charge in the hospitality revolution."
