“One of the main questions hoteliers ask one another at major industry conferences is what solutions they’re using that drive results. Time and time again, we heard that M3 is the go-to accounting solution for top hotels in the U.S. After months of conversations about entering the Canadian market, we are thrilled to finally implement M3’s Accounting Core and Operations Management products. We were most impressed with the fact that M3 is rooted in the hotel industry and is truly a hotel-first solution,” said Murray. “After learning more about the company and testing out other hospitality accounting platforms, we found that M3’s specialized accounting services were the perfect fit for Genesis properties.” – Jonathan Murray, Genesis Hospitality Chief Financial Officer
"We were initially attracted to M3 because their products are tailor-made for hotels. During our first demo, we knew immediately that M3 was for us. The operational module is like nothing else we've seen and will take our brand to new heights. With M3, our GMs can spend more time engaging staff and customers and less time budgeting.” – Chantal Nappert, InnVest Vice President of Finance
“We are thrilled to welcome Genesis and InnVest to the M3 family. While we’ve had single-property locations outside the U.S. use M3 in the past, Genesis and InnVest represent larger portfolios and companies with aggressive growth plans that realize our entire mission to contribute to their long-term success by providing a robust, industry-specific and scalable solution for their financial and data insight needs. After analyzing the Canadian market and meeting with the Genesis and InnVest leadership teams, it was clear that these partnerships fit nicely with M3’s growth strategy.” –Scott Watson, M3’s Chief Sales & Marketing Officer and Partner
