The Shiji Group has acquired StayNTouch. The addition of StayNTouch’s cloud-based hotel management tools to Shiji’s hotel technology stack will enable both sets of customers to seamlessly integrate across multiple hotel and travel technology systems, the company said.
Continuing the strategy of innovation through development or acquisitions and integrations, Shiji sees StayNTouch as an important part of making hotel management technology mobile. Scalable from small hotels, to more than 1,000-room hotels, StayNTouch has hotel-management solutions for complete or partial mobile hotel property management.
StayNTouch’s modular design of the system makes it usable for hotels that already have an on-premises PMS or hotels that want to shift to future-proof, cloud-based systems.
“Our vision is that the future of hotel technology needs to be open and accessible to every hotel group or technology provider,” Shiji Group COO Kevin King. “If hotels want everything or just a part of the stack we want the technology to integrate as seamlessly as possible and be available to all.”
StayNTouch will be integrated into Shiji Group as a fully owned subsidiary. Jos Schaap, CEO and founder of StayNTouch, will continue to lead the company and take an active role in Shiji's senior management team focused on global expansion. Shiji has been invested in StayNTouch since 2016.
The focus for StayNTouch as a Shiji Group brand will be to accelerate its successful growth trajectory using Shiji Group’s existing network of sales and support teams, in the U.S. and China, throughout Europe and Asia/Pacific.
