The Peninsula Hotels Signs Landmark Technology Deal with Shiji for Complete Enterprise Platform Solution
Hong Kong - Shiji Group has signed a partnership with The Peninsula Hotels to provide the hotel group with Shiji Enterprise Platform, the industry's scalable, secure and modern hospitality technology platform.
The brand was looking for a scalable technology platform that could manage the high expectations of guests and staff, considering its global and growing footprint. It needed an advanced technology platform that met many requirements which had not existed in the market before.
Shiji Group's Enterprise Platform has been in design and pilot phases since 2015 under the name AC Project. The platform provides enterprise hotel companies with scalable, state-of-the-art technology and architecture, security compliance and business continuity, and allows connectivity between systems to facilitate strategic business success.
In the last two years, the platform has grown in functionality, adding services such as Restaurant Management, Table Management, Data Intelligence, Recreation and Spa solutions. Additional functions of guest preferences and hotel management services being added make it a true enterprise platform for hospitality businesses.
"We are delighted to build upon our relationship with The Peninsula Hotels to implement our Enterprise Platform. The enterprise solution was built for global hotel brands like The Peninsula Hotels to improve their operational efficiencies by providing a technology platform that guarantees a truly seamless and personalized guest experience for their hotel guests. The Shiji Enterprise Platform will combine the core functions of The Peninsula Hotels' technologies and enable improved operations and future success," said Kevin King, Chief Operating Officer of Shiji Group.
"We have partnered with Shiji Group to implement the Shiji Enterprise Platform, as it is the ideal technology solution for a global and diverse hotel brand like ours. With properties in multiple locations across the globe, we needed a reliable and scalable solution to integrate all our systems throughout our properties. As a luxury hotel brand, it is critical for us to provide a high level of personalization for our customers, while keeping their data secure. Shiji's Enterprise Platform is providing that for us, and we are looking forward to deploying it into our hotels to offer an elevated guest experience for our guests," said Shane Izaks, Group Director, Information Technology of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited (HSH).
