Shiji Group (“Shiji”) announces that it has acquired MyCheck, the leading payment and integration technology provider to the hospitality industry, from the technology venture capital fund of global businessman Eyal Ofer. The deal boosts the company’s growing number of strategic acquisitions in hospitality technology solutions.
Since its inception in 2011, MyCheck has grown from being a consumer-facing app providing simple guest navigation and payment services to offering a holistic platform of digital solutions, which – both individually or together – can equip hotels and restaurants with a secure, seamless and powerful engagement experience for their customers.
MyCheck offers services for various stages of the guest journey from the initial booking throughout the whole experience, including One-Click Payment, Digital Check-In/Out, and Digital Dining Experience.
With over 70 customers, partners and integrated platforms, including Alipay, Apple Pay, Google, Oracle and NCR, MyCheck is a well-suited and valuable addition to the expanding Shiji Group family of businesses.
“The acquisition of a company like MyCheck, with its mission to offer integrated technology solutions for the hospitality sector, will deliver real value for Shiji as we drive the industry forward to be more technologically connected,” said Kevin King, Chief Operating Officer of Shiji. “Both Shiji clients and MyCheck customers will now benefit from the synergies and greater depth of resources that come from combining the Shiji network with MyCheck’s leading payment solutions.”
Shlomit Kugler, CEO of MyCheck, said, “Joining the Shiji Group offers a unique opportunity to expand and deliver our vision of seamless, easy-to-use digital products for hotel and restaurant customers that will provide greater payment connectivity for the entire hospitality industry. We’ve been lucky enough to benefit from game-changing investment, insight, guidance and support from O.G. Tech in accelerating our growth and propelling us on our way. It’s an exciting time as we look forward to expanding further through Shiji’s global presence and increased, more localized support for our existing customers.”
